Low Carb Keto Happy Hour

Low Carb

Low Carb Keto Happy Hour
I’m not a big drinker at all, but I do love to indulge in a beer or a glass of wine with dinner or out with friends. But indulging and diet don’t really seem to go together usually. On a low carb keto diet you can absolutely enjoy wine, beer & mixed drinks as long as they are low in carbs and fit in your macros.

Also, even though alcohol can fit into your diet, don’t go crazy with it. Speaking from experience too much alcohol can lead to the drunken (no diet) munchies or a hangover greasy fast food extravaganza.

Friday Faves!

Happy Friday & happy long weekend! Whenever there is a three day weekend, I always plan a lot of things – hang out with friends, clean the house, workout every day, plan an epic meal prep, and try a little self-care to finish up the weekend.

Most of that turns into shoulda, woulda, coulda & I spend my weekend sipping margaritas & lounging in front of Netflix. This weekend will be different! No, really I swear. I’ve rounded up my favorite recipes, must reads, the most shoppable sales & an easy self-care routine to stick to even if I do sip one too many drinks.

MUST SIP

Citrus Summer Sangria

With summer coming to an end, I wanted a really citrusy & fun drink. This sangria is super refreshing, flavorful and is the perfect drink to send off summer!

SELF CARE

I wrote this post about my favorite ways to treat myself in the evening before I go to sleep. My routine has gotten a  little off track, but these activities are SO doable that there really is no excuse. I’ll be incorporating this routine back into my nightly rituals!

MUST EAT

This pasta dish is good, loaded with veggies & bursting with flavor. Definitely a lighter take on the typical mayo laden pasta side dish.
