How About Porridge?
I was searching (as usual) for a different yummy Keto breakfast option yesterday and found this great recipe for porridge by Martina Slajerova of the KetoDietApp.com website. Clicking the link will take you straight to the recipe and a video showing the directions to make this easy peasy treat. I found it warm, satisfying, and delicious!
No oats, just pecans, coconut and almond milk, nut butter-she uses almond but I used cashew-coconut oil, chia seeds, chopped pecans, toasted (or not) coconut, and cinnamon!
If you’re game for a new breakfast option and you get just a little tired of eggs on your Keto diet, this is a wonderfully filling choice. The recipe made two bowls and I ate about half of that and stayed full until lunch. Which I ate late. Which was more like a snack. I have been trying to do the intermittent fasting thing but can’t seem to actually skip the meal, I just eat a lot less. What I ended up having was a small bowl of salad and three leftover chicken wings Dave ordered with his Dominos pizza the other day.
I totally made up for it at supper, when I realized with horror that the delicious new Alfredo sauce I have been making and eating on my zoodles is not Keto! I tell you what though, I’m still gonna eat it, if only in small portions. 😉 I ate them alongside one of Dave’s delicious pork chops he dreamed up the other day, made in a sort of sauce piquante. I’m sure it wasn’t Keto either, but maybe everything else I’m doing will balance me out. (Zoodles are spiralized zucchini btw! 🙂 )
I hope you give this a try and let me know how you like it. PS: I downloaded the app Stupid Simple Keto (because it was free and the other app was $6.99) but I am still trying to figure it out. I at least figured out what my daily macros are supposed to be- if I’m doing it right I’m supposed to aim for 12g of carbs, 76g of protein, and 83g of fat per day.
Have a great day everyone and try to keep warm!
