Taco Tuesday Keto Style

via Instagram

I decided to link up Instagram with Blogger for a while. We'll see how this works.

I get a lot of questions about what I eat.
I take a lot of pictures of what I eat.
Maybe I can recipe it out for interested parties.

Taco Tuesday Keto Style Taco Tuesday has been a staple in our family for years.
But how do you make a taco meal without beans, rice, and tortillas?
It's actually pretty easy.

Lettuce wraps I recommend romaine lettuce. Make sure you wash it first.
Green leaf and red leaf also work to a lesser extent. They just don't hold the way romain or even iceberg do.

Butter It also helps to add copious amounts of butter (or other fat) in the cooking process if you're keto.
Butter enhances the flavor and ups satiety.
When you add butter, you're full after 1 or 2 delicious keto tacos and not hungering for pesky rice and bean carbage.

Queso Frecso It also helps to add cheese. Pictured in this shot is fried queso frecso.

After frying up the ground beef, I …

A Day in the Life

Some you know along side low carb / keto, I also started dabbling in fasting. It's not something I recommend without doing due diligence.
Last night I stopped eating by 8 PM (for Game of Thrones). I finished a beer during it but it was a Michelb Ultra (does that even count?)
This morning I had a large cup of coffee with a single tablespoon of cocnut oil.
I've been refilling a 20 oz blender bottle a little more often than once an hour. With each fill, I add a pinch of lite-salt, a sodium potasium blend for electrolytes. In the past I also added stevia blend (or mio) for flavor.
Since 8 PM, I've had 120 Calories, I did a great workout for lunch. I'm kicking but at work with my project.
I have had a few discomforts in the stomach which in the past I'd mistake for hunger.
Later my stomach growled a few times. After about 15 minutes, it too passed.
I'm not down any weight from morning to lunch by a significant amount.
I'm hydrated. My workout was good. I'm …

Paneer Two Ways

I've been eating a lot of cheese on this keto diet.
And people have been asking me a lot of questions about keto at work.
We have a lot of people at work who eat Indian Food. Of course someone brought up saag paneer. It was in the stars!
Now, my wife and I love saag paneer. What's more,  it's the perfect keto recipe.

Just forget the bread (or naan) and you're in business!
So I found some local shops which carried paneer.
And made two meals
Saag Paneer
At the South Asian Grocery I went to, I picked up Miracle Marsala, Chile Paneer and a block of non creamy paneer. If you don't know which one, ask. It won't always be in English.
At home, I microwaved a bag of frozen spinach, then dropped in into a skillet, cooking it to reduce water.
While reducing, I greased another skillet and started to fry the paneer.
While frying the paneer, I added spice and cream to the spinach, tasting for flavor. It's flavorful!
Once the paneer was fried, I combined every…

Kinda Keto Fest July 2017

July we had a Kinda Keto get together. It was just an excuse to meet up, eat meat and cheese, and play games.
We also drank a few non keto beverages. That's why we're kinda.
It was a great day. Benny finally got to meet The Jets.


Anne Marie made this wonderful keto board (Ignore the pita chips).


Burgers grilled by me and offered with both bread and lettuce wrap options.


We even had a veggie tray with our two favorite veggies, sausage and cheese.


Once fed and the kids playing in the other room, we broke out with the games.
Cards Against Humanity is always a favorite


We even tried Betrayal at House on the Hill.


But we were being a little too social and not paying enough attention to give that game it's due.
So we switched to Hedbandz. Great time was had by all.



It even grabbed the attention of our youngest who demanded to bedelt in. I love the card he drew.

Ode to the Scramble Egg

We love eggs in our house.
Me, my wife, my kids. We are all fans.
So for breakfast, eggs get made. A lot.
One interesting thing I noticed. My kids, they are a ton more behaved, less wild, more ready to listen and respond when they have eggs. It's night and day compared to when they have cereal or sugury, carby breakfasts.
That in itself is a major win in my household.
Let's pay homage

Status Update

Hey Guys,
Sorry about the radio silence. Work's been crazy. 
And it'll continue being crazy until at least the end of August. I'll try to post something at least weekly. 
The thing is, I haven't been journaling neither.
But weights been okay. Last I measured it was 184.8 lbs. I'll share more about that in a later post.
I hope to get back into journaling, and blogging. I also want to start interviewing friends, I want the practice. Been dreaming about doing a podcast like thing. Literally dreaming. We'll see if it's in the cards. 

If you're interested, let me know. You don't have to be keto, just real. Let's get like a shoe and converse.
