  • CREAM OF BROCCOLI SOUP

    This silky and delicious soup is the perfect dinner for low-calorie days. Eat a bowl along with a green salad and you will feel amazingly light when you wake up the following morning.         I like to include a potato as it thickens the soup and gives it a little more body. It helps you to feel ... View Post
  • DROP A POUND A WEEK

    The trick to eating pasta and not gaining weight is simple for me: add at LEAST half the amount of veggies and protein. I grew up right next door to Italy. Pasta is no stranger to my lunch or dinner table. Please try to have some sort of portion control going on. Try eating several smaller meals ... View Post
  • SWITCHING FROM SUGAR TO HONEY

      Making the switch from refined sugar to honey.   I never liked nor ate honey until about 10 years ago. I was entering mid-life and allergies started bugging me. A bit in spring and then in a more serious way by the end of the summer. Bad enough that I had to take allergy meds as I was not able ... View Post
  • Prepping for my KETO

    Reading up on Keto I realize just what a huge challenge this will be for me. It barely allows for more than a mouthful of veggies as they contain carbs.

  • KETO Journey - My Conclusion

Reason being: I was out of energy, the exact reason why I gave this much-loved diet a try. My cut and dry opinion of Keto: I think like any other diet out there it is not the way to go if ...

  • Vegetarian KETO Prep

    If you read my post yesterday, I figured out how to keep the daily carbs below 20 grams a day as needed to go into Ketosis. Today’s issue was easier; how can I get my daily 120-150 grams of protein and stick to the rules🤔. I have ordered vegetarian Keto protein powder. No carbs, plenty of protein... View Post
  • Vegetarian KETO Day 27

    No matter how good they make it look like, this Keto way of eating is pure discipline. Sure, you can eat that piece of apple pie. But it takes up lots of your carbs for the day. This is day 27 and I’m struggling. I want food, real food and lots of it☹️. My guess is that if someone is overweight b... View Post
  • Day 2 of My KETO Journey

    It looks like I’m making it thru day 2:)  Getting up at 4 was not a problem. As for my workout I had to dial it back big time . I guess that is to be expected after making such a huge nutritional change overnight. I did not feel hungry or sick at all. No headache, nothing besides being light head... View Post
