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.

  • Cheam
  • Cheese
  • Spinach
  • Spice

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 everything, grease and all, and mixed it together.

After reducing down the mix a little more, I added even more spice and it was good to go.

Oh my god was that a meal!



Cauliflower Paneer


The thing was with the saag paneer was, I had half a block left.

I also had a bag of frozen cauliflower. This will also work with brocli and likely be even more photogenic.

I fist microwaved the cauliflower.

Once microwaved, I dumped the cauliflower into a skillet with melted butter. then I proceeded to saute it in a butter bath with Indian spices.

While the cauliflower was sauteing, I started to fry up the remaining paneer.


After the paneer was ready, I combined everything in one skillet and added spice to taste. It was tasty.

Crazy Comparison

Last month I was doing an amazing job on keto.
I lowered my weekly average of carbohydrates from the first month. I raised fat up to where my protein level was and eventually surpassed it
It was a great time and I could tell it was working for me.
Little did I know what was going to happen in month 3.
Month 3
For month 3, I decided to trust fat more.
I did that by keeping carbohydrates around 20.Limiting protein to around 70g.And relying on fat to get me through the rest.
I soon realized I was going to need to supplement fat so I decided to do this with Bullet Proofing Coffee and Tea
In the beginning, it was a rocky start. I wasn't so sure I could pull this off. My first Bullet Proofing ended up a failure. I wrote about it here.
But I didn't give up
As a result, I now have two recipes Morning Proof CoffeeOffice Proof Coffee
I also have some interesting pictures to share.

Half Birthday

I love what I wrote today in my journal. I’m going to share it with you.
Do you journal? It’s awesome. Sure, it’s awkward in the beginning but it’s gold long term. You can find So much value writing your thoughts.
One awesome result is you can go back through your life and pick up gems you completely forgot about.
That’s what this entry was about. It’s too great to keep to myself.
I hope you enjoy it.

Hey look! It’s my Half Birthday.
So far, I’ve persevered every time against anxiety. Why does it still trouble me? Why am I still so afraid?
May we remain joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer, always.
Anything worth doing is not a one-step journey.
Stay mindful of your goal.
Things to ask yourself:
Is deviating from your goal worth it?
Will you regret deviating tomorrow? Will you regret it in 5 minutes?
Is the deviation a new experience? Then consider the deviation. New, non-mundane experiences are worth it for the story.
Is it a special occasion? Sometimes the health…

Stairs 2017

In the beginning of 2016, I had the crazy idea to get into shape.  So, since I didn't have any free time nor a place to spend the nonexistent time... I decided walking the stairs was a great idea. Coworkers were doing it, it'll be fun. We'll get to walk and talk, and bond. Maybe I could even make a friend or two! Until I realized I could climb 3 floors without wanting to fall over and pant for air. I was that out of shape.  I was so embarrassed. An Army Veteran, couldn't even scale 3 floors without needing a rest. 
In this post last year I get more into detail about the experience and how I overcame it. I want to say it was quick and easy but it took a lot of work.  But... the work was worth it because now I can do crazy cool things in the same stair well. 
I want to share one with you.
