I’m over the moon for this WHOLESOME YUM skinny margarita recipe!      It tastes just like a regular margarita, and you can have it on a low-carb, Keto lifestyle. It only takes a few minutes to make. 

I love to make these during the summer months and have one (some, lol) out on my patio. Chips & Salsa to add😀

When I found this recipe, I was so excited! I still get to enjoy a cocktail on a keto lifestyle eating plan.

I hope you give it a try. 

Let me know what you think.


The Chef Salad

The Chef salad is one of the best salads to make during the summer months. It is a naturally low-carb salad option, and tasty for everyone no matter if you are dieting or watching what you eat. The ingredients for the Chef salad are very simple and easy; and, if you need to add or remove items that is an easy fix.  The Chef salad can be made with whatever you like there is no one way to prepare it.  It is probably one of the most convenient and quick salads to make. It may take you 15-20 minutes to prepare and get on a plate. This easy Wholesome Yum chef salad recipe is a classic.

Healthy food for the Soul... Self-care starts in the kitchen

 Sausage, Bell Peppers, Onions, and Garlic served over riced cauliflower or low-carb pasta.

Self-care in the kitchen

Radical baby steps are required to return to optimal health

Healthy food for the Soul.. Self-care starts in the kitchen

Salmon, Riced Cauliflower, Broccoli with Bell Peppers, and Onions...oh my 

I read or heard a quote that really resonated with me regarding self-care and food. And quote it says or it said "self-care starts in the kitchen."  Wow, that really stuck with me. 

Now I'm not saying to go completely cold turkey with your new eating lifestyle habits. What I'm saying is baby steps and if we're in the mindset in the headspace to start making a change, then changes can definitely happen in your kitchen in what you're preparing and what you purchase from the store to put in your body.

So here is a plate that I prepared for myself and I also cook extra to have as leftovers. 

I season the salmon, just with salmon seasoning and several other spices that I had in my cabinet. I grilled it and added lemon juice instead of salting the fish. I then took again rice cauliflower from the freezer section in the grocery store and I did a little seasoning on that with a little butter and I topped it with a little bit of sprinkled cheese. I then took broccoli and added onions and bell peppers of various colors to the mix. 

Voila, enjoy.

Here are 7 tasty meals you can make in 30 minutes or less

Do you struggle daily and weekly with what to prepare for yourself and your family food wise?

These 7 dishes that I'm sharing with you can all be done and 30 minutes or less.

Now I want to say that they are keto, gluten-free and paleo friendly.

Just because they are categorized as keto gluten-free or paleo doesn't mean that you have to be on that particular type of diet. It just means that sometimes it's okay to divert from the standard American diet.
