Thank you Shay from @hookedonketo for the quiche inspiration. I absolutely loved it!!! I did struggled with the dough a bit because it was super sticky so I changed the method (recipe👇) and it made it so much easier for me which means I'll make it again.
I also turned any left over dough into crackers 👌
90g Almond Meal
2 tbsp. Parmesan, grated
1/8 tsp Himalayan pink salt
PREHEAT OVEN TO 160C/ 325F
Combine all ingredients, I used my nutribullet but you could do it by hand.
I found the dough very sticky and impossible to work with so I rolled it out to size between two pieces of parchment baking paper and put it in the fridge for 15 mins.
Spray your quiche dish with some olive oil. I'm using a mini one and carefully peel away each layer of parchment paper but leave it resting on the paper to flip it over your dish and gently line it. Poke holes in the base with a fork and cook for 7-mins.
Allow to cool whilst you prepare your filling.
I went for rosemary mushrooms with bacon and shallots/scallions, and an egg mix with a tablespoon of cream, marinated goats cheese and some organic tasty cheese (total of 60g between the 2) and it was DELICIOUS!!!! I just cooked the bacon, mushrooms, shallots and rosemary off in some butter and olive oil. Placed half the mushroom mix in the quiche, then egg mix, then topped with the rest of the mushrooms. I also drizzled the oil from the marinated feta on top and baked it on 175C/350F for 25 minutes.
Shortbread crust Samoa bars with toasted coconut caramel and wonderful dark chocolate drizzle! The crust is made of coconut flour, maple syrup and coconut oil; while the amazing filling takes almond and coconut butter, vanilla, maple syrup and chocolate! This recipe is a creation fof @bakeritablog and you can find the full recipe at their site... Lovely bars for your sweet tooth! 😋

This week has been a blur. With work being crazy and wanting to be there for friends and family I ended up missing some of my regular workouts. Why as women do we always put everyone else before ourselves? It is like we are hard wired to to think "I'll have time when everyone else is good." Today I prioritized me and made sure that I got my time to decompress and destress.
And I left my workout feeling much better. Think about when you fly, they always say to secure your mask before helping others. Don't feel guilty about taking care of yourself. If you don't you won't be able to take care of anyone else. #selfcare
Yes, I wanted to delete the photo in the right as soon as I saw it because I was not posing or even looking to the camera but later realized that I don’t hate it as I used to do.. I was like on damn you look even when it is random because my narcissistic side is on fire today 😂😂😂
Yesterday I ate keto all day long but we visited with friends and went to the best Italian restaurant around. I got a Cesar salad with chicken. BUT they make the most amazing bread there and bring out this orange parmesan oily sauce that's amazing. I really wanted some and didn't think about it twice. I just ate one piece and it was delicious and I didn't feel the urge to binge on more. I also ate the few homemade croutons on the salad. Then went on eating keto the rest of the day.
So this morning I woke up feeling very lean. Jumped on the scale and I weighed the lowest I've weighed in a few weeks back down to my lowest ever. So I decided to test my blood sugar and ketones. My blood sugar was spiked to 108 and my ketones were at 0.8. Which is lower than what I was reading last week but still in a nutritional ketosis range! So that piece of bread and those croutons were not enough to kick me out of ketosis! Would never recommend anyone do that regularly but don't be afraid to live your life and just have something if you want it! The effects can be way more minimal than you think.
