Well hello, fine people!
Going to pause Tropes Thursday because I just haven’t had any inspiration and feeling a little on the crappy side — mostly allergies.
I did get my new night guard from the special TMJ dentist and I actually prefer the night guard to my own teeth.
I wore it all last night after getting home from work, while playing Oblivion. According to S.O. I MUST play Oblivion before Skyrim. Even though it was made in 2006, it is still absolutely friggin gorgeous.
Four hours of xboxing later, and I love my new mouth guard.
So, still kind of plateaued with my keto journey — I’m blaming PMS this week. Fun times.
But I have a new favorite, easy thing that I love.
I usually buy ground turkey, but I splurged on beef. What I did, was I cooked up some bacon — because bacon is amazing. Then I made my burgers, with egg and pork rinds to hold it together. Stuffed a cube of cheese in there; I used Vermont cheddar. And then I cooked those suckers in the bacon fat.
Decadently artery clogging, right!
But, very keto friendly — and if you follow keto right, not so much with the artery clogging.
I fried an egg and threw it on top.
Ate on a bed of kale with some tomato slices.
Like 5 net carbs — mostly because tomato and kale. But you gotta have fiber! Because pooping is awesome!
I might throw on some sauteed mushrooms next time.
I’ve been doing a lot of medical research on the keto lifestyle and how your body processes glucose versus ketones. Did you know that a keto diet is recommended for people who have epilepsy because ketones are better fuel source for the brain?
Also, and this is mostly anecdotal (I asked on reddit), but keto really helps people with their emotional and mental wellbeing. Lots of people who are on SSRI’s and other antipsychotics show improvement on this diet. I’m really digging it because in spite of my SSRI making my sex drive like -13, I can feel it picking back up.
