Having a Ketofied 4th of July

I remember my first Keto 4th of July - a friend invited us over to her house to enjoy a day of family, fireworks, and food. I was looking forward to some much-needed friends and family time but wasn’t sure how the whole food situation was going to play out. After all, I was only 2 months in and still trying to navigate the traveling-and-eating-out-while-keeping-it-keto thing.

I soon realized the only way I was going to be able to go to the function and stay in my keto lane was by making some food that I could bring and share with everybody else.

What's it Going to Take?

I’ve just wrapped up the launch of my free Get Keto Clear in 5 Days series (it's not too late to join... check it out here!) and from the responses I’ve gotten, I’d say there are quite a few of you ready to make the commitment and jump into the keto life.

I’m waiting with open arms to embrace you in this healthier way of being. But first, let me tell you what it’s going to take…
 

Fat-Fueled Mornings

As a keto coach, I get clients that run the gamut: some of my clients have only just recently learned of the ketogenic diet, others have tried to adopt this way of eating, with little or no success. and many have experienced the awesome rewards of a committed ketogenic lifestyle.

The newbies, and those who've tried keto before on their own with little success, often come to me confused about the best foods to eat, especially in the mornings. We’ve been told breakfast is the most important meal of the day for so long, it almost feels wrong to skip it... even when we aren’t really hungry yet.

Exogenous vs. Endogenous Ketones

There is a new(ish) fad trending in the ketogenic world as of late: exogenous ketones. You may have heard of them or even know somebody trying to sell them to you. 

I suspect I may make some enemies or lose some followers with this post, but I am here to be a truth-teller and spreader of information so if that doesn’t jive with you, then we can part friends - no hard feelings.

Memorial Day the Keto Way

I can’t think of anything better than spending time with family and friends, filling my loved ones with fantastic food and making memories to last a lifetime. Those are all the things I look forward to now that summer is right around the corner.

I’m a lot like Monica from Friends in the fact that I love hosting get-togethers at my house and aim to be the hostess-with-the-mostest.

Coming Into the Light

It’s not an uncommon reaction to try to minimize situations instead of dealing with them head-on. Like, maybe if I’m really quiet, it will all go away.

What ends up happening to me when I do that is I start to feel like everything in my life is unraveling and I’m hanging on by a string.

If you are making some big lifestyle changes, this may sound all too familiar...
