The best Charcuterie Board & Salad Bowl EVER!

A charcuterie board is a perfect dinner for someone who is following a low carb lifestyle like keto.  It’s a platter of meats and cheeses that are paired together in flavorful combinations. Tonight I chose Margherita Genoa Salami, Smoked Gouda and Bacon Jalapeno and a Chipotle Jack cheese. On the side a mixed green chopped salad with skinless chicken thighs, sweet potato, and strawberries. I incorporated a glass of Zinfandel as a special treat for the hubby.  What’s on your at home charcuterie board?


2 Year Surgiversary

THE STRUGGLE ENDS WHEN GRATITUDE BEGINS!!! Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it. Life happened about 7 years after lap-band surgery and I regained weight. While in my opinion,  I looked OK I felt REALLY bad. My response was to have weight loss revision surgery specifically, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery performed on October 3, 2016. This surgery involves removing 80% of your stomach. That may not be your thing but it’s what helped me! Cheers to 2 years and 93 pounds down.Screen Shot 2018-10-14 at 12.58.34 PM
