Low Carb Veggie Burger! 

I know you can have burgers without the bun or with lettuce, but I was feeling bitchy and wanted bread. 

This is a grilled Morningstar veggie burger with cheese and mustard on a Village Hearth Light bun which is 13g net carb but beforehand I cut away over 1/3 of it so it’s probably closer to 8g. I then toasted the bun and buttered it! 

11g net carb total. Good for when you have leftover carbs to eat up!

UGHHH cheat day nightmare…

Boyfriend and I went to the cabin yesterday and decided to have a cheat meal since I’ve basically been stalling for a month now (grrr…)

Ate keto most of the day, but for lunch we went to a Mexican restaurant, I couldn’t even finish 1/2 of my food since my body can’t process carbs anymore, so I didn’t think it was that bad, but we also split a small bag of salt water taffy. Had a headache all day but whatevz.

Now, I’ve had worse cheat days, but SWEET SATAN, I woke up at 3 am with THE WORST SPINS, I literally stood up, fell right into my dresser, tried to stand up again, tumbled to the floor, and crawled my sweaty ass to the bathroom and cried.

I haven’t had vertigo like this since I was an idiot 17 year old and accidentally scarfed down some pot brownies… CARBS ARE THE F*CKING WORST.

String Cheese Chips!

Cut 1 low-moisture string cheese stick into 12 pieces, and put 1 piece in each section of a mini muffin tin. Bake until they look burnt! If you undercook them they’ll have a little bit of chewiness to them.

These are amazing, I actually prefer them to the low-carb tortilla chips because they have a good dense crunch!

I dipped mine in Target’s Archer Farms Queso (2g net carb for queso)

These chips are 0g carbs!! :)

Did they stick to the pan!?

Not at all! I had a non-stick muffin pan and these slid right out with no effort! I think the grease from the cheese helps!

Anonymous said: How did you seek out help for your ED? How did they diagnose you?

The first step for recovery or a diagnosis is going to a specific ED clinic/ therapist. My ED recovery has been almost 10 years in the making… Started around 13 and by the time I was 16 I was severely anorexic and had to do in/out-patient treatment at an ED specialized clinic. After spending my 17th birthday in the hospital, I decided to take my recovery seriously. I worked hard for a few months, then relapsed after going through some trauma.

I was a total mess and from there on it was a mixture of binging and restricting, drugs and alcohol… During my freshman year of college I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (pain disorder) and after that, everything changed.

I didn’t have the desire or the ability to restrict. I was in so much pain that the only thing that made me feel good, even for a minute, was food. I became addicted, and after years of anorexia, I ironically developed a binge/ compulsive overeating disorder.

The last 4 years have been difficult. I had gained over 50lbs, but I’ve started respecting myself enough to change, and I’ve lost 30 so far! I did outpatient treatment at a clinic again for binge eating (which they take just as seriously as Ana or Mia btw), was diagnosed as EDNOS, and things have gotten better. It takes time, patience, support, and a desire for change, but I like to think that I’m mostly recovered.

It’s up to you to heal yourself. My last round of treatment was completely my choice; I recognized that I needed help, I knew that happiness was an option, and I wanted to feel it again. Remind yourself everyday that you’re worth it :)

Cauliflower “Mac & Cheese”!

This was AMAZING! And my non-keto boyfriend even loved it (he added hot sauce too)

You need:

Baking dish
Cauliflower
Cream cheese
Velveeta (can use extra cream cheese)
Mustard
Garlic and onion powder
Salt and pepper
Shredded cheese
Grated Parmesan (powdery kind)

Start by steaming chopped cauliflower, and leave it in the colander to drain completely before putting it in your casserole dish.

The sauce I didn’t do exact measurements (as usual) but I did start by simmering 3/4 cup heavy cream, then added cream cheese and velveeta until it was semi-thick. Then I added a bit of mustard, some onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and white pepper, and added big pinches of shredded cheese until thick.

Put cauliflower and cheese sauce in baking dish, mix it up, and top with more shredded cheese and grated Parmesan.

Bake at 375 for about 20-25 min. Let cool for 5 min, and serve!

Anonymous said: Congrats on your weight loss! Mind if I ask how many calories a day you consume and do you count them at all?

Thank you so much! I honestly don’t count calories; I’d say 1300-1600 on days I don’t work out, and 1500-2000 on days I do. I do HIIT 5 or 6 days a week so I’m burning a lot of calories, and I actually have worse results with weight loss when I’m at too much of a calorie deficit. So don’t go too low, just focus on eating right :)

Anonymous said: Hello, I've been on Keto for 2/12 months now and for the first 2 months I had quite an easy time losing 14 pounds. But for the last 2 weeks I have been stuck at the same weight. I've been drinking tons of water, working out 3-4 times a week and making sure my macros are correct. What is your advice to someone who is stuck?

Oh man I am right there with you. Last month I lost 17 pounds. SEVENTEEN FREAKING POUNDS!!! This month? I have lost (drumroll please) …………

………2. Two pounds. Kill me. I’m not sure if I’m stalling or if it’s because I’m doing HIIT 6 days a week, but I do think I’m seeing a difference in my body even despite the scale.

Do you do measurements/ see any slight changes in your body? Clothes fitting differently, less cellulite, things like that? If you’re working out 3-4 days a week, your body will retain some water to heal your muscles, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t losing fat.

The best advice I can give you (and I’m trying to convince myself the exact same thing as I write it) is to be patient, do NOT give up on keto and go back to old carby habits, that won’t make things any better.

Try taking body measurements instead of weigh-ins. And be aware that sometimes you’ll “grow” inches as you build muscle too, but just keep looking for those little clues that prove that you’re looking or feeling healthier. I notice my cheekbones are more defined, my cellulite is like 60% better, my shorts don’t constrict my thighs anymore, even though the scale hasn’t budged. Stuff like that :)

I was VERY determined to stay Keto at a wedding last night! 

The vegetarian option was this awesome Roasted Veggie Tower! I stayed away from the cake and champagne completely, but my ride was drinking a little too much so I drank the rest of her third glass of wine while she wasn’t looking….

Small glass of red wine, and I’m up a whole pound :(  better than dying in a car accident I guess…

LOW CARB Quesadilla!

1 Mission Carb Balance tortilla folded and filled with shredded cheese and sour cream, pan fried, with a side of sour cream and Tapatillo hot sauce mixed to dip it in! 

I like to make these when I’m too lazy to really cook.
