It’s week five and I’m so glad four weeks of business travel in a row is finally ending. It’s hard to believe it’s Labor Day and what we think of as summer is over.
The scale moved 1/2 pound down this week. I’ll take it!
My morning blood sugars are all above 100 this week (ugh) and ketones were good except for Thursday. I think the coconut soup had more carbs than I realized. That’s the problem with eating out.
The August Keto Krate included a product from Nekstella and a coupon for buy one get one free. I ordered the powdered cream (for traveling) and waffle mix. My husband made me a waffle on Friday for the first one I’ve had since early June before starting keto.
The nutritional information lists 2 tablespoons as a serving but then when eating it, I realized one regular sized waffle was 4 servings! I ate 44 carbs and 16 net carbs. I won’t repeat this mistake.
The end result was pretty good though. This is one waffle folded over (so the butter I added would melt) alongside my 3 pieces of bacon.
I also ordered some new products for traveling while keto.
First one was Keto Manna which I had tried from the July Keto Krate. They are delicious and a great solution for when I’m traveling and don’t have good food options. Secondly, I bought a variety pack of individual packs of nuts from Oh, Nuts on Amazon. My husband will eat the ones that are less keto-friendly (cashews, etc.) while I get the fatty, low carb ones (walnuts, pecans, etc.).
Food and Recipes
Lots of eating out this week. I love it when I find a restaurant serving deviled eggs. These were at Founding Farmers in King of Prussia, PA.
I had the tandori chicken wings while lunching at an Indian restaurant with co-workers. My leftovers made a delicious dinner Thursday along with sauteed broccoli.
I did cook some meals at home when not on the road as well as have leftovers.
I actually made 3 meals out of one big ribeye steak. Below is the week’s food selections.

No new recipes with so little cooking this week.
Next week’s food log will be interesting as we’ll be cooking in a timeshare as well as eating out more than usual (or more than when I have business travel). It’ll be my first vacation on Keto and I hope there aren’t any surprises. Keto on!
