People will message me and ask about Keto all the time. And usually it revolves around what to eat.
And I get that.
I always believe in keeping it simple at first (or forever). I don’t count macros (but highly recommend MyFitnessPal if you want to!) and I didn’t really count calories until a couple of weeks into it. I did pay attention to my carbs though, I should add–this is super important.
I think keeping on hand proteins and fats like deli meat, cooked chicken or steak, tuna, nuts, cheese, dressings, etc. ready to go is so important, as well as getting rid of any trigger foods (ice cream and Oreos, for example).
When you’re a mom it’s a little harder to do Keto unless your whole family does it–I mean, I already feel like a short order cook as it is since Moseby is the pickiest eater on the planet!–so I make some meals to trick them ’cause I’m sneaky like that. 😉
Here’s one of my favorite recipes: Steaks in Mushroom Cream Sauce (there’s the nutrition on the page too). Y’all, it is SO GOOD.
You cook the steaks 4-5 minutes on each side (for medium).
Once cooked to your liking you put them on a plate. Do not clean the skillet. Add some mushrooms that look like this.
And that somehow turn into this amazing gorgeous sight.
You’ll add your cream and broth and put atop the steaks. YUM.
You can serve with vegetables or a salad or cauliflower rice or cauliflower mashed “potatoes”, etc.
Another winner is a wedge salad with steak. This is not a true wedge–I like romaine lettuce, but that’s just me.
I add purple onion, a bit of tomato, bleu cheese crumbles, crumbled bacon, and homemade ranch dressing (best dressing ever), then I top with steak.
MMMMMMM. Makes my Keto loving heart so happy.
Are Keto recipes something you’re interested in? I wasn’t sure if people would want to hear about this or not.
Hope you all have a great weekend! We’re leaving today to go to the beach (ALL the kids first time to see the Gulf!) for a week and I’m already worried about the 6 hour car ride. Lawson can be an absolute angel…or, well, the absolute opposite. I never know which one I’m going to get!
