Our lives are so upside down right now, with “Shelter at Home Orders” and “6′ Distancing”, sometimes the last thing we want to thing about is our food.
More of us now than ever before are having to make choices for our health. Now just might be the best time in your life to start Keto. I have found over the last three years that it doesn’t take stress away, but it sure helps my head to deal with it better.
The reason for that is it clears the brain fog away and allows us to get healthy. I just got done reading an article about Rocco DiSpirto talking Keto Comfort Food (article from Woman’s World). Rocco has become a champion of Keto by developing low carb comfort food recipes to help someone stick to a low carb keto lifestyle.
Not only do you feel better physically, but also mentally, thus helping with dealing with stress at this time in our lives.
We’ve never lived in a time where we have had limits on travel and getting together with friends and family. And I hope we never experience this again in my lifetime. FaceTime, Marco Polo, Skype, Zoom, etc are all ways to help us get around not seeing people. They are all FREE as well so take advantage of them. This can help with stress as well.
Sometimes we just need to do things the old fashioned way – pick up the phone and call someone to hear their voice. It is amazing to me how many of us choose to just text instead of hearing someones voice. It really doesn’t take that much more time to sit and chat for a few minutes. It helps with stress because now you can sense in their voice how someone is holding up.
But seriously if you need comfort food, now’s the time to do a little research and realize that eating a low carb keto lifestyle isn’t that difficult and it’s really not that expensive. Plus for the most part there is always a great selection, because we don’t eat the junk food that everyone else eats.
Later in the week I’m going to post one of Rocco’s easy keto recipes. It is Keto Jalepeno poppers. Or if you’re like me and don’t like jalepeno’s that much you sub with the little orange and red and yellow sweet peppers.
So as we go through this time of challenge and change – grow a garden, ride a bike, go for a walk around the neighborhood, or learn to meditate. Do something you’re not used to doing because you’re so used to being busy all the time.
Stay safe and we’ll talk next week. Enjoy your time at home too – spring cleaning gives you such a sense of accomplishment. LOL.
Have a great week.
