Recently, my family celebrated the marriage of my nephew Austin to his beautiful bride Hannah (welcome to the family!). While on that trip, I slipped. Yes. I fell from grace and cheated on my Keto diet. Let me tell you, the worse thing to do is to cheat on your diet that has been making you feel all kinds of awesome and then a week later regret it completely and totally.
I started feeling all kinds of awful and even developed this gorgeous blemish on my chin. My body started to hurt and for the first time in months I woke up to aching in my left leg. Well, if anything is going to push a person to get back on the wagon, then that should be it.
Since I had allowed myself carbs and sugars I was craving them again. Ugh. So not happy about this but I feel it is only fair to let you all know. I'm far from perfect. I do have a lot of self control but once that control is lost, watch out people!
I had seen a recipe in Cooking Light while browsing my Kindle Fire magazines to kill my boredom of a 12 hour ride. This recipe was for fruit on the bottom pudding. I immediately thought that I needed to take that recipe, make it my own, and make it keto friendly.
I have a ton of delicious rhubarb in my patch this year so I immediately thought of my Mom's Rhubarb Sauce (pictured above) and how it would be awesome to incorporate into this recipe! However, we have also been hooked on strawberries this year, more so because we've been enjoying them with my Low Carb Cheesecake Fruit Dip so much.
I decided it was time to create a keto friendly rhubarb sauce, but this time I wanted to add strawberries to the picture.
