We have gotten back into trying to follow a low carb diet. While I certainly miss yummy sandwiches and baked goods, it’s pretty amazing how much better I have been feeling! I haven’t been perfect but have been actually enjoying what we have been eating over the past week and am eager to continue discovering new, yummy recipes and keeping on this healthy path.
This past week I had made some homemade tomatilla salasa to go with some shrimp tacos (using the amazing HEB low carb tortillas). I still wanted to do something with shrimp to use up the tomatilla salsa so I decided to make shrimp bowls! I didn’t really have a recipe in mind, I just threw them together but they turned out so amazing! And only about 3 net carbs per serving!! We will definately be making this dish a lot, and you could easily swap in different types of protien!
If you haven’t seen it all over the internet, you must be living under a rock, hahaha, but today is the last day to enjoy Amazon Prime Day! I’ve kept an eye on all the deals and have noticed so many of our favorite summer items are on sale! We had a blast making the most of summer with these items and highly recommend them! The clock is ticking on these deals so be sure to snatch them up quick! But even not on sale, these are some must-have summer items!
Intex Explorer K2 Kayak, 2-Person Inflatable Kayak
Dave bought this for me last summer and I have spent hours paddling around the lake in this thing! It definitely isn’t as great as a solid kayak, but it’s so easy to transport, fits nicely in the back of our car all rolled up, we never have to deal with strapping it to the roof of our car, is easy to set up, and it’s perfect for us while we are still living in an apartment and don’t have much storage space as it all fits neatly in a bag!
I hate to be that person, but I can’t believe we are already halfway through the year. I meant to post this at the beginning of July but the month has already started to get away from me. This year has held it’s fair share of ups and downs. It’s flow by, but at the same time, seemed have dragged by. We don’t have any major trips planned for the year. That’s a first for us. But I am grateful we still find a way to find a little adventure each week, it’s month, even if we are just exploring our own neck of the woods. We are firm believers in being tourists in your own town, and thankfully Texas is huge and we have only begun to scratch the surface!
I am all about fruit and cold desserts this time of year. Give me chilled creme brulee, chilled pies, ice cream, berries and cream, I’m all for it this hot time of year. I think my favorite of all is tres leches. I’d have it every day if I could! Hahaha. So today I have to share this easy and amazing recipe for Tres Leches cupcakes!
This past weekend we visited the Sherwood Forest Faire in McDade, east of Austin. We had kept seeing ads for it and when I came across discounted tickets thanks to Costco we decided to give it a try. I didn’t honestly have very high hopes for it, thinking it wouldn’t be as great as my much loved, and missed Maryland Ren Fest, but I was actually blown away!
