  • Bulletproof Coffee

    If you’ve checked out the keto lifestyle at all, you’ve probably run across the term “Bulletproof Coffee”.
    Honestly, there are a million different recipes out there; I think this is mainly because you can kind of modify it to meet your needs. Check out the recipe I use below!

  • “The Scorch Trials” (Book Two) James Dashner

    Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

    The ending was both spectacular and disappointing. Disappointing because, if this was real life, I would hate to be the characters in this book. Thankfully, I’m only reading the books, so bravo James Dashner! The ending was a finale to a topsy, turvy, roller coaster of a novel.

  • Day Five of Keto: What Your Friends Say

    I know that this lifestyle – which I intend to maintain long after I drop the weight – can lower my bad cholesterol, lower my blood sugar, knock me out of my obesity, up my energy levels, and help stabilize the catastrophic storm inside of my mind. 

  • Keto & Cholesterol

    Not only can a low-carb diet that is high in unsaturated fats help people lose weight, but it can also decrease LDL cholesterol, blood sugar levels, and triglycerides, all the while increasing HDL cholesterol – also known as the good cholesterol. 

  • The Down Low on Net Carbs

    The Down Low on Net Carbs Let me ask you a quick question; how do you calculate your net carbs? My guess is that, right now, you either googled what the hell a net carb is or started reciting some… Read More ›

  • Day Two: Net Carbs & Photos

    It just means I have to do better today, which shouldn’t be hard now that I know I can get through a day without chocolate or soda.

  • ‘Twas the First Day of Keto

    On one hand, I feel excited and ready. On the other hand, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this many carbs in one morning… ever. Isn’t it funny how you never notice something until you can’t eat it?

  • “The Maze Runner” (Book One) By James Dashner

    Overall Rating: ★★★★★

    What would you do if you woke up in a strange place with no memories? You have recollections, but nothing concrete to work with. There’s a Maze that must be solved, but the puzzle is unlike any other. The only instinct you have is to get home.

  • The Daughter of a Lowboy Driver

    Maybe that’s what I’m trying to share with the world, though. Those truck drivers that you are so determined to get in front of, they have families. Instead of being with them every night, they’re out there driving down the road – hauling fuel, food, asphalt, equipment, and other commodities that we need to survive. They have little girls and boys who are home, impatiently awaiting the arrival of their daddy – or mommy. When you cut them off, they can’t stop as fast as you can. If their brakes go out, their truck will destroy your car and – unfortunately, due to the way Americans tend to perceive truck drivers – instead of going home to their families, they’ll be sitting in prison because you drove like a jackass and couldn’t wait five extra minutes to get home to the home you sleep at every night.

  • “The Haunting of Maddy Clare” by Simone St. James

    Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

    As she did in “The Broken Girls”, Simone St. James found a way to end a story – laced with mystery, death, and crime – with a happy ending filled with love and happiness.
