I’m purported to be out dancing the night time away at a Willie Nelson all-star tribute live performance (and primarily as a result of certainly one of my favourite bands was performing there!) however I ended up staying in (and out of the chilly rain) tonight… so I assumed I’d write and share my FUN replace with you as an alternative. 🙂
I feel it helps to see what different individuals eat, and in addition how they log it.
I received some GREAT new keto meal concepts myself yesterday, and may’t wait to get within the kitchen and check out them out.
I do know that sounds loopy coming from me, however sure: I’m impressed to do some cooking! 🙂
I went to Nashville final night time for the Southern Keto Cookbook Tour occasion to help my pal Natasha on her first of 4 talks about her cookbook & keto journey.
This is Natasha’s guide: Southern Keto: 100+ Traditional Food Favorites for a Low-Carb Lifestyle and I used to be significantly moved by her variety phrases in my copy! ❤
So a lot weight misplaced, so many private battles gained, so many new buddies made… that’s what the keto group is all about! ❤
I’ll inform you extra concerning the occasion and what I’m impressed to prepare dinner first from her new cookbook in a second. Let me again up and share how my day went in correct order, although. 😉
I had a busy morning of labor earlier than I headed to Nashville yesterday, so I whipped up 5 eggs scrambled with cheese – which I made two smaller meals out of.
I knew I used to be going out to eat for dinner, and on these days I attempt to eat tremendous low carb and clear in any other case, to account for any hidden carbs in restaurant meals.
I needed to wrap up work and head out early so I simply snacked on some FatSnax keto cookies whereas I used to be doing that later within the afternoon – simply so I might get by till what I knew can be a wonderful dinner!
I hosted a Keto Dinner Meetup earlier than the e-book signing occasion, and met up with three different women within the Middle Tennessee space for a meal at Outback Steakhouse.
We all know one another from Instagram, however this was our first time assembly in individual – and it was nice enjoyable! 🙂
I had a fantastic 12ouncesfatty ribeye with grilled asparagus…
Most of us had the steak & asparagus, with a caesar aspect salad because the second aspect. Gina had a salad entree that seemed scrumptious!
Note: Outback provides a “vegetable butter” to their broccoli that makes it FOURTEEN carbs! You might get the broccoli with out that, however you’d should particular request it. see nutrition facts
I introduced treats to share with everybody too. 🙂
First I handed out FBOMBS, since you’ve in all probability observed these are virtually a staple in my very own keto food plan – and I really like letting individuals get to attempt them.
I additionally like educating individuals the most effective methods to take pleasure in them: drizzled over issues if you’re at residence, or if you’re on the go – utilizing your physique warmth to make them tremendous yummy!
I additionally introduced my favourite Keto Granola to share, which was despatched courtesy of Lolli’s Granola for us to all take pleasure in. 🙂
So I had the waiter depart our “bread plates” on the desk to make use of for dessert…
Dessert was DEFINITELY the spotlight of our keto dinner meetup! 😍
Everyone LOVED it!! 😉

The Cinnamon Pecan Crunch is just one internet carb per serving. That and the Peanut Butter Macadamia (2 internet carbs per serving) are MY two favorites.
All of her granola flavors/recipes handed my blood glucose & ketone testing with flying colours too. ✔
Such a fantastic snack and good deal with, and makes scrumptious cereal. I actually love the feel, and she or he completely nailed the flavors. The Peanut Butter Macadamia is like recent baked cookies straight out of the oven with a pleasant nutty crunch! ❤
Although I’ll say the granola was an in depth tie for me subsequent to that thick, fatty ribeye steak… 😉
You actually need the fatty meats on a keto food regimen – hen wings and thighs with the pores and skin on as an alternative of hen breast, ribeye as an alternative of sirloin steak, salmon as an alternative of white fish, and so forth.
The aim is to maintain protein at 25% max of your complete every day energy, and get a minimum of 70% of your every day energy in healthy real-food fat.
You can see an instance of that in my MyFitnessPal log for yesterday, and in addition see how I logged my keto meals for the day:
As you’ll be able to see in my food diary above, I had 134 grams of protein (far more than the advisable day by day quantity) but nonetheless stored it proper round 25% of my complete day by day energy. This is vital. 😉
So it’s not LOW protein, or HIGH protein – however relatively you go by ratios or percentages since some proteins are additionally fat, like eggs and salmon and dairy and ribeye steak.
After our dinner all of us headed over to Barnes & Noble for Natasha’s keto speak and e-book signing.
While I used to be ready for it to start out and catching up with my pal Ginger, I used to be shopping by means of it and noticed KETO BISCUITS & GRAVY recipes!! 😍

I didn’t end my granola at dinner final night time, so I had the remainder of it for breakfast this morning. I didn’t end that HUGE steak both, however I did eat the remainder of it on the drive house later. 😉
The Lolli’s Granola was a HUGE hit at dinner final night time. Everyone I share it with has LOVED it, and is completely blown away by how recent it tastes and the way scrumptious it’s. 🙂
