Well fine then, I'll keep chugging it.
Honestly, I don't even think I've had a vegetable since January.
I just haven't been craving them AT ALL.
BUT! Now that my husband is on board, and he's just doing VLC, I did
buy a lot of lettuces from Costco last week, and we cooked up 28 dollars
worth of tri-tip last night.....
Nuthin' tastes better than tri-tip on salad with a mixture of
salsa and some sesame oil. TO DIE FOR. Odd combo, but damn
tasty.. so maybe this will be my week for minimal veggie consumption.
Odd, cuz I usually LOVE veggies, ALL OF THEM, but since going keto, I don't
even give them a second thought.
All righty, fine, off to drink my darn water. I guess with my activity level I need
it, but still., don't wanna.
Pouting like a 3yo,
p.s. your eggless egg salad sounds divine! and i happen to have some
left over bacon from the weekend, so thanks for the tip!
We love our avocados but I was worried about them having a higher carb rating. It seems to be just about all fiber carbs but wasn't sure if that still counts when trying to go keto??!!??!!
I came up with a good wrap idea for lunch. 2 Romaine lettuce leaves, a slice of deli turkey and deli ham and colby pepperjack cheese with a schmear of garden vegetable cream cheese. Really made my day.

Fiber carbs do not effect blood sugar and therefore do not count against your keto carb count. Enjoy!
Out of 18 carbs in one whole avocado, only 4 are non fiber.
All this talk of avocados, so I have to share my all time fave recipe I've ever found:
3 Avocados halved - rub lightly with a lemon wedge to prevent browning
1/2-1 slice bacon crumbled on top of each half
in a small saucepan on low heat add:
2 tbsps Balsamic Vinegar
2-3 cloves garlic - minced
Stir and bring to a rolling boil, then spoon over avocado halves.
It is to die for, I literally crave it, lol!
But I don't know if it's okay for doing NK..... going to have to check that out!
As long as your vinegar doesn't have sugar in it. Some do.
I asked this over in Recipes but I think we've talked about homemade mayo here too. I understand that if you add some whey, that can be drained from yogurt, to the mayo, after it's made, and then let it sit on the counter for several hours, it greatly extends it's "shelf-life". Could the liquid that forms on the top of sour cream be whey, and if so, could I use that instead?
Sorry, not sure. I make my own mayo, but don't add whey. I use my batch within a week.
I dont know the answer either. I also make my own mayo but not had any problem with it spoiling. I believe i posted a link to the "egg board" or something like that and it had info on how long a mayo would last. If i was worried i would make a smaller batch or use pasteurized eggs. But besides using it for my avocado salad i also make homemade salad dressings so it gets used up.
[QUOTE=Pebbles67;1128074]Soooo, I just gave the Keto Calculator another chance. [url=http://keto-calculator.ankerl.com/]Keto Calculator[/url] It really is a good tool. I like how it gives you so much info.
When I input my new macros. 75%f/20%p/5%c 117g/70g/18g with 1400cals, it tells me that I will have hit my goal of 165lbs and under 20%BF by 9/24/2013. That date is my 3 year Primal Anniversary.:D[/QUOTE]
Sorry - I'm a little behind on this thread so pardon if this topic has slid to the wayside.
I've been gone for a couple weeks - just needed to take a breather from the intense tracking! but, I'm ready to get back to it now. I've just looked at the Keto Calculator - and if this is correct - I need to be eating more protein. I've been trying to stay around 65, but according to this I need to be closer to 85. I'm going to give it a try and see what happens. My goals will be 40 grams of carbs, 85 grams protein and 85 grams fat.
How does that sound?
