The Ketogenic Cookbook in Costco!
If you would have told me 10 years ago my life would be what it is now, I would have laughed and said, “don’t tease a girl like that!” The Ketogenic Cookbook has changed all of that.
10 years ago, my husband Craig was out of work, I worked at a non-profit camp making minimum wage. We could barely make our house payment, we sold our fancy cars, put our adoption on hold due to finances, our date nights were going to the library to rent a free movie and a game of scrabble. I started teaching yoga at a friend’s dance studio whenever it was empty and she wasn’t using it to teach dance lessons. We even put our house up for sale but it was the downturn of the housing market (if you too suffered through the housing market crash watch the movie The Big Short, it was quite eye opening!)
We stopped spending money going out to eat and started cooking at home (which was great for weight loss as well as saving money). I also started writing a book about nutrition as well as writing recipes. Never thinking anything would come of it. All of these hardships formed what I am today.
A few years ago, I was blessed to be-friend Jimmy Moore (of Livin’ La Vida Low Carb) and spoke on his fantastic Low Carb Cruise. After that Jimmy asked me to work on a cookbook with him and I am so grateful to him in my life!
I never knew what was in store for me. The publisher Victory Belt is not just a regular publisher. Their team is so amazing and they put out the most beautiful books! The Ketogenic Cookbook is my first book published with Victory Belt and it is selling so well, COSTCO will now be carrying in all of their stores as well as feature it in their flyer!
I would be so honored if you see it in your local Costco to tag me in a photo of you with it! On facebook or instagram or twitter. Help spread the work of health!
I am grateful for the struggles I have endured. Don’t get me wrong, there are still very difficult days… there are days it seems like the boys are fighting all day, business struggles, not to mention we home school which throws another level of complexity into our life. There’s also the days where someone writes a terribly mean comments on social media, which comes the territory. But I think with the difficult times Craig and I have been through, we choose joy. We choose to be grateful for what we have been given and grateful we have a job that can help put so much joy back into peoples lives. Craig often says when he is making breakfast for the boys and they are fighting and he gets frustrated, he just turns on the radio to listen to the traffic report! Then he is grateful for getting to work from home and teach the boys instead of driving the 60 miles to work like he once had to do.
I want to take the time to say thank you to you, my readers. Without you my life would look very different. Thank you all so much for your love and support!
Make today special! Treat yourself with honor!
