Episode 6: Cheating

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.

Episode 5: Peer Pressure

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!
