Our Keto Reset - Day 5

Day 5.

Felt absolutely great today. Got up at 6 AM. Walked 1.1 miles. Not a lot, but it’s something.

Today's menu:

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with butter and heavy cream. So good. Two sausage patties each.
Mid Morning: 2 oz cheddar cheese
Lunch: Chipoltle
Me: Chicken Keto Bowl with Green Salsa
Yvonne: Steak Keto Bowl with Green Sals
Afternoon: Nothing
Dinner: Bottom Round Steak in Mushroom Gravy with Brussel Sprouts

Dinner was an interesting proposition. We had this 2 pound bottom round steak in our upright freezer for two years. I found a recipe and used the instapot. Essentially, I cut the round steak into bite size pieces and then cooked it with onions, mushrooms, and cream of mushroom soup mix for 1.2 hours in the instapot. And guess what? It came out soupy. So, I microwaved the brussel sprouts and put them in the mix, added some arrowroot to make the soup into a gravy, and we ate it like a gravy boat of beef and brussel spouts. Of course, had we not been on the Keto Diet, we would have probably used some sort of pasta to carry the gravy, but we didn’t. And good on us.
Also, for lunch, it was interesting that all I had to tell the guy at Chiplotle was we were having Keto Bowls. He knew exactly what the hack was. It's not on their menu. It's just a bowl without the beans or the chips. We were only able to eat half. It was damn good, but surprisingly expensive. 

Total Weight Loss:
Weston: -3
Yvonne: -3
