Texas I love you & miss you!!!


I just came back from a 4-day business trip to a city just outside of Dallas, Texas.  It was wonderful!  The weather was perfect.  The people were so warm and welcoming.  Except for the constant array of Canadian inspired jokes ranging from the name of our currency (loonies= 1 dollar, toonies= 2 dollars) to us…

Leftover Crackers (Low Carb & Gluten Free) and a date with Tony Robbins

I’ve been obsessed with Tony Robbins for the past week.  I’ve been watching at least one Tony Robbins’ video a day!  I think I’m becoming his stalker.  I follow him on Twitter now.   I’ve heard people say before that you should model the actions of those you admire.  Being a business woman, I often hear…

Low Carb Hamburger Buns (Gluten Free)

What goes on opposite sides of a hamburger???  If you guessed a bun you are correct!  Some people eat their hamburgers bunless (like me), or they try an oopsie roll, they even go as far as wrapping lettuce around the burger.  I’ll pass on the lettuce but I have tried an oopsie roll and I…

Before (2010), and the middle of my weightloss journey (2011).  The first picture and the middle picture is from the same conference 1 year apart.

Have you seen the movie, The Holiday, starring Cameron Diaz?  It is an amazing, funny, love story where two women swap homes and find love.  Awwww sweet love.  Cameron Diaz goes to another country, meets Jude Law, falls in utter love with him.  I could do that.  I could do that just by standing in…

Quick Low Carb Apple Fritters (Gluten Free)

I’m in the middle of trying to get someone to take over the lease for my apartment.  Like the creative person I am, I strategically starting cooking some apple flavoured pancakes (aka quick apple fritters) before my first applicant showed up.  The sweet smell of apples dancing with cinnamon flowed through my cozy space.  Is…

Chicken Fries and the Sesame Seed Flour Experiment

It was 8:30 p.m. and I was staring at the chicken breast that I had taken out earlier to defrost for supper.  I was thinking to eat or not to eat?  I’m having one of those days where I’m just not hungry!!!  One of the wonderful and sometimes annoying benefits of a low carb diet. …

This week has gone by so fast and it’s only Wednesday!  It’s around 10:30 p.m. and I just finished my supper which was spicy calamari rings with coconut flour.  I’ve been so busy that everything in the past few days has been a quick meal or snack.  We all need those kinds of recipes.  Elana’s…

Dairy Free Cream Cheese

I’m so thrilled to bring you this unique “how to” recipe.  I found it when I stumbled onto Vanessa Romero’s blog, Healthy Living How To.  I had no idea almonds were so versatile.  The thought of turning almonds into cream cheese sounded complicated.  I assure you, it is not complicated.  It does however require patience. …

Dairy Free Butter Chicken (Low Carb)

Dairy Free Butter Chicken

I’ve made this dish 3 times!  Each time I keep making it spicier and perfecting the sauce:D  To be perfectly honest I don’t remember how spicy or “curry-like” butter chicken is supposed to taste.  I haven’t had “real” butter chicken in at least 5 years.  This recipe was inspired by Rob, a guy I share…

That wonderful time of year is fast approaching!  Barbeque season!  I hope you are not planning on buying hamburgers from a box…that would just be sad.  Some manufactured hamburgers contain fillers like bread crumbs.  It is so easy to make homemade hamburgers I want to encourage everyone to try.  Then to make it even easier,…
