Diet Doctor

When I first started a Keto diet in January of 2017, I found Diet Doctor extremely helpful.  The articles were great but I especially like the selection of videos available.  They were a mix of recordings of presentations given at conferences, and more personal videos about both the science behind Keto and experiences with eating Keto.  There are even recipes for those who like to cook!

They offer a lot of content for free but even more if you want to become a member for a small monthly fee.

Meditation Apps

I’m not always great about meditation—sitting still doesn’t come naturally to me—but I did find these apps increased the likelihood I would take a few minutes to be alone with my thoughts.  There are a ton of apps out there you can use so if those don’t work for you, pick another.  Meditation is worthwhile even in small increments!

  • buddhify: This app offers a color wheel so you can identify the best meditation for the situation you are in at the time.
  • Breathe: This app starts by asking you a few questions before recommending a particular meditation.  A cool feature is being able to choose between two different guides (usually a male or a female in my experience).

Podcast Favorites

  • Happier Podcast: This podcast, hosted by author Gretchen Rubin and her sister, Elizabeth, always inspires me to  think more deeply about how my daily habits contribute to—or inhibit—happiness in my life.
  • Savvy Psychologist: Almost every episode provides useful tips for me given my struggles with anxiety.  The episodes are short too—usually around 12 minutes.

Trader Joe’s

If you have never shopped at Trader Joe’s you are missing out.  If Aldi and Whole Foods got together and had a baby, it would be Trader Joe’s (or TJ’s as it is more affectionately known)!  They don’t have online shopping so you do have to live near one to shop there but I highly recommend you make the trip.  Here are a few of my favorite Keto-friendly TJ’s products.
