I asked what everyone was making for dinner – the responses surprised me!

I chose to pick up a small beef roast and pop it into the slow cooker the other day – it came out incredible (It’s hard to screw up a slow cooker meal) and the whole family was happy.  yay!  So I asked the group, LCHF on Facebook what they were making – here are some of the results.  What surprised me was the amount of actual COOKING going on in the middle of the week (I posted on a Thursday)!

Filet Mignon topped with Mozzarella, 3 Fried Eggs and homemade Guacamole

2 Amazing LCHF groups and a very useful macro chart!

I stumbled across the Facebook group, LCHF – Low Carb High Fat the other day while looking for some inspiration for dinner that night.  What I found was something I haven’t seen since the 90’s…a group of passionate and friendly people completely focused on Low Carb (with a twist of High Fat). Throughout the 2000’s I felt as though the ‘scene’ became jaded and lost, it seemed more focused on finding the perfect snack bar instead of helping someone through induction.  Well, that aside, A woman named Beth posted the following graphic (click to enlarge and right-click to save)

BUT, after I posted this blog it came to my attention that the graphic was designed by Raymund Edwards who started the Facebook group Optimal Ketogenic Living. At 10,000+ members it is another LCHF/Ketogenic powerhouse of information! Optimal Ketogenic Living was described to me as THE place to find the science to back up the macros, find support and learn about fitness.  Do yourself a favor and head over there and join!  I did!

This chart will get you jump started into what your macro for LCHF should be!  A macro in case you don’t know is the breakdown of Carbs / Fat / Protein that you should consume to maintain or lose weight.  Look up your height and get started!

Another post that got me tonight was from a poster named Chris (please contact me if you would like to be linked to this story), he posted magical looking Scotch Eggs and said this was how he made them,

Started the eggs in cold water over medium heat. Removed and chilled them after they boiled 4 minutes. I peeled them after they were in the frig a few hours. Wrapped them with Italian sausage and left them in the frig overnight. The next day I cooked them at 375 degrees until the sausage was done.”

Simply amazing and an inspiration!

At over 15,000 members you can imagine the amount of posts they get daily but it’s all really from a  great bunch.  I look forward to the many ideas I will get here  Check them out
