So here I am again. I'm sort of beginning a trial of the Protein Sparing Modified Fast. Sort of I say, because I am desperate, I'm needing something to give me a new start and back to doing keto/low carb in a more healthy way, and still learning this, so if you are a pro at it, please be kind. There are many ways of doing this from all my YouTube viewing and reading and so forth, and I've come up with my own modified view... my own plan, which is what I usually do with any way of eating.
This is not technically a "way of eating" or a lifestyle, however. It is a quick fix, a jump start, a fast fat loss method, not one you do long term. I'm not really liking the very low fat part of it, but it's temporary. I can live with temporary and whatever helps me get back to my norm, and helps me get rid of my newly acquired food addictions.
If you are not doing PSMF, but low carb or keto you can do this recipe and add more fat too it... like some butter to the gravy which will make it even richer.
This is not a great recipe creation by any means, it's pretty simple and not much creativity went into it, but I thought I'd share it because we all need some inspiration and ideas now and then for a quick, simple meal. Quick and simple is what I do these days.
So here ya go:
