    a gallon of olive oil to a recipe for shits
    is right! I don't think even my fat-awesome tract could nab every bit as it flew through. I'd be on the throne awhile!
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    It's a great side dish, especially for nutritional ketosis. 1/6 of the recipe, according to the spark recipe calculator, has 446 calories, 41 grams of fat, 10.2 net carbs, 10.9 grams of protein. 83% of the calories are from fat, which is ideal for NK. A small serving, of course, is the right idea!

    Holy crap, that's a lot of olive oil. I love fat, but I would have cut the oil down to 2 tablespoons and done half the cheese. It's okay to substitute a cheese you like better, too. Cream cheese and sharp cheddar would make a nice blend, perhaps with some fresh parmesan.

    That recipe would have cleaned me right out.

    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    "so rich I could only eat a small portion" - that's the idea I guess, eat only a small portion, be sated, be happy and healthy!

    I made this last week and yeah, the recipe calls for way too much of everything. I only used half the amount of goat cheese (on a large spaghetti squash) and just used my own judgement on the butter/oil, and it was still too rich. I'm not fat phobic, this recipe is just excessive. Great flavor combos, so I'll probably make it again but with a quarter of what's called for.
