Not bad for a girl who can’t grill! 😬 Carbs tonight are in the form of greens aka garlic Parmesan asparagus 💙
When you don’t drink coffee, but you drink “bulletproof tea”! There are 12 different kinds of tea in my drawer currently. Can you find them all? 💙
“Cheat days” are usually thought of as 24hrs of uncontrolled binging where you eat and drink anything you want. Well, on Keto, if you do that, you’re gonna have a bad time. Through many trial-and-errors I’ve found that the best way to have exceptions is to experience 1-2 cheat “meals” no more than once a week. They rarely include bread/grains or heavy sugar/processing and still remain until 30-40g carbs. Then, if you don’t return steadfastly to your regular eating habits, well then you’re just plain cheating 😬 After a long weekend out full of mostly Keto-friendly EtOH, I’m back at it with my current favorite breakfast: bulletproof tea and garlic eggs ✌🏻I love getting so much fat and calories in at the beginning of the day- helps ya get going! (Also makes up for usually being too busy at work to eat) 💙

One of my favorite kitchen appliances is my Nuwave Oven, especially for cooking meats. It keeps them nice and juicy with a little browning on the edges. And it’s SO fast! Used it to make some delicious salmon for me and the girls tonight 😋 #lastmealoftheday #myketodiary #nuwaveoven #keto #salmondinner

😍💪 2 days shy of a week living the keto lifestyle and although I've resisted the temptation to weigh myself, I can SEE & FEEL the results! I have alot more ⚡energy and TBH I am in a better mood than usual😂 cutting sugar and carbs has been the most challenging thing I have ever done but the end results will be so worth it! #50lbs #4months
PMS baking yields... @keto.connect
chocolate chip cookie dough balls! Unfortunately the Keto diet, while it can tame most of your sweet cravings, doesn’t allow you to be immune to what havoc monthly hormones can do. Luckily I had most of the ingredients to pull this dessert off, with the exception of erythritol; I used powdered stevia instead (which is marketed as a “healthier” sweetener but is not Keto since it still spikes your blood sugar/insulin just like normal sugar does). Oh well. It definitely helped me not run down the street and buy candy from the gas station! 😱
Reheated ribs grilled by @kordyte
are better than mine when I grill fresh 😂
New obsession: arugula citrus salad. I had this originally from @morebrewing
and I couldn’t help but try to recreate it! Arugula, avocado, pineapple, goat cheese, grilled chicken, candied walnuts, and citrus vinaigrette 💙 I practically inhaled this for lunch today and I can’t wait to have it again!
Dear Fitbit, that’s what happens when you work 12-hr shifts 😂
Note to self: don’t take your bread out of the mold before it’s fully cooled! 🙈 Still delicious, though. I added a sprinkle of cacao nibs to see if a little bit of chocolate would amp up the flavor for those chocoholics. Sadly, it doesn’t make much of a difference in this small amount. I love how easy to make this is, I think that’s why I’m so okay with experimenting! 💙
Keto candied walnuts using monkfruit! All credit for this amazing recipe goes to @nora_acleanbake
! I can’t wait to toss these in my salads! Hopefully they’ll last that long, haha! 💙
Trying to dip more into the salad game! I thought I hated salad dressing for years, but turns out there such a thing as citrus salad dressing and raspberry salad dressings! They’re much fruitier and less vinegar-like, which was awesome. Found 2 that sounded good, and after tasting them I can’t WAIT to have them in my salads! Bonus: 2 tbsp of each is still doable! 💙
On the advice of my Keto mentor @madcapnarcolepsy
, I’m adding some carbs back in. I think I overdid it though, haha. I thought of incorporating Fage 5% yogurt (the most Keto yogurt I’ve been able to find to this date and still has 6g carbs) into my daily eggs. But instead of trying one spoonful of it, I figured the hell with it and dumped the WHOLE thing in. Bad move, elise. The eggs would not cook or stick together, so I added 2 more eggs for a total of 6, and it was able to somewhat bind together to be edible. Lesson learned, and let’s hope that adding in a few extra carbs (under 20 but not at 0) helps get me back into ketosis, and back on track 💙
Finally tried these @mikeys
Lemon Blueberry Muffin Tops today (forgot I had them at work). Since I knew what I was having for lunch & dinner, I knew I had carbs to spare. It didn’t have as many blueberries as pictured but I knew they were there. The lemon is subtle, so don’t expect it to be lemony. Overall it was tasty. Hopefully my Sprouts will have the chocolate next time, this was a good stand in though #muffintop #ketofoodsnob #ketogenicdiet #ketocommunity #myketodiary
Back to basics! I’ve been avoiding the grill because I keep messing up perfect cuts of meat and therefore my protein macros have been lacking. But my body has been craving real meat and I just said screw it. So I went back to my super thin cut chicken breasts: they’re super quick, easy, and I know how to grill them where they’re delicious and perfect. No more excuses. Cooked up enough for meal prep this week! 🍗
Zucchini bread 2.0!!! Doubled the recipe, cut down the sweetener, and squeezed the water out of the zucchini before baking this time and I think I’m getting closer to perfection! It actually looks like real bread too! 👩🏼🍳💙
Tengkleng rica-rica Pak Manto, Semarang. Dagingnya lembut, rasa pedas manis pakai irisan cabe rawit merah yah ditabur ke kuah warna cokelat a.k.a kuah kecap.
Direkomendasikan buat disantap!
Rumah makannya ada di dalam satu area taman kuliner, meski banyak pilihan tapi yang ini menggoda selera saya.
Maklum pediet #keto
meski setengah-setengah tapi kudu konsisten konsumsi makanan kaya lemak. #myketojourney #myketodiary #cheatingday #ketocheatday #indonesiafood #localtaste #ilovefood
It doesn’t look like much, but in a pinch, diced cauliflower/broccoli makes a fantastic afternoon snack. I threw it over hot oil to hopefully make it crispy, and it turned out ok. Not as crispy as I hoped, and even the garlic powder could only do so much. But that’s the thing about experimenting: not everything works! It’s all about trying 💙
Potongan daging yang empuk ini cuma ada di Soto Pak Sholeh, di Jogjakarta. Karena baru landing langsung ke tempat ini.
Hati senang, perut kenyang. #myketodiary #ketocheating #wheninjogja
