Breakfast

poached eggs, bacon, alfalfa sprouts, ranch dressing

If this picture illustrates anything, it’s my love affair with lazy keto.

The longer I live the more I realize the fat profile for this type is omega 6 including cured meats (bacon) and use of vegetable oils (ranch dressing), whose sole or majority reliance on are not as healthy as other fat alternatives like avocado and fish, so I will be changing up my morning regimen to include fish, which match an omega 3 fat profile.

A useful article that helped me understand the differences and examples of each:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with decreased inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in many foods, including salmon, eggs, walnuts, and flaxseed, as well as leafy green vegetables, such as spinach. Perhaps not surprisingly, these foods are commonly recommended as part of an anti-inflammatory diet.
  • Omega-6 fatty acids are associated with increased inflammation. Omega-6 fatty acids are found in most vegetable oils, including sunflower, corn, and canola oils, as well as meats, such as chicken, pork, and beef (—though grass-fed beef can be a source of omega-3’s.

Hello, my name is Hilary, and I'm not exactly sure why, but I often find myself wondering about the many mysteries of life. Throughout my life, I have learned that life is exciting when perceived as infinite refactoring for discovery and enjoyment. That being said, I enjoy learning about the existential crises of others and the creative strategies people use to achieve goals through barriers, challenges, and obstacles.
