    Thanks, Joe!
    And I agree -- it has amazing benefits! Drinking some in my water right now!

    Suuuuper boring, I know. I have been having pretty much the same meal for the past few days in different iterations. When I am up for more solid meals, there will be a lot more variety. For now, these meals are definitely convenient for my busy schedule, and they have been providing some comfort. I may end up having soup for the rest of the month just for the sake of time, but the batch I will eventually make will be vegan. Today's meal was Caribbean chicken soup, an orange, and a GoMacro bar. I am trying to replace my daily sweet with a protein or whole food bar to both appease my sweet tooth and provide some added nutrition that I won't get from inhaling a pint of ice cream (though I do LOVE ice cream!). The extra protein definitely tides me over a lot longer, though, and I picked up a few more to eat for the rest of the week.

    Thank you so much for the vibes! And I also LOVE kisses. I love chocolate in general actually... I am always trying to find a way to eat it! :)

    It's hot here, so it's a bit odd to eat even though it is technically "winter." But I actually really love soup, and it would be SO easy to just make a big batch at the beginning of the week to reheat and eat everyday. I'm so busy right now with school and research, and it's definitely a good way to make sure I get my veggies in. I have some leftover cabbage soup that I froze a little while back that I will have tomorrow, and I am thinking I will make a vegan sausage and corn chowder next!

    It seems like it's getting a bit better, so fingers crossed!
    I am one of those weird people that actually loves the taste :D.

    Same meal, different day! Chicken and wild rice soup, water with ACV, kiwi, 2 strawberries (not pictured), a Brazil nut for selenium, and a Dang chocolate sea salt protein bar (which was NOT pleasant, unfortunately).
  • mistymeadows2005mistymeadows2005 Posts: 2,245Member Member Posts: 2,245Member Member
    AW MAN! That bar looked good, bummer that it sucked! Mental note made - kiwi and strawberries both sound AWESOME though!
  • jadepearljadepearl Posts: 563Member Member Posts: 563Member Member
    Dang bar? Haven't tried that before. Don't think I can find any here in Down Under. What's in it? Caramel? Honeycomb? I love chocolates too <3
  • volgirl1322volgirl1322 Posts: 834Member Member Posts: 834Member Member
    Sad on the dang bar...….I have fallen in love with the Kind Bars.....they are yum.....made with fruit/nuts/all varieties of chocolate the dark chocolate/sea salt are the BEST!

    Hi everyone! Sorry I have been ghost. I have been improving and with that, I was straight up ravenous over the past couple of days and fell way off track. I'm going to be back to posting tomorrow.
    My new plan is to get back to keto tomorrow but to do so as an ovo vegetarian. I know keto has always been best for me and my body, but vegan keto was too restrictive or too expensive for my budget. I would still like to avoid dairy and meat however, so my protein will be coming from eggs and probably the occasional Beyond meat burger (which I love!). Looking forward to getting back on track and being established in my habits in time for Microscope March!

    I couldn't go without dairy because I love cheese way too much but I can eat eggs for days!!! Good luck :)

    I also love cheese, but dairy always causes excess mucus for me among other problems.
    I LOVE and have always loved eggs, and my partner makes amazing scrambled eggs, so I am very excited at being able to eat together again when I spend weekends there.

    Dang is a brand that I love because they make really yummy coconut chips. I didn't save the wrapper, so I don't remember exactly what's in it besides pea protein, but it was NOT good. It definitely doesn't have caramel and honeycomb because I think it's marketed as a keto product. Also I LOVE caramel. I love caramel more than chocolate actually. If there was caramel in it, I would've loved it probably :D

    I used to eat Kind bars all the time! If I remember correctly, none of the chocolate ones (the ones I wanted!) were soy-free, so I stopped eating them when I started avoiding soy. They are really delicious, though!

    I'm using the Carb Manager app to track during my first couple of weeks back on keto since I have never done so as an ovo veg. I'm actually really happy that I did, because I vastly underestimated how much fat I needed to add since I'm not eating bacon or other fatty meats like I did in the past. My limit is 19g total carbs per day, but I hit 20g with the addition of some Haitian pickled cabbage that I added on top of my eggs (not pictured). This was a reeeeeallllly yummy meal, so I will probably have it again tomorrow with either slightly less shallots in my eggs or less pickled cabbage, especially because I pretty much hit my goal macros exactly.

    Welcome back darling! Happy you've got a new plan to put a little pep in your step!
  • futuredrbrifuturedrbri Posts: 147Member Member Posts: 147Member Member
    Thanks, ladies! So far so good (though it's only day 2!). I am hungrier earlier today than yesterday, which makes sense given the fact I was coming off a very full Saturday, but I am trying to wait it out until around 5 because I am working and I want to be more consistent with mealtimes. I am not even close to starving, so 2 hours should be a breeze.
