What’s Cookin’!

As my energy slowly returns and I feel more and more like my old self, I’ve started handling more of the household chores that Jeffrey has been handling on his own while I’ve been feeling under the weather.

I’m happiest about getting back into the kitchen and cooking again. It is very hard to stick to any kind of healthy eating when you’re relying on processed and prepackaged foods.

In the last few days, I’ve made Shrimp Alfredo, Turkey Meatloaf with roasted veggies, and Chicken Avocado wraps – all gluten free and low carb.

Chicken avocado wraps….mmm mmm good!

I purchased a new Keto cookbook, to increase my low carb meal repertoire.

I am excited to try new and different recipes as we continue to work on eating healthier and feeling better. But we do love food, so the challenge is to find ways to make all the stuff we love eating, but in a healthier way.

(If anyone knows a recipe for low carb peanut butter and fluff sandwiches, let me know.)

  1. My understanding is that all-natural peanut butter is relatively low carb, so that is one-third the ingredients. As a GF ninja I am sure you have found some appropriate bread substitute, so all you need is the fluff. Unfortunately, I am guessing the answer is going to be something gross with egg whites. I know that vegans use aquafaba (chick pea water) to make meringues, so there might be hope for something marshmallowy there?

    • I have spent three years trying to avoid the damn thing, I’m not going to stop now.

      Most peanut butter has extra sugar so you have to be careful. But yes you can get low carb PB (or make it) and even low carb bread. There is no acceptable substitute for fluff.

  2. Peanut butter – make your own? You only need to grind it down and nuts are a natural low carb food. It’s all the crap they put in it makes it stodge. Will keep a few days.
    But I have to say – anything “sandwich” sounds ominous! Bread is essentially the devil incarnate. I go to bed and dream of sourdough.

  3. Tommy loves wraps and makes one almost every day for lunch. Me, not so much, just eating the innards with a fork. I need a keto cookbook. Let us know if this is a good one.
