Yesterday was the first day that I ate totally Keto. I didn’t die, obviously, and it wasn’t horrible. I skipped breakfast (errands), had a big salad for lunch (learned that cucumbers are now a thing in my past), and had buttered broiled London Broil with almond sauteed green beans for dinner. I didn’t hit my calories or my macros exactly, but it’s a start.

Today, I started off with a Peanut Butter Frosty, a recipe (below) I customized from one of the books I am working my way through. I’m gonig to get supplies today to make some of the fat bombs mentioned in the books as I have noticed that it is hard for me to get all the fats called for.

Peanut Butter Frosty

(serves one)

  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 scoop keto cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop zero carb protein powder (vanilla)
  • 1 scoop fruit and fiber powder by LivFit
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 tbsp MCT oil
  • Stevia liquid sweetener as desired – I made it with and without, both are fine
  • Ice to fill

Blend all ingredients until smooth. I have a Ninja with the individual smoothie cups, so this works pretty well. The recipe comes out pretty thick, so I have to add ice for a second blend. You could also add some water to make it thin enough to drink. Right now I’m ok eating it with a spoon.
