Being Filipino, it’s really been a challenge not to have rice, it’s a staple in every Filo home, we have it three times a day. A meal is not a meal without rice, and I don’t feel full if I don’t eat rice, or so it was before keto.
But I was saved by whoever genius it was who thought about using cauliflower as a replacement. So I came up with my low-carb, higher fat version of fried rice. Here are the stats:
Bearing in mind that a cup of jasmine rice (which is what I used to eat, but I ate 2 cups PER MEAL) is 205 calories, 185 of which comes from carbs. In fact, per cup, jasmine rice has 44.5 grams of carbs, that’s more than double the advised amount on keto, so I was actually eating at least 12 times the advised amount!!!
So what do you need to make my version of cauli fried rice? Here’s the list:

It’s the first day of the new year, 2019, and I know that there will be heaps of people declaring their resolutions. My problem with resolutions is that I do not have the self-discipline to follow-through. I, in fact, often self-sabotage when I am nearing my goals.
So I decided that the best way to make me accountable is to put it out there, to publish my current stats, and then look back at the end of every month to see whether I have made progress or not.
These stats were taken yesterday, 31st December 2018.
The goal is to have a waist of 75cm and weight of 125lbs by year-end. I know that doesn’t sound like much to lose, but believe me, losing that last bit is the toughest. So I am leaving this here, for everyone to see, and I will post an update every end of the month to see what progress, if any, has been made.
I will of course continue to exercise along with re-starting the keto diet (I’ve been slacking over the holidays and man am I paying for it now!), and will also be posting recipe experiments to be shared with everyone here!
Happy New Year!!!

It’s spring down-under and the best time to get started on your summer body…errr, I’m totally not ready for it. I have been on and off Keto, so my weight has also fluctuated and at this point, I have gained more than I lost…my bad.
So it’s time to get back on track, 1st of October, also the first day of The Great Cycle Challenge, where I’ve pledged to ride 100km in the month of October to help raise funds for kids’ cancer.
Anyway, if you want to watch what I do to re-start on Keto, click on the photo above for the video.
Back on the wagon and going strong!
I thought today I’d share with you my breakfast that is guaranteed to keep me full for at least 5-6 hours 🙂
Beverage of choice: English Breakfast Tea
2 slices of streaky bacon from my favorite deli place, cooked in full-fat butter!!!
Protein Pancake: cooked with my sandwich press 🙂
I don’t usually eat breakfast because I fast until at least 11AM, but I didn’t eat much last night and woke up really famished. I normally eat when I feel the hunger, I don’t follow a set time for meals, but I don’t eat anything after 7PM.
What are you having for breakfast today? Do you skip breakfast in favor of intermittent fasting?
