If you’re new to our blog, welcome here on two crazy kilos, we do different things like product reviews. We do recipe articles, sometimes we vlog our days. We talk about various keto topics and then every Monday we sit down on the couch for keto on the couch.
We just got ta talk about. What’s going on in our lives for the week, you can find us in different social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and we have a website which is too busy, keep us calm and that’s going to find all the different recipes. Now we do upload at least five new articles every single week, so make sure you subscribe to our Channel and don’t forget to it’s a little belt icon in that way, every single time we upload a new article, you’ll be alerted to it yeah.
I just realized that today is the first time we’re able to vlog in the car, with it’s stationary not have to have the engine on the air-conditioner it feels so nice outside and even though I’m probably like over killing it. Here. With my sweater weather, we got ta get it while the getting’s good, it’s like 70 degrees outside so anywhere else in the country. You know they’re going. Seventy degrees is not sweater weather, it is shorts weather, but it’s what I got and I got to work with it.
So we are going to kind of do a hodgepodge vlog. Today we have a bunch of stuff to do it’s a Monday. I did all my work this morning. I’ve got a turkey in the smoker because we’re going to work on some recipes throughout the week on what to do with your leftover, turkey. What do you do with leftover? Turkey? That’s got a few different ideas. One of them is using my new cross and making like a turkey potpie.
Oh, I can’t wait for that, so that was one of them we’re doing a meal prep. I just did a bunch of ground beef and then, when I get home after we go to the store, we’re going to make some ground beef meal, perhaps okay, and what else we doing we’re going out to eat we’re going out for lunch. We’ve got a lot of food going on yeah turkey, ground beef and going out to eat and going out to eat, and then we’re also going to go to sprouts to get a couple things for our cell, because I noticed they have the horizon heavy whipping cream.
On sale for just $ 2.99, a pint and that’s like cheaper than the non-organic brand and dude, we can go through it, especially with our with Thanksgiving coming out. Yes, should we stock up on our heavy cream? So, let’s get to the store? Oh wait before we do look what came in the mail today in the mail today, I’m so excited about this so found out about this from vivj, and I immediately went ordering it.
This is super coffee, we’re not affiliated with them, but I love super coffee. I’m like living off of this stuff, both the super coffee and the super creamer and you’re. Like the super creamer, my super car, I really like the the creamer, the maple pumpkin one, I’m going to be so sorry to see you go yeah, just under two cases. Left then you’re then you’re in trouble. So this is super coffee. This is like going to the store and buying one of those little Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts one, something like that, but mint chocolate chip is like your groove.
Oh yeah, I’m excited about this. I know they do cost about $ 3 apiece, which I thought was really expensive until I saw that the Dunkin Donuts ones are like 2 dollars and 80 cents. All of these things are expensive and they, the Dunkin Donuts ones, have like 50 grams of sugar in them. So nutrition on this once is it a new flavor any calories in the entire bottle? We got a plane flying over us. I hope they’re going somewhere.
5 grams of total fat, 10 grams of protein, okay, 1 total carbohydrate, not net carbohydrate, total carbohydrate, mind the whole bar ratios. Here’s the ingredients – and this is what’s really nice about it. They don’t even put like a bunch of nasty sweeteners or anything. So you have organic Colombian coffee, whey, protein concentrate or coconut MCT oil, monkford, natural chocolate, flavors, natural peppermint, flavors, natural flavors, potassium phosphate, GLE and gum organic, green coffee caffeine.
So it’s not chocolate chip, it’s mint and measurement. It’s mint chocolate peppermint a white chocolate peppermint. Well, I wouldn’t take a sip for this, so as far as I know, the company’s not actually selling on their website, you have to find it in the store or, I believe down below. I found it on a website called Oasis snacks. Okay, I think I think the thing is, if you spend $ 40 or $ 50, they gets $ 40.
You get free shipping, I, but I think they also don’t ship for free to California for some reason and that OS a snack seems to have like the inside track on a lot of snack food. Again, it is not overly chocolaty, which is really which is good for me. It’s it’s like coffee drink with a hint of mint chocolate, just a hint of mint Wow, just enough yeah that big swig that is good and that coffee is good cuz.
I’m I’m a coffee, aficionado yeah, so I’m going to come in and weigh on on the coffee. Flavor, it’s good. The coffee flavors is really good. Yeah I’ll leave a link for always and snacks, which is the only place that I know that you can get it online again, not affiliated, but we really like these and they have a lot of coupons for that place too. You may have to hide some of those. I only have two cases: let’s go to the store, talker dudes we’re actually going out the together for once these menus are very well loved.
Well, it’s like a lunchbox place. Have you’ve never been here? If you guys don’t have a Tucker dunes near you, they have a lot of good burgers. We’ve actually had this burger like before Kate out. Judging from this much marks, a lot of people have tried it yeah. So this is what we’re going to get it’s like. The most keto burger on here at six lights, to make in sunny egg to slice through the American and the cheddar and Tucker sauce get it.
So I know that we are helping the environment with these paper straws, but the things that, like just dissolve in your mouth, while you’re drinking, not my favorite thing. It’s so take a look at what we got here. We both have the same exact thing so into 1/2 cup burner. It has 6 slices of bacon, it has cheddar cheese and American cheese. I mean American cheese, isn’t the greatest I actually forgot to.
Usually, I tell them to likes about each other American cheese and just to all cheddar who wasn’t thinking that we’ve got an egg on top, not Rachel’s favorite super runny, but overall the burger is amazing and I am ready to get started so clearly that was terrible. Yeah we were just a little hungry like that, took less than five minutes to finish that burger finish, so we went to pay and the bill was $ 10 cheaper than is supposed to be, that’s not bad.
So the girl said that, on Mondays, the Mondragon’s were only $ 10 and set up the team, but we have a $ 30 gift card. They have to use the entire thing, so we’re just going to get another one and take it home and split it. For dinner sounds delicious. Okay, we just got two sprouts, we’re going to run in and grab a couple of things that we have coupons for and some things that are on sale and I’m excited that we’re actually going to be shopping on a full stomach.
Yes, we’re not going to buy anything, we’re not supposed to be eating strategy, so we’re here at sprouts and we found this Chompy. So how do you guys keep asking us to review this, but I have to tell you I’m looking at this ingredient label and I’m not super comfortable with it. I mean yes, it is only 66 calories. 2 grams of fat 8 grams of protein 7 total carbs 5 grams of fiber, so it’s only 2 net carbs per slice, but I’m not really comfortable with looking at these ingredients.
You’ve got soy flour, vital wheat gluten wheat, starch, wheat, protein wheat flour and then soybean oil, cinnamon salt, cultured wheat, vinegar, yeast, raisins enzymes. I have really worked hard to get we out of my diet, so this is just a little bit too much wheat for me to consume even for just trying it for the blog. Now we don’t want to completely disappoint you guys, so we are going to pick up these and review these.
These are leg fins and they’re, expensive, they’re $ 5.99, but we are going to review these because I know a lot of people keep asking us about them and I’m comfortable with these ingredients. So take a look at the ingredients: egg white, whole egg, cauliflower powder, olive oil, sea salt, xanthan gum, spices, citric acid, we’re going to get these, try them out and then we’re going to see if we can duplicate them.
How do you know looking at Aikido? Grocery cart in sprouts, you have a ridiculous amount of heavy whipping cream and sausage and eggs. These eggs are on sale $ 2.99 a dozen. Only in this store, the heavy cream is three dollars, and the expiration date is the end of January. I think we’re going to go home and just fill our pool up with it yep then we got some bacon and these are on sale and there were two dollars: two four five.
So we’re going to get a whole bunch of them and stick them in the freezer, especially with the holidays. So you guys know how much I like the KY two super creamer, that is the pumpkin spice, but I’m going to try this one, because I have been drinking quite a bit of the Chi 2 and this is only 15 calories for two tablespoons. So I know it’s good not going to be as creamy, but we’re going to give it a shot.
So I’ve been meaning to try this stuff, I’m so excited they actually have it. This is Death. Wish coffee. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this stuff. It is like supposed to be the world’s strongest coffee on the back and even says it’s highly caffeinated, so we’re going to get this. It is a little expensive, but we never go out for coffee anyway. It’s $ 20 for this bag. Definitely a keto grocery haul.
Joyce meyer would be proud. I put my cart back so, as we have said in numerous articles, if you don’t like the weather in south florida, wait a minute it’s hot out now it’s 80 degrees. When we left the house when we left the house two hours ago, it was 70 degrees. It’s now 80 at 4 o’clock in the afternoon. Here’s the worst part is the windows are all open in the house, and the air conditioner is off.
Oh no, we may be going home to a boiling room. The kids are home, though, so maybe they were smart enough to close the windows – Oh probably not doubtful, so I think everybody was looking at us like we were a little crazy. We spent a hundred and forty dollars in sprouts, which sounds like a lot, but I don’t think it’s a lot for sprouts no, and I think that we have enough begin to feed it army yeah.
So, in addition to what you saw at the very last minute, Rachel found they had their canned organic sprouts, brand pumpkin dollar. Here, dollar a can. That was like a dollar a can savings, so we bought 10 cans of it just number one for recipes number. Two to just have throughout the year, because sometimes it’s hard to find canned pumpkin down. Well, we’ve got Thanksgiving coming and I’m sure that mom is going to want a pumpkin pie yeah.
So, in addition to that, we bought six dozen eggs because the eggs were marked from $ 5.99 and dozen to $ 2.99 a dozen. This store only pasture-raised a lot of heavy cream a lot, but the expiration dates the end of January, and it was two dollars off a container and we go through a lot of heavy cream or knows we cook with a lot of heavy cream. We also bought a couple pounds of the sugar free bacon, and then we got that sausage, which is normally like five dollars for like one tube of it, was on sale two for five and it’s really good, because there’s like no chemicals or anything in it, we’re Going to make balls so I don’t think we have to go to the farmers market.
I got what I needed here: cuz we’re going to go home and make a shepherd’s pie as one of our meal prep for the week. So I needed cauliflower and some carrots and I just got the Nerds Browns. So we were going to stop at the store and look at a table. Maybe we can still stop real, quick, we’re not going to be here very long right. They have a lot of heavy cream in here. Well, maybe we should take that back home and then go back out.
Let’s do that, let’s do it. We got a table. Let’s go look at that and then we’ll go over what our meal prep is. So it was a busy day and, like you know, we went out to eat, we went food shopping, we were meal prepping and we decided after we went to like sprouts, let’s go and look for a table because we wanted something for our studio. This is like a really tall, it’s hard to tell with the article and like all the lights and everything, but it was this really cool bar table and it’s even got this cool bench.
Let me show the bench like: it’s got this really cool bench. Do you have pajama pants on now? That’s okay, so we needed a new table because, like we were dealing with like an old little dining room square table and so and we we have like tons of little folding tables to like put junk on. You know when we’re doing articles and for you to like teeter-totter your computer, computers are like piled on top of boxes, which were not sure when we’re live-streaming and stuff.
I guess we were really one of like a long table and we were going to build one like out of like an old door or something like that. Yeah we decide we have. This place was called rooms to go, but they have an outlet center and so Rachel’s like oh, I went with my mom the other day and we saw this table. I want you to see it. It was beautiful, it’s gorgeous, but nice and tall. The price was ridiculous: it was $ 300 for the base for the table and then the benches were $ 300 apiece and we’re like yeah.
We just can’t afford that yeah, even if we just got one bench that was going to be what $ 900 yeah. So what we decided we were going to do was I photographed everything, because I’m super handy and I own like every tool in the world when it comes to woodworking, several routers and how many routers. But we took like every photo from every angle and I’m like I’m going to go home and I’m going to build the table, I’m going to duplicate it with the exception of the iron bar.
That goes around the bottom to your feet, which I really wanted. But yeah, but I’m like I can build that table from a couple hundred bucks. Maybe yeah. You know maybe a little bit more, but it’s going to be some time consuming, but I knew I could do it and like then, we’ll just buy the bench because they had two benches. They had the one that we got, which was 300 and then they had another one that wasn’t as nice for 200.
More like we’ll just buy that bench and he was like if I could just keep the wood budget to 500 bucks. If I could just keep the table budget right at 500, right we’ll be good, we’ll be good as we’re leaving. I was like let’s just look at like they’re scratching, didn’t show room right, not really thinking that we’re going to find much and we were just. We were looking to see if they had any benches or barstools so that, instead of getting the bench, we could get like a couple of bar stools or something like that had we wanted something like table like bar, but we were in like making do right.
Um and there in the middle of the showroom, was our table right, not one like our table the table, the table, they won’t wanted, and I mean the only thing that is wrong with it and I’ll put a picture up right here was the corner of one Of the barstools has a tiny little tear in it but like I can fix that and give a leather repair kit and fix that, and I couldn’t believe my eyes. They were like the table is five hundred dollars, and that includes two benches and upgraded benches.
So I’m supposed to be like twelve hundred dollars for this whole nice table and everything and we paid 500 bucks. God is good, which I mean it is a lot of money like we have not bought furniture for ourselves in eight years, yeah B. Usually we good – and that was the Big Lots. Yeah like our old dining room table, came from Big Lots like when we got married, and I think that that was like a Christmas present from your mother yeah.
I think it was him, so a lot of our furniture is always like hand-me-down. I think it’s like the first, like new piece of furniture that we bought together, I think possibly because are done, are big. I built right, I’m holding our home master bedroom piece. I built it’s got a nice credenza in the back, what a storage unit the kids beds. I built our entertainment center I built so this has got to be really nice that you don’t have to try to find more time to build something yeah, that’s what I’m excited about because, like we have a lot going and it’s exactly one, so I mean God Really answers prayers, you’re right I mean this is exactly what we wanted and it was the price was, was something we could actually afford.
So yeah great guy – it’s not here, because we have all the lights on and have the air conditioner off. But what was really cool about and we’ll show you we’re going to go? Show you guys the meal prep that we different we can Anthony helped. I actually cuz. We were going back out to get this like. I had him make the shepherd’s pie. I had already brown at the ground, beef and I was like here’s. The cauliflower just make the shepherd’s pie follow the recipe from our website.
He likes cooking, he loves to cook. But what was really cool is again. We only needed one bench. Cameras on that side. We’re sitting on this side road. We need a second $ 300 bench for the bench matches the bar height in our kitchen, perfectly, which we’ve never had bar stools, that are the right had the wrong size, because the barstool we were using matched the table that we were using before for this, which Was like one of those like what does it called counter height yeah like a counter, is laughs that anytime, you were sitting right yeah.
You are always at the kid table because you always were like this little right trying to eat your food, so God just it was awesome home awesome. So look at this. Isn’t this cool look at how this thing perfectly matches the bar height for the kitchen? So you used to only have those two little bar stools. Now we can actually have three or four people even sit here if they’re, like kids or something so come sit down and we’ll sit on this side for once ignore our dirty kitchen, and this is the meal prep.
Look at this is our carb splurge for Thanksgiving. You look like a pumpkin, it’s a kabocha squash. Oh my gracious. We have been looking for this forever. It’s not like zero carb, but it’s not ridiculous, but I’m going to try it and we’re going to have that for Thanksgiving. It looks like it thinks it’s an avocado, yeah, okay, so here’s what we got! First of all, we have a turkey finishing up in the oven.
I had it on the smoker and then I’m just finishing up in there, because I turn the smoker off, because I was out of pellets, so we have over here the taco pie, which is a fan. Favorite fan favorite. This is a shepherd’s pie, sort of using ground beef. We didn’t use ground lamb because we bought five pounds of our six times around beef at Costco, and then we have everybody’s favorite, cheeseburger casserole casserole and we just grabbed some a bag of the Costco bacon bits that are already cooked for this one.
Only because we had the bacon, we bought the bacon at sprouts, but since we were running around buying a table and everything else tract, I didn’t feel like baking anything so that is our meal preps. We have these three things. Each one of these has eight servings. Then we have an entire turkey. It was like a 16 pound turkey that we got at Walmart for $ 8.00. It was like and it wasn’t even a bad brand.
I don’t remember, was it butterball, it was and that’s the thing with the turkey like the value is awesome. When you touch them on sale, they were selling it for 50 cents, a pound or like how do we know we bought two of them and like we’re? Not even making one for Thanksgiving we’re just like we want some turkey now is the time of year to get it, and it’s going to stretch so far I mean in the past.
We used to go to all these like the day after Thanksgiving when they clear them all out and there’s taken like eight dollars off and you pay like five dollars. A turkey we’d buy six or seven yeah and stick them in the freezer, because a lot of people don’t know like we learn that from because we knew people that worked in the warehouses, yeah and those turkeys are in the freezer. At the like grocery store warehouses.
For two or three years anyway, I couldn’t believe that but yeah, it’s true, so keep it frozen. It’s been frozen, yeah. So for the rest of my mail, you saw what we ate for lunch. You ate some breakfast right. I paid a couple of eggs, so you had some eggs and stuff and then right before we left. I had four leftover wings from Saturday when we had those wings stopped, because I didn’t eat all my wings and then I’m going to finish off.
I’ve got about 3/4 of a pound of ground beef. If you can see there, I’ve got two tablespoons of the Rao’s tomato tomato sauce on here uh-huh. Then I’ve got two tablespoons of ricotta cheese because I had some left over from making our recipes and stuff way down. Then I’m going to eat some keto brick. This is a cookies and cream one and your coffees over there and I do coffee. You know it’s not a o’clock at night, where I’m coffee is this: the new County at the firm’s yeah, that’s and then I’m having a cup of coffee with one serving three tablespoons of the tie to the cream, one, the sweet cream.
So this is really good. It’s nowhere near as creamy, obviously as the the Chi maple pumpkin, one yeah, but it’s not as many calories, either 15 calories. What is it one serving two serving this two tablespoons? It’s one carb yeah. It was one color yeah, so you know not quite as good, but it’s another thing. If you were going to have multiple cups of coffee like rachel is per day, we figured we try it.
It was the same price, so I think you actually got it on sales. Just five bucks. I probably usually lean more towards the Chi, especially if you can get it on sale, so I did want to mention real quick before we close this vlog out. We keep talking about the Oasis snacks, which is where I’ve been getting the super coffee from, because sometimes it’s cheaper than buying it directly from Chi, which is really weird and they’ve had all of the new flavors.
While right, we were getting ready to close this out. I actually got an email for a coupon code that they’re having for I guess kind of like Thanksgiving Black Friday, but it’s effective now and I’m going to put it right here, cross them on the screen, because other members, like thanks something. So it’s right here across bottom screen, I’ll leave a link down below it’s 15 % off your purchase. Hey that’s going to save a lot of money again, we are not affiliated with them at all.
We don’t make any money off of them. I do not all pedo products, but they do have some keto products, but I found them looking for the super coffee, so I’m passing it off to you guys yeah, so so that is today’s vlog. I know it’s not quite as interesting as some of our other gloves, but it’s just been a hectic day, so I think we’ve gotten a lot accomplished because we don’t have to do any cooking for the rest of the week.
You know maybe a little bit of vegetables and some eggs or something like that, but the main meal for the boys are done. It’s just nice to know it’s over yep and we can do some filming. We have some product reviews to do. We’ve got some recipe. Articles we’re going to do this week and we got ta get ready for Thanksgiving. I know I’m so excited well.
