What do I do when I need to feed the sweet tooth?
What do I do when I just got back from the gym and and it is late and I must satisfy my sweet tooth?
I eat strawberries and whip cream obviously!!!!!
Just like most fruits on Keto (and generally all foods on any diet) moderation and portion size is the key to happiness!
1/4 cup of strawberries has about 2-3 grams of net carbs and about 2 grams of sugars.
They are an amazing treat that is necessary to make it in the long run! Food should still be fun and tasty! Just control the portions… Except with the whip cream of course! With less than 1 gram of carbs per serving you can go nuts with that!!!!
The 5th day and the beginning of a new challenge!
The journey continues as the first work week ends. The true challenge of the weekend is upon us! Tonight I was victorious with a keto classic of Ahi Tacos! Sometimes it pays to live in a harbor town where you can have fresh fish frequently!
When I say genius I am not kidding! This is the best thing to happen to the sandwich since sliced bread (shoot! Thay actually made sense). It isn’t a lettuce wrap but it is still a keto sandwich! Find out how!
I cannot claim credit for this marvel. My lovely girlfriend made these! The idea is simple… How do you make a keto sandwich, because let’s face it, I used to live off of sandwiches (thus the need for drastic life change). But so much of a sandwich is good:
Mustard – nothing wrong there
Lunch meats – OK maybe not the best but definitely not bad, especially since I love turkey
A slice of cheese – not bad in reasonable quantities
Some lettuce/tomato/onion/peppers – not only ‘not bad’ but actually really good for you
So I ask: Where does a sandwich go wrong?
You’re smart so I am sure you have guessed it, especially since this is a Keto thing!
Bread: So useful to keep all that good stuff in line, but not the greatest thing to eat consistently! That is where my love struck pure keto genius: Cut a bell pepper in half and use that!
It is so simple and so elegant! I cannot believe I never thought of it before! Not only does it add a satisfying CRUNCH to your sandwich, but I freaking love bell peppers too!!! It’s a win-win for sure! Anyway, today was day 4 of the new regiment! I went to the gym and maintained my diet goals!
I am serious about getting to a healthier and happier state of being!
It is no secret that dieting is not easy! How do you stick with it?
The real question is: How do you spoil yourself while on Keto? Because, let us be honest, no matter the diet you are on food should always be fun!! Eating just to survive sounds lame!
This is how I spoil myself:
I know what you are thinking… But Speedo Dude, we are not made of money! And I say neither am I but Sashimi is something that I am willing to spend my hard earned dollars on! Especially since my girlfriend demands it of me 😜!
