Now that the climate is getting nicer, I’ve been selecting eating places with an outside patio anytime I can. This meal was from a favourite little native spot – a Greek/Italian place, no much less!
They have a lovely 12oz Delmonico Ribeye on the menu although, with roasted broccoli & cauliflower, and recent crisp aspect salads.
It’s HUGE so this all the time makes two meals for me.:)
I’m making an attempt to recollect what Aaron had that night time, as a result of he eats keto too however he doesn’t eat beef or pork. I feel the identical besides grilled hen as an alternative of steak, smothered in mushrooms & swiss if I keep in mind proper.
Speaking of Aaron, he did NOT just like the Cashew Crunch Flax Crackers I acquired in two of the March Keto Boxes. I really like them! Which is humorous, as a result of he has appreciated each different model/taste of Flax crackers I’ve gotten – and I’ve NOT, lol.
Which means: I didn’t need to share these two full luggage of them. 🙂
They’ve lasted me awhile as a result of the Cashew Crunch Flax Crackers are four internet carbs for a 28 gram serving, so I solely eat them sparsely.
They have been scrumptious with Pecan Pie Almond Butter on them. 🙂
It’s just one internet carbs per TBSP.
For probably the most half, Aaron and I eat very a lot alike and have comparable style preferences (beef, pork and Cashew Crunch Flax Crackers apart!) which makes issues straightforward.
Sometimes he’ll decide up one thing new for us to attempt, and most just lately it was this Earthly Choice Coffee Flour. You can click on on the image to see the nutrition label.
It’s 2 internet carbs for a 2 TBSP serving, so somewhat greater than my Almond Flour which is three internet carbs for four TBSP (1/four cup), however not by a lot – 1 internet carb distinction.
Anyway, I examined it out with one among my favourite low carb recipes for Low Carb Muffins made with nut butter. Besides turning out a bit of darker than regular, and having a really slight espresso taste (which I really like!), the espresso flour labored lovely within the recipe!
Another nice keto restaurant meal Aaron and I had on a current date was this blackened atlantic salmon at O’Charley’s – which is persistently scrumptious!
I had a aspect caesar salad with no croutons, grilled asparagus and loaded broccoli with my salmon. That was sufficient for 2 meals too. 🙂
If you haven’t tried “Loaded Broccoli” but… it is best to!
Another enjoyable discover from Aaron: Green Giant Italian Cheese Riced Cauliflower.
And it has the identical carb rely because the common, plain cauliflower rice. 🙂
They tacky cauliflower rice was DELICIOUS!
We cooked it with Pili Nuts, which added a pleasant buttery-soft crunch, and ate it over a mattress of recent baby spinach.
Fast, straightforward 10 minute low carb meal – that can also be vegetarian pleasant. 🙂
The Hunter Gatherer Pili Nuts are the one model I eat, by the best way. They have been the unique and first firm to convey Pili Nuts to market within the United States, and they’re nonetheless wild harvesting their Pili Nuts from nutrient wealthy volcanic soil within the Philippines.

Grilled hen & Pili Nuts cooked in butter, over a mattress of recent baby spinach with avocado slices on the aspect. Perfect!;)
When I’ve recent baby spinach in the home, I are likely to eat it with virtually each meal.
One of my favourite fast & straightforward keto meals is fried eggs on baby spinach – this time with slightly cheese sprinkled on prime.
I prepare dinner the eggs over-medium in a full TBSP of actual butter, then drizzle what’s left of the melted butter over my spinach – then prime it with the eggs.
When I’m not within the temper for eggs, tuna salad is a superb choice too!
My tuna salad is straightforward: mayo, mustard & dill relish. That’s it. 😉
When I’m consuming alone, which is commonest, I are likely to maintain it actually easy just like the fried eggs or tuna salad over spinach.
Or my current kick: pan fried pork chops! 🙂
I’ve by no means been capable of prepare dinner pork proper – till I found out these breakfast chops. Now I’m hooked!
I simply fry them on HIGH in a non stick skillet, in a full TBSP of actual butter. I flip them and brown them on each side, and they’re completely finished and tender – juicy with crispy fats. Yum!!!
I often get them in a pack of 4 chops, about four ounces per chop, and I can eat two at a time often – typically three.
Whatever is leftover, I eat chilly out of the fridge. 🙂
I’ve additionally been having fun with that huge bag of zero carb frozen sausage I discovered just lately.
I warmth it within the microwave by the instructions, then pan fry it on all sides for a minute or so too.
It’s (surprisingly!) the perfect sausage I’ve ever eaten. 🙂

Which made for an ideal “breakfast taco” the subsequent day. 😉
Speaking of leftovers, I had some leftover steamed spinach. I made a decision to make cheese chips one night time to take pleasure in whereas watching a film – and added the leftover spinach to them.

Pecans are a favourite as a result of they’re very excessive fats and low carb, and I really like the Laughing Cow creamy swiss wedges to dip them in.

I eat my favourite “low carb cereal” virtually every day, in fact.
It’s often: 1/2 cup pecan items, 1/four cup Daisy model four% cottage cheese, four small strawberries and 18 grams of blueberries.
That comes to five internet carbs and 85% healthy fats – good LCHF macros!
Sometimes I get slightly “wild” with it and add cinnamon – or on this case I drizzled it with ChocZero sugar free white chocolate and turned it right into a healthy dessert. 🙂
I hold strawberries and blueberries within the freezer year-round, and often have some variation of my traditional low carb staples: pecans, berries, cream cheese, and so forth.

If you ask me it tastes like peanut butter pie, or PB&J pie. 🙂
The cream cheese I exploit is Philadelphia 5 Simple Ingredients, which is half a carb per ounce as an alternative of two carbs per ounce like most cream cheese.
That means I can take pleasure in cream cheese much more! ♥

Speaking of, I simply ordered extra of their High-Waisted Shorts…
I obtained three pair final yr that are nonetheless in like-new form, although I’ve worn them A LOT. I’m impressed with how nicely they’ve held up!! 🙂
