As I said before, nobody s perfect and this diet is so restrictive that it is completly normal to be tempted. Sometimes it happens that you fall out of the wagon because you are alone, nobody is watching you, you have a moment of weakness. For me, it was this rest of spaghetti. I knew it was there and I wanted it so bad so I cooked it and to have a good conscience I made a sauce with a lot of fat. After 3 spoons, I throw it away. I felt very bad because I knew that I broke my system, I was scared that somebody would find out and be disapointed. Two days later, I made a Ketostick Test and it was only pink, not velvet red like usual. This showed me that really everything what I eat has an influence on my body and it is very important that I keep this diet without exceptions.
So I asked myself, how can I stay strong in my ketogenic diet and continue to eat things that I love for instance lasagna or pizza?
I started experimenting with cooking. I created a ketogenic lasagna and I have to say it is work but it is so delicious, it´s worth it!!! Here is the recipe…
For my birthday, I made homemade pizza so my friends wouldn´t complain about the food (no carbs, what????). I garnished the pizza with things that I could eat and a lot of fresh mozzarella. I ate the garnish with a homemade garlic olive oil, it was delicious like a vegetable casserole baked with cheese. You just have to remember not to eat the base of the pizza. Which in fact doesn´t matter because it´what has the less taste from the whole meal!
Same for pasta: in fact white pasta has no real taste, if you replace it with vegetables in a creative way with for instance zucchini spaghetti and any sauce that pleases you, you have a great dish!
