Sweet Potato Tots

When it’s leptin reset day (usually a Saturday), I go all out. That means sweet potato everything, really. I’ve already posted about our sweet potato pancake adventures. Here’s my take on sweet potato tots, based on this muse recipe. I made some changes, adding a shredded cheese blend I had on hand as well as… Continue reading Sweet Potato Tots

My Top 5 Health/Wellness Books

I love reading– mostly been into non-fiction lately though I certainly have read my share of poetry/fiction/more creative works, as I have an MFA in Creative Writing as part of my background. I go through waves where I’ll be interested in all things fantastical for a few years then be completely turned off by the… Continue reading My Top 5 Health/Wellness Books

Daniel’s Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes

I write blog posts in advance, often on the weekends when I have time to both leptin reset as well as develop recipes.

Yes, bone broth is considered acceptable to drink when you’re fasting (so… Continue reading Easy Bone Broth

Salmon with Cajun Bean-Pasta Alfredo

Even though I eat low carb most days, I don’t miss pasta. Why? Because I still get to have it. I recently discovered bean-based pastas from Explore Cuisine. I avoid the soybean ones, as soy has been implicated as being a phytoestrogen in like every health book ever. But are beans low carb? No– they’re… Continue reading Salmon with Cajun Bean-Pasta Alfredo

Low Carb Quick Pickling

Whatever diet you’re on, I think we can all agree that salads are healthy. I think we can also agree that salads, over the course of a few days or weeks, can get boring. That is, unless you change it up a bit and apply some quick pickling of any heartier elements of the salad (e.g.,… Continue reading Low Carb Quick Pickling
