Well, it has been 5 days now since I started this crazy diet. I am a picky eater so it is difficult to find those food items that I will actually eat. I found a few recipes and thought I would try them out. One was good the other, well not so much.
First, I tried a recipe for a KeDough Pizza. It was made with whey protein powder and several cheeses for the dough. I mean this had the absolute best smell ever. I was so excited to try this. I took my first bite and it was not horrible. I thought “okay this is doable”. I took my second bite and begin to doubt my first thought. I ate about 4 bites and that was it. I could not put another bite in my mouth. (I know that’s awful.) I took the cheese and pepperoni from the top and ate it.
Secondly, I found a cracker recipe. Click here for this recipe . I feel in love with these crackers. It reminded me of a breakfast items we used to eat when I was younger called a polish mistake. The recipe calls for adding your own spice so I choose to use crushed red peppers to make them a little spicy. These I will definitely make again.
I decided that I am going to try to make the pizza again but instead of using the whey protein powder, I will substitute the almond flour and see if that is any better.
Good news is, I am down 3 pounds and it is getting easier.
I will continue to update my journey and share more triumphs and failures on recipe trials.
