Orange Chicken - Keto Glutenfree Free Low Carb
Every New Years we do Chinese food, it’s just what we do. Even last year while being keto we planned it as a cheat meal. And while it tastes delicious it leaves me feeling crappy, tired, and 30 mins later-hungry😆. This year I decided to stay in and make my Chinese food, keto style! And HOLY CRAP was it good! My husband literally licked the bowl clean 🙄I have been able to be successful on keto for over a year and a half and hit goal weight because I can have delicious food like this! Good whole food that fits my macros! ———— 🎉—————
