Sugar-Free Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Nutella is one of the words greatest wonders. It is such an indulgence for me that I just had to figure out how to make this stuff without feeling so bad about eating it. After a quick google search I was amazed to find that it’s actually so much easier to make than I thought.

You can have your (low carb) pizza and eat it too

I love pizza and being on a low carb diet has really hampered with my ability to enjoy this amazing dish. After seeing a post about “Fathead dough” my life was changed forever.

Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice  

To begin with I want to remind everyone that anytime you substitute something you have to go into it knowing that it is most likely not going to be the same as the original.
With that being said last week I made some cauliflower chicken fried rice. Cauliflower is amazing because it can be used to mimic all kinds of other things because of mild taste. Some like it in their pizza crust, some like it mashed and some like it riced.

Two weeks & Seven Pounds Later

It’s update time!!! I know it’s not as exciting as mail time *insert Blue’s Clues song* but I do have some very exciting news to share. I have lost SEVEN pounds! Yes you read that right, a whole seven pounds since I started the Ketogenic diet almost two weeks ago.

How did I do it you ask? Simple I reduced the number of calories I consume a day, by eating lots of (healthy) fats, moderate amounts of protein and low amounts of carbs and sugar. Read my first blog post, What the Keto?  to learn more.

These two weeks have taught me some really important things about making a lifestyle change, keep reading to see what those are.

What the Keto? 

Ketogentics, ever heard of it? No? Yeah me too until last week I had no idea what it was. Basically it is a high fat, low carb and moderate protein diet. It means you can eat bacon, eggs and butter all day and still lose weight and be healthier. Sounds too good to be true right? Well it’s not and is actually so much better for you because as humans we are natural fat burners.
