Lately I have been feeling pretty homesick for my home town of Charleston, SC.
4. When it just gets too much call and talk to the people at home. If there is a certain product you just cannot get anywhere else ask them to send it to you.
When we began this crazy army life, our plan was to go into the National Guard stay in South Carolina and be there forever... 3 years later, of course that is not where we ended up because, well Army. I went to graduate school, got a degree in marriage and family counseling, my husband opted out of the guard and went Active Duty.
I have not posted in a while because (I have been pretty busy!) and I have been trying to figure out exactly what I want the focus of this blog to be. I have a lot of things I am interested in and passionate about: cooking, family life, army life, my dog, Christ, mental health field, fashion and style, and attempting to live a healthy life style. But how do I choose just one and have something to consistently write about.
So sometimes I think the Army gives their soldiers body image complexes, forget about the gymnast and the dancers. Soldiers also have strict body regulations that they must make sure to maintain in order to keep in line: height, weight, and random other measurements such as the circumference of their neck. As such the hubby and I (well not so much me) eat on a pretty healthy and for the most part carb free diet.
I have a sweet tooth that can never be satisfied, i love rolls, biscuits, potatoes, basically all foods. This is not helpful when trying to maintain a low carb diet. So I have been on a quest to find delicious chocolate chip cookies and fudgey brownies, and other low carb substitutions like cauliflower "risotto", "rice", and mashed "potatoes."
I think the biggest success has been the sweets because that is what I crave the most! SO if youre looking for great low carb alternatives that are tested and approved by a person with the largest sweet tooth I have ever met than try these!
