National Pig Day

National Pig Day

Did you know there is an actual “National Pig Day?” I didn’t! But what a fun day to celebrate with your Keto family!? The candy companies made Valentine’s day and Easter and Halloween a disaster.

I think this Keto community should make a special day out of National Pig Day!

National Pig Day

I jokingly wrote on Keto Adapted Facebook wall that I wasn’t going to plant a garden last year because all my boys seem to like is bacon and I said too bad I can’t grow “bacon seeds.” Someone posted this photo in a comment. How cute!?

I gave this shirt to Craig as a gift because it combines his two favorite things in life… bacon and science! Click HERE to find my favorite Bacon shirt!

“I would like to thank Maria and Craig!

In 2016, I was desperate. I was DOWN to 230 from 260+ but couldn’t lose more. I had tried every diet. At age 62, I had lost 100 lbs at least 4 times in my life (coming from an obese family). I needed a knee replacement and spinal lumbar surgery. Then I started hearing about Keto and Maria’s name popped up.

I checked out her credentials and took a chance on a consultation. That started my new way of eating/life. It was hard to change the way I saw food but, most of all, control my sugar addiction (which will always be a part of me). Honestly, there have been ups and downs. Sometimes, I’ve had periods of childish resentment, wanting to have unlimited sweets 24-7. That ended up with a 75 lb gain before I wrestled control back from my addiction. You learn a lot from these set-backs! Addiction never goes away.

But back to the point, Maria gave me all of the knowledge and support that became the basis for my Keto way of life. To this day, it still helps me weed through the true and false info I read on line! I love how she has Keto community spirit and has led me to some great women bloggers with great recipes. My current weight is 123 lbs, ht is 5’3”, BMI 21.8. I take less medication. No longer pre- diabetic.

Thank you. You changed my life. God bless!” – Pam

    Hubby and I made a raid on the local Asian grocery store–the family that owns it raise their own pigs (fed by leftover produce from the store), butcher them, and sell the parts. We must’ve bought enough pork belly and pig feet (for broth) to re-assemble an entire pig! We also buy chicken feet (chickens also raised and fed the same produce), sambal sauce, and canned coconut milk (Aroy D by the case) from them.

    Last month, I discovered a Caribbean grocery store that carried bagged chunks (bigger than stew size) of lamb, goat, smoked turkey, and ox meat–all with BONES STILL IN, and cut lengthwise, so the marrow parts were exposed! I bought one of each bag, and distributed the four kinds of meat among 4 zippy bags to make a ready-to-go broth assortment. That’s when I noticed that goat meat did awful things to my blood sugar for some reason–next time I go, I’m steering clear of the goat meat.

    Other than that, the broth was to die for. I signed up for the upcoming Wellness Summit so I could see and hear you for myself.

    Happy pig day! Speaking of pigs, I ordered some leaf lard yesterday (fatworks had this great sale!!) along with their new chicken schmaltz and beef tallow. Your KFC biscuit recipe uses butter in it, and I’ve heard that leaf lard makes really good crumbly biscuits (along with tasty pie crusts). Do you think some leaf lard would make the biscuits even better? 🙂

    Thank you for this pork post. We have a whole pig in the freezer and now I have menu planning inspirations!!! Happy Pig Day!
