Pumpkin Pie Gummies
I always loved a gummy bear, gummy worm or any type of gummy candy so I thought to put a twist on a keto gummy and make a pumpkin pie gummy recipe!
I met the kind owner of Further Foods at KetoCon this past summer and she asked what products I would like to see her make in the future and I suggested a gelatin that I can make gummies with! Last week she sent me a container of her new organic gelatin and the boys and I started making delicious healthy keto gummies!

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
“I wanted to share my story, and how Maria and Craig have changed my life.
After 4 years of having no answers and suffering daily with pain and neurological issues, I was diagnosed with Chronic Late State Lyme disease in 2009. I was so sick at that point, I could not even walk and was in a wheelchair. I was prescribed high doses of antibiotics as well as anti-inflammatory medications, nerve pain medication, inhalers, and the list goes on. I was taking to many medications that I actually had to create a spreadsheet to keep everything straight. I was becoming a shell of the person I used to be. After years of dealing with the side effects of all the medications, the weight gain, and just feeling miserable every day, I decided to start looking into what I could do more naturally to help my body. I did try a no sugar and no white flour eating plan that was recommended by one of my doctors; which provided minimal relief. Things came to a head March 14, 2017, when I experienced a mild stroke.
I was very fortunate that I obtained medical treatment quickly which led to a full recovery. However, while I was in the hospital for my stroke, my neurologist said he wanted me to change my eating to eliminate not only sugar and white flour, but wheat – actually, all grains. At first I was resistant as I had never seen any impressive results by eliminating the sugar and white flour; so now I would just be hungry and miserable right? I started off without much assistance the first 2 weeks, except that I was to eat “Wheat Belly” according to the doctor. So I did research and tried my best. After a couple months of trying to figure this all out on my own I came across a post a friend shared on Facebook, and it was a link to a recipe on the Keto-adapted site. This moment was life changing!
I tried the recipe and it was delicious! And I was actually allowed to eat everything that was listed in the ingredients. This is when I went on to Amazon and bought my first keto cookbook….Quick and Easy Ketogenic Cooking, by Maria! I loved the cookbook and the recipe so much, that I started really engaging with the Facebook page and blog, and bought more of Maria’s cookbooks! Transitioning to a keto lifestyle impacted me and my family and ways I could never imagine. I had been very outgoing and active with my family prior to me getting ill; but that all had changed and I was run down and sick and tired all the time. Now, using the keto recipes, I was not only losing weight and feeling better, I had so much more energy! I have 5 grown daughters and 8 grandchildren (I am 52) and it was like I was brought back to life for them again.
This works! My pain level is zero most days (which is awesome), I have minimal neurological issues that keep getting better, I have no digestive issues, and I am off ALL meds!! Yes, off ALL Lyme meds! I cannot thank Maria enough for giving me my life back. I never thought I would ever be able to wake up and say I feel good. I never thought I would be bike riding and doing Zumba and going so many places with my family again. I still have a lot to learn, and my goal is to take some of the keto courses. I actually have three family members who also now are transitioning to a keto lifestyle. I am so grateful for what Maria and Craig do for others! . PS…I am not cured of Lyme, but managing it at a level I never thought possible!! I look forward to meeting Maria in December in Ann Arbor so I can thank her in person.
