Work provides lunch every Thursday for everyone. Today was fried chicken, Mac n cheese, potato salad, and coleslaw. See that plate of crispy, crunchy goodness? That's what I cut off to get to the actual chicken. And it was PAINFUL to not eat it. Legit hard today. I tossed some cut up skin/breaking-free chicken on top of coleslaw. It was yummy and it worked as a fairly Keto-friendly adaptation. 🤷♀️ gotta be able to live in this world.

My husband had a work dinner tonight at The Keg and was trying to make me jealous all day. You guys know I don't put up with that crap and so I went to the butcher and got myself a steak I thought looked pretty, coated it in pepper and reverse seared it to perfection (thank god it turned out, because it wasn't cheap 🙈). It honestly melted in my mouth and I ate every last bite. I may look like I'm 5 months pregnant when he gets home but it was worth it. And here I thought #whole30
would be difficult 😉
Reverse searing is when you bake it and then toss it on the frying pan or grill after..or at least that's my understanding of it. I'm sure someone made a YouTube video of it if you want better instructions than to toss the steak but it worked for me 😊
Snow days call for massive amounts of bullet proof coffee before and after shoveling. ☕️❄️
Got home late from work so I heated up my burger I couldn’t finish last night, carnival burger topped with green pepper and onion as well as mozzarella. I fried up an egg and topped my burger with it. SO GOOD. Having it with a late night coffee. 😍😍😍
Lemon + Herb wings and Parmesan + Herb beans. Got the water in today and the walk. Good day! ☺️
And we have another city champ in the house 🏆 Congrats to @russellbuffie
and the Bantam A1 Seals for an amazing finish to a great season! #hockey #champs
Whipping up some #paleosloppyjoes
. I’ll let you know tomorrow how it turns out...
My “I still need to go grocery shopping” snacky dinner (after I ate some of the cheese — that stuff is delightful). Maybe I’ll actually go to the store this weekend.
Made some cheesecake fluff! Got the recipe from @thatrandomketopage
from a while ago and finally got around to making in! So delicious! 1 package sugar free cheesecake pudding and 2 cup heavy whipping cream, beat it until it gets fluffy! I got 10 servings (1/4 cup each) 2.4 carbs per serving! Also, if you don’t have silicone muffin cups, you need them! We use them so much to make sure we get perfect portions 👌#Keto #ketogenicdiet #ketogenic #ketocheesecake #cheesecakefluff #ketosis #ketodessert
7 days strict Keto & she’s back. ✌🏻💃 I can always tell when I kick into Ketosis from the tang in my mouth.... 😝 Thankfully it goes away after a few weeks.... This level has been slowly creeping up all week & I was in Ketosis within 4 days after 3 months off. Feeling grateful to my body for recognising that it loves burning fat over glucose, the quick transition & no Keto Flu this time round! Thank you my mate! 😂😘 Now here goes to not going overboard with checking my levels (lets accept they change from day to day, a bit like the scales...) or overthinking what I’m doing & if it’s working ok.... here goes to a good weekend of trusting the process! 💪🏻 Happy Friday ❤️ #keto #ketodiet #ketosis #ketones #ketogenic #ketogenicdiet #lchf #lchfdiet #ketolove #autoimmunedisease #thyroidlove #selfcare #ketofam #aussieketo #aussieketobabes
This bird's eye lentil pasta is amazing. If you really need a pasta fix and you're willing to play around with 9 carbs (for a half serving), then check this stuff out. Very surprised how much they feel like noodles. There is an almost green bean sort of after taste, but its not a deal breaker by any means.
Okay this is another level of vision board. Sometimes seeing it on video as well as just stagnant on the wall adds another layer of belief in your subconscious. You're welcome to watch it on my YouTube channel there's no monetization I'm just sharing it for those that might want to give it a try. I just used Movie Maker on my laptop, no big deal - easy peasy lemon squeezy #visionboard #takecareofyourselfgirl #ketogenicdiet #ketogenic #lchf
Here are the final macros for the day. I am going to keep playing with upping fat and keeping protein lower to see how I feel and how my glucose and ketones respond. I know with all the weightlifting that I do need an adequate amount of protein, but I am beginning to think that I may have been overeating it a bit even without the cycle issues causing insulin sensitivity to fluctuate. #keto #ketosis #ketogenic #ketoquest #lchf #intermittentfasting
Leftovers I prepped on Sunday! Soooooo happy I have lunches/dinners prepped for the week ahead using a couple hours on the weekend!!!
General Tso’s Chicken is on the table tonight! 🥦🍗
DanO’s Spaghetti Squash Turkey Alfredo
Cut and clean pit of spaghetti squash, then drizzle with olive oil and DanO’s, also drizzle oil on baking sheet and place squash flat side down! Roast at 400 for 30-45 minutes depending on size, you know it’s done when you can dent the shell with something. While squash is cooking first brown 1 lb Turkey burger, set aside and keep pan hot on high heat, add veggies, I use bell pepper, onion and jalapeño, need 1 cup split to add 3 times, each time it cooks out add more, then after veggies have cooked to desired tenderness add meat and Alfredo and top in you roasted squash. Enjoy! #alfredo #alfredosauce #spaghettisquash #spaghetti #recipe #recipes #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #yummy #instagood #instafood #food #foodie #allnatural #keto #ketodiet #ketogenic #ketogenicdiet #paleo #paleodiet #seasoning #spices #lowsodium #lowsodiumdiet
Am I the only one who doesn’t enjoy almonds?! I pretty much have forced myself to eat them in the past because they are “good for you,” but I’ve never really liked them. So someone please tell me why I bought a Costco sized bag of them.... Anyway, they’ve been sitting in the pantry and I finally decided to do something with them. I roasted them in spices, and I have to say, they’re pretty dang tasty! It almost reminds me of like a spicy BBQ chip. I don’t think I’ll be having to force myself to eat these! 👍See my IG story for the simple process I went through to make these. The aroma that filled the house was so savory. My mom walked in and thought I was making meatloaf. 😂
Melt 4 T butter in a bowl. Whisk in
4 t Worcestershire sauce
3 t chili powder
1 t garlic powder
1 t cumin
1/2 t dried basil
1/2 t onion powder
1t cayenne powder
Then add 3 c almonds and stir until coated. Bake at 350 for 18-20 min, flipping frequently. When done, sprinkle with 1 t sea salt and let cool completely before storing in airtight container.

In my opinion the Enjoy Life morsels taste so much better than Lily’s but that’s my preference!! The net carbs are not even a factor since there’s only 1 net carb difference and the morsels seem to be better quality with a much more rich flavor 🤗😍🤪 #ketosis #ketogenic #ketodiet #ketorecipes #ketogeniclifestyle
