Last week, we tried out a new recipe! If you’ve read my blog before, you’re probably getting the picture that the mister and I are creatures of habit. When we find something we like, we tend to stick with it. Recipes are no different. Well, I have to say that we’ve found a winner in this delicious Crockpot Beef Roast from Life as the Coats. Difficulty Level: Easy Mode This recipe was incredibly simple. It takes five ingredients, and only […]
Winter is coming. No, this isn’t a post about Game of Thrones. But winter is definitely on the way, and with it comes the holidays. I don’t know about you, but the holidays are Enemy #1 for my waistline. Last year was the first time I didn’t gain any weight over Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I’m going to share with you just how I managed that with a little survival guide. UGH Not Another One I know, I know. Like you […]
Last week we managed to stick to the menu every single day. It was a small miracle! And surprisingly, the Ultimate Keto Buns I made on Sunday held up through the entire week.
I can’t tell you what a lifesaver planning a menu can be. Once we sit down and figure out what we want to eat all week, we make a grocery list and then hit the market. This gets all of our shopping out of the way and allows me to come straight home after work. Planning makes perfect Luckily for me, we decided on making keto buns yesterday and we designed our menu around their use. If I’d had to […]
Mimi’s Monday Menu Update: It’s time again for another look at our weekly menu! As I mentioned in my Weekend Weigh-in, I think I finally have down what works best for the mister and me. We always plan on at least two nights of eating out per week, and four nights of cooking in. Yes, I know that only accounts for 6 nights a week, but that’s because Saturday (or occasionally Sunday) is our cheat day, and it is entirely […]
Why Do I Want to Change? There are a lot of people out there these days that are all about big is beautiful and calling out body shaming and every size is sexy and beautiful. I’m not here to rain on anyone’s parade, but some days I feel like it’s damned if I do change, damned if I don’t change. There are some out there who would call me a disgusting pig because of my weight. Then there are those […]
This week, we’ll be trying out one new main dish recipe as well as two favorites. I found a new recipe for low-carb breaded chicken tenders, and I thought we could try them on some delicious keto buns. I might make two batches of the buns so we can have some for other meals as well.
There’s something so comforting about a grilled cheese sandwich. That crispy, buttery outside, and that ooey, gooey center. Pair it with a cup of hot, creamy tomato soup and you have an autumn and winter staple that hits the right spot on a chilly day. I miss it. You know, because I can’t have the bread. If like me, you’ve been missing that delicious, melt-in-your-mouth sandwich, I have good news!
