Keto Creamy Lime Cheesecake (paleo, gluten free)


I'm over a month and a half into Keto, and still trying to find my groove. I know that "treats" make me crave sweets like crazy, so I have to limit them heavily; they're a real trigger for me. I've gone through so many periods of eating low carb, low sugar, and various other super strict diets over the years-- but I might always consider myself a recovering sugar addict. I'm definitely making progress though, even if it's taken my 5 years to get where I am now. My birthday was yesterday though, and I have been so eager to create some new recipes.

Low-Carb Garlic Cheddar Biscuits (primal, keto, gluten free)



I pretty much thought I was done creating recipes for this blog, but a recent adventure into eating low-carb inspired me to create. I'm not sure, but I may have a few more recipes up my sleeve. 
I don't have much to say, aside from "I hope you enjoy these!" I've posted a photo of the macro breakdown below.

Homemade Healing Toothpaste





After giving birth to my second daughter last February, my oral health was in ruins. I was honestly afraid to look at my teeth in the mirror, because it gave me severe anxiety. Sorry if this is TMI-- but after flossing and brushing, my sink looked like a crime scene. I never even knew that gums could bleed so profusely. Over just the course of about 4 months, my gum line had receded quite severely. I was trying to adjust to being a mom times two, was barely sleeping, trying to work from home, and was generally over-whelmed. All of that to say, I struggled to prioritize a visit with a dentist.  I started taking Megasporebiotic probiotic supplement, and decided to come up with a brushing blend. The results we're nothing short of miraculous.

5 Ingredient Carrot Apple Cake (AIP, 21DSD)


I don't have anything witty to say about this recipe, or what's going on in my life that is relevant at the moment. Sorry; I'm failing in that area as a blogger. Anyhow- I'm currently almost 7 months postpartum with my second child, and have been trying diligently to get back to where I was (diet and exercise wise) pre pregnancy. Moderate carb makes me feel best, and I love coming up with "treats" that are sweetener free and low (ish) carb. Feeling like you're indulging when you're not is THE BEST.  This recipe definitely made me feel this way. The fact that it was cheap and easy to make made it even better. 5 ingredients? Yeah. I realized I didn't account for the coconut oil, so it's actually 6. Whatevs.

Paleo Baked N'Oatmeal



Getting my 3.5 year old to eat is the most difficult thing I do on a daily basis. She goes through periods of eating everything she sets her eyes on, and then suddenly she won't anything but fried plantains. In her defense, they're delicious and so good for the ol' gut flora. Anyway, I'm in a total food slump right now- AKA I'm tired of cookin'. What inspired this was a trip out to a coffee shop, where I remembered fondly the days where I'd go there and pick up a bowl of baked oatmeal to have with my coffee. I'm pleased to report that this satiated my craving! This was also a good alternative to the fairly-high-in-sugar Bobo's Oat Bars my toddler has been loving lately. Best of all, it's low carb/sugar and chock full of nutrient dense ingredients. My husband and toddler enjoyed this little treat topped with a few tablespoons of organic half and half.

Mini Chocolate Tartlets (Paleo, Sweetener FREE!)




Fact: I struggle with food photography. The above photo was a result of me putting the finished product on a cutting board, placing it on my patio, and snapping a few pictures (while holding my 12 week old). I use to thrift for new dishes and utensils, and browse through photos for inspiration, but I just didn't feel passionate about it. I do envy my fellow bloggers who can make all of their recipes look completely irresistable though. The photos really sell the recipe. If this photo doesn't "sell" this recipe, just take my word for it: they are superbly delicious
