I don't usually have breakfast - I've never been a breakfast fan and since going keto, I usually have my coffee and then eat my first meal around noon. Mind you, sometimes this meal is breakfast-y because I live for poached eggs, however I rarely eat a full meal before noon. I do usually have some of this Chia Pudding...
I'm not a huge fan of nutritional supplements at all. I have always - since a young age - steered clear of pills to get my nutrition and focused on getting it through my actual nutrition: the food I put in my body. So, while I never say never, this may be the only time I recommend supplements. A little background:...

Everyone touts the benefits of Bulletproof coffee - especially on a Ketogenic diet. And everyone has their preferred methods of making it - with slight variations all over the web. I've been drinking a cup of Bulletproof coffee each morning for about three years now - long before I started living a Ketogenic lifestyle. I've modified it for a number...
As I've mentioned, I've had weight struggles since my late teens, however after I had my children and approached 40 years old, it got all the more difficult. While I was working out, eating well and keeping my carb intake under control, the pounds - specifically in my midsection - kept creeping on. And, my hormones were all over the...
I don't like to brag, but I've been told on many occasions that I make the best pancakes, ever. My secret is pretty simple: instead of buttermilk, I "sour" milk using vinegar - I know it sounds odd but some strange chemistry happens which when all the ingredients are mixed with the milk mixture, magical pancakes result. So, it's been...
Fat bombs have been my savior at the end of the day when I still need to hit my macros but also want a sweet treat. I'll be posting many fat bomb recipes (stay tuned!) however this is the first one to go up because it's definitely my favorite to date. With a healthy mix of fat from coconut oil...
There's a lot of debate about collagen peptides (sometimes confused with collagen protein) and it's benefits or if it's just another trend that will fade out. While the debate rages on, there's some real science and health facts about why supplementing your diet with collagen peptides can be beneficial. I've been adding collagen peptides to my Bulletproof coffee recipe...
One of the hardest things I had to give up on Keto was my coffee. Well, more specifically, the SUGARY CREAMER in my coffee. While I have been drinking Bulletproof coffee for years, I did use Sugar-Free Coffee-Mate in it. While some people use Sugar-Free creamers in their Keto diet and it's technically ok on Keto, the sweeteners used...

My Story

Growing up, I remember my weight always being an issue. Not that I was consistently overweight, but my weight fluctuated from my teens well into my college years and beyond. I would go from super skinny to overweight through the years - without much understanding of why. I realized in my high school years that I did respond well...

What are macros anyway? Success with Keto really comes down to one thing: your macros. What are macros? They're the amount of grams of fat, protein and carbs you need to get to enter and maintain ketosis. So, we know we want to be in the 60% - 75% fat, 5% - 10% carbs and 15% - 30% protein -...
