This is why Allies are so important in any social change.  If you're an Ally then "come out of the closet" as one so we can get to this place too.

Keto Diet Day 3 & my favourite kitchen appliance

Was a Monday (yesterday in Australia) - Was diligent at work (diet wise) and was tracking well to be under 20g for the day.

After picking up my wife and getting home I offered to cook dinner.
We have this cool little thing that looks a bit like a rice-cooker but it's called a multi-cooker. It has a removable non-stick pot with a plastic steaming tray (link to details at the end of the post).

I had bought some skinless Atlantic Salmon on the weekend and portioned it in vacuum sealed bags before freezing. We were both pretty hungry so I opened up three bags and put the frozen portions on the steamer tray (after adding 2 cups of water), seasoning on top, then added a bunch of brocolini. Close the lid and set to cook fish by steam for 20 minutes (that's the default setting btw).

That all took under two minutes to do. Then I can go about my evening routine until the multi-cooker beeps (loudly). Pop the top and call my wife and heat some butter (for her) and rice-bran margarine (me) so we can dip the brocolini tops into it.

Served with a drizzle of rice-bran oil (I use this for almost everything cause I watch my cholesterol closely) salt and pepper this is most definitely my favourite meal. Quick too.

BUT: I was using MyFitnessPal on my phone to track yesterday's carbs (as suggested on a different reddit post) and after tracking back why I was over I found out that brocolini has more carbs in it than I thought. Yesterday I came in at 24g. So close but I'm still going through "induction" so I'm still getting used to all the changes.

While this related to an item posted about the USA it is increasingly relevant to Australia and covers many of the points well...
