So it quickly went from 5 days to 1 month due to my lack of blogging. The official tally this morning was like 10.2 lbs lost. I can’t see any physical changes, but I *feel* so much better. It probably would have been more if my mental state didn’t go down the shitter. I get into ruts and literally nothing gets done except for an excessive amount of reading or tv/movie watching. BUT I’m trying to snap out of it. My ketoing, i believe, is kickstarting my hormones and i have a feeling my period is on the horizon. I haven’t had it since September of last year, when I first tried the keto diet. So anyway, it’s making me a raging bitch (more that usual), I’ve been COMPLETELY exhausted, and my cooking has suffered because of it. Hopefully this month I’ll even out some and be good to go. Also; need to drink more water ;x
So here’s a short run down of what I’ve been cooking up to this past month:
THESE. Good god, these. They were so moist and tasty and everything I could have wanted in a meatball. I made another set of them last night, but I doubled the batch because my boyfriend and brother were going to eat and I wanted some to throw in the freezer. But my boyfriend got too much chopmeat and I didn’t think it would be an issue, and I made them larger than normal so I wouldn’t have to do like 3 batches in the oven, so I think that’s why they weren’t as good as the first time. Lesson learned!! I will take the leftovers and make a spinach lasagne out of them for Easter..This recipe came from this awesome website. I get a lot of recipes from her, including her mashed “potatoes”.
These pizzas have been my saving grace. I tried 2 or 3 different pizza crusts; cheese, oopsie, and something else. They all failed miserably and I was really losing hope. I don’t know why it took me so long to take it back to kindegarten and make it on a tortilla. Mama Lupe’s to the rescue! I bought a bag of the Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles to try out for breakfast meals, but breakfast slowly became something I didn’t have time for (I ❤ sleep) so it’s been quite convenient to have it on hand for my pizzas 🙂 I still have like 1/4 of the bag left and it’s been a few weeks! Definitely going to buy again. ANYWAYS, when I’m not lazy I’ll coat the tortilla in a butter and garlic glaze before toasting them in the oven. YUMMYY. Now netrition just has to restock on the Mama Lupe’s cause I’m sadly all out 😦
Nothing makes me happier than a good broccoli and cheese soup, so I was so happy that it is one of those used to be guilty pleasures that I can now fully endulge on. This recipe was great. My mom and I couldn’t stop eating it. It also made packing my lunch very painless. I got the recipe off of reddit, I believe. I’m kicking myself now because I can’t find it again >.< BUT I want to make this recipe over the weekend, since I can make it in a crockpot. It can cook while I’m cooking all my other prep food for the week.
Since I’ll be home this weekend (as opposed to my boyfriend’s house), I am planning on doing alot of cooking, so I don’t have to do it during the weekend after work. So far I want to do the following:
There was an artichoke chicken my mom had liked… maybe i’ll turn that into a casserole. I doubt that’ll be able to be frozen, though. Maybe just a Sunday night dinner, then.
That’s it for now. I’m tired beyond all comprehension, and trying to stay awake at work is challenging.
Til next time!
