Happy Friday! My Keto Week: Photo Tour πŸ‘€

TGIF, right?! Let’s wind down and catch up real quick. πŸ™‚

I had a VERY full week and I’ll be working all weekend, but I did take some time to float in the river and soak up some sun 🌞 and I’m going to sneak off for a hike soon!

I also got a new dress that I love πŸ‘—β€Ό and my kitchen make-over project is coming along super nice. This week we finished painting the cabinets and got the new backsplash done. I’m testing out a new keto meal delivery service too. πŸ‘€

Lots to catch up on! …

2020 Keto Life and Food Diary

I feel bad that my meals aren’t all that exciting this week, but I’ve been eating super simple since Aaron took over my kitchen with wet paint and tools and such.

But at least he made me bacon while he was in there. πŸ˜‰

I finished off the last of that bacon this morning with some cheesy eggs:

Easy Keto Breakfast

He also made a batch of Spinach Cheddar Drop Biscuits while he was here this week, and I made 3 different meals out of those – as a bacon sandwich. πŸ˜πŸƒπŸ₯“πŸ§€

This the awesome Keto Drop Biscuit Recipe in the Southern Keto Cookbook πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ with cheddar & spinach added.

I use 2 servings of Pictsweet Steamables frozen cut leaf spinach (still frozen, straight into the mixing bowl!) + a cup or so of shredded cheddar & the original recipe.

Low Carb Spinach Biscuits

Unfortunately I can’t share her keto drop biscuit recipe due to copyright violation, and it isn’t online anywhere. But EVERYTHING in her cookbook is super easy, delicious and filling, and she only uses very basic everyday ingredients. (highly recommended!)

You can check out the reviews and read her story here:

There’s just something about a bacon biscuit. πŸ˜‹

And you know me: I’ll add spinach to just about anything! πŸ™‚ Like my delicious spinach burgers or this easy oven stew and even my sausage balls recipe!

(Fun Fact: Did you know spinach promotes healthy hair growth??)


πŸ—ž The BIG news today is Lolli’s new flavor!

I fell in love with what was originally called Lolli’s Low Carb Granola almost two years ago. It’s now called Lolli’s Clusters, which is much more accurate because they’re like big chunks of cookie clusters – VERY low carb, gluten free & keto friendly of course.

Just this morning she released a brand new flavor: πŸ₯₯🍫 German Chocolate cookie clusters. Super moist, perfectly rich and amazingly delicious! ❀

Keto German Chocolate Dessert

Here are ALL the flavors:

πŸ₯œ Peanut Butter Macadamia
πŸ₯ Cinnamon Pecan Crunch
πŸ₯• Carrot Cake
β˜• Mocha Cappuccino
πŸ‹ Lemon Drop
πŸ₯₯🍫 German Chocolate
* (Seasonal: Gingerbread)

πŸ₯£ They’re great as cereal, fun for snacking, perfect to top your yogurt & ice cream and awesome for creative baking too!! πŸ‘©β€πŸ³

Think: cinnamon crunch blueberry vanilla muffins – made with vanilla macadamia butter. 😍 yeah… (stay tuned for that recipe!)

πŸ“² My discount code is LOWCARBTRAVELER at https://lollisclusters.com/lowcarbtraveler ~ and the brand new German Chocolate flavor is FINALLY available if you want to grab some. πŸ’•

Dresses on Amazon - LowCarbTraveler

I haven’t shown my face in awhile, or taken any new pictures of myself at all actually. I didn’t realize just how withdrawn I had become – until someone pulled me out of it.

I’ll have to share more with you about that. πŸ˜‰

I’m NOT loving any of these pictures of me, but I *AM* loving this new dress!! πŸ‘—

I got it on Amazon pretty cheap, and I love it SO much that I ordered two more in solid colors (green and wine red). πŸ™‚

amzn_assoc_linkid = “d4f0f1bcbc3f5ef117e0fbd00b0ffa28”;

I didn’t mean that to sound bad…

I’m really pleased about maintaining my weight loss, even if I have lost some muscle tone this year. That doesn’t bother me because I’m working on it (!!) – and anytime I’m actively working toward improving myself, that feels GOOD. πŸ™Œ

It’s less about “how I look” and more about… not wanting to be looked at. It’s an introvert thing I guess. It started back in June and I just sort of went quiet over the summer and kept to myself. But more on that later. πŸ˜‰

Speaking of Amazon though (I get a lot of cute dresses there!), that’s also where I got the new backsplash for my kitchen – and the paint, and some plants, new wall maps and other fun home decor stuff. βœ…

I’m going with “cheap & easy” on my home projects and this Peel & Stick Tile is really cool. I was impressed with it!

It’s a HUGE improvement over the weird blue wallpaper my kitchen came with. 😝

Back to my meals though, I also had the Spinach Salad with grilled chicken and roasted tomatoes again – twice this week πŸ€” er, maybe three times!

It’s SO good, and takes literally FIVE MINUTES to make.

It’s the same salad I shared with you in my last food diary:

Low Carb Spinach Salad

This is the chicken I keep on hand in the freezer (below) for fast low carb meals: grilled & ready chicken strips. πŸ₯°

Just toss them in the skillet with a little butter 🧈🍳 (yes, still frozen) and brown a bit over medium heat… and you have the perfect salad topper πŸ₯— or serve over/with cauli rice or roasted vegetables πŸ₯¦ or stuff them in your low carb wraps.

Easy! Perfect when you need a 5 minute keto meal. 🎯

Tyson Frozen Chicken Strips

This one is Tyson brand but the Simple Truth brand at Kroger stores is good too. πŸ‘ You’ll find them in the frozen food section near the wings usually. πŸ›’

I’ve pretty much been eating meals-on-repeat or super simple stuff this week with the kitchen torn apart and wet paint everywhere.

Which suits me fine – I actually prefer simple meals!

One of the things I do is log my meals in MyFitnessPal BEFORE I make or eat them. That REALLY helps me with portion control AND with mindful eating. πŸ‘Œ

KISS Easy Keto Meals

Another favorite snack lately is roasted pecans dipped in Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream Cheese.

That stuff is SO good! I love it spread on the keto drop biscuits, as a dip, or it even melts down nice to make a cream sauce when you’re cooking. πŸ˜‰

Easy Keto Snacks

Another meal we have a lot when Aaron is here is Aidell’s Apple Chicken Sausage πŸŽπŸ” over cheesy cauliflower rice medley.

Aaron doesn’t eat beef or pork, and this is a favorite we BOTH love. It’s 3 carbs per big plump juicy link – and delicious. πŸ˜‹

Aidells Apple Chicken Sausage

It also has WAY better ingredients than other brands of Apple Chicken Sausage!

I’ve been testing out a keto meal delivery service over the last week or so too, so stay tuned for details on that.

I’ve been really impressed so far, but I’m doing ALL the research on it – and of course trying to score you a discount code on the one I settle on as the BEST. πŸ˜‰

This is just one of the meals I tried though: pork steaks with steamed zucchini sticks. The pork was like super tender fatty boneless pork ribs. 😍 SO good, and SO nice not to have to cook!!

Keto Meal Reviews

Now that I have my kitchen back for the weekend πŸ™‚ I’m going to get to work on that recipe for you: Cinnamon Crunch Vanilla Muffins with Wild Blueberries.

Hmm πŸ€” I need help coming up with a better name for that recipe, lol…

Or maybe I’ll make cinnamon-blueberry-vanilla-pancakes instead, or both! The same batter makes great muffins, waffles & pancakes. πŸ₯ž It’s the same base recipe as my Keto Blueberry Muffins, just with a variation on the ingredients.

I’m going to use the Vanilla Macadamia Nut Butter this time instead since I got SO much of it FREE in my last few Perfect Keto orders. πŸ₯°

I got 3 of my 4 orders already, by the way! They’re shipping FAST

Perfect Keto Unboxing

I told you I was stocking up for the winter. πŸ˜…

Here’s what I ordered, and how I got the most savings combining their deals.

I ordered more peanut butter cookies too, which should come tomorrow. I think I’m going to snag more collagen since the B2G1 (buy two get one free) code is still working…

I don’t know why it is, but I’m not going to complain! πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Their bars and cookies have a GREAT (long) shelf life, and Aaron eats those too, so I went ahead and stocked up on both while they were so cheap.

Go For Your Goals

πŸ”Ž Oh, and I found another GREAT deal from Perfect Keto which might be ideal for you if you just want to try Perfect Keto bars – CHEAP.

Their new 6-bar sample variety pack is normally $22.99, but there’s a secret page where you can get it for $8.50 when you add on my discount code.❣

πŸ“² [SALE] Perfect Keto 6-Bar Variety Pack

(see my screenshot below)

If you want to add on something to get free shipping (I’d ALWAYS rather have another product than pay for shipping!) – they have very high quality Pure C8 MCT Oil that’s an incredibly good price, also discounted with my code. βœ…

This combo saves you $17.79 and you get free shipping too. But you can play around with different combinations.

You’ll see at checkout they might offer you 50% off the Cinnamon Roll keto collagen bars. Those are delicious πŸ˜‹ and that’s a GREAT value (they’re normally 39.99!).

* TIP: you might have to shop around and revisit your cart / checkout a few times to get that deal to pop up. πŸ˜‰

Try Perfect Keto Bars Variety Pack

Their B2G1 FREE sale is still working, and you can still get 4+ boxes of bars for 45% off (a “Build Your Own Flavor Bundle” deal you won’t find on their website) – but those deals are more for “regulars” who know what they love and like to stock up.

THIS ☝ might be a better option if you just want to sample some things first. πŸ’•

Here’s the link again, for the $8.50 keto bar variety pack:

πŸ“² [SALE] Perfect Keto 6-Bar Variety Pack

For the B2G1 sale & BEST DEALS and to see what I got – and how I saved the most AND got the most free products πŸ™‚ check out my blog post at:

⏰ Free Stuff + Half Off = Perfect Keto Party Time!

I’m always scouting the BEST deals for you. πŸ™‚

Are you using MCT Oil, by the way?

Perfect Keto has one of the BEST quality AND lowest prices on MCT Oil. They also have a smaller C8/C10 oil that is good too, just a much smaller bottle (great to try it out, or for traveling!).

I stopped taking it awhile back, but I’m going to start using it again myself. I was much leaner, had way more energy and had WAY less appetite when I was using it every morning.

Let’s catch up!

How are things going with you this week?

πŸ“¦ If you ordered stuff from Perfect Keto last week, did you get your packages yet? I’d love to hear what YOU ordered, and what you’ve tried so far!

I hope this note proves helpful, or gives you some ideas to try. Like I said, I feel bad I don’t have anything new & exciting to share this week – but sometimes eating the same GREAT meals that are quick & easy (and delicious) is … just nice.

I’d rather spend an extra hour at the river or on the deck than in the kitchen. πŸ˜‰

If you have any low carb or keto questions, let me know…

I’m always happy to help! πŸ’•

Or maybe you have some tips & ideas, a great success story – or a great low carb recipe you love even, that you want to share. Drop a comment and let’s all catch up this weekend… xo
