I have to admit this post comes from me watching Iliza Shlesinger on Netflix.

PUMPKIN EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!

Fall is in the air, I am a girl... I love fall and well even Starbucks is bringing back the Pumpkin Spice Latte EARLY in 2018, this year.

As a #KetosisMom or well a Mom in general, I am OFTEN at Target. How many times do you find yourself in Target smelling the sweet smells of Starbucks and get tempted to go over and try to ask the barista (with the worst attitude) "What could you make that is Keto or Low carb?" You normally get a BLANK STARE or sometimes an EYE ROLL which then sets the tone for the rest of your day. 

The best advice I can give you. MAKE AND TAKE your OWN! These two items below are DELICIOUS. Trust me!

Both of these recipes are Logged into MyfitnessPal for you already! Just find it & log it, simple! Grab your Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING  to go Mug and beat the Starbucks Carb monster!
