since when do people on a non-keto diet eat "ready made meals" is that what you ate when you weren't eating 100% disgusting fats? lol. u should know that even if someone isn't on a necessary diet, doesn't mean they don't have restrictions on what they eat. maybe eating healthy food (yes, that includes carbs. ugh) is their lifestyle and not some crazy weight loss plan.... ever heard of quinoa salad? lmfao. since when is bacon drizzled in melted cheese healthier than whole grains? *eye roll*

Oh my, didn’t I LOVE my quinoa salads. Along with Chickpeas is one of the things I will always miss the most. Alas, even with slow carbs like that, with my unlucky insulin resistance, even that would just become sugar in my blood, left unused and stored up as fat.


I totally understand where your perception of “bacon drizzled in melted cheese” being just “unhealthy” comes from. My vegan friend laughed at me the other day when I posted this on instagram with the tag #healthyfood as he genuinely thought I was kidding. 

I had to explain to him how food absorption works and basics of biochemistry to allow him to learn beyond what it’s just repeated over and over around (that fat is bad for you, without any context to explain how or why). Essentially the brain believes (based on our last body evolution, occurred round 10000 years ago) that we can still incur in a famine/shortage of food at any time, so the mainly appreciated food by it is a combination of Fat and Sugar, cause when ingested together, we assimilate it all: carbs start the insulin reaction, which stores all the excess nutritional energy in the blood into fat, whether it was fat or not to begin with. In a possibly too simplified way basically for a person on low carb that has no insulin spikes, the fat can be eaten, and if not used for energy right there and then, won’t be stored. Same amount of fat, eaten in combination with carbs which will have released insulin, and you’ll absorb and transform into fat anything you aren’t using right away for energy from both carbs and fat.
I can give you lots of links to scientific papers that can explain this to you more into detail, but this is basically the easiest version, how reddit would say it “explained so that a five year old can understand it” so no excuses now ;) This documentary also give the basics of this without being “biased” on low carb, if it helps : http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05psf4l/the-truth-about-3-fat

Ultimately, people with a generally normal disposition, can digest carbs and live happily with the healthy ones, and even the odd treat here and there, and I’ll be honest, I do envy you if that’s your case, cause the psychological and economical strain of a diet that requires the keto precision take a toll on me sometimes. But because it’s the healthy choice “for me” I am happy to do it and I am rewarded every time my blood works come back being better and better with insulin responses, driving no inflammation, and (because I am a girl so I’m allowed to be a bit shallow) fitting into nicer clothes.

Ultimately, I am happy I found the way that works for someone with my condition, and regardless of general preconception about health, having medical test to tell me I am on the right path is all I need.
Along with size 14 shorts I can actually proudly wear now I won’t lie ;)

(sorry, this photo is quite obsolete already as, since January, I lost 14 lbs more, and turned my hair lavender, but it should give an idea nonetheless)

Once again, let me just thank you for your interest in me and my diet and your time investment. Regardless of how it might sound I know what it means cause ultimately time is the most precious of good for humans, as we have it in limited amounts and it’s a non-renewable good, so for you to come around my blog it means I am interesting enough to invest some of yours about me, so thank you. Whatever they might say or think, I understand the kind of flattery that is and I thank you sincerely for your support.

Attention all ketoers, low carbs, or any one really...

Okay so I have always bruised easily. I also tend to get low iron near my period. This is something that I have experienced all my life, way before doing keto.

I’ve did strict keto regularly for about 2 months (but have also done smaller stints of it in the past). I love it. I feel full, have energy, etc.

*****Recently I have noticed that certain parts of my body will become sore, like I’ve been roughing around, and a light bruise will usually show. It’s happened on my legs and arms mostly. ****

Now to be honest the past month I haven’t been faithful to getting in my daily spinach or other dark greens which I used to eat almost every day, at least twice.
I take a magnesium supplement. I’m trying to get a multi vitamin so I can take that.
I usually get In around 2000-4500 mg is potassium daily.

I looked it up and it could be a vitamin deficiency in either vitamin c, vitamin k, iron, vitamin b2 or even vitamin b.

I don’t think it could be vitamin c because I drink lemon water a lot and drink coconut milk which has it. I’m thinking it could be vitamin k since I haven’t had much leafy greens lately.

I’m getting my blood tested in the next few days to find out but has anyone else had a problem with this?

Btw I don’t think keto itself is doing this, I just obviously have deficiency somewhere and need to fix it with supplementation.

I know it’s been like a RIDICULOUS amount of time since I last posted something. I’ve been so fucking busy, but finally found some time to cook. :)

I found this recipe somewhere on Reddit (can’t find it now), but they’re super easy, low-carb, and tasty!

Pizza Muffins

  • 1/3 cup freshly ground flax seed
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • Pinch of Celtic sea salt
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup cubed nitrate-free pepperoni
  • ½ cup no sugar added pizza sauce (optional, for dipping ; not included in calorie count)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Thoroughly grease a 12-cup muffin pan (don’t use liners, the muffins get stuck to them). In a large bowl, whisk together the flax seed, baking powder, Italian seasoning, and salt; whisk in the egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.

Stir the batter and place in the muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping. Makes 12 muffins.
