Crab Louie Salad

Crab Louie salad

Funny story, I ordered a Crab Louie salad at a some-what upscale restaurant in Hawaii, assuming that lit would have REAL crab…nope! Imitation crab! YUCK!

 I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in a few weeks. Sometimes I wonder if anyone reads it anyway. But if you do, I apologize and want you to know that I have been exploring nature with my boys; swimming, kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding, biking and I took them on their first tent camping adventure!

All keto…. of-course!

    What do you mean “I wonder if anyone reads it anyway”? Of course we do! Always love getting the blog posting. Keeps me motivated, gives me new ideas. Thanks for blogging and enjoy these beautiful summer days with your family

  • jean says:

    I couldn’t agree more with kellyj.

  • I need to get myself some dill pickles for this!

  • Linda says:

    Understandable that everyone is “out there” doing their summer thing, that’s what summers are all about 🙂 and thank you for sharing yours and showing us that you live and wonderful full, loving life. I appreciate your blogs, read them and am inspired.

    You didn’t lose weight for 6 month? Oh no! That’s my primary reason for going on this. You need a platinum membership to get this information on how to track using the meal planner???

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Most people (and many “Keto” blogs) make mistakes when doing Keto. That will hold back weight loss. My site makes it easy to follow taking out any guesswork. 🙂

  • Tyson Tate says:

    I just recently found this lifestyle and your blog and and bought your book and have lost 10lbs in 3 weeks and feel fantastic. Though getting off sugar and into ketosis that 1st week almost landed me in jail for assault. Seriously though, you are seriously amazing and thank you for all the great info and recipes. Very inspiring. As a homeschooling mom in Milwaukee, I can say…. I.AM.READING.IT! Plus,,, no one should blog as much in the summer. That should be like a rule on the internet or something. If you’re a keto blogger and you’re in front of the screen everyday, then you ain’t living the example. Plenty more future cold weather coming. :>) Thanks again!

  • Stacy says:

    Of course we read! So happy you are back. Sounds like you all are having a lovely summer so far

  • Marybeth Nedley says:

    I read you every Instagram every newsletter I get so you’ve been read for sure! Welcome back! 🙌🙌🙌🙌

    I am trying, for the third time to post a comment, keep getting errors, but don’t know what I am missing as the fields under the Post A Comment field do not show the required elements.

  • KathyC says:

    Wow, finally succeeded by guessing at the fields under the Post a comment section, so the first is name, the second is email and the third is email. At any rate, as a newbie to this world, this is the first blog I have seen; please continue posting. I have purchased two of your cookbooks and tried three recipes, two very successful, but failed miserably on the mayo recipe; not sure if I have the right immersion blender. At any rate, please know that your blogs are read, even if you do not think so.

  • Cyndi says:

    Of course I read your blog! What a thought!

    You’re having a series of in-depth “experience” counseling sessions with your two top clients–nothing whatsoever wrong with that! That’s how memories are made. I signed up for your mailing list to act as an alert when you posted something again.

    YES, WE READ YOUR BLOG, AND HANG ON EVERY RECIPE!!! But we realize that you’re a mom now, with numerous priorities, and only two arms….and school’s out (oh wait–you home-school, don’t you?).

    So what have you got cookin’ for July 4th this year?

  • Pam Harrell says:

    I enjoy seeing your email posts!! Eating keto for a year and a half and loving it. Not sure how you do what you do being a mom, blogger, home school, and tend to your clients. Thank you for all you do. You know what I was thinking the other day…..I wish you were my doctor. MD’s look at you like your crazy! Ha

  • I’ve never heard of a crab louie salad. Sounds good though! I hope you’ve been enjoying nature!

  • Eliz~ says:

    uh- yeah we are reading!! LOL!!

  • Renee says:

    Yes!! We read!!

    I read your blog while I eat lunch at my desk. The pictures keep me inspired and helps me stick to this!

  • Chris Houck says:

    I read your blog! Please don’t stop – where else will I get all these wonderful recipes, hear your fantastic inspirational stories, and just generally enjoy everything I read on it. Thank you for your blog!

  • Mira says:

    You even have a reader and fan in Belgium 😉

  • Cathy says:

    I made this salad today for my family. It’s really good! The dressing is enough for two salads, which is good because the pot of cooked real crabmeat from Costco is one pound or about 450 grams. That rations into two salads-worth. I can make it again tomorrow and use the dressing from today.

    My wife is allergic to eggs. Are egg beaters suitable?
