I haven’t done an update in a while.. I have officially been doing the keto diet now for 2 years and it’s been quite the journey. Over this period of time I have lost 33 kilos and im really proud of myself.
About 8-10 weeks after my 9th child was born, I was an unhealthy 107 kilos and I knew I had to start looking after my health so that I could be the best version of me, not only for myself, but for my family too.
I can tell you straight up that when you first start keto it’s really really hard but it’s also really worth it too. You just have to stick with it! Don’t give up! 💪
As a mum of 9 under 13 this has been the only diet that has worked for me and I’ve seen huge result’s! My life has completely changed because of it!
Over the last 2 years my whole mindset on food has completely changed which I’m truly thankful for. One of the great things about keto is that there is so many yummy and low carb alternatives to the foods your already eating. You just need to get creative! You can do drive so much resources and recipes online too.
In terms of exercise, I try to run 3x a week but I’m also considering doing some weight training too.
Now if I’m honest, in the last year I haven’t lost any more weight, if anything, I fluctuate between 75 -80 kilos. Maybe it’s because I’m not as strict as I used to be? – However, I still need to lose at least another 10 kilos to reach my weightless goal. I’m still on my journey and I hope to have reached my weightloss goal by September. I know I can do it, I just have to keep pushing through.
Thankyou for your ongoing support over the last 2 years!
Ever since I have been on my keto weight loss journey I have been looking for healthier food alternatives that still tastes just as good as the ones that are higher carbohydrates. Today I am giving you my version of the keto bread recipe.
1 tbsp of white chia seeds – these are for sprinkling on top of your bread before it goes in the oven
2 tsp cider vinegar
1 cup boiling water
3 egg whites
2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional) – I like to use half a cup of paleo mix for an extra nutty and crunchy taste
Instructions for the keto bread recipe are as follows;
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Bring the water to a boil and add it, the vinegar and egg whites to the bowl, while beating with a hand mixer for about 30 seconds. Don’t over mix the dough, the consistency should resemble Play-Doh.
place the mixture in a loaf tray and make it as flat as possible – if you want to make rolls instead then moisten hands and make 6 small round pieces of the dough. Place them on a greased baking sheet. Before you place your bread in the oven sprinkle your chia seeds on top of the mixture.
Bake on lower rack in the oven for 50–60 minutes, depending on the size of your bread.
Allow cool before slicing. Serve with butter and toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
And there you have it! You no longer have to be sad about not having any bread in your life when you embark on the keto diet. You can have a lower carb option that still tastes just as good as normal bread.
