October 2019 | The Honest Spoon

I haven’t really talked about it much, but back in September I started the keto diet. To be honest, I also started in June but wasn’t really prepared for the long haul. I started right before a work trip followed by a two week family vacation to California. The timing couldn’t have been worse.

Why am I telling you this? Because I learned a lot about being prepared when I did it back in June. I’m better prepared now. I especially learned to have treats available for when I actually want them. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth- but when I do- watch out!

Want to hear the good news? Using the Carb Manager App each cookie has only ONE NET CARB!!! I know, I know… this is exciting!!!

Long story short. These are easy, fast and freeze well. Consider it a part of your meal prep!! I store these in the freezer and take one or two out and pack it with my lunch.
