Low Carb Stuffed Peppers


This is the recipe I used excepts I used a pound of pork sausage instead of ground beef, a can of diced tomatoes with onion, cilantro, and chilies instead of the tomato. I LOVED IT!!

Hello, I AM BACK!!!

  I know it has been a while since I have posted on my blog but a lot has happened in the last year.   My husband and I went though a divorce.   He fought for custody of the kids and won.   Not my happiest moment.  I have got to see my kids a lot this summer and now since school will be starting won't get to see them much:(  

  I was featured in the January 28th issue of Woman's World Magazine and I also had a photo shoot with Atkins and will be featured in there new book that will be coming out in 2014.

 I have slowly gain 50lbs back and I am still smoking:( I have met a very nice man and we have been together for a year now.  It has been an emotional rollercoaster this last year but I am ready to get back on track to the Healthier, Happier New ME!!

  I started a challenge on my LC support group forum.  It started Wednesday.  The challenge is called MOVE which stands for Meat, Oil, Veggie, and Exercise.  No nuts, no dairy, no processed foods and no sweeteners of any kind.   Exercise 30minutes a day and 100oz of water a day.  I am doing better then I thought I would.   I CAN DO IT, I WILL DO IT!!!
