Yes, I know that a Zero Carb diet is “supposed” to be all animal foods. HOWEVER, I've been having some digestive issues as of late, and have felt the need to add a bit of fermented good bacteria into my system. We will see how this sauerkraut related cousin works…
Wow sorry about that guys! I was so busy living my life and not focusing on food that time just slipped away and I didn't update you on how I'm doing. Summary: I'm doing GREAT on zero carb! I'm currently on Day 22.
I'm on my 9th day of my Zero Carb Diet experiment (I started Monday April 6, 2015), It's been a bumpy ride so far but overall going very well.
As you well know, I'm very interested in nutrition and diet differences, and have dabbled in many different WOE's (Ways of Eating). I started reading some interesting blogs about a “Zero Carb Diet”, basically a keto diet on steroids! The zero carb diet can be even more effective than a plain ol' keto diet for those that are very insulin resistant (I just raised my hand), have extreme metabolic issues such as PCOS (yep), digestive issues (check) such as IBS or Crohn's or who have a disease that needs treated such as cancer or epilepsy.
I'm always in search for ways to eat more veggies, especially in the winter time. This “salad” was surprising to me… a natural sweetness combined with the saltiness of the bacon. It's a super simple side dish to prepare, and is even guest-worthy! You can top it with bleu cheese to make it more traditional ‘wedge' or leave it off for a dairy-free paleo side dish treat!
The longer I'm on a Paleo Ketogenic “keto” diet, the more I'm realizing that I personally need to eat at least 75-80% fat a day to feel ‘optimal'. This takes some adjusting if you're not used to it! So I thought I'd share my personal favorite fatty breakfast, which is 75% fat, delicious and helps keep me going throughout the day. My brain LOVES it when I eat this.
