Lose weight with taste: ketomenu for Friday from Olena Islamkina
We were taught that breakfast is the main meal of the day. It turned out that this slogan was invented by the manufacturers of cornflakes for breakfast. We were told to count calories and cut out fat. It turned out that “we don’t get fat from fat, just like we don’t get greener from spinach,” and the research that formed the basis of anti-fat dietary recommendations was sponsored by sugar magnates. We were told that we should “not eat and move more.” It turned out that this formula was invented at the Big Soda research center. The keto diet looks like a solid holiday of disobedience: we eat when we are hungry, until we are full, do not have snacks and easily skip meals. Olena Islamkina is the author of the book “Keto diet. How to live long and think fast ”and the creator of the healthy lifestyle project cilantro.ru proposes to go on Friday spree in ketostyle – we give breakfast to the enemy, and for dinner we eat without guilt – Friday pizza.
Cabbage with minced meat
Fatty minced meat – 500 g
Head of cabbage – 1/2
Spices (such as cumin)
The best option is to find a farm products store that sells beef from mostly grass-fed cows or lamb (these animals always walk in nature), and ask them to make you fatty mince. If your meat is fairly lean, add more ghee when frying. So, fry the minced meat, add cumin and other favorite spices. Put thinly chopped cabbage on top, cover with a lid, put on medium heat. When the cabbage is ready, season generously with salt, stir and serve with sour cream.
For the basics:
Mozzarella for pizza (not the one that floats in solution) – 200 g
2 tbsp. l. fatty soft cheese
3/4 cup almond flour
salt to taste (the salinity of the cheese may be sufficient)
For the sauce:
Homemade Tomato Salsa Cilantro
50 g of any melting cheese, you can use the same mozzarella
Start with a sauce if you don’t have stock. It is better not to use store options and ketchups, they most often contain sugar. The sauce can be made while the pizza base is baking, but you have to do it very quickly. This is an option for advanced cooks. Put the oven to heat up to 220 degrees. Grate the mozzarella, mix with two tablespoons of soft cheese and flour, put in the microwave for a minute to maximum. Stir the melted mass, put on for another 30 seconds. Now we need to act very quickly. Until the mass begins to solidify, stir in the egg with a fork, pour the mass onto a sheet of baking paper. Cover with a second sheet, roll. Do not set yourself the task of achieving a perfect circle, it is difficult to accomplish. Remove the top sheet of parchment. Then send the base to the oven for 12-15 minutes. If you want it to be crisper, you can turn it over after 15 minutes and let it stand for another 3-5 minutes. Remove the base from the oven, spread with sauce, sprinkle with cheese, crumble the ingredients on top, send to bake for another 3 minutes – until the cheese melts. Decorate with the rest of the ingredients that do not need to be cooked, for example, jamon and spinach, I put on the ready-made pizza.
