Final push to use up the superfood meatballs! I crumbled them and sautéed w/ mushrooms, scallions, spinach, and tomatoes. Put on a low carb wrap w/ guac and dipped some jicama in xtra guac for a #lchf tasty and quick meal!
Another way to eat my batch of superfood meatballs posted by @perfectketones ! On a salad w/ cukes, local mini peppers, broccoli - alfalfa sprouts and @daiyafoods cheese and topped w/ dairy free Ceasar dressing!
Avocado toast on my low carb 90 second microwave bread! woke up not very hungry today so rolled w/ it and ended up fasting 16 hours. My fasts are typically unplanned and only when I’m truly not hungry. It made the toast taste all that much better!! 💚🥑
Lunch was superfood meatballs by @perfectketones which have shallot, carrot, herbs and a mix of grass-fed beef and chicken livers. Yes liver! Organ meats have SO many minerals and micronutrients but I find it hard to eat straight. I only liked them in pate but now I found a new favorite! These r awesome. You grind up the livers in a food processor and then into the ground beef. They are super yum!! Love them over spaghetti squash w/ veggies and just a little red sauce and EVOO! Give it a try!
Leftover low carb lasagna w/ 90 sec microwave low carb garlic bread! The bread was so good I made 4 to freeze. Next post will have recipe for the breads! I think I found a combo I like better than one I’ve made previously. I love recipe experimentation!
Proud of you @axamanproject 💪🏻

@sugarfiresmokehouse (again 😂). This time had to try their grass-fed blended burger w/ a mix of chuck, brisket, and boneless short rib! Bun-less of course.
It was pretty tasty but the beef brisket is still my favorite. But had to try something new!
Fluffy eggs and 1/2 a @mikeys cinnamon raisin low carb English muffin! Served up w/ my Keto coffee (not pictured). This combo of eggs and my fatty coffee (w/ collagen powder) always keeps me satisfied until lunch w/ no desire to snack! I think I need lots of protein in the morning.
Hotel keto! Ha! Brought my own low carb no-oatmeal (just add hot water and unsweetened almond milk). Topped w/ macadamia nuts. The hotel coffee was so bad I made the #starbucksvia instant coffee and mixed in collagen and a @bulletproof single MCT oil pack best I could. Not pretty but got the job done and I feels satisfied.
Some easy fat bombs I recently made up. Going to try and refine the recipe and then blog this one.
Consists of sunflower and almond butters, cacao butter, chia seeds, flax seeds, maca powder, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts and salt. Just dropped on a cookie sheet and refrigerated. They soften if left out of the fridge but hold up well if eaten straight from the fridge.
I’m usually pretty lazy about making fat bombs and just mix up a single serving at a time if I want one but these were nice to have on hand.
@wholefoodsstl #brownbox w/ roasted chicken, bok choy, roasted purple cauliflower (SO good) and an arugula salad w/ egg, bacon, cabbage, olives and a few cubes of roasted beets. Topped w/ seeds, lemon juice and EVOO.
I haven’t made this zucchini noodle, dairy free lasagna in a long time but it’s SO good. I first tried it when I embarked on my first @cleanprogram cleanse about 7 years ago.
Tho I’m eating Keto now, I still incorporate a lot of the recipes and ways of eating after using their cleanse program to eliminate common food allergens and the reintroduce them to ID trigger foods.
I added chicken thigh to this recipe to up the protein quota. This cashew cheese recipe is the bomb! I need to make it more often and put on some low carb noodles or roasted veggies! Yum!! Link: https://blog.cleanprogram.com/vegetable-lasagna
Oh matcha latte why did I stop drinking you lately in exchange for coffee?! How I’ve missed you! 💚
In an effort to at least reduce my caffeine I’m going to try and alternate coffee and matcha days. And, planning to cut my coffee beans w/ half decaf. Trying to start w/ no more than one in a.m. and one additional caffeinated beverage in the afternoon (I love an afternoon tea). Trying to set some boundary’s and goals on this and stop relying on caffeine to get me thru the day!
Grassfed sirloin served up w/ some roasted cabbage and cauliflower rubbed w/ olive oil and simply seasoned w/ S&P.
I almost forgot how good roasted cabbage is!
I dipped my cauliflower in @primalkitchenfoods Chipotle Lime Mayo cause it just makes everything taste that much better! And b/c...fat! 😉
Haven’t had a smoothie in a while so this hit the spot!
1 cup full fat coconut milk
Handful ice cubes
2 handfuls spinach
3 chucks zucchini
1 Tbsp almond butter
1 Tbsp hemp hearts
1 Tbsp whole flax seeds
1 tsp maca powder
1 Tbsp blueberries
3 small strawberries
1 scoop protein powder
My bacon got a little too crispy and my eyes were bigger than my stomach (couldn’t even finish it all) but you can never go wrong w/ #baconandeggs
Oh, and @mikeys onion English muffin! 👍🏼
Ready to ride! 🚵🏻♀️
“Keto Super Shrimp” by @omgketobecky
WOW! These were so simple yet flavorful. I used uncooked shrimp and it’s still such a quick meal. I also used garlic scapes in place of the garlic and it worked really well. I served mine up w/ some sautéed zucchini. Yum! 🍤
Thanks for a great recipe!
Breaking my 17 hour fast w/ this fantastic salad! The fast felt so easy this time. I never force one. I eat if I’m hungry but after my carb cycles it comes naturally.
Loaded this up w/ mixed greens, heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, refrigerator pickles, hard boiled egg, broccoli sprouts, avocado, leftover salmon and roasted veggies and topped w/ homemade dressing. Yum!!
Drinking my coffee black this morning as I’m fasting until lunch after two days of carb cycling.
My leptin levels tested low so trying to equalize via strategic carb cycling.
So interesting that after being fat adapted for over 9 months, even 2 days of higher carbs (80-90 g/day) doesn’t really affect me at all. In fact it helps my cravings and hunger levels. But this makes sense due to carbs boosting leptin levels.
@alimillerrd has helped me learn so much more about healing my body! Much thanks!
Topped this summer salad w/ some rotisserie chicken and homemade dressing for a quick dinner.
The white stuff is jicama. I love the sweetness and crunch and at only 5 net carbs for a whole cup, it’s very keto/low carb friendly. I often use it as my “chip” for guacamole! It’s loaded w/ potassium and fiber! Give it a try sometime.
One skillet meal - fried up some local pork sausage, removed from pan, added some fat then sautéed cabbage and cauliflower w/ garlic and scallions. Added cherry tomatoes at end and covered a few mins until warm.
Simple foods are so good!
Reverse seared this local grassfed ribeye! Only my 3rd time trying reverse searing a steak and I have to say - it’s the best tasting method! I just wish I always had the time. Look at that fat! Soooo freakin awesome.
Served up w/ some sautéed chard from @fairsharesccsa and quick pickled some cukes from the garden.
The Block grassfed burger topped w/ farmhouse egg. Skipped cheese, bun and fries and subed grilled broccoli.
Apps of flash fried Brussels sprouts and sausage. Everything was cooked perfectly and it was an amazing night for eating outside! Great food and high quality meats every time @theblockstl !!
Low carb collagen zucchini muffins by @alimillerrd
The banana added just a hint of sweetness w/o non-caloric sweeteners (which I’ve been trying to minimize lately). These have very Keto friendly macros and the perfect muffin consistency. I used 5 eggs, vanilla extract instead of almond and about 1/4 cup of tigernut flour in place of some almond flour b/c I was short. Still worked beautifully. Thx Ali for a great muffin recipe! Perfect for a Sat morning!
What I love about a Whole Foods based approach to Keto is that there is no “failing” or “falling off the diet”. If u slip one day, you just pickup the next day and get back to your low carb approach. It’s not a diet, it’s a sustainable lifestyle and one that has helped me heal my body in ways I couldn’t imagine.
I think Keto sounds intimidating to folks but it’s super simple if you eat a #wholefoodsketo diet. Fat, Veggies, Meat! It’s really that simple. And what is there to loose by trying? Some nagging health issues? Those hangry episodes? Crazy hormone issues? Low energy slumps after meals?
Since going Keto I’m even down to HALF my thyroid medicine dose!
Maybe it can help you too. But you will never know unless u try!
Chicken and veggie fajitas topped w/ guac. This is how I do #ketomexicanfood tho today I felt the need to partake in a handful of chips as well. Not sure if that was the issue but my digestion is totally off since this meal. Meh. Should have stayed strong. Usually I sneak in my own pork rinds for chips but I was unprepared. Such is travel.
I did climb over 3,000 ft on my bike today tho. So I’ll just make tomorrow a new day. 😊
Keto Grain-free Hemp Heart Porridge by @healthfulpursuit
Topped mine w/ blueberries, almond butter and cacao nibs!
Such an easy #ketotravel food or even #ketobackpacking food! Sometimes I put a single serving in a baggie and just add hot water for an easy breakfast at work - it doesn’t really need to boil, just add hot water and let sit for a few mins to thicken.
Post-ride recovery. Almond milk, 1 scoop @perfectketones Vanilla Keto Collagen, 1 scoop @vitalproteins Collagen Peptides (more more protein), a splash of leftover coffee from this morning and some ice! SO yummy.
Also a pic of some slick rock I climbed that totally kicked my butt but was really beautiful and fun to ride! Unfortunately I was going up, not down! 😂🚵🏻♀️
I am learning to appreciate and enjoy my food because let’s be honest, most people in our world don’t have access to rich, healthy, nourishing foods. 🥗
We are so rich, y’all, we have 2 cars, a house, and the knowledge to eat healthy food that fuels our body! That’s richer than 99% of the world! 😳
So God is showing me instead of rushing and eating my food fast, I should chew longer, savor the food, enjoy cooking it, and be super grateful for being able to nourish and fuel my family well. 🙌🏻💪🏻🧠 We are the sickest country in the world, we spend the most money on healthcare in the world but still the sickest 🧐☹️ So let’s start with diet. Honestly how many Drs first ask what you eat? I bet 9/10 don’t, but the root cause starts with food.
Choose whole, nutrient dense food
Have fat, veggies, protein on your plate.
It’s not just what but how you eat, eat and he’s slowly being thankful for that food. And animal died and a farmer spent time and money to grow that food.
