I’ve been trying to get back to my low carb / keto (ish) style of eating just so I can keep added sugars out of my diet. I haven’t been so good lately. PCOS isn’t going to fix itself and since there is no cure, I owe it to myself to find things I can eat which will help me manage it.

When I posted about the SkinnyTaste cookbook and the Skinny Rustic Italian Gnocchi, I mentioned there were some more recipes coming from that cookbook. [Read more…]
