Happy Memorial Day!!!

While we are celebrating this weekend lets always remember why we have this weekend and remember and pray for all those brave men and women and their families who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we can live free with our families. Both Mr. Low Carb and my families have had many members that served in the military for our freedoms and even served in some war we are thankful to not have lost any loved ones to the wars. Our hearts and prayers are with all of those that have lost loved ones for our freedoms. We will never forget.

Pepperoni basil bites

Being the mom of 8 kiddos my life primarily, or seems as though it does, revolves around schooling them and getting to and from activities. Getting time with other mom’s whose lives also revolve around their children’s schedules is a rare commodity sometimes. We wouldn’t have it any other way and the time with the children goes way too fast. But sometimes we need to connect and renew so the kids hang with daddy and the mom’s get together and chat while drinking wine…er I mean water, yeah, water(after Jesus comes by)that’s what we drink!

Chocolate Cheesecake Deliciousness

I have been having a hankering for a nice dessert and cheese cake seemed to fit the bill nicely. Much to my chagrin I have never made a cheesecake, at least not one that didn’t come from a box. I am not much of a dessert person to begin with so it’s pretty typical not to make desserts, though I used to make a mean cookie! I try not to have many sweets low carb or not, but every now and then it is a nice treat. We had a potluck dinner last week so I decided to try my hand at a chocolate cheesecake because like bacon, chocolate also makes everything better!

A Little Light Reading

In an effort to continually learn and further my knowledge on all things health and nutrition related I have compiled a nice stack of some light reading material! This does not include the books I have already read, which include Dr. Fung’s Obesity Code, The Complete Guide to Fasting, Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes book and several others, it also does not include the spiritual books I am currently reading. Besides this stack I have about 9 more on my Amazon shopping list that my library did not have. I am very picky on what authors I read and who I take any health information from. One thing that will get them thrown out of the stack pretty much right away is any conflict of interests, depending on what it is, as well as really crazy out there advice. All of these made the cut!

Have your Rolls and Eat them too!

Going LCHF/Ketogenic doesn’t mean you have to give up bread! This Keto Roll recipe is simple to make and doesn’t take fancy ingredients. The fanciest ingredient needed is Psyllium husk powder, which should be a staple in your kitchen, and the rest are ingredients almost everyone would have on hand. You can even change it up by adding different seasonings such as garlic for a lovely garlic roll to go with a yummy spaghetti squash dish! So versatile!

Bacon Fried Radishes

While perusing the recipe section at Diet Doctorhttps://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/recipes I saw a recipe with radishes. Now I have never used radishes before but I have used bacon and bacon makes everything better. I have had radishes in salads before but never prepared buy me. I was feeling adventurous, so while at the store I picked up some radishes. Not being familiar with them I didn’t know there were different types, they had some whitish ones and some lovely pink ones and then ugly black ones all in the same thing and only one price listed.
