Once upon a time I was a Chinese-food-take-out kind of girl. Now that my carb eating days are over I have had to find unique and safe ways to get my Asian fix. There are many tasty things at Chinese places but if you really think about what your favorite things are they probably involve noodles, sugary sauce, gluten, and rice. It’s not your fault it’s just the most common Chinese food for most Americans.
Weight loss while eating Chinese food? Yes please! It’s time to take that carby classic and convert it keto style! FRIED RICE…CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

Keto in Cuba!
Holla mi amigo! I just got back from Cuba and man did I learn a lot! Keto in other countries can be pretty hard, especially if you don’t speak the language at all/very well. The typical Cuban diet consists of rice, beans, plantains, and sugar. Sounds scary, right? Through trial and error my husband and I learned to navigate the vintage car filled streets and eat our way to…safety?
Most restaurants in Havana are called a paladars. They are houses that have been turned into private restaurants owned by a family vs. owned by the government. No matter where you go every meal is served with rice and beans. At first we asked them not to serve them-I hate to waste but quickly stopped doing that as it seemed to be rude. We really didn’t want to offend anyone and just wanted to enjoy the culture so we left our mounds of rice and beans untouched.
So other than rice and beans what can you expect?

Those Toppings tho
Pizza Pizza Pizza. Pizza of my eye. Oh, how we love you because of all the things but more specifically the flavor combination you provide.
My husband calls me a food stacker. It’s true though. I find that if I can have a small bite of all the flavors in one I can really create amazing combinations and of course that involves Pizza. I mean, how could it not?
I think its time to take a leap and talk about what goes on our pizza vs what the crust is made of. After all, toppings can make or break a pizza.

It’s time to meet your new best friend: Meatzah!
No, you didn’t read that incorrectly, I said Meatzah. The base of this pizza is made entirely out of meat. You can’t pick it up and eat it like you can with fat head pizza and it doesn’t crunch BUT it tastes OUTSTANDING.

There it was, my belly, protruding and extended as if I were pregnant with twins. To be clear I’m not preggers (sorry Dad) I’m just full of a non-keto binge-food-baby. I sat in the tub pondering what had I done to get to this point and how can I stop it from happening again?
My internal monologue went as follows, ‘You deserve a cheat now and again. In 2016 you lost over 100 pounds. You should be proud of yourself.’ As my belly stuck out of the water like an iceberg I noticed something mortifying, my stretch marks weren’t as noticeable as they were 5 days ago. I am either so bloated that my skin is stretching back out or I have gained more weight than I realize. What the heck am I thinking? No, no I didn’t ‘deserve’ a piece of chocolate cheesecake or ‘deserve’ to eat those crackers or that piece of ice-cream cake for my birthday or those Mexican chips and salsa or the trail mix or the…all the things. Why is it in our society we celebrate with food that punishes our bodies? My body was doing so well and it didn’t deserve the onslaught of sugar and gluten but somehow I had convinced myself it had.
Well I did it. I cheated BIG time and instead of excusing it or hiding from it I’m going to let the world know. I am going to own up and say... READ MORE

I love when one item has a MILLION different purposes, especially if all of those purposes are for eating! In related news: Cheese is the most magically delicious thing ever (second to bacon obviously). This gift from the cow gods is so multi-functional it can be used for sweet and savory dishes, and can be added to just about ANYTHING to make it better, (except coffee...DON’T ask me how I know this, I finally managed to suppress the memory). There are so many different textures, flavors, and types of cheese, which is wonderful news for us, because doing the Keto diet lends itself to exploring cheese in its all its glory. Here are a few examples of how I use cheese:
As breading for when I fry or bake things, nothing beats that savory crunch!
Making crackers & bread
Desserts! (cheesecake, pudding, & so much more)
As a binder
On its own (obvs!)
Let’s start with the Do’s and Don’ts of choosing cheese. When picking out a cheese, the first thing to do is...Click for the Full Article!
