I’m getting a little tired of eating butter. It’s great pouring it all over all my meals but when I’m just having butter in coffee or just as butter chips I don’t feel any great joy. I also find that I have more of a habit of eating butter on work days than I do on weekends where I’m definitely not as disciplined about my fat intake. However, last night I decided to make my first avocado milkshake. Blended with ice, avocado and milk this is definitely a nice little fat bomb to keep me satiated at night and even better for a kickstart in the morning.
I’m really coming from a period of my life which is basically all of it up until now where I have loathed spending time on cooking because I’ve always felt there were better things to do. I thought eating out was saving me a ton of a time from having to grocery shop, prep and cook and then clean. In reality, I’m finding that the whole experience has been really satisfying unlike any of the other times I’ve attempted cooking consistently. And I think that a big part of this has been that I don’t need to worry about that side portion that I used to eat that was heavy on the carbs or starch like rice and potatoes. Taking that out of the equation has made cooking just so fast and easy for me that it’s more efficient for me to cook than it is to go out and look for food.
I wonder if the Ketogenic Diet has also lead many other people to start preparing their food at home.
Just for fun: I stumbled across an article about worsening levels of Blood Glucose in American Adults. I’m not sure how long I’ll be doing Keto for but at least I know what I can do about blood glucose and not be included in these statistics.
