Q&A: Body Positivity, How Bloggers Make Money, Dating After Divorce & Why I’m Scared to be 40 and Single

I’ll be honest, I was terrified to post this YouTube video, because I’m sharing things that make me feel extremely vulnerable. But i have learned that it’s the things that I am scared to share that people seem to connect to the most.

So I’m getting very real and vulnerable with this Q&A. I have timestamped the topics below…. I know this is a long video but I wanted to do minimal editing to keep it as real as possible….

Low Carb Keto Cheesecake Recipe & Cheesecake Pinup

Since pinup art is loving referred to as cheesecake pinups, I have been wanting to combine my favorite low carb cheesecake recipe with my leopard bikini (generously gifted by Playful Promises). This cheesecake recipe is a spin on an old Weight Watchers recipe I’ve saved for years and been doing variations on forever. This time I tried it with Swerve to make a low carb/keto-ish dessert….

Low Carb Cheesecake Recipe

Cheesecake:

2 lbs Low Fat Cream Cheese

1 cup Swerve granular

1 tsp Vanilla Extract 

2 Large Eggs

2 Large Egg Whites

1 Tbsp Lemon Zest

Crust:

Coconut oil

Almond Flour 

(You can use chopped nuts, or graham cracker like substitutes if you want something crunchier, I like the soft, creamy texture of the almond flour)

Preheat oven to 350F

Grease the bottom of a 9inch springform pan with coconut oil and sprinkle with almond flour to coat the bottom.

In a large bowl, beat the cheesecake ingredients until smooth

Bake until center is almost set (50-60min)

Let cool and chill overnight
