Happy Wednesday! What a week it has been so far. I am definitely looking forward to an entire week off of school next week- this mind needs a break! I started off today with 20oz of Sangria Zinger tea with 1 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar in it. Also had a cup of coffee with… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday 8/16
Before I dive into my keto friendly meals for today, I wanted to announce that I have been offered a full time position with the company that I work for! It's been a great two years leading up to this point and I am so excited to continue growing professionally 🙂 For breakfast: My usual… Continue reading What I Ate Wednesday 8/9/17
I am a huge fan of burrito bowls but really have not been able to have them since starting keto, due to the high carbs in beans and rice. The hubby and I have been loving how similar cauliflower rice tastes to regular rice, so I thought I'd give it a whirl for dinner tonight!… Continue reading Keto Friendly Burrito Bowl
As of Friday I weighed in at 173, putting me down a total of 21 pounds! I am now down another jean size as well. All I can say is WOW 🙂 What is working best for me lately is sticking to the diet closely. I will admit the first month on keto I was… Continue reading Keto Strong
I used some vacation days this week and it lined up perfectly with my mom's day off, so we headed north to Frankenmuth for the night! We stopped at Birch Run Outlets first and shopped until we worked up an appetite. Then it was off to check-in at the Bavarian Inn and start our little… Continue reading Frankenmuth Shenanigans!
For the most part I have been very good on this Keto diet. But the second my husband mentioned he wanted to check out Traverse City this weekend, I knew I had to let it go and indulge. And yes, it does make you feel sick when you go from barely any carbs/sugar to ALLLLL… Continue reading Cheat Weekend- Mini Vacation Edition
In my efforts to be healthier, I have tried the majority of the veggie "noodles" out there. A select few I can tolerate but it seems like none of them have the right texture or taste to trick me into thinking I'm eating actual noodles. My mom gave me a box of Banza chickpea elbow… Continue reading Banza
Afternoon friends! I thought I'd share our delicious lunch with you all today. The turkey is super delicious and you can pretty much do anything with it. I opted for a salad, and the hubby went for a burrito 🙂 Chop up 1 yellow bell pepper, 1 orange bell pepper, and 1/2 a white onion… Continue reading Easy & Low Carb Lunch!
Yes, you're reading that right. Sometimes you just know when something is no longer serving you and it is time to close the chapter. My goal this year was to practice the veggie life about 90% of the time, and while it was an amazing experience and opened my eyes to so many new foods… Continue reading My Veggie Year- Early Conclusion
We dined at many of the specialty restaurants on board the Harmony of the Seas, but one of them stood out above the rest: Wonderland. Wonderland has an "Alice in Wonderland" theme, and the way they deconstruct/rebuild the dishes is outstanding. The flavor combinations and presentations are delightful. If you've never heard of molecular gastronomy,… Continue reading Wonderland
