Low Carb, Healthier Versions of Your Favorite Comfort Foods

Comfort food is called “comfort food” because of the feelings it envokes; food can calm nerves, relieve stress and brighten moods. Food can warm up our bodies when it is brutally cold and bitter outside. Food is also a great way to bring people together for fellowship and community. Most people tend to reach for food that is higher in carbohydrates during times like these, but when you are following a low carb or keto diet, you still can crave…

Natural Keto Friendly Coffee | Focus, Energy, Weight Loss

Coffee…how I love thee. Seriously, I am a bit obsessed with coffee. And not even because I have seven children and need the caffeine – I could drink decaf all day as long as it is strong and delicious. Waking up early in the morning is so much easier when I know I have a strong cup of coffee waiting for me! Since implementing a keto lifestyle, I have gone back and forth with my choice of creamers. I obviously…

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…

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. Typically, beef stew consists of lots of carbs, which isn’t something you want to indulge in when trying to maintain ketosis. Thankfully, this beef stew allows me to indulge without feeling any guilt! A traditional beef stew, with fall-apart tender beef, vegetables, and rich broth, is almost impossible to pull off on a weeknight. It can take two to three…

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…
