While Keto is treating me well from a meal planning and meal enjoyment perspective, I find I’m really struggling to stay in ketosis. Our big system upgrade happened last weekend, and between the prep, the aftermath, and the one giant FUBAR that had me pulling an all-nighter Wednesday night, staying strict enough on the diet this week wasn’t really an option. So, I compromised, sliding over to Paleo, and maybe a little beyond when a no-added-sugar hard cider sounded like a really good idea. But all in all, I’m holding fairly steady, and that’s not bad, considering.
This week, I made some new keto friendly dishes and revisited the Quiche Lorraine from a few weeks ago, since E.J. didn’t get a chance to enjoy it the first time. First we had some folks over for dinner last night and served sausage with keto coleslaw and this Loaded Cauliflower which got rave reviews.
Then for lunches this week, I made this Keto Meatloaf recipe that uses pork rinds as a binder… who would have guessed? Then I made this Deconstructed Pizza Casserole recipe and this Easy Cashew Chicken.
I’m actually really looking forward to our lunches this week now, and hopefully I’ll be able to slide back into ketosis again when things calm down a bit.
