Food = Fuel

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…

*BREAKFAST*

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*

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.

*DINNER*

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?
