Another week of keto living is in the books and this one I was traveling three days and got to have more experience dining out keto. I’ll be traveling three weeks out of four in November so practice makes perfect. 🙂
I captured this shot of trees from the hotel’s staircase during one of the times it wasn’t raining.
After last week’s big whoosh, I had a small loss of .6 pounds bringing my total loss to -24.2 pounds. So excited to be so close to 25 pounds. Also looks like my goal of 30 pounds by the end of the year is realistic.
Something knocked me out of ketosis last Monday and the only thing I can think of is the chocolate cheesecake fat bombs I bought last weekend. They were within my macros I thought but my ketones were so low they weren’t measurable!
This week I made pizza using the Outer Aisles Cauliflower Crust. The crust has just four ingredients: cauliflower, parmesan cheese, eggs and nutritional yeast and four total carbs for the entire crust.
I had it in the oven a tad too long, hence the very brown edges but the pizza was quick and good (although my favorite keto pizza recipe is still the one from Kristie Sullivan.
Outer aisle also sells cauliflower sandwich thins. You can find stores selling these products on their website.
Food and Recipes
Most meals were boring but I did want to share photos of my three breakfasts away from home to give anyone traveling ideas.
Above is the “sandwich” I ordered at The Counter in the San Diego airport. They’re used to people ordering it without a bread and it was very good keeping me satisfied throughout the flight until I got an early dinner in Louisiana.
The hotel buffet had keto-friendly options and this is the plate from my first morning . I dipped the walnuts in the cream cheese — delicious!
The second morning they had andouille sausage instead of bacon which I couldn’t finish due to the spiciness!
The first night I picked Outback Steakhouse to eat. I know there were local favorites but the menus weren’t very keto friendly and I was very hungry after no lunch so picked a place that knew how to cook steak. I also had a side salad with this meal.
The next night my coworker wanted to try something that had local food so I selected this salad that included rotisserie meats. It wasn’t as good as I expected and was surprised that they tossed it all together. I did get to eat some of the crispy duck my co-worker ordered and it was yummy.
