Keto Grilled Cheese? Yes Please.

Personal update: My weight loss has stalled and I am actually starting to get super frustrated after a couple weeks of dropping really quickly and now I am just stalled. I almost let myself have a cheat day this weekend out of frustration but I held my ground and decided that this next week I will be making some changes to start seeing progress again.

This week my goal was to find a replacement for bread because I have been missing bread lately. I found this recipe for 90 second keto microwave bread. It was super simple to make. It took me about 5 minutes in total- a few minutes to toss the ingredients together and a few to cook it. Since I didn’t have a 4×4 microwavable container I just used a mug and it worked very well!

First, all I did was dump the ingredients as listed on the recipe into the mug and whisk it together.

This is what it looked like after I microwaved it. I was a little nervous about the texture so I decided to toast it and turn it into a grilled cheese.

I cut it in half, added cheese, and put some butter on the bottom of a pan.

The bread was getting really toasty but the cheese wasn’t melting because the bread was too think so I covered it with a plate to make the cheese melt faster.

The finished product! I eat a lot of egg salad just on its own without the bread because it is made from all keto friendly foods! I will definitely be making this 90 second bread again, but I plan on slicing it thinner and using it for 2 servings! Maybe I will make an egg salad sandwich next time.

KETO FAIL #1- I also made this “Egg Roll in a Bowl” recipe that is otherwise known as “Crackslaw” that everyone in the keto community RAVES about. Long story short, I think I did something terribly wrong because it did not taste at all like an egg roll and tasted more like plain taco beef with cabbage in a bowl.  No pictures because I’m an airhead and was more focused on getting the food to my stomach than the pictures to my phone. I challenge someone to try this recipe and let me know how it works so I know if it was just me who royally messed this up. #SOS.

My goal for next week is to start weighing all of my food and recording it to the exact gram to see if that affects the scale at all. I also have to remind myself that the number on the scale is not the only factor. Its also about how you feel, how your clothes fit, and so much more! I am also terribly and awfully out of shape so I am going to start tossing in some at home workouts because exercise honestly heals my soul, so it is time to get my sweat on. Trying to stay positive on this journey and I will say that it makes it easier to be held accountable by this blog! Maybe the #learningproject might be the key to my success.

See y’all next week!!

  2. I love the truth to this post. I like that you talk about how your goal has stalled, but know their is always going to be a few plateau’s and frustrations along the way. Great job on not giving up ( i probably would have). I love the visuals you posted and the video made me laugh. Great post and dont give up!

  3. LOL at your keto fail. I’m also keto, and something I CANNOT stand is the taste of artificial sweetner in things, so needless to say my meals don’t get spiced up a lot. Interesting mug bread though, that’s something I’m definitely going to have to try!! Also, kudos to you for taking pictures of your food and not having it turn out looking like garbage on your plate…. because that’s always what it looks like on mine.

  4. This microwave bread is definitely intriguing. Thanks for sharing about your struggles and feeling stalled. I know so many of us can feel this way when trying to make new lifestyle changes and it can be super frustrating… I definitely feel the same way and a little off track this week. Also loved hearing about your KETO FAIL, I have definitely had my share of recipe failure.
    Can’t wait to hear about how next week goes!
