My First Week on Keto

Before we start, I want to give a special shout out to Allen at Das Midnight Goose for being the first person to buy something from my Society 6 store! I really hope you enjoy the mug, Allen!

Did you know that if you buy any From Adie, with Love logo merch and tag me in a picture of it on social media I’ll give you a shout out on my blog? Amazing!


So… diet check in…

Let’s just do this.

Adie Does Keto

Oh, a special weekend post, because this is my blog and I can do what I want!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Losing weight isn’t something important to me. I’m cute, I’m smart, I’m funny, and my weight doesn’t affect any of those things. I’m goddamn charming, even at 210.

When people have asked me about losing weight, I cut back with the same retort every time, “I’d rather be fat and happy than skinny and miserable.” Continue reading “Adie Does Keto”

Q & Adie

IT’S Q & A TIME, WITCHES!

First of all, thank you all so much for your questions! I didn’t think I would get nearly so many questions and I’m really floored that you guys are so interested in my boring life lol! Thank you so much!

After I cut out the parts where I got distracted and stared blankly into space, the video ended up still being forty minutes long. So, I broke it into two videos you can watch at your leisure. Keep in mind, I filmed this on my laptop camera and edited it on the free Microsoft video editing software, so it’s not exactly super high quality… or the most flattering angle.

Fun Fact: I hate my voice, so the fact that I’m sharing this with you all is proof of my undying love for you.

Enjoy! Continue reading “Q & Adie”

Tasty Tuesday: Semi-Homemade Chocolate Croissant

I’m a cook and baker by birth. I come from a long line of women who spent hours in their kitchens, slaving over their stoves and ovens to provide their loved ones with delicious, homemade meals. It’s a tradition I am happy to uphold. If I love you, I feed you. Hell, if I even only mildly tolerate you, I feed you. If you’re going through a hard time and I don’t offer to bring you an ooey, gooey lasagna in an aluminum pan, I probably hate your guts.

And I love to eat. Thanksgiving is probably my second favorite holiday, because I love that Thanksgiving spread. Turkey, mashed potatoes, broccoli, rolls, all covered in gravy. Not to mention to cheese and crackers, and deviled eggs, and chips and dip put out to snack on while cooking the main course. And pie for dessert. Honestly, just give me the food and no one gets hurt.

Here’s the thing. I’m also really freaking lazy. Or maybe I’m not lazy and it’s just the depression sapping my will to put any effort into anything. Either or.

So, I cut corners. I don’t do a lot of real from-scratch cooking and baking anymore, because it’s just me and mom in the apartment. Maybe Pup. It’s too small and crowded to invite my friends over. We have no one to impress.

Enter: Semi-homemade goods. Thank Providence for things like Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, because I make all kinds of delicious stuff with those! Like today’s masterpiece. Continue reading “Tasty Tuesday: Semi-Homemade Chocolate Croissant”

Tasty Tuesday: The Easiest Chocolate Pie You’ll Ever Make in Your Life

I was originally going to post the recipe for my beef stew, but then I remembered that my beef stew is pretty boring* because I only like meat and potatoes and carrots in beef stock. And it never thickens right. I can never get it the right consistency.

And then on Saturday night Allen and writer-friend Chase Connor had an exchange about chocolate pie which awakened my inner Homer Simpson.

So, I decided I was going to make pie. Not Snickers pie, sadly. Maybe next time. Continue reading “Tasty Tuesday: The Easiest Chocolate Pie You’ll Ever Make in Your Life”

Tasty Tuesday: An Attempt was Made

Okay, so, like I said at the beginning of this year’s Blogtober, some of my Tasty Tuesday treats would be things I’ve never attempted before. Maybe they’d come out bomb (like the ice cream filled cake pops) or maybe they’d be a total disaster.

Today’s attempt at making Fudge-Stuffed Cookies was a total disaster. But, they’re still delicious, so I’m still calling it a win. An ugly, messy win. Continue reading “Tasty Tuesday: An Attempt was Made”

Getting Healthy and Making Changes (Recipe Request)

Honestly, I think at least part of the reason I feel hesitant to continue pursuing Nutrition as my major (aside from all the awful, awful math I have to take) it because I feel like such a raging hypocrite. I have the worst diet, witches. Seriously, awful. And forget exercise (who even has time for that???). Since my catabolism* ran away from home when I turned twenty-two, I’ve gained a lot of weight and turned into a lethargic blob.

The weight I don’t mind, really. If I’m fat, I’m fat, and that’s just how it is. That just means there’s more of me to be awesome. But, I wouldn’t mind being awesome and healthy. It’s not the fat that bothers me; it’s the lack of energy and pain that I have a problem with.

And with thirty looming on the horizon (holy sh–!) I really need to get my health in order while I’m still young enough to do so.

So, I’m trying to make healthier dietary and fitness choices. Which is kind of a bummer, because healthy food doesn’t taste nearly as good as cupcakes and cookies. Nor do any of the healthy recipes I have look particularly blog-worthy. Oh, baked chicken and steamed vegetables! Many wow! Such amaze!

Except, you know, not really. It’s all pretty boring, standard stuff.

Which is where you come in (hopefully). Drop your favorite healthy (preferably low-sodium) dishes in the comments. Hook a witch up!

Meanwhile, I’ll be off in the abyss of my bedroom, digging my stationary bike out from under the piles of clothes.

I love you all.

*Catabolism is the part of metabolism which breaks molecules down into smaller molecules and energy and is what most people talk about when they talk about “stimulating your metabolism.” Science has ruined the casual use of the term “metabolism” for me.

**The other part of metabolism is anabolism, which uses energy to bond smaller molecules to form bigger molecules. This is the process which builds muscle (among many other things). SCIENCE! WHEE!
