    Yes, baby butter lettuce! For the filling I first season the ground chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, a little cumin, adobo, and onion powder. I also add about two tablespoons of garlic paste. I then chop up one bell pepper, an onion, some scallions and jalapeño and add it to the chicken. It tastes great with fresh squeezed lime! Next week I plan on doing chicken lettuce wraps again but with chicken thighs cooked in my new ninja air fryer Heres a pic of the lettuce wraps I posted on this thread a while back:

    For lunch today I made some avocado toast on keto bread and topped it with chunk light tuna. Just used fresh lemon juice and salt and pepper for the tuna. I was super hungry and made two but one did the job.

    There's still so much to do but I finally have a grip on my food. I stopped tracking calories in the Carb Manager app late September since that was when we started moving and yesterday was the first day I began tracking again. Thankfully I haven't gained but I'm still not where I would like to be. I'm hoping to get to my goal weight by the end of 2021. Fingers crossed!

    Our Christmas celebration was on the 26th this year and we hosted. I’m still trying to recover from all that cooking. I made pineapple ham, pernil (roasted pork shoulder) , rice, chicken Madeira, garden salad, potato salad, lasagna, stuffed mushrooms, jalapeño poppers, cod cakes, a charcuterie board, mini avocado toasts topped with Cajun shrimp and for desert I made an orange cake, Peruvian hot chocolate, and chocolate covered strawberries. I bought baklava, Christmas cookies and paneton. Not sure if it’s just me but everytime I cook I lose my appetite. I sat there and watched everyone eat and after they left I ate from the charcuterie board, had some hot chocolate, and went straight to sleep lol Here are some pics I managed to take:

    Breakfast/lunch was scrambled eggs w/ avocado toast and bacon and dinner was another soup. This time I made sopa de albóndigas (meatball soup) with chickpea pasta and tons of veggies. Used ground turkey for the meatballs.

    Breakfast was super filling so I ended up skipping lunch. Had an omelette minus the slice of toast and butter which was for my bf and dinner was homemade chicken soup.

    Ingredients: Country style ribs or pork loin 1 tbsp of peanut butter 2 packets of Sazon Goya 1 bag of Papa seca (Sun dried potatoes) 1 1/2 tbsp aji panca 1 1/2 tbsp aji Amarillo 1 onion Pepper Garlic powder Adobo Cumin 1 chicken cube 1 beef cube salt 1. Season meat and set aside. 2. In a frying pan roast the papa seca on medium heat without any oil or anything, just consistently stir. Once it starts to turn a light brown color turn off the stove 3. In a bowl put hot water and dump the papa seca in the water and let it soak. Make sure the waters covers the papa. 4. In a pan fry garlic and onions and then add aji panca and aji Amarillo. Keep mixing the base then add a cube of chicken and beef. 5. Season your base with above seasonings plus add two packets of Sazon Goya. Add a little water it the base gets too dry. 6. Once base is cooked drain the papa seca and then add it to the pan. Mix base and papa seca well then add some water. Add enough water that the papa seca is fully cover. Let it boil for 15 minutes with the cover on. 7. Add the meat to the pan and mix everything together. Add water and salt if needed. Add a spoon of creamy peanut butter, once meat is half way cooked and place the lid on the pan to let it finish cooking. 8. Check on the mixture and stir when needed. I’ve attached pics of the ingredients that you might not be familiar with. I usually buy them from my local Latin American grocery store but you could probably find them on Amazon. While looking for a pic of the papa seca I found an article explaining exactly what it is. https://www.apec2016.pe/what-is-papa-seca/

    Starting to cook some more again. Made a pork chop, beans and a salad for myself and Carapulcra (Afro-Peruvian pork stew with sun dried potatoes) for my bf. Took a few bites of his stew and ate half of my dish. @GreenTealael and the move went good but we are still unpacking

    It’s crazy how much one can miss from this thread in just a few days! I honestly feel like I’ve been gone forever lol. These past few days, and even weeks have been something else. The positive is that I purchased my first home 🏡 and the negative is that Ive been eating crap almost everyday. Due to the move I’ve been buying out and just finding things I can eat on the go. I haven’t been able to cook in some time now and I really miss my own food 😢 I’ve had pasta which I haven’t had since wls, as well as regular crust pizza, white rice, fast food sandwiches (minus the bread since I’ve always hated bread) and just really quick and heavy carb and fat foods. We just finished moving in yesterday and now the unpacking begins. I managed to find a pot so this morning I went out and bought myself an avocado and made my avo toast with a boiled egg. I’m trying not to beat myself up about this but it’s been tough. I keep thinking I permanently ruined my eating habits. Im hoping things will go back to normal once I unpack. Here are some random pics of food I managed to make in between the moving with whatever I had in the fridge as well as some take out pics. Oh ... and today’s avo toast 😎 I hope this transparency helps!

    Of course I place the chicken in a huge bowl and season it with salt, pepper, a tiny bit of cumin, and lots of garlic powder. I then squeeze in tons of fresh lemon juice, basically until the chicken looks almost submerged in it, and add about 4 gloves of chopped garlic to the mixture. I’ll then leave it overnight and grill it whole then slice it up after that way it retains more juice. For the salad I use what’s shown in the pic (romaine, low fat feta, black olives, cucumbers, and tomatoes) red onions are usually good in a Greek salad too. For dressing I just used a store bought. I don’t know why but the only dressing I’m super picky with is Greek lol this is the one I use if you were wondering:

    Dinner last night was a tuna melt on zero carb bread inspired by all the beautiful sandwiches @GreenTealael makes. My bf ate the other half for me.

    Used four eggs and separated the whites from the yolks. Added the yolks to the tuna and seasoned with salt, lemon pepper, parsley, a little garlic powder, and added chopped onions. I then beat the egg whites until they were fluffy and folded them in the tuna mixture. To cook them I just spooned the mixture on a pan with some olive oil spray. Note: you really don’t have to separate the whites from the yolk but I do this because it makes for a more light airy patty vs a dense one.
