When I took the first bite, I nearly cried. My eyes closed, I was transported to my Grandmother’s kitchen just as it was when it was overwhelmed by Christmas baking and cooking. It was G who pulled me back in time as she said, “Mom, is it wrong that I’m really glad that Dad doesn’t like coconut?! I really don’t want to share this!” We savored that cake, each being considerate of the other and only having a few bites over several days. As I offered her the last crumbs, she said, “This. Mom, THIS cake is what I want for my birthday.”
One of the BEST parts about living keto for me is living keto with others! I love eating keto, talking keto, teaching keto, and preaching keto. It’s what I do!
As we move into week 4, our final week of the 28-day guide, the menu remains simple with foods that are likely to already be in your pantry. Many of the recipes on this menu guide can be made in 30 minutes or less, which is really important to me as a working mom with a very busy family.
I hope that you are enjoying these meal plans and that you, too, are learning how to make keto sustainable and delicious!
If you’re following along on the 28-day guide in Keto Living Day by Day, we’re starting week 2 on Monday! The first week has been GREAT fun, and I love the progress that folks have made so far. Now, I know that it’s a holiday week, so you may need to adjust this menu to fit your celebration plans.
Meal planning may or may not excite you. If it doesn’t it, I understand, and I won’t hold it against you; however, if you like having a guide to meals that are truly low carb (or ketogenic), then I think you’ll like this.
But WAIT! What if I’m traveling? What if I HATE broccoli? What if I’m only cooking for 1 or 2, instead of a big family? What if……
What can you accomplish in 28 days?
Many of the best measures of success are changes in the way we think about food, when we eat, and why we eat.
Notice that I can eat a lot of delicious foods! Some were foods that I ate previously while some foods I was able to add because I was no longer eating low fat (bacon and butter, yes please!).
