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.
- Jarlsberg Cheese
- Zucchini twirls
- Pasta sauce
- 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)
