These delicious low carb keto tortillas are so easy to make and come in under 0.70 grams of sugar carbs per tortilla. The lovely coconut flavor (albeit subtle) does an excellent job of masking the eggy flavor you may expect.

Back in high school my friend Alisha’s Mom made THE BEST lemon bars on the planet! Completely binge-worthy! She would lure me over to her house with them.

When lymph becomes stagnate, our cells can’t work efficiently, causing toxins to build up, and resulting in health issues like these. [Read more…]

It’s hidden in condiments, soups, and even meat! So even if you faithfully abstain from sugary ice cream treats and sugar-laden cereal, you are probably getting much more sugar than you realize.
