Happy Father's Day!
If you are a Dad in any capacity then I hope you are having a wonderful day!
Side note: You get bonus points for being a Dad who is into meal planning!
I am super fortunate to be surrounded by some pretty amazing Dad's myself. I don't think many of us really appreciate our parents until we become adults and parents ourselves.
It amazes me the lengths my Dad went to stay involved in my life, even though he lived a couple of hours away for the majority of my childhood.
He called me every single day without fail - a fact that I found super annoying at the time, but now cherish. Despite the distance, he was always at my school plays, birthdays and holidays.
When he was finally able to move to the same city as me, he volunteered to host countless sleepovers and never got too grouchy about it.
Not only is he a great father, but he is an amazing grandfather to my kids as well.
My husband has of course been an amazing Dad to our son's, but it really amazes me how he has stepped up to be a father to my oldest son, Eli.
Eli is not his biological son, but other then the fact that they look nothing alike, you really couldn't tell. After being a single mom for Eli's early years, I can't tell you what an amazing feeling it is to have an equal partner in raising him.
So all in all, I am pretty dang lucky and I hope that you are too 🙂
Besides being Father's Day, today also happens to be my youngest son, Lucas' birthday. He is turning four today and this equally makes me happy and breaks my heart all in the same moment.
I will share more about his birthday festivities and how we celebrated in next weeks post, so be sure to check back!
Last week, was another pretty successful week with keeping the kids away from sugar and excess carbs.
I am continuing to notice improved behavior, but I'm also noticing how difficult it is to keep them away from junk food. I REALLY wish that as a culture, we didn't feel the need to always be dosing up kids with sweets.
Next week, it's pretty much business as usual.
I've never cooked, or even eaten lamb chops to my knowledge - but I got some super cheap at Sam's Club Last week, so we are going to try them out. If you have any good recipes, let me know!
Here are links to all the recipes we will be using. I don't always have a recipe for everything, and sometimes our plans change throughout the week. I try to keep my "This Weeks Menu" Pinterest board up to date, so be sure to follow me there!
- Cheesy Pesto Chicken and Zoodles - I obviously sub the noodles for zoodles in this recipe. I also use pesto from Aldi, which had the lowest carbs of any packaged pesto I have found!
- Hamburger Steaks and Gravy
- The BEST ever Mashed Cauliflower
- Keto Alfredo Sauce
- Cheesy Meatball Bake
- Sausage Pancake Muffins
- Keto Banana Bread
- Almond Butter Mug Cakes
- Keto White Bread
- Fathead Pizza Rolls

So that's it!
