Where to Get Fiber on a Keto Diet?

If that kind of food makes you feel good. And I’m talking physically here. I’m primarily about health. But animal cruelty IS something to think about. Let’s talk…

Taste Test Review of Daily Bread’s Omega Buns

Buns? On A Low-Carb, Ketogenic Diet? But I thought buns were made of wheat. And wheat is a big No-No on keto, right? Because flour = carbs and all that. Am I mistaken? No, if you asked yourself these questions about typical buns, you would not be wrong. But these Omega Buns I received from Daily Bread LLC are not your run-of-the-mill bread product! And I have to tell you, I’m impressed! Not only was…

Bill Gates Thinks We Should All Eat Fake Meat

Fake Meat. It’s What’s For Dinner At least if Bill Gates has anything to say about it.

Keto Secret Weapon Number 3 – Chocolate Whipped Cream

This simple recipe for chocolate whipped cream saved my life (well, not literally…but kinda!) the first time I followed a low-carb diet! It was W-A-Y back in 1982 when I was only 20 years old. My husband (at the time) was in the U.S. Army and had just been deployed to Germany. Our two-year-old son and I had not been approved for an accompanied tour (yet) so, we moved ‘back home’ to Utah while we…
