Ice Cream!

I’ve been on an ice cream kick lately.  I found Rebel ice cream at our local HyVee, which is pretty good.  The texture isn’t quite right to me, but it’s not bad if you don’t want to make your own.  But remember how good homemade ice cream is?  Well,...

What We’ve Been Up To

If you’re new to keto and you’d like to get more information on how and why this way of eating works for weight loss and wellness, be sure to check out our favorite resources. We took a little hiatus from our June meetings because 1) We moved!  To Chatham,...

Keto Barbecue Sauce

Pizza Skillet

This has become our favorite way to have pizza.  No, there’s no crust.  But really, we do not miss crust anymore.  How is that possible?  I dunno.  As much as we loved bread all our lives; after three years eating keto, we’re all about the main ingredients–cheese, sauce, meats,...
