Hey babes! I’m so excited to finally share this low-carb and gluten-free pizza crust recipe with you, it’s SOOO GOOOOD!!!! Just a quick recap: Brian and I started the Keto diet back in June and we were steadfast for a little over a month. I did a triathlon sprint (guys I took THIRD place in my age division. Why I haven’t bragged about that until now I have no idea haha!) while in Michigan visiting family and fell out of ketosis with the carbs I took the night before and right after the race. I tried and tried to get back into it but just didn’t have it in me to follow a strict meal plan. So late one night the chocolate chip cookie cravings came and we just fell off the wagon. We aren’t doing Keto anymore but hopefully when things settle down and I can trust myself to commit, we’ll get back into it – I really loved the diet. It was easy and I didn’t feel like I was really sacraficing anything. We found a lot of super yummy recipes and I was happy and totally satisfied on it. It’s just hard to get into. And if you get out if it you’ve gotta be strict with what you’re eating until you can get back in. I followed the fit2fat2fit meal plan for a week and then figured out my macros so I could switch up what I was eating!!
ANYWAY, with that out of the way this was and still is one of our very favorite low-carb keto crusts. I’ve tried several over the years including cauliflower pizza crusts and this won wins hands down. This recipe is from Wholesome Yum, she’s AMAZING to follow if you’re gluten-free or low-carb. We loved all her recipes, especially the cheesecake!

WHITE BEAN CHICKEN CHILI — SUMMER EDITION! Okay loves, I’m back at it with the instant pot and still working on my goal of finding quick, easy, and healthy recipes. Today I’ve got a super yummy one for you from Eat.Drink.Love! This is one of those meals that takes you five minutes to get everything put in the instant pot and voila! in under one hour your dinner is ready!

Now I know what you might be thinking “chili… isn’t that a winter dish?” but today we’re breaking rules and eating chili in the offseason because we can! Also because this chili is totally fit for the summer because of its broth-base. It is light and fresh and doesn’t leave you feeling overwhelmingly full but rather sufficiently satisfied, perfect for the summer months. This chili is truly the best and easiest summer recipe that everyone in your fam will love, including the kids!

Pulled Pork Tacos with Mango Salsa and Cilantro Lime Rice

May 10, 2018

PULLED PORK TACOS!! I love this meal so much. It’s one of those dinners that doesn’t take too much effort but it tastes like you’ve been slaving away in the kitchen all day! It took 35 minutes from start to finish and while the meat was cooking in the instant pot, I was prepping the salsa and rice. I’ve had my instant pot for over a year and have just recently started using it. My goal is to find realistic dinners for my family that are not only quick and easy, but healthy. If it’s okay with you, I’m gonna start sharing our very favorites with you! I came upon this Pulled Pork Tacos recipe from The Organic Kitchen awhile ago and I gotta tell ya — we are in love!
