I’m going to consider this post to be more of a PSA about the evils of free samples in grocery stores…
I was craving some chinese food, but unfortunately it’s not exactly Jason’s favourite so I decided to put off ordering any until one night when he’s working late… so we wandered over to Safeway to see if anything looked appetizing, and I saw they had ginger beef in the deli. I figured I’d give it a try and asked for a sample, she gave me 3 pieces and I ate them as we walked around picking up our groceries. I stopped for a moment to check the nutrition info on MyFitnessPal, and found that I had just eaten 10g of carbs in those 2 and a half little pieces…
Word to the wise… look it up before you eat it up! Suffice it to say I was a bit more limited on what to have for dinner, so I opted for steak. Nice, carbless, delicious steak.
In other news, Jason bought me an advent calendar for December! He went through the trouble of looking at the carb counts on all of the calendars until he found the one with the fewest carbs per chocolate. It just so happened to be a Lindt calendar (I love Lindt!) at 3g of carbs per chocolate, which I can definitely live with! Today’s chocolate was even chocolate hazelnut, which is my absolute favourite!
Happy Holidays, and keto on!
