Food is fuel. I know this. I tell myself this several times a week.
I know when I fuel myself with foods that compliment my life…I feel like I could rule the world. And when I allow sugar, wheat, or too much alcohol to creep in…it is the complete opposite.
I like eating proteins, fats and veggies. I like drinking a lot of water. My body runs really smoothly that way. My workouts are better, my digestion is smooth, skin is clearer, sleep is deeper, mood is elevated, and I simply don’t have the achy joints that an autoimmune disease brings. (Looking at what I just typed I wonder how in the hell all those sour patch kids, bread and champagne made their way in to my house!)
I started a Facebook group about a month ago and it has been so supportive. We are from different backgrounds, and all have different reasons, but all eating keto-ish. The support, the recipes, and the accountability makes this group lots of fun. PM me if you want to be added!
Here is a look at a few of my go-to meals…
Most mornings I am lucky enough to sit down and eat with my kids before they are off to school. (I absolutely cherish that time!)
Spinach-feta crustless quiche, with a side of coffee with heavy whipping cream.
2 boiled eggs with salt and pepper. Coffee with heavy whipping cream.
2 eggs over medium, 1/2 small avocado and coffee with HWC.
When I am on the go…I grab a protein shake. These are my favorite pre-mixed brands. (My favorite powders are Quest and Plexus 96)
Lunch time is usually leftovers, meals I prepped ahead of time, or I go out with friends!
Leftover Proposal Roast with green beans.
Tuscan Salmon with creamed spinach.
ChickFilA with my kiddos. I get the Cobb salad and ask for my grilled nuggets instead of fried. And I love their avocado lime ranch dressing!
I love going to Reid’s and getting a big salad! I went for bib lettuce, grilled tenderloin, feta, bacon, boiled eggs, and pine nuts.
We are eat at home kind of people for the most part. There are days that dinner time is our only family time!
Grilled burger and kale/cabbage slaw. (and a dill pickle!)
Dinner out at Viva Chicken. I always get the stuffed avocado…it is sooooo good! I switch out the quinoa for feta.
Bacon Wrapped Shrimp. CLICK HERE for the recipe!
I love making a big batch of soup or chili for dinner. Then we have tons of leftovers! Having lunch ready when I am working at home is so easy and Daniel packs his lunch for work everyday. A few nights during the week, my family has “whatever” night. We all just grab what we want and sit down together!
I would love to hear from you….
What are your go to meals?
