Vegan Cultured Butter

In addition to all my usual stuff… intermittent fasting, high fat, low carb, gluten-free, grain-free, I’ve been completely dairy-free for a few weeks and really think it’s helping.

All The Good Stuff Granola

I’ve tried this a bunch of different ways and blended a few online recipes together. So far, this is my favorite combination. It’s gluten-free, low carb/keto/paleo, and could easily be made nut-free and/or vegan (see notes below).

Ultimate Fat Bombs

Mark Sisson is a genius. I was so-so on fat bombs before. Typically the recipes taste like blandly flavored coconut oil and butter. Sisson’s from his book, The Keto Reset Diet, are actually an amazing dessert replacement, in addition to being the perfect fat bombs to boost your fat macro. Here are my favorites so […]

Cacao Butter Coffee

I took a break from a ketogenic diet (keto) for awhile. This past summer I experimented with Intermittent Fasting (IF). I am continuing IF, but looking to expand my fasts to extended periods.

Spotify’s #2017Wrapped (My Top Listens)

I always appreciate Spotify’s digest of statistics it has on me, haha. My list this year is a mix of favorite general finds, bands I went to see live, songs I was trying to practice singing for voice lessons, and one of my mom’s favorite songs that I played over and over after visiting her […]
