KETO Eggnog Pancakes

I'm back to low carb, keto to be specific,and developing new recipes to make it easier to stick with. I find I just plain feel great when I eat ketogenic, and I definitely have better progress with weight loss when I eat this way. It can be a challenge to stick with, but with a little creativity, it's a piece of cake...

Low carb pancake that is.

Gnarf, gnarf, pun totally intended. 

Anyways, yes, back to the low carb pancakes. I'm completely obsessed with low carb pancakes lately. Keto Eggnog Pancakes no less. They're pretty darned tasty...

Whether you're seriously bored on your egg fast or just a low carb, LCHF, or keto style eater these Eggnog Low Carb Pancakes are for you! With only 4 grams of carbs for the ENTIRE RECIPE they'll fit nicely into your plan. They're a quick and super easy breakfast option. Plus, yes, they're delicious! And oh so appropriate for this time of year. OK, who am I kidding, I eat them year-round.

This recipe makes 3 or 4 decent siz…

POPSUGAR's October #MustHaveBox Unboxing

POPSUGAR sent me their October Must Have Box to try. As always opinions are honest and my own. This post contains affiliate links. If you purchase something from clicking these links I receive a small commission. It costs you no more.
I must confess that previous to this month I had never tried a subscription box. Never. None. Not once.

I've of course seen them around and even drooled over a couple, but I just never got around to signing up for any. At this moment I am wondering what in the world I was waiting for!

The October Must Have Box has me hooked. I actually squealed and jumped up and down in the kitchen when I opened it and peeked at the description card.

Silly? Maybe. But it's so fun! Sort of like little birthday surprises; I didn't pick them out, but I love them. I totally get subscription boxes now.

OK, what's in this month's box? This:

A little unboxing video I shared on my Instagram:

Paleo Pumpkin Spice Muffins

This Paleo Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipe was sponsored by Puritan's Pride.
It’s that time of year again. All things pumpkin spice season! 
Cooler weather, kids are back in school, and the leaves are changing to beautiful shades of yellow, red, and orange. There is just something about fall that makes me want to bake up a storm. Lately I find myself wanting to bake all the pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin… It’s not only delicious, but it’s also a great source of Vitamin A!

This Paleo Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipe is grain-free and makes a great grab-and-go breakfast option or anytime snack.

Full Review: Jillian Michaels Hot Body, Healthy Mommy

It's no secret that I love Jillian Michaels' workouts. I love the toughness, I love the way her workouts are structured, and I love the results I get from them. When I heard that Jillian has finally come out with a postpartum fitness DVD I could not get my hands on it fast enough!

I was a bit apprehensive at the same time though. How in the world would Jillian's badass style gel with a body after baby type DVD? I'm so used to tough Jillian stuff that I really had no idea what to expect with this. How could this work? Let's just say I was pleasantly surprised.

OK, first what exactly is it...
