Banting My Way…
This morning’s breakfast was the standard Eggs, Bacon and Avo. To my horror, when I punched in my food into Spark People’s Nutrition Tracker, I had eaten all but one of my 20 carbs in that one meal! That was because I had taken the seemingly sage advice to eat a whole avo with my breakfast…at 15 carbs! I will not do that again. Half an avo is just fine for me. I will also be soaking seeds for my lipase containing sprouts today. They are so low in carbs and great for snacking straight from the fridge.
Dinner was a 300g T-bone steak, and a tiny bit of biltong (beef jerky) while I was cooking. And some salted butter on the tip of my finger. Love butter!
My thoughts on a few things: Having the same breakfast every day is as boring as bullshit. No replica foods is even more boring, especially if you are an avid cook such as I am. And a taste fiend! I LOVE different tastes. So off I went trawling the internet for keto recipes and I found masses of delicious looking dishes. I also have some good ones in the Real Meal Revolution Cookbook. After all, that is how I started this Low Carb High Fat journey.
Brunch with Amanda:
Bacon and Egg Scramble with Cheese Grillers, Mushrooms with Garlic and Ginger, and Guacamole
I have committed to doing two weeks induction (as in Atkins) with my buddy Amanda, to accompany her on the start of her LCHF/Keto journey. This is a good thing for me as I am in need of a bit of discipline right now. AND… I am already looking forward to some awesome cooking experiments to come after our Fat Burning Fortnight! Yay! Pancakes, breads and muffins, waffles…all sorts of tasty morsels. Craig from ruled.me is so prolific with wonderful keto recipes, it’s like being a kid in a candy store visiting his site!
But in the meantime – off to boil 6 eggs for quick snacks. Loving this healthy journey!
Cruising with the Revolution!
