We are well into winter now, and I’m sure you or your spouse has had at least one sore throat, cough or flu-like aches and pains. Am I right? Having a sick spouse can be a really tough thing. You want to help him feel better, but you also don’t want to catch whatever he has.
This time of year, many people are looking for ways to improve their lives. This is probably why so many resolutions are made on the first of the year. However, as I’m sure you know, these resolutions don’t usually last long. But why? I think it is because most resolutions are difficult to put into practice. How does this improve your life?

The beginning of the Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival celebration is coming up on February 5. We’ve never celebrated the Chinese New Year in our family, but recently I learned more about the activities, food, and fun involved with the holiday and thought it would be interesting to share what I’ve learned with you!
Last month I introduced you to Hood Calorie Countdown; my new favorite keto friendly milk substitute. Dan and I have been drinking it ever since, and I have been trying it in some ketogenic recipes to see how well it works. The results? It is awesome! You can use your favorite variety of Hood Calorie Countdown in place of milk (regular, almond, soy, etc.) in your favorite recipes and reduce the number of carbs dramatically! That is what I did for these low carb blueberry pancakes and they are so good.
Since the beginning of the year, I have been following a low carb ketogenic diet and it has been going pretty well. I have lost 15 pounds and have kept it off for a few months now. As with any diet, it definitely takes some getting used to. When I first started out, one of the hardest things for me to give up was milk (especially chocolate milk). Did you know that one cup of whole milk has about 12 grams of carbs and 12 grams of sugar? This definitely means that milk is not a keto friendly drink!
Staying on track can be tough when you have a sweet tooth like I do. That is why I love the new Weight Watchers Freestyle™ program. With their list of zero Points® foods, I have the flexibility to incorporate sweet treats into my day and still reach my goals. Plus, with all of the Weight Watchers approved products available at Walmart, sweet treats like these Berry Cheesecake Thins are easy to make!

About a year ago, I decided to try eating more real food and work in organic fruits and vegetables when possible. I’m not a strict “clean eater” by any means, but I have been enjoying making more of my own recipes and buying less processed store-bought food. When I first started doing this, Dan agreed but was definitely a bit hesitant.
