I hope this Instant Pot Lover’s Gift Guide helps you find the perfect little something!

Happy Gifting!

10 Products to Have on Hand when Carb Cravings Strike and you Need a Keto Dessert!

If you don’t know this about me already- I hate grocery shopping! I either order online or put together orders online for local pickup. For this reason, I have added online links for your convenience. These are affiliate links, which means if you place an order after clicking one, I will earn a very small percentage at NO expense to you! It’s a win-win, really.

My assumption here is that you have baking powder and vanilla on hand, so I have not included these in the list.

The first ingredients to consider and the foundational ingredients of most keto treats are

Full-Fat Dairy Products:

Heavy cream, cream cheese, sour cream, and of course, BUTTER!  These are a few of the ONLY ingredients I still order from my local grocery store (I add it to my order for pickup).

Secondly, you must look to replace in your gluten free, low carb, keto desserts, and baked goods is wheat flour, so number one on the list is my favorite:

Almond Flour:

You can use almond flour as a wheat flour substitute in almost any baked good recipe! It’s higher in fat, protein, and fiber, but also much higher in nutrient value.

You can buy almond flour in supermarkets (like Bob’s Mills), but I find it easier and less expensive to order online.  For most baked goods, the finer milled products, like Honeyville yield the best results. I highly recommend it.

Coconut Flour:

Coconut flour is very versatile and excellent for those who are looking for a gluten free and nut free flour alternative. It is quite long lasting because the ratios for coconut flour to wheat flour are quite different: you use much less coconut flour! also buy my coconut flour online.  

Coconut Oil:

There are so many uses for coconut oil that I think everyone should have two on hand at all times: One in the kitchen and one for the bathroom. I use coconut oil in cooking and in my daily beauty routine. You can read more about that here. 

PIN THIS 

A milk substitute is also very important. You can use almond milk, but I prefer:

Coconut Milk:

Milk is high in carbs but is used in many baked goods. Thankfully, coconut milk can be used as a high fat, low carb substitute. I order in bulk to make sure I never run out!

You will also need to replace refined sugars in your keto desserts.

Sugar Substitutes:

Sugar is obviously high in carbs and a big no-no on a low carb or keto diet so it is essential to have a replacement on hand for your sweet keto treats. I use Stevia drops when a liquid is required, and for a granulated replacement, I like Swerve and Truvia.

Flavored Syrups:

There are so many options available! These are utilized in one of the recipes I have on  My Favorite 15 Keto Desserts: Kill your Carb Cravings- Fast! list.  

This is a link to the caramel flavor: it’s delicious. These are also great for making decadent coffee drinks. Take a look around after you click on the caramel flavor link. You’ll be amazed at the variety!

Almond Butter:

One of my favorite, quick keto desserts recipes you will get when you subscribe to my FREE resource library is made with my favorite sugar-free almond butter: Barney Butter. YUM!! Many recipes call for peanut butter, but I prefer almond.

Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate:

Some of my most intense carb cravings are chocolate cravings! Thankfully there are many chocolate Keto treats recipes out there that utilize sugar-free dark chocolate.  I also keep Special Dark Cocoa on hand for keto desserts that call for cocoa in place of actual chocolate.

Lastly, an ingredient you will happy to have on hand for keto sauces as well,

Xanthan Gum Powder:

The most important piece of advice I can give about xanthan gum is a little goes a very long way. It is a thickening agent and can give smooth, rich textures to sauces and help bind and emulsify. One bag will last ages and is definitely worth the investment.

I hope you will find this list helpful.  I like to be prepared because I never know when the cravings will strike, and now you will be, too!!

This is one of my favorite keto desserts- the recipe takes less than 3 minutes start to finish.  It’s one of the 15 you’ll get when you subscribe to my FREE library!

Detox your Beauty Routine: 5 Easy Changes to Make Today

Detox your Beauty Routine: 5 Easy Changes to Make Today

The average woman puts anywhere from 200 to 500 synthetic ingredients on her body every day! I’ll show you how to detox your beauty routine by ditching the chemicals with 5 quick, simple changes.

I wasn’t really aware of just how toxic these chemicals are until recently. I have spent the past few years scrutinizing my food labels and made the switch to organic cleaning products, all the while slathering on dangerous chemicals from head to toe: chemicals that cause cancer and interfere with hormone production and immunity (like I need any more problems with immunity). If you detox your beauty routine you’ll be doing yourself and your immune system a tremendous service.

We are exposed to toxins all day long. They are in everything from our tap water to food, to our furniture and flooring. It’s impossible to escape them all.

So why bother with a beauty detox?

60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies. If you detox your beauty routine by ditching the chemicals in your beauty products, you can significantly limit your daily exposure.

Like me, many people are very aware of the chemicals in foods and strive to improve their diets in an effort to limit chemical exposure (which is awesome!), but the majority are unaware of dangerous chemicals they use in their daily routines each day.

The FDA doesn’t require any pre-market testing or approval before products hit the shelves. Many of the ingredients in U.S. products have been banned in Europe and other countries.

The European Union has banned over 1,300 chemicals found in cosmetics. The FDA (in the U.S.) has only banned eight and restricted three. Isn’t that crazy?? It’s a free market and no safety testing is required until a problem is identified. By then the damage has been done, It seems they would rather pay for lawsuits than for testing trials. This is a $60 billion dollar industry, where these powerful corporations enjoy this freedom. We are basically human guinea pigs for these products containing ingredients that scientific studies indicate could be linked to cancer, reproductive harm, and neurotoxicity.

You may worry that a beauty detox will be expensive, but it can actually save you money.

This is especially true if you are interested in making your own products, but even if you’re not you can make some significant changes without breaking the bank. As with any products, some are more expensive than others, of course!

Detox your Beauty Routine in Five Quick Steps 

1.  Replace your face wash with an oil.

Yes, an oil. This will also replace your makeup remover, as the oil easily dissolves cosmetics, even mascara.  My skin has never looked better since I made this change. Fractionated Coconut oil is the perfect choice for this. It is odorless, non-greasy, won’t stain, has a long shelf life, and remains liquid at room temperature.

It is extremely versatile as well. I also use it as my go-to carrier oil for diluting essential oils, for taming crazy flyaway curls, and in my DIY beauty recipes.

2.  Replace your chemical laden toothpaste with a natural alternative.

There are so many natural pastes out there, but I really love tooth powders that incorporate clay. I have read that the clays can actually remineralize teeth, which seems like a stretch, but I figure it can’t hurt, anyway. If you are worried about the mouthfeel or taste bad at all. In fact, the one I am currently in love with contains peppermint essential oil, so it is minty and fresh like you would expect.

 

If you are worried about losing the whitening properties of your current toothpaste, I’ve got you covered! I am obsessed with my charcoal whitening powder! It works immediately and better than any whitening toothpaste or gel strips I have tried over the years. You have to be careful when using it because it can stain surfaces and clothing, and it is super gross looking mid brush, but the results are worth it. I use it three times per week. it’s a great way to avoid chemical whiteners and detox your beauty routine.

3. Swap an essential oil or an organic product for your current moisturizer. 

I have mature skin, so I am all about the anti-aging products! This made me worry that I would be missing out somehow if I switched from my chemical-laden favorites, but this proved to be an easy detox.

Thankfully I found that I didn’t have to give up the anti-aging properties of my past favorite products. Evening Primrose oil has natural anti-inflammatory, anti-aging properties, and is very affordable, and companies like BeautyCounter make some of my new favorite, all-natural products. I am currently obsessed with my brightening facial oil and eye cream.

 

4 . Use a chemical-free sunscreen.

If you haven’t seen recent articles, it turns out many of the most popular brands of commercial sunscreens contain chemicals that break down into toxic compounds when exposed to light and especially chlorine. Ironically, the chemicals cause skin cancer. Isn’t that we are trying to prevent? I use sunscreen every day (my meds make me extra sensitive) and am one of those moms who hoses my kid down with sunscreen before swimming or running around outdoors, so this information really freaks me out! Again, thankfully there are safe alternatives. I just wish I had sought them out sooner.

5. Upgrade your body Lotion.

 

I saved this one for last as it really is the most important if you consider how much surface area you cover with your moisturizer. I have super dry skin and am a moisturizer addict, so I shudder to think of the number of toxins I have absorbed over the years. Even the baby lotion I used on my daughter contains questionable ingredients. There are many natural options out there, but I am currently in love with Naked Bee Lotion. The lavender is my favorite!! I first discovered it at my sister in law’s house and was delighted when my husband found it at our local hardware store. I wanted to try the different scents, so I was happy to find it on Amazon as well.  They have an entire skin-care line, so I am sure I will be branching out to those products soon.

I am also loving my new citrus mimosa body butter! I have incredibly dry skin and this body butter is divine!

 

So as you can see, it’s pretty easy to detox your daily beauty routine by replacing the products you use most often with natural alternatives.

I hope you will find these tips helpful and easy to implement into your current routine.
