I ate a fat burning smoothie for breakfast and it made my stomach really upset. I didn't throw up, but for the next few hours I felt pretty ill. I think it's because my system is so used to getting carbs for breakfast and I've never eaten fat in that amount before (2 tbsp. coconut oil in the smoothie). So maybe I need a little milder breakfast. Something with eggs and maybe bacon, that is a little closer to my typical breakfast while I wait for my system to switch over and get used to a new diet. (Hard core Keto followers don't eat bacon, I'm going to include it, but not overkill on it as some Keto plans have you do. I really don't need bacon for every meal.) But then again.... I'm also sick today, so maybe it's just a side effect of being sick. I've been feeling bad all day, I even cancelled my flute lesson. I didn't eat much for dinner either.
|Note to self: do not use melted coconut oil in a cold drink, it causes the coconut oil to turn solid. Coconut oil would be better in the warm version of this drink, but I'm still waiting for my MCT oil to come in... Learning curve|
I didn't get everything made that I wanted to, but I managed to make dinner. It was called one pot hamburger dinner and it was a ground beef and cauliflower rice skillet. It was really good. I've made them before, but this one was my favorite. It had nutritional yeast in it which gave it a great taste. Basically you just cook the beef, then add some cauliflower rice, beef stock, and Italian seasoning and cover and cook for 10 minutes then add the nutritional yeast at the end. It was super easy which worked out well because I almost didn't make it due to not feeling well. Hopefully I can get some good sleep tonight, I haven't been sleeping well over the past several days because my head has been filling up at night and the pressure has been really bad. I'm going to start using my Eucalyptus oil.
