Boursin Cheese

This stuff is really, really good. And with about five times as much fat as protein, it’s a great snack. It’s not too hard to find; most supermarkets carry it. Another option is to make your own. Here’s how I do it:

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Cream Cheese (16 oz.) Softened
  • 8 oz. Whipped Butter, Room Temperature
  • 1-2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic (Optional- I like mine really garlic-y)

Directions

  • In a food processor, hand mixer, or even a blender, mix together butter and cream cheese.
  • Add seasonings/herbs, blend together.
  • Refrigerate for at least a couple hours before eating. (I like to separate the cheese into a few small containers)
  • Enjoy!

Avocado

Another easy snack. With fat and fiber, avocados are a great snack.

A very simple way to prepare your snack:

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sriracha (optional)

Directions

  • Cut avocado in half and remove pit.
  • Scoop out avocado “meat,” and chop it up.
  • Drizzle olive oil, sprinkle salt and pepper.
  • Add some sriracha if you like some spice.

Enjoy!

 

Easy Eggs

Eggs. And they’re easy.

IMG_20180204_1250064

Ingredients

  • 2-4 eggs (depending on your hunger level)
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil

Optional Ingredients – I add one or more of these depending on what I have and if I’m feeling “fancy”

  • Mushrooms
  • Peppers (Green or Red)
  • Cheese (Boursin or Brie are delicious)
  • Cooked Ground Sausage (1-2 oz)
  • 1-2 Bacon Slices, Chopped

Directions

  1. Use a medium to large saute pan, medium heat
  2. Pour half of the coconut oil into the pan
  3. If you’re adding mushrooms or peppers, add these first, saute until softened
  4. Add eggs, scramble.
  5. When eggs are almost done, add remaining coconut oil and mix everything together well. (This is when you would add cheese and/or sausage)

Serve, enjoy!

 

Burgers

For burgers I either make them myself from ground beef or I buy a decent quality frozen patty, like Bubba Burgers.

Grill/Pan Fry to desired cooked level.

Top with chosen condiments/veggies:

  • mustard
  • mayo
  • pickles
  • kimchi
  • fried egg
  • cheese
  • onions
  • mushrooms
  • bacon

You can either eat this with a fork and knife, wrap it in lettuce, or use some keto buns.
