Thank you for all the prayers and kind words. Yesterday was all about family time, which also meant lots of play time in the kitchen. Whenever Lori and I are together the family knows we always make a MESS as we are cooking up something.

We both took the weekend off from working out and just embraced life. Every breath was a prayer to God. We are taking one day at time.

coffee and banana

Coffee and bananas to start the day.

coconut water

We ran out of some baking ingredients, so headed up to the local health food store and picked up a coconut water.


Before baking, we enjoyed some eggs scrambled with leftover fish (cod and salmon), sauerkraut, brussel sprouts and coconut oil.


We were determined to get an egg-free version of our protein low sugar birthday cupcakes.

another cupcake

We had 2 failure recipes on Saturday, and so far yesterday’s were slowly looking better.

kale chips

Took a break from eating cupcakes and enjoyed kale chips! It has been MONTHS since we had some, so good!


We are trying out a new probiotic –Ultimate Flora. The lovely people at Renew Life sent us some to review. We have shared our favorite brands of probiotic before, so excited to try these out. We know these two girls love them.

lori and joy

A little swim time with Joy!

cupcake bite

Okay back to cupcake baking.

Recipe getting closer!!

final one

We did it! We think we have the recipe for an egg-free protein low sugar cupcake!

After eating this one we both said we are tired of eating cupcakes!! haha never thought we would say that


Dinner with the family! We enjoyed a plate of raw spiralized zucchini with grilled peppers, sauerkraut, avocado and scallops topped with coconut oil.  We also enjoyed a few glasses of wine with our dinner.


After more play time with our niece it was time for dessert.


cupcakes frosted

Egg-free protein cookie dough cupcakes with cashew frosting!


Before bed we enjoyed the last few cupcakes with chocolate coconut oil sauce on top.  YUM!

We promise we are sharing this recipe, we have to make more cupcakes as we ate them all 😉  oh darn

  2. Those desserts look amazing (as always!). I love that brand of kale chips (one of my favorites), I know this may seem like an odd combination, but they make a chocolate kale chip which is amazing! Best wishes 🙂
