cheesy chicken & cauliflower rice poblano casserole

I’ve been meal-prepping for years now, and I just started following the keto diet a few weeks ago. I know carbs are a trigger food for me and I love sugar, so it just makes sense. I’ve done quite a bit of reading about it, and the research just makes sense to me on a… Continue reading cheesy chicken & cauliflower rice poblano casserole

week in review: getting it together

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. My boss was on vacation this week, so, as she said, I was in charge of the monkeys…as in “Not my circus, not my monkeys.” I worked…I don’t know, 35-ish hours at the day job. Kept up with school stuff. Like… Continue reading week in review: getting it together

positivity gets results…I hope

It’s been a rough couple of weeks–or months–as far as effort I’ve put out for my health.

Besides, I’m usually just cooking for me, so there’s not point in putting out a lot of effort for every meal. I try to meal prep for the week on Sundays. And I’m… Continue reading easy, low-carb sausage balls

3 ingredient pancakes (well, really four)

Yesterday morning, I woke up at 3 to get ready for work…but I was feeling pretty horrible. My head/sinuses were all congested, couldn’t breathe, drainage, you name it. Normally, we don’t have “extra” staff, so I’m accustomed to working even if I don’t feel 100%. Fortunately, this time we did, so I was able to… Continue reading 3 ingredient pancakes (well, really four)

Fourteen weeks in, and I’ve lost 25 pounds! I’m pretty pleased with that. Hopefully, next week, I’ll hit 27.5 pounds, which is the halfway point to my goal. Some weeks, I haven’t lost anything, or I’ve gained a bit back. Some weeks I’ve lost less than half a pound. But all the hard work has… Continue reading 25
