Recipe – The Cream Spinach Fat Bomb

Quick and easy to make – and quite good. I’d better be right about fat being harmless though or I might be in a body bag after this one. Ingredients: 2 boxes frozen chopped spinach 1 stick salted butter 1/2 box of cream cheese parm cheese (the stuff in the cardboard can) Directions Thaw the…

I Started Ketosis in Less Than Two Days With This One Weird Trick

I’m sorry – I couldn’t help myself with that ‘one weird trick’ phrase that’s used as clickbait all over the Internet – but it really *was* one little thing that helped me get into ketosis. I’ve been doing low carb to varying degrees for a dozen years now and the one thing I noticed in…
