This has become a favourite of mine just recently as I LOVE brussel sprouts! But you could do it with broccoli and cauliflower easy too!
Chopped mushrooms & brussel sprouts in cream and cheese. I’ve added a small amount of xanthum gum but too much results in slimyness that I don’t enjoy! Usually this would accompany a protein for a meal but today I simply ate it as a snack!
I’ve been nomming on these fudgy choc fat bombs this week! Recipe probably still needs some tweaking but for those if you who want to give it a go!
50g dark choc (85% or higher)
100g cream cheese at room temp
75g peanut butter
5 tbsp coconut oil
Melt all ingredients together in a bowl over boiling water in a pot (you can do this in the microwave but I find this is the best way to get the cream cheese smoother)
Divide into moulds- mine made 5 at about 340cals each.
Set in the freezer but before eating sit at room temp for a few minutes or store in the fridge.
It’s almost like fudge 🤤😍
Tonight’s yummy dinner!
Grilled salmon with siracha sauce and lemon.
Brussel sprouts and mushrooms in a creamy, cheesy sauce!
Tonight I added xanthum gum for the first time to thicken the sauce. I didn’t love it but I also think I used too much. It certainly made it more sauce like but also a bit slimy like jelly... any advice?
Sunday’s are for recovery and rest! On occasion that also means being pretty lazy!
Yesterday we had an afternoon in bed with Netflix and I made myself up this little snack plate to munch on while we got through a few movies!
90% dark choc
Sugarfree white choc
Kind of a boring shop today- didn’t need to get very much but I’m just trying to keep it simple this week too!
Salmon, brussel sprouts, cream cheese, peanut butter, streaky bacon, dark choc, mushrooms, cream & almond milk.
I’m a creature of comfort from time to time and rarely stray from my favourite brands and meals!
Soooo last week I was so busy and in such a bad place mentally that I havnt posted anything since Tuesday! 😱
Many apologies but after a big weekend followed by usual working week, not much sleep and visitors staying from Wednesday night I had little room in my poor little brain to do much else but get through the days!
Anyway, I’m back on board! So you can expect to be hearing and seeing more from me again this week!
This was our Sunday bunch today! No I didn’t get through all of the plate but I definitely tried!
Avocado, haloumi, beef sausage, bacon, creamy garlic mushrooms & onion, and eggs 👍🏼👍🏼
Over the weekend we were lucky enough to find this sugarfree hazelnut gelato! Super yummy although I’m not 100% sure what kind of sweeteners were used in the making... I was willing to risk it though because it was gooood!
Stiff legged deadlifts to finish my back workout!
I didn’t feel quite finished and I knew these would burn out my hamstrings and back fairly quickly!
I just did sets of 10-8-6-4 making it heavier each time finishing on 50kg 💪🏼
Flashback to when I made these choc coated peanut butter cheesecake bites!
I had to never make them again because I just wanted to eat them all the time 😂
I’ll have to test the recipe again but I think the ingredients were cream cheese, cream & peanut butter blended and covered with 90% choc and coconut oil melted. Mmmmm delish!
Afternoon tea with fat bombs & coffee are my fav!
These are like a choc cheesecake fat bombs but I need to perfect the recipe before I share! My cream cheese is always lumpy 🤷🏼♀️
What’s your favourite fat bomb?!
This dinner was stellar! 😍 so much flavour!
Crumbed salmon & creamy, cheesy Brussels!
I got the inspiration for the salmon from an insta post that sadly I did not save and can’t remember who posted it!
I just pan fried the Brussel sprouts in butter and salt before adding cream and mozzarella right at the end.
Tried egg loaf using @keto.sam.iam recipe today and I loved it! It did remind me of French Toast, especially with the sugar free maple syrup!
However, a few things went wrong here!
I was a bit lazy with my mixing and still had a few lumps of cream cheese in the mixture- it didn’t seem to make much difference except maybe the mixture wasn’t combined enough to work? Because they came out hollow!
I used a muffin tin because I need a smaller loaf tin and the mixture stuck to my patty cases a little so hopefully baking paper will work better once I get a better tin!
It still tasted amazing though! And I’ll definitely be making it again!
Sooo I may have had 2 ‘free’ days this weekend... oopsie!
But it really doesn’t matter because it was still all Keto and probably gave my body a refeed on all the things I might have been lacking recently.
I also felt fairly controlled most weekend with the exception of our fathead pizzas tonight which definitely would of put me over in calories. But I’m headed in for a heavy legs session at the gym tomorrow morning so I know the fuel will be put to good use!
My amazing breakfast today! Pancakes with crispy bacon, haloumi & burnt butter syrup 😍 I just halved my previous pancake recipe to make 2. The syrup is just heating butter & sweetener in a pan until browned and slightly thicker 🤤
Heading out to watch the footy & have Indian dinner(hold the rice & naan please) with my man @bjonesyboy ❤️
