So keto

A few of my friends and family members have been on keto diets with great results, not just losing weight but lowering blood pressure, lower inflammation levels, clearer skin, etc, etc. So I decided to try it, not that I feel I needed to lose weight but for the other health benefits. The idea is to not eat anything with carbohydrates, this includes fruit and a lot of vegetables. More important, nothing with grains. Bread, pasta, rice, potatoes . . . nope, nope, nope, nope. And in fact, the idea is to replace the carbohydrates with fat. Bacon fat, butter, olive oil. This seems counterintuitive but, you know, I didn’t invent this, it is what it is. Non-believers can take a stroll through the internet, the provider of all things true, and find out for themselves.

This was the first meal I made. Shredded chicken, 3 cups of shredded cheese mixed together with an egg. Fried in butter. They are kinda like heavy duty pancakes and were quite good. Like I’d serve that to guests. I ate it with salsa and yogurt. The picture isn’t exactly appetizing but it was good.
