Keto and kids? Here’s our take on it…

It’s been quite a long while since I’ve posted, though God knows how many drafts I have going at this point. We are blessed and grateful to be busier than ever with clients, events and restaurants, plus the whole 9 kids thing. Honestly, we are unpleasantly busy – but not unhappy, if that makes sense.Continue reading “Keto and kids? Here’s our take on it…”

Same Resolutions, New Resolve?

I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted. Partly, because business has been good, for which I am extremely grateful (and busy). Partly because I haven’t had anything funny, motivational, or even remotely positive to write. Somehow, I didn’t think it was great advertising for my health-related food business to say, “hey guys,Continue reading “Same Resolutions, New Resolve?”

Breaking News: ABC Kitchen owner reported MIA, found in the middle of a “cleanse”

Sorry, everybody. I’ve meant to keep you updated on my progress, but have found myself surrounded by chips, dips, and more recently, eggs. I’m super excited to report that I, and three others, have recently completed the second trial of the Chips&Dips “cleanse,” and all of us lost weight! I lost 2.2 lb this time,Continue reading “Breaking News: ABC Kitchen owner reported MIA, found in the middle of a “cleanse””

The Results Are In: Call For Volunteer Dippers!

Last night, to celebrate the end of my chips and dips experiment, I may have gone a little overboard. We had chips and loaded pizza dip for dinner, with a side of buffalo cauliflower bites and a bucket of blue cheese. I can honestly say that I didn’t count how many chips I ate, butContinue reading “The Results Are In: Call For Volunteer Dippers!”

All dips are not created equal

I bet you think I’m going to rave about this awesome green chutney I made last night. I am not. I gained back 0.3 lb over the last 24 hours, and while that’s not enough to slow me down, the chutney definitely wasn’t worth a gain of any kind. I love Indian food – curry,Continue reading “All dips are not created equal”

Frosting is a dip

Instead of cooking, we ended up going out for wings, so I did not make my own blue cheese (which is delicious) or have any chips with dinner. After my lunch of leftover dips and chips, I still had over 20 chips left of my allotment when we got home last night. They couldn’t justContinue reading “Frosting is a dip”

I’m winning right now

No drumroll necessary – I’m down 1.6 lb this morning! I’m happy with a loss of 2 or more pounds each week, so almost being down 1.8 on Wednesday while eating chips and dip is just what I needed during a week of back-to-school-back-home-from-school-because-someone-got-carsick-on-the-bus-but-no-fever-so-maybe-they-can-come-back chaos. But I digress… For last night’s 7-layer taco dip, IContinue reading “I’m winning right now”

Day 2 – No pain, no gain

That is a picture of what we ate last night – as you can see, we are both a chip-loving and mixed-up football family. And not food photographers. While I didn’t eat my 32 remaining chips, I ate enough of them, loaded with crab rangoon, to feel very full. For those of you who askedContinue reading “Day 2 – No pain, no gain”

The Chips and Dips Cleanse “Plan”

I went off my M-F cleanse cycles and back to regular keto last week, meaning I added dairy, sweetener, nuts and alcohol back into my diet while staying under 22 net carbs. And I only lost 0.6 pounds… I really want to know which of those things are crippling my weight loss, and I alsoContinue reading “The Chips and Dips Cleanse “Plan””
