This past weekend was a blink-and-you-miss-it blur. We did loads of adulting and gardening. Hubby had a 16 mile trail race, and we spent some time catching up with friends we hadn’t seen in awhile.
Last night we watched a couple of deer work their way through, sampling from the delicious buffet that is our side yard. They completely ignored the herb garden, which made us wonder if they had bumped into the new fence and were spooked by it. Time will tell.
Diving into this week’s menu:
Cloud Bread – New Recipe! I made two flavors; Parmesan and Everything Bagel. Will serve these with a schmear.
We’re having a mixture of cold salads for lunch this week.
Mason Jar Spinach Salad – New Recipe! I made four of these salads. I substituted stevia sweetener for the sugar in the dressing. Instead of spooning the dressing into the bottom of the jar, I stored each portion in a tiny container.
Zucchini Salad – New Recipe! I’m intrigued by the prospect of a low-carb imitation potato salad. UPDATE: We like this! I added a little extra mustard and three boiled eggs.
Greek Salad – An old favorite
Meatloaf, Green Beans and Mashed Cauliflower – New recipe! I substituted almond flour for the oatmeal in the meatloaf, and used prepared mashed cauliflower.
Keto Western Omelettes – New Recipe! We love breakfast for dinner.
Cauliflower Pizza – This is as satisfying as “real” pizza; and has become a default when we need some dinner inspiration. I use ground flax seed (from Aldi) instead of the psyllium husk.
Southwestern Squash Casserole – To make this gluten free and lower in carbs, I’m substituting coconut flour for the wheat flour. UPDATE: Do not do this! The coconut flour did not incorporate well and the casserole was gritty as a result. It didn’t affect the flavor, just the texture. I’ll try arrowroot powder next.
Lemony Avocado Tuna Salad – We’re slightly obsessed.
I’m finding that I need fewer snacks on keto.
Pimento cheese and celery, cucumber slices, pickles, walnuts, green pepper strips
Beautiful carbs for hubby: Pineapple, grapes, bananas, watermelon, Tiny but Mighty popcorn
Fresh Strawberries and Homemade Whipped Cream with Lily’s Chocolate Chips on top – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! I sweeten the cream with a packet or two of Whole Earth. This tasty keto treat is a good substitute for my nightly watermelon.
