After having some issue with the dishwasher, I am surprised that I made any food at all. But I am quite proud that I did not opt for the ordering out option.
I normally don't care much for sweets but when I want something sweet then I really do.
So I whipped this up: creamed coconut with vanilla, and frozen strawberries. I didn't even have half of it and was stuffed.
This is definitely a keeper :) .
I think this dish is a good dish to have some fake noodles :)
A bit more spicy than I anticipated this dish was absolutely delicious. I have not made the spice mix myself though. I bought it from my local supermarket. I am not ashamed to admit it.
I made good use of both coconut oil and coconut milk in this dish, both ingredients that I love.
I followed some instructions on how to cook konjac noodles, i.e. I washed them and fried them off to dry them off but to be honest, I don't think it made a difference.
What's your secret to cooking konjac noddles?
I have read a lot about MCT oil recently, and decided to incorporate it into my day-to-day diet.
As you probably know MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides and apparently MCT oil is quite beneficial for your health. Some of the health benefits in regards to Keto are:
It makes you feel fuller
It reduces stored body fat
It raises your metabolic function
It improves digestion
These benefits made me curious, so I will add this to my daily supplements and see how it goes.
If anyone is taking MCT oil as capsules, please share your experience with me, as I am very interested. Thanks!
Fasting has always been a scary word for me. I mean, fasting means not eating, right?
Not eating for hours on end, sometimes even for days. This surely can't be achievable? And surely it must be dangerous. At least to the outside world, as I for example am a very hangry person. I should have a t-shirt printed that says 'sorry for what I said or did when I was hangry'.
So I read about 16/8 intermittent fasting, and the potential benefits on Keto.
And you know what? Without realising it, I have been doing 16/8 intermittent fasting for a good while now. I skip breakfast because I no longer feel hungry in the mornings, and have my first meal of the day at 1:30 pm when I go for lunch.
So during the week I have been doing either a 16/8 or a 18/6 fast without realising it. Not bad, ey?
