Low carb chips & guac! Helloooo new favorite snack!

Low carb chips & guac! Helloooo new favorite snack!

Photoset

Better late than never! My $50 haul from H-E-B, who definitely wins the award for cheapest groceries near me. Sadly their dairy free/gluten free section is lacking, so I’ll have to go to Whole Foods/Trader Joe’s occasionally. 

$50 bought me:

  • Thin-Sliced Rib-eye (4 servings at least)
  • Rack of Pork Ribs
  • Pack of Chicken Breasts
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Baby Bella mushrooms
  • Two Avocados + Guacamole Mix
  • Mayo
  • BBQ sauce (for the ribs!)
  • Jar of Olives
  • Dried Papaya (not keto or low carb, just a guilty pleasure)

Which is at -least- 10 meals, probably more. So we’re talking meat at every meal for less than $5/a meal. 

Also pictured, my dinner last night. Ribeye marinated with teriyaki and chili oil, roast brussels sprouts and sauteed portabella mushrooms.

Anonymous said: Have you ever spoken to a doctor or a nutritionist about the keto diet? I'm curious to what they may have said. If so has it negatively effect your blood work or health?

I have! I’m a RN so I tend to talk to physicians quite frequently in regards to my personal health (kinda creepy, but beneficial, in a sense). Many physicians aren’t knowledgeable in regards to the keto diet, or nutrition in general, so chances of them actually thinking about the keto diet in a good light is slim to none. So you have to do something based on your own research as chances of a health professional being well versed in nutrition is just as reliable as a magazine.

I actually spoke with my OB/GYN about it when I first started (the only Dr. I was going to at the time), and she said, “Low Carb is the ONLY way to go!”  (yes, that is a direct quote). So, some do their homework … but not all by a long shot! 

But, regardless, you should do your own research, read books, read studies, make up your own mind about EVERYTHING! You should never take what doctor says at face value. Remember that someone has to be ‘last in their class’ to graduate, barely squeaking by with a C- !! It might be the doctor sitting across from you! I always assume it is until proven otherwise.

I have to add to this that my PCOS-specific doctor approves highly of low-carb, but the nutritionist at the same clinic was shocked and appalled at my keto lifestyle. She also wanted me to drink more low-fat dairy and said nothing about soy, so…grain of salt when you’re talking to people. Get a bunch of opinions, listen to your body!

Hey Guys! Happy Friday!! I’m not the kind of person who preaches one diet over another. We are all different! 
However, I have been finding that eating a mostly (emphasis on mostly) Keto diet has completely changed my weight loss and my body. I’m no longer bloated, I no longer have cravings, and I’m losing consistently.

Hey guys - I don’t like to do this, but! If you need any logo or graphic design work, illustration, etc., whatever you need - please consider me! I need to make some money while I’m in between degree and full-time job, and my rates are very reasonable!

Hey you guys! How about a Monday night promo thingy?
Reblog this post and put on your post your guess of HOW MANY JAZZERCISE SHIRTS YOU THINK I HAVE. I can tell you that this above doesn’t even SCRATCH THE SURFACE!  I honestly don’t even know, BUT I will count them!
The person/people who guess the closest to the actual number get a screenshot promo to just under 3k dashes, and I’ll check out your blog, if I’m not already following you.
You don’t have to be following me, but would love it if you’d check my blog out too!
I’ll let this run until 11pm EST (about 4 hours from now) and then see who the winner(s) are! Okay?
GREAT! GO!!

Derped the first time. Still 42. :D

You can whip Almond Milk!!

Since I went dairy free and back to low-carb, I already miss whipped heavy cream. APPARENTLY you can add Xantham Gum to Almond Milk with a little like, vanilla or something, and whip that fucker up. 

Gonna make strawberry shortcake tomorrow morning for breakfast with the leftover donuts, whipped almond milk, and some strawberries! HELL YEAH
