I am so proud of myself! Granted, we still have tomorrow, but we stuck to the meal plan with the exception of ONE NIGHT ONLY! On Thursday, I’d had a pretty bad/stressful day and I asked Kalen if we could run to Michael’s so I could get some spring greenery. He hates to shop, but even so he said he’d go with me (I hate to shop alone), and then he suggested that we get wings for dinner (dude knows the way to my heart 10 years later). So, we picked up some wings (they were on special that night), and some green bean fries, and ate at home. We have tried to make it a “rule” that we don’t eat out more than once a week, so I think we are doing well.
I’m early this week, I know, but there’s just so much stuff to get done that I figured I’d go ahead and post now while I have a spare moment. Once this is done, it’s onto finishing up task two for my Business Communication course (task one was already submitted and accepted), reading (remember, balance), and writing. I also need to plan tomorrow, and one of my goals for 2019 (post coming soon-ish) is to find a Bible reading plan, and I think I’ve found one! I will need to catch up, but I discovered this through a friend of mine and it’s intriguing. I’ll post more on it later, too.
Onto the food for next week!I’m using two different keto cookbooks for these recipes. We have The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook: Low-Carb, High-Fat Recipes for Busy People on the Keto Diet and 30 Minute Ketogenic Cooking: 50+ Mouthwatering Low-Carb Recipes to Save You Time and Money. Those are both affiliate links, fyi. It costs you nothing to use the link, but I get a little kickback if you do.

Jan. 20: Steak (probably sous vide then seared), carrots, and salad.
We only had to buy produce for these dinners as we have the meat and other ingredients already. I’m so thankful for Aldi’s produce – their so much cheaper than other stores, and if they weren’t or we didn’t have one nearby, we’d be eating a lot of canned/frozen stuff. I don’t mind either option, but I prefer fresh over them. I can’t wait until it’s summer and can grow some of our own again.
