So, I’ve been out of action for a bit. Friday was the first time eating out on Keto! Needless to say, I kicked ass. We went out to Silver City with the family and a friend. I had a HUGE dinner, but it was totally worth it. :] I had a steak with green beans and roasted garlic, with some coffee and the scraped off toppings of their flatbread. Yum!
Saturday was moving day for my Mother-in-law! I made chorizo and eggs for five. The others had toast, I had coffee. Keto has gotten me hooked on coffee. Especially with my liquid stevia that tastes like toffee… oh my goodness it is crazy delicious. How have I lived without this?!
The move went smoothly enough (though the apartment complex is staffed by jerks) and I made Pork Florentine for dinner. The boys had pasta alfredo on the side and I had massive quantities of spinach. Spinach is amazing!
Saturday night, my husband’s former recruiter arrived from California. He’s returning to the Nimitz after a tour in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, hubby had duty on Sunday so it was just me and the buddy. We went out to Trapper’s Sushi, where I was strong! So strong! I had a rather lot of sashimi and a handroll with minimum rice. It was pretty damn delicious, though I was CRAVING the tempura rolls like crazy. :[
Sunday evening I reheated the last of my No Shell Taco Salad and made home made pizza rolls for the buddy. I had one, but each has 4 grams of net carbs and I didn’t trust myself to have restraint. :[
Yesterday was Monday! Monday was good, actually. I overate like crazy at lunch, easily eating a pound of super fatty pork chops and a giant salad. Hubby was a bit upset that I didn’t have dinner, but I was stuffed. We took Pooch to the Waterfront, which he loved. He got to run around and be pet by loads of people. He’s such an attention whore. 😛 Some friends came over for dinner, so I threw some steaks on the grill and my home-girl made mac and cheese for the boys. Home-girl is more Paleo than Keto, but she also abhors carbs. I am not alone~~~! We settled down with Pooch and watched Top Gear while the boys played Magic. It was a most enjoyable evening. :]
Now, finally, we reach today! Today is TUESDAY! I broke my fast around two o clock with Eggplant Lasagna.
It was scrumptious! 10 net carbs per serving, but 15.43 g of protein and 21 g of fat. :] I was craving pasta, so this seemed like an awesome substitute. No squash next time, though. So many carbs!!
Hubby and I are going to a friends for dinner tonight for some low country cooking. Said homie will, hopefully, make me a portion that doesn’t have potatoes and corn. He’s pretty understanding, and a kick ass cook, so I will keep my portion sizes low and hopefully stay in ketosis.
Now, to drink more water!
