Sharing the food I make, helps me stay on this Journey #GlutenFree #LowCarb #Keto #Lifestyle

Ive changed how I view, and consume the foods that enter my body. It's been a little over 3 weeks since I've been completely gluten free, and only carbs I mainly consume are in certain vegetables, and the occasional rice, green banana flour, and rice flour. I am down 20 Lbs, and I eat all the time. I don't count calories, I just make sure I get a healthy serving of fat, protein, and vegetables for healthier net carbs. What's helping me continue on this diet is sharing my food on Instagram, and on here. It's a motivational tool for myself. I also take B Complex, Womens Multi-Vitamins, and Cod Liver Oil, along with checking my ketones with Ketone Sticks.

I also like Salads with Feta, Olives, and Everythinggggggggg.  I do mix it up, sometimes I do Guac Salad, or Vingerette for a dressing.  Meat wise, I'd rather have shrimp, but I was craving some Bratwurst too. Since my breakfast was pretty light, I had the bratwurst to go with my Shrimp and Greens Salad.

You had me at No Artificial anything! @ReedsGingerBrew #Review #GlutenFree #PreservativeFree #CaffeineFree #Sodas #Spon

Aren't all the colors of the Brews beautiful? Colas, Cream Sodas, Root Beers, and even Ginger Beer (Ale.)


I'm truly amazed by REED's Inc.  with all of their Brews being GMO Free, Preservative Free, Caffeine Free, and with No Artificial anything while still maintaining a great taste of fresh ingredients, and the carbonation is to die for.  When I am craving a Soda, it's that carbonation, and mix of Flavors that I want.  The first Soda I wanted to try was the Zero Root Beer that has No Calories!!  It was delicious, and hit the spot I was looking for.  Something Sweet while the foam was perfect on top! I then tried the Jamaican Style Ginger Beer (Ale) and was blown away by the spices.  These are how Sodas were meant to be Brewed.  

With detail to Flavor like that I completely can taste why each beverage tastes as strong, and smooth as they do. "Virgil's made naturally for the soft drink connoisseur originally Virgil's was one man's passion to create the finest root beer ever produced.  After retiring from a very successful career in the beverage industry, Ed Crowly set out to research making his root beer. As a result of his research Ed developed the recipe for Virgil's Root Beer.  Recipe in hand, his search for the finest ingredients took him around the world.  The results are three NASFT awards for Virgil's Root Beer the highest ever for a beverage. When Ed retired, Reed's Inc. took over the company and has added cream sodas, and colas worthy of Ed's pioneering efforts all made naturally without caffeine or preservatives.  Reed’s Inc. was started in 1989 by Chris Reed. His research into the history of sodas found soft drink recipes from before the beginning of the modern soft drinks industry… He found that back in the early log cabin days, the pioneers couldn’t go to the store and buy soft drinks, they brewed their own sodas. They didn’t make them the way modern commercial soft drinks are made, even the so called natural ones. They brewed them in their kitchens, directly from roots, spices and fruits. These early soft drinks, besides being natural and delicious, were also healthy. Many folk used them as herbal tonics." Read more about Reed's Inc. Brews here, http://reedsinc.com/
