Happy Thursday fellow readers! The week has sailed by with only a few bumps along the way. Today I want to talk to you about my go to keto meal.
When you embark on your keto journey there are tons and tons of recipes, recipe blogs, cook books and so much more. In all honesty it can be overwhelming. I spent weeks flipping through books before I ever bought a recipe book. If I am going to invest in a cookbook I want two things: 1) Recipes that I will eat. 2)Recipes that are simple. I love to cook but I don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen to feed me or my family.
I also don’t see the point of trying to put together a recipe that has an ingredient list a mile long, or ingredients that I have to google to figure out. Keto is supposed to be simple and whole foods, not complicated chaos. So what is my favorite meal? Steak…sweet and simple!
I can easily make a steak topped with some butter and mushrooms, and bacon wrapped asparagus every single night and be content. I can cook the steak different ways to mix it up and I can even saute the asparagus with bacon if I don’t want to wrap it. I can get a great macro base from this meal and I walk away satiated and happy. I have learned how to grill, pan sear, bake and reverse steaks in the past year and they each have a unique flavor depending on the preparation and the cut of meat. I prefer ribeye as it has a near perfect ration of protein to fat, but I usually acquire whatever is on sale. So my favorite meal is simple, east to prepare, and keeps me full. That in my mind is the perfect keto meal.
Now with that being said there are recipes that are more complicated that I enjoy out there, but I try to keep it simple at all cost. I use to need variety and now I’m okay with the same thing day in and day out. I have learned what makes my body happy and I give it what it wants. Just remember you don’t need fancy ingredients and complicated recipes to be Keto, you just need real whole food and some basics. Until Next Time….Keep Ketoing On!
