“White knuckle dieting only gets you so far – about as far as the scene of the crash.” So says Susie T. Gibbs, author of Fluffy Chix Cook, an irreverent food and recipe blog out of Texas churning out tall tales and low carb vittles. Susie comes from a long line of fluffy chix who cooked (and talked) a blue streak and she’s on a mission. Having lost 86 pounds, she’s a gun-toting DFSW (Delicate Flower of Southern Womanhood) with steely determination and deadly aim. And she wants to help you live a healthy, low carb life while enjoying all the comfort foods you’ve come to know and love. No willpower necessary. Please join Susie and go from fluffy to fit one low carb meal at a time. And don’t forget, you too can learn how to wrangle a tangle of bacon and skin chiles like a champ when you join SusieT in Fluffy Chix low carb adventures along the azalea trails and tangled bayous of the wild and wicked, Texas Gulf Coast.
