Keto Bucket List

Tomorrow we got to the hospital for a 3 day admission to get Matt on the Ketogenic Diet, so this weekend has been Carb Fest 2012.  We wanted him to be able to have all of the stuff he loves before starting Keto because he might not get to have it again for a very long time if we can't find a low-carb, high-fat equivalent.

Friday we got him Mac and Cheese from Kentucky Fried Chicken, which is his absolute favorite thing ever.  One bite and the kiddo couldn't stop smiling, he was in total cheesy, carb-filled bliss.  Saturday we got him a cupcake, which he has never had before. He liked the initial bites of buttercream icing, but quickly lost interest. For dinner that night we got New York style cheese pizza, a food he just recently was allowed to start having. He was so excited, he was smiling and dancing in his high chair the entire time. This morning, he got to have pancakes for breakfast. Out of all the yummy stuff he got to eat this weekend, my mother-in-law topped it all today with her spaghetti and meatballs. I am praying that the dietitian can help us find an equivalent to that meal, because the kiddo could live off her spaghetti and meatballs.

If you had one weekend to eat anything you loved before starting a super restrictive diet for possibly 3-5 years, what would be on your bucket list? Why?

  1. I love a good carb fest! And Lily essentially does the Paleo Diet (for lack of a better term) and I never realized how much carb we actually eat everyday.

    OK - my guilty foods that I would want to eat before having to give them up: chips & queso, chicken & dumplings, corn dogs, those nasty mozzarella sticks from Sonic make me very happy, and are you ready for this? I'm almost embarrassed to write it down - filet of fish sandwiches from McDonalds. I know they are horrible and will kill me, I'm sure, but I get the weirdest craving for them every now and then.

    OK - now I feel like I should go eat some carrots or something.

    Good luck with the diet!
