Going Back to College

20 years ago, I set foot into my first college classroom. I absolutely loved it. With a high school campus that now has three high schools and an athletic building that the students travel between them all, the size of college was nothing to me. When I graduated with my Bachelors degree, the plan was to go immediately back and get my masters. However, being pregnant with my second child (and sick EVERY single day, all day long), chasing a two year around, and having a husband that traveled for work, life just got in the way. Finally, 20 years later, I am going back to college to get that masters. Only it will be for a totally different degree than what I planned back then!

I graduated in 2004 from Eastern Michigan University with my Bachelors of Science degree and a teaching certificate for the state of Michigan. Unfortunately, at that time, there was a surplus of teachers. When applying for jobs, my application ended up being one of 3000 for ONE position. It was nuts. If I was willing to relocate, I could get a job in another state that recognized my Michigan teaching certificate. However, relocating was not an option. I did some long term sub jobs and then decided to go back to college to get my Masters.

The Decision to Go Back to College

For the last 15 years, I have been a stay at home mom. It was important to my husband and I that I be home with the kids. Both of us grew up with our mother home…it’s what we knew, so we sacrificed and made it work. Now, fast forward 15 years. I have a son just starting high school and a daughter just starting middle school. In three and a half years, my son will be in college and three years after that, my daughter will be in college…and then what? What do I do?

Call it a mid-life crisis or whatever you want, but I have been really freaking out about the thought of my kids going back to college and me not having held a job in YEARS. How is that resume going to look? What jobs would I even be qualified for? I can’t tell you how many times I texted my husband, in freak out mode, about not being able to get a job in the future. Then one day I mentioned something about going back to college and the rest they say, is history!

What Should I Get my Masters for?

When I was going to get my Masters after I finished my Bachelors degree, I was going to get a Masters in early childhood education. Having my teaching certificate, it just made sense to do that. Now, at this point in my life, I don’t plan on teaching in a classroom. So I started thinking about the things I was interested in and would love to do. Only ONE thing stood out. Librarian. Library’s are my happy place. To be honest, working in a library has always been a dream of mine. So Masters in Library Science it is!

So Now What?

I have figured out what I want to do, but how do I go about it? Currently, I am researching various online programs and requesting information. I’m not quite sure which online program I am going to go with just yet, but one thing I do know is that a lot of the programs require GRE test scores. So I picked up a few books, school supplies (love school supplies!!) and I will start studying and getting my brain trained to do math again. That should be fun!

After doing a Google search, and talking with friends, the above two books were recommended the most as THE books to get to prepare for the GRE test.

I’m excited about the future and what it may bring. Of course I am nervous. I will be doing this degree online. We have one University near me that offers the program. I’m not quite sure if I will be going with that program, or another recommended program. However, I have plenty of time to decide that.

Wish me luck!


Creamy Cauliflower Andouille Soup

One of my favorite soups ever is baked potato soup. However, it’s not Keto friendly and it’s not gluten free. So I don’t eat it anymore. Or so I thought! This weekend, I made a Keto soup that tasted VERY similar to baked potato soup. I’ve said before that the Keto Chorizo Chicken Soup Recipe was my favorite Keto soup. Now, I’m not so sure! This creamy cauliflower andouille soup is Keto approved AND it tastes very much like my old favorite potato soup recipe! Total win-win!

You guys!!!! I cannot tell you  how good this soup is! It smelled amazing while I was cooking it. Not once did I ever think that it would remind me of baked potato soup, but it totally does! If you’re thinking, “eww…cooked cauliflower smells so gross. I don’t think I can eat this”….stop thinking that! It is so good!

Creamy Cauliflower Andouille Soup Tips

I will definitely be making this soup again. Next time I plan on doing the following things:

  • Adding MORE spinach
  • Changing up the type of meat in the soup
  • Adding a little bit of garlic powder

Tips aside, the soup, as is, was so good and tasted great reheated the next day. Be aware that it will separate some in the fridge. Simply stir and it will be just fine!

Keto Macros

As always, be sure to figure out your macros with the specific ingredients that you use. I’m sure there are different brands of andouille sausage at the store. The nutritional information may not be the same for them both. With the ingredients I used, these are the macros:

If you have any questions about the Keto diet, please don’t hesitate to ask. What I would hate for you to do is listen to all that nonsense and inaccurate information that Jillian Michaels is spewing about Keto. She has no clue what she is talking about.

Don’t Forget to Pin it!

Dear Jillian Michaels

This week, Jillian Michaels decided to publicly shame the Keto diet and everyone that follows that lifestyle. With comments like, “Your cells, your macro molecules, are literally made up of protein, fat, carbohydrates, nucleic acids. When you do not eat one of the three macro nutrients — those three things I just mentioned — you’re starving yourselves“, it makes me wonder if Jillian Michaels even knows what the Keto diet is. Does she even know what a carbohydrate is?

What is the Keto Diet?

First things first, what is the Keto diet? Simply put, the Keto diet is diet made up of high fat, moderate protein and very low carb. Now, before you start asking questions, when I say, “high fat”, I am not telling you to just sit around and eat a stick of butter all day or loads of bacon. That’s the number one misconception of this diet. You want to eat high amounts of healthy fats. By eating this way, your body will switch from using glucose as its fuel source, to using fat. When your body starts burning fat, it’s called Ketosis (do NOT mistake this for Ketoacidosis).

So How Low do the Carbs Go?

To get your body into Ketosis, you need to stay under 50 grams of carbs a day. Most people on the Keto diet stay around 20 grams of carbs a day. For me, I stick to 20 grams of carbs a day and 99% of my carbohydrates in a day come from vegetables. So let’s look back at Jillian Michaels statement above. She refers to the Keto diet as not being healthy and then explains that when we don’t eat one of the macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein, and fat) our bodies need, then we are starving our body. Now I am following the Keto diet and 99% of my carbohydrate intake in a day comes from vegetables, how can she claim that people on a Keto diet are not consuming one of the needed macronutrients? Not to mention, just in the mere description for the Keto diet, it states that it is a high fat, moderate protein, low CARB diet. Therefore, people following the Keto diet are NOT eliminating one of the needed macronutrients.

My Problem with the Jillian Michaels Rant

On her blog, Jillian Michaels writes about the “truth” about Keto. For those of us that actually know about the Keto diet and follow people like Dr. Eric Berg (notice the Dr. before his name…), her post is laughably inaccurate and full of Keto misconceptions. Let’s deconstruct her post and point out all of her Keto misconceptions:

  1. The Keto Diet a.k.a. Atkins Diet… – right off the bat, Jillian has it wrong. The Keto diet is not also known as the Atkins Diet. While the induction phase of Atkins is similar to Keto, the overall Atkins diet is not the same.
  2. Ketosis is a considered a state of medical emergency – umm…where’s your proof? Oh right, you’re not a doctor.
  3. The next issue is that keto doesn’t advocate for calorie restriction – again, not sure where Ms. Michaels is getting her information, but every Keto site I have ever read said that if you want to lose weight, you need to lower your calories. And you do this TO LOSE WEIGHT. Jillian says people brag about “not dieting” or exercising. The thing is, everyone I know that follows Keto don’t really refer to it as a “diet” because it is a lifestyle change. As for the exercise part, a lot of people prefer to not have to exercise. So that statement is just stupid to me.
  4. The keto diet does not address what types of proteins and fats are ideal – seriously? I don’t know what sites she is checking out about the Keto diet, but again, if you check out the information Dr. Eric Berg has available, he is very clear about what are good proteins and fats to eat.
  5. Yes, protein is very good for you, but we don’t need tons of it and when we consume tons of it… – Keto is NOT a high protein diet. Seriously, Google Dr. Eric Berg. Just do it.

My Fitness by Jillian Michaels Annual Membership

Is this $69.99 a year fitness app that Jillian has available a huge reason she doesn’t like the Keto diet? Could it be that people following the Keto diet have no need for her app, therefore she is losing out on potential customers? Maybe, maybe not. I don’t know for sure, but from the outside looking in, that is my best guess. At the end of the day, while she may believe that misinformation out there about the Keto diet, I have my own experience and results to go by and the numbers don’t lie.

My Keto Experience

Keto has been a big part of my life for the last three years. Both my husband and I followed the Keto diet and made it a part of our life. Over the course of the last three years, my husband lost 125 pounds and I lost 90 pounds. Yes we exercised throughout that time period; yes we practiced calorie restriction; no we did not sit and eat buckets of lard or an entire cow in one sitting. We followed the factual information available online, as well as from our own doctor. We incorporated good fats into our diet and we successfully cut out sugar and grains and eliminated cravings. Once upon a time, I was a huge emotional eater. Not any longer. That is huge!

jillian michaels

Besides all of that, my cholesterol is now good and my triglycerides went from 300 to 66. You can’t argue with those numbers. I went from having to nap every single day at 3 pm to having so much energy. The times that I have consciously made the decision to eat something non-Keto, I have felt like crap after. So much so, I don’t make that decision very often. It’s not worth feeling groggy, swollen or bloated. Who wants to feel that way when you don’t have to?!?

Final Words to Jillian Michaels

While I used to enjoy watching you on The Biggest Loser, I now question it. What I know about the show now from various interviews from past contestants and what I know about living a healthy lifestyle, is so not what you promoted on that show. The contestants have stated that they practiced fat shaming from the trainers, exercise regimes that were merely for entertainment purposes, dehydration for weigh-ins, and essentially starving themselves by working out for 6-8 hours a day and only eating about 1000 calories a day. You supported those tactics, yet you have a problem with a lifestyle that has real doctors behind it giving scientific facts as to why Keto is good for us. In my eyes, that completely knocks out any credibility you may have had.

Credible Keto Sites

If you are looking to start the Keto diet, you need to tune out haters like Jillian Michaels. One of your biggest resources needs to include Dr. Eric Berg’s YouTube channel. Other sites I frequently visit are:

Diet Doctor

Ruled.Me

Caveman Keto

As always, do your own research. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask. While I am most definitely not a doctor, I have been following this lifestyle for the last three years. If I don’t know the answer, I will definitely help to point you in the right direction!


Oatmeal Banana Cinnamon Crunch Bread

My kids are notorious for leaving bananas on the counter so they get too ripe to eat, but are perfect for banana bread. I think…no…I know…they do it on purpose. In fact, just the other day my son asked me when I was planning on making banana bread. The bananas were NOT over-ripe just yet! He was planning ahead! Well, he’s in luck! Today I made a gluten free oatmeal banana cinnamon crunch bread. Not just one layer of crunch, but two yummy layers!

Oatmeal Banana Cinnamon Crunch Bread: Thumbs up or down?

Doesn’t it look great?!? The second both kids got in the door, they immediately asked for a piece. While I don’t particularly care for cinnamon, this gluten free oatmeal banana cinnamon crunch bread smelled amazing while it was baking! The kids said it was their favorite out of all the different types of banana breads I’ve made! Like I mentioned in the recipe, if you want to make this with regular milk, go ahead! Also, feel free to use regular flour instead of gluten free flour! Don’t forget to scroll all the way down to find my favorite banana bread/muffin recipes!

Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf Recipe

One of my goals for 2019, is to cook more. With as busy as we are with the kids and their school and sport schedules, something has to give. Typically, it’s cooking. One of my biggest mom guilts is how many meals my kids eat that are quick and easy, convenient meals (a.k.a. meals cooked in the microwave). While I know I won’t be able to cook a meal every night, I am going to try and cook a few times a week. Last night, I made this cheddar cheese stuffed meatloaf recipe and it was amazing! Definitely something I will be making again!

Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf Recipe

Delicious, Keto friendly recipe for cheddar cheese stuffed meatloaf!

Course Main Course
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings 8 People

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Ground Beef 80/20
  • 1 lb Hot Chorizo
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 TBSP Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 TBSP Onion Powder
  • 1/2 TBSP Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 6 oz Cheddar Cheese (or cheese of choice)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°. Prepare your loaf pan with cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, add all of your ingredients except for the cheese. Using your hands (because lets face it, using a spoon never works), mix everything together thoroughly.

  3. Take half of your meatloaf mixture and press it into the bottom of your loaf pan. Make a well for the block of cheese and place the cheese in the center. Add the remaining meatloaf mixture on top of the cheese and press the sides together. As you can see from the picture, I needed to do better at pressing one of the sides together!

  4. Bake in the oven for about 50-55 minutes. Check the center of your meatloaf with a meat thermometer. Internal temperature should be 165° F.

  5. Slice into 8 servings and enjoy!

When I made this cheddar cheese stuffed meatloaf recipe, I used my perfect meatloaf pancheddar cheese stuffed meatloaf. This pan makes getting your meatloaf out a breeze! I think I will pick up a pan to make a bunch of mini meatloaves! They are perfect to freeze and take out as needed! I ate a piece of the cheddar cheese stuffed meatloaf for breakfast this morning and it was even better reheated!

One thing I will try next time, differently than what I did this time, is that I won’t cut up the cheddar cheese first. I sliced the cheese and placed the slices in the center. Instead, I will place the entire block of cheddar cheese in the center. I think that will work out better than what I did. Shredded cheddar cheese is another good option. Just make sure to weigh in on your kitchen scale to make sure you get the appropriate amount!

How Was the Cheddar Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf Recipe?

In one word…amazing! Meatloaf is one of my favorite “comfort foods”. The addition of chorizo and cheddar cheese totally stepped this recipe up a notch. I plan on playing around with flavors in the future and using different meats and cheeses! Pair this with steamed green beans (like we did) or add my favorite Cauliflower Rice recipe and you have yourself a nice, Keto friendly meal!
