Keto Friendly Lunch | Egg Salad & Baby Spinach

Need an easy lunch idea?! Look no further! You can make this as is or adjust to add some of your favorites. This is easy and simple to make at home or prep before hand and bring to work with you.

Ideas to Add

You can add crumbed bacon, some cherry tomatoes, avocado, or whatever other favorites you may have. In this recipe I do use a wrap made by Low In Carb. This particular wrap has 8 net carbs which can be a lot for some people, depending on the rest of your day and how strict you are with the ketogenic way of eating. So an easy option is to skip the wrap and add more spinach!

What I Used

  • 1 Honey Wheat Low In Carb Wrap
  • 2 Hard Boiled Eggs
  • 1/2 C Baby Spinach
  • 1 TB Mayo Made With Olive Oil
  • 1 TB Olive Oil
  • Salt, Pepper, & Garlic Powder
  • *or add Everything But the Bagel Seasoning: https://amzn.to/2V1nB4h

How to Prep for Beginning Keto

I don’t know about you but any time I get interested in something I research the TON out of it. I watch youtube videos, read articles, find books, and ask questions to every person I know that has information about the topic. So, I learn.

When I first heard about the ketogenic way of eating I did the exact same thing before I began. Now, a year later I made a video of the essentials to have on hand when beginning this lifestyle. It’s a very short list but it really is the basics as to what I needed and what I know has helped both me and the community of others that I’ve gone through the past year with.

So, when prepping to begin keto what are some MUST HAVES to have on hand and in your home?

  1. MACRO & Food Logging App // I recommend Carb Manager. Here’s a video on how to use it: How to Use the Carb Manager App
  2. Vitamins & Electrolyte Tablets
  3. Oils & Healthy Fats
  4. Exogenous Ketones // Only use the best! It’s an investment into your health & body. Here’s a link to my fave: Exogenous Ketones

A Full Day of Eating Keto (vlog)

What do people who follow a ketogenic lifestyle actually eat all day? I had that question when I was researching and considering trying this for myself.

Since then, I’ve made multiple vlogs documenting normal days of eating keto. Sometimes I plan the day before what my meals will be, this was not one of those times.

Check out this day in my life where I ended up going out to lunch, forgot to do all the things I wanted to do, and still managed to end the day with near perfect macros!

January Ketone Experience

 

It’s time for a special ketone experience to kick off 2019! It’s been awhile since I’ve put together a special experience pack but what better time to launch one than the beginning of a new year?

This time last year I had no idea that how I was feeling could easily be altered. How was I feeling? I was feeling tired. All. The. Time. Seriously, I needed constant naps and was always fighting exhaustion. I was feeling heavy. I guess bloated would be a good way to describe it? Just heavy and lousy and not like myself. My clothes weren’t fitting the way I liked, my skin wasn’t doing that great, and overall I just wasn’t happy with how I felt.

Then I saw a Facebook post from my sister in law. She introduced me to ketones (a drink that supplies your body with ketones & puts you into ketosis) and a different lifestyle that I just gravitated towards. I did all the research. I watched all the videos. I read all the articles. I learned quickly and dove right in. Now a year later I can say I am SO glad that I did!

In addition to losing 40lbs (and KEEPING IT OFF!), the exhaustion has gone away. I don’t need that afternoon nap or the 5 cups of coffee. Don’t get me wrong I still love my coffee, but it doesn’t drive me anymore. I’ve kicked bad habits, created better cravings, and was able to buy new jeans.

The science behind exogenous ketones makes total sense to me. The science behind a ketogenic way of eating makes total sense to me. When I put them together it was like magic. Over 2018 I did not stay in a strict keto way of eating. I slowly added back in items  that I love, like pastas, potatoes, and pizza. Yet, I’ve been able to maintain because of a few things; altered eating habits, use of ketones & keto kreme, and periodic intermittent fasting.

So, yes, I want to share all of this with you because I’ve experienced it. I know it works. I know the changes are worth it. I’ve put together a special experience pack this month for those of you who are looking to try something new that could very well change your year like it did mine in 2018.
