today I rocked a keto chocolate souffle with freshly whipped cream- AND 2 NET CARBS! It tastes like a lava cake married a sponge cake… or a British steamed pudding.
Jess’ Keto Chocolate Souffle
- 2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder OR raw cacao powder
- 2-3 tbs powdered erythritol or sweetener of your choice
- 2 tbs heavy cream
- 1 tbs melted butter
- 1 egg
- 1/4th tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4th-1/2 tsp baking soda
Mix everything well-
Grease ramekin or coffee mug and microwave 1-2 minutes-
Plate with freshly whipped cream.
SOOOO GOOD and sooo easy!
Yesterday, we made mozzarella stuffed meatballs with low carb Marinara- and chocolate keto mug cakes with freshly whipped cream- they were a huge hit!
If anyone is interested in the recipes, post below and I will type them out after I recover from bronchitis.
Down another half pound since Monday morning- 161 lbs or about 3 lbs lost of cheat day weight (half)
11 lbs gone in 16 DAYS- down from 14 lbs in 12 days
Wearing my 26 yr old junior college sweatshirt and it fits!
It’s been a very stressful week. My 3 yr old is sick again with croup, my mother was just moved into assisted living, and other things like stress eating and exercise.
Trying to get my very overweight 19 yr old son with Aspergers into keto and yoga with me- very worried about his health. He is 5’10 and 276 now. Today will be his first day.
I am 1.5 lbs down from the 5.5-5 lbs I gained after Sunday. I won’t lie, I am a bit disappointed. I weighed in at 162, took 1/4 pack of the ketone drink with my favorite black Organo coffee with ganoderma reishi mushrooms, and went on with my day… which was almost entirely without power/electricity due to a tree falling on power lines 1/2 a mile from my house last night.
We didn’t get our power back until 4 pm today.
It is starting to get chilly outdoors (30s/40s), so temps in my house dipped below 60F most of last night and today. It wasn’t fun, since I currently have a toddler who is sick with croup and fever (again).
I have been rather strict with my keto diet since yesterday. Today’s meal was my favorite standby of roasted beef marrow bones with avocado halves and a salad of arugula, capers, shallots, lemon, and olive oil.
I am hoping tomorrow’s scale is better… but I kind of overate the keto foods tonight at the last minute… even though I have over an hour of cardio in, some weighted hula hooping, and over 19k steps per fitbit today.
It’s been such a stressful week! I need to keep moving to save my sanity!
Went to a friend’s dad’s beautiful horse farm for a lovely house party and cheated on keto
I AM IN SHOCK!!! I haven’t hit below 160 since my avocado accident in December!!
There is absolutely no way to make Lularoe leggings look flattering on me, but I am down 12 pounds in 11 days!
I am only 5’4 and a half, maybe, so I am not a tall, lithe person. I am extremely muscular and moderately active at the moment. I have not had the time I usually have to do yoga or get more than 10-12k fitbit steps in lately, so this is mostly from the keto diet and the ketone drink I started drinking less than 2 weeks ago. The drink helped me over the plateau weight I’ve been hovering at for a year.
A little peek into our day, before trick or treat- it was 35F here in SW Michigan- absolutely freeeeeezing (1-2C for the rest of you).
We rushed to get candy for the manny in the house to dole out while we took the girl into the cold.
I had exactly 35 minutes to decide what to dress up as- and accidentally turned into a Zombie Kardashian- or a Game of Thrones greyscale Kardashian– still not sure which.
Maisie dressed as a brown haired Elsa… she was over the moon. Below is a pic with her brother- who is dressed as a sort of emo Waldo who doesn’t wish to be found- but will still take your candy-
I did, however, successfully stay keto and stayed out of the sweets today- so hurray for me!
