Zucchini Sausage Egg Muffins Recipe (Gluten-Free & Low Carb)

How to make low carb gluten-free breakfast muffins with eggs, sausage, and zucchini - This quick, simple, and easy recipe has a ton of keto protein and is great for breakfast, brunch, lunches, or snacks.

This recipe comes from Irena Macri of Instant Pot … Read more

I fear that I will not be able to maintain the weight loss and that all my hard work will be for nothing as I balloon back up to my current weight. I did not do very well in my “physician supervised weight loss” and actually gained weight the first three months. I’ve been doing better since month … Read more

I may share in the days ahead; I may not. At any rate, Blogalicious was awesome. The people were fabulous, and the hotel was palatial. Every event was brilliantly planned, and the food was sumptuous, better than any conference food I’ve ever eaten. Oh, the food. On Saturday night, Aunt Jemima sponsored a late night breakfast for dinner meal that featured Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr, better known as … Read more
