This Keto Almond Pork Tenderloin Bites recipe is perfect for dinner and lunch the next day.
I love it when I make a recipe for dinner that I can go ahead and pack up in the kid’s lunch boxes for the following day.
Thankfully school is coming to an end, and I am so ready for summer break, but I still have about ten more days of keto lunch prep.
This recipe was a big hit, and prepping the pork tenderloin like this made it go a long way.
Before I started adding more fruits and veggies, my family of six would devour ten pounds of meat in one meal.
Well, I’m sure a ten-pound roast wasn’t a true ten pounds, but my wallet can’t tell the difference.
Thankfully with our new and improved keto lifestyle, my wallet is fatter, and my thighs are skinnier!
Yes, you read that right.
I am losing weight again.
I know it’s hard to believe, but by adding more carbs in the form of fruits and veggies (and, of course, fiber), I have managed to break through that dreaded keto plateau.
