Egg Drop Soup
So I’ve been pretty well down for the count the last 4 days with a terrible cold (I blame Jason! He had it first!). I asked my fellow ketards what they eat when they have a cold and the main answer I got was “broth”. Bleh. I’ve never been a big fan of broth to begin with, and I did try to add some to my regular diet to get some more sodium but I just couldn’t stomach the taste… But I had to have something to help this cold. So I decided to give egg drop soup a try. Or at least my adapted version of it (I’ve never made it before so I just kind of wing’d it). Essentially I added some chopped green onion and a teaspoon of salt to about 2 cups of chicken broth (I tried a different brand this time, it seems much better!), brought it to a boil, kept it stirring and slowly dropped some egg into it.
The result was… delicious! I’m not a soup person to begin with, but I could see myself making this on a regular basis (if only to help my sodium intake). As an added bonus, when I have some I feel a little better almost instantly 🙂
Keto Support Group
A week or two ago someone posted on the keto reddit an idea about putting together a Keto Support Group via Skype. I jumped on board, and on Monday at 7pm PST we had our first group “meeting”. There were about 6 of us (one had to leave a bit early as she wasn’t feeling well, and another arrived a bit late), and we figured we’d meet for about an hour… well, about 2 and a half hours later, we were still talking! I think it turned out really well and I really enjoyed talking to other people who can relate to the keto lifestyle. We had a pretty diverse turnout, from keto-newbies of only one or two weeks, to keto-veterans of 1 or 2 years.
Our next meeting is the same time next Monday, and we’re still looking for more people to join! If anyone is interested, feel free to comment below or add me on Skype (username is daerina).
Anyways, my weight loss appears to have stalled briefly the last few days… I’m not entirely sure if it’s due to shark week or if my head really is as heavy as it feels! Either way hopefully by next week I’ll be back on track 🙂
Keep calm and keto on!
