Coming from an Asian background, believe me when I say it was TOUGH having to cut rice out of my keto diet. Growing up, my family would prepare a side of rice with every single meal (yes, we would even eat our bacon and eggs with a side of rice!).
Do you ever find yourself missing your old morning routine? I’m talking about mixing up a big bowl of oats and catching up on the morning news, sipping on your coffee before heading in to work.
I remember growing up, bread was a staple part of my diet. Whether it was eggs with toast for breakfast, a sandwich in my school lunch, or a quick PB & J as a snack, I couldn’t go a day without eating bread!
I remember growing up, weekends were the only time my parents had time to cook a homemade breakfast. Before I went off to enjoy my Saturday morning cartoons, the house would have the scent of freshly made pancakes.
I remember growing up, my family would often dine at Vietnamese restaurants. The one thing that I always had to get, would be a sweet avocado smoothie (sinh to). Nothing beat sipping on a cold, thick avocado shake on a hot summer’s day, just after finishing a meal.
Coming from a Chinese culture, one of my fondest childhood memories would have to be eating dimsum on weekend mornings. I miss the warm atmosphere. With a cup of hot tea in hand, being surrounded by your family as you share all kinds of steamed goodies (majority of which are NOT keto friendly)
