There are many good sources where one can find recipes, videos, and photos of food. This blog is not generally one. “Casey is a lazy cook” is an oft-repeated phrase around our house. And, as a rule, my recommendation is to step away from images of food, to recognize that our lives shouldn’t and needn’t revolve around eating. One of the great benefits of the ketogenic diet (burning fat for fuel rather than sugar) is that one’s appetite is naturally suppressed, freeing us from intrusive thoughts of what we’ll eat next. Food is no longer the boss of us. (Hey, that sounds like a catchy slogan for a shirt.)
But ultimately, we do need to eat. So preparation that is fast and straightforward is key, because, you know, lazy.
This soup fits the bill and is really delicious to boot. The ingredients are whatever you like. A little more of this, a bit less of that. The main idea is warm, tasty broth with eggs dribbled in. I usually add scallions and chicken but change it up depending on what I have on hand.
Give it a try!
Disclaimer: I’m not a medical doctor, researcher or PhD but rather a I’ve been fortunate to have had the time and resources to research the ketogenic diet, also known as LCHF (low carb/high fat). The information I share is based solely on my understanding of that research. We are all responsible for our own choices, including what we put in our mouths and there’s no substitute for each of us checking things out ourselves. And I’m not a medical professional in any way. Go Keto With Casey is not a medical site. “Duh,” you might say. But best to make it clear to all. I welcome questions, comments and even civil criticism. I’m still learning.
