Low Carb Life…

My weight-loss journey has certainly been a LONG journey, started well over 2 years ago.  I started on my own with just exercise and watching what I ate, I lost about 25 pounds on my own.  Last summer, running regularly and eating the good parts of the food pyramid, I started gaining weight and was confused, flustered, angry and depressed.  Instead of giving up, I talked with my family doctor who advised me to speak with some kind of specialist who lives a live style that is low in carbs.  What did I have to loose?  So, I went to see Dr. Leah, and she set me up on living Low Carb and it’s hard, every day is HARD, but it has been the most rewarding and educational journey I’ve ever been on!  She has taught me some amazing LIFE LONG skills that can keep this going for me forever!  What I enjoy most is I get to eat regular people food every single day.  I don’t have any special foods I have to buy from some specialized location, it’s normal grocery store food.  It doesn’t cost me any more than it did before, because frankly, I’m a teacher, I don’t have a whole lot extra to fork over.




Venison Enchiladas

About once a week I like to try a new recipe and I am so bad about modifying recipes and then NEVER writing down what I did, so this is the first attempt at my modification of a basic enchilada recipe.  My husband and brother had shot 2 deer this past fall and so our freezer is full of deer meat, ground, roasts, steaks, you name it, we have it.  I’ve been craving enchiladas and many recipes use chicken, but I wanted some venison on this cold winter evening in Fargo…uuugggh -30 below wind chills!!
