Bubbies Pickles

Sometimes the reduced carb lifestyle seems to present some annoying restrictions.  Condiments and sides can prove to be especially annoyingly packed with things we’re trying to avoid – like sugar.

Enter Bubbies Pickles.  First of all, you’ll have to forgive them for not properly punctuating the (presumably) possessive form of Bubbie.  But nevermind that…  These pickles are FANTASTIC – specifically the Kosher Dills.  Plus they have essentially zero carbs.

Check out the ingredients list.  No sugar – and pretty much stuff you’d find in your house.  The bonus is that these pickles are fermented so they’ll help to populate your gut with beneficial microbes.  As more and more research (as well as age-old wisdom) seems to indicate, a happy and healthy gut is essential for a healthy mind and body.

Have You Tried Ghee?

You see, dairy and I just don’t get on very well. I guess it’s true what they say about cow’s milk being for baby cows and not humans! While shopping yesterday we found this little jar of delicious on sale. Who can turn down ghee… ON SALE? Obviously,  not me!

Now, we make our own ghee. But when folks ask, I like to be able to ( with a straight face) sing the praises of brands you can get in your local markets. Eat Good Fat’s Ghee gets lots of singing. When I opened the jar my olfactory nerves were literally jumping for joy. That irresistible smell of melting butter hit my nose and, oh the happiness! I couldn’t wait to taste it and when I did I wasn’t disappointed. It’s rich and buttery and extremely satisfying. (If product images don’t appear, please disable your ad blocker – at least for CoachLoli.com.)

Amazon doesn’t currently carry Eat Good Fat but we can recommend:

We also use and are very happy with Ghee by 4th & Heart. The Vanilla Bean ghee is incredible if you like buttered coffee!
