What I Ate On The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse: Week 1

For the past week I have been doing The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse by Maria Emmerich. It is a clean way of eating the Ketogenic diet. You don't eat any dairy, nuts, nut flours, sweeteners or caffeine that you would normally eat on a keto diet. Eating this way puts you into ketosis faster and revs up your metabolism. I decided to try out the 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse again because I had great results on it last year.

During the ketogenic cleanse you have a small window to eat. You are fasting for about 18 hours and consume your food in 6 hours. I usually like to eat my first meal at 12pm and eat my second and third meal at 6pm. The food is full of good fats so I am don't feel hungry at all during the day. I was the type of person that always snacked at night while watching TV so this has been working really well.

Morning Meal: Like I said above when I am doing the Ketogenic Cleanse I like to start eating at 12pm but this day I had to eat earlier than that. I am taking some medication that requires me to take the medicine in with morning with food so I decided to have a couple of hard boiled eggs. Eggs is the easiest thing to fit into the rules of the ketogenic cleanse so I went with it. I drizzled some extra virgin olive oil on top for some extra fat and salt and pepper for taste.

Meal 1: Bacon And Egg Ramen. This has to be one of my favorite meals on the Ketogenic Cleanse. The broth alone is so flavorful that I could eat it by itself. The broth has loads of flavor from garlic, ginger, onions, coconut vinegar, and coco aminos.  It's fun to have the fixings of the zoodles which taste just like al dente noodles. The crispy pork belly gives it nice texture and the egg makes it super hardy. The green onion gives it a nice fresh taste.

Meal 2: Reuben Pork Chops. I crisped up a nice thick porkchop in a pan with salt and pepper. I put it on a bed of shredded cabbage and added some sauerkraut and homemade thousand island dressing on top. Who ever though sauerkraut and thousand island dressing would taste good on a porkchop?

Meal 3: Marinated Italian Mushrooms. These mushrooms are so flavorful and taste best room temperature. Lots of Italian herbs, garlic, onion and coconut vinegar gives it a nice punch.

You can eat all of this on The 30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse. Sometimes the recipes are time consuming and there are a lot of ingredients but it is so worth it. This food is so good and restaurant worthy.
