What is a Ketogenic Diet?

The Art and Science of Ketogenic Diet A MUST Read!

The ketogenic diet (often termed a keto diet) is a very low-carb(less than 20 net grams per day), high-fat diet. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. The reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

I have not posted anything about tiny houses in a while, but make no mistake, I still love tiny house floor plans!

Here are just a few of what may be considered the top tiny houses of 2015.

1. Tiny home built from bottles, bones and beach debris

Sleeping in a space without electricity on a totally silent beach on a remote island behind thick walls, it was the quietest night I have ever spent. The light filtering through the bottles and windows this morning from the rising sun was a glorious sight. It was a truly memorable experience.

2. Self Made 500$ Tiny Home

Now this is what I am talking about! Using salvaged materials and gifted items will keep costs down, as Pacific Northwest resident Scott Brooks did with his tiny home, which he built for “well below” USD $500.

Open Concept Modern Tiny House with Elevator Bed

Change The Code

Wow- This could be my favorite tiny house I’ve ever seen on YouTube. It is built by Ana White and her husband Jacob.

It really does have it all and it’s clever without being stupid. I am having a hard time finding any drawbacks to this tiny house. The fact that it’s the first tiny home I’ve seen with a female designer/carpenter can’t be coincidence either. Great problem solving in every aspect and I love that the plans are shared with the public.

See much more at Ana White

What do you think of this fantastic tiny house? Please share your thoughts in the comments and please share this post via social media. Thanks!

THE MAJESTIC BUS HOME

Made from a former bus, the Majestic Bus has been remodeled into a cute, little guest home in Hay-on-Wye, Wales.

The home was renovated with wood floors, a beautifully designed kitchen with cabinetry, a gas stove, and a fridge. There’s a double-sized bed in the home, in addition to an L-shaped sofa that can be converted into an extra bed. The home can comfortably fit up to four adults.

For energy, the Majestic Bus has solar panels on the roof to power the lights and electrical sockets. There’s no plumbing in the house, but there is a wooden bathhouse just a little ways away.

The bus is available for rent, for two people, from £90 – £145 per night(110USD-180USD), depending on the time of year. Extra people can be invited along for an additional fee. In addition to the four adults that…

4 Reasons Decluttering Leads To A Better Life

Change The Code

Life gets messy. And I mean that literally. The average American house has over 300000 items in it. That is a lot of stuff. And all of that stuff leads to clutter.

I’m sure each and every one of us has a tale to tell about clutter. With the rise of mass consumerism; the amount we purchase, consume, and ultimately store (often out of sight) has increased drastically. We just have too much stuff!

It seems that we have developed an obsession with material possessions or “things”, which, on the whole, don’t serve us at all. Perhaps at the time of purchase, we experienced that instant gratification. But very rarely, if at all, is that gratification sustaining.

The downside of this is that we find ourselves cluttering up our environment and our homes. Tied to this is a host of other problems.

The Paradox of Our Time

I love comments so please share your thoughts. Thank you!

Change The Code

paradox of our time Make time for yourself

The paradox of our time

in history is that
we have taller buildings but shorter tempers;
wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less;
we buy more but enjoy less

We have bigger houses and smaller families,
more conveniences, but less time;
we have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much,
spend too recklessly,
laugh too little,
drive too fast,
get too angry,
stay up too late, get up too tired,
read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life,
we’ve added years to life not life to years.

We’ve…
