Cheapo keto lunch
I’m fed up of most of the shops around here. They use any excuse to shove fast amounts of carb fillers into what would otherwise be healthy foods. So today I went to Marks & Spencer and bought some mackerel and a couple of little gem lettuces. I then ate the lettuce like an apple, much to the hilarity of my colleagues. Looked like a caveman.

Breakfast this morning was streaky bacon on a substrate of grated courgette / egg. This time I squeezed some of the water out of the courgette, which meant it fried better. Then I served with a dollop of cream cheese. Altogether about 500 calories and kept me feeling full until about 12pm.
