Everyday Eats: Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

Today was one of those days where I just wanted to eat all of the things.  I don’t know why, that just happens to me sometimes!  Maybe because I lifted yesterday?  Maybe I was just bored?

We woke up early for the sole purpose of me fixing breakfast before we had to drive up to Nashville for Canadian Bacon’s followup exam.  Last time we went, he was ravenous the whole way there and back – the doctor says that because of the surgery, his metabolic system or whatever is pretty much in overdrive from the trauma, trying to heal itself.  He has dropped a ton of weight and is eating large amounts of food to try to compensate.  He’s still eating all the keto meals I cook, but is adding in fruits and grains to increase his carb and calorie count while he heals.  I didn’t want him to be starving again this time, so I made a really large and fatty breakfast, and packed snacks for him too.

Anyway, I had a large breakfast – bigger than normal – and I was hungry mid-afternoon when Meemaw sent me to Burger King for herself, so I ordered something then too.  I wish I’d skipped lunch because I had a delicious dinner and I could only eat half of it!!  Still, I was slightly over on cals today.

Breakfast

Three eggs scrambled in butter, topped with cheddar; two local sausage patties; low carb toast with butter.

Went about 100 calories over my goal, so that’s not terrible considering I’m usually under.  Hit my carb limit – surprised I didn’t go over, honestly, considering I ate a serving of tortilla chips with my dinner.  Slightly under on protein, but at least it’s not a lifting day.  If I could do it over, I would skip lunch.  I don’t think I was truly hungry at that point, and maybe if I hadn’t eaten it I could have enjoyed the entirety of my dinner, rather than half of what you see pictured there!!

  1. I love that you pair your nutritional info with the food, makes it way easier to break down.

    Great seeing what you ate. I’ve heard great things about keto.
