How to Cook for Two, When Only One of you is Low Carb

Lately, I have been on a mission to cook food at home instead of going out. It’s cheaper, I really like cooking, and it can be way better for you.

However, going out works better for me and my boyfriend because we have two very different diets. I am on Ideal Protein – a high protein, low carb/fat diet…my boyfriend on the other hands eats all the carbs!

So, when it comes to meal planning for the week I have been trying really hard to find meals that can serve double duty. It has been a challenge and I thought I would share it with everyone since I am sure some of you out there might be having the same problem. Here are the recipes I have been working with lately!

Come Shop with Me: Sam’s Club

I love me a good ol’ Sam’s Club shop! I have had a Sam’s Club Membership for as long as I can remember, whether it was my parent’s membership or mine, and I think its 100% worth it.

As long as you have room in your home, I think buying in bulk is the way to go! I save tons of money on many of the items I routinely buy at Sam’s..and for some of these “routinely” means 1-2 per year!

So, I thought I would share with you some of the items I get when I take a trip to Sam’s! That way you can decide for yourself whether membership to a wholesale club is right for you.

What’s In My Bag: Yoga Edition

I have been doing a lot of yoga lately! Over the past few months, I have found a new love for flow and hot yoga that I never thought I would have! I go to a great studio that is super welcoming, with great instructors – and I think that is half the battle! Thanks, Sol Yoga! 🙂 Also, yoga is a great compliment to the runs I have been training for. I am forced to stretch things out whether I want to or not!

You don’t need a lot of things to start a yoga practice – the bare minimum is a mat. But, over the past few months, I have found a few things that really help me when I go to the studio. So, come along as we explore What’s In My (Yoga) Bag!
