Keto pizza and grocery shopping

Today to kickstart my diet I went grocery shopping. Usually I get too caught up in planning the perfect grocery list that maximizes the number of dishes with the same ingredients. This time I kept things simple. I basically picked three meals that I wanted to eat and bought ingredients to prepare those things. Ha! That’s probably what normal people do lol.

Over the next few days I plan on making Keto pizza, and cauliflower nachos! The other was my go to meal of rotisserie chicken and fresh mozzarella. I would have also picked up some jalapeno stuffed olives to go along with those but the deli was out :(. In addition while at the grocery store I realized that I have all of the ingredients to make tacos with lettuce shells except for the lettuce itself so I added that to the cart. Boom! Four meals with almost zero effort.

When I got home I decided to just eat some of the chicken dipped in olive oil. Since chicken is so lean and I’ve had some trouble getting fat in the past I’ve looked up some tips on how to add fat. It was okay. I think that I would do it again as it kind of reminds me of dipping bread into olive oil and balsamic vinegar, but it wasn’t fantastic. I wasn’t blown away. In fact, I had some of the fresh mozzarella dipped in the olive oil and that was way better. I may try adding butter to my chicken next time and saving to olive oil for my cheese.

For dinner I made an easy keto pizza using a low carb tortilla. I actually made a gif to show you guys. Would have been way too many boring pictures to put in a row.

Once introduced to the concept I didn’t really need instructions to make this one. I basically heated up the tortilla on the stovetop then added all the fixings. Then I put it under the broiler to melt the cheese. In retrospect I probably could have left it a little longer to get the cheese and pepperoni more crispy, but I was worried about burning dinner.

This was surprisingly filling. eating one was enough for me, but you could easily pair this with a nice salad or some keto friendly hot wings.
