Busting 5 Keto Myths

Busting 5 Keto Myths

(Yup, this is my picture.) There are a lot of stereotypes and some misconceptions about keto floating around the web.  I know that I fell victim to believing a few of these and it’s initially what turned me off from trying the lifestyle. Today I […]

My Version of Keto

My Version of Keto

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was hesitant to try keto because I wasn’t too thrilled with the info I found online about it.  It was super dairy heavy and there was so much confusion about carb amounts.  No matter what lifestyle you […]

Freezing Gravy

Freezing Gravy

We eat a roast chicken just about every week.  One chicken provides two meals for two people plus leftovers to be used in lunches or as part of other meals. Plus, if I roast the chicken myself, I can use the bones for stock.  One […]

Grainless Granola

Grainless Granola

Apple and Jicama Slaw

Warmer weather is finally here to stay.  At least for a bit, there’s no snow in the immediate forecast and I’m loving it.  I admit that while Fall is my favorite season, I love summer in Fort Collins. The sky is a ridiculous color of blue, […]
