I have taken a year off from Friendly Food accidentally and I have missed my friends here! I realize my last post was a week shy of a year ago and I cannot believe how much had changed!
In July 2018, I switched to a keto diet, focusing on high fat meats and greens mostly (and cheese of course…I cannot live without cheese) With hours and hours of research under my belt, I was able to come up with super simple meal plans every week and eat like a Queen without even missing grains and sugars. My husband never even complained!
I have seen a lot of people switch to keto for weight loss and I have to say, it really does work. I lost 30 pounds in my first 3-4 months and I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t switch to keto to lose weight but for stabilizing my anxiety and focus (which keto absolutely helped me) but the weight loss was a great side effect.
I have slowly started adding in high fibre carbs back into my diet like sweet potatoes and black beans in moderation, but I am not sure yet if they are giving me desired results and may cut them out again. Figuring out the best diet for you is a process and everyone is totally different.
To me, simplicity is key. Keto is a popular (fad) diet and of course corporate will take advantage of that. You can eat a successful diet without all those hyped up ingredients, so remember that you don’t have to buy expensive products to see results, no matter what you read.
So long story short, I am back to my recipes on Friendly Food now that Spring is finally here! If any of my friends and followers are eating keto and have good recipes, please share!
