So I made it to day 4 of my diet. My doctor told me to eat zero carbs and a lot of protien. It was by no means easy at all but, I’m so proud of myself and the lifestyle change I’ve made. Today I am allowed to eat 20 carbs at most. Going form zero carbs to 20 carbs is actually a little overwhelming. I have no desire to eat carbs and now I can eat 20! I did a little on line shopping for low carb breads , bars , and candy and I can’t wait for my order to come in !
Even though it’s a Monday , it’s still nice to unwind with a guilt free cocktail.
I love adding floral flavors like Lavender, Jasmine , and Orange Blossom to this cocktail. The citrus from the lime and the floral fragrance from the extracts makes this the most relaxing cocktail ever!
1 shot of vodka 1/2 cup soda water 2 limes *add extract if desired

Get creative! Buy produce that can be used in multiple ways. For example , I love ground turckey. I make burgers, taco meat, meatballs all from ground turkey which will be a key part of my everyday diet. Stick with 2 proteins 3 veggie and 1 fruit verity a week.
Finding a new way to get groceries can be exciting and potentially more economical. I buy some of my groceries online and occasionally I go to the farmers market. Most of my produce comes from my local grocery store. It’s ok to not always eat organic , I rarely do!
