I went keto grocery shopping with the fine folks at Netrition . This is an online grocery store for all things #keto.
So, here are the most kikass findings I was able to get..and for a great price. I am cheap AF.
Meet you new best friend!
2. Smartcake: Bae approved!
3. ChocZero: A chocolate that tastes just like MonCheries!!
4. Thin Slim Foods’ Zero Carb Bread
I’ve tested it Over and over. The secret is to butter or oil the bread the second the toast pops. I’ve made grilled cheese sandwiches, and now with the Keto Nutella Inwill eat my favorite Spanish treat: pan y chocolate!!!
5. Smart Sweets
Can’t help the sweet tooth? You are in LUCK!!!
5. Konjac noodles. Better than the “real” (fattening) thing!
6. Keto Pancakes!!! By Good Dees Mix!!!
These are no-joke good. And the keto syrup by @ChocZero is to kill for.
7. KETO CHIPS!!!
I love all! Protes for Nachos, Whisps, you name them! Here’s all of them!
If you hate NOT dipping something on queso or guacamole when going out to the Mexican, look no further than chiles toreados!
See, the jalapenos lose a lot of the spice during the heating process, but don’t let it fool you. You can control the heat by taking out the seeds (boo!) and then grilling them coated on olive oil. Mmmmm
Peppers, cheese and…peppers!
Featured peppers: jalapeno and ghost pepper slices on delicious cream and mozarella, wrapped in bacon. I guess that makes a three-way of sorts!
Steak and Eggs
The ultimate decadence, especially if the steak is medium rare!
This here is my Waffle House go-to meal of choice. Delicious. Almost doesn’t piss you off to leave out the hash browns.
Chorizo with queso: Queso fundido with chorizo
The best keto Mexican dip is Queso Fundido with Chorizo. Omg I swear I can eat this whole thing up with a spoon.
Shrimp and Avocados
No matter how you combine them, they always do well.
There’s a ROFL emoji at the end of this title in case you are reading from an Android platform or something else.
I had no meat to make my konjac noodles. If you’re scared about these noodles, or think that you cannot eat them or cook them, have news for you. All you need to do is wash them and heat them up. It’s easier than making a box of macaroni and cheese. It also carries only 5 g of carbohydrates.
The Chicharrones (pork rinds/skins)
So, I used chicharrones in order to try my Alfredo experiment.
I chose the chicharrones that had the most fat in them,
but I apparently did not learn the lesson from the last time and I let the noodles cook in the fat of the pork rinds, and I almost burned everything.
So, in comes the heavy cream again.
And it all comes down to this: HELLO, BEAUTIFUL!
And the hidden heroes are: a dash of Badia and one cracked cube of BEEF bouillon
This is a rant/ journal entry so you are welcome to skip this and wait to a cooler post LOL, I’m just tracking my “progress.”
Month 3 – Barely denting it.
Going into the third month of this lifestyle, I have had ups and downs all together. All I can see changes in my body, and I have not needed one of my medications anymore.
The only frustrating thing has been that my scale does not drop 20 pounds in a short period of time. In fact, it dwindles. It comes up and down however it wants to. So I stopped caring about the numbers.
Miracles aren’t real. Neither are “miraclelites”
I am realizing now that three months is not even a fraction of what a lifestyle entails, so I am still starting out.
All I want is for my body to dissolve it’s own fat from within: the dangerous kind! Keto and Fatty Liver
I need to remember that the primary reason for this lifestyle, is for my body to read it self up the type of body fat that will cause future medical issues
and the dreadful fat that accumulates around your face as you age.
Then, there is the fact that a keto lifestyle makes it easier to eat because the unnecessary foods ( processed breads, chips, starchy potatoes, rice and pastas) can all be swapped for something more substantial and with actual nutritional value.
I don’t like the calorie counting and macros thing because I chose to continue to consume alcohol, but exercise can help with that. It is my responsibility to find an exercise that doesn’t hurt my knees. No excuses there.
