Ringing in the New Year with praise for LCHF Keto

March 4, 2021 By Shannon Hayes Off

People ask about our diet all the time (especially since Doug’s weight loss has been so dramatic, that it is quite obvious to everyone). I don’t like to sound like we’re in some sort of ‘food cult’, and I especially no longer like to talk…

March Mashed Meat Marathon

February 17, 2021 By Shannon Hayes Off

Last month we did this for the first time… mixing together 12 pounds of different types of burgers and freezing them.  I had a couple people ask me on Twitter for more detail, so this month I’m writing up the burgers we’re making like I…

Have the flu, Keto style

January 16, 2021 By Shannon Hayes Off

I’d made it a week and thought I’d gotten lucky and skipped the Keto Flu.  Instead, I got hit later than most. Keto ‘Flu’ or Atkin’s Diet Induction Flu are a series of symptoms that result from your body finally realizing that you’ve eradicated the…

Day Six: Meat and yoga

January 5, 2021 By Shannon Hayes Off

My back is still causing me some problems, and I am being very careful to let it heal fully before doing anything strenuous. I did however add some very low-impact, simple exercise to Keto for the first time. I’m doing a beginner yoga video to…

Thanksgiving and Progress

December 11, 2020 By Shannon Hayes Off

This is a picture of our Thanksgiving dinner (rare filet mignon with garlic and shallot roasted spinach).  It was absolutely fabulous.  We have not done many new recipes recently… with the holiday, work and some shopping, we fell back on quick and easy. Hopefully in…

Day Seven: It finally happened

November 13, 2020 By Shannon Hayes Off

We almost made it through our first week loving everything… but it was not to be. No recipe for today as what I made was just plain terrible. The vegetable was a cheesy-spinach type thing.  Whoever created this recipe must not be able to taste…

Keto and my digestive system

October 26, 2020 By Shannon Hayes Off

Doug hasn’t had a single side effect from Keto. I on the other hand had terrible problems starting the 3rd day in, causing me fear of riding the subway to work, or any other situation that put me at risk of being too far from…

Mexican Pie

October 23, 2020 By Shannon Hayes Off

The bookmarklet I use to grab recipes with for some reason did not record the URL for this recipe, and sadly I have no idea where I found it. Be sure not to use packaged taco seasoning for this, as those tend to have 5…

Beginning ActionScript 3.0 – More about variables

September 25, 2020 By Shannon Hayes Off

It seems that we’ve already discussed so much about the variables, but today our topic is still the variables. If you already know what the variables are, then you don’t need to read the following text. If you don’t, maybe the following text will help…
