Since I started up this diet thing again over the recent months, it’s not as successful as the it was at the beginning of the year. I’m not looking at this as failure. It’s just an opportunity to refine it. So, to do this, I did some cooking today.
Firstly, last year I bought half a cow. I have so much ground beef it’s ridiculous. Since I’m on such a burger kick lately i figure why not make some patties that i can pull out the freezer and make when ever i want. So much easier to pre-make the patties, and also cheaper to make than going to Wendy’s, Burger King, or McDonald’s and buying bunless burgers.
Secondly, I forgot that along with this cow, i had this huge steak in my freezer. Grilled that up and was able to cut it down into 3 normal size steaks to enjoy over the never couple days.
Lastly, and the best thing of all, I finally made Keto Nuggets!!! A buddy of mine was so kind to buy me a tub of pork rinds so i would have a good Keto Snack alternative to anything else that I would normally snack on. I was never been a huge fan of pork rinds, but since i started this diet, they kind of grew on me. It’s the same as the Keto Brownie someone made me once. You grow to enjoy the taste your not normal to. So thanks guys for being supportive and helping me out.
So, i was asked for the recipe for these Keto Nuggets, and it’s kind of hard to give you something exact because i didn’t measure a damn thing haha. But this is the simplest way i can share it. I cooked mine i the air fryer…. i recommend you get one
What you need:
2 – large Chicken breast (cut into equal nugget size pieces)
1 – Egg
1/2 Cup – Almond Flour
1 Cup – Mayo
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Paprika for Season
First, you need to combine the Cut up Chicken and seasonings into a Bowl and mix well. The seasonings is going to have to be your preference on flavor. I love a garlic flavor so i add more. Just make sure the chicken is covered and mix up. Then add the Egg, Mayo, and Flour to the bowl and mix it all up. set it aside for about 20min.
Then take a bunch or pork rinds and put it through a food processor to make it into a bread crumb appearance. Again the amount of Rind Crumbs will depend on how much chicken you plan to make. You also want to put the seasoning in the crumbs (minus the salt cause rinds have enough of that)
That each piece of Chicken and coat it in the rind crumbs and place the pieces in the Air Fryer. Don’t overlap and leave a little space between the pieces. Set the air fryer to 375 and set timer for 10-12 min.
And That’s it! it was super easy to make and i enjoy them by themselves, or with buffalo sauce or ranch.
And like i said, i didn’t take exact measurements on these things, so just use the same ingredients and you’ll be fine.
I posted a picture of the in the Freakin Journey Facebook page, so if you follow that you can see how they turned out.
Please share any recipes you have!!
So far the best tasting thing I have had was these Keto Lemon Squares Someone made me. Hopefully i can find that recipe and make those again.
I have been blessed to have so many good people involved in this journey. No matter if it’s been this whole time, or if they were about of it for a brief moment, an impact is an impact.
I know i am not alone in this journey. And i hope you know you aren’t either.
Accountability and Progress
