Yumminess in a Bun

Yumminess in a Bun

Now look at this beauty! The reason I share this picture is the way this burger looks. Usually they look like a total mess when they arrive at your home, but this one, for some strange reason looks like on the menu picture. It amazed the living daylight outta me, so I had to share it. I’ll not tell you from where this burger comes from but if you really want you can eventually figure it out. =p

Such a burger is the exception for me, since I live keto/low carb and sugar free since years, but ones a month or every other month I treat myself with fast food. It’s good for the soul and as long as you keep it a exception your body can handle it just fine. And believe it or not but the bun is the bad part, if you remove it you have something low carb and depending on the dressings it might even be keto.

So, what’s your favorite “cheat” item? Have a pawesome day and be safe out there. ❤

Grocery Inspection

So I was doing the weekly grocery today. Due to renovation work my usual grocery market is closed for a few weeks and so I have to go to the local Aldi. As every week I needed my crispbread. I was standing in front of the shelve and there where two brands standing side by side (ya, there isn’t much of a choice when you buy at Aldi, that’s why I don’t like to go there, but that is not the point). One brand was from a traditional Swedish company. They do nothing than crispbread (tons of different types) since 1919. So you bet, they know their stuff. The packaging is just paper. The other brand is Aldis “own” production (Aldi did not make it and you can’t really tell where it is coming from, so could be a really bad source), organic, looked really yummi, lots of seeds on every slice. I can tell because it was packed in plastic (you know how much I hate plastic, right).

Now something amazing happened, despite my mistrust for Aldi owned brands and hate for plastic I reached for the organic crispbread, simply because it is organic. That lasted about five seconds and then my mind beat my instinct and I looked at the nutrition values of both products. Oh boy, I was in for a huge surprise.

One slice of the Swedish crispbread has 8 g carbs, one slice of the organic Aldi own brand has 35 g carbs!!! What the heck! Seriously Aldi? And there I thought it’s impossible to screw over crispbread, but it seems you even managed that. I’m so glad my regular grocery market reopens next week.
