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 reserved it in a container. I then added cubed chunks of queso fresco to the same pan with the leftover fat still in it.

It was awesome!

I can't even describe the flavor in words it was so good!

Creama

I never like sour cream growing up. I like sour everything else, but sour cream, not a fan.
But it's starting to grow on me. I know it has macros which benefit my goals. And there's many other Creams out there, similar to Sour Cream but without the sour. Which I'm grateful for.

Guacamole

I went the east route on this batch. Mashed avocado blended with salsa, the same salsa the guacamole is next to in the picture.
Add onion powder, garlic powder, peppers to taste with this.
The thing is, everything is so flavorful, you don't need to hit it out of the park.

Good enough is great in this case,

True8 March

Recently I had the honor of joining Josiah Novak's True8 March. I want to share my experiences. But first, Let's back up. There's a super hero origin story in the works which puts the rest into perspective.
100 pounds ago (heavier), I was looking for ways to get my health under control. By chance, I'm came across The Model Health Show by Shawn Stevenson. It changed my life in many ways. Along the journey I was introduced to Larry Hagner. He runs the The Good Dad Project podcast. Another aspect in my life which needed work was my parenting skills. I started following Larry and joined his Dad's Edge group.
It was in that group I discovered Josiah Novak. 
Josiah Now Josiah's words resonated with me. Over the past year, I developed a relationship with health. I could tell he shared many of the same values I discovered. It was inspiring, because I could see myself in him in about a year. Father, friend of the community, passionate about health, fitness, life. We sy…

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. 





Dogmatic Diets

Try not to get too dogmatic with your diet. Like snowflakes, we are all similar but unique. Your best bet is to journal your way and listen to what your body tells you.
20 grams of carbs is just a starting point. Protein in grams to lean mass weight is just a starting weight.
Start there, then experiment. Get interested. Be a case study of 1. Learn to ask a lot of questions. Take all the answers with a grain of salt. Pink Himalayan Salt. Take everything with salt. You need the electrolytes.

And... of course, above all else, don’t forget to… 
Keep Calm and Keto On.
