I have so many photos yet to post of the meals I’ve had recently, so I just decided to do a multi photo post of my keto/cooking progress. I will admit I’ve fallen off the bandwagon recently, but I’m trying to get back into my keto routine now that I’m not as depressed lately! 💕
From top left to bottom right:
1) Breakfast: Almond flour pancakes with cinnamon and butter + peppered bacon.
2) Late Leftover Lunch: Cheese quesadillas with low carb tortillas and sliced avocado, with leftover caesar salad and butter sautéed, parmesan crusted asparagus.
3) Dinner: Onion smothered porkchops, asparagus (mentioned above), and mashed cauliflower.
4) Dinner: Lettuce-wrapped, pub style burgers with onions, mushrooms, and blue cheese.
5) Dinner: Creamy chicken alfredo with spaghetti squash noodles.
Snacks I’m loving rn: pork rinds with sour cream, blue cheese stuffed olives, pickles, raw celery sticks/broccoli florets and ranch dip.
Not pictured - Mozzarella stuffed meatballs over spaghetti squash. I used the leftover squash to make the chicken alfredo! 😋
In which your boyfriend keeps his tradition of giving you unique holiday presents.
You sighed as you folded your laundry. It’s been nine months since you and your boyfriend moved in together, and you designated yourself as the person who did the laundry. Taehyung had habits of flipping his clothes inside out when he took them off and not separating the light clothes from the dark clothes. You didn’t know that you would be annoyed at his habits enough to be the sole person to do the laundry. In exchange, he was in charge of cleaning the cat’s litter box.
I once tried making the Dalish Deep Forest Comfort and it’s honestly my favourite food now. I have to replace the spagetti squash with rice noodles (thin ones work the best) but it’s honestly both very nice and light but filling. You don’t have to be exact at all with the ingredients and it’s pretty fast to make. Adding fresh rucola to the top can be a nice extra. I’m just so happy I found that recipe.
For 9 days I ate 3 vegan meals a day for £3.39, I did a big food shop that would feed me for that long and then divided it by 9 to reach the daily price! I wanted to show that veganism is still do-able and tasty on a budget.
(the only thing different from the receipts pictures is I bought some butternut squash noodles for 84p)
Here are all the meals that I had each day with a picture of the receipts too so you can see exactly what I bought. A repeated a few of the meals and ended up on leftovers by the end of the week but still found it really diverse and enjoyed it a lot. I also felt like I was definitely eating enough and getting a balance of all the good stuff. (I forgot to include this on the list because it’s such a habit, but I drink a glass of fortified plant milk every day and sprinkle nutritional yeast on almost all my savoury food to make sure I get enough vitamin B12)
I didn’t include the specific recipes for these because they were all SO simple and were completely improvised, it just involved a lot of frying and simmering and microwaving. I hope the lists speak for themselves but if you want to know how I made an exact meal message me and I’ll try and get back to you!
I could have made it significantly cheaper if I hadn’t done the last third of the shop at Tesco, but I’ll fix that next time and hopefully get it down to £2.50 per day. Also, at the end of the week I still had a lot of food (leftovers, frozen veg, rice, pasta, bread) left over which makes it work out even cheaper.
* things marked with this are condiments, spices, spreads etc. that I always just “have in”/last a long time and wouldn’t be included in a regular shop
