It happens. Sometimes it happens because you want it to, sometimes it happens because of what is available to you, sometimes it happens mindlessly – but you know what is worse than “cheating”? carrying shame about it and letting it define you. Come on kids, there is no cheating, only choices. So, let’s talk about how to cheat mindfully and how to move forward positively.
Karen and Mark talk about eating Keto in a world where not everyone accepts it as a valid choice.
Making the mindful choice of changing your way of eating can bring some criticism and that can wear on wear on you. We are discussing how we manage judgement and keep our sanity, and how we arm our kids to do the same.
Recipe Chicken Parmesan
This is a Karen classic recipe, which means it is somewhat improvisational. Here is the essence of the now infamous chicken parm:
-Cut chicken into strips
-Dip chicken into mayo/egg mixture
-Dip coated chicken into pork rind crumbs, Parmesan, and spices (basil, oregano. thyme,…)
-Fry in butter
-Lay out chicken strips in casserole dish
-Make a red sauce in the crock pot. Start with canned tomatoes and add spices, butter and cream to taste – but make sure to sneak in the fat.
-Cover chicken in red sauce
-Cover in shredded mozzarella
-Add some spices on top
-Bake for about 25 minutes at 350
-Take out of the oven, eat it all up and love your life!
No body can chase you if you don’t run.
Peer pressure can be tough, but you are tougher. If criticism comes at you, step aside!
Celebrating is fun. Holidays and traditions are important. But, they can also be a challenge when we are trying to take care of ourselves. In this show, Karen and Mark talk about rethinking the way we mark milestones and honor ceremonies.
Let’s brainstorm about fun things to do and different ways to incorporate food and treats into our merrymaking!

Food is fun and holiday food can be even more fun.
We have two classic Keto recipes that can be altered for any time of year, and any event. What can you do to these to make them right for your holiday?
Change can be exciting and empowering, but it often comes with a sense of loss as well. Making changes to your environment and finding delicious substitutes for your comfort foods are great ways to ease the transition.

Going Keto all alone can be more difficult, but asking for the help and support of your partner or those close to you may lead you to find a deeper level of commitment to your preferred way of eating – and maybe even to your partner or friends.
