Highkey for the Holidays

 Hi All,

Many of you are aware that I am diabetic.  I was diagnosed about 10 years ago and have thus far controlled it through diet.  I get so excited when I find products that are designed to be low carb or Keto.  This allows me to expand what I can eat, or even have as snacks.  I have been waiting for my Highkey products to arrive.  I wanted to get this post up right away, so we have not actually used the baking products yet.  I immediately tried the Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies.  They are in a 2.25 oz. bag that contains approximately 2 servings.  Now, many times "special" foods do not taste the greatest, but these cookies are good! Even my husband liked them.  He finished off the few I left in the bag. 


FOMO NO MO' and yes, I had to look it up! Apparently foam means fear of missing out. Now because of Highkey, I don't have to worry about missing out on great test.

I also have their Highkey Protein Cereal in Cocoa flavor.  Just about anything chocolate is good! The cereal is Keto friendly with 0g net carbs. You get 10g of protein, 5g of fat, and it is gluten and grain free.


We will be trying two of the Keto baking mixes soon. One is Keto Muffin and Cupcake Baking Mix, Blueberry flavored and the other is Bread and Muffin Mix Cornbread flavored.  Each of these is also Keto of course! I will let you know how they are after I get a chance to try them out. Between holiday shopping, decorating and having a litter of pups here, we have been super busy.  But, baking is starting soon!!

So, if you know someone who is on a Keto diet, or who is diabetic and eating low carb, consider picking up a few of the Highkey Keto snacks.  You could make a gift basket and throw in a muffin tin, apron, mixing spoons or a movie for watching while snacking one night.  You might even use a large mixing bowl instead of a basket!

Thanks again for stopping by! Check out our other Holiday reviews, by clicking the tab for our gift guid at the top of the page.  See you soon!!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
