I set out to make a Keto Diet Friendly avocado based smoothie bowl for you, however, the banana in this recipe totally wipes out that idea. I was going to replace my banana with my favorite natural sweetener instead, which I’ll do next time for sure, but had one little banana left and my little boys were about to brawl for it. So this mama used it up, fast! Also, I needed some fiber in my diet on this particular day. Long ramble aside, the banana addition is delicious. But if you’re strict Keto vs modified Keto (like me), nix the ‘nana and add your favorite sweetener instead.
One of my main challenges with my modified Keto Diet food plan (with carb cycling), is finding meals I truly enjoy, that are still Keto Approved. Bad, unhealthy habits die hard, y’all. One meal I’ve ALWAYS loved, was a chicken salad sandwich. In fact, let me tell you about the very FIRST one, I ever had.
I just turned 18, a couple weeks before. Bright-eyed, excited, anxious and equally timid, as I drove from my little farm of a hometown, into the big city of Columbus, Ohio. My palms sweaty from anticipation, wondering what my first college class would be like and if I would remember where each building was located,
It’s surprisingly warm today; this Sunday of weird. I spent all morning deep cleaning my kitchen, the one that has only 3 useable square-sized countertops (the fourth square is covered in random stuff that I try to clean off, but somehow gets all cluttered again right away). The kitchen in my 1970’s box of a house is, well, awful. The room itself is pretty large, but the actual design is just ridiculous and not a great use of space AT all. I mean, the entire house has me scratching my head wondering what the architect was thinking. The entire bottom floor is literally a SQUARE.
Today, I’m going to share my own exact photo editing process, using only FREE software programs and mobile apps. Nope, I’m not joking. And I am a Professional Portrait and Wedding Photographer who still actively accepts freelance photo gigs from time to time. I’ve used so many different tools throughout the years and my current editing process works great for the beginning photographer, the new blogger and anyone trying to run their creative business on a budget.PIN FOR LATER Let’s Talk About Free Editing Apps I’ve found that photo editing programs are a lot like jeans. No two are exactly the same and they all need to be tried on before choosing the perfect fit!
This is THE question, right? How do you balance your work life, your personal life, your mommy duties, partner duties AND try to keep up with house chores and get any kind of sleep?
Here’s my answer…you ready for this? I mean it’s huge!!! Hire a nanny and a cleaning person and while you’re at it, just clone yourself twice. No biggie.
I am a smart-ass. Yes, I know this! My point is that there’s no such thing as true balance. I almost feel like balance is a dirty word, giving us false hope of perfection. We are our own worst enemies.
