My Own Private Idaho

… After all is said and done, usually more is said than done…

Stuffed Chicken Breast…

I have never really been one who loved chicken breast – for some reason it always seemed to be the least spiced part of the chicken.

Last week I was browsing for chicken breast recipes and came across a lot.

I decided to get to work so I bought some chicken breast, some bacon and cheese. I ended up mixing my own sauce and I must tell you the end result was great.

I was meant to have it with grilled asparagus but I couldn’t wait and had it by itself.


Pork Rinds Flatbread…🌮🌮🌮

I have never really liked pizza. I mean I eat it if I must but I don’t dream about it the way some do.

So I never really missed it when I began to cut down my carbs – truth be told I did not miss normal bread too.

However I do love one of the dough heads people on the internet use as a replacement for their pizza crust – pork rinds flatbread.

It is made with pork rinds, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese and eggs and if u slice them into squares you can use for sandwiches.

This has become my bread replacement along with the bagels I make (without the pork rinds but with almond flour)

Pack lunch for the rest of the week is sorted then…

… Finding my way back…

Ever since I learnt how to make keto sausage gravy and biscuit bake it had become a staple in my meal prep (by staple I mean I have made it twice lol)

In addition to that I also had this courgette that was on its last legs so I decided to fry it. On a whim I went to the shops and bought a small chicken.

Not only did I fry them but I poured some tomato and pepper sauce and frozen spinach over them and transformed them to stew.

Well my meal prep was sorted…

Now I just need to see if the fish mongers have salmon head…

This Food Processor…

I have been away from here for a while (we can thank the ☀️ for that)

Well, with sunny days comes barbecues and food and more food and more food.

Went to the shops last night on a mission and guess what? Cauliflower was on sale. For a while cauli had been pretty expensive so I had resulted to buying the also expensive cauli rice.

Seeing it on sale yesterday meant only one thing – I could use my food processor to rice my own cauli so I bought one.

I was able to get the same 4 sachets of cauli rice I usually bought for 1/4 of the price – smart economics.

I also cubed a portion of veggies for my evening smoothie.

You could say I am on a roll…

Locking Guru..

It is safe to say that I have become some sort of locs expert (at least where my own locs are concerned}

So, yesterday, I  spent the better part of last night tightening my locs. My hair is growing slowly but surely…


Zucchini and Cheese Bake…

Thanks to the internet again I found a recipe for spaghetti and cheese bake.

I revamped it a bit and switched the spaghetti with zucchini

The result was heavenly…


P.S – By the way, I just saw Avengers: Infinity War

A Happy Accident… 🥨🥨🥨

I actually woke up today and went for a pseudo-run/jog.

So it was no surprise that I got back feeling like I could move mountains. The mountain I decided to tackle however was the keto pretzels 🥨 that have been everywhere on the internet lately.

Suffice it to say that something went wrong with mine and it refused to roll.

I made them into balls anyways and put them in my oven. My very own happy mistake.

I even went a step further and roasted almonds and I’m currently slow cooking chicken and vegetables.

For this week though – call me the meal prep queen…

Sausage Gravy and Biscuit Bake…

There comes a time in your life when you find something you never knew you were even looking for.

So I have been trying to get back into a reasonably healthy lifestyle – I even bought skipping rope and new pairs of running shoes.

I also felt that part of my problem was that I had gotten into a food rut – cooking the same meals over and over again became boring quick.

But then I went to my ‘knight in shining armour’ – and found so many lovely dishes.

Last night I tried the keto sausage gravy and biscuit bake and it came out lovely.

Add that to my repertoire.

Now I just need to start jogging 🏃‍♀️

Snacks Snacks Snacks

Back at it again – decided to make some snacks that I would not feel guilt munching.

So I went back to my trusted almond flour cookies 🍪 (I really need to learn to make more snacks)

This time, however I used ghee instead of butter as I did not have the patience to wait for it to melt. I also put my dough in the fridge overnight – I believed it helped its texture.

I also made vegetable sauce. So ten points for me…
