A few of you have messaged me and asked me what meals I have throughout the day whilst doing the keto diet so I thought I’d share a typical day on my plate keto style. I try really hard to stay under 24 grams of carbs every day. You can track this through an app like @carbmanagerapp. I do try to drink 3-5 glasses of water to stay hydrated and refreshed. I take magnesium;, turmeric, vitamin D, calcium, glucosamine, and apple cider vinegar supplements every day. I am not perfect by any means and have my bad days with my diet. I also like glass or 2 of wine on the weekend. I do a lot of baking using almond flour and coconut flour. There are so many yummy alternatives when you are doing the keto diet. I find a lot of my recipes online.
Here’s my typical day on a plate ⬇️
Breakfast – I start my day with a morning walk then I come home and have a huge glass of water followed by a coffee or 2 using almond milk. I typically don’t eat breakfast until about 9 or 10am. I usually either have a keto/ Paleo granola with Greek yogurt and other days I might have bacon and eggs. I have been known to slip breakfast but I don’t recommend it as you need the energy for the rest of the day.
Lunch- I sometimes eat scrambled eggs with avocado and mayo and on other days I ll have a sandwich using my homemade keto bread. I usually have a cup of tea too.
Dinner– I usually eat lean meats or fish and with those dishes, I will usually have low carb veggies or a salad. I also love cauliflower rice, broccoli rice, and Zoodles. I like to make stuffed capsicum with a chicken and cheese mushroom sauce filling once a week and it’s one of my fave meals.
That’s a day on my plate. Obviously, I change my meals up often to keep it interesting. I will be adding a recipe segment here on my blog soon. If you have any questions regarding keto then let me know and I will try my best to answer them
I want to to talk to you all today about some eBooks I wrote a couple of years ago
Around two years ago I wrote two digital books through KDP for Amazon. It was something I had wanted to do for a while but wasn’t sure I was capable of doing such a thing! Eventually, I plucked up the courage and I wrote my first books!
I decided to start a children’s book series called Finley’s adventures. I only wrote two books but had planned to write more, Life got busy and I guess I had forgotten about it all.
My confidence was also knocked when I received a negative comment about the grammar on one of the books. I think If were to write more digital books now I would take my time on them. When I wrote the eBooks I was so excited and just wanted to get them out there. I realize now that if you want something to do well then you need to take your time on it. I still think that what I wrote was pretty good and I am still proud of myself for writing them. I do want to write more books in the future and I’ve taken this experience as a learning curve! My writing has improved so much over the last 12 months since starting this blog. I am excited for the future and seeing where my writing will take me next! You can find my amazon books on the links below.
Today I have some exciting news to share with you all and if you are already following me on all my socials then you may already know what I am talking about!
I have re-launched my YouTube channel and have re-named it ‘this tribe of mine’ It used to have all my old singing g videos on there but I rarely used it. Most of my singing videos are on private now but I have left a few of them up. I am still op[en to doing more singing videos in the future.
My channel will have a variety of videos on there which will include vlogs, tips,tricks, advice, hauls, tutorials, reviews, collaborations. I will also be talking about what life is like as a family of 11. I will be keeping it real, raw and honest for you all. I am very excited for this new chapter and I hope you will all follow along this exciting journey with me.
