The Perfect Hotel For Families || The Residence Inn

Before we had children, my husband an I used to travel quite frequently. Most people think of romantic, sunny beaches when they think of traveling; we have always enjoyed visiting cities.

We really didn’t want to give up traveling, so as our family has grown, we have…

5 High Fat Foods To Help You Lose Weight

We have heard it before: Gram for gram, fat has more than twice the calories of protein or carbohydrates, and eating too many calories leads to weight gain; therefore, people should eat less fat. Right? Not so fast. While reducing calories does work for short-term weight loss, sustainable, long-term weight loss is a bit more complicated. According to the The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, long-term weight loss depends on how the body processes and interacts with food and all its nutrients, not just its calories. How else could…

A Review of The Inn At St. Botolph | Boston

Traveling with a large family can be difficult, especially in cities. We love to travel as a family, as always have. We started traveling as a couple and have continued to travel, no matter how many kids we have added. The only thing that gets a bit difficult is finding hotels that can accommodate larger families. When I found we were going to Boston, I started my research and found The Inn at St. Botolph, located behind the Hynes Convention…

Instant Pot Low Carb Beef Stew

Thank goodness for this Instant Pot beef stew recipe! After starting a Keto diet, I was missing my favorite comfort foods.

Free Ditch The Sugar Challenge

SUGAR… I have a love-hate relationship with sugar. I mean, I love chocolate…really love it. Cookies, and brownies, and cakes are my weakness. But I also hate sugar for the way it makes me feel. It’s so addictive! And I can’t stand the sugar crashes after the spikes. It’s always been a crazy cycle for me: cutting back on sugar so I can feel better and then giving in to temptation and going overboard. After starting a Keto diet, I…
