Simple dinner tonight

I wasn’t really in the mood to cook anything “extravagant.” We’re out of baby Spinach leaves and regular tossed lettuce, so making a quick salad was out of the picture. I’ve had tuna two days in a row and I just didn’t want to get tired of tuna this early in my keto diet. We have had some Chicken thighs in the fridge for a few days so I figured I might as well cook one up. It was either that or nuke a Turkey burger and that just didn’t seem appetizing at the time.

Slathered the chicken thigh with cajun seasoning and some of JD’s Peppered Bacon Salt and cooked the thigh in a couple tablespoons of butter. Since I already scarfed down an avocado for lunch, I didn’t really have any other vegetables to add with the thigh so I boiled three eggs with it.

Fortunately, between the deliciously fatty skin and juicy meat, I only finished two of the boiled eggs. Was surprised because the portion felt really small but man, the skin alone from the thigh was starting to fill me up. I think what’s also helping a lot to curb my desire to stuff my face is that I have been drinking more water than I am used to. It’s really helping to fill me up so I have less desire to eat since I already feel partially full from that.

Next week I really do want to make actual meals that don’t consist of lettuce, tuna, ranch dressing and pepperoni. Might try the Gluten-free Crab Rangoons and Cheese Crust Pizza.

Oh, also I tried out some Redditor’s tip on a quick and filling ‘desert snack.’ 1 TBSP Peanut Butter and 1oz cream cheese mixed together. It was so rich and creamy that it took me ~30 minutes to eat the succulent glob of heaven.
