Air Fryer

How good are air fryers?

So I heard all these great things about air friers. A co-worker of mine said she loved hers and could make more foods in hers using less oil, making food more healthier. So being on Keto, I thought to myself, “I have got to try this!”. So I went out to my local BJ’s Wholesale and purchased the one pictured above. It was on sale for $60, which I thought was a good price.

Let me tell you! I came home and I made everything I could think of to make in there! First I started with frozen chicken wings that I had planned on making. Now you’re supposed to thaw them before you put them in there but my kids were STARVINGGGG (we all know this scenario). So I pre-heated it, got the bag out threw it in there, cooked it for 25 (give or take) minutes. MMMM, MMM, MMM! All I did was salt them a little bit and they were crispy and so yummy! They were soooo good. The next morning I made bacon. Then I made donuts (out of crescent rolls dough!) (Hint: Follow me on Pintrest to see the recipes I’ve saved for Keto & Air Fryers)

The ideas are endless! It is a quick dinner fix and I’m sure I’ll be able to team my AirFryer up with my Instant Pot!

Do you have an AirFryer? Would you consider getting one? What are you favorite recipes for your AirFryer? Leave a comment below.

Uber Eats

So again, we tried a delivery service, well, because quite frankly, after the holiday’s come and go and you’ve been cooking and cleaning nonstop, you want something a bit different for your pallet and you don’t feel like dealing with people or traffic or driving (or the cold). So we figured we would give Uber Eats a try. Firstly, you can save $5 off you’re first order. Then you pick which restaurant you want delivery from (and this varies by location. Not all restaurants are available (bummer!)). You decide what you’re going to eat, put in your payment information and Voila! Your order is on its way! You can choose to get push notifications to see at what stage your order is in, whether the kitchen is prepping it or your driver is driving it to you (which btw you can actually watch the little car drive on your screen so you know when its coming!). Super cool and definitely awesome for those lazy days. Now if only more restaurants become available on the app.

Instacart

So I tried Instacart for the first time today. Let’s see how it goes. I feel as though the prices seem higher than advertised in the store and I assume that is because of the fact that someone is driving to the store for me and the company has to make a profit somehow, right? So I placed an order at 9:38 am and it said I would receive my order between 10:40 and 11:40 am. I am eager to see how this works out. I have played with the idea of using Instacart in the past but could not get myself to pay the fees and increased prices. Today, however, I am left with no choice. I have no car, am working from home and NEED groceries for the upcoming holiday. So what better time to try it than now! I will post a future update of my order and satisfaction.  Have you used Instacart or a grocery delivery service in the past? Do you like it? Do you use regularly or only when absolutely needed?

If you’d like to give Instacart a try you can try it here and get $10 off your first order along with free delivery!

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION MAKES THEIR RECOMMENDATION: CBD SHOULD NOT BE A SCHEDULED DRUG

December 14, 2017 – After more than a month of deliberation, regarding the scheduling of cannabidiol, the World Health Organization announced their recommendation that CBD should not be subject to international drug scheduling. This is based on evidence related to the benefits and risks of CBD. You can read the entire article here.

I’ve also posted the WHO’s report on CBD oil.

WHO Research Report Regarding CBD

This could be a huge step towards legalizing marijuana both medically and recreationally in many states. In some states, CBD oil is even considered illegal. On the side you will see a few of my recommendations for CBD oil. My top 2 brands are Charlotte’s Web, which was featured on YouTube regarding a little girl having seizures. If you’ve never seen the video, you can see it here. And PureKana is my other recommended brand.

I know there is some controversy regarding CBD oil, medicinal and recreational use marijuana. Please be considerate of other people’s thoughts and views. We all walk different paths.
