Here is what I picked up today at the grocery store:

watermelon, Purely Elizabeth’s crunchy granola, avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, King Arthur’s keto wheat flour, mushrooms, green peppers, lettuce, white onion, green pea shoots, asparagus, breakfast sausage, chicken thighs, turkey breast, eggs, heavy cream, cheddar, black beans, bacon, green beans

The one thing I’ave been reading lately is an idea about how it’s better to eat fruit than drink soda. Since I have an obsession with Diet Dr. Pepper and Dr. Pepper Zero, I figured why not start eating watermelon instead of drinking soda? I know it’s not keto, but I’ve been working on not eating any toast/processed breads for breakfast, which would allow me to have some carbs in the form of fruit later on in my day.

Another idea I’ve been thinking about is the idea that to reduce cholesterol you can eat fiber, and that fiber sops up/sticks to the cholesterol and removes it from your system. So I’ve been so enjoying keto cereal: purely Elizabeth’s crunchy granola, hemp hearts, chia, and unsweetened almond milk. The flavors I eat are the ones with the lowest net carbs:

keto grocery list

alfalfa sprouts, avocados, salsa, Velveeta cheese, canned Rotel, eggs, rack ribs, heavy cream, block sharp cheddar cheese, 50/50 spinach spring lettuce mix, rye bread

Note on processed carbs: If I have a slice of toast for breakfast, I can still stay in ketosis. When I make Rotel dip, I’ll have it with pork rinds.

I watched this video a few weeks ago about what to buy at fast food restaurants that is keto friendly:

I learned that the closest keto item at Taco Bell is the chicken quesadilla, and if you are eating at a Chinese food restaurant, choose hot and sour soup, beef teriyaki, and chicken teriyaki. I also order crab Rangoons, which is not necessarily keto, but the high amount of fat, basically cream cheese, is justifiable to me.
