Cheating

Eating only 12 foods is really hard.  I have to be really prepared, and I have complained a little almost every night at dinner.  I admitted that I had some of that homemade Tennessee ice cream a few posts back.

Here are a few other little cheats that happened…

I admitted to licking the knife the first day of this challenge.  I’ve licked the knife a few more times.  I may have also eaten this by the spoonful. It is amazing and tastes like the peanut butter that is in Reese’s cups.

My daughter and I caught a movie last week, and I was having one of those hunger emergencies.  I figured I’d let her and all the theatre employees not die a slow death, so I bought some popcorn.  You can make popcorn work on a keto diet if you add the extra butter.  I promise…my percentages were on point even after this small popcorn!

We had our monthly supper club on Friday–this month’s choice was  Sushi Guru .  I had no choice but to cheat.  I mean I had a choice, but I love sushi.  So I ate it.  Edamame with pink Himalyan salt.

The low carb roll with crab, tuna, avocado all wrapped in thinly sliced cucumber.

Even though these are cheats from my 12 foods I commited to eating, I have NOT cheated from my low carb/moderate protein/high fat keto diet.  And I can tell.  Small changes are happening, so I am going to stick with it!

  1. Of course if you like the peanut butter in Reese’s, you can always buy Reese’s peanut butter. It is delicious!

    1. Mary Beth–
      I try to only buy peanut butter that contains only peanuts. No added salt, oil, and especially no added sugar!
      Reese’s peanut butter ingredient list:
      ROASTED PEANUTS; SUGAR; CONTAINS 2% OR LESS OF: HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL (RAPESEED, COTTONSEED, AND SOYBEAN OILS); SALT; PEANUT OIL; MONOGLYCERIDES; MOLASSES; CORNSTARCH.
      Yikes! 🙂
