A medical ID is recommended to anyone with a medical condition, including Type 1 Diabetes. Wearing one can give you peace of mind knowing that in an emergency, responders can be easily alerted of your diabetes and help ensure you get proper medical care.

The Giveaway starts NOW! And ends Sunday 9/24. Check out my latest Instagram post to enter! Good luck!!


Low Carb Waffles for Breakfast


Earlier this week I made my favorite low carb waffles. I topped them with frozen blueberries, hemp, and my almond butter maple syrup (which is a mixture of almond butter, maple syrup, and a bit of water or coconut oil to thin it out). I use the REAL maple syrup, but the sugar impact isn’t bad because I use a little less than a tablespoon (<10 carbs). And when you add the nut butter and water/coconut oil it really stretches it out so you still have a super robust flavor without all the sugar.


Magic Hour Book


I got this creepy fall read from my Mom last weekend. She is in a book club and is always letting me borrow the books – the good ones only of course! I just started diving into this one and it already has me hooked.

In the rugged Pacific Northwest lies the Olympic National Forest—nearly a million acres of impenetrable darkness and impossible beauty. From deep within this old growth forest, a six-year-old girl appears. Speechless and alone, she offers no clue as to her identity, no hint of her past.

Having retreated to her western Washington hometown after a scandal left her career in ruins, child psychiatrist Dr. Julia Cates is determined to free the extraordinary little girl she calls Alice from a prison of unimaginable fear and isolation. To reach her, Julia must discover the truth about Alice’s past—although doing so requires help from Julia’s estranged sister, a local police officer. The shocking facts of Alice’s life test the limits of Julia’s faith and strength, even as she struggles to make a home for Alice—and for herself.


AHS on Netflix


Do I have any American Horror Story fans on here? We missed last years season The Cult which has a dark and twisted political theme to it, and as I was scrolling through Netflix yesterday I noticed they added it to their library! So if you’re wondering where I’ll be after dinner tonight… it will be on the couch binging a few episodes of AHS Cult.
