Friday Food – Big S Salad (and Veggie Thief on the Loose in Petersburg)

Mark (of MDA) has a large keto-friendly salad every day. My husband got the idea for this from MDA and for the longest time I thought Mark called it the Big “S” salad – but I guess he calls it his daily “Big Ass Salad” – ha – think I will stick to the Big S.

 

Here is my favorite morning meal this month – so dense and satisfying – eggs, Swiss Cheese, tomato, avocado, sea salt – cooked in a good olive oil (or sometimes butter).
WRIC Video is HERE – at first I thought – “Share veggies with this man…” But I guess the thief was uprooting plants and just tossing them aside. But the story title is funny, isn’t it?

 

Hope you have a nice Friday.

    1. Hi A… let’s see – mostly the same things – spinach – walnuts (or some other nuts), feta cheese, diced cucumber, tomato, hard-boiled egg, pieces of chicken (thigh meat) and strawberries. Maybe red pepper – we usually buy the freshest seasonal veggies and fruits

  1. I also enjoy a Big S Salad several times a week. This week, Greek 🙂 Your egg dish looks good!
    I’d never heard of blackberries used for indigo color. I kinda know a lot about dye/paint/pigment, and I just don’t think that’s right.
    I had learned bananas are not only herbs, but berries, too.
    I’d rather eat bananas and blackberries than do anything else with them! 😛

    1. Well I am with YOU on a few times a week – I just cannot have salad every day – not in the mood.
      and also with ya on the blackberries – I heard that were other plants used for indigo…. but I am sure any staining berry could have been tapped.
      I still scratch my head about banana – I get the berry thing – seeds and all – but why the herb?

    1. Thanks sha – and we share that commonality of not loving salad (but like it enough to have some) and thanks for getting the joke – 😅 – I don’t eat rice too much anymore by when I used to – I loved “dirty rice” – our version was fried rice with misc stuff added

      1. Ahh I guess I’m just used to having rice w all our meals here…it’s a necessity…but I do try to cut down on it because it’s not good to eat too much all the time…😊 Dirty rice sounds like an apt description of fried rice w misc ingredients…haha

    1. That is a good question – hubs just said “probably not” if it’s a grain.
      I eat it once in a while – but I’m not die hard keto – I had to eat for bioterrain health – but he is die-hard keto –
      And your daily lunch salad sounds like a good routine – mmmmm

      1. yeah – I looked it up while replying to you – even though I sorta knew about it cos we were eating it last year with salads – anyhow, in my understanding it is “a whole-grain food” because the “seeds are processed” = ((but I am still learning here too)_
        however, I think that quinoa is an overpriced for what you get:
        “After cooking, which is the typical preparation for eating, quinoa is 72% water, 21% carbohydrates, 4% protein and 2% fat”
        but if folks like it – then hey – enjoy it.
        However, the keto-evangelist site they say no, no fluffy puppy – – here:
        https://www.ketovangelist.com/5-non-carb-foods-you-absolutely-must-avoid/

        “Okay. Quinoa (pronounced: keen-wah) is a grain harvested in South America and has recently been labeled a “superfood”. I have had conversations with people, ketogenic people, who will insist that quinoa is not a carb, but, instead, that it’s a protein. This is because quinoa is VERY high in protein. For a grain. It has 24g of protein per cup. It also has 109g of carbs per cup. I’m not a math person, but I’m pretty sure that the ratio of carbs to protein is 4:1, so that makes it a carb, not a protein. But for those people who insist that it is a “superfood” and “high in protein”, I say this: Get rid of it. It must be removed.”

      2. Well the turmeric sounds good!! Mmm
        And don’t feel like you have to reply in length – but I had a minute to reply and here is how we went keto (in a nut shell):
        – yes – his goal was to lose weight and get fit. After 18 months of daily workouts (lots of cardio ) he was not seeing much body change – puzzled – then got a trainer – Jason Lacey in RVA – who started him in right direction with huge suggestion to track intake and aim to lower carbs to 30grams per day (
        Then he used the app “my fitness pal” –
        And “shortcut to shred” app –
        But the real success for him came with marks daily apple info (who I have followed off and on since 2014)
        170 grams of fat
        135 grams of protein
        30 grams of carbs
        5% of the calories are carbs –
        Anyhow – he saw results within one week and has tapered off but he works out different and eats different and has the resubhlts he wanted –
        Thanks for asking Lisa –
        I am going to make some posts about going keto –
        But not sure when – hopefully soon
        – and for me – I accidentally went keto because I had to rebuild my bioterrian and that was he path that helped me do it – it also cleaning my gut and using supplements –
        And last tidbit
        Some people SLAM the idea of keto and I have to watch where I mention it – seriously – it is like people defend their carbs to the max
        And one sweet friend even said “but we need carbs for our fuel”
        However – in keto – u become fat adapted and use fats and proteins as a fuel – it is a paradigm shift for the body and it can take a while to adjust – and my spouse had a few times of feeling the keto flu (but all healing changes can have a healing crisis or herxheimer reaction and so we go slow and adjust )
        And so here is what I tell anyone who wants to know more about ketogenic lifestyle –
        Check out marks daily apple blog
        And if a person slams the idea of keto – well all I have to say is that if what they are doing is working for them – keep doing it – seriously – eat their pasta and bread and grains and thru e – but
        If someone is ill – this eating plan could be part of their medicine –
        Ketogenic diet has been shown to help folks reduce eipileptic fits – helps with malabsorption problems (often from systemic fungal inefectione) and can be a huge part of cancer remission (cos many cancers – not all – but many – feed on sugar and carbs are processed in the body as sugar) – I also like the bulketproof blog and for me – LOGOS multivitamins were a catalyst for my health – I get no perk for name dropping – this is just what has worked for us – and the thymic formula vitamins from logos helped me rebuild me bio terrain cos – but so did herbs and many other trial and error experimenting –
        Lastly – my favorite item this last few months has been “acetyl l carnintie” which Trader Joe’s sells for five dollars ☺️ Omg does my body LOve it
