Is Blood a SUPERFOOD?

I get asked about it every single day. I don’t know if they just have an affinity for certain bodily fluids. Maybe we should have discussed that in the know, nut november article outside of vampires, the most famous consumption of blood, is probably the Masai tribe.

In Africa they prized the blood and milk of their cattle, as well as the cows themselves in Maasai culture. The size of your herd indicates your status in the community, so accumulating animals, instead of consuming them, is common practice. This is why milk plays a huge role in a traditional Maasai diet in some part, in almost every single meal, whether it be soured milk or butter, they aren’t complete carnivores, though.

What most people fail to mention is that the Masai also eat tubers, honey and forest plants, so by harvesting milk and blood from the animal. The Maasai tribe are able to keep their herd size larger important to their cultural beliefs, but it also makes sense in the context of famine having a steadily available. Food source of blood and milk is better for survival. Then going all-in on a beef BBQ.

We know that most tribes and groups of people did not drink blood for one reason or another. Fishermen try, for instance, or even one that hunts smaller animals. But what, if you did, hunt the larger rumen and animals, you wanted say a bison or caribou? Yes, there might be a pool of blood where you kill the animal where you cut open the animal, but even so the blood would not have been drank by everyone in the tribe.

It would also be very difficult to gather it’s not like the Maasai, where they have a controlled bleeding of the animal, and normally the animal is bleeding all over the place, as you were, hunting it or killing it plus blood coagulates very quickly, making it even more Difficult to store for later consumption right here I have some blood and this one on the left. It has like a gelatinous mass of you know the blood protein and and the plasma is on the outside it just completely separated in this one.

I added some vinegar to it and that prevented some coagulation, but, as you guys could see, there’s still this jell-o blob of blood. In the middle of the jar I had to go down to a live kill market. To get this, I had to buy the whole goat just to get the blood, and this is all of the blood from one entire goat that we controlled the bleeding of, and I don’t know how you would prevent coagulation. Maybe if you just strained out the fibrin using a mesh strainer when you kill the animal, but our indigenous ancestors didn’t have a mesh strainer.

This makes it very unrealistic to be consuming blood. The Maasai tribe did, you, know, stir it as it came out of the animal and they had clay pottery. So you know, logistically speaking, it might be possible, but definitely a rare occurrence in humans in our natural environment, and this is why blood is so hard to access. Now you have to purchase it directly from the slaughterhouse. It’s illegal to sell in most states due to regulation concerns mainly for waterborne illnesses, and it’s like an extra step in the slaughtering process.

Normally they would just kill the animal and bleed it out on the floor now, they’d have to gather the blood, maintain that it’s just not worth it for most lauder houses from a nutritional perspective. Blood is almost entirely protein, so it contains a large amount of the water-soluble B. Vitamins probably has some vitamin C when fresh is an excellent source of sodium, but not so much any other minerals.

Blood is incredibly high in iron and it has some copper as well, but no significant amount of the other elements. There’s some cholesterol and we know cholesterol – is needed for many metabolic functions, especially the absorption of vitamin d3. So, on paper I like blood for two reasons: one is that it has readily available B vitamins just milk does it has a high bioavailability, because it is a liquid high amount of amino acids, very good for methylation.

If you had a headache and drank blood or milk for that matter, it would probably be gone in minutes due to the antioxidant benefits of these foods is that blood is perfect for someone who has anemia. Obviously it has a ridiculous amount of iron, but it also has copper, which is needed to absorb iron in the body. Some people might think that blood has adrenaline, but the half-life of adrenaline is only a few minutes, and even if you did drink blood straight from an animal full of adrenaline, it doesn’t get absorbed by consumption.

Just because you’re putting something in your body doesn’t mean you digest it or absorb it. You would have to physically inject adrenaline into your veins to feel the effects. Any benefits people see from drinking blood would be from easily available B vitamins and the high iron content. Most notably the high bioavailability of the amino acids in the blood, so we could I mean we could try this, I’m not too enthusiastic about this, because this is mostly vinegar and it’s still coagulated.

It’s like Alvin. It’s a. I didn’t put that much vinegar in here. This is an organic red wine, vinegar, a pretty good taste, but you know I put like three tablespoons in here but, as I just showed you guys, there’s like a jello, a jello mass of blood in here. So I don’t know if I’d be like drinking the plasma and not having the blood, but, like you know, the Messiah would eat this like this blood mass, they would eat that, and now this doesn’t really taste that bad.

You know you could. Let me just get a piece of it like you could eat this. I mean it tastes a little bit like vinegar and then on the end. I get that really really metallic irony. Copper tastes like you can really taste that iron and the copper in this blood – and this is super fresh. You know this animal was literally slaughtered yesterday, so this blood doesn’t have that much flavor to it, but you but yeah the vinegar is really overpowering in here.

Not really much to talk about from a flavor standpoint, slightly metallic, as I said, do I see this as something that’s very hydrating? No, you would take a few sips of this and you would not want any more of this. Maybe if you were deficient in iron or anemic, you know you would start shoving this and really crave it. From a hydration perspective, I’ve tried a Massiah diet of blood and milk for a little while it’s just not enough to hydrate yourself, I still needed to drink water, mainly because you know when I drank the blood.

I just didn’t really want to drink that much of it and when I drank the milk you know your body has to process all of the other nutrients in the milk. Milk is very high in calcium, so, depending on your individual genetic capacity to tolerate milk and blood, you might need to drink water. You might not need to drink water if you’re really adept at handling lactose. If you have a very active lactase gene, you might be able to hydrate on just blood and milk, but by no means should you think it’s superior to do so.

Isn’t more natural? I wouldn’t say that you know blood or milk has any less contaminants than our modern water supply that it’s any different for you and it’s definitely more stress on the kidneys on the body to consistently process nutrients, minerals and elements. And then, if you’re, one of those people that you know don’t really have to drink that much fluid on a daily basis, that’s a whole different story and, as we went over from the nutrient perspective, it’s just iron and copper.

You know there’s no significant fat Seibel vitamin content here, although the protein B, vitamins, iron and copper are definitely, you know a welcome addition to any diet. So I guess that’s it. If you guys could please, like the article, you know getting my hands on this blood and dressing up a it’s a little bit of work here and there I spend like 12 bucks on this vampire cape and I’m getting flashbacks from my bartending days, because this is Actually, my my bartending uniform that I had in a couple places for those of you guys asking like: can we get blood on Frankie’s free-range meat, maybe in the future the more support we get from? You guys the more inclined we are to to go out and seek those things, but right now the amount of people asking for blood and how difficult it is for us to get it.

It doesn’t make sense. You know not that many people wanted the price we’d have to charge to get. It is extra nautical. So just keep that in mind guys. That being said, we do have a bunch of nutrient dense animal foods available on Frankie’s free-range meat that are a much better addition to your diet than drinking blood. From a vitamin perspective, if you guys could please subscribe, if you haven’t, I definitely hit that Bell icon and, above all, please share the article.

If you guys would like to support me further, you can also check out Frankie’s Naturals for minimal ingredients, minimally processed hygiene and cosmetic products. Thanks again for joining me guys, if you’d like to reach out to me for consultations, send me an email, Frank, a to Fano at gmail.Com. I know I said I was selling a carnivore doodoo the other day for you vegans, but unfortunately we don’t have any carnivore blood for you.

Guys, though, would make you a lot healthier. You

Caviar is a SUPERFOOD!

Salmon roe is here. There are many names for caviar from fish eggs to roe. Some of you guys might have gone to a sushi restaurant and seen ikura, masago or 2b go on the menu, but caviar is technically supposed to be from wild beluga sturgeon in the Caspian Sea. Now caviar is used as a general term for any salted fish eggs. What they do is they take the egg sac out of the fish.

They separate the eggs from the membrane they lightly salt them, and then they either put it in jars or cans. Freeze, it refrigerate it whatever caviar might just be the healthiest food on the planet. Just like liver, it contains all of the vitamins, minerals, elements and fatty acids. Our bodies need, in their most bioavailable form the animal form. The nutrients in certain plant foods require conversion in the body, whereas the nutrients from animal foods are directly absorbed.

The main discrepancy between liver and fish eggs is that liver has a substantially higher vitamin A retinol content and fish eggs have much higher omega-3 fatty acids. Epa and DHA. The DHA in fish eggs is actually in the phospholipid form, which is said to pass through the brain, much easier and be absorbed better, but that’s never actually been proven. In a study I found out about fish eggs in Weston prices, book nutrition and physical degeneration.

It’s a book about a dentist who explore native people that were still living off of the land, their natural diets. These people actually used fish eggs as fertility and nutrition for pregnant women, nursing women, children during developmental stages for its incredibly high nutrient content. If indigenous groups did not have access to fish eggs, they would always have another high nutrient food, maybe some type of shellfish, fatty insect or organ meat in Alaska.

When food is plentiful, full and bears have fattened up, they actually killed the salmon and only eat the brain and the eggs of the salmon. That’s because those are the two highest nutrient foods on the animal. If you think about it, a fish egg is basically a tiny fish, so it encapsulates the entire nutrition of the animal. It’s like eating nose to tail except you don’t have to eat. You know the whole animal piece-by-piece, regardless of what fish the eggs are from.

The nutrient profile is similar per calorie, that is, salmon eggs, for instance, are higher in fat. They have a higher fat percentage, so the nutrients might be more concentrated, but calorie for calorie all fish eggs are equal, whether it’s cod, roe herring, roe, sturgeon, Roe. All fish roe is a super nutrient-dense food. It’s just the facts of protein ratio varies depending on the species of fish, and we can also assume it matters if the fish is farm raised or wild caught, that will directly affect the nutrients and the omega profile of the fish eggs.

You have to be pretty careful with making sure that the fish eggs, the caviar you’re buying, is not from farmed low quality fish that the fish is on some type of natural diet. So the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio is correct. If we take a look at 100 grams of salmon roe, which is 200 calories, the vitamin profile is literally complete. We have a decent amount of vitamin, A all of the B vitamins, vitamin C vitamin D, vitamin E – and there is definitely vitamin K in salmon roe, because vitamin K is contained in all high quality animal foods.

The test is expensive to conduct, so sometimes they don’t test for it. The vitamin C might actually be misleading because sometimes they add ascorbic acid. As a preservative to fish eggs. Now fish eggs do contain vitamin C, but usually when you salt, the food, it loses its vitamin C content. The anti scorbutic properties of the food are lost, so I have to do some nutrient testing in the future on salmon or get more correct data.

Maybe we’ll do that later this year, the vitamin D and E content are incredibly high for an animal food. These nutrients are usually specific to higher cholesterol, animal foods such as eggs, brains and, of course, fish eggs. Fish eggs are also complete from both a mineral and element perspective as they contain every single one of them in reasonable amounts. It’s worth noting. They have a significant iodine content as well.

So if you’re consuming fish eggs on a daily basis, you probably don’t need to supplement iodine fish eggs even have conjugated linoleic acid, which has been shown to have various health benefits. They contain arachidonic acid as well a fatty acid, specific to animal foods and, just like DHA, our brains require a certain amount of arachidonic acid. Every day. Of course, fish eggs are incredibly high in epa and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.

They are unparalleled, possibly with the exception of animal brains. Of course, I wouldn’t be mr. Salmon roe if I didn’t have some for you guys to taste today. Here we have some red caviar and the beauty of this food is a testament to its nutrient profile. Up close, we see the very pretty red pearls, almost as pretty as me, and when we bring up fish eggs, we have to bring up the conversation of food palatability, how a food tastes in its raw natural state and in the case of fish eggs yeah.

They added a little bit of salt to them, but there really isn’t a tastier food in nature that hasn’t been changed, and if we’re going to look at foods in nature and ones that tastes the best without cooking them, seasoning them fermenting them. They are all animal foods. When you ferment, an animal food, you can increase the palate ability in a natural way, but a lot of the modern things we do from salting to processing to very specific cooking methods.

You know unless you’re just throwing a piece of meat over a fire. You can argue that it’s not too. Naturally, this food palatability is important because, usually how a food tastes in its natural state is an indicator of its nutrient properties. If you were to take bone now, for instance, that had been fermenting in the femur bone of an animal for a couple of weeks, because the Coyotes couldn’t break into it, then it would taste like cheese and the reason these foods taste good is because every single Nutrient in the food reflects in the taste of it.

If a food has certain vitamins, minerals, elements and fatty acids in the food, you can literally taste them in the boot. You can taste, copper, you can taste iodine, you could taste every single vitamin that’s contained in the food and when you have all the vitamins in balanced amounts like we do in fish roe, it makes sense that the food tastes amazing, and not only does it taste. Amazing in its unaltered State it also satiates you very quickly.

If you have a few tablespoons of fish roe you’re going to be full, I would love to see someone try to eat like a pound of salmon or at once. You would get a couple bites in and feel full because it’s so nutrient dense, it’s literally satiating your appetite, although there is little variance in the nutrient profile calorie for calorie the taste of fish eggs varies greatly. That’s why some fish eggs are super expensive, like sturgeon, caviar and salmon.

Roe isn’t really too expensive. The fish eggs will literally taste like the fish they are coming from. So salmon roe is going to taste like salmon when tasting fish, eggs or caviar. I believe you’re supposed to use a plastic or nonmetal spoon because it alters the taste. I’ve never really noticed this, but let’s give some of the ROE a try, there’s so much going on here. You have that cholesterol, richness, that’s specific to foods like eggs and brains.

You have a slight iodine flavor. You have. I know that complex salmon flavor it’s like tasting the ocean in the form of a scrambled egg. That’s how I would describe the flavor. The texture is like a soft pearl that pops in your mouth and then that rich cholesterol, a liquid, comes out. This is like the best food you could feed to a baby or a child. Not only would they love it, it’s like super colorful and approachable.

The salmon roe is tasty. I would give it about an 8 out of 10 from a flavor perspective, but there’s a reason. Sturgeon Roe is so much more expensive. Here I have some hackleback roe. It’s a type of sturgeon. The pearls are black. This is what you think of when you, you know when you see caviar like the black fish eggs, yeah, there’s a reason, there’s a reason. Caviar is made from sturgeon. The flavor is completely different.

It’s buttery it’s more complex. It doesn’t have as much of an iodine flavor, of course, you’re not supposed to eat caviar with the spoon like this, but I mean you’re on a carnivore, a keto diet. This is ensuring you’re not getting anything negative. Now, if you’ve never tried sturgeon roe, it can be on the expensive side, but on Franky’s free-range meat, our goal is to make everything affordable. So we are taking a profit loss and providing it to everyone, so they can experience it.

This is something that maybe I would have once or twice a month on a special occasion: it’s not prohibitively expensive, but it’s expensive enough that you couldn’t really eat it every day, whereas you could eat the salmon or every day. So if you guys haven’t tried sturgeon Roe specifically, I encourage you just for the experience, I’m honestly one of those people who don’t really care about the experience with certain things, but when I ate sturgeon Roe for the first time I was like you know, it truly Is amazing, so if you guys would like to check out Frankie’s free-range meat comm, we are offering salmon roe in that portion, as well as the sturgeon row in the same portion.

This is half a kilo of salmon roe we’re going to be offering it in four containers because having one big container like this is a little ridiculous and the sturgeon Roe is going to come like this. It is in a one ounce container. So, thank you guys for joining me today. If you have any more questions about fish, roe, fish, eggs, caviar feel free to. Let me know down in the comments below, if you guys could please, like the article subscribe hit that Bell icon and share it.

If you can, if you guys would like to support me further, you can check out some of the other articles on my youtube, blog and, of course, place an order with Frankie’s free-range meat.

What we eat on Keto | Keto at BJ’s and Sprouts | Vlog

If you’re new to our blog welcome here are two crazy Keita’s. We do different things like product reviews. We do recipe articles. Sometimes we do vlogs like this. We talk about various keto topics and then every Monday we sit down on the couch for keto in the couch we just kind of 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 crazy, ketones calm and that’s we’re going to find all very different recipes.

Now we do upload at least 5 new articles every single week, so make sure you subscribe to our Channel and don’t forget to hit the little bell icon in that way, every single time they upload a new article, you’ll be alerted to it yeah. So today’s article is going to be a little bit different. It started out as a like what I eat in a day, vlog and then things kind of got hectic and one day rolled into another and it kind of turned into article of shenanigans article shenanigans that we went to the post office.

We went to bj’s, we went to sprouts and then we also included a little bit of what we ate in there so part of the fact that, throughout this article, we’re wearing a lot of different sets of clothes, all kinds of things. Oh, let’s get into the article every morning. She needs to run around and make noise very proud of it. It’s new to her, but it was actually in the bottom of the closet because they were like deep discounts.

We bought a bunch of them and what are you doing? I have a recipe articles are very doing this morning. Okay, she’s, like I can’t do it that I have a recipe on making you cringe. Okay, what is that? It’s called how Rachel does as if is so. First, you got to get your bottle. Opener read autumn hito bar / read autumn key to a bottle opener. That was like genius. I’ve heard a like think about doing that totally genius.

This. This recipe show love to write. This will make her cringe. So you, then, you put your zip fist, I’m starting the day with a Limone zip is this: is my group, after fruit punch after fruit punch and we’re out of fruit punch, because we drank all those now we’re down to the moans it fizzes on sale at Costco – and so I just ordered you, some fruit punch and I ordered meal alone, stay off my Lamone, that’s my new grade no too bad, and I always like to do this in a mason jar.

That’s my favorite way to drink as if this, and then you just stir it. No, we do not you shake it. It even says on the tube shaped vigorously right autumn: hey Rachel, yeah we’ve got mail, you want to go, get the mail. He owns this couch. She knows she’s not supposed to be on it. Yeah right, she’s, on that couch every day, topical sit, sit, sit, wait till you see her Halloween costume she’s, a buddy.

Look Tabitha! Look what’s right here. What is that? Are you going to try your new dog food? Maybe with maybe Bo will eat it, try it so we also need to go to BJ’s because we are out of toilet paper. Thank you. Yes, I was basically going to put a no poop rule for everyone. Caleb came to me last night and he was like. Oh dear, oh, the paper in the garage he’s like need to. Let me know when there’s no toilet paper.

What can we do for the family? We got to get everybody on. I love it. Her mom is on and actually her mom had type 2 diabetes. So just like my mom and was able to get off medication, so that was it. That’s a huge big record for you makeup pouches. I guess! Oh, my goodness! Oh my gracious, so she recently did a Dollar Tree haul and I saw these little these little guys. Even in her in the thumbnail – and I saw a present them – and I was like oh my gosh – it looks like me and Joe.

I have to get these so bad. Look at this even a purple background and I have not been able to find it at our Dollar Tree. So awesome. I don’t know with the purple background, just like purple kind of goes good. Oh my gosh, I love sweet and strong. Oh my gosh! This is awesome, Wow Rachel’s, all about postcards. Oh, this is beautiful. Oh my gracious! I love this. Oh my goodness Christi! Thank you! You go! Oh yes, oh my gosh.

I need this. I’m going to paint Rachel’s toes so, oh, my goodness Christi and there’s a little card. Let’s see it says, bless your heart for being so nice you’re. So nice bless your bar. You can read that it says Rachel just wanted to send you a little package full of goodies hope you have a wonderful day: hon love, Kristy, Davis, Kristy Davis. You are awesome, oh my goodness! Thank you so much this.

Oh my gosh! This is totally going in my purse right now. Thank you. Let’s go to BJ so that we can wipe our buds. Yes, please hey not for nothing but we’re in BJ’s and it’s October 15. It’s Christmas time, it’s only the middle of October. There is only one thing that Joe is brand loyal over and that is his toilet paper only by style. You know why why? Because it’s a thousand sheets laughs along there and the bottom line, is it’s only getting flushed down the toilet, so I don’t need expensive stuff on my, but you don’t want like a comforter.

No, what’s wrong with you. You know what the problem with that giant thing in pepperoni. I would absolutely deed that entire thing in like a day. What is that called javelin javelin? Here’s something interesting in the Monster Energy section. It’s like it’s kind of like a kind of thing. Yes, is it’s healthy energy, no calories, no sugars, no carbs! It’s 17 dollars for a pack of 12. So that’s about three dollars.

Cheaper than z-bo yeah see the energy drinks, but I don’t think I would like any one of those flavors. They do have all the monsters, though I actually want to try some of these flavors, because this is like much cheaper than drinking the bangs we’re going to have to try some monsters. I’m just can’t commit to an entire case. There’s a lot of them. Look at all of these different flavors – I don’t that one I think, has sugar, but this one is zero sugar and this one is zero sugar.

When we were at, he talked on the one. I liked him the last time I tried him. I thought they tasted like battery acid a little bit so here’s something that I see a lot of people drink this sparkling ice they’re having a 24 pack for $ 15. That’s looks super cheap. You get eight cranberry, frost, eight women, lime and eight ginger lime. We’ve! Never tried them, I’ve never tried it. Let’s try it we’re going to spend $ 15 and trying to no we’ve never tried it.

This is a lot of beverage. We could not keep this stuff in the house. I think Anthony drinks it I do. I think he’s got a straw in the bottle. I told him he’s going to start paying for because every time I turn around like, I can’t find it. He uses the whole bottle in, like one city he’s like that old lady. That puts it on everything, so they have giant boxes of table salt. I think that they need to bring in Redmond grill salt and have their paint buckets of salt.

Here we actually have to order more we’re like halfway through that ten pound bucket already you’re spilling all the salt everywhere clean up on aisle 30 look Rachel. It’s junk food disguised as health food, organic peanut butter. I need this for a recipe. This is actually pretty clean: five total carbohydrates, three grams of fiber, the only ingredients are peanuts and sea salt and then you have Jeff made from peanuts and sugar.

Oh Rachel. I don’t know what you’re going to do, but we’re almost out of root beer, zva you’re, going to have to go to all these other flavors yeah cuz, there’s only two six-packs left and a half of those are mine. No, yes, any root beer, no you’re going to have to drink Cola. No, do you hear Anthony practicing, really good, it’s getting ready for Wednesday. What are you getting ready for here? I am working on our review article from the killer Creamery that new salted camel flavor interesting.

I want to see the word I would describe. It is interesting. Yeah wasn’t bad. It was just a very interesting flavor. You know it kind of reminded me of when we used to make Vitamix ice cream, this of an add broccoli and things like that, I’m trying to hide the good stuff from the kids. So this is my awesome. Look at that. It’s like the length of a cruise ship, actually sometimes I’m still turning on my third monitor and then I’m having my basically four monitors.

Oh my gracious! That’s only if I’m really getting into something, but this is why I like this monitor because, like working on a article, I have this entire timeline going. It’s Mission Control, but it’s nice because I can have this and then I can have like my color correcting on the side or I can like break it down into three windows or two windows, so it’s actually doable. It’s super helpful. It’s definitely making things because before I’d have to have like window on top of window – and it would be like this much smaller window like I’d – have like that’s what it would look like and obviously now with the way I have it is, you can see everything Just by like expanding it, look at how much more I need to see.

What’s going on. Oh my gracious, are you really going to do this podcast, I’m like so excited? I can’t believe this and I’ve got a little bit of like armpit, sweat and like diarrhea. You know how, like you, get excited and yeah like I’m too excited, I think so we are going to hit the sprouts because believe it or not. We have no eggs left in our house and I looked online last night say: who’s got eggs on sale and they have pasteurized eggs, buy one get one free, so we’re headed to sprouts.

So it’s probably super embarrassing going around inside of sprouts with me because I’m wearing like pajama shoes like house shoes, but like slippers for going to bed. Why? Because I about took off the back of my heel trying to walk out the door this weekend and like yeah, so my butt is healing, but my foot now is gone and it really hurts putting on shoes so long as you’re not wearing Crocs. No, I probably should have Crocs if I had Crocs at least they would be actual plastic shoes and not free shoes like these shoes, but it is what it is.

Everybody says Crocs are like super comfortable, but they just look ridiculous and I crack up every time. I see that picture of like if you keep wearing Crocs your foots going to turn into this. I mean: isn’t that picture ridiculous. You think that could actually happen. Yeah Anthony just bought a pair of Crocs and I just keep making fun of them for him because he brews always like Crocs are silly looking.

You know, but you get a girlfriend and all of a sudden everything that they say makes sense we’re going into crowds. Yep she’s actually wearing house slippers to go food shopping and sprouts. At least I have a bra on so we here in sprouts – and this really intrigued me look at this organic sprout of our pumpkins. He barges five ingredients. The only problem is, I turned it over to look at the nutritional label and it’s as good as 18 total carbs per bar 250 calories.

They look at this zero grams of dietary fiber and the ingredients are sprouted pumpkin seeds, flax seeds dates raw agave nectar. So what I understand is how is there no fiber in this when it’s got flax seeds in it? This product is more like it sprouted organic flax, snacks, which is going to be kind of similar to my one ingredient, flax crackers, but look at a spicy fiesta. Look at the ingredients here prior to flax, seed, sprouted, sunflower seeds, lime juice, sprouted sesame seeds, the cilantro ski slope, garlic powder, spices in jalapeno, seven total carbohydrates per serving five grams of dietary fiber and there’s three servings in this bag.

We are going to try that this is the kind of stuff that just really upsets me. Chicken chips sounds build, fried chips, look at the ingredients. First of all, it’s got 10 grams of peda hydrates and no grams of fiber. It’s chicken chips and tapioca flour expelled us hi away the sin far away. Absolutely you go hit with baking chips. Why do I want piglets bacon tears, especially at 15? Okay, we’re done in sprouts.

We tried to film some things in there, but there was like somebody in every single aisle yeah. They were like demoing like Laura bars everywhere and we used to eat those. Are you still in love? Laura bars, pre keyed out. I didn’t think they were that tasty, but it was kind of like that was health, food yeah. So let’s go over what we got so I got some of this topo Chico topo chica. I don’t know buddy keeps talking about how like great it is, and so was on.

Sale was like $ 3 for the four bottles. It’s like, I guess a Mexican like mineral water like that, and this is a natural grapefruit flavor. It says twist of grapefruit. Unfortunately, like I don’t have a bottle opener with me: we need when I autumns bottle opener. Oh yeah. I don’t know why we carry one with us, we’ll have to try that later we’ve got go wrong: Organic black snacks yeah. So I did a little shot of this inside because I saw those coconut there’s pumpkin seed bars.

Yes, oh great again, I was like how does something have flax seed as the second ingredient and it has no fiber. Then you look at this something’s, not right and the flax seed. It says: there’s 5 grams of fiber, so something’s not right. So we got two flavors spicy psst pizza, I’m more thinking about trying to duplicate this than anything getting hot in the car because we’ve the air conditioning off next up.

I got some loose tea, oh yeah, because we used to go to what was that Teavana. All the time, and now they don’t yeah and I had bought Rachel like some nice teapots or anything like that. I’m going to turn the air conditioning on so it may get a little while with the wind, I’m sorry, but it’s I know, and I have a sweatshirt on because I’m freezing in the store and I’m boy so we’ll turn it up a little bit.

So we got some pepperoni. This is from natural originals, Dietz and Watson yeah. I want to make a pizza, so I was like. I definitely want some pepperoni and I didn’t look like the little dollar bag of garbage. From that doesn’t hurt my feelings. Then we got some Brazil nuts. They were five dollars off yet paint a pound, eight dollars a pound for Brazil nuts, so I bought like 3/4 of a pound. I’m just going to have to be careful because I can easily eat this entire bag.

In a sitting me too, and I think a quarter of a cup of Brazil nuts has like 250 calories. Something else that I could eat in one sitting would be this package of pastrami yeah, I’m in the mood for like a Rachel sandwich. Yeah like topples with some caraway seeds or something in there, and then you know like some of our sauerkraut with pastrami. Yes, I forgot Swiss cheese down. Well, there’s all these across the street, so without Swiss cheese.

All right so then we’ve got some bacon, jalapeno cowboy burgers yep. There was no deal. I just really liked them $ 5.99, a pounds. Then we got some uncured applewood smoked, bacon, yeah. Their bacon is really good. It wasn’t on sale of like $ 8 a pound, but it’s really good. I don’t know if it’s Lucky’s, good they’re, paleo bacon, is pretty yeah. I really like this stuff here we got like this was the deal of the day a lot of it had the asparagus was on sale, four pounds for $ 5, and this has burgers has been working out, but you had to buy four pounds, but one pound Was three dollars and 99 cents is buy one time for $ 3.

99 or buy four pounds for five dollars, so we will be eating asparagus for the next couple days. Yes, I see you complain, yeah, that’s because you look at the size of this asparagus like right. It out usually they’re like half the size of a pencil, and these things are like twice the size of a Sharpie magic marker. I know they’re like huge, so yeah we got don’t feel a little girly man that can have like a fight.

So that’s what we got at sprouts, we’re going to go home. I think, is that everyone well, we did get something else yeah. So we didn’t I’m not this catch, it’s not bad. I got it really for the kids, because there was a coupon for two dollars when it descends. It was $ 5.99 marked down to three dollars and 49 cents and they keep eating all of our good catch. I can’t complain but like they’re eating all my alternate sweets catch up, which is $ 9 or $ 10, a bottle and Anthony uses like a half a bottle on a burger yeah and every time I go to get ketchup, there’s no ketchup, no more for you! So this stuff, I thought it was interesting to the ingredients in this tomato puree, which is water tomato paste.

Then it has apple vegetable puree, which is carrot, butternut, squash and spinach, and then they have vinegar, salt, onion powder and allspice, so nothing bad. No so it’s 1 tablespoon as a serving size, 10 calories, 3, total carbohydrates, 2 grams of sugars, which is coming from the fruits and stuff. So it’s not bad, but I bought it because it was a dollar because you know mark 350, 50 coupons. So here you go Anthony I like that you can still coupon on keto yeah, so I’ll try it.

But then I got this little cup of sunshine. Basically, because I was like I like the title says: it promotes a good mood kind of like you. You are what you drink and then we got like a crap ton of eggs yeah we got eight dozen eggs, they were buy-one-get-one-free they’re medium-sized, which I was kind of bummed about that, but hey $ 5.99 for the large size or $ 4.99 buy one get one Free for the medium-sized going medium we’re going to go medium, and just when I need three eggs.

Only four and I had like such a save in that shopping cart. I actually went to go pick up. One of these and the whole thing turned over and dumped out and there was eggs all in the basket and not one of them broke nice nan scale victory. Well, we’re going to go home and cook cuz we haven’t eaten. We were like so nervous by doing a key to connect podcast like we get a chance to eat. Yes, it was all sweaty in like ya scared, but excited so tabatha really wants Roscoe’s catnip toy, even though Roscoe actually stole it from charity.

So I am NOT going to lie. That is a pretty beautiful sight right there. These cowboy burgers are so colorful yeah. It was time to get into Rachel here. Is your lunch it’s time to relax in bed? Yes, that is a cowboy burger, 302 piece. The three pieces of asparagus from sprouts and in a mutant piece of asparagus, a couple eggs, mayonnaise and some bacon and a healthy Rachel. This thing is awesome: it’s an experiment, I’m working on it! It’s work in progress.

It’s like pizza, pollo parts, Wow, crazy, good! I know you’re in bed, it’s like 8:30 at night. I don’t know if you’re interested after we’re done eating, but I can take out the frost. Look what I found in Publix wow. You can’t have it unless we get up and do a review article of it, but you’ll get an entire double serving of it. I mean well sorry about the multi day. What was supposed to be full day of eating that turned into two days of nonsense.

We had a good time with it, though we got to go to BJ’s, we’ve been playing around Wendy, monitor, we had beau as a visitor, yes and we did eat other stuff. We’ve been working on a pizza pull apart, so good, but we just wanted to eat it like a film on it. So I promise next week we’ll get back into our standard full day of eating vlog yeppers.

Keto Meat Prep | What we eat on Keto | Shopping Vlog

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. That is the end of our article for today. Please do it’s pretty, but hit that, like button down below, don’t forget to subscribe to our blog and hit the little bell icon in that way.

So it is January 2nd number two and we are on day two of our 30 days or 31 days, actually of Quito, ciao and Quito. Brick. Only now we’re doing this actually not as a challenge. It’s actually a fast for us. We do a fast forgot. Every single January, so this year we decided no food, just quito Chow in Quito Bronx, so we need butter yeah. We made a bunch of Quito Chows to get us started, but I’m out of butter, so we’re going to head to Sam’s Club because I don’t think we’ve ever done a Sam’s Club haul, no or key doubt because in addition in eating butter, we still have to Get some food to do some meal prep for the boys, and I think the easiest thing is to buy a bunch of sleeves of burgers and cook them ahead of time.

Heck. Yes, and this way they could just kind of grab them out of the you know refrigerator whenever they want grabbing it. Speaking of the refrigerator, I actually cleaned and rearranged our refrigerator. What, in anticipation for having to have a whole bunch of keto Chows made up? Usually, it’s really scary in there, it’s really scary and loaded with a bunch of stuff. I found a lot of stuff that I just tossed like.

Why do we have condiments that are like 5 years old? Let’s take a look at their fridge. Ok, so take a look at that we have taken over the inside fridge how much less scary than usual. So all the condiments are over here and pretty much. Every condiment in our house is keto friendly, with the exception of Anthony’s, barbecue, sauce and Anthony’s. Maybe cereal and he’ll never use so, but this is Anthony’s favorite ketchup and this is absolutely cute.

Oh we’ve been getting that at sprouts, but he’s got his heavy cream. We’ve got some waters and lots of keto Chows and then down there. We have a keto chili. The kids are eating and those are our leftover wings from New Year’s Eve that we can’t eat but they’re going to enjoy now here’s what we did with the keto child, because Rachel and I are on two different sets of calories. All of them are the same.

Every one of them is made with three and a half tablespoons of butter, and then what I’m going to do is when I need to drink one, I’m just going to grab it melt down another tablespoon or two tablespoons of butter and add it in this way. We don’t have to worry about which one is Rachel’s and which one is mine. Well, the chocolate talk is Rachel’s. Well, that’s the other thing I did not label them, so it’s kind of like grab one and guess what you’re drinking hope is not like chicken.

When I’m expecting chocolate, there are some chicken ones in there. One of the things about coming over here, I forget, is that there are all of these fast-food restaurants in this complex, like there’s a taco boat here and there’s all way of Tropic all over here, and it just makes me realize like. When is the last time we went in to talk about we used to like live in Taco Bell, I remember one New Year’s Eve.

We ordered the entire menu. That’s right. I remember that actually said. Let’s just order the whole man we ate the entire menu. That was pretty bad few years glad you didn’t do that we used to like live and Taco Bell, and I can’t even think of the last time we had that kind of stuff. Well, it was cheap. We were in our minds, feeding a family of five, but it was garbage and as soon as they aged 15 minutes later they were hungry again yeah and now there are some key dough options at Taco Bell.

But to me like Mexican food means tortillas. It means enchiladas and all of that stuff is obviously no good. You got a stitch like the salads, the fajitas stuff, like that. Well, I like wrapping taco meat inside of the cheese wraps. Yes, what will you see as soon as you walk in? It’s definitely the first of the year, because it’s all meal replacement look at that protein shake slimfast, keto premiere protein in sure acting quest bar and keto hydrate.

What is this? Look at that 12-pack, zero, sugars per bottle, BHB salts away? Second, so it’s got bh bees in it; where’s the ingredients in this filtered natural spring water, citric acid, malic, acid, natural flavor, BHB salts Wow, at least $ 20.00. It’s three total carbs per bottle. It’s a really cool thing: good cook! It’s a 120 piece meal. Prep set $ 25 $ 25. Look at all that stuff. You get you get these different bowls, divided ones, three divided two divided single ones and then the round plates.

That is a great deal if you’re getting stove on keto and you want to start like meal prepping and making sure everything is ahead. 60. You know 60 containers, 60 lids reusable up to 10 times. Maybe this they’re, even selling toilets in Sam’s Club, now look wait till it’s something we don’t have to buy anymore. You don’t know more fabric, softener balls, lots of balls, so this is meal prep container I like, because my kids cannot always be trusted to bring it home, so I don’t want to buy expensive meal prep where and then never see it again.

So this is some disposable ones. Just nine dollars for 25 pack cannot stand plastic silver, with the exception of a really heavy-duty spoon like that. Those I like Chipotle, has the best disposable spoon on earth. So this is something that’s needs by the kids really like spaghetti. Noodles but we don’t buy spaghetti noodles, traditional spaghetti, noodles anymore and keep them in the house, but these are just nice grabbing the zucchini and yellow squash spiral.

The ingredients are only zucchini and yellow squash total carbs 3 grams dietary fiber 1 gram. Let’s get some of those because, even though we’re not eating we’re still not buying or preparing non keto food, look what we found it structurally! Oh and it’s on sale, look at chef, Jimmy gourmet butter, pick 3 and save you get three of them for $ 20. One of these things are not like the other ones. Obviously we’re not going to be eating honey butter, another one, this strawberry, honey butter, love that one we can have that one look at this one.

This one is actually really really good. Okay, so we’re going to give them some burgers we’re going to get a bag of these sirloin beef patties. These are 85 1516 dollars, so it’s less than a dollar a burger and then Chris from Kyoto Chow said these things are really good, especially when you put them on the smoker. So you get 15 burgers with the cheddar and bacon and it’s 16 bucks. So we’re going to get these chicken vests it’s $ 19 for 10 pounds of the Tyson chicken bus, but since they’re on sale we’re going to get these they’re like antibiotic free chicken breasts they’re $ 3.

50 off. So it’s twelve point: eight for five pounds a little bit more money, but they’re, no antibiotics ever and they’re individually wraps that’ll be really good for them Rachel’s. In luck, they have Scott toilet paper. Here you go. You can wipe your butt again. Here’s what we came for butter, it’s a little bit more money than BJ’s or Costco. Actually, it’s like a dollar more, but we’re here. So we’re going to get we’re going to need a lot.

So let’s get the wheat packages, that’s a lot of butter! So here’s where you want to be a little bit leery of convenience products, so these are chicken fajitas. It’s like it’s just the meat. But if you take a look at the ingredient, there’s boneless skinless chicken, breast with rib meat, water, but then there’s also potato starch. Yeah and dextrose, so it’s just chicken fajitas, but it’s three carbs per serving and there’s 11 servings in this bag.

So he says: there’s only three ounces who’s only eating three ounces of chicken. I just recently bought these in all these and it is a lot cheaper, but these parce some awesome pickles. If you want something on the go, so here’s some convenience chicken I can get behind. It is a little pricey at $ 10, but they’re already cooked six. Fully cooked chicken breasts and look at the ingredients, just boneless skinless chicken breasts water, and then it contains 2 % or less of the following vinegar, salt and natural flavors.

So Wow take a look at this. This is four pounds of bacon $ 19, which actually is a really good price. However, we paid $ 25 to make nine pounds of bacon, and ours doesn’t have sugar in it. Look Rachel, it’s a single serving for blue cheese for us. Sam’s Club has stepped up their game with the lunch meat. Take a look at all of this. I think we’re actually going to get some of this turkey breast and we’re going to make a keto lasagna.

That’s actually a really good price for like non grass-fed grass-finished, but two dollars and 30 cents a pound and it’s 80 percent. Usually you see that kind of price, and it’s for the 75 25. Oh here we go Rachel. Take a look at this. Do you know that is not something I went. Oh, it’s a beef toss. It’s a tongue, they have beef tongue, they have tripe, they have ox tails. This is awesome. I would just like to say thank you, God with her fast Rachel.

While they have Waterloo and that’s actually a really good price – seven dollars in eighty eight cents for twenty four cans. So that’s like what three fifty a 12-pack a little bit more than that, but you have to drink strawberry yeah! I’m not a big fan of strawberry sparkling water, but they also have this. This is a new one. Maybe we should try this one twelve. Ninety eight for a 15 pack for 16 ounces a little bit expensive, but they have watermelon blackberry and pineapple its water infused with fruit essence and the ingredients are purified water and natural flavors and there’s nothing in it.

So the only thing is: that’s not sparkling water. It’s regular water. They also have lots of other sparkling waters. They got Stan Pellegrino. They got bubbly another one, though look at this you’re going to have to deal with the raspberry which not a big fan of the raspberry 788. They have Lacroix. So they’ve got a good collection here. Bing look at this. None of the other wholesale clubs have this.

They have bang and it’s actually two out of my three or four flavors and two of them are my favorite. I love sour heads. I love the blue Roz. The cherry limeade is really good too: the Purple Haze, I’ve, never I’ve actually tried and that’s a great price 3398 for 24 cans. It’s a dollar forty to a can churros heard of a heart healthy breakfast! So take a look at this, so you have this version, which is the members mark, and this is you know, obviously the sam’s club brand of peanut butter, eight total carbohydrates, two grams of dietary fiber, and I believe that this one has sugar in it.

Doesn’t yeah? Look at that roasted peanuts, sugar, palm oil and sea salt, but then you’ve got Smuckers natural, peanut butter, 190, calories, seven, total carbohydrates, three grams of dietary fiber, two grams of sugars, which is just coming from the peanuts. But the ingredients are just peanuts and salt. What are you looking at? What we used to feed our children all the time, Chef Boyardee, look at these look at the little ingredients.

I have totally given this to my children. Modified corn starch soybean oil, dehydrated onion, caramel, color, high-fructose corn syrup Wow. That list is ridiculous: 33 carbohydrates in one cup and our kids used to eat like five cups in a sentence maybe spam, they got some spam over there, I loved it in the ingredients. It says mechanically separated chicken, it’s almost like they want to emphasize like this hurts it hurts it chicken to make this well.

This is pretty good look at this. They have Buffalo Wild Wings, they have the sauces, they have the parmesan, garlic and the honey barbecue. Unfortunately, we can’t eat the honey barbecue because it is 17 total carbohydrates in a serving, but you can have the parmesan garlic on keto. It’s only three total carbs in a two tablespoon serving look. How much because blueprint is so much better. They can’t keep it in stock once you upgrade, though we used to actually buy this stuff and eat big giant cans of this nacho cheese sauce right now, this is nacho cheese.

I can’t even believe it take a look at the list of ingredients. This is obviously before we ever looked in ingredients. Look at that list of ingredients for cheese wow. This is so disappointing. I saw this. I was like avocado ranch. Yes right, right, look! Look water, soybean oil. Obviously this is not a hava kado ranch dressing. I don’t even need to look at the recipe ingredients, I’m not buying it when the second ingredient is soybean oil.

This is something we like to have in the house just for, like emergencies, when you’re making a quick recipe that needs some crumbled up, bacon bacon emergency, but we don’t buy it a lot because it is expensive at $ 10 for this 20 ounce bag – and it’s Simple to make your own, but it’s not a bad thing to just keep in your house for, like that occasional point where you need something quick. While this is awesome, sam’s club is carrying organic spices.

They have organic garlic, organic ginger, organic onion, ground pepper. They have cumin cinnamon. This is really really good. So this is a really good price on avocado oil. It’s this blue D re, and this is cold-pressed at its $ 7.99 for a liter, that’s actually a really good price. So unfortunately they have a big beef. Jerky selection, but the only one, that’s any good. Is this Dukes? The good news is there’s three bags inside of here for just 870 once it’s on clearance.

That is really good. I’m seeing something else over here, though, I think we need to get these to make our own look at that pickled egg frightening. I still want to try to make them how’s the pickled sausage. What’s the ingredients in pickled sausage, mechanically separated chicken, pork, pork parts, water, soy, protein, concentrate salt, flavorings, sodium phosphate, sodium are with rob a paprika and sodium nitrate.

There’s only one carb, but I’m seriously afraid this used to be one of my James. I never lies there. Rachel there’s something that you won’t eat. Even if you weren’t Kido, I worked in a day care center and we ate so many goldfish crackers. I can’t eat them anymore, even the smell of them. That’s really good! 16:48 for his book. That’s really awesome over a hundred healthy and delicious ketogenic recipes.

Oh my gosh! We should get this for kids church. That would be awesome. Let’s get that tossed the kitchen in there and teach him right meat and Jesus. That’s what’s good for ya! So we just finished up in Sam’s Club spent a hundred and sixty dollars, but we are back in business when it comes to butter. We got lots of butter, but it’s good. We got a bunch of burgers for the boys, we got the chicken to make it super easy, so nobody has to do a whole bunch of cooking toilet paper.

We got toilet paper, so we can wipe our butts again but as we were checking out, I never noticed this before. I don’t know if you can see this, but I saw my picture on my Sam’s Club card. I will put a copy of it up. There. Take a look at that. Oh, my goodness, look how fat I was when I got this membership card. It’s like Santa wow. I was fast, so we got home from Sam’s Club yesterday, after a very respectable hall, I think yeah.

I think we have a good Hall they’re, starting this stuff up their game a little bit when it comes to the keto game. We haven’t visited sam’s club and quite some time, and I think that in 2020 we may be frequenting there, a little bit more. At least yeah, they definitely are not as good as Costco, but it’s starting to come up a little bit, especially considering Rachel found out that they sell free punch, only zip vests okay.

So that made me super happy and they’re right next to a whole thing: yeah, because we only go to that area when I have to get a whole food. So, at least maybe if we go to Whole Foods, will kind of just go right next door and run into Sam’s Club there’s also a mall there. Yes, so we got home from Sam’s Club and then we decided the last minute Rachel had some shipping today shipping and we decided hey.

Let’s do a live stream which I’m so glad we did, because I missed everybody yeah. That was a lot of fun, but in the midst of all that we forgot to wrap up this vlog, so you know Friday we’re actually getting ready to go to a wedding, I’m not wearing this wearing a dress for some friends of ours. So we’re going to head to the wedding, but we wanted to wrap up this vlog you’re, not wearing that. No, I’m not wearing this, although this is a cool shirt that I got from readiness, let the hunger games begin and it’s basically a shirt for fasting for a 72 hours, fast Wow I’ll be doing a 72 hours fast.

They are doing one this month and I may do that in the midst of ya know our keto chow only challenged. I like it so for dinner. Yesterday, like when we got home, I ended up having a raspberry cheesecake, keto Chou um, and I had 50 % of a cinnamon crunch, ki Tobruk. That was what I ate yesterday. Well, I had chocolate mint delicious. I love that. I don’t have to wait from a shamrock shake until March.

You can have it right now. We need to make some work. You know jobs, though, because when you’re doing 3 a day you go through them very quickly, so I’m having like 15 of them made up is not lasting, very long yeah because we’re not going through three day we’re going through six right by day. I didn’t want to say got these. This was actually when I had so we showed it on our live stream, but if you didn’t see our live stream, these are red and salt bricks, and these are really really helping me not eat.

So whenever I feel like eating or just get the urge to have something in my mouth, you just kind of lick on it, I can tell you what they’re addictive they are really really addictive. Now I have one in a little baggie in my purse and I love it that thing’s going with me everywhere and when you first put it in your mouth, it’s a little sweet and then you hit the saltiness. But it kind of weird like as soon as it hits your tongue, it’s like sweetness and then some saltiness.

Well, when you don’t have contaminated, you know: ancient sea, salt right, it’s delicious yeah, you know, and just they last a long time. So just you know this little brick that I’ve got here. I’ve been working on this one for over two weeks, Wow, so they last a long time, but redmond finally has released him so that you guys can get them as well, and this is what it comes. Like it’s a big bag, I don’t even know how much this bag weighs, but it’s pretty heavy.

Oh it’s right! On the front. It’s 26 ounces of salt. You can take a little hammer like I did, and just chip off one you don’t have to like carry around this giant thing like I like having this thing, because I don’t know just fits in your hand well, but they’re, all different sizes, like here’s one in This bag – this is a bag. Here’s one here have mine concealed in my purse. There’s a big giant one like this, so it literally just big pieces.

Look at this one, just big pieces of salt. I actually think they’re beautiful if you’re somebody that enjoys looking at like quartz yeah, it’s gorgeous right and it’s kind of cool. When you look at this one and look at the one that I’m not licking on. So you look at all the minerals and stuff, and that’s not amazing – and we learned something recently from Chris from Peter Chao – is that if you’re using pink salt, if you want to know if it’s real pink salt that you’re really using a good mineral salt, put It in water and if, when it dissolves, if there’s no stuff in the bottom, like pieces of sand and grit and that kind of stuff – and it was a faker and it’s a fake, so it’s a real mineral salt.

Are you telling me that my TJ Maxx and Dress for Less pink Himalayan salt, maybe like lying to me, possibly it’s possible, I’m not going to say that for sure, but it’s possible we’re doing a scientific study. So, there’s a link for this, I’m going to put it down in the description. I’m also going to put a link on our website and it’s right now. It’s $ 14.99, a bag which I think is it’s going to last you forever again.

It’s 26 ounces. A lot of salt, it’s super fun, though it’s fun to just work on, especially if you’re into fasting. If you just want to have something to kind of get rid of some of those cravings and stuff just suck on that. Well, I have a bad habit of either putting my fingernails in my mouth or I chew a ridiculous amount of gum, and so I’m trying to not have them work on your gums and I think that will definitely occupy my mouth yeah.

So 14.99, a bag. You can use the code to crazy Keita’s, that’s going to get you another 15 % off and you’re going to have to follow the link down below because so far as I know, it’s not available in any stores and there’s also no Maine direct link on their Website like, if you go to the website, at least as of a couple of days ago, there was no link. It’s a little bit of mission. Important Oh wear it.

You have to have the link directly to that page. He got you so it’s down below in the description. You got them again, it’s 49, but it’s going to last you a long time. I mean it’s just if you’re looking for like something for fasting or something like maybe trying to get rid of the gum habit or somebody mention our live stream last night, a cigarette habit if you’re yeah, having that hand to mouth action just trying to cut it, Put this on their mouth instead, and that should help a little bit and at least you’re getting some good sodium yeah.

So that is our vlog. For the day, our trip to Sam’s Club was fun. Let us know down in the comments section some of the other stores and that you would like us to go to absolutely we’ve been talking about like in the new year. What are some different things where we want to take the blog 4 to crazy kiddos? So let us know, eat some of the different stores that you’d like us to go to some of the different types of content that you’d like us to see.

30 Day Keto Diet Results – NOT What I Expected

My name is Scott, and today we’re going to talk about the ketogenic diet challenge. I went through four mental health reasons. That’s what those 30 days of vlogs were all about. What I was trying to do is experiment and see. Does food have an impact on my mood now? The answer is obviously it does. Obviously it does, but I was looking for ways that the ketogenic diet would increase.

My energy overall mood how I felt in the mornings and what it did was actually something that I didn’t expect. I’m going to talk about three things that the ketogenic diet basically cured in 30 days. It’s pretty remarkable and then I’m going to talk about what foods. I’m introducing now that I’ve already introduced and what the effect has been so far, because if you follow me on Twitter and an Instagram and stuff, you know I’ve been talking about man.

I just want that coffee. I just want a nice old-fashioned, plain donut: how about a maple dip, how about a vanilla dip? How about an apple fritter? I was craving some of that stuff and well I’m going to tell you what I’ve introduced and what the effect is. But first the three things: oh and also blood, test results too. You can check this article out. I was in the hospital cuz. I fell off my bike and what they do is they take your blood when you’re in the hospital see if everything’s a-okay and it just so happens.

I wanted to do that anyways for the ketogenic diet. So I’m like hey nurse, May please have those test results. Can I have a copy of that now? This doesn’t include like B vitamins and things like that. You need separate tests like for an actual physical to get those, but there’s pretty cool things in this blood test that I think you’ll find very interesting, because the ketogenic diet, man that’s a way different way to eat.

Then I was used to like I was pretty high carbon when you’re doing 70 % fat 20 % protein 10 % carb, I was barely doing 10 % carb there. It was very, very different and the blood tests actually surprised me. So you ready sit back. Relax. Take your pants off if you haven’t subscribed please subscribe. This is a mental health Channel depression to expression where we express ourselves, we freely with confidence all right.

Let’s do this, the first thing the ketogenic diet cured at around day. I think it was around day 15. After the keto flu after I felt terrible, the big cure was my allergies, seasonal allergies. Now I can’t remember a time where I didn’t have seasonal allergies, where my eyes weren’t itchy, where my nose wasn’t running or plugged where my ears and and the roof of my mouth, weren’t itchy, it hasn’t happened and that’s a result that I didn’t know.

I didn’t expect that to happen, and let me tell you going through a summer and not having to sneeze not having to take allergy. Medication was awesome, like I go to bed and I can actually breathe through my nose for all of you who suffer from seasonal allergies. It’s like going to bed and you have to breathe through your mouth and you wake up with the dry mouth the Pastis. This was a treat. This was a real treat and again from an early early age.

I’ve been taking arias, Claridon doesn’t work, for me. Arias is the one allergy medication that I take. That just does wonders I’m spitting everywhere and I was just so surprised by that result, so surprised and so happy. So that’s number one: seasonal allergies gone with the ketogenic diet. Gone number two. This isn’t really a cure, and this was pretty much an obvious thing, because my my calorie intake, I don’t think, was as high when I when you go off carbs as you can see by the vlogs.

If you I’m going to, you know, put a link up here where you can see every single vlog I did for the 30 days, and you can see how I’m pissed off at the beginning, going through keto flu there’s times of depression times of more anxiety times Where I’m just like this diets stupid and then other times where, after the keto flu I get used to things, get used to the habit, you know eating differently, getting used to cooking differently, buying the right vegetables buying meats, finding them on sale.

You get used to the whole thing after just a few weeks, but the one thing was: my calories were definitely lower. At the beginning I had to eat non-stop. I and I was telling Michaela who introduced me to this diet and told me to try it. She was like yeah you’re, going to like be hungry a lot of the time at the beginning, your body’s just not used to it. My body was craving carbs and I’m just like use the fat for energy.

You idiot my body wasn’t listening for a while. So what it did is uh for all you, ladies or gay men, I’m going to show you my stomach now, it’s nothing serious okay, but I had a beer belly before the ketogenic diet, not a beer belly, but I had a kangaroo pouch. I was growing a Joey in there and from the reduced calories, but also you talk to anyone. You reduce carbs, your stomach gets flat man, it gets flat.

So that was what I saw even around week. One flatter stomach and no bloating after eating huge improvement, huge improvement, so I just want to show you like: that’s pretty cool right and I’ll do a little flex like guys, I haven’t done a sit-up in a month a because that accident bruised my ribs right. I don’t know if you can see that that’s my hip, but that was all bruised. My ribs are still bruised here, so I’ve been able to work out, but look at that man that’s crazy.

Now, if I push out that’s the push out, that’s the push out, but you’re never actually going cool like when you’re walking around right. So that’s pretty cool. What do you think I do a little twist. You know it’s all lighting at the end of the day and I’ll have to make this a thumbnail. So I get a click or two but um guys like in all seriousness, not to flaunt or beep, be cocky about how my body looks.

You know, I don’t do that type of thing, but I wanted to show you and you asked for it again. I should have done it before thinking. If I have any pictures of a before, I probably do, but I did lose 10 pounds on the keto diet and the 10 pounds were on. It was honestly in that stomach area. That’s where you know, women get it in the hips and men get it right. In the bellies right in the lower abdomen, so that was pretty cool.

What do you think? That’s pretty cool, so we’re at no allergies. That’s number one awesome number two belly fat, gonzo, number, three headaches headaches! Now: here’s the tough thing! Here’s! The tough thing! I got a pillow about a week and a half into the ketogenic diet, a new pillow, a Casper pillow, but I was sleeping at my parents place. I was sleeping at friends places, so I had different pillows throughout the month and I was still getting no headaches in the morning in the afternoon night.

Never never, and let me tell you I would get headaches often in the morning. Ketogenic diet, no headaches! No headaches. Can you believe that now I want with these three three cures? I’m not I’m not advertising. Any diet like I’m. Never one to be like carbs are bad like to eliminate this or go vegan or go carnivore. Do this and that I’m just sharing my own experiences here and with these three improvements, that’s pretty awesome, that is pretty cool just after 30 days of eating differently.

I don’t know what the long-term effects of keto are well I’ll talk to I’ll talk to you about the foods I’m reintroducing, but that’s so cool that is so cool. Cuz, usually I’ll, have a headache in the morning. Just it feels like inflammation. That’s what it feels like and with the weather to certain certain weather, cloudy weather, I don’t know different pressures in the air. I get headaches for 30 days, not a headache, even during the kedo flu, not a headache.

So that’s cool. Those are the three things. So we have allergies, no bloating and a flatter stomach and no headaches, that’s really cool. So next I’m going to go through introducing my foods and last I’ll show you my blood results. So again, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, all the links are below all the great links to all these cool playlists and what we do here on depression to expression.

It’s all available in the description, but I was craving doughnuts. Carb withdrawal is a real thing and you know people get hangry and maybe people before their morning, coffee, they’re, less they’re, impatient and they’re not fun to be around that’s carb withdrawal. Man like I was feigning for a little bit. I was pissed off. I was really mad about having to eat so much at the beginning, but let me tell you the one thing I wanted more than anything was a doughnut.

I wanted a doughnut and I haven’t had one yet, but what I have introduced slowly but surely, is Mikey Mikey genic diet was different than most because most people stick on the dairy, coz dairies great for fat, a bunch of cheaters, but I didn’t do dairy. I didn’t I had no fruit, not a single fruit. This was meat and veggies. That’s it that’s it oils, of course, oils ruj and water. No coffee either no bullet coffees, no butter in my cup, my coffee.

None of that, because that’s a big thing with keto as well doing the bullet coffees nothing. So what I wanted to introduce first was fruit. I first had a plum waited a day had a banana and a peach waited two more days, no reaction, so good news. Those three fruits like I miss bananas. I would have a banana every single day, at least two bananas and no reaction whatsoever. Fruit, a ok, second beer.

I had a beer and no reaction whatsoever. I waited a few days right. The taste was delicious. I’m trying to think of what beer I actually had no jeez. It was at the wedding, it was a Sleeman, it was a sleeve and yes, I could have chosen a cool, Ontario craft brew or something from Toronto. It was a Sleeman, but it was delicious. It was delicious and it was out of wedding. So maybe I sweat I danced.

I had lots of food. I didn’t eat carbs there during the meal, but the beer success so we’re at fruit beer, a ok haven’t, had a bagel or any bread or anything whatsoever. But the other thing I did have was oh wait. Let me just think, oh right, sorry, the bread that was just a lie. I had a burger with the bun burger with the bun and phone. Please and no reactions whatsoever didn’t feel groggy didn’t feel any adverse effects.

I know what you’re thinking like yeah – maybe I would have, if I did this – maybe for a two-month period or three months like do 90 days and then go back to the original diet um. But I was definitely in ketosis man like oh, it was the best feeling when I woke up one morning and wasn’t starving that happened at around day 26 27. I woke up, and I wasn’t starving like I would get up in the morning and I’d be in pain because I’d be so hungry and after, like you know three weeks, I wasn’t starving.

That was a great feeling, but so I was definitely in ketosis, but the bread didn’t do anything and the last thing that I reintroduce was sauces. So I did catch up and this barbecue sauce that was fairly low sugar. But I I dipped chicken and a burger in there, and that was it now I the way I did the burger was no sauce on the burger, so I could see how the bun is just alone and then reintroduce sauces on their own.

I was very careful about this no reactions whatsoever, but remember this is mental health. I did the ketogenic diet for mental health reasons not to not to lose weight, not to see what my workouts would be like, and energy levels that way pumping iron. Although I, my energy, wasn’t great the whole time, but this was for mental health and as far as anxiety or anything like that or depression, no real benefit with the ketogenic diet, no big benefit, because I was feeling good from the beginning.

Now, as I told you all before, the real test would be going off antidepressants and maintaining the ketogenic diet and that’s something I’m still debating and I’d appreciate your balanced opinion there and don’t go after me about that. But it’s a big decision because I’ve gone off antidepressants before and I’ve almost died and I know the withdrawal effects it’s like well. If you’ve gone through that yeah, I don’t need to describe it.

So last but not least, this is very uncut. Let’s go through the blood results now, as I said before, the nurse was nice enough to give me a copy, I’m trying to figure out how to best share this with you guys they measured sodium potassium chloride, total co2 glucose levels and creatinine. I believe: that’s how you say it: creatine, creatine, NIEM, so sodium perfect and my meals. I added salt on everything since with carbs and breads you’re, getting a lot of salt.

That way, you do need to salt your food with the keto. That’s one thing I learned potassium on the high end, but right on chloride, perfect glucose was on the low end, so they give you a range of four moles per liter 27.8, and I was at four point six. So the nurse did say that was on the lower end, glucose and well, obviously, I’m not getting the carbs so that I think that makes sense or maybe I wasn’t full keto.

I don’t know those experienced or maybe a doctor is reading. Please, let me know creatine, which is creatine. You get all that from meat right. That was at 84 out of 112. So that’s a perfect range. I just want to talk about the things that were high for me. It with this blood test, so red blood cell count, was on the height like it was too high. So they give you a range of four point, three to five point: six e 12 per litre.

Don’t know what that means anyways. It was five point: six for red blood cell count was high, as well as which is cool MP v MP V stands for the platelet volume, the your blood platelets and how large they are – and I was these were big, and if something is again, I was Talking to the nurse MPV, I can tell you exactly what that means mean: platelet volume, average platelet volume calculated measurement of the average size of platelets found in the blood and is typically included in the tests as part of the CBC.

So what this means, if it’s high it says, normally occurs when your body constantly creates new platelets because of a continual loss of existing platelets. This can be caused by things like recent surgery, infection inflammation or from heavy blood loss. So I didn’t lose any blood, but I’m thinking maybe inflammation could have had something to do with this, although with the lack of seasonal allergies, like allergies, it’s a it’s an immune response right, so I’m thinking the inflammation my immune system went down, but who knows, I Know I’m kind of talking out of my ass here because I’m not a doctor and I have absolutely no medical training when it comes to comes to blood tests.

But if you know more about this stuff, please comment below. This is a this is a dialogue. So please help me out a little bit if you find this interesting and the other thing that was high was monocytes ABS monocytes, when they’re high, a heightened percentage in your blood, can be caused by chronic inflammatory disease such as inflammatory bowel disease. So another thing with inflammation: isn’t that interesting, two of the things in my blood that could be caused that are high, that could be caused by inflammation.

That is very interesting, isn’t it so those are the blood results. Blood tests, white blood cell count was perfect again. I talked about the glucose being perfect. I said red blood cell count was perfect and that’s about it, so that was the ketogenic diet. There’s the three cures: that’s the reintroduction of food. So far so good again, I’m not going back to heavy carb anymore. I told you I’d update you on that, I’m not, it doesn’t make sense and I’m definitely not eating dairy again.

I don’t miss it. Do not miss dairy, I don’t miss cheese. I don’t miss milk, I don’t miss yogurt, don’t miss butter. None of that. So excuse me, dairy, is something that I’m fine with missing out on. That’s a big inflammatory thing I guarantee. If I reintroduce dairy allergies would come back. I could probably experiment with that for sure, but I just have to go. Buy dairy. I don’t really want to buy stuff and then the blood cell or sorry the blood tests all seems good right, except for the the high the high parts, but the nurse said.

That’s like honestly, nothing to worry about we’ll see if I’m dead within a week. Please call for help now. That’s so that’s the 30-day challenge. Everyone Kido I’d, highly recommend it if you suffer from seasonal allergies. If, if you want to try something different for anxiety for depression right for for any kind of physical illness that you have um, I’m all about just trying everything attacking something that you suffer with from every different possible angle and see what works and diet for the Most part is something that people don’t really think about and that we don’t experiment with which is actually pretty nuts.

Let me tell you it wasn’t fun for the first two weeks, but it’s two weeks out of your life man. It was definitely worth it as an experiment and I’m going to change the way I eat for the rest of my life a burger here, and there is great, but as far as heavy passes and dairy sauces and cheeses and candy, it’s just not worth it anymore. It doesn’t do anything for me so like I would keep this diet altered version where you know I can have.

I can still have fruit, which is fantastic, but I do it just from the seasonal allergies point of view and the headaches pretty awesome and I’m pretty excited. So I hope this gave you some motivation to to try this yourself. I know a lot of people who are following the vlogs everyday, we’re doing their own challenges. Please comment. Let me know how your 30-day challenge went. I know a lot of you were getting rid of refined sugar.

Some of you stopped drinking coffee. Other people were doing meditation for a month every day. Let me know that went and I hope you enjoyed the new backdrop for all the articles. I love reading musics, a form of expression and I love nature. This is like my mental health toolbox right here, so I hope you like the brighter background, because brighter days are ahead for all of us, stay strong, keep being you and don’t forget to express yourself.

Pumpkin Seeds are a great addition to your Keto snack list!

MEGA $850+ COSTCO GROCERY HAUL 65+ KETO ITEMS WE LOVE AND USE!

We were there all the time anyway. So this list will include over 60 items over $ 800 with the product of the things that we pick up at Costco, and I think it might find that it helps you if you’re not familiar with some of these products or if you don’t go to Costco.

Very often, or if you’re, not even a member, a lot of these things, you can get on Amazon, believe it or not, so you know me I’ll be linking some stuff in the description below anyway yeah. So, stick around see what all the things that we buy are and they’re, certainly even more than that at the store it’s just. This is a list of the things that we use, and this was what three trips right: three trips, three different trips and we’re combining it all into one.

Let’s take someone to talk a little bit about the store itself. We’ve been extremely busy it’s hard to film. In our warehouse one because I work there and everybody wants to chat with me, a lot of the members know who I am so it makes it very disruptive. So we’ve chosen not to actually film while were there, but we did take pictures of the products and price cards when we could, I think, we’re missing one.

Oh yeah yeah. I was putting it together before we did this article to talk about each of these items. So we’ll jump right into it copy draw, let’s start with my favorite cheese, cheese in more cheese and more cheese, that’s Stacey’s department, absolutely I’ve, always loved cheese. Since I was a little kid, we started off with our mozzarella cheese. This is a must-have in our household. At any given time it’s the basis of our Fathead pizzas, you know one of our favorites that we like to do and we did a how-to article.

That’s done very well for us, it is tapas. I usually mix up an egg with a little bit of nacho cheese for a trifle real, quick, absolutely the other staple that we like is the queso chihuahua cheese, chihuahua cheese, it’s about Wawa, cheese, yeah, Greg and Stacey. Kgp dough turned this on to that cheese and it’s definitely been a winner for Stacey. She loves that cheese and then we do taco bowls with it.

Yes are those taco bowls. We use that Kiesel yeah yeah, it’s good cheese, good, good, spicy, cheese. The Mexican cheese is another one. We love to do our tackle shows with the chocolate bowls with the flat breads with yeah. I’ve even seen, Stacey use a mission, carp shell, to make a quesadilla out of that and put it a little bit of jalapeno. Yes, yes, the next one is cheddar cheese, sugar. I can handle cheddar, you can handle again Bill likes to put cheddar on top of his chili yep.

I also put it on my broccoli and I love to make broccoli cheddar soup, with their cheddar cheese. Nope can’t go wrong with that. Can’t go wrong with each other, one of the other, quick and simple snack ideas that I always use as well as our daughters, love are. The mozzarella sticks now, don’t why are they great for snacking they’re great for homemade mozzarella sticks yeah, yeah radio. For that too Parmesan cheese, shakey cheese.

I call it. He always calls it’s tricky because you shake it. Okay, I mix this in with a couple of different recipes that I use even with the flat breads. It just gives a different texture to it, meatballs to the meatballs, and I love it with the parmesan crusted, pork, chops, cheese and texture of crust. That’s what she likes crunch is where it’s at crunches, where it’s at Thursday’s. So now it’s time to talk about the meats.

The one nice thing with Stacey working at Costco is she can get the prime picks of the rib eyes. I know everybody yeah, so we’ve gotten a couple batches of the rib eyes that have just been oh, my gosh perfection. They taste amazing. I even just did a article on how I make my rib eye steak. It’s wonderful! It’s a great treat now and then yeah. Absolutely he always asked after I buy them. He says how’d, it feel like a steak.

Yes – and I love me, the other thing I get from Costco is the chicken thighs they have the boneless chicken thighs and there’s no skin on them. I do grab some from the store that have skin on them as well with the boning, but the ones from Costco are just really nice package. You get a couple in in each package, so I don’t feel like I’m eat wasteful. I can pull out what I need and those chicken thighs are fantastic.

Another thing we get from there is regular ground beef. Now, instead of just getting a regular package of ground beef, we get the tube of ground beef, which is ten pounds. I believe yes just knock on the window, and anybody in the meat department can help you out with the tuba ground beef. It saves you money. Yeah, you get a better price per pound. We had to do the two tube they get into being 30.

40. 50 cents less per pound to do that to so, the tube is definitely worth looking into. If you’re, making a large amount, we tend to cook up that whole tube and put it into snap where and then we put it in the freezer when we pull it. When we want tacos – and we pull it when we want to make something, we also pick up the organic beef from Costco. That’s what I use when I’m going to make our meatballs hamburger patties.

They just definitely are just a really good tasting meat. I love a homemade hamburger for a quick meal bill tends to do for him and Julia the. I think it’s 1/3 pound beef, patty yeah that are possible from casco just fast and easy yeah. I like the home, cooked ones. Another thing that goes along with the meat very well is the rails, marinara sauce. We use that for our meatballs. We use it for all kinds of things.

Actually, I’ve even just made ground beef and put some rails and some shaky Parmesan cheese on it and just eat it like that, because that’s just how I roll sometimes it’s true, but the rails is great for a treat now and then, and we did pick up Recently here the beef pot roast it’s got a gravy in it and it’s got the beef in it. Oh my gosh, that’s a really nice little treat now and then to pick up.

This doesn’t really like that, but I love it. Next would be the roasted garlic sausage, it’s kind of like a Polish, a little bit like a hot dog. Oh my gosh, they’re, so good. I use them on the COS ass, a little spinning thing that cooks them up and gives them a nice crust. Love that thing another thing I always grab when I go in as a treat now man, maybe once a month I’ll, grab a rotisserie chicken, it’s already pre-made, I just strip it out.

I like to eat the thighs Stacy likes the chicken breast part, so she’ll tear that up and put it on a salad or something I just like the taste of it. I know that some people have issues with that, so I don’t do it very often, but I do like it chicken strips oh, my gosh. These are great. We use them without fredo sauce. We mix it in with a little bit of like ground, pepper and some garlic and some onion powder, because Stacy doesn’t like expiry things and it makes for a wonderful meal Stacy likes.

This is already precooked too, so you could throw it on top of the salad fast and easy just measure out a couple ounces, throw it on top that alfredo chicken is fantastic. Absolutely. I also like to do a couple ounces, usually about two ounces of the chicken strips and I’ll. Just do like a ranch dressing or Caesar dressing as a dipping sauce and I’m good to go, gives you a meal because you got a protein yeah and of course, you can’t go to Costco without buying bacon right bacon.

I buy the four packs of bacon a times. That’s the magic word of the article bacon yeah, you know we buy the four packs of bacon from Costco and Nightrain ration knows out to about once a week. The other thing for a bacon I use is the crumbles. The little crumbles I use those mainly in salads if we ever do make like a little quesadilla with that Mexican cheese or queso cheese, I’ll, throw some bacon bits in with that, of course, on the fat head pizzas, he has bacon and I do have it on The fat head – pizzas, yeah, that’s a staple got bacon, got ta, have the bacon absolutely oh and then add words to build omelets yeah.

I forgot about that yeah I put some bacon crumble, sometimes in an omelet, real, quick. This me it turns out. You know what happens is I start an omelet and it ends up being scrambled eggs. So you know he always eggs yeah. So that’s how that works, and last time I meet list would be tail off fruit. I love this stuff. I throw some of the pan with some vegetables a little bit of olive oil, so some of that gee use teriyaki sauce mix that all up cook it up.

Oh my gosh, it’s amazing! Next to a steak or a piece of chicken, it’s just fantastic! You! You owe it to yourself to try. These almonds happens to be one of my absolute favorites. I love them by themselves, but I actually really like to pair the almonds with extra sharp cheddar cheese, see that just doesn’t sound like a good combo, and I like both of those things. I just don’t think I want them together.

You know, and the funny thing is I would have never eaten them together, but I think my taste buds have changed slightly. Walnuts is another thing that we always have here at the house. I do a lot of baking with the walnuts our Kido mug cake has walnuts. Peekytoe moose has walnuts. You can’t go wrong with two ounces of walnuts in your hand, yeah. We always have 200 snack bags of walnuts and almonds in the and sometimes of academia TIFF.

We have them yeah and in the refrigerator, so there’s like a grab and go back for any of us that need to grab something to go. Yes, keeps you keeps you honest now the macadamia nuts. I have to be careful with those because our youngest daughter – yes, she tried it for the first time at Gregg and Stacy’s with Kazu Kido, I had to keep taking the bag away from her about Mike stop yeah she’s just sitting there eating them like it’s popcorn, Yeah and they’re like leave her alone, let her eat them.

I’m like no okay, it’s back to me now and these little beef sticks I find are fantastic for on-the-go. I actually grabbed the big pack. I think there’s 28 in the pack and – and I throw a couple of my car for a couple because you don’t have to refrigerate them even and and I always grab a big handful of them. And I give my daughter at college because I wanted to have something in their backpack between classes or one, not if she’s in a rush and then just they taste, wonderful and they’re, just so convenient in their own little packages.

Also, we found a new product at Costco called the keto snack mix. This is something great to sit down with a small bowl if you’re going to read like TV or something and you kind of Miss having that little snack, this will fit the bill perfectly. Also, these little cheese wisps are pretty darn good in a little Bowl. If you want a little snack, too kind of an indulgent thing, just sit down with little balls.

Those just measure him out follow the basics. Yeah next are the folio wraps. Everybody was talking about these before Costco had them, and the buzz was just crazy online about it. When we finally got him, I said: oh, we got to get them, who got trying well I’ll, tell you what the texture of them they’re very slick and smooth is not for me. I tried to do a tack on them. I tried to do some lunch meat in them.

They’re. Just not my thing: they don’t taste horrible they’re, just it’s a texture thing and I normally wouldn’t say I’m a texture person, but Stacy ate them now onto the baking stuff. For me, at any given time, we always have at least a couple dozen eggs in the house a couple dozen. What are you talking about six to eight dozen in almost any time, so maybe a few dozen more than a couple yeah we buy the organics and that’s what I use when I’m doing omelets in the morning, primarily for truffles and omelets, I use the organics any Baking thing I do the arena cakes as well.

Now I do buy the regular eggs, our youngest daughter and our old Center love Excel. It now eats up eggs right yeah. Whenever I’m making excelled, I’m usually using eight to ten eggs and they both love. It Carrie gold is another. One of our staples Billy says Kerry gold, probably more than I do yeah I do every morning for ages. I use Terry gold. He hasn’t done it in the coffee, yet he can’t have to do that boy yeah! I don’t do that stuff at Costco as well as I always have the unsalted butter.

We have quite a few recipes that call for the unsalted butter, so it’s ready yeah. So I always make sure I have that on hand and ready to go Philadelphia, Cream Cheese. An absolute staple in the house why go ahead be took dad had pizza, that’s the only thing. I know we use it for there’s a couple other recipes, but also call for the Philadelphia Cream Cheese, but the fact that is the majority of our cream cheese.

So another two bags table that we have in our house is almond flour. Many many many recipes call for the almond flour, so we always have at least two bags on and at any given time. The other thing that we keep on hand is the baking cocoa you’ve done a couple different articles with that the mug cakes things of that nature, so it’s always good to have for a sweet treat the one thing that surprised me is every time we would go To Kroger or somewhere she’d say pick up some vanilla extract and that little bottle was like nine dollars, twelve dollars, something like that right well, Tosca might be a little more expensive on the initial purchase, but what you get for that price? Amazing! Let me tell you it’s 30 bucks and after the vanilla extract yeah, I figure out how many asks you.

37. 28 bucks yeah. It definitely is a game changer when it comes to purchasing vanilla, especially if you’re going to use it for more than one recipe. The birch benders keto pancake mix is amazing. Let me tell you when we buy that stuff at the store we get a lot smaller bag and it costs eight or nine dollars. This thing is like three times the amount for just a little bit more. So definitely if you use that product, this is the way to go, get it at Costco.

Another thing we buy in bulk, obviously at Costco is my broccoli. I have five ounces of broccoli next to a piece of meat, probably at least four times a week. I, like this stuff, super easy, throw it in the microwave I split it up, and then I have a few meals. I do meal prep in containers and I set it all aside and then I eat that for the next couple days. The broccoli is awesome and then I steal the broccoli to put in with my chicken in alfredo sauce, even for your soup and for my soup.

Yep another thing to put next to a piece of chicken in the afternoon, for me at least, is the Caesar salad kit. Now I don’t use the Cutrone’s, I do use those the dressing experian there, but I really like their Caesar salad kits. Stacy does too so when we open the back, we get about three to four servings out of that bag, so we’re in the produce department of Costco you’ll notice. Everything is a little bigger.

I really like their mushrooms there I cut those up. I wash them. I cut them up, I throw I want to p.M. A little olive oil man, they’re they’re, just awesome, and the next thing on the list here is we grab and we’re going to try hava kado again, I don’t know we’ll do another article of it, but we’re Going to try them again, because I know that there’s some great benefits too, you know and they say your taste buds changed and they say your taste much change, so we’re going to give it another.

Try one more try, but there won’t be a article this time. I also grabbed a baggie, these mixed peppers now and then I just wash them up cut them up and again fry them up in a pan, real quick, so tasty so good for you really good stuff. We just tried this bag of cauliflower rice. I have not made it yet. My intention is to use a little bit of soy a little bit of teriyaki, sauce and fry it up in a pan with some butter and see.

If I can replicate something close to a fried rice, it might be disgusting. I don’t know, the other thing you can do is throw some salt, pepper and butter on it and try and eat it as a side dish and again haven’t done it yet. So let me know in the comments if you have and what do you think of it or the best way to make it. Everybody knows we’re not doing sugar on keto right. So the monk fruit from LA canto is is a great substitute.

It’s kind of like swerve to Stacie uses in her recipes mm-hmm. Everybody knows I have a sweet tooth, so I tend to do more of the sweet treats so that I don’t feel like. I need to go away from quito when I want something sweet yeah and that be used a little bit of coffee here, and there too, I actually use the monk fruit drops as well. Yeah so see there, either or depending on what we have most of at that time.

Now, with the avocados remember how we talked about trying the avocado skin, which we will do, but we do use the avocado oil and we do use the avocado spray yeah. What kind of oil I’m used for vegetables sometimes instead of olive oil and the avocado spray I use for things? I don’t want to stick like if I put some parchment paper down or some foil down and I’m going to make something in the oven like the tortilla chips or I don’t know anything, I could spray a little bit of the avocado spray and nothing sticks and That kind of replaces those old canola sprays that we used to use all the time.

Oliver can’t go wrong, use the heck out of it. I use it a lot. I do it mainly for vegetables, I’ll, put vegetables and mix them up with some garlic and stuff love. Love, love the stuff. Yes, and I use it when I do the crispy chicken or the parmesan crusted pork chops and coconut oil ain’t bad either. I’ve tried some of that in the pan and mixed up some things. It doesn’t really have like a super strong, coconutty taste to it.

To me it is pretty good and you used it for fat bombs. Yeah I’ve tried a couple of fat bombs with the coconut oil. They always call for a dark chocolate. I’m not a fan of dark chocolate, so I’m I found I haven’t, found a really good fat bomb for me with that. Quite yet, but we’ll see cilantro lime, crema, this stuff is awesome again. Greg and Stacey turned us on to this from kzp dough. We were out there in Kalamazoo doing something and we were making taco balls.

I think that day – and you know goods like hey, have you tried this so no haven’t tried, it tried it and guess what we’re buying it a pretty regular basis. Every time we make anything, it has a type of meat or type of bass with a taco ball, I’m putting that stuff on it. I love the taste. True story, true story, I see, I see we do use a lot of spices. I now make my own taco seasoning mix yep in Julie labels and Bill.

Does his chicken rub, so we always have a ton of spaces. We try to get the big bottles when we can. Paprika is one of the big ones that we can get from Casco. We use paprika often the pure sea salt is something we always have on hand and goes in almost everything that we cook a lot of the recipes that we do and definitely a staple. In pepper. We use a lot of pepper in this house. We are not afraid of pepper, not afraid of pepper.

So if I make pigs in the morning, I’m putting pepper and salt every day, yes, but lots of pepper, definitely in a lot of recipes yeah. The other thing is the pink Himalayan sea salt. We have it on hand, then you have quite a few recipes that will call for that too adds a different flavor to it. So that’s pretty good as well, not my favorite honestly, but I know it’s good for you and we do use it yeah in the recipes.

It kind of hides it a little bit right. No, I wouldn’t put that in my eggs just personally but yeah. It’s not bad when she puts in their recipe and all you did that way, sneak it in minced garlic. We use the heck out of this stuff. We do almost all the meats that we make. We use the minced garlic and on our fat head Pizza, vegetables. All kinds of places every time you turn around pulling out the mince garlic so now onto some of the drinks, we have an RO system here at home and I love it and we’ve added some minerals and some other things into that, our own filtering system.

So I tend to drink a majority. That’s a eight! Even ninety percent of my drinking is water and I drink a lot. But when we go to Costco we splurge occasionally we buy like the propel zero. I love that stuff and I really like the way that that comes in a variety pack, so you don’t get tired of one flavor. You grab one this day and you grab another one a different day and another drink we’ve tried. It recently was the I believe they call it.

Bai Bai they’re, pretty good too. They have a different taste to them, but it’s just something to throw into the refrigerator and have as a an offering or a different taste. If you just want to grab and go with something last time, the drink list is, if is, if you haven’t tried these, give them a try. Costco sells a variety pack and they’re, really pretty good. Yes, I’ll grab my drink of water, I’ll grab a bottle of water.

Take a few drinks first put, the zip is in shake it up. Trust me trust me if you have never done this before take a few drinks first put. The zip is in then put the cap on and shake it up, because if you don’t get him a mess like I did so just you know, take care of ice before key Tori needs to be a really heavy milk drinker. Yes, you do every day every day had to have my milk, but I had stronger bones.

That’s true! So now I always have a little bit of almond milk on hand great for recipes and just to have a sip of milk, so in the health beauty in pharmacy area of Costco. Two of the things that I use are the apple cider, vinegar capsules. I like those because just kids teased about the cider vinegar, so I’m trying to get the outside the vinegar in in a different form in a capsule form, so I’m trying to do good right and the other thing I use from that area is super beet complex.

I take that every day as well. For me, I use the nature’s bounty, hair, skin and nails. I’ve been using that for about six months and definitely notice the difference. Yeah, you are having some trouble of hair loss in the beginning. I think right yeah. However, I find out now that it’s pretty menopause causing the hair loss, not Kido – oh geez, sorry, but it does help your hair skin and nails alright, but it does okay, a few staples that we have that I used almost every time I do any baking is Parchment paper are usually yeah, can’t have enough parchment paper, it’s great.

So, when you’re rolling out the dough’s yeah, it’s not sticking to your rolling. Pin it’s not sticking to your hands. That’s sticking to the counter! It comes right off when you’re done baking. I’ve even used it to make bacon yeah deep, well sheet. Aluminum, foil is also something that we keep on hand it’s great when you have to let something set up, and we want to cover it when you put it in the refrigerator, and it’s also really nice to store things with as well.

Yep. Their foil is thicker. Next, on my list are the vinyl gloves bill makes fun. I don’t like to touch raw meat so, but he’s the final whoops and it works well for me, are you sold now read means I don’t like to touch the meat, it’s a texture thing, but I will tell you garbage bags. We go through a ton, more garbage bags because we’re cooking all fresh now, cooking at home and cookie, more real foods, yeah yeah, definitely stead throwing on a McDonald’s bag, we’re making all this food and then all the waste of that food or the XS or the Skins or whatever all goes in the garbage, absolutely there must have yeah, and I like that.

Garbage bag safer, archaeans well and we just go through so many of them and they were so economical compared to just going and buying a smaller package or get ripped off with us at the store. She knows that’s one of the reasons I do love Kasich. Oh, hey, it’s flu season, guys and also everybody’s all worked up about this coronavirus stuff too, but basically it is flu season. Don’t forget that? Yes, so we go through a lot of tissue in this house with the kids and everything and then when Lauren comes home she takes some tissue back to the dorms.

I think she feeds everybody else to eat it, but we do go through a lot, so we buy in bulk at Costco. We use the heck out of it and I really like it. Yeah Clorox wipes goes right along with that we’re always sanitized and everything whitening things down doorknobs. When Julie comes home from school, I cringed to think of all the things that she’s touched along the way, and I want her to wash her hands when she comes home from school.

I know that might be a little crazy, but then I grab a clerics clock and I’m getting the door knobs and anything else is she talks before she came in okay, just because I’m kind of weird like that and don’t forget to wake your fridge handles the Last two things on the list for today are not Kido but definitely staples in the household we use everybody’s advice, household, the tide and UNSTOPABLES cuz you’ve got us no good yeah.

You got ta smell, good and here’s the thing you get more for your money, more volume for the price, I believe at least at Cosmo. So when we do know, we pick up the tide, we pick up the downy or the fabric sheets. So that’s the majority of the things that we buy when we go to Costco. Hopefully you got some new ideas. You know we did quite a few items here on these last three trips that we shared with you guys.

So maybe in the comments below, let us know what your favorite things from Costco are. If we didn’t cover one of them, let us know, because I’d like to look for it and start using it, possibly absolutely yeah. So that’s how we all learn. So thanks for joining us and keep it keto, you

Pumpkin Seeds are a great addition to your Keto snack list!

Best Keto foods at Sprouts | Best keto foods at sprouts.

What’s up family, I’m ray and I’m Joe, and we are two crazy kids. If you’re new, to our blog, welcome here onto crazy heroes, we do different things like product reviews. We do recipe articles, we talk about various keto topics and then every Monday we sit down on the couch for keto on the couch. We just kind of 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 also have a website which is too crazy, ketones calm and that’s we’re going to find all four 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 the little bell icon in that way.

Every single time we upload a new article, you’ll be alerted to yeah. So it’s Wednesday we took the day off because I actually had to leave early morning prayer this morning dude. So you were out early yeah. I’ve been up since 5:00 a.M. Wow and I was going to vlog when I first woke up and I’m like yeah. That’s not happening so it’s now like 9:30, but we’re going to vlog anyway. We’re going we’re doing this.

I actually slept in later than normal this morning, because it’s Wednesday and Monday, my mom had cataract surgery on one of her eyes and we had to be like at the doctor’s appointment like really early, and then we had to follow up on Tuesday. Again, we had to get up like really early. So today I was like I pushed that snooze button like 50 times. What is the point of the snooze button? You don’t know it gives you like that false little sense of like reward reward.

I don’t get the snooze button at all to me. It’s the most annoying thing in the world. It goes off at five o’clock. You hit the snooze button at 5:05. It goes off again by the time you finally fall back asleep. That stupid thing is going off again, it’s it’s just a procrastination like adrenaline rush that you’re like okay, I’m getting away with something I’m getting away with something you’re really not because then you wind up having to like race for the rest of your day.

Let us know down in the comments section: are you a snooze button person or are you not a snooze button person? Usually I’m pretty good about not hitting the snooze button, but today it was Danny. Personally, I’m not even an alarm person. I just tell my body: hey: you need to get up in the morning 99 % of the time I do get up, or I just don’t go to bed the night before so when Caleb said like hey, are you ready to like head out? I was like oh, my gosh.

Is it? Is it time for school like? Oh, my goodness, I mean he got no breakfast this morning like nothing. Well, it’s like. I said it’s about 9:30. They just opened up a sprouts near us finally, and we had 45 minutes away, so it opened up like the week before the threat of the hurricane yeah, so we’re going to head over there now. Are you super proud of me because my mom visited this? Like a couple of weeks ago – and I didn’t go with her – I was like I’m saving myself for Joe well.

I did look online and saw that there were a couple of things on sale. So I’m glad that you waited to go with me good yeah. All right, let’s do this so Johnson, it uh we made it to sprouts and even though wear my jacket cuz, I know it’s going to be cold in the grocery store, I’m wearing my two crazy Keenan shirt and I’m actually going to be cold. I know somewhere in my sweatshirt, and I am like really pleased with the quality yeah.

These came from Amazon and it is a super good quality. I’m like really really happy with the part they’re not like itchy and weird, and the neck isn’t like choking me like all good things yeah, because before we even like put them up like on to Amazon, to actually sell which we order them for ourselves. So, like. Oh, let’s make sure that it’s good qualities going to be wonky, but no they’re good and they seem to be like true to size, yeah so yeah.

I think you’re wearing this all and it’s the ladies small and then this is the large yeah. So we’re going to head in the sprouts I’m going to drink a little bit more of my bank, I’m like addicted to these things like this is like not a good thing. We avoided them for a long time because people had said that, like once you bring them into your life, you won’t be able to function without them and like yeah yeah I mean there’s, the ingredients are okay.

They’re, not the soup, we’re cleanest, but they’re, not bad. I mean it is sweetened with slick erosive. You don’t like sucrose, you might not want to use them, but also and remember a lot of I see online. All the time people are talking about sucrose label. Sucrose is Splenda. No, it’s it’s not it’s. Splenda has suckler in it, but it also has a bunch of other stuff. I honestly don’t drink them that much just because they’re super sweet, they’re super sweet like almost overly sweet.

You drink one every couple days and the only reason I’m drinking them is because a few weeks ago they GNC had that they were selling them for a dollar a dollar. So we literally like we’re like 8 GS within like three miles of our house. We literally – and it was a limit of like four or something that are six. They have a limit yeah, so we, like literally all of us, were going into every GMC and getting the limit for the day.

So we ended up with, like I don’t like 40 of them. Oh my gracious, but you know yeah. Now I think once they’re gone, I don’t plan on like loading up on them. Honestly, I think, as far as like an energy drink goes, I like the stevia energy, drink or Z via this w bran energy drink, and actually the only place that we’ve ever been able to find them in a store front have been sprouts. Yes route tell them.

We usually get them from Amazon and have them dropship to the house, but I’m hoping that sprouts hasn’t, but maybe they have a different flavor or something yeah. I like the zvo ones. These actually give me too much energy, sometimes yeah, like you’re, like oh, my gosh. What am I going to do? There’s so much ladies, give you the perfect amount of energy. They have done a lot of funny articles about like people punching trees, and I mean just being an idiot like just a jokey one like Caleb was showing me.

One was like bang and like makes me act like a crazy person. Well, I made the mistake the other day, though of I drank one of these and then I was going to my game and I’ve been working outside all day, so I’m like oh, I need to take some electrolytes, so I drank a zip Fez within 15 minutes Of drinking one of the oh, my lord, that was a mistake. Well, I am excited that. Not only is there sprouts here, but there’s also Dollar Tree and across the street, there’s all these, so this is like the perfect shopping hub for me yeah.

So let’s go in we’re going to see, I don’t think I’ll, be able to film in sprouts we’ll see if we can kind of sneak stuff, but it will at least show you what we get when we come out. Yes and then now we’re going to go hit, you want hit dollar treaty we’re going to hit all these, then we’re going to home and film some articles and we’ll show you what guy we’re going to eat for lunch later today. So they have the Petersons brand stuff: we’ve got Peterson’s hot dogs, Peterson’s bacon and Peterson’s sausage.

Patties love it. This is actually a really good price on this premium crab. It’s like grill crabmeat, the claw meat, and it’s only ten dollars talking about doing a article on these fake meat point things they have the beyond me and they have the sausages. They have light light and the light light which I think is really expensive. But at six dollars I don’t know, I think we should try it. You want to do a article on fake meat Rachel.

No, I mean we’re talking like a carb per hotdog. Well, we’re going to get the burger all right, so you’re still looking eight carbs per burger. I know, but we’re going to we have to see. Is this as good as real beef Yeah right? Try these just not make myself pain. What is it six dollars for? Basically, just eggs and cauliflower, I feel like we could make this. What do you think Joe? We have to try? I really want to try them, but they’re too expensive from the line.

This is some of the best coffee creamer. There is, and it’s on sale for 49 – probably the safest way for me to bind that zero $ 0.99 like single, serve things. This way, you don’t overdo it yeah, because I will eat that entire container. Look at this now don’t go nuts soybeans bread. I think we’re getting a little far now, if you can come up with a chocolate D spread Joe, that could have way less carbs than this, because this has 10 carbs for a tablespoon.

Then I feel like we would be very rich people. Chocolate mixed with e sounds delish. Please make this happen. This is our second favorite and butter, and it’s on sale for $ 1 off of time, so we’re going to get something while we’re on and I think we’re going to try there geek. I started to get like really scared, because, like look over here, it was like 849 on sale. I was like is that a dozen? But now we have a that’s an incredible deal 399 for the happy egg company way to achieve it.

The awesome, but we have 12 dozen eggs in our refrigerator right now. I don’t think we need any eggs. What is this one? The farmer’s hen house that looks cute is this true lime, true orange they’re, coming out with seasoning blends lime, garlic and cilantro or orange ginger, get that orange ginger. It comes out hey. We know these guys. They go together like awesome and awesome. They even have the LA cantos chocolate chips.

Yes abou, those you’re interested, I know on the website. They only sell them in like packages of eight or ten you can buy in here now $ 9. It is so nice to start seeing more and more keto products in the stores drop enough, BOM calm. I do think it’s cheaper on the website, though, and we have the a coupon code. It’s too crazy, Cheetos they’re, coming out with, like a coating mix almost like reminds me of like shake and bake.

So they have this one they’re suggesting goes with like coconut shrimp. They have a recipe on the back. This one is if you’re wanting to make pork chops she’s basically shaken though, and this one is for avocado fries. What’s the ingredients almond meal, flaxseed, paleo powder, herbed, salt, free, all-purpose, seasoning, nothing, bad! I think we should try one of these. What is it 3? Total carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber on this one: let’s try this one, because it will do this.

One is 3 and 2. I bet you could do a chicken with this also so excited because cauliflower tortilla was and then I turned it over and a serving size. There’s 22 net carbs in a serving size like I could eat this entire package. But, like ya know, oh my goodness, I know we don’t need any TV. I have a wall of ZD abut. Look at this, so the six packs are on sale for 399, but the 10 packs are on sale for 3 and refine sic├ín.

The best price I’ve ever gotten is 60 cent suggest what see all those 10 packs I’m buying every one of them right now. Vivia wall, so probably joe, is going a little crazy, but this is the best deal on TV we’ve ever seen. We actually even gave a 12-pack to another lady because she was like. Can I have just one so Sacha Inchi is something that you see in a lot of products and it’s got some great macro, so you’re, looking at 13 grams of fat, 9 grams of protein there’s five total carbs and five fiber.

So this is fantastic they’re! Actually, really delicious, but they’re kind of expensive. It’s $ 24 for this jar, which honestly isn’t terrible. I mean, if you buy macadamia nuts you’re going to you know, spend that much. I would get them, but I don’t feel like spending $ 25 right now and as I’m spending all that money on vivia right, the same thing for Mocambo beans. Look at this. It is ten fat. Six protein you’ve got 12 grams of carbohydrates, but nine Dara, Terry dietary fiber and the serving size is 12 of these giant beans, and it’s actually got some great serotonin compounds.

Omega-9 fatty acids, it’s the 30 % fiber. I hope we don’t run out of zviad Joe. They were looking at us a little crazy buying all that dvi-i look at his crazy. However, the deal was so good and it was either what ten, ten four three, ninety three, ninety nine or you could have six for 399, and I was reading people pick up. The six-pack it happened all of the time when I worked at Party City, though they they have a standing deal that you would get like.

If you buy one thing of cups, you got another package for free and all of the time people would be like. I don’t want the free one. I don’t want the second one cuz, I don’t know where I’m going to store it, and it’s like how about like, given to somebody. I don’t know where we’re going to store all the vivia. But how do you think I went down, but I felt bad so, as I’m loading up literally every 12-pack, they have there.

We were shelf coloring. This lady comes up and she’s like. Are you buying them all and on my wall? Oh yeah, I’m like what flavor do you want? She was like just one root beer. I’m like okay! Here you go. I felt bad that that is my favorite, but we don’t want somebody going without well. She was the only smart one that I saw actually buying the 10 pack. She picked up the six pack and then wait wait.

A second is that right. Why would I want to pay the same amount for less? It made no sense, but I readed like four people doing, but I actually was talking to a Publix cashier, and she said that that was something that she saw. All the time to where they’d have like buy one get one free for like toilet paper, and I don’t want the free one and they they were like now I’ll just want the one: let’s go over quickly, what we bought.

So we don’t make this too too long, so we got we’re going to try there cheese, cheese, snacks, cheese bites yeah, they had these cheese bites. They were on sale for two dollars: a bag. Actually, what a try one and we got. What is the day we got cheddar and I think one of that flavor was massive, but these are the just. The ingredients were red, cheddar cheese, which is milk, salt, lactic, acid, microbial rennet, and that’s it and carotene for coloring.

They seem like they’re just slightly smaller and poofier, but it’s a hundred and fifty calories per serving there’s two servings in the whole bag. 12 grams of fat, zero, carbs, 11 grams of protein. Those are good cause, you’re, really good. My grilling up mmm, like some of the best we’ve, had very buttery. Okay. What else we got in that bag? We got yeah. We showed this. That’s our second-favorite butter, it’s about never on sale, but it was until cheaper than carry gold to that.

We got some. Okay, so I bought this air chilled Organic ground chicken. It was on sale for like four dollars off a package, and you know what I’m doing this. Can you guess I’m going to try to duplicate the real good jalapeno poppers, but actually make it so that you can taste the cheese and jalapeno? Oh, if you do that, I will be so happy. That’s what the purpose of this is and then we got look. Some raw shrimp yep, so this shrimp was on sale like seven dollars off a pound, so I bought two pounds of it so that we can make our jambalaya that we’ve been making.

Oh, it’s so good! Then we got some bacon yeah bacon. Did you see this deal on the bacon? I did not five dollars off a pound for the uncured bacon, so I bought two four two two two two two pound packages BAM. So we had four pounds of die and we got some of your creamer. Well, the creamer is kind of for you. We got two of this one, for this is the best creamer. This is the chi-chu ki tu and a serving sizes, three tablespoons and it’s got MCT oil in it.

It’s got some protein in it: 50 calories per serving five total grams of fat, three grams of protein, zero carbohydrates in three grams and three tablespoons, and it is super they have the name right. Yes, super the ingredients in this purified water whey protein concentrate cream, coconut MCT, oil, monk, fruit, natural flavors, now the natural, vanilla, flavor, natural, flavor, potassium phosphate and gle and gum we got one of the haystacks I like that flavor, but I don’t know why.

But I’m not a huge hazelnut creamer fan I should be. This is the same company that makes us super coffees which I’m in love with, but I could never find like less than three dollars and fifty cents in it yeah that’s an invention when we just make our own but yeah this stuff really good. It was on sale like two dollars off and did you see the only reason we bought three of them expires May of 2020? I really feel like we’ll drink it, but so long as you don’t open it it.

Don’t you open it. It’s going to go bad. So the key is: don’t open until you need it, so you know you’re going to use it nope. So I’m interested though what is everybody else’s? Favorite creamer flavor, like I like hazelnut you like vanilla, you like mocha, I like vanilla, I like hazelnut, I’m not a aged mocha, so comment down below and let us know what do you like to put in flavor your coffee with yeah? What else we got? We got a whole bunch of these guys yeah I bought like these were on sale, three four five, which is about 30 cents, 40 cents less than we normally take.

I like to treat myself with them every once in a while. We don’t buy a lot of them, so I think I bought like 10 of them or nine of them. I think I bought. We got some of the good tummy, I think heavy whipping cream. This is I like this one at organic pasture-raised. It doesn’t have any care gained in it, they use Galang gum instead, and so we do sprightly spring for this, especially if we’re making some Aikido Chow ice cream.

It makes a huge difference: d yeah. We got some gooey normally by the oldies key, but this one was on sale. I wanted to try this one, because this is the refrigerated and it’s usually expensive. It’s vital farms. Yeah. Do you wan na? Do this? Oh yeah sausage. We got this sausage. It is so hard to find sausage that doesn’t have sugar or dextrose, or something like that. Usually we just end up dealing with that and now we’ve got to find a whole new sausage place and meat place where our meat place.

Penn Dutch announced yesterday they’re going out of business like today, yeah. Yes, we have to find a new place. I think we’re going to go a lot more to like us wellness and like and a butcher box, because after them that was the next cheapest. The only reason we didn’t do, a lot of stuff from you know, butcher box, and us wellness is because you can heat pan Dutch prices, yeah and and easy access like you walked into the store the same day and got it yeah.

But us wellness and butcher box, their prices actually be Costco prices a lot of times. It’s amazing they’re really good deals it well. I will link down below. You got some oil, oh yeah. We needed some more coconut oil spray. We just use this for, like our waffle makers and stuff, like that, we got some of this new season yeah. We can saw that this season Rachel found this. This looks really interesting, maybe put on some chicken or some steak or something I’m excited to try it.

I almost want to like crack it open and see what it tastes like right now, but it’s orange orange ginger. I bet it’s good. Let’s try it they’re all thinking we’re gross for them for sanitary. Hmm! I don’t need that for food. That is good. It’s uh, curry, good. It is I like some curt stuff, especially if you’re doing like a an orange chicken yeah. That’s what I’m thinking great for our ice cream. It’s good and honestly.

I use this when I want to be more heavy-handed with a creamer like a latte, because this is it’s a serving sizes. Eight fluid ounces. Now, I’m not going to use eight fluid ounces in a coffee, but I might want to have more than a tablespoon or two in a coffee, and this is one carbohydrate total and one fiber, so zero carbs. This is, you know, really fun memories. This is really good if you want a latte, if you miss Starbucks right and you want a latte where it’s 3/4 milk, like we usually use like 14 or 18 ounce mugs yeah 8.

Ounces of this add in your coffee. Maybe a few drops among fruit sweetener. If you want this is our favorite one from them. This is the coconut almond milk. They also have almond milk unsweetened. I was going to say you got ta check the label on the back. They also had a couple of flavored varieties, they all have sugar and it all has sugar in them and then they also came out with a creamer yeah. They shelf-stable like a creamer, but I looked on the back and the carbs weren’t great on that.

So I would stick with this if you’re interested this is pretty much we use. We’ve walked away from by buying the almond, milks and stuff like that, because again, there’s no cure gain in this, and the KeyArena seems to like be funny with us, sometimes cuz. I love the the super coffee. I love the creamer, it’s delicious, but sometimes I want I want to. I want a long run, a lot you know, or I have multiple cups of coffee, as we well know like a ton, so I can’t afford to have you know two or three tablespoons of heavy whipping cream 14 times a day right now.

This is lunch. Lunch / dinner, so we’ve always gotten the Whole Foods one. So I figured let’s try the sprouts version. Yeah bacon Halep got a two bacon, jalapeno cheeseburgers mmm, and then I got two of this was the cowboy burger, oh yeah, blue cheese, cowboy burger. That’s what I want: no, no, no we’re not doing that. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to make one of each one today, okay, then we’re going to split it, so we each get a half and then we’ll have the other ones tomorrow, because I need to be able to taste both yeah and we Have hard time sharing? Yes with it’s like hey, that’s your dinner.

You know we kinda have a buddy there’s nano, so I think that is everything that we got we ended up. Are you ready? I know Irene want to say it out loud. We spent two hundred and thirteen dollars, which is a lot of money for us to go grocery shopping, but we haven’t been grocery shopping in like since the last time we did a article. I almost think we went with you guys last time, yeah, it’s been at least a month yeah.

You know I mean there. We may spend like just buying some like little stuff here and there maybe 20 to 30 dollars a week, but we pretty much stockpile stuff in our freezers whenever something’s on sale or like zeebee, or something like that. Because of all of this money that we spent. I think like sixty eight dollars of it was just on the cbs-tv Imani, but we’re good on TV for a long time. One would hope I would well we’re good on my flavors, but Maria tells God I 50 % of what we bought.

There are Rachel’s flavors yeah. Well, when the lady said like can I have a root beer and I was like you want ginger, ale and she’s like no root beer, ginger ale, it’s like no root beer. Do I think you want ginger ale, it’s delicious! That’s Rachel’s! Favorite flavor great beer, so we’re going to go home, we’re going to unpack we’re going to make our launch and then we have some filming some other articles to do including a keto chow ice cream yeah.

Well, we got home from sprouts and I went to make the burger is that way, bah and we remember, we have chicken wings. I completely forgot that we went to Buffalo wallings. We actually treated ourselves for dinner last night. Yes, well, they actually have like a deal going on, but you have to eat there in the restaurant yeah, so they’re dealing with buy-one-get-one-free wings is you have to eat in the restaurant but of course we’re Rachael and gentleman we always find a way around it.

So we order like an alarming amount of wings at once, and then we just take you know a bunch of at home, but it always scares the waitress a little bit well, we ordered like two larges in two mediums, knowing that we were only going to eat Like eight or nine wings, apiece like how hungry are you and then we brought them home because we usually like to crisp them up more. They never can cook them as crispy as we want them anything we’re weird but yeah.

I like I’m crunchy. We tell them extra, crispy and they’re still not crispy enough yeah yeah, so we brought home wings. So we have wings so we’re going to eat these and then we’ll probably eat those burgers later on for dinner sounds good and since we haven’t eaten, we may also have the keto Joe as well. Yes, so see how we have to figure out our macros for the day, because we are in like day three of our reverse diet, so we got to make sure we hit all our macros right.

So I did want to say before we wrap it up, though, in the vlog, when we were in sprouts, we showed you guys that I forgot the name of it that other meat not to beyond me, but the other one that they had there. We were going to get that and sample it and tell you guys what we thought, but it had way too many carbs. The beyond me only has like three carbs in a serving, but they didn’t have the burgers.

Well, they didn’t have the burgers and it wasn’t on sale. They only had it like the one-pound tub yeah and it was like ten dollars. So we’re going to wait and as soon as we can find the beyond me on sale, we are going to sacrifice our bodies and eat a non meat, burger, hey even dr. Barry said he was going to at least try it there’s no way, I’m ever giving Up meat for beyond me: well we’re going to try it anyway.

I feel like Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation. Where he’s like, were they heavenly kind of a contest between, like you know, not meat and a hamburger, and this guy is like trying to elevate it with all of these different flavors and toppings and things it’s like everybody’s, like yeah, hamburger, wins yeah, so yeah we’re Going to look for that on sale as soon as we get it, we will definitely do that and in the meantime, what we should probably do is go try one of those Burger King ones, yeah like the impossible Burt.

I think it’s called the impossible burger. So we’ll see if our Burger King has that that’ll be another article coming up awesome. Well, I’m ready to eat. We got a set of wings here. The other sets in the air fryer, but we’re going to start here yeah. So that’s going to end today’s article. Let us know down in the comments section what your favorite store to get some of the better quality products is that Whole Foods is it Lucky’s sprouts? Is it sprouts? Is it Trader Joe’s yeah, which one do you have near you or, if you’re fortunate, to have them all? Let us know what your favorite one is down below, because I am really enjoying sprouts, but I learned very quickly with sprout you’ve got to know your prices.

Yes and shop, the sales you have and you have to shop the sales because I noticed like with their vivia. We got an awesome deal today, but their normal price on GBA was $ 6.99. A six-pack compare that to the $ 4.99 at Whole Foods yeah. So you’ve really got to know your prices with these places, but let us know down in the comment section what your favorite place is.

First of all, let’s get this out of the way. What does the word keto mean? Basically, the body can run on two different fuels. One is sugar from carbohydrates in the food wheat and that’s what most people today primarily use.

Let’s say if they’re eating bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, etc, the other fuel is fat. The keto diet is a very low carb diet, so low in carbs that the body has to switch to mainly using fat for fuel, for example, from real foods like eggs, meat, avocados butter, olive oil, not susceptor, even the brain can become fuelled by fat when the Body is out of sugar. Fat is converted in the liver into energy molecules called ketones that fuel the brain and the diet that results in this is called ketogenic, meaning it produces ketones, and that’s why the diet is called the keto diet being fueled mostly by fat.

A state called ketosis has many benefits, including that you become a fat-burning machine. It’s perfect for weight loss without hunger burning fat 24/7, even when you’re sleeping it also gives you tons of energy. You’ll basically never run out, while the keto diet has become super popular in the last few years. It’s actually not entirely new. The foundation of keto is something old that you’ve heard about a million times.

It’s straight low-carb diet. It’s a gluten-free diet. It’s similar to the Paleo diet and it’s very close to the old and well-known Atkins diet. The basic idea is super simple and based on real foods. You simply avoid most carbohydrates, like sugar, processed junk food, bread, pasta, rice, etc, and instead you eat meat, fish, eggs, vegetables and natural fats like butter. What is different with keto is that it’s a supercharged, low-carb diet.

We can make sure you get the maximum benefit. Saving cheeto is a natural byproduct of a hormone in our bodies that helps to keep us young. As we age, the level of 7 cheeto drops slowing down our metabolism. The result weight gain, but studies show that a 7 keto supplement can rev up your metabolism to help you lose that fat off your belly and the best part it’s extremely safe. So you see that picture of you you’re not happy about it.

I’m not happy about it, but the reality is there are things that will naturally push your metabolism back to where it used to be in the 30s. Before you had this issue all right now, your body naturally produces something called 7 keto. This things we’re talking about today, if that supplement – and it’s always supposed to be there, but we make a lot less of it after you get into our 30s and my time, we’re in our 40s and 50s and 60s is less and less and less and less So here’s how 7 keto works inside of our body, your metabolism has a set point and if it’s set slow you’ll accumulate a lot more fat, the faster your metabolism is there more muscle you can be able get in your body and a lot of us start Here in our 30s and 40s and 50s then work our way down so that most of us becomes fat and that belly is where we see it most.

Evidently, what 7 keto does is allow you to take your metabolism where you want it to be, because it’s delayed your thyroid gland, because it does all kinds of cool things with the energy factors in our cells. So it helps convert fat. The muscle then, the stepping keto it locks it in now try to move that all right. It won’t move too readily. It’s tough freezes you and your metabolism where you wanted to be back in the higher range now when I first saw this and I was dubious, so I had our medical unit research this.

It turns out. They’ve been studies done on this and what I’m going to gave folks for two months, this 17th, oh right, and they give them the diet they gave me exercise. Does it mean you don’t do those things you do have to do all these stuff we talked about. Besides this right, but with the 72, these folks are able to get their metabolism back into the right point. They took about 200 milligrams a day you

MEGA $850+ COSTCO GROCERY HAUL 65+ KETO ITEMS WE LOVE AND USE!

We were there all the time anyway. So this list will include over 60 items over $ 800 with the product of the things that we pick up at Costco, and I think it might find that it helps you if you’re not familiar with some of these products or if you don’t go to Costco.

Very often, or if you’re, not even a member, a lot of these things, you can get on Amazon, believe it or not, so you know me I’ll be linking some stuff in the description below anyway yeah. So, stick around see what all the things that we buy are and they’re, certainly even more than that at the store it’s just. This is a list of the things that we use, and this was what three trips right: three trips, three different trips and we’re combining it all into one.

Let’s take someone to talk a little bit about the store itself. We’ve been extremely busy it’s hard to film. In our warehouse one because I work there and everybody wants to chat with me, a lot of the members know who I am so it makes it very disruptive. So we’ve chosen not to actually film while were there, but we did take pictures of the products and price cards when we could, I think, we’re missing one.

Oh yeah yeah. I was putting it together before we did this article to talk about each of these items. So we’ll jump right into it copy draw, let’s start with my favorite cheese, cheese in more cheese and more cheese, that’s Stacey’s department, absolutely I’ve, always loved cheese. Since I was a little kid, we started off with our mozzarella cheese. This is a must-have in our household. At any given time it’s the basis of our Fathead pizzas, you know one of our favorites that we like to do and we did a how-to article.

That’s done very well for us, it is tapas. I usually mix up an egg with a little bit of nacho cheese for a trifle real, quick, absolutely the other staple that we like is the queso chihuahua cheese, chihuahua cheese, it’s about Wawa, cheese, yeah, Greg and Stacey. Kgp dough turned this on to that cheese and it’s definitely been a winner for Stacey. She loves that cheese and then we do taco bowls with it.

Yes are those taco bowls. We use that Kiesel yeah yeah, it’s good cheese, good, good, spicy, cheese. The Mexican cheese is another one. We love to do our tackle shows with the chocolate bowls with the flat breads with yeah. I’ve even seen, Stacey use a mission, carp shell, to make a quesadilla out of that and put it a little bit of jalapeno. Yes, yes, the next one is cheddar cheese, sugar. I can handle cheddar, you can handle again Bill likes to put cheddar on top of his chili yep.

I also put it on my broccoli and I love to make broccoli cheddar soup, with their cheddar cheese. Nope can’t go wrong with that. Can’t go wrong with each other, one of the other, quick and simple snack ideas that I always use as well as our daughters, love are. The mozzarella sticks now, don’t why are they great for snacking they’re great for homemade mozzarella sticks yeah, yeah radio. For that too Parmesan cheese, shakey cheese.

I call it. He always calls it’s tricky because you shake it. Okay, I mix this in with a couple of different recipes that I use even with the flat breads. It just gives a different texture to it, meatballs to the meatballs, and I love it with the parmesan crusted, pork, chops, cheese and texture of crust. That’s what she likes crunch is where it’s at crunches, where it’s at Thursday’s. So now it’s time to talk about the meats.

The one nice thing with Stacey working at Costco is she can get the prime picks of the rib eyes. I know everybody yeah, so we’ve gotten a couple batches of the rib eyes that have just been oh, my gosh perfection. They taste amazing. I even just did a article on how I make my rib eye steak. It’s wonderful! It’s a great treat now and then yeah. Absolutely he always asked after I buy them. He says how’d, it feel like a steak.

Yes – and I love me, the other thing I get from Costco is the chicken thighs they have the boneless chicken thighs and there’s no skin on them. I do grab some from the store that have skin on them as well with the boning, but the ones from Costco are just really nice package. You get a couple in in each package, so I don’t feel like I’m eat wasteful. I can pull out what I need and those chicken thighs are fantastic.

Another thing we get from there is regular ground beef. Now, instead of just getting a regular package of ground beef, we get the tube of ground beef, which is ten pounds. I believe yes just knock on the window, and anybody in the meat department can help you out with the tuba ground beef. It saves you money. Yeah, you get a better price per pound. We had to do the two tube they get into being 30.

40. 50 cents less per pound to do that to so, the tube is definitely worth looking into. If you’re, making a large amount, we tend to cook up that whole tube and put it into snap where and then we put it in the freezer when we pull it. When we want tacos – and we pull it when we want to make something, we also pick up the organic beef from Costco. That’s what I use when I’m going to make our meatballs hamburger patties.

They just definitely are just a really good tasting meat. I love a homemade hamburger for a quick meal bill tends to do for him and Julia the. I think it’s 1/3 pound beef, patty yeah that are possible from casco just fast and easy yeah. I like the home, cooked ones. Another thing that goes along with the meat very well is the rails, marinara sauce. We use that for our meatballs. We use it for all kinds of things.

Actually, I’ve even just made ground beef and put some rails and some shaky Parmesan cheese on it and just eat it like that, because that’s just how I roll sometimes it’s true, but the rails is great for a treat now and then, and we did pick up Recently here the beef pot roast it’s got a gravy in it and it’s got the beef in it. Oh my gosh, that’s a really nice little treat now and then to pick up.

This doesn’t really like that, but I love it. Next would be the roasted garlic sausage, it’s kind of like a Polish, a little bit like a hot dog. Oh my gosh, they’re, so good. I use them on the COS ass, a little spinning thing that cooks them up and gives them a nice crust. Love that thing another thing I always grab when I go in as a treat now man, maybe once a month I’ll, grab a rotisserie chicken, it’s already pre-made, I just strip it out.

I like to eat the thighs Stacy likes the chicken breast part, so she’ll tear that up and put it on a salad or something I just like the taste of it. I know that some people have issues with that, so I don’t do it very often, but I do like it chicken strips oh, my gosh. These are great. We use them without fredo sauce. We mix it in with a little bit of like ground, pepper and some garlic and some onion powder, because Stacy doesn’t like expiry things and it makes for a wonderful meal Stacy likes.

This is already precooked too, so you could throw it on top of the salad fast and easy just measure out a couple ounces, throw it on top that alfredo chicken is fantastic. Absolutely. I also like to do a couple ounces, usually about two ounces of the chicken strips and I’ll. Just do like a ranch dressing or Caesar dressing as a dipping sauce and I’m good to go, gives you a meal because you got a protein yeah and of course, you can’t go to Costco without buying bacon right bacon.

I buy the four packs of bacon a times. That’s the magic word of the article bacon yeah, you know we buy the four packs of bacon from Costco and Nightrain ration knows out to about once a week. The other thing for a bacon I use is the crumbles. The little crumbles I use those mainly in salads if we ever do make like a little quesadilla with that Mexican cheese or queso cheese, I’ll, throw some bacon bits in with that, of course, on the fat head pizzas, he has bacon and I do have it on The fat head – pizzas, yeah, that’s a staple got bacon, got ta, have the bacon absolutely oh and then add words to build omelets yeah.

I forgot about that yeah I put some bacon crumble, sometimes in an omelet, real, quick. This me it turns out. You know what happens is I start an omelet and it ends up being scrambled eggs. So you know he always eggs yeah. So that’s how that works, and last time I meet list would be tail off fruit. I love this stuff. I throw some of the pan with some vegetables a little bit of olive oil, so some of that gee use teriyaki sauce mix that all up cook it up.

Oh my gosh, it’s amazing! Next to a steak or a piece of chicken, it’s just fantastic! You! You owe it to yourself to try. These almonds happens to be one of my absolute favorites. I love them by themselves, but I actually really like to pair the almonds with extra sharp cheddar cheese, see that just doesn’t sound like a good combo, and I like both of those things. I just don’t think I want them together.

You know, and the funny thing is I would have never eaten them together, but I think my taste buds have changed slightly. Walnuts is another thing that we always have here at the house. I do a lot of baking with the walnuts our Kido mug cake has walnuts. Peekytoe moose has walnuts. You can’t go wrong with two ounces of walnuts in your hand, yeah. We always have 200 snack bags of walnuts and almonds in the and sometimes of academia TIFF.

We have them yeah and in the refrigerator, so there’s like a grab and go back for any of us that need to grab something to go. Yes, keeps you keeps you honest now the macadamia nuts. I have to be careful with those because our youngest daughter – yes, she tried it for the first time at Gregg and Stacy’s with Kazu Kido, I had to keep taking the bag away from her about Mike stop yeah she’s just sitting there eating them like it’s popcorn, Yeah and they’re like leave her alone, let her eat them.

I’m like no okay, it’s back to me now and these little beef sticks I find are fantastic for on-the-go. I actually grabbed the big pack. I think there’s 28 in the pack and – and I throw a couple of my car for a couple because you don’t have to refrigerate them even and and I always grab a big handful of them. And I give my daughter at college because I wanted to have something in their backpack between classes or one, not if she’s in a rush and then just they taste, wonderful and they’re, just so convenient in their own little packages.

Also, we found a new product at Costco called the keto snack mix. This is something great to sit down with a small bowl if you’re going to read like TV or something and you kind of Miss having that little snack, this will fit the bill perfectly. Also, these little cheese wisps are pretty darn good in a little Bowl. If you want a little snack, too kind of an indulgent thing, just sit down with little balls.

Those just measure him out follow the basics. Yeah next are the folio wraps. Everybody was talking about these before Costco had them, and the buzz was just crazy online about it. When we finally got him, I said: oh, we got to get them, who got trying well I’ll, tell you what the texture of them they’re very slick and smooth is not for me. I tried to do a tack on them. I tried to do some lunch meat in them.

They’re. Just not my thing: they don’t taste horrible they’re, just it’s a texture thing and I normally wouldn’t say I’m a texture person, but Stacy ate them now onto the baking stuff. For me, at any given time, we always have at least a couple dozen eggs in the house a couple dozen. What are you talking about six to eight dozen in almost any time, so maybe a few dozen more than a couple yeah we buy the organics and that’s what I use when I’m doing omelets in the morning, primarily for truffles and omelets, I use the organics any Baking thing I do the arena cakes as well.

Now I do buy the regular eggs, our youngest daughter and our old Center love Excel. It now eats up eggs right yeah. Whenever I’m making excelled, I’m usually using eight to ten eggs and they both love. It Carrie gold is another. One of our staples Billy says Kerry gold, probably more than I do yeah I do every morning for ages. I use Terry gold. He hasn’t done it in the coffee, yet he can’t have to do that boy yeah! I don’t do that stuff at Costco as well as I always have the unsalted butter.

We have quite a few recipes that call for the unsalted butter, so it’s ready yeah. So I always make sure I have that on hand and ready to go Philadelphia, Cream Cheese. An absolute staple in the house why go ahead be took dad had pizza, that’s the only thing. I know we use it for there’s a couple other recipes, but also call for the Philadelphia Cream Cheese, but the fact that is the majority of our cream cheese.

So another two bags table that we have in our house is almond flour. Many many many recipes call for the almond flour, so we always have at least two bags on and at any given time. The other thing that we keep on hand is the baking cocoa you’ve done a couple different articles with that the mug cakes things of that nature, so it’s always good to have for a sweet treat the one thing that surprised me is every time we would go To Kroger or somewhere she’d say pick up some vanilla extract and that little bottle was like nine dollars, twelve dollars, something like that right well, Tosca might be a little more expensive on the initial purchase, but what you get for that price? Amazing! Let me tell you it’s 30 bucks and after the vanilla extract yeah, I figure out how many asks you.

37. 28 bucks yeah. It definitely is a game changer when it comes to purchasing vanilla, especially if you’re going to use it for more than one recipe. The birch benders keto pancake mix is amazing. Let me tell you when we buy that stuff at the store we get a lot smaller bag and it costs eight or nine dollars. This thing is like three times the amount for just a little bit more. So definitely if you use that product, this is the way to go, get it at Costco.

Another thing we buy in bulk, obviously at Costco is my broccoli. I have five ounces of broccoli next to a piece of meat, probably at least four times a week. I, like this stuff, super easy, throw it in the microwave I split it up, and then I have a few meals. I do meal prep in containers and I set it all aside and then I eat that for the next couple days. The broccoli is awesome and then I steal the broccoli to put in with my chicken in alfredo sauce, even for your soup and for my soup.

Yep another thing to put next to a piece of chicken in the afternoon, for me at least, is the Caesar salad kit. Now I don’t use the Cutrone’s, I do use those the dressing experian there, but I really like their Caesar salad kits. Stacy does too so when we open the back, we get about three to four servings out of that bag, so we’re in the produce department of Costco you’ll notice. Everything is a little bigger.

I really like their mushrooms there I cut those up. I wash them. I cut them up, I throw I want to p.M. A little olive oil man, they’re they’re, just awesome, and the next thing on the list here is we grab and we’re going to try hava kado again, I don’t know we’ll do another article of it, but we’re Going to try them again, because I know that there’s some great benefits too, you know and they say your taste buds changed and they say your taste much change, so we’re going to give it another.

Try one more try, but there won’t be a article this time. I also grabbed a baggie, these mixed peppers now and then I just wash them up cut them up and again fry them up in a pan, real quick, so tasty so good for you really good stuff. We just tried this bag of cauliflower rice. I have not made it yet. My intention is to use a little bit of soy a little bit of teriyaki, sauce and fry it up in a pan with some butter and see.

If I can replicate something close to a fried rice, it might be disgusting. I don’t know, the other thing you can do is throw some salt, pepper and butter on it and try and eat it as a side dish and again haven’t done it yet. So let me know in the comments if you have and what do you think of it or the best way to make it. Everybody knows we’re not doing sugar on keto right. So the monk fruit from LA canto is is a great substitute.

It’s kind of like swerve to Stacie uses in her recipes mm-hmm. Everybody knows I have a sweet tooth, so I tend to do more of the sweet treats so that I don’t feel like. I need to go away from quito when I want something sweet yeah and that be used a little bit of coffee here, and there too, I actually use the monk fruit drops as well. Yeah so see there, either or depending on what we have most of at that time.

Now, with the avocados remember how we talked about trying the avocado skin, which we will do, but we do use the avocado oil and we do use the avocado spray yeah. What kind of oil I’m used for vegetables sometimes instead of olive oil and the avocado spray I use for things? I don’t want to stick like if I put some parchment paper down or some foil down and I’m going to make something in the oven like the tortilla chips or I don’t know anything, I could spray a little bit of the avocado spray and nothing sticks and That kind of replaces those old canola sprays that we used to use all the time.

Oliver can’t go wrong, use the heck out of it. I use it a lot. I do it mainly for vegetables, I’ll, put vegetables and mix them up with some garlic and stuff love. Love, love the stuff. Yes, and I use it when I do the crispy chicken or the parmesan crusted pork chops and coconut oil ain’t bad either. I’ve tried some of that in the pan and mixed up some things. It doesn’t really have like a super strong, coconutty taste to it.

To me it is pretty good and you used it for fat bombs. Yeah I’ve tried a couple of fat bombs with the coconut oil. They always call for a dark chocolate. I’m not a fan of dark chocolate, so I’m I found I haven’t, found a really good fat bomb for me with that. Quite yet, but we’ll see cilantro lime, crema, this stuff is awesome again. Greg and Stacey turned us on to this from kzp dough. We were out there in Kalamazoo doing something and we were making taco balls.

I think that day – and you know goods like hey, have you tried this so no haven’t tried, it tried it and guess what we’re buying it a pretty regular basis. Every time we make anything, it has a type of meat or type of bass with a taco ball, I’m putting that stuff on it. I love the taste. True story, true story, I see, I see we do use a lot of spices. I now make my own taco seasoning mix yep in Julie labels and Bill.

Does his chicken rub, so we always have a ton of spaces. We try to get the big bottles when we can. Paprika is one of the big ones that we can get from Casco. We use paprika often the pure sea salt is something we always have on hand and goes in almost everything that we cook a lot of the recipes that we do and definitely a staple. In pepper. We use a lot of pepper in this house. We are not afraid of pepper, not afraid of pepper.

So if I make pigs in the morning, I’m putting pepper and salt every day, yes, but lots of pepper, definitely in a lot of recipes yeah. The other thing is the pink Himalayan sea salt. We have it on hand, then you have quite a few recipes that will call for that too adds a different flavor to it. So that’s pretty good as well, not my favorite honestly, but I know it’s good for you and we do use it yeah in the recipes.

It kind of hides it a little bit right. No, I wouldn’t put that in my eggs just personally but yeah. It’s not bad when she puts in their recipe and all you did that way, sneak it in minced garlic. We use the heck out of this stuff. We do almost all the meats that we make. We use the minced garlic and on our fat head Pizza, vegetables. All kinds of places every time you turn around pulling out the mince garlic so now onto some of the drinks, we have an RO system here at home and I love it and we’ve added some minerals and some other things into that, our own filtering system.

So I tend to drink a majority. That’s a eight! Even ninety percent of my drinking is water and I drink a lot. But when we go to Costco we splurge occasionally we buy like the propel zero. I love that stuff and I really like the way that that comes in a variety pack, so you don’t get tired of one flavor. You grab one this day and you grab another one a different day and another drink we’ve tried. It recently was the I believe they call it.

Bai Bai they’re, pretty good too. They have a different taste to them, but it’s just something to throw into the refrigerator and have as a an offering or a different taste. If you just want to grab and go with something last time, the drink list is, if is, if you haven’t tried these, give them a try. Costco sells a variety pack and they’re, really pretty good. Yes, I’ll grab my drink of water, I’ll grab a bottle of water.

Take a few drinks first put, the zip is in shake it up. Trust me trust me if you have never done this before take a few drinks first put. The zip is in then put the cap on and shake it up, because if you don’t get him a mess like I did so just you know, take care of ice before key Tori needs to be a really heavy milk drinker. Yes, you do every day every day had to have my milk, but I had stronger bones.

That’s true! So now I always have a little bit of almond milk on hand great for recipes and just to have a sip of milk, so in the health beauty in pharmacy area of Costco. Two of the things that I use are the apple cider, vinegar capsules. I like those because just kids teased about the cider vinegar, so I’m trying to get the outside the vinegar in in a different form in a capsule form, so I’m trying to do good right and the other thing I use from that area is super beet complex.

I take that every day as well. For me, I use the nature’s bounty, hair, skin and nails. I’ve been using that for about six months and definitely notice the difference. Yeah, you are having some trouble of hair loss in the beginning. I think right yeah. However, I find out now that it’s pretty menopause causing the hair loss, not Kido – oh geez, sorry, but it does help your hair skin and nails alright, but it does okay, a few staples that we have that I used almost every time I do any baking is Parchment paper are usually yeah, can’t have enough parchment paper, it’s great.

So, when you’re rolling out the dough’s yeah, it’s not sticking to your rolling. Pin it’s not sticking to your hands. That’s sticking to the counter! It comes right off when you’re done baking. I’ve even used it to make bacon yeah deep, well sheet. Aluminum, foil is also something that we keep on hand it’s great when you have to let something set up, and we want to cover it when you put it in the refrigerator, and it’s also really nice to store things with as well.

Yep. Their foil is thicker. Next, on my list are the vinyl gloves bill makes fun. I don’t like to touch raw meat so, but he’s the final whoops and it works well for me, are you sold now read means I don’t like to touch the meat, it’s a texture thing, but I will tell you garbage bags. We go through a ton, more garbage bags because we’re cooking all fresh now, cooking at home and cookie, more real foods, yeah yeah, definitely stead throwing on a McDonald’s bag, we’re making all this food and then all the waste of that food or the XS or the Skins or whatever all goes in the garbage, absolutely there must have yeah, and I like that.

Garbage bag safer, archaeans well and we just go through so many of them and they were so economical compared to just going and buying a smaller package or get ripped off with us at the store. She knows that’s one of the reasons I do love Kasich. Oh, hey, it’s flu season, guys and also everybody’s all worked up about this coronavirus stuff too, but basically it is flu season. Don’t forget that? Yes, so we go through a lot of tissue in this house with the kids and everything and then when Lauren comes home she takes some tissue back to the dorms.

I think she feeds everybody else to eat it, but we do go through a lot, so we buy in bulk at Costco. We use the heck out of it and I really like it. Yeah Clorox wipes goes right along with that we’re always sanitized and everything whitening things down doorknobs. When Julie comes home from school, I cringed to think of all the things that she’s touched along the way, and I want her to wash her hands when she comes home from school.

I know that might be a little crazy, but then I grab a clerics clock and I’m getting the door knobs and anything else is she talks before she came in okay, just because I’m kind of weird like that and don’t forget to wake your fridge handles the Last two things on the list for today are not Kido but definitely staples in the household we use everybody’s advice, household, the tide and UNSTOPABLES cuz you’ve got us no good yeah.

You got ta smell, good and here’s the thing you get more for your money, more volume for the price, I believe at least at Cosmo. So when we do know, we pick up the tide, we pick up the downy or the fabric sheets. So that’s the majority of the things that we buy when we go to Costco. Hopefully you got some new ideas. You know we did quite a few items here on these last three trips that we shared with you guys.

So maybe in the comments below, let us know what your favorite things from Costco are. If we didn’t cover one of them, let us know, because I’d like to look for it and start using it, possibly absolutely yeah. So that’s how we all learn. So thanks for joining us and keep it keto, you
