As you no doubt know by now, I’m a sucker for new ice cream recipes, and for this week’s mix, I used the new, addictively flavorful, Peanut Butter Bone Broth Powder from Ancient Nutrition…combined with their Chocolate Collagen for frozen chocolate-peanut butter mouthwatering goodness. My Peanut-Butter-Chocolate Keto Ice Cream recipe is as follows:
Mental illnesses affect 19% of the adult population, 46% of teenagers and 13% of children each year. People struggling with their mental health may be in your family, live next door, teach your children, work in the next cubicle or sit in the same church pew.
What Exactly is a Mental Illness
Showing individuals respect and acceptance removes a significant barrier to successfully coping with their illness. Having people see you as an individual and not as your illness can make the biggest difference for someone who is struggling with their mental health.
Advocating within our circles of influence helps ensure these individuals have the same rights and opportunities as other members of your church, school, and community.
Learning more about mental health allows us to provide helpful support to those affected in our families and communities.
This is just a shortlist of places I have found that have good keto options. If you are out and about and unable to make your own meal this list will help you find something. I will be updating this as I find more options.
Buffalo Wild Wings – traditional wings with Parmesan garlic sauce, naked tenders, or hamburger with no bun.
Five Guys– hamburger wrap or bowl with mayo, bacon, and lettuce.
When I stumble across a product that I love I just really want to spread the good word! I recently tried a few different products from Kiss My Keto and I was very impressed with the quality of these products. Kiss My Keto has a wonderful online store full of keto products for your low-carb, low-sugar diet and lifestyle. I recently gave their chocolate bars a try. Keep on reading for a special Kiss My Keto coupon code.
I placed an order for a couple of Kiss My Keto Chocolate Bars. I went with the Original flavor and Hazelnut bar. These (almost guilt-free) ketogenic chocolate bars are sugar-free and sweetened with stevia. Why do I say almost? Though they are sugar-free they still do have some calories that you need to be aware of! If you eat the entire bar of the original flavor that comes out to 380 calories… so don’t eat the entire bar in one day! What I like to do is enjoy the chocolate bars in thirds, which is the suggested serving size. One serving is 130 calories. You can see the macro breakdown below.
A 1-ounce serving of a bar will give you the following macros:
These delicious Kiss My Keto chocolate bars are specifically designed for anyone doing a keto diet AND you still want to enjoy your chocolate. We’re all human. And humans are prone to slip-ups. So why not make your slip-up keto?!
I’m a chocoholic and always crave something chocolatey at night. These bars are delicious and satisfy my craving. It has a very slight aftertaste, but is overall very good tasting! I will be purchasing again!
One of the most powerful things in the world is to be supported and believed in. Any measure of success I’ve achieved has been fueled by people who believed in me and supported my work. I think you can probably think of people who did the same for you.
Yesterday was Mother’s Day and I’m thinking about how my Mom did those things for me, my siblings, and many other people. She bought me books, encouraged my photography, drove me to countless activities.
What I encourage you to think about this week is two-fold. First, who are the people in your life who have supported, nurtured, and believed in you? This is a great week to reach out and thank them for the role they have played in your life. That expression of gratitude is a powerful thing for both people.
This also acts as a powerful journal prompt. Take some time over the next few days and write down some thoughts on the impact people have had on you through their love, support, and encouragement. Thinking about this offers great insight into why it meant so much and how you can do the same for others. Which leads me to the second challenge of the week.
Second is to consider how you can offer support to people you interact with. There are people in your life that are starving for someone to be a source of encouragement, a sounding board, and a guiding influence in his or her life.
One way to think about this kind of contribution is in the context of the Hero’s Journey. There’s a time in your life where someone acted as a guide for you, supporting and believing in your life and arc. While you’ll go through stages of the journey many times in life, recognize the final stage isReturn and Contribution.
Offering support, encouragement, and belief in someone can be done in a wide variety of ways. Being a parent, mentor or coach aren’t the only options for those who want to make an impact. Here are few ways to offer that belief and support to those around you this week
Share a note of encouragement via text, direct message, chat, video, or voice message.
Review someone’s work and offer suggestions or edits to improve it.
Schedule a short call with a co-worker to see how they’re doing.
Join a friend for a walk and talk about life outside of work or their work/interests outside of raising a family.
Send $5-10 to a creator you respect as a thank you for how her work impacts your life (to be clear this isn’t a veiled request for you to send me anything – but another creator you want to support).
There are so many ways for us to support each other. Sometimes it’s easy to think that nothing is going right, but by connecting directly with another person we’re cutting through the noise and the bad news to bring light to the life of someone else.
