When we wanted some chicken wings, we opted for President’s Choice Dry-seasoned Rotisserie-style Chicken Wings made in our air fryer. They are low in carbs (watch the serving size though) and really tasty too. We had steamed green beans with butter on the side.
Once again, we enjoyed a roast beef made in the slow cooker with some broccoli and cheese sauce. My daughter is missing her mashed potatoes so I made some just for her.
On a day that we were busy so my plans went to the wayside and I ordered pizza for the kids. Mike and I just snacked on pepperettes, hard boiled eggs and almonds. The next night I made italian sausage with asparagus.
We celebrated Christmas a little late with my in-laws. We put together a potluck meal rather than make a big turkey dinner. My sister-in-law and her family are also eating low carb. We ended up with a great selection of low carb food that included meatballs, chicken wings, deviled eggs, raw veggies and cole slow. We also had taco bites made with a cheese cup rather than a taco shell, cheese crisps, artichoke dip and a cheese platter.
The kids were requesting tacos so we put together the regular tacos for them and had taco salad for ourselves. This is how we normally did tacos in our house so it didn’t require any sacrifice on our part.
More Meal Ideas
I heated some President’s Choice angus meatballs and made my own keto sweet and sour sauce. A cheesy cauliflower mash made an excellent side dish with them.
Breakfast for dinner is always a good idea so we enjoyed omelettes and bacon one evening.
My attempt at a keto lasagna didn’t work well, so I switched it to a keto lazy lasagna. It was simply ground beef, diced tomatoes, cottage cheese, mushrooms and tomato sauce. It was okay but not a huge hit with the family.
The remaining meals were either leftovers or dining out. I made Cheesecake Fat Bombs at the beginning of week three and they were a little too good. I ate them several times a day and I believe the sweetness (although it was artificial sweetener) caused cravings. My husband’s birthday also fell at the end of week four and we ate pizza and coffee cake. We did both in moderation, but it was an obvious deviation from eating keto.
