Meet Fluffy Chix Cook's Up-coming Guest Bloggers!

The lymphedema saga continues and Fluffy Chix Cook is pleased to announce the theme of this treatment round #3 for our little Susie T. Gibbs is, “I get by with a great deal of help from my lchf, keto, paleo and primal friends!” So in advance, we thank each and every one of you who responded to Susie T’s open invitation to guest-blog aka guest-post. And here are some of the Guest-Bloggers you can expect in the coming 4-6 weeks at Fluffy Chix Cook. And, there might be more guest bloggers to come!

Misty Humphrey

Free Healthy Diet Plans

Be an example of disease prevention not disease maintenance. Eat well feel well!

by Misty Humphrey
I’ve known Misty for almost ten years and watched as she trained and became certified in holistic nutrition. This is a plus for us, because Misty operates and fully understands the low carb, paleo lifestyle. She lives it. It’s so refreshing to meet a nutritional consultant who does not spew the same “healthy grains” mantra that others push. Misty focuses on healing, traditional foods and helps her readers, friends and clients get to the bottom of what's keeping them from fully experiencing their true potential.

Misty Humphrey is a certified nutrition educator and coach. She’s helped thousands of people improve nutrition, reclaim health and lose weight. She teaches with an engaging style and great empathy. You may be unaware, but Misty battled weight issues for years. She now maintains an 85 pound loss and is at her ideal weight. She counsels from a perspective of "knowing what it's like to have food issues."

Misty’s website Free Healthy Diet Plans has so many fantastic low carb, keto and paleo recipes and also has free meal plans. More importantly, you can hire her to help develop individual plans that fit your personal needs. She’ll teach you all about low carb nutrition, shopping, meal planning, and can also help determine an exercise program that will work for you.

Just Fork It

Quick Pickles by Soren Schreiber-Katz
of JustForkIt Blog
Soren and I met on LCF (Low Carb Friends), a low carb support forum that also owns an online store called Netrition. We have been JUDDD Budds for years and I know this woman has serious cooking chops! JUDDD Budds is a group of friends who support each other while practicing the Johnson Up Day Down Day Diet aka JUDDD Diet for short, by Dr. James B. Johnson. We alternate day fast with calorie restriction. This means every other day we eat 500 calories and are free to eat whatever we want on alternating non-fast days.

Soren’s blog, Just Fork It, has so many fine recipes. I love that you know exactly how many calories and carbs you get per serving. And if you haven’t tried her Quick Pickle recipe, you should. It will change your life. Being from Texas, I appreciate her “no tomato” chili (ahem or “stew” as we call it—since it does have low carb beans in it…just sayin’). Her collard greens recipe makes me smack my lips!

Leeann Mullen Teagno

Cut The Wheat Ditch The Sugar

Low Carbalicious Carrot Cake by Leeann Teagno at
Cut The Wheat Ditch The Sugar Blog
Leeann Teagno and I are newly found, twins sistahs from different mistahs. Seriously. We share so many of the same metabolic issues and so many food loves. You can even call them obsessions. ;) We seriously heart great food, great food photos and are committed to a lifetime of low carb living. We’re both soul-cysters (aka people with PCOS, poly cystic ovarian syndrome). But Leeann has a further metabolic trial: Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Because of her metabolic issues, Leeann’s empathy and ability to transform regular high carbage nonsense into delicious and nutritious low carb food is a blessing to us all.

Her specialty is making the most incredible gluten free, low carb-legal baked goods. Don’t believe me? Just check out her Pink Cupcakes and amazing low carb carrot cake, and if you’re in the market for a great slow cooker recipe, try Leeann’s Really Freakin’ Good Balsamic Umami Roast Beef.

Judy Barnes Baker

Carb Wars Blog

Amazing Psylli Pitas are low carb legal
by Judy Barnes Baker at Carb Wars Blog
Judy is one of my low carb friends and gurus. Author of Nourished, a beautiful cookbook and low carb bible, helps both new and seasoned low carbers eat deeply nourishing and comforting food that provides healing as well as pleasure. Judy’s other books include Carb Wars: Sugar Is The New Fat. She’s also a contributing author in the very successful low carb cookbook series, Low-Carbing Among Friends Volumes I, II, III, IV, and V. All of Judy’s books are available online. Let’s just say, Judy is a very busy lady!

Do you “jones” for mac n’ cheese? Judy’s Too Delicious For Words Baked Macaroni Custard is seriously TLF (To Live For). It’s so rich and satisfying, I swear you will forget you are low carbing and living a keto or primal lifestyle.  But don’t just think Judy focuses strictly on great food, she also educates. Do you believe agave is good for you? Find out the truth about agave, learn about cholesterol, auto immune diets, and even find out what a 400 pound gorilla eats!

Peggy Hardaway aka Buttoni


Oxtail Stew with Psylli Dumplings by Peggy Hardaway
at Buttoni's Low Carb Recipes Blog
Peggy and I also met on LCF and became firm friends. Here ingenuity with food amazes me and if I want regional or exotic cuisine, Peggy’s my go-to-girl! But she’s also a great resource for Texas and Southern delicacies, as well. You see, Peggy is also a Texas gal! Yeeeehaw! As the title above claims, she has over 700 recipes on her blog to delight your low carb palate.

I’m not lying when I tell you that two of her recipes have reshaped the way I know low carb. Peggy’s Low Carb Dumpling recipe has changed my life. And it spawned so many other recipes that are now my low carb staples. (Some of them can’t be mentioned yet, because they will be a surprise in the coming months!) But take a look at her latest use of low carb dumplings in this gorgeous oxtail dish! Oh my, Peggy. How do you do it? It’s true that we eat with our eyes first, and Peggy’s food photography is simply stunning.

Kent Altena

Atkins Diet Geek Blog

Low Carb French Dressing - well-played, Kent, well-played.
Get the recipe at Atkins Diet Geek Blog.
Kent Altena and I have been friends for quite a good many years. We met in the blogosphere and I also knew of his work from LCF--where you might remember him as Bowolf. Many of you will also know Kent as one of the amazingly talented low carb recipe developers and authors of the Low-Carbing Among Friends series of cookbooks, Volumes I-V. And if you STILL don't know Kent, look for his great videos on YouTube. Kent takes the fear and stress out of low carb cooking, showing how simple it is to prepare great tasting low carb food, every day.

Kent is a heavy-hitter. He went from 419lbs to 221lbs, reclaiming his life, liberating his couch, and becoming a marathon runner. Read Kent's success story by Amy Dungan. He's an inspiration to us all and a testament for the Atkins Low Carb approach. (Just in case any of you are wondering if this lifestyle really works...) He will be whipping up a taste treat, but in case you need something NOW, check out Kent's incredible Jamaican Jerk Chicken or the Best Low Carb Pizza Ever.

I invite you to join us in the coming weeks as my sweet friends guest post here on Fluffy Chix Cook. Please be sure to share this news with all your friends and don’t forget to check back often to see the latest guest post!

(And thanks to each of you for stepping in to fill the gap for me so that our important friends don’t have to go weeks without new low carb tall tales from Fluffy Chix Cook! I owe each of you a big debt of gratitude! MUAH to each of you! xoxo!)
