Hey, Keto friends!
My name is Christa and welcome to Keto Cravings! You have landed in the right place and I am so happy that I can be of service to you on your Keto journey!
I live in a beautiful small town in Northern California where, together, my husband and I are raising 4 rambunctious boys! Between school, sports, and work...life keeps me busy! There is definitely never a dull moment...
My grandmother and mother taught me how to bake when I was a little girl. I loved being in the kitchen with them but what I loved, even more, was eating whatever we made! I grew up with such a sweet-tooth and as I grew it caught up with me, unfortunately.
In my early 30’s, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. During 3 of my pregnancies, it was medically necessary for me to take 3-4 daily injections of insulin for the health of not only myself but my children. It wasn’t until my early 40’s that a friend of my husband’s told us that he had been doing the Keto lifestyle for over a year. He had lost 40+ pounds and he knew that, as a diabetic, this lifestyle could change my life.
In February 2018 my husband and I decided to take the plunge. We spoke to our doctors to make sure we were on the right path and with the green-light, we went for it and have never looked back! At the start of my journey, my A1C levels were embarrassingly high and topped out at 10.2%. After losing about 20 pounds, my A1C level is now 5.7%!!! I have been able to get off of 2 of my 3 diabetic medications and I cannot tell you how amazing that feels!
After the encouragement of my family and friends, I am baking my Keto buns off for...YOU! Don’t feel like you can’t have something sweet to start or end your day with but the key, as is with everything in life, is to not over-indulge. With my low-carb, no-sugar baked goods you can start or end your day knowing that you can keep your insulin levels even while still maintaining the healthy lifestyle you strive for!
So, sit. Stay awhile. Take a look at my pictures and menu items. I promise you are going to love them!
