Miracle Noodles

20180301_153132.png

 

Today is the first day of March and that’s fantastic! I have always loved March and the weather changes that will be coming soon! Even though it’s raining really hard today I know that it is supposed to clear up and be another beautiful day full of sun! The best thing about today is my miracle noodles should be coming in. If you haven’t heard about these so-called miracle noodles I’ll leave a picture below. After I have them tonight you all know I’ll let you know if they are any good.

 

Just got back from the gym and the chest workout was fantastic! I felt a lot better doing my fasted lifting today than I felt yesterday and I think it had to do with sleep. I slept amazing last night and because of that, I think my body responded very well to lifting on an empty stomach! I’ll definitely see if it helped when I weigh in on Monday. Today was my 3rd lift of the week so all I need is 1 more and I’m at my goal for the week. I do need to pick it up on the cardio end of things because I have only done 1 cardio day so far. We are going swimming tonight so that’s 2 and then I’ll try to double up tomorrow to get right again. I would just do cardio when I lift but the cardio machines are absolutely covered when I lift during the day. There is a huge population of senior citizens at my gym and they work out a ton during the day. Don’t get me wrong I think that’s fabulous and I pray that I am able to live as long and be as active as some of these folks. Since the cardio machines are mostly taken I just swim at night or come back and do the elliptical. I’m giving myself 2 more weeks with my current routine and then I’ll be going up in weight and adding a few more exercises in. That will be cool!

As I mentioned before I will be making those miracle noodles I ordered from Amazon tonight. While I type this I have them marinating in a delicious sauce so that I can add 2 pieces of chopped up chicken thighs, some sesame seeds and probably some spinach. I’m not too sure yet because I may make a green smoothie in case my noodles taste gross.lol. My fast was broken today with a giant cup of keto meal and coffee a few pieces of turkey bacon and a piece of chicken from the other night. Not only was it delicious but I can honestly say that it certainly filled me up! I’m still trying to figure out if I want to fast 18 hours every day or do 16:8 but as of now, I’m able to fast for 18 hours pretty easily. Just a little tip, If you are eating Keto you will get tired of the same 2 or 3 meals every now and again so it’s very important to keep playing around with different meals that will add variety to your diet. I know from experience that boredom leads to binging because you slip and have just one bad thing and it’s like a chain reaction and before you know it you’ve gained like 5 pounds.lol. Now if you don’t have an addiction to food like myself than nevermind but for me, I know that if I don’t mix it up there will be a problem.lol.

 

I pray that today was good for you and tonight even better! Thank you so very much for reading and I appreciate you all as usual. By the way, I will have updates on the plants I’m growing next week I promise! See Ya!

I Wasn’t Ready!!!

Screenshot_20180206-92437.jpg

Man, I was not ready! First off, happy Tuesday morning yall and I hope today becomes one of the best days you have ever had. As for me, I am feeling sore as hell from my workout yesterday but I learned so much about my life and where I am on this journey. So relax, kick back and let me give you all the 411 on what happened yesterday!

 

Like I said ya boi just wasn’t ready last night! My first workout at the gym was really great, I did chest and triceps and I also added a few more reps to my overall routine. The whole thing took about 30 to 35 minutes. The gym parking lot was very empty when I pulled in so I thought to myself that this might be the time I should come in all the time. It was so funny because even though the gym wasn’t as busy as normal, the only places that were busy happened to be, you guessed it, all the things I was working on. There was like this mini huddle of like 5 men who seem to all be doing chest day and we just looked crazy waiting for each other to get from one machine to the next. Now I have my music playing but I could feel that everyone felt like me, wtf! ” All this damn equipment and we all standing right around each other waiting damn near in line. Again I’m trying out new times to workout so I just took a mental note that I’m the odd man who doesn’t belong to the normal rotation.lol. Oh well, I’ll just keep changing it up till I find my lane!

Back to why I wasn’t ready! So you know how things look so simple and easy when you write them on paper? Well in my little fitness journal( don’t laugh at me!lol.) I wrote that I would do 3 nights of swimming along with my now customary 4 strength training workouts. I figured since I’m no longer going to the gym in the wee hours of the morning anymore I would split up my cardio and do it at a separate time. For a big guy, the water has always seemed like a rational choice. It’s easy on your joints and knees and it is a complete body workout depending on what you’re doing.My plan was simple, I was just going to play around in the pool and get used to it, you know let the buoyancy carry a brother to a nice relaxing place. Well, sometimes things just don’t work out as planned because I made the mistake of watching a few youtube videos on water workouts! Hmmm, they looked simple enough, using the water resistance and getting the heart rate up was exactly what I needed. The problem was it had been 10 years since I had even gotten into a pool so of course, I went into full metal gear solid mode. I was wonderful! Y’all would’ve been so proud, I was doing all kinds of legwork and swimming to and fro. I got in some laps of breaststroke and did some backstroke too. I felt like I was the obese version of Michael Phelps! I could have won the recreational gold medal award for Etown fitness I was feeling great! What I wasn’t ready for was getting out! As soon as I got to carry my own weight out of the pool my body betrayed me.lol. I felt like I had another man my size on my back carrying him to the locker room. I carried his big ass to the sauna and he hung around till I got home! My legs were absolutely screaming at me yall!! I promise you all that I stretched before and after the workout and it really didn’t matter, my ass was whipped! We won’t even get into how the whole family had to help a brother out of bed this morning! Let’s just say it was a damn comedy skit and leave it at that!

 

We did great on the diet front yesterday! I broke my fast with the most amazing green smoothie ever! I loaded that puppy up, it had a whole avocado, chia seeds, roman lettuce, MCT oil, peanut butter and cinnamon and I threw in a little stevia and topped it with sugar-free whip cream! It was so bomb! As you could guess it was a meal in itself with over 500 calories but I loved every single green slurp!lol. Because my smoothie was so gigantic I only had one other meal yesterday and it was a bowl of Crackslaw! I had some low carb pudding for dessert as well so I was very satisfied and my macros were great!

I can’t front, yesterday was hard. I mean I put my body to the test and I got my ass kicked! The cool thing is I love it! I can honestly say that I pushed myself and I was completely uncomfortable and that’s what I needed. I’m comfortable being uncomfortable now if that makes any sense. In my heart, I want to know that I have truly done everything I could to be healthier than I am. I do want to make something clear, my life is fantastic! I don’t know why it bothers me, but it really does, when people say that they were miserable until they lost weight. I don’t wish anyone to feel miserable but if your miserable overweight, I just feel like once you lose weight you’re just miserable in shape! How I feel about myself personally is very important and for me, it’s a choice. Not everyone gets the chance to choose to be happy, they may have a debilitating disease or come from a situation that caused damage that can’t be ignored. That, however, is not the case with me, I just want to be a better version of me in this particular area of my life, that’s it!

Have a wonderful day everyone, I’m pulling for you!

Grace

Happy Saturday everyone I hope this post finds everyone in good health and spirits! Ya boi got to sleep in today and wake up fresh and rested! The snow is melting as the warmer temperatures are taking over so it seems like things are getting back to normal!

 

I hit the gym Thursday and worked chest and triceps along with my customary 30-minute cardio session! The routine is starting to come together nicely. I still need to start a leg routine so that I can hurt like everyone else I see walking around like they are about to fall over.lol. The gym has been super busy for the last couple of times I have gone so I am still working on which times are the best for me. My goal is 4 times a week but in order to get to the gym that much I need to workout a couple of times during the day, so I’m still trying to figure it out! My music playlist has been on fire and the workouts are really getting to be fun because the music just transforms me into another world while I’m working out!

My diet has been going bananas lately! I’ve been trying all kinds of keto recipes to add to the routine and they are not all winners but boy is it fun to see what my mind wants to do! I came up with my version of keto pigs n a blanket and it was a total failure. Don’t get me wrong they tasted amazing but I had a little issue with my dough and I didn’t let it cool on parchment paper so I was scrapping dough off of stuff and it just wasn’t so hot.lol, It was a lot of fun but I ended up making this big ass pig pocket thing that has no kinda resemblance to a damn blanket but the family ate it all up so at least it wasn’t in vain. My two meals have been staying keto and since I’m no longer counting calories I find it so much easier to just make what I love to eat and listen to my body! On the intermittent fasting front, I have been doing great! I been breaking my fast at about 2 p.m every day or so and rotating my fasting windows up and down and it’s really starting to be fun. The biggest challenge for me lately is water intake. For some strange reason, I have not been very thirsty lately and that’s just not like me! Oh well, I’ll figure it out I guess!

 

If you have nothing to feel thankful for then please think about how many people have to be dealing with all this extreme weather while being homeless! I just can’t imagine how people have the strength to deal with all of life’s challenges and on top of it all not have an idea where their next meal or their roof will be from day to day. I pray to the lord above that I am blessed to have all that I have and the amazing people he has placed in my life! I truly appreciate each and every person that has crossed my path! My blessing is truly overflowing and I am humbled by his grace! Have a magnificent day everyone!

Downeaster ‘Alexa’

 

Good morning to all of you and welcome to another glorious Thursday! We are the blessed and lucky few who actually get to see another day on this beautiful earth and I pray you all find something to smile about today!

 

IMG_0005.JPG

 

If felt so great to get back to the gym yesterday! Honestly, I planned to start my workouts for the week today but I got restless with all this chilling at home and I had to get my ass up and hit the workout hard! I may have found a good time to go to my gym in the daytime and if that’s true then Your boi will definitely start going in the bright lights of daytime. My heart will always want to be in the gym alone but hey until I get my home gym together I better learn how to share the damn gym with others right? lol. The workout started with 30 minutes of cardio at a great pace while I listened to the legendary Billy Joel wail about his Downeaster Alexa and Pearl Jam take me back to my teenage years with “Jeremy” and “Black!” I was channeling my inner white kid for the cardio session and it was fantastic! Grunge music is made for cardio, if you don’t know you better ask somebody and is there ever a time that Billy Joel isn’t appropriate? Anyway, for strength training, I did interval back and biceps until I couldn’t take it anymore! The workout was only about 58 minutes but it felt great!  You all have my word I will start trying to add pictures of my strength training at some point!

 

 

So after having my traditional chicken salad and some bulletproof coffee I started to make the keto brownies I mentioned yesterday. The truth is these brownies are not bad but not great and I’ve said it so many times that you really have to keep searching to find sugar free baked goods that taste great! On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give them a 7 so they aren’t horrible at all. They are very moist and chocolatey but I just have a hard time dealing with coconut flour. If you are o.k with coconut flour I definitely recommend this if you’re trying to keep it keto! brownie recipe. It’s a youtube video from keto Connect and they make it really simple to follow! Let me know if you try them, maybe your a better cook then me and they turn out amazing for you. Please don’t get the wrong idea these are good they just aren’t great and for me, if they aren’t great I will probably only make them every now and then. I only made half a batch……

 

 

 

Before I bounce I just want to say the lettuce is trying to grow for your boi! Enjoy your Thursday homies!

Making Progress

 

5.jpg

It’s hump day yall and it’s great to be back blogging after a few days off! I have just been chilling and trying to deal with this cold weather system we have had blow thru the southeast the last week or so. Kids are still not in school because of the snow accumulation and freezing rain here in Kentucky but it looks like a safe bet they will have school tomorrow! Let’s hope! I can’t front, I’m loving the snow and all it brings minus the accidents and all. I love a good winter wonderland!

I haven’t been to the gym this week but I have been getting plenty of sleep this week and I feel amazing! I typically don’t have a problem sleeping but I know I don’t get anywhere near the recommended amount of minimal sleep per night! It’s been like 8 or 9 hours a night and I’ll admit it really does help; definitely feeling refreshed. As you know the other day I was running from pizza, but today I can honestly say that I have been eating pretty good and I have intermittently fasted every day for the last 10 days in a row so I’m getting a fine handle on that front! The kitchen was bare yesterday and we had zero produce but I went and grabbed some at Krogers last night and stocked up so I’m good to go this morning! I’m thinking of making a batch of keto brownies today that I’m really excited about because I have never made any that weren’t made the old fashion way with lots of sugar and chocolate! If it turns out good or bad you all know that I will post it on my next blog! While I won’t be I.F. today I will be keeping it keto as normal with a monster salad and some B.P.C! Then I’ll focus on the deserts of brownies and maybe some keto shortcake for my second meal, I’ll figure it out.lol

 

This past week I have had some mental battles with myself about fat loss. It seems like there are days when it doesn’t feel like I’m losing fast enough! My mind knows it’s all a process but the spoiled man in me wants all the results now, you know the perfect body overnight.ha ha ha. The same mind that pushes me to get up when I fall and to stay positive is the same mind that manufactures my doubts. It’s funny how that works but I know it happens to all of us. Sometimes you have to battle with your own team(mind) ain’t that a bitch! Usually, when this happens I watch a movie or I check to see how far I have come, anything to get my head right! This process isn’t always easy but it’s definitely apart of the journey and all I can say is we just have days we have to fight and fight no matter what!

Great news homies since November 11th till now I have lost another 3 inches on my waist! I feel really great about this because I have so much to lose and it helps to see progress, especially since I don’t have my scale in from Amazon yet. O.k I know we shouldn’t be obsessed with weight but I have to at least know that I’m making progress on days I feel like I’m not, so I had to order one.lol. Did I mention I’m excited about the measurements? I lost size in my chest and other areas as well but my waist is my biggest area of concern for now so I’m super focused on my midsection! I just measured in the middle of making this post because I’m supposed to do it monthly and it totally slipped my mind. With this new planner, it’s hard not to write everything down because it’s staring at me every day, all day.lol

Enjoy your hump day and be safe on those crazy streets!

Let’s Stay Together!!

 

Screenshot_20180115-092916.jpg

 

Happy Martin Luther King day to each and every one of you, I hope today finds you with a smile on your face and a full heart! It’s Monday and it’s pretty cool that it is a day, in the States at least, when we honor a great American as well as the great struggle that was fought with his leadership! This post will not be about him, but as a black man in America, I am honored when anyone is honored for trying to do some good for the people around them!

 

Yesterday was a great day. I wasn’t able to go to the gym yet because of weather conditions but I did get my 10k steps in and I’m happy with that. Remember, sometimes it’s just important that we do something to keep consistent! I am really missing the weights but I think I’ll do a little strength training at home today because it looks like we have a little snow coming today and then we should be in the clear. I live right behind our gym so I’m not missing because I can’t get there but rather they have been closed for operations for several days. The resistance bands I got off of Amazon are really great because they truly take away any excuse I could have for not getting some sort of basic workout in.

 

On the eating front, everything is moving right along! Since I was out of lettuce I simply had a green smoothie and bpc for lunch and for dinner I had some delicious chicken wings! I love chicken as you know but wings are just simple and easy to throw together and bake or fry. Most of the time I don’t even have any sauce on them I can just season to taste and I’m completely satisfied! I was brought some sweet treats that I hardly ever eat and as much as I would like to say I held strong I didn’t. I totally gave in and had a small piece of cake but I simply did a little more cardio to make up for the calories and I didn’t feel guilty or bloated or anything. This lifestyle will require me to be more discipline but every now and again I will be having a guilty pleasure! My body feels great and I can tell that my relationship with food is still headed in the right direction!

 

20171003_091740.jpg

 

Lastly, I would like to talk about something that has been in the news a bit lately.  Recently, I read where a clothing chain put a shirt on a young black kid that referred to him being a monkey and the internet went crazy! It was an advertisement for some sweatshirts or something like that and people started saying that it was a racist ad aimed at calling black people monkeys. As a black man, I would invite all of you to remember that we are more together than divided. The media and others would have you believe that everything has a underlying meaning and that we are not supposed to be together because we are different. Please don’t let this non-sense distract you from the fact that there are too many people out here in this world doing good and getting along of all nationality to be suckered back into some race problem. I’m not suggesting that there aren’t any racial problem in this world. I’m simply saying time and time again we have proven that the overwhelming majority of us love and care about each other no matter what color or creed. We as people have shown that compassion and love transcend all barriers! Please don’t let people get you to believe we are divided and totally different because the truth is we are united. Today in this world there are more people from diverse backgrounds interacting and caring for one another than ever before. We all know how to love and we all need love, so don’t believe them when they try to make you think we are other than what we are! Don’t take the bait! The world has much bigger issues in my opinion! O.k., the soapbox has been exited!

Have a fantastic Monday and remember no matter what, you are worth anything and everything it takes to be happy! See Ya!

Resolution Check

Good morning on this feezing Friday! Everyone wherever you are please be safe and take it slow if you’re traveling through a lot of bad weather like we are having here in Kentucky! We are expected to get some pretty icky weather here, from freezing rain to snow and beyond.lol. Just because the weather stinks it doesn’t mean I can slack off and so here we go…

 

Because I knew about the weather I got up super duper early and killed a quick workout! That’s 4 of the 6 I need this week to be good again so it’s looking great so far! This morning after the cardio, which is going great at the 30-minute amount I worked chest and triceps with interval training. The gym was unusually active for so early in the morning I guess we all had the same idea about getting it done early.lol. My body honestly feels like I could broad jump the moon today, I am just so full of energy! I think I’m going to need it with all this weather nonsense today!

 

20180109_011349.jpg

 

On the plate yesterday I had more honey garlic chicken with a monster salad and sunflower seeds. My second meal was a smoothie and a small helping of ground sausage with coconut oil and butter. No bulletproof coffee at all yesterday and I’m not really sure why because I tend to have it every day. I gotta tell you guys not counting calories has really helped me relax and focus better on what’s important for me. The fast yesterday was only about 16 hours and it felt just as easy as the other fasts. I’m finally to the point that I can eat when I want to and I know I have a goal for the day as to how long to fast. The only time I plan to count calories is if I have a cheat day so that I don’t go too crazy and stay relatively close 2k calories. I’m thinking of having a cheat day today but honestly, I really don’t feel like I’m craving anything out of the ordinary.

 

20180109_195102.jpg

 

I’ve been reading about everyone’s goals for the new year and I think it’s great! We are coming into the meat of the month of January and this is the time that people slowly lose grip on all those big goals and dreams they wrote down! Please recognize that those goals are important to you and that you can do it and it may start to get easy to miss a workout here and there and get complacent but hold fast. Remember why you made that list in the first place and if you truly want those things, double down on your efforts in the coming weeks. Most polls show that 78% of people stop working on their new years’ resolutions in the 2nd or 3rd week of January. The great news is those people who continue thru the month of January have an 80% percent chance of staying with it! So that tells me that if we can just get thru these tough couple weeks we will get into a rhythm of goal chasing that will continue on all year! I believe in all of you and I know that greatness is embedded deep inside all of us, we can do this! Have a fantastic weekend and have a fun time reaching your goals!

Black Thumb!

 

Screenshot_20180103-140324.jpg

I was super late blogging today because I was too busy running errands.lol. I have decided that I am going to start growing my own green leafy veggies in the house! I’m really very excited about this because I wasn’t aware that it was possible to do so. While researching on youtube the other day I stumbled on this method of growing plants in little styrofoam cups and I was in disbelief! I’m thinking since I eat tons of greens if this method works out then I’m going to get a little setup and a grow light and start growing my food. Now I know you all are thinking that he might start growing that sticky green stuff but I assure you all while I’m not against it I don’t use it because I have kids in the house and I don’t want them to be influenced by my decision. I’ll say this once they move out I’m snoop dogging it up in here though.lol. So today I got my soil and seeds and cups and I planted my first little garden!

Yesterday……. all my troubles seem so far away. These lyrics by Lennon are so very profound because honestly I was doing great until last night and then I decided to eat a whole bunch of stupid stuff. The problem was that I was super thirsty and I think I mistook that for hunger and started eating all kind of candy and I even had fudge! I never have fudge. Haha. It was really dumb because I fasted and I had a great workout and everything and then I beeped it up binging. It happens I know but I just think it’s silly when I don’t get enough sleep and I don’t drink enough water. I’m too damn grown for all of that. I’ve forgiven myself, not because there’s anything wrong with eating like that every once in awhile but for messing up my routine. I’m such a creature of habit and I just can’t handle the same amount of leeway other people can without having a major collapse. It’s just how I work. So today I am fasting for over 24 hours to reset myself and then I’ll hit the gym and that will help me feel better about my progress. I just can’t afford any dumb eating decisions right now, I have huge goals for my weight loss this year!

 

Screenshot_20180103-140102.jpg

 

I notice that by going to the gym I have a ton more energy to do other stuff. The extra energy is great I just have to be careful because if I do too much than the family will expect me to participate in way more stuff.lol. I’m kidding but seriously it feels great to not be as limited by low energy. Even as I write this post my energy level is sky high. It may be because I’m so excited about my little garden experiment. Can you guys imagine this huge overweight black man dancing around his garden with a water spray bottle?! My gosh, I have issues! The most thrilling thing in the world for me is to learn new things and I’m like a 5 year old at his own birthday party about to open gifts! Of course, I’ll let you all know how the gardening goes and if any of you have any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

 

I salute you for taking time out to read this and I wish you a fantastic and joyful day!

Let’s Get It!!

 

IMG_20171213_060109_218.jpg

 

Good morning to all of you and happy Tuesday! I am hoping that everyone had a safe and fun new year and that you all are settling into this glorious new beginning. This morning has started off fantastic, I just knocked out my first workout of the year and I must say it was fantastic! I love college football and as the games were playing I must have dozed off at halftime because I woke up at like midnight and my body was really wanting to get this first workout of the year in the books! My workout consisted of chest and triceps and even though I felt I pushed it, I was kinda on exploration mode this morning at the gym. I’m still fairly new to the layout and I found myself wandering around trying to see were this and that goes.lol The elliptical and I are back on great terms and we worked together for about 20 minutes of nice paced cardio. As you all know I absolutely love that machine and I actually look forward to cardio because of it!

 

20180102_011942.jpg

 

Yesterday I had one of my signature obese salads with Romain, Green Onion, and Arugula and it was delicious, although I ran out of the homemade dressing so I’m hoping I still have the ingredients to bust out a few more batches later today! Of course, I followed the salad with my simple baked chicken and a tall glass of water. To be honest, I really only have maybe 4 or 5 things that I make over and over again, I’m pretty basic and simple with my Keto meals. The kids are back home from their dad’s and I’m so glad to see them; however. they were loaded down with all types of cookies and candy from the holidays with the other half of the family. I was like noooo! I felt like Kevin in that movie Home Alone.lol. Everything they brought home looked amazing and of course, loaded with sugar and I did all I could to look away. Ugh! It feels amazing to have their energy and enthusiasm back in the house, they just make the atmosphere seem better! O.k I have to mention that I fasted 20 hours yesterday and only had one meal, which is something I really try not to do because I don’t want to be malnourished or anything. I don’t know how it works for all of you but if I have too many days that I’m under a certain caloric intake I end up binging and we can’t have that!

 

I just wanted to share something with you guys that’s completely and totally off topic for me but Have you all seen Dave Chappelle’s new stand up comedy show’s on Netflix? There are two of them and they are absolutely hilarious. His comedy is certainly not for everyone, but to me, he has an amazing mixture of interesting topics and the punchlines are always on point! You should definitely check them out if you need a quick laugh this week. I wish you all the very best day possible and don’t forget that you are worth all the effort it takes to be the very best you can be! If you need any support or any advise that I can help with please don’t hesitate to check out my facebook page! Alexx’s Keto Avenue.

King Meat

Well, there is good news and better news. The good news is I listened to my body and how sore my biceps felt and decided not to lift last night. The better news is I still managed to get my 10k steps in, so at the very least I have done something to burn calories and feel better! I’m telling you my arms were just not trying to do the simplest of task yesterday so I had to shut it down. It’s easy to forget I just got into the damn gym and I need to give my body time to adjust. The problem sometimes with a gym fee is you feel like if your paying for it you need to get the most out of it and you can sometimes overdo it. This morning my arms feel grateful that I let them rest and I’ll be at full strength to get my 4th workout in on Sunday, which I believe is New Year’s Eve! Happy New year everyone!

Interesting how things are rolling right along on the eating front! Yesterday I had a fantastic mix of Chinese cabbage and Romain lettuce accompanied by my homemade low sugar french dressing! I can’t really say it’s my recipe because I looked it up on youtube but I can say that homemade salad dressing is super easy and absolutely better than the store-bought version! Anyway, I chopped up a few delicious green onions in my salad bowl with my cup of delicious pork rinds and added some chicken to it! Let me just say not only was it delicious but it kept a big man like me full for awhile. So full in fact, that I was able to not eat any meat at all for my second meal of the day and that’s huge for me because as you know meat is King in my kitchen. The second meal was simply Bulletproof coffee, sunflower seeds and some sugar-free pudding that totally satisfied my taste buds. The best thing is my carbs were below 50g so that’s the win-win for me!

My fiance’ and I have been kicking around the idea of creating a cookbook of our favorite recipes, low carb of course.lol.I love the idea of us doing something together that would help others as well as allow me to stay on track with my healthy lifestyle. The more I think about it the more I’m wondering if I need to make different versions of the same recipe to fit multiple lifestyles. I would love some feedback from you guys if you have any ideas that may help. I don’t think we are interested in selling the recipes but just putting some together as a resource we could use as we go along. Please let me know if you have any thoughts on the matter because I am by no means a cooking expert and certainly not the most knowledgeable in terms of fresh ingredients but I’m very willing to learn.

I’ll wrap up by saying that I have found great strength and inspiration from my blogging community and I am so very thankful. I have been working on a Facebook community for followers of a low carb/Keto diet Alexx’s Keto Avenue and if you’re interested please feel free to join! Have a fantastic day and thank you so very much for reading!
