Keto-ing Mid Week and Noticeable Changes
As I got up this morning I noticed that I looked a little bit leaner in front of the mirror. At yesterday's weigh in, I had also dropped some weight, only another 1 lb, but a positive change nonetheless. Now you may think that 1 lb in a week isn't much, but given Good Friday and Easter I'll take it. I'm definitely on the right track.
As I've continued into the second week of this diet I've noticed I needed to improve my recipes, so I have. I'm becoming particularly fond of "eggs and bacon with avocado and olives salad," So let me tell you about that. It includes:
- 2 organic eggs – fried
- 2 slices of bacon – fried
- 1 whole avocado
- a whole bunch of black olives
- a chopped lettuce base
- shredded cheese
I like to cook it in the morning to save for lunch later in the day. To prepare, I start by cooking the bacon in a frying pan. After I get a little bit of bacon grease forming I crack the eggs and cook them with the bacon so they can soak up some of the bacon fat.
While that is cooking I also start chopping up some lettuce. When that is done, I split an avocado in half, removing the nut. This is a lot easier if I let them ripen a day or two after buying them from Big Y, the local grocery store of the great folk of Tolland.
After putting the lettuce and cheese into a bowl, I pour the bacon grease that remains along with accompanying bacon and eggs into the bowl. On top of that I take a spoon and spoon out the avocado on top. Finally, I chop up some black olives and put them on. To mix it, I chop it up inside the bowl. Below is the result:
I find that I don't need any salad dressing with this as the avocado and olives give a naturally good flavor while providing all the healthy fats I need. Anyways, that is about it for this post, so thanks for stopping by and I hope you found what you were looking for. Maybe I even inspired you to make your own Keto meal.
