I like keeping our Ketogenic lifestyle interesting. Although much of our food choices are the same from day to day, I like to come up with different ways to prepare them. We are sticking to a pretty clean way of eating. I don’t like to buy too many packaged “Keto” foods. I like to use mostly one ingredient, whole foods, with the exception of a few of our favorite condiments and occasional low carb tortilla.
Our health has improved so much in the past couple of months. We are losing weight effortlessly, we feel so energetic and have so much mental clarity. I am off of my medication my rheumatologist had put me on and so far I’m not having any issues! I’m a little reluctant to say this but I haven’t had a migraine since I’ve been eating this way. These results really spark us on!
Here is a decadent breakfast I made up this morning and I’ll definitely be making it again!
I didn’t do step by step photos with this one but it’s pretty easy to make.
To start I baked my bacon. I like it better baked then fried. I like the texture and you don’t get the grease splatter on the stovetop. I bake them on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees until they are just starting to crisp. We always save our bacon grease for future cooking. Stir fried green beans in bacon grease with a little sea salt is divine.
Next I took softened cream cheese, about 4 oz or so and mixed about a teaspoon of swerve into the cream cheese then a splash of vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Here’s how I make my waffles.
For six waffles I use:
- 5 Eggs
- 1/4 C Almond Flour
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- A splash of Vanilla
- A sprinkle of Cinnamon
Wisk all together and pour into heated waffle iron. You might want to spray a little nonstick cooking spray on the iron.
After the waffles are done, spread some of the cream cheese mixture between the layers of waffles, the cream cheese melts and gets all gooey, yum! We top our with Walden Farms Syrup and a few raspberries.
This recipe has a lot of protein and fat and that’s what you need with the keto lifestyle to keep you full until your next meal.
We intermittent fast, so we end up eating two meals a day, seldom snacking between meals and we go 16-18 hours without food and recipes like this help keep you full for a long time.
