On Sunday, I decided that since I hadn’t had my weekly allotted “carb up” day, I should let myself have a little fruit. Specifically, my favorite breakfast for a warm day: avocado berry smoothie bowl with coconut milk, acai, flax, protein powder, etc. I still stayed below 60g net carbs for the day, but something about the sugary breakfast left me craving sugar all day–even despite the fact that my smoothie had plenty of fats, fiber, and proteins to prevent a total blood sugar spike. I couldn’t resist making a keto chocolate chip cookie at night since I’d been thinking about it all day, and I had a bit of a cheese-shopping spree after breakfast.
I want to be able to have a somewhat balanced diet and get enough fruit, but apparently doing so in the morning turns me into a snacking monster! More evidence for the benefits of low carb breakfasts…
Oh, and since I was lamenting the loss of my ability to have my cheese (vegan or otherwise) with crackers, I decided to do something about it: I made flax crackers. They’re delicious, especially considering how healthy they are!
