Wednesday Weigh-In Day #72

No change on the scale. Still 244lbs - SMH.

Anyways…

Zucchinis! Where have yall been all my life?!

I liked what I tried but of course I got a hundred more ideas lol. Now I can actually give all these keto zucchini recipes a chance :D

Pic #1 - Thin sliced in a mandolin, just 1 medium sized zucchini.

Pic #2 - First batch, brushed a little olive oil on each 1. Then sprinkled some salt and pepper. Put them in the oven at 200 F. for 68 minutes and then 2 minutes of broil. 

Pic #3 - Almost forgot to take a pic lol. they were only crispy bc of the broil so I’m going to try it at 250 F in 30 minute increments next time.

Pic #4 - When they’re crispy they’re crispy lol

Pic #5 - Had some more left over so I tried them in the pan. Olive oil, salt and pepper at medium heat. 

Pic #6 - I ended up flipping them over and raising the heat AND burning most. They STILL tasted awesome. Almost better this way. 

I definitely need to experiment more with zucchinis :D 

Any recommendations?

as a lover of BACON I’m not sure why I haven’t tried a bacon weave sandwich yet… gotta be the laziness lol

questions: did it fall apart as soon as you bit into it? about how many slices of bacon? how’d u cook it?

First of all, I want to thank mission145 for the quest bars! I LOVE you and them and thanks again :D I won her raffle thing and I got them on Saturday,

I finally ate a whole bar (I had only tasted pieces of them from my co worker) and OMFG the cookie dough one is AMAZING. I dont understand how anyone can dislike them BUT I’m glad she (mission145) did :D

Yesterday was a Wednesday Weigh In and my scale’s batteries were dead - is that a sign? I HAVE been feeling fat BUT I’ve been good dammit! smh

I’m planning on trying 2 experiments in the next few weeks. Will post them up when I get a chance.

My New FatBOMBS 

I’ve now tried 3 versions and I’ve found my favorite! 

Version #1 - Fat = 25g | Net Carbs = 1g 

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
  • 2 tbsp nuts ‘n more peanut butter
  • 10 drops of ez sweets
  • 1 drop of vanilla extract

This was so good!

Version #2 - Fat = 36g | Net Carbs = 1g

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
  • 2 tbsp nuts ‘n more peanut butter
  • 10 drops of ez sweets
  • 1 drop of vanilla extract

This was also good but too soupy. The extra fat was great and doable but I did prefer the thickness of only using 1 tbsp of butter.

Version #3 - Fat = 24g | Net Carbs = 0g

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter (melted)
  • 2 tbsp nuts ‘n more chocolate almond butter
  • 10 drops of ez sweets
  • 1 drop of vanilla extract

This was AMAZING. The fact that its already chocolate makes the flavor so GOOOOOOOOOOOD. Plus zero net carbs!

What I did:

I melted the butter in a cup and then added the sweetener and vanilla extract. Stirred. Then I added the 2 tbsp of peanut/almond butter and stirred till everything was blended as one. 

The pic is Version #1 :) - I forgot to take other pictures smh.

Mmm, I just made one based off of these recipes (2tbsp butter, 3tbsp PB). It was really delicious! Topped it with some whipped heavy cream and it’s made my day a bit better. :)

Nice!! I have not tried it with whipped heavy cream, but I will!

Still, the Keto Warrior don’t play!

We threw a party for the kid on Saturday and I was surrounded by carby goodness and I didn’t even flinch! I ended up eating like 5 bunless hotdogs and like 3 coke zeros but it’s all good!

Pic #1

  • Cake and a moutain of cupcakes, filled with dulce de leche topped with icing.

Pic #2

  • Shortbread cookies topped with icing.

Pic #3

  • Table full of food! Macaroni salad, enpanadas, pastries, chips, cookies and fruit.

Didn’t even flinch :D

So I had to join in on the ‘cheese wrap’ craze! Stuffed mine with mayo, spinach, turkey and salami. 

I think I might have to make the wrap bigger next time…..

All credit goes to dotheketo!

Wednesday Weigh-In Day #44

I don’t usually go this long without posting something unless I cheated and didn’t want to be reminded of my fail BUT this time I’ve just been busy :D

As you can see, I’m about 2 lbs down from last week - WOOHOO!

I was actually going to skip this week bc I thought I over did the alcohol and wings on Saturday but I woke up Sunday NOT feeling like shit so it’s all good!

On a side note, today is my kid’s 1st birthday and we’re throwing him a party on Saturday. Guess what the wife has been doing all day (since we both took the day off). Yep cookies! 77 shortbread cookies! Now she’s making the frosting. SMH 

Like I said before, I was thinking of cheating on his birthday and/or his party but I’m doing so good and I’m such in the zone mentally that I’m not going to fuck it up!

I’ll be having a cookie dough quest bar for dessert at dinner tonight lol
