A lot of people may wonder how I manage to have a full-time career as an engineer, run a food blog, and take care of a restless young child without hiring any help. My husband works from home which allows us to keep our youngest daughter out of daycare.
So, when I get home in the afternoon, he is certainly ready to turn her over to me. We do have two older children who are college age, so they aren’t always around or willing to help watch their little sister
That leaves me coming home after a long work day taking over as mom. My daughter will be 3 years old in a few more months so I’m starting to consider sending her to daycare now, at least part time.
I’ll admit that it isn’t always easy to balance everything in my busy life, but I’ve been an engineer for quite a while which means I’ve earned a lot of vacation time. I also work a flexible schedule where I have every other Friday off.
I used to have every Friday off, but there was a tradeoff. Working four day weeks meant 10 hour work days. Working every other Friday means I only have to work 9 hour days, and an 8 hour Friday every other week.
Although I miss having every Friday off, I’m liking getting out of work an hour earlier. It doesn’t seem like much, but I feel like my evenings are much longer now.
When things get busy at work, I see a lot of my coworkers indulging in high carb treats. I started keeping a stash of these low carb chocolate peanut butter fat bomb snacks in the freezer at work. I used to run to the candy machine back before going low carb, now I have to keep my own supply of healthy snack food.
With my busy schedule, I don’t always have a lot of time to make low carb treats for myself. This low carb chocolate peanut butter fat bomb recipe requires very little preparation as you just have to melt the ingredients together then pour into molds.
Since the coconut oil melts easily in your hands, I like to keep them in an airtight container in the freezer. Calories are fairly low, so you can sneak in two of them and not overdo it! You may also like my recipes for white chocolate fat bombs and blackberry coconut fat bombs.
