Ever since we have been trying to stay on Keto I have looked for a good pancake recipe. I found the Cream Cheese Pancakes which we liked a lot but they kind of were not the best to take camping. Then one day while in Costco I found something I thought we could try.

As you can see it is Paleo not Keto but I thought we would give it a try. It is high in Carbs but we don’t eat them often. You just add water which makes them great for camping.

I then decided to look on Amazon and see what I could find. I just can’t trust Costco because sometimes they carry something then you never see it again. Well look what I found on Amazon.

Or you can buy the regular and the chocolate chip mixes together and get a better deal

Ok back to the cooking. The pancakes have always risen to look like regular flour pancakes. I had always measured the mix and water out. On this day I didn’t. You need to mix the batter up then let it sit for 5 minutes or until it thickens. It should be pretty thick. Well I put to much water and this is what happens.

Well I had to keep adding mix until I got it just right.

Now you can see the difference once I added enough mix.

As you can see they look a lot better.

I just need to mention my griddle. I wanted a nice grill and found this one at a charity shop. I brought it home and tried it out. I fell in love with it. If you are looking for great griddle look no further.

Just one last thing to say about the pancakes. I made them for our great niece and nephew they loved them.

Be sure to check out my links if you are interested in anything and if you decide to buy something that is even better. Thanks

Well thanks for stopping by!

41 Pounds of Apples and Counting

David came home with 3 1/2 5 gallon buckets of apples that he picked off a tree that was standing in one of his students front yard.  David is a special education school bus driver. It took him 10 hours to cut and core them all.  He put 3 kitchen garbage bags of apple slices in the freezer.  I had to decide what to do with them. Read on to find out what I do with them.

Keto Energy or Excited Energy

I feel like I really did a lot of today. I just seemed to have so much energy. I know I do have more energy, since I started on this life change.
I started the day off checking my email. Then off to clean the bathroom. I got the towels washed, counter, toilet, and tub cleaned. Then I did the floors.

I knew the boys wouldn’t clean it while I am in Gig Harbor, WA taking care of my daughter, Sarah, after her foot surgery.

The Flat Ole Hippies Are Off Again

Our friends, the Crewdsons, asked us to go to the Alaska State Fair on Saturday.  We had never been before.

We saw all kinds of things, like little trees, plants that looked like mammoth, tractor pulls, and the record-breaking pumpkin weighing at 1471lbs.

What is a Plateau?

No I don’t mean high flat ground. What I mean is a state of little or no change following a period of activity or progress. This is what Module 12 is about; troubleshooting.

First off what you should do is retake your measurements because sometimes we may lose inches and not pounds.  You could try on those pants that were just a little tight.

Sticking to Your New Life Change

How many times have we tried to change something in our lives and fell off the horse?  Why didn’t you try getting back on?  It takes time to change a habit in our life; whether it be eating, smoking or exercising.  I know I am bad about this.  I read today that it takes person 66 days to change a habit.  I would think it would be the same with changing to a healthier lifestyle.

OH NO, Not Exercise!

In module 10 of the Master Keto class it is about what exercises you should do everyday.  I am doing good to walk because my feet hurt so much.  That is until I get them fixed.  I have to go take care of my daughter, Sarah, in Gig Harbor, Washington next month after her foot surgery.  I will see how she does then maybe I will go get mine done.

I know that exercise is needed and do understand that we need some strength exercise.  I will follow Robb Wolfe exercise plan as close as I can get to it.  I do not belong to a gym because I am terrible about going, so it is just a waste of money for me.  I never know what I am going to do day-to-day because everything changes all the time.
