Keto Sloppy Joe’s – Quick & Easy

Ok so was having a couple of friends over to watch football and they are not on keto so thought I would whip up something tasty and yes, keto,,, A little dirty keto but never the less still keto.

So you might wonder, what is dirty keto? If you’re following a clean diet, that means you’re avoiding processed foods, whereas a dirty keto diet is one that doesn’t focus as much on whole foods, but rather seeks to adhere only to the macro-nutrient ratio – that is, the ratio of fat, protein and carbs – of the diet. Now my wife and I stay on a pretty clean keto journey but every now and then we get a little dirty… and really the only dirty part was the bread. We use Aldi’s Zero Net Carbs bread.

Now what you need it a 1Lb of Ground Beef, 1TSP of Onion Powder, ITSP Garlic Powder, Pinch Salt & Pepper. In a skillet, mix ingredient and brown you beef over medium heat. After it good and browned, drain the fat, add a 12OZ can of Pureed Tomatoes and simmer, to that add 1/4CP Truvia Brown Sweetener. Now most important (taste it) add maybe little more salt or pepper, it’s up to you. Toast a couple slices of your keto bread, break out some of your finest paper plates (so no dishes to do) other than the pan you cooked in and enjoy.

So simple takes about 20-30 minutes to make, feeds four easy and our friends had no idea they where eating a keto dish. Great for kids, I know when I was a kid mom would wipe up some sloppy joe’s and we loved it. I really think this taste better than hers did but please don’t tell her I said so…

Please feel free to tell a friend about our site, let us know what you would like to see or if there is a dish you would like me to convert to keto I would love to give it a shot. I love trying new recipes and so does my wife. That’s it for now, enjoy your keto journey.

Struggling Starting Keto Journey – Check This Out

When I started my keto journey my wife and I agreed to give it a shot together. I have been struggling with my weight as long as I can remember, nothing like being a kid shopping in the husky section of sears right. I always struggled trying every diet out there and when I hit 277lbs and saw my daughters wedding pictures I decided to loose a little weight. I got down to 250lbs and a friend started sharing with me about keto diet. I started researching and talked with my wife and as I said before we concluded we would give it a shot. We started in March 2019 and by December of 2019 I was down from 250lbs to 198lbs, but it wasn’t just the weight it was going from wearing 3XL shirts to I was able to wear XL and pants from 44w to 36w. Today my weight stays at 174lbs, I wear shirts size L, pants still 36w, I shop in normal stores and find stuff right off the rack. Keto has changed my life and I know it can change yours.

There is a lot of info to digest on keto diet so I wanted to share a simple plan, just click on the button and find a new way of life, simple, easy and trust me well worth giving it a shot.

Just a little difference, you be the judge

If your tired of feeling like crap about your self-image do something today, it’s not hard and it is so worth it.

Lazy Keto – Keto In A Pinch

Keto Couple

Lazy Keto (a) /ˈlāzē – kē to/  is a less restrictive version of the traditional high-fat, very-low-carb ketogenic diet. … The intention is to induce ketosis, a metabolic state in which your body burns fat as its primary source of fuel. Like most variations of the ketogenic diet, lazy keto dramatically restricts your carb intake.

Yesterday was a super busy day, I was ripping & running all day and my wife was at work all day as well so we both got home around 5pm. I had not planned dinner so when Deb walked in we hung out for a minute she looks over as I am getting a cup of well needed coffee and she ask (what’s for dinner)? I was looking at the stove as if something was going to magically appear and it didn’t.

I remembered I had bought a pack of four Bacon, Cheddar, burger patties on sale at Walmart only $4.94 from $6.28, not to bad but how do they taste & will the shrink up? Who cares we are hungry! So here we go, pan check, olive oil spray check, salt & pepper check, spatula check and here we go.

I was totally impressed with how these burgers didn’t shrink up, flavor was awesome and the carb count could have been a little better but we where ok with that. Deb had a light lunch I had a small pack of cashews & pork rinds so the carbs didn’t put us out of wack. LAZY KETO!

Video Short

We loved the burger patties and I hope we can find them again and on sale would be awesome. If you in a pinch, lazy keto will work just keep tabs on your macros but don’t beat yourself up, this is a journey and not a race.

I Need Pizza! I Got Pizza!

Hello family, it’s been a couple of days since I last posted. I was struggling getting past my 187lb weight and this mornings weigh in was 185.6lb… Breakthrough, yes! It’s all about the baby steps but but it feels so good to get through the wall I was at for a few months. No I didn’t do a fast, all I did was up my salad and lighten up on the proteins while maintaining the fats. Sounds like science class but it’s super easy. Instead of 8oz of steak, I would go with a little smaller portion of chicken or fish add a big ole salad with some avocado slices. That’s a simple mod to the diet that did wonders.

So I was having a pizza craving and normally I like to make my chicken pizza crust but in my craving fit and not wanting all the proteins that would have added, I decided to do smaller personal pizzas, keto style. This is so simple, tasty and not bad for ya.

Not a good picture but pizza taste great

This is what we do and you can do the same or experiment, change things up just pay attention to your ingredients. We take low carb tortillas, Roa’s marinara sauce, cheeses (I used Parmesan & Mozzarella) and this one I used some pulled pork I had made a few days before, simple.

We like the HEB tortillas, but there are many out there to choose from:

Roa's Marinara Sauce is great for many recipes, very clean ingredients and not to bad on the carb count.

Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 degrees, on a cookie sheet place your tortillas let them get lightly browned about 5 minutes. Remove from oven, put a nice layer of mozzarella cheese on and return it to the over just for a few minutes till cheese starts to melt. While that is going on I used a non-stick pan to heat up some pulled pork, seasoned with salt & pepper, once it starting to sizzle I add some of the Roa’s marinara sauce. Pull your tortilla covered in melted cheese out of the oven, spread some of your sauced pork over and then cover the top with a mix of Mozzarella & Parmesan cheese, run it back into the over till nice melt with a little browning on top. Pull it out and WARNING: It’s going to be HOT! Let it stand for a few seconds before diving in and enjoy.

I used the pulled pork because I didn’t want to waist it but you can use pretty much any toppings from chicken, pepperonis maybe go veggie with some spinach, what ever you want to create. Try different types of cheeses, just give it a try I think you will like it I know my wife and I sure did.

Please leave us comments, let me know what topics you would like us to cover. Let us know how keto is working for you or if your having any issues. We want to help you with getting fit and enjoying life. God bless.

Goodbye Muffin Top! 7 Ways to Shrink Your Muffin Top

Hello all you keto friends, I hope the New Year will be a rewarding & blessed one for each and everyone of you.

One of the folks I love to get information about living a keto lifestyle is a guy named Thomas DeLauer, he is a very smart and educated on keto. Before starting my keto journey I was researching how to start keto, I listened to many many people and read a ton of information and found a few folks, Thomas being one of them that offered good quality information, before just jumping in. His information gives not just opinions but the science behind his info, which I love and it has been working for my wife and I. So when checking youtube channel this morning I saw this video and had to watch. I watched and now I have to share it wit you.

As most of you know, I have dropped from 250lb to 187lb, I have been at the same weight for about 2 1/2 months now and I am so so happy with my results. I started working out to tone up my arms because I have extra skin and now looking at my muffin top. It is driving me nuts so this video is perfect timing for me and I hope it helps you.

Please leave comments and share our blog, we want to make your keto journey a awesome one.

Macros? What are they & how to calculate them?

Starting a keto diet we hear the word MACROS a lot, so What are Macros? Macros means macro-nutrients – fat, protein and carbohydrates. These are the building blocks of the foods we eat. Fat has 9 calories per gram, and protein and carbs have 4 calories per gram. A low carb or keto diet is based upon the principle of restricting carbohydrates.

Hummm, what are the macros

Why are macros important? So starting a keto diet, you want to be able to look at a product label and quickly decide if this is good or bad for you. You can at a glance and see if you are exceeding you carbs for the day or maybe trying to up the fat count, track calories, etc. It’s all right there. Make sure to read ingredients make sure there is not a lot of extra junk you can’t even pronounce? You want clean, simple ingredients. Example: Here is a Natural Peanut Butter: Made From Peanuts, Sugar, Palm Oil, Contains 2% Or Less Of: Salt, Contains 2% Or Less Of: Molasses (now I don’t know about you but Peanut Butter doesn’t naturally come with sugar, palm oil, salt or molasses) Here is a real Natural Peanut Butter: Peanuts & Sea salt (this is good and clean).

Now you might want to know how many carbs should I be taking in or how many calories? I found an easy to use Keto Calculator from the folks at Rule.Me , just put in a little simple info and it will give a good estimate of how many Calories, Fats, Proteins you should be getting each day.

We want to make your keto journey as easy as possible so you will have the success we have had and not just another diet disaster. Believe me, I know I have tried so many times just about every diet out there and this has been the easiest and sustainable of them. That’s why I don’t even like calling it a diet because diets fail, this keto journey works.

Here is the link to Rule.Me Keto Calculator enjoy.
