Meet JUUL-The Better Vaping Alternative

Meet JUUL, the Better Vaping Alternative

Small, compact, light and thin…fits anywhere!

Hey Everybody! What a great day this has been! Back from my 7-day cruise and I just have to say, without this little jewel (JUUL) I would have not been a happy vaper.

In fact, I turned someone else on to JUUL that has never smoked anything in his life!! He had so much fun vaping with me one night on the ship, I don’t know if he will ever do it again, but he liked it that night. 😉

Most of you who follow me, know that I used to smoke several years ago, switched to vaping and normally use a tank and ejuice. Sometimes I vape CBD also. JUUL is such a better vaping alternative, with its slim design you can vape discreetly just about anywhere!

I had a little two zipper purse/pouch like thing I bought on the ship to take my cards, money, and phone everywhere. JUUL fit in the smallest pouch and was so great instead of lugging around a big tank and battery mod. At the pool, in y room, at the bars and lounges…I took it every place I went.

You can check it out yourself at JUUL to see all the ins and outs, how its made, all the flavors, their mission statement and more. You can even shop for your starter kit there. It’s a much less expensive vape system too!

Your starter kit look a like this: 

Your refill pods look like this:

I have tobacco and mango flavors left.

Your charger looks like this:

It has magnetic points your JUUL attaches to

Each pod holds about 200 puffs depending on how you vape. When you empty a pod, just take it off the top of the holder and snap in a new one.

Just follow the directions in your starter kit and you’ll be a pro in no time! Good luck and happy vaping!

 

 

Keto Granola, Breakfast, Snack, or Dessert Topping?

How best to use this Keto Granola? For breakfast, snack, or dessert topping? However you want I say!

Good afternoon everyone and how are you? We are happy to see sunshine for the first day in a week or more! It’s been raining so much and cloudy for so long, I was about to succumb to depression.

I found this recipe for keto granola on Fat For Weight Loss and I absolutely love it! You should visit his site, he always has lots of great ideas and tips for great keto recipes. (Click on the link for the recipe)

I don’t know about you, but breakfast is honestly the hardest part of this diet (and getting enough fat) because I get bored with eggs pretty quick. Now I have a great tasting alternative that can be used for breakfast and a lot more!

I had everything I needed except the MCT oil and it still turned out terrific and tasted great. If it is still not sweet enough for you, just add a sprinkle of granulated Stevia to your bowl of granola and almond or coconut milk.

My favorite new breakfast! Keto granola with almond milk and maybe a few frozen blueberries!

It delivers that crunch we on the keto diet miss so much, the only thing I wished for was some raisins or craisins, the Paleo granola I used to make had dried fruit in it.

Do try this and tell me how you like it. It’s mainly nuts and seeds, mixed with butter, egg, and sugar free maple syrup, baked a few minutes in the oven to toast it and voila!

This granola can be used however you like it, snack out of the bag, in a bowl for breakfast with almond milk, or layered between low-carb yogurt in a parfait glass. Top your keto pudding or ice cream with it!

I keep mine in the fridge to keep it fresh and crispy. Freezer is fine too.

Also, I’m here to tell you I may be going radio silent for the next week, I’m off on my cruise tomorrow morning bight and early! An entire week y’all, I must say, I’m getting excited!

Food Poisoning Blows! 🤮

Ugh!! I guess I contracted food poisoning somewhere over the last few days, and food poisoning ( otherwise known as foodborne illness) really blows y’all!! 🤮

I spent all night in one or the other of our two bathrooms…vomiting, and then suffering the watery diarrhea, over and over. Now I’m writing from my bed, too weak to want to do much at all.

There is no telling where I picked it up, Tuesday I ate at a salad bar, Wednesday I ate at a Chinese buffet, and last night I made my first attempt at Keto Green Curry.

See the Asian eggplant in the Green Curry I made last night?

I was a bit worried that the frozen chicken had been on the counter thawing for 7 hours, yet it still felt cool when I stuck it back in the fridge til Dave got home to cut it up for me.

Then it cooked hard for 15 minutes and simmered about 20 more as I made the    “Miracle Rice”. All of t tasted good, I just didn’t feel that hungry, as the night went on, my stomach hurt worse and worse til all heck broke loose around 10:30 pm.

Besides, if it was the chicken, wouldn’t Dave be sick too?

Now I’m sipping water and nibbling on crackers, laying in bed feeling gross and all I can think about is what needs to be cleaned. With Clorox! Ugh!

signs and symptoms of food poisoning

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • watery or bloody diarrhea
  • abdominal pain and cramps
  • fever

I had every single one of those, and a throbbing head-that part is still hanging on.

According to the mayo clinic, “signs and symptoms may start with an hours after eating the contaminated food or they may begin days or even weeks later sickness caused by food poisoning generally last for a few hours to several days.”

I don’t know what to do first,  eat something like soup, clean up all the messes I made, or take a shower, but all I FEEL like doing is laying here.

And to think, I was trying to remain Keto compliant. Eating salad one day for lunch,then meats off the buffet the next…only to catch some kind of virus or food poisoning. Not the way I’d go about losing a pound or two! 🤮

Stay vigilant y’all! Wash your hands and be careful of your food choices when out…better yet, cook your own as much as possible. I normally cook at home but dad and I go out once a week at least for lunch.

Have any of you every had food poisoning?

When to see a doctor

  •  Frequent episodes of vomiting and inability to keep liquids down
  •  Bloody vomit or stools
  •  Diarrhea for more than three days
  •  Extreme pain or severe abdominal cramping
  •  An oral temperature higher than 100.4 F
  •  Signs or symptoms of dehydration excessive thirst, dry mouth, little to no urination, severe weakness, dizziness, or lightheadedness
  •  Neurological symptoms such as blurry vision muscle weakness and tingling in the arms

Luckily I’m over the worst of it!

I had it the worst one time in Korea. what was weird about that time was, I used to eat food from the village in Oijonbu all the time, yet I got this horrible case of food poisoning ON BASE!

I had eaten lasagna from what I remember at the officers club.

Since I started this post I managed to eat some soup and a few more crackers clean up the mess I made and now I’m about ready to go lay back down. I’m sorry that I’m out of it today, I tried to catch up on my email, but my eyes even hurt.

I hope everyone is having a way better Thursday and feeling great! I’ll be back as soon as I recover. 😊
