Embracing Fat- Keto

Breakfast. Dark chocolate, macadamia nuts, avocado, almonds. All nuts toasted and salted and all here are organic. Everyone in the web just advice you to replenish electrolytes, so i was deinking potassium salt water (sodium plus potassium -lite salt) with lemon in the morning and day 6 was not agreeing with me and I expelled everything I was drinking and veges I was eating. I was going to quit felt like it was killing me. I lie in bed praying is this the right thing. i prayed to God for help. i napped exhausted from expelling everything from my stomach. I stood up in 20 mins I said I quit and ate 5 pieces organic black berries. I go back to bed, I felt my stomach growl and felt the numbness in my hands and chest like elextricity leaving my body and all my senses became normal no more tinggling in my hands and pain in my chest! I discovered I was too basic from the salt I was drinking, from the veges I was eating. I ate small soup and ate few pieces  pepperchini pickles. And from now on when I feel like vege overload(slight numbness in my neck or left jaw) I eat pickles. You can find organic ones at Vons... It makes perfect sense. We need acid like apple cider vinegar or lemon or pickles or sauerkraut or kimchi, probiotics to digest and absorb what we put in our body- even when we are not in Keto. Listen to our body. Eat when hungry, drink when thisrty, rest when tired. 

Bullet proof coffee- grass fed butter, organic vanilla, I put organic stevia to sweeten, coconut oil or MCT(medium Chain Triglyceride) oil you can get them at citamin stores or health organic farm stores or Trader Joes. Keeps you energize until lunch time. 
Tastier blended I am not sure why. 

I feel bad because I am not used to these yummy stuff,  but I need it, at least I have wild caught salmon. Lunch with veges. 
My typical morning soup loaded with potassium. I squeeze lemon also to taste better like filipino "sinigang" (tamarind soup) if you have fresh tamarind better. This is grass fed ground beef wsauted with garlic, onion, ginger, simmerred for long. I just reheat morning or dinner and add cups and cups of spinach or bokchoy, or kale or brocolli, etc.. Eat your potassium enjoy! 
My go to dinner. I put organic turmeric powder also for anti inflammatory in addition to my veges. I take magnesium citrate(vegan) one tablet in the morning. It helps you with the bowels, yuk! And one tablet during dinner and it helps you relax and sleep better. If you feel numbness it is lack of electrolytes because low carbohydrate diet forces our kidneys to excrete water and water comes with electrolytes- potassium K, Sodium Na, and Magnesium Mg... So eat avocado daily, eat green leafy vegetables (cooked spinach yield more potassium than fresh) but I still eat fresh salads throughout the week, raw is better. And sip your yummy broth. I got organic chicken broth from Trader Joes too, so in case I get busy and no time to cook soup. 

I drink bullet proof organic sleepy tea an hour or so before bed so not to get hungry...
