Have you started implementing THM in your life?

The last two weeks I gave suggestions for breakfast and lunch. Today we tackle dinner. You can make it as simple or complicated as you want. I tend to like complicated but when I am camping I do try to make things easier.

Let’s start with S meals (high fat-low carb)

Honestly, you can do any Keto recipe here, they are everywhere. These meals do line-up with the Keto.

You can make a hamburger, no bun but put any other topping you want on there. Use sugar-free ketchup, I can’t taste the difference. You can even use regular mayo, the amount of sugar is so small it won’t hurt you.

If you don’t like red meat you can make a turkey burger and just put the fat on it in the form of cheese, avocados, guacamole, or maybe fry it up in some coconut oil so you are getting those good healthy fats in there.

For a side you can do a salad, or any non-strachie veggie, and can even cook it in butter.

You can also have steak, pork chops, Brats, Hot Dogs, really any type of meat you want.

If you want recipes (that’s how I work) here are some I have tried.

Cheeseburger Quesadilla (love this one)

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Tiny Tasty Tacos

Cauliflower Chowder, one of my favorites

Easy Taco Pie, I put this on a bed of lettuce

Here are some E meal ideas:

For these meals you need a lean mean, like chicken, turkey or a very lean hamburger (venison would work). You want to keep the fat very minimal. Chicken sausage would work too.

You want a gentle carb here like a sweet potato (no butter though, could use 0% yogurt), quinoa (3/4 cup) or brown rice (1/2 a cup), or carrots.

You can to add some type of veggie or salad with the carb but don’t add any fat to it, or keep it to 1 tsp. You can open a can a green beans and that is fine or make a salad.

Remember if you are in weight-mode you can’t have the white potato. Once you are at goal weight you can add them once in a while but I honestly hardly ever eat white potatoes anymore.

Here are some recipes:

Chicken Apple Sausage with Cabbage Noodles (I never thought I would like cabbage noodles but I really do)

Peachy Crockpot Chicken

Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole (don’t worry if you don’t have poppy seeds, I didn’t).

I was a carb queen so it’s surprising to don’t do more E meals but I find the S meals a bit more yummy and . . . satisfying (ha, ha).

Alternate between S and E meals and remember you can have leftovers for lunch now!

Next week we’ll talk about snacks.
