Today was my first day tracking keto and the 20 gr of carbs sure makes it tough. Especially going to the city for lunch. We went to the city today for some shopping, and eating out is all carbs. I got a bbq chicken quarter, and gave away the rice, and bought a side salad, no dressing. The chicken was marinated and I have no idea what was in it. So it may have pushed me over on my carbs, but I have no way of knowing. It was a clear glaze, with no noticeable sugar… but… yeah. Sugar or corn starch is very likely. No way to track that.
So, disregarding the unknown chicken marinade I came it at 21 gr of carbs. If you subtract out the fiber I am at 15 gr. Not too shabby for my first day.
I am currently reading up on some keto desserts. My go to sweet has been apples – but no more – one apple is the carb limit for the whole day! ha ha. I found a couple fat bombs that I can get the ingredients for. We don’t have exotic stuff like almond flour, almond milk, dark chocolate (but we do have cocoa). I will find something. So I may just have a tablespoon of peanut butter. A tbl has 3 gr of carbs and so far I am at 15 gr, and the unknown chicken marinade.
Dinner turned out quite well. Cheeseburger on a bed of zucchini, with homemade salsa. Cucumber, bell pepper, lettuce, and Asian radish on the side. The patty was unusually large. I made up 150 gr patties for the freezer and the last one was 200 gr. But my lunch was small… so I am ok with that. 🙂 Dinner was 8 carbs, 62 fat, 42 protein. Crazy big meal for me. I splurged and bought ground beef, turns out I like the ground pork better. It is what I usually buy. Beef was ok for a change. Not sure which is more keto friendly, or if they are about the same.
