  • What's your go to snack?

    When you've had one of those days and you're considering just gnawing on a frozen steak to avoid cooking it what do you have on hand to keep from turning to the 20%?

    Homemade broth, soup, chug some. Otherwise i turn to dairy, which I am trying to do less of, but 1/2 cottage cheese or Greek yogurt hits the spot for me, too. I am trying really hard to stay away from nuts right now...when I quit smoking, they kind of replaced the oral fixation..and 15 lbs later I am OFF nuts! lol..Dairy and all alcohol are next...Jeez..maybe I should go back to potato chips! Crunchy veggies help too, but until I can sink my teeth into some good meat and fat....I will struggle.

      In an ideal case I take a spoonful of coconut oil or two. Fat always helps, and if I'm already hungry / in keto, the MCTs give me a bit of a jump start to make some real food. I've also been known to nibble on the butter or take a spoonful of ghee.

      In less than ideal cases, whatever the hell I can find... raw bacon, almond butter, carrots, sometimes I'll eat a bell pepper like an apple. I do my best not to keep many snack-type foods around, so its really a matter of scrounging. If I keep things like jerky, nuts, etc in the house, I will justify them all too often.

        I cook a chicken once a week and make stock with the bones. I put the meat in once container and the broth in another. When I need a fast-food meal I heat the broth with frozen broccoli and then toss in a little of the chicken. Sometimes I'll add diced green onion or a little sesame oil. The rest of the chicken gets fed to my spoiled dog.

        Canned salmon or tuna with frozen peas are fast.

        Ground beef can cooked up pretty quickly and tossed over salad greens.

        I also usually make pulled pork once a week and keep it in the fridge for use on a diced avocado, salad greens, or just by itself in a pinch

              a can of tuna
              cottage cheese
              occasionally a nut butter

                Ham. I buy celery extract one (termed all-natural) and hope it's for the best. Lately, i have been partaking of eating small pieces of butter. cabbage with vinegar and coarse salt.

                        Pork cracklins. You can get 'em in practically any gas station, so if I'm suddenly feeling "stranded" and hungry, I stop and grab a bag to munch on.
