1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
dash of salt
dash of pepper

Take fresh broccoli and put in bowl of choice, pour water in bottom of bowl, cover and put in microwave for 3-4 minutes. (If you want to cook on the stove top instead, steam the broccoli or boil in water until cooked) Put remaining ingredients in microwave safe bowl or cup and heat in microwave for 1-2 min, stir then repeat until ingredients can mix thoroughly together. (If you want to use the stove top instead add all ingredients plus 1/2 tablespoon butter to prevent burning) Add the broccoli and cheese sauce together, eat at once.

1 avocado
2 slices swiss cheese
1/2 turkey bacon leftover
1-2 tablespoon ranch or salad dressing of your choice

Veggie lover

1/2 cucumber
1/4- 1/2 cup total red pepper, green pepper, yellow pepper
1 tablespoon onion
1 tomato
Dash of salt
Dash of pepper

Dice and cut up all ingredients. Toss together. Add to any salad combination for more zest
Carb count: 7(total) (serves 4)

Add feta cheese
Place on top of a salad
Flat steak and incredible overly edible asparagus

Steak
Take steak and add spices of your choice, I added garlic and onion as well as the good ol' salt and pepper. When cooking steak once you see blood rising it is medium rare, flip it immediately once you see this, once flipped wait until you see red juices rise to the top and take off heat once done. This is medium to medium rare. Cook longer or shorter to your fancy.

Asparagus
6 spears or more asparagus
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon garlic
1 tablespoon parm

Add butter to fry pan, melt. Add garlic, add asparagus, top with top for pan, wait 10 min on simmer after initial high heat. Sprinke parm and toss asparagus around in pan, wait additional 10 min or so. Serve immediately.
Carb count: 2.7

Crumble cake
Yes you can eat this, and yes it is super Delicious! Like cheesecake! Use imitation sugar, not PureVia like I did, PureVia is made from dextrose which is basically sugar, straight glucose! Why they don't tell us this, I don't know. I over estimated the carb count to be around 17g supposed to be less. My cheeks immediately flushed up, got a rush, a dizzy feel, and a headache, took hours to get the flushed appearance away and tons of water later to feel remotely like I did before. Next time it will be made completely sugar free.

Not reccomended in begininng phases of ketosis. Here is the recipie though. I added unsweetened cocoa and whipping cream drizzle instead of unsweetened jelly. Courtesy of Lindas low Carb.

Cesar switch up

1-1/2 cup fresh spinach
1/4 of a cucumber diced
2 slices cheddar cheese broken into pieces
1 tablespoon feta cheese
2 tablespoon Cesar salad dressing

Add all ingredients together and enjoy!

Tonight I am planning on making Italian sausage spaghetti. I will be cutting squash into strips, topping it with marinara and cut Italian sausage with cheese on top. YUM, with a salad too :) Total meal should be less then 15 carbs.

Alrighty here was tonight's dinner:
3 squashes, sliced lengthwise thinly, sauteed in butter with salt and pepper

Brown the Italian turkey sausages 20-30 min on stove top

Squash is done. Place on plate like spaghetti noodles. 

Add 3 tablespoons of heavy cream to marinara sauce for a creamier sauce and top with sausage. 

OR leave the sauce alone as marinara and add parm cheese to top it off. 
Ingredients:
5 Italian sausages
3 squash
1 jar marinara sauce (4 carbs per 1/2 cup)

Carb Total: 10g (serves 4)

Cheese quiche
Ingredients:
12 eggs
1-2 cups cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup cream cheese
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 can mushrooms
2-3 cups spinach

Preheat oven to 425. Beat egg mixture add splash whipping cream. Pour into baking dish. Heat cheese, sour cream, cream cheese and whipping cream, add pinch salt and pepper, mix together and pour evenly over eggs. Sprinkle spinach and mushrooms on top and make sure they are in the mixture, push them in if you have to. Cook at 425 for 15 min then at 350 for 20-30 min until top gets light brown. You can add whatever you'd like to this mix, you can take out or add, its pretty fool proof. This was absolutely Delicious.

Coconut Breaded Pig Party
 Ingredients:
4 pork chops, flattened as much as possible
3-4 tablespoons coconut flour
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
2 diced garlic cloves
1/2 red onion diced
1 green onion cut up
salt and pepper to taste

Bread pork chops after you flattened them if the pieces are too thick. Dip each pork chop in the cream first then dip into a plate with coconut flour to bread. Heat oil on stove top and place breaded chops on the heat. Brown both sides. Pour coconut milk in and add garlic and onions. Add water if needed. Leave on simmer covered for around 30-40 min depending on thickness. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with sauce and a side of vegies, I chose steamed broccoli. Did not taste as "coconutty" as you would think, had a mild flavor. Pretty good, and very tender.
Carb Count: 5g each inc broccoli. (Serves 4).

This is only the beginning of all this. I will be adding more as I make it! 

Bon Appetite!
