It’s been quite a week over here. We were thrust into a new routine and I thought for half of a second that I had a grasp on it. I was very wrong. And my whole mood has just been ‘off.’ I need a major reset of attitude, mentality, and health. And what better way to do so than trying out a new Keto Sauteed Kale, Prosciutto, and Fried Egg Recipe!
I’m not doing a keto diet, but I am still doing intermittent fasting. In truth, this pandemic has not been helpful to that lifestyle. I’ve been eating a lot of processed foods. And I know I’m not alone. I’m aware that most of us have been struggling with stress and anxiety throughout recent months. So why not do a little reset, whether it be physical, mental, emotional, or all of the above?
Intermittent Fasting and Meals
I’ve talked about my decision to try intermittent fasting a little bit here. But, again, I definitely got ‘off track’ in recent months. But now that I’m ‘resetting’ I will be back to a 20/4 cycle. Basically, that means I fast for 20 hours and keep my ‘eating window’ open for approximately four hours a day.
It’s really important to end your fast with something that will fuel your body. And that’s why this keto sauteed kale, prosciutto and fried egg recipe is so perfect. It balances out the need for protein and leafy greens, but it’s also so delicious (which I can tell you after a fast, you want something yummy).
“Are you eating for 4 hours straight?”
I am absolutely not eating for four hours straight. But if I’m hungry again in that four hour window, I will have another meal or snack. If I make this particular recipe to break my fast, I will likely eat again nearing the end of the four hour mark. Like I’ve said, it’s a great meal to break my fast with, but it’s not so heavy that I can’t eat again.
What you’ll need for this recipe
This recipe is honestly super easy. I grabbed some prosciutto at Trader Joe’s, but it can be found anywhere. You’ll definitely need a couple of eggs, fresh kale, and olive oil. That’s it!
