Here lately, I’ve been trying to follow low-carb/Keto diet during the week and pretty much do whatever on the weekend. Since its the holiday season, I know I’m going to pack on a few pounds with parties and such, so I’m trying to offset any BIG gains by doing this moderation-type diet. (It sounds weird but I definitely think its helping!)

Anywhoo, I’ve been getting a little tired of eating cheese, meat, and almonds 24/7 and a friend of mine (who is also doing the Keto diet) gave me one of her favorite recipes for low-carb biscuits and I was super excited to try them out!

Here’s what you need:

~2 cups almond flour

~2 tsp baking powder

~1/2 tsp sea salt

~2 eggs (beaten)

~1/3 cup butter (measure it, then melt it)

First, mix all dry ingredients together. Then, stir in the eggs and melted butter and mix well.

Scoop out with a cookie scoop (made this process soooooo much easier!).

Flatten the dough balls a wee bit and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. And bam! they’re done!

Guys, these were GREAT! Granted, they were small, but that’s totally okay with me! They gave me that “carb” texture I needed AND they didn’t wreck my total carb count for the day! Bonus–they’re gluten free! So my GF peeps out there, y’all need to make these!

So, the day after Thanksgiving Huff the Tot got the tummy bug and thought that Mommy made a better vomit catcher than her bucket. Yeah. Seriously.

Naturally, I assumed the rest of us were going to get it. A week passed and nothing happened so I figured we’d dodged a bullet. Then on Saturday, I woke up with a sore throat. And white spots on my throat. Sunday, the same things happened. I hit that sore throat hard and thought I had turned a corner. Little did I know that the germs had also turned a corner and decided to go south. Yep. You know exactly what I’m talking about.

Because of this, Mommy has been moving a little slow today while also scrubbing every inch of this house with Clorox wipes. I’m completely convinced that one of my sweet little germ bags gave this to me. Because those kids share every germ imaginable. The gals at I Mom So Hard know EXACTLY what I’m talking about:

 

Here’s to a healthier holiday season!
