Cooking: Macaroni and Cheese (Keto or Not)

I’ve always been a HUGE fan of macaroni and cheese.  For many years I just used the boxed stuff but when we started keto that was no longer an option.  I decided to try and create my own cheese sauce and use keto friendly noodles and when I did it was an instant hit with…

Weight Loss: Restart

So… I fell off the wagon.  Yep, it happened.  Most of last year I was off and on Keto and while I could blame it on the pandemic and the trauma of three miscarriages which would be mostly true,  it was really my own willpower that failed me and for that I take responsibility. I…

Cooking: Salmon Patties

I’ve been eating these since I was a kid, and honestly I love them!  They are super easy to make and delicious as well.  When we started doing keto I revised my mother’s recipe to fit my diet and even she says she likes them more than her own! The best thing about this recipe…

Infertility: Please stop saying these things

I don’t want to sound rude, or disrespectful because SOME of the time people have good intentions in what they say BUT there are just certain things that may not be obvious to someone not going through infertility that you should absolutely not say to someone who is. I wrote about this in another blog…

Life: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

So this year we took Christmas to the next level.  Don’t laugh at me, promise?  As soon as we finished handing out Halloween candy to the cute little trick-or-treaters I pulled out the Christmas decorations and before the night was over we had the Christmas tree up! You promised you wouldn’t laugh! This year we…

Finances: Stop! Don’t throw away your receipts!

I am always looking for ways to save or earn money because passive money really adds up!  I usually put all the money I earn through passive means away for Christmas shopping at the end of the year and doing so I rarely have to spend any money out of pocket! So let’s get to…

Cooking: Fried Rice (Keto or Not)

It took me quite a bit of time to perfect my fried rice recipe but by golly, I have figured out the perfect combination! Ingredients: 2 Cups Cooked Rice/Miracle Rice/Cauliflower Rice 1/2 Cup Diced Onion 1/4 Cup Diced Green Onion 1/4 Cup Diced Carrots 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce 4-5 Eggs (whisked) Sesame Oil Butter White…

Infertility: RPL Testing

After our third miscarriage I was finally diagnosed with recurrent pregnancy loss. I knew this was coming, I just felt it after our second miscarriage. As much as doctors try to normalize two consecutive miscarriages it’s not normal, at least not in my opinion. After our OBGYN telling us we were going to miscarry our…

Weight Loss: Keto Favorites! Pt. V

Here are more of our Keto favorites! Mauna Loa Garlic and Onion Macadamia Nuts These are OMG so delicious.  I have found that they really curb my chip craving (when I have one that is).  In my opinion they taste just like sour cream and onion chips but even better.  Be careful though, it is…
