Gosh, I’ve been really missing you! But here I am, finally! My sincerest apologies that I’ve been away for so long. As you might remember, I was working on my Facebook marketing video course and I thought I would have time for blogging after I have launched it. Heck, my thoughts proved to be completely wrong! I have been busier than ever! With messages and clients flooding via email, Facebook, Skype and with just a couple of hours sleep at nights, my head is full of buzz and the need for sleep is worst than ever. But, I don’t want to complain at all, just the opposite, this has been a fun process and I have learned a lot.
But, now I’m back and I have great plans for you! First, to make up a little bit my absence, here is a recipe round-up of the best low-carb recipes with 5 ingredients or less. I’ve searched the web to find the best, easiest and the most delicious recipes for you!
