As we move into the holidays, I want to talk a bit about self-care and encouraging you to make time for yourself. Fresh air and sunshine are food. They nurture our body and soul. Being out in nature connects us with our spiritual side, reunites us with Mother Earth, gives us peace and quiet, leaves […]
November is National Diabetes Awareness Month here in the US. Each day this month, I will be bringing you tidbits of information to help you discover what diabetes is, what you can do to help prevent it, and what folks who have already been diagnosed can do to begin their journey toward reversing the disease.

At the Treehouse, we have replaced pasta for these cheese ‘noodles’. They make a great side dish or the perfect base for your favorite pasta sauce. Once you make them, I’d love to know what you think. Drop me a comment and let me know!
‘Just Like the Real Thing’ Lasagna Noodles from Craveable Keto Cookbook by Kyndra D. Holley
4 ounces full-fat cream cheese (1/2 cup) softened
2 large eggs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer (I use a KitchenAid), cream the cream cheese and eggs.
Add the Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder to the bowl. Stir until the ingredients are well combined.
Using a rubber spatula (again, I just use the KitchenAid on Stir), fold in the mozzarella cheese until well incorporated. Spread the mixture in the baking dish, forming a nice even layer.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and firm.
When the ‘noodles’ are done baking, place in the fridge to cool for about 20 minutes (I let them cool on the counter), then cut the noodles crosswise into thirds (or whatever size you would like). These makes three perfectly sized layers for an 8 1/2 by 4 1/2-inch loaf pan.
I started my keto journey because my triglycerides were high, my HDL was low, and nothing I was doing was improving them. Over the past year, I have seen and felt many changes. My joints no longer hurt. My back, arms, face, shoulders, thighs, hips, & stomach all appear to be leaner and more toned […]
