Okay, I’m doing something a little different! This morning yesterday, when I was at Aldi, I bought a chuck roast. You guys. I have no idea what to do with this. Well, I’m making a Mississippi pot roast because I just looked at recipes on the Internet, but funny thing when I was in the hospital one of the meals that they served me that I really liked was the pot roast and I was like okay, if I think Hospital pot roast tastes good, then, like imagine what I could do in the luxury of my own kitchen right.
So, according to everything I’ve read, you should take a pot roast. It puts the right seasoning some some gravy seasoning, some pepper Ragini’s in a crock pot. If you guys look, here’s the crock pot, I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I used a crock pot like this is opening up a whole new world to me. So I have my pan on I’m about to put a tablespoon of butter in there and then I’m just going to sear this thing on each side for a few minutes, and then I put it in the crock pot: okay, everyone, the roast, looks crusty and seared And I’m, oh, I’m really excited about it.
Already: okay, packet of ranch packet of a Jew seasoning, not the cleanest ingredients, riddled with maltodextrin, but I figure since it’s all going to like soak off in the juices and whatnot, I’m probably going to count three quarters of the carbs in these. This whole packet is 16 carbs. This whole packet is 12 carbs, so I mean that’ll still bring me out to 3 or 4 carbs of serving which is okay, but let’s sprinkle and set it and forget it.
I have 60 grams of pepper, a Cheney and a little bit of a juice and then four tablespoons of butter, all right, I’m turning my crock-pot on to low, and I will check on this in about six hours, okay, guys getting a late start this morning. I am just now on my way to the gym, meaning that it is Zippy’s time today we are having blue raspberry again. This is exciting. So what I do is whenever I buy all my zip fizzes, I take them out of the package.
I take them out of the box, they come in and I put them in just a regular container. I mix them all together, so it’s almost like zip fizz roulette every time I just reach in there and I grab one and I don’t know what flavor I’m going to have for the day. So blue raspberry is my jam. You guys, I don’t know where my oh, my god, here’s my opener right here ask and ye shall receive, haven’t used it in a while, okay still scary, oh, yes, okay still taking the plastic off because I’m not a heathen.
Okay, everybody! You know what I’m about to ask you to do. Okay, so look around see if there’s anybody in your immediate vicinity, you know, maybe you want to stand over to the side a little bit or maybe you want to get in everybody’s way, cuz in five. Four. Three two: oh, that sounds very Janet Jackson, but let’s do it. You know it feels good. You just plain. Oh, it feels good all right, taste test.
I love this stuff, whoa all right off to the gym. Okay, guys, I am done at the gym. It just feels really good to be active and to be moving so funny thing. I actually went to Meijer last night like for some reason. I was sitting at home. It was 7:30 at night and I was like I’m super bored, but I have a lot of energy, so let me just put on some music go to Meijer and dance through the aisles and just live my best life and I was getting it.
I was a rock star: each aisle was my runway. Also, I’m calculating my macros this week. You guys that is my pledge to myself. I am up some weight from being in the hospital, and so my goal is weight loss and if you want to lose weight, you have to know how much you’re eating at least I have to know how much I’m eating. So I’m going to get home, throw some things together, see what my macros are looking like and then that’s what’s going to determine what I cook this week.
So let’s do it, as you saw. I whipped up that bacon, so I cooked my bacon on two sheet pans at 375 for 14 minutes and then what I do is I open the oven to let some of the heat out and then I close it and then I bake it for one more Minute so it’s 15 minutes total, but at the 14th minute I let some heat out and maybe that’s just like superstition or placebo effect, but I really think it helps to cook the bacon but not burn it.
And while the bacon was cooking, I sat down and I made my meal plan. So the first thing I did was, I shouldn’t see. I just use pencil and paper, so I wrote down all the ingredients of all the different recipes that I’m going to make. So I’m making protein waffles and then I’m making the goodies peanut butter mix and they not have all the ingredients of my Mississippi pot roast. So I get all of the macros for a serving of each of those and then on my next page.
I incorporate those into my total meal plan so now I know that when I’m eating during the week, I am eating on plan to help me reach my goal, and this helps me to stop from snacking and to say: okay, maybe I’ll sneak in a handful of Nuts, here, maybe I’ll, sneak in something there. It’s like! No, because if it’s not on the list, it doesn’t help me achieve my goals. So now that that’s done, I’ve made a delicious omelet.
I use the tablespoon of butter, 3 eggs and the leftover bacon that I had you guys, I’m at nine slices of bacon total today and like I do not care. Okay, I just put those cookies in the oven and, of course the best part is like eating. The dough that’s leftover in the bowl ioannis this don’t taste like the exact middle of a Reese’s Pieces like this straight decadence. Well, it looks like the spoon has done all the Kin now time for nature spoon you might be asking autumn come on now.
It’s just scraps, have you no shame the answer’s? No, I’m going to shame this is my house. Let me look like shank. You look down lip this ball right in front of your face. Oh my gosh, look at this. Can you see it? I don’t know. I don’t care, I think you can really taste the spicy ranch. I am here for you ranch packet I make roast now I am a roast person. That’s all she wrote. That’s all she wrote.
Somebody comes get me. I am done today bye, okay, guys, I’m done with meal prep and I am elated number one, because it’s so early in the day and number two look. What I have meal number one is going to be this mound of protein waffles. I have enough for one waffle in one segment, so that’s going to be in total five segments of protein waffle, I’m going to be using this sugar-free syrup. It has aspartame, it has a skein, I don’t really care, and then I have two slices of bacon.
So waffle and bacon is meal number one and then my first neck is going to be a quest hero bar also don’t forget: I have enough room in my macros for a bulletproof coffee. Oh these protein waffles are very easy. You guys. Okay, here is the quest protein powder that I used one scoop of protein powder, 1 egg 1, tablespoon of butter, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and then as much liquid as you would like to thin it out, and that is it put that in a waffle maker And flat out there, you go meal number two look at this roast.
Can you see the texture? You guys I am spazzing out because it looks good and it tastes delicious and I’m going to be having some microwave green beans and a tablespoon of butter and then for my snack number, two I’m going to have these goodies peanut butter cookies and they look so Good and then, of course, I’m always going to be having jello Zvi, I String Powerade like any sort of those beverages that I want with some water, I’m going to be drinking water this week, but like this is the most excited.
I’ve been about a milk rat, and so long and everything turned out exactly great, and I cannot wait to show it to you in more detail on my what I eat Wednesday. Okay, guys, I’m done for the day, I’ve readed some TV I’ve relaxed. I made a delicious bulletproof coffee: let’s see: 12 ounces of coffee 1 tablespoon of butter; 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream 1 ounce of sweetener, 1 tablespoon of collagen and 1/2 cup of milk, and that’s it so I’m just chilling for the rest of the night.
Overall. Today was a great day like the thing that lets me know that I can do keto forever. Is that I can still get excited about the food a year and a half into it. I can still make something and be like. I cannot believe I get to eat this on the diet you know, like my roast, is such a success. Those peanut butter cookies like just to genuinely love the food that I eat like that, is just so awesome and I’m just so grateful to have the keto diet in my life.
