Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (5 Ingredients!)

Confession: I found a similar Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe on TikTok (anyone else addicted?) and decided to alter the ingredients to make it a keto-friendly version! At first I thought there was no way you could make flourless cookies that taste great with only 5 ingredients, but I have to say, they came [...]

The Cereal School Review – Keto-Friendly Cereal!

Ever since I was a little kid, cereal has always been my favorite food. Even in high school, my stepfather used to joke and ask my mom if I ever ate anything besides cereal. Unfortunately, I stopped eating it in my 20's due to the carb bloat I would get around my midsection from all [...]

10 Best Keto-Friendly Brands

So, I’m trying the Keto diet. Which I’m sure you’ve heard of, since it’s all the rage right now. (If you haven’t, the short version is that it focuses on a high fat, low carb diet so that you’re body burns fat.) The real reason I’m trying it isn’t because I’m trying to lose weight, [...]

Keto Low-Carb Mint Chip Ice Cream

The hardest thing about the keto diet is finding ice cream that's low-carb, tastes yummy, and doesn't upset my stomach. The store-bought low-carb ice cream brands I've tried have all contain sugar alcohols, which don't agree with me. The only brands I've discovered so far that don't bother me are Lily's Chocolate and Monkfruit Classic, [...]

DIY Tips for Glowing Skin and Reducing Wrinkles

Last year, as my mid-30's came creeping around the corner, I started noticing things about my skin that I had never noticed before. Did I always have under eye bags? And forehead lines? And loose skin in the middle of my neck? I've always had good skin, so it wasn't something I really paid attention [...]

Burrito Bowl

This burrito bowl is one of my favorite lunch dishes, and it's so simple to throw together. You're welcome to use any kind of cheese for the topping. My personal favorite topping is crumbled goat cheese, but shredded light cheddar or part-skim mozzarella are both great choices, and those on a vegan diet can use [...]

Coco-Roons: My New Favorite Vegan Cookies!

If you've read any of my other blog posts, then you know how much I LOVE healthy snacks. Especially if they're vegan. And gluten-free. And contain coconut.  I was shopping at Walmart this weekend and my friend and I discovered Sejoyia Coco-Roons in the gluten-free section. We were looking for healthy poolside snacks, and needless to [...]

These little bite-sized protein balls are not only raw and vegan, but they only take 10 minutes to make (no baking required!) and they're so tasty! I just made them for the first time a few weeks ago and I've been hooked ever since. They're a great pre-workout boost since they're loaded with protein from oats, [...]

Egg Frittata Muffins

One of the reasons many of us struggle with maintaining a clean diet is lack of time. Daily meal preparation can be extremely time consuming, which I think is why a lot of us end up purchasing store-bought food – because it’s faster and easier than slaving in the kitchen after a long day of [...]
