Dinner pic – chicken skewers edition

Had lunch at a sushi place. Living a ketogenic lifestyle means you’re probably not ordering regular sushi. So I opted for chicken skewers, soup, a salad, and one avocado hand roll which did have some rice but really hit the spot.

I’m still figuring out how to eat out (especially difficult cultural cuisines) and keep keto.

Zoodles

Spaghetti dinner tonight was done with a mix of NuPasta konjac noodles and zoodles. That’s zucchini spirals which I cook a little to soften and then use them just like regular noodles. They’re great as a noodle substitute; in Italian or Asian dishes.

Two Christmases ago I received a spiralizer and use it a few times a month. Zucchini is the main thing I put through it but have also done other veg.

You can get handheld spiralizers, attachments for food processors and stand mixers, or table top ones. I have the latter and it looks like this:

Some grocery stores also sell spiralized veg pre-packaged. Though pricy, it’s useful and convenient. Do you spiral?

Egg roll in a bowl.

No recipe per se. Sautéed mushrooms and onions with garlic, ginger, toasted sesame oil, soy sauce, and added ground pork and a bag of shredded veg with broccoli and cabbage (it’s marketed as a type of ‘coleslaw mix’). Added in Konjac rice, and topped with peanuts, green onion, and hot sauce. It was perfection.

This is the konjac rice product. It costs more than regular rice but I pick it up when on sale (usually online). I like it better than the NuPasta konjac long noodles.
