Low Carb Croc Pot Chili

This is one of my favorite meals to make when I need to food prep for the week. This chili is so yummy, and you won't even know its low carb! Seriously, I've made it for my family before and they had no idea. But, now I'm a little more snooty about sharing my chili because I want it all to myself!

Most of the ingredients are things you can find at a normal grocery store, however there is one somewhat "specialty item."  The black soy beans. I actually can find these bean at a local health food store. But you can also find them here. They are totally worth it to me to get because it makes the chili so good, and makes you feel "normal" 😂.

Here is a video recipe for the crock pot chili!

And here is a recipe you can print:

No Bake (Low Carb) cheesecake

One of my favorite go-to recipes for dessert is no bake cheesecake! It's very simple to make, and doesn't take very much time! Also what I love about a no bake cheesecake is that you can food prep them into individual containers! It's perfect for popping in your lunch bag.

Here's my video recipe! If you want to see more of my recipe videos on YouTube, click here.

My go to low carb bread recipe!

Forget about Julian Bakery bread! I wrote about them so many years ago, and they have changed! I have a really hard time finding their bread in my local health food store anyway, and they've changed the recipe so that it doesn't even taste good any more!

So, I scoured the internet and tweaked a few recipes to make my own low carb bread. And let me tell you, its like actual. freaking. bread.

It takes a lot of specialty ingredients, its true. But, if you really need some bread that has the texture like real bread, this is your new bae. Please don't hate me that I just typed out bae.

I found all of my specialty ingredients from Let me get some links for you.

Check out my video on how to make this in your bread machine! Have you ever heard of a low carb bread you could make in your bread machine?! This whole loaf only comes out to be 10 carbs! Just, make sure you find a heavy cream and sweetener with 0 carbs. But, its true, you will need to use actual sugar in this recipe to activate the yeast. only a tsp.

Little blog facelift, and some updates.

Its been many, many years since I have given this blog some attention and love. Sorry, I'm just kind of a lazy bum sometimes. I've tried to make this blog a little more accessible and organized with regards to my recipes. You'll see that there are a few different tabs you can click on to take you to my recipes!

I went through a big transition about four years back, and moved to a new town with my family! I gained a lot of weight back, got into some bad habbits... But now I'm in the middle of losing it all again! It feels good to be a loser 😉. This last January, I was finally motivated to lose the weight with my local gym's weight loss challenge they had. The man and woman who lost the most weight won a cash prize! I knew that I could do it! and guess, what? I won it! I lost 25 lbs in about 3 months. Honestly, not my personal best. But, I've noticed as I've gone around the bend of 30 years old, its getting harder to lose weight.

I did a lot of running, which is my favorite form of exercise believe it or not! I love zoning out, watching a movie (while on the treadmill), or listening to a book, and burning those calories! And of course, eating low carb. Its the only way to go for me!

Here's to another "after picture" in the next 3 months! Why don't you come on my journey with me, and take your own before and after pictures!
