Low Carb Ramen

I discovered MIRACLE RICE AND MIRACLE NOODLES! I use the miracle rice for my low carb bubble tea.   (https://miraclenoodle.com/) They have zero calories and zero carbs (or less than 2g depending what kind you get) so now I can make low carb ramen! Ingredients: 1 package of miracle noodles (follow the instructions on the…

Dark Horse Climbing Comp

I had an excellent time last night at the Dark Horse Climbing comp! This one was at MetroRock at Newburyport.  I really enjoyed the setting and the variety of problems.  There was one green one that I tried so many times and failed but finally got it in the last 15 minutes! It’s so like…

Chocolate Protein Muffins

I eat these post workout for source of protein and also a nice treat.  I didn’t like the taste of the first batch so I tweaked this to make it my own special recipe for the second batch. It’s not super sweet or as moist as I’d like it.   But as with all things…

What low carb really means

Low carb peanut butter cookies

I made some other ones with a few ingredients that were probably healthier and more protein, but they fell apart easily and really wasn’t tasty enough for me to want to make them again.  It was just easier to make a protein shake.  But this, this actually tasted good!! Plus I cut up YUP bar…

Low carb BUBBLE TEA!!!

What happens when you have sugar again

I told myself if I go on vacation, I won’t restrict my diet.  Mostly because when I travel, part of the fun is trying food of that area or just enjoying myself by eating whatever I want. I was at a wedding in Detroit this past weekend, which was a blast.  My friends Molly and…

Yup B-Up Protein Bars!

Ever since I started doing low carb, I had to stop eating cliff bars and all those protein bars. It’s because, unknown to me, most of these bars are full of sugar!!! It’s just like eating a candy bar with tons of protein. Enter Yup brand bars.  I found out about them via Jessie Graff’s…
