Dinner – Example

People want to know some examples of what I eat.  Today, Sunday, December 9, 2018, for dinner we decided not to cook since it was late and put together this quick dinner.  I have been on the Keto lifestyle for a while.  My plate size has been reduced.  Most of the time now I use a sandwich plate, full at it is, it is the amount of food that is fulling which is one of the significant changes since eating this way.  I also like the flavors and look forward to eating where I appreciate each bite more.

Here is what is included on the plate.
  • ArugulaExample of dinner
  • Jarlsberg Cheese
  • Onion
  • Avocado
  • Zucchini twirls
  • Pasta sauce
  • Pesto
  • Pepper
  • Good Season dressing

Macronutrient Content: (566 Calories)

  • Protein – 14.2 grams (10.0% of calories)
  • Net Carbs – 12.7 grams (8.9% of calories)
  • Fat – 51 grams (81.1% of calories)

Note, fat is denser, therefore it has a larger calorie impact.

On a smaller plate, I feel satisfied and full.  No bloating or feeling tired.
