When I was growing up, there was nothing better after a full day of sledding and snow fort building than a mug of hot chocolate. My sister and I would come home with frozen fingers and runny noses and stir our hot chocolate with candy canes. I still enjoy hot chocolate on cold winter nights even though I don’t build snow forts anymore.
When I was a teenager working at a retirement home after school, I saw elderly women who had their hair dyed on a regular basis. I never understood why. I told everyone who would listen that I wasn’t going to do that when my hair turned gray. I was going to let it grow and proudly wear my beautiful long silver hair.

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.

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!
