Fluffy Keto Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Fluffy Keto Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Growing up, I don’t remember my mom being in the kitchen much. If I remember correctly, my dad turned out most of the family meals when I was a kid. It wasn’t because my mom didn’t know her way around the kitchen, because she did. […]

Why cheating on keto is stupid

I’d like to consider myself to be a good person with a pretty good moral code. I don’t do others dirty, I try to keep feelings in mind when making decisions, and I always want the best for everyone in my life. But for some […]
