I try to find foods my whole family will love. You too??? We have a two, four and fifteen year old right now. My husband and I jumped on the Keto bandwagon so of course the first thing I did was lots of research to see if I could even do it. Because I LOVE bread. And pasta. And bread. Basically any carb that is a no-no in Keto, that’s what I love! So I knew for me to be able to have a fighting chance at this working, I had to have a plan. So plan I did! I wrote down recipes, I made my Pinterest board. Check it out just in case you need some ideas.
I worked to create a calendar that we could use for dinner ideas. Did you know there are all kids of weird (meaning I’m not familiar with at all) ingredients to create yummy looking Keto friendly recipes? Me either. So I got rid of all the ones that I couldn’t find the ingredients locally.
My mom has been doing Keto for years due to health reasons, so she is a great resource for me. She is hard-core Keto/Paleo, so her diet is even stricter than I was ever planning to be. Friends have done it earlier in the year, but not stuck with it fully. My hubby and I, we were going to be all-in for at least two months, just to see what happened.
Not our first diet, but one of the first times I have set a time frame versus the usually ‘when I lose X amount of pounds’ diet. We are just over one month in, and it’s not near as hard as I thought. What helps the most is a supportive partner, and family who knows (and understands) what you are trying to accomplish.
I will post our favorite recipe next… Pecan Pie Cookies, yum!
