Yesterday (March 23rd) was National Puppy Day! This day was established by Colleen Paige in 2006.

National Puppy Day is a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives. But more importantly, it’s a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills.

My husband and I recently welcomed a new puppy into our home! We have a 3 1/2 year old Bernese Mountain dog named, Snugglepumpkin (Snugs for short), and we felt it was time for her to have a sister. Orla was born on January 9, 2019, and she came home with us on March 1, 2019.

Snugs and Orla (March 2019)

If you are here, I’m sure you know how fun AND difficult it can be to train a new puppy. Everything is a brand new experience for them, and they are continually learning!

Avoiding Keto Flu on the Low-Carb Diet -- Clean Fingers Laynie

When you are on a low-carb diet, “keto flu” symptoms can strike any time–not just during the first week or two! But, you may not have to suffer! Avoiding “keto flu” on a low-carb diet is easy when you learn what foods and supplements to add to your diet to alleviate electrolyte deficiency symptoms.

What is the “Keto Flu”?

Overall, I love the low-carb diet! It doesn’t involve buying specialty products or prepackaged food. When eating a low-carb diet, my appetite dramatically decreases, I no longer have intense sugar cravings, and my afternoon energy slumps are practically non-existent. Additionally, this is the healthiest and most consistent way I’ve found to lose weight without feeling deprived.

If you have started a low-carb diet, you know how rough the first several days can be while your body is adjusting from being a sugar-burner to being a fat-burner!

Avoid “Keto flu” symptoms! Balance your electrolytes through your diet!

“Keto flu” is a term used to describe flu-like symptoms associated with beginning, or during, a very low-carb ketogenic diet. However, it is not a “flu” at all; the “keto flu” should really be called electrolyte imbalance.
