My Own Private Idaho

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

Dinner in a (heat) wave…

We have had a very hot weekend so I have not been motivated to cook anything interesting. Had to use all my strength visualising the cold…

Also I bough pork rinds for snacks but the barbecue flavour makes it too salty. So I resorted to rinsing my pork rinds and drying it in the oven.

Dinner on the other hand was grilled fish and avocado and cucumber chunks.

Flatbread … Yes!

I am still discovering the many uses of almond flour and yesterday I found one more – Flatbread (or naan, or tortilla or whatever name you choose) The beautiful thing is that there are many varieties and you can tweak it as you choose.

Well I added a tablespoon of psyllium husk and coconut flour to mine. It turned out to be more cracker than naan but next time I may skip the coconut flour or add an extra egg.

All in all it turned out lovely with my stew…

Dinner Time…

I really have nothing of importance to say – only that I really enjoyed my dinner…

Oh, and I made my burgers from scratch…

Bon Appetit…

Strawberries and more strawberries…

It should be known that I have never seen a bargain I never consider… So the open market were selling lots of strawberries for a pound. Well guess who got home with more strawberries than she needed.

Thanks to http://www.ruled.me I was able to find a recipe for strawberry and chia seed jam and also to a blog I was able to find how to make strawberry and lemon juice concentrate.

Now my pastries will be even sweeter (thanks to my jam) and I will battle the heat with my cold strawberry lemonade…

Cauli Fried Rice…

Had not bought cauliflower in a while cos for some reason it had been scarce and expensive. Well I caved and bought one yesterday and like I always do, I riced it, squeezed out the excess water and stored it in my fridge. I have noticed that it tends to stay fresher for longer this way.

Anyways, today I decided to make cauli fried rice. ┬áThe thing with keto meals is that some vegetables are not considered keto compliant – hello carrots and corn. So behold my cauli fried rice.

I did garnish with avocados and 2 chunky ribs…

Cloud Bread and Bacon…

Skipped breakfast so I was really ready for lunch. I had already decided to make cloud bread since I finally had eggs but going online and I saw that I could spice my bread by adding bacon to it.

And that was what I did. It turned out so good that I had a bit too much.

Hopefully that will be a good enough reason to visit the gym today (lol)

Bits and Pieces…

NBA Playoffs ended with the Warriors being victorious

Maths GCSEs are finally over – Time to start praying for my students results…

According to the Met Office – Chance of rain stands at 0%

All in all a good day…

This was my Brekkie..

My low carbs diet means that I can’t have things like croutons anymore. Anyways that didn’t stop me from having my own makeshift croutons (thanks almond flour). I topped it off with avocado and grilled trout – yeah me…

Also it is so irony c that now that I am off chocolates, everyone seems to be gifting me chocolates.

Life..

Courgette Bolognaise…

I have been away from my blog for a bit – Life happens…

Anyways woke up today and decided to make Bolognaise with my courgettes… I had honestly planned making something else but I woke up and realised that I had run out of eggs.

Needless to say, I don’t regret my meal choice…

Yummy…

Build-a-Breakfast…

Last night I prepared my chicken. The plan was for it to last for the week and although that is not going to happen, I had some for my breakfast…

Bon Appetit
