Easy No-Bake Paleo Chocolate Protein Balls - Clean and Gluten-Free

People have asked me a lot about my kids. Are my kids keto too?

Nope. At this point, they are not. I think keto is fine for kids, we just haven't gone there. Or see the need to at this point.

They are however still Paleo. As we all are, my husband and I just do so with keto macros. Paleo was a game-changer for us all and is definitely staying in this here household.



The next question I always get is some version of what do they eat? What do you do about snacks?? How do you keep them happy without fruit snacks, granola bars, soda, and cookies??

Well, thankfully there are paleo-friendly ready-made snacks flooding the market (though READ your labels parents, just because it says paleo does not mean it is). Our cupboard is just as full of swaps like Larabars, Zevia, and Autumn's Gold Cinnamon Almond as any paleo parent. 

Mostly, I make their snacks though. I just like to. We're a busy homeschooling family though, so I keep it quick and simple when it comes to our paleo kids snacks!


What is 75 Hard #75Hard: Documenting My Experience With The 75 Hard Challenge

January 1, I embarked on an interesting journey; I decided to start the 75 Hard Challenge (scroll to the bottom of the post for my updated journal on my progress. I've gotten a lot of questions on this program and what it is exactly, what the rules are, etc. So...


What is 75 Hard? It's a mental toughness skills development challenge started by Andy Frisella. (Since first posting this, it is now a book as well.) His premise is that mental toughness is a skill and therefore can be learned, practiced, and honed. Andy designed this challenge to cultivate: confidence, self-belief, self-esteem, self-worth, endurance, fortitude, grit, perseverance, self-discipline, endurance, resilience... and all of the skills inside the scope of mental toughness.  Check out the podcast that started it all for all the info from Andy himself: https://andyfrisella.com/blogs/mfceo-project-podcast/75hard-a-75-day-tactical-guide-to-winning-the-war-with-yourself-with-andy-frisella-mfceo291 Note that if f-bo…

The Top 20 Keto Diet Products on Amazon

With the popularity of the Keto Diet many companies are using it as a marketing ploy. Unfortunately, just because it says “keto” on the label doesn’t mean it is. There is so much junk out there that I would NOT recommend to a friend. So, for the past 6 months I've been weeding through all the new keto products and long loved keto staples on the market and weeding out the hyped up junk. What I've come up with is a top 20 list on Amazon. This list shares only the best of the ketogenic best you can find to support your Keto Diet lifestyle on Amazon! 

For my criteria in choosing products, they had to: Have clean ingredients.Be low enough in carbs to sensibly include them in a daily keto diet.Stand up to my quality standards for something I would (and for most of these do) regularly purchase.Taste good! (except, obviously in the case of the ketone meter, etc)Without further yammering, my picks for The Top 20 Keto Diet Products on Amazon:

Cinnamon Vanilla KETO Coffee Creamer Recipe

There are tons of keto coffee creamer products flooding the market right now. Some are fantastic options. Some chock full of nasty ingredients. But most of them are on the pricey side.

I have all of my favorite keto diet supplements and must-have keto staples on mine. If you're not familiar with Amazon's Subscribe and Save program, basically you can add certain products on Amazon to an auto scheduled delivery. Monthly, every other month, all the way to shipping every 6 months. It's so handy. You can add, subtract, post-pone, change delivery dates etc too, so you're not locked in forever or anything.

I have all sorts of staples on mine, but today I want to share the best keto diet products to add to your Amazon Subscribe and Save order.

Should You Do Carb-Ups on the Keto Diet?

I realize doing carb-ups on the keto diet is becoming quite the controversy in the keto community and just wanted to throw my 2 cents in. I've been keto off and on since I was 25 (that's *cough* 17 years *cough*) and most recently steadily in ketosis for almost 2 years now. I've experimented with all kinds of versions of keto and have researched it into the ground. So, should you carb up on your ketogenic diet? Grab a keto mocha and let's chat about it.




OK, first Robert Sikes of Keto Savage has a really great podcast on what's going on lately if you're interested. He pretty much thinks exactly as I do on the subject. Check that out here

What is a carb up? Most people in the keto community are familiar, but for those who aren't, a carb-up is basically just taking in more carbs than you usually would on the keto diet in a short period of time. It's similar to carb loading. It can be done timed around exercise, as a heavier carb meal, or even before bedtim…

Easy KETO Vanilla Latte

Yes, I do believe the world does in fact need yet another keto coffee recipe. I mean, really, how can you have too many? But this one, OH, this one...

I feel like the word obsessed is so overused these days that it means virtually nothing anymore. So, I won't say I'm obsessed with this recipe, I'll just say I had 6 yesterday. Oops.




This Easy Keto Vanilla Latte has been my go-to every morning lately. On repeat. It's just so quick and easy and I'm out the door. Plus, it's dang tasty.
Keto Vanilla Latte Ingredients1 mug of your favorite coffee or espresso 1 scoop Vanilla Keto Fit 1 Tablespoon Unflavored Left Coast Performance Keto Creamer (completely optional, adds 120 calories, but great to up your fats if you're looking to do that)

KETO Cocktails: The Lemon Drop

I love a good glass of red wine now and then, I mean it's practically a health food, right? ;) But sometimes I just want a cocktail. I'm all for moderation and having a drink now and then, but I'm just not down with the calorie, carb, and sugar counts of some of my favorites. Seriously, have you ever looked them up? Eek. So, I've set to work at converting my favorite cocktail recipes to be more keto diet friendly!

The first cocktail recipe I'm tackling is the keto lemon drop. I used to love these, but haven't had one in years because of the sugar in them. In my early twenties I had a friend who used to make them for me all the time. We would have a shaker full of these, a good dinner, and a chick flick on a weeknight, it was kind of bliss. Her recipe called for so. much. SUGAR though! Looking back I think she may have used a wee bit more sugar than most, but they were really good.





I think my keto-ized recipe comes pretty dang close to those delicious memories! It…

Keto Paleo Friendly Coffee Creamer Recipe

Going keto paleo has me missing one thing: the organic grass-fed half-and-half I'd been having in my coffee. Since going paleo over a year ago I've searched and searched and just never found anything else I love in my coffee. I'd just about given up on a keto paleo-friendly coffee creamer!

I was almost to resign myself to black coffee forever, but then I decided to resort again to trying to make my own. This version is simple and quite delicious. Not only is it keto paleo, but Whole30 and 21 Day Sugar Detox friendly as well.

Paleo Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer Recipe

It's just not the holidays for me without a Starbucks peppermint mocha (or white chocolate peppermint mocha, mmm). I generally splurge once or twice during the holiday season with the real thing. Since going keto paleo, however, I'm not sure if I will. Sometimes the sugar just isn't worth it!


Problem is I like them, miss them, and would really enjoy them all season long!
So..... I decided I wanted to tackle the peppermint mocha and come up with Paleo-friendly version. With this simple recipe, I can have a peppermint mocha anytime.

KETO Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese Pancakes

I have gone back and forth with low carb since I was 24. I feel better when eating keto and I definitely have good progress with weight loss when I eat that way, but it can be a challenge to stick with.

I'm completely committed to keto now and that has me finding new ways to stick with it!

Ways such as keto pancakes. Say what-what? Yes. Low carb pumpkin pancakes no less. And? They're pretty darned yummy...

A Month of Whole30 Dinner Recipes Your Whole Family Will Love!

If you're doing a Whole30 chances are your whole family isn't doing it with you. In the past I've found that this can be a bit overwhelming when it comes to food prep. Making every meal completely separate is just a lot to do. One solution I have found is to make family-friendly Whole30 dinner recipes. That way, at least for one meal, I was just making one meal that everyone would eat. 

I thought I'd share some of the great Whole 30 dinner recipes I've found from my favorite bloggers (and my own recipes are in there too!). 30 Whole30 dinner recipes to be exact! This list should help you cruise through an entire month of Whole30 with great family friendly dinners.

Paleo Smoky Grilled Pineapple Burgers

Since going Paleo my family has fallen even more in love with our grill. Paleo and grilling just work well together. The past couple of years I've even been stepping outside my grilling comfort zone more and more. Grilling things I'd never thought to have grilled before and trying new flavor combinations. I have to say I'm pretty thrilled with the results of most of my flavor experiments. 

In the past I'd never have thought to grill fruit, but it's amazing. Grilling fruit and adding it to traditionally savory dishes? Brilliant.



Oh yes, and? New rule: every burger recipe for the rest of forever must contain grilled pineapple. OK, maybe more of a guideline. It's a seriously delicious combination though.

This Smoky Grilled Pineapple Burger is always a crowd-pleaser at my house. It's not only Paleo, but Whole30, glutenfree, lower carb, and clean eating friendly. I promise you won't miss the bun!
