I was excited to start my egg fast this morning. I like eggs, although I wasn’t sure about an entire day of them! I started my day with 2 fried eggs cooked in a bit of butter topped with 2 TB cream cheese, and everything bagel seasoning. It was really good! Everything bagel seasoning makes everything taste great! I was super full after that so I forgot to eat my cheese for a snack.
For lunch, I had egg salad with 2 hardboiled eggs, 2 TB mayo, everything bagel seasoning (because why not), a bit of ground mustard, and a cut up cheese stick. My cat was drawn to my egg salad as if it were served over a bed of catnip. I have no idea why, but I ended up eating the egg salad standing up at my kitchen island because he wouldn’t leave me alone.
I felt a little rough after lunch. Just tired and a bit weak. I had a cheese stick with olive oil, salt, and pepper as a snack and then a wedge of brie a bit later. That helped a bit. I made some bulletproof coffee with Kerrygold butter and coconut oil to get me to dinner.
Dinner was the one I was most excited for. I made cream cheese egg pancakes. They looked ugly, but they tasted great. I topped them with butter and Walden Farms no calorie, no carb syrup. Super yummy and didn’t even feel like I was eating eggs….again.
To make the pancakes, I put 2 eggs and 2 TB cream cheese in a bullet blender and mixed together. I heated up 1 TB butter in a pan and poured the batter on top. I cooked one side and then attempted to flip it over nicely but you can see how my attempt went! I finished cooking it and served with 1 TB butter and the syrup.
I don’t think I’ll do this again tomorrow. I like all of these egg meals independently, but having them all in one day was rough. I don’t know how people do 3 or even 5 days of this! I’ve had a bit of a headache all day and I blame the egg fast!
We’ll see what the scale says tomorrow, but the thing I like about keto is that I don’t feel hungry and I don’t feel like I’m on some wacky diet. While I wasn’t super hungry (probably because of all the fat I’m eating), I actually was craving vegetables all day. I’m going to try and go the full day just doing the egg fast as planned for the sake of being able to report on it, but I’m definitely jonesing for some veggies.
Grocery list for the day:
6 eggs (4 fresh and 2 hardboiled)
4 TB cream cheese (2 with breakfast, 2 for dinner)
2 cheese sticks (1 in egg salad, 1 as snack)
2 small wedges brie (snack)
2 TB mayo (in egg salad)
1 TB olive oil (with cheese stick snack)
4 TB butter (2 with breakfast, 2 with dinner)
everything bagel seasoning (with breakfast and lunch)
salt and pepper
ground mustard (in egg salad)
All the meals I made today were great and I plan to eat them again as part of my normal keto diet, just maybe not all at once! This was a super easy day of eating since I always knew what I was going to eat and all the meals were easy to make. This could be beneficial for someone starting out who doesn’t want to think about what to eat.
