A rainy and windy Halloween here, too. I have no plans except to stay inside and possibly dole out huge amounts of candy to any kiddos that brave the storm to come by. (That candy was purchased en masse at Costco before my restart...lucky kids!) The rest goes to coworkers.

AHEM! Anyway, today marks my 5th day of clean-as-a-whistle low carbin', and I am feeling great! I woke up at 5:30 AM inexplicably, though. Must be all that ENERGY! Hah, I doubt it...but hey, could be.

Today's menu, still in the style of one-meal-a-day intermittent fasting WARRIOR DIET, etc. Whatever you want to call it.

I'm currently enjoying a dark-roast cup of coffee and water. Tonight, however, will be...wait for it...

HALLOWEEN PORK BUTT

...or just regular pork butt. Made a rub of, hmm 50% kosher salt, then filled in the blanks with smoked paprika, a little bit of cayenne, and some freshly-ground black pepper.

Put it in the oven at 6:30 AM, will eat whenever I get home from work, after a 20 minute or so rest. With half of my portion, I am going to make baked pesto-cheese pork peppers.

Slice orange bell pepper that you got on clearance at Kroger (99 cents for 3 orange bell peppers is like, basically free, in terms of peppers) and put it cut-side-down on a foiled baking sheet. OH, and lightly oil the sheet tool, if you will. Move your oven rack up to the highest level and broil those peppers until the skin is black and charred. Don't do it too long! Take them out and you can place a bowl over them to steam the skins a bit, or just (carefully) remove the skins with a knife, or your fingers if you're hardcore like me.

Now fill your peppers with whatever you want. In my case, it's pulled pork, a thin layer of pesto, and some mozzarella cheese. Put back under broiler for maybe 1-2 minutes until they're nice and brown. Just keep an eye on them. Don't go tweeting your bestie or anything. STAY IN THE KITCHEN!

Serve alongside the naked portion of pulled pork, or you can just make a bunch of peppers. I only have one pepper left in the vegetable bowl so I'm splitting it between my husband and me.

Eat remainder of pork wrapped in green leaf lettuce.

--

Now, for the fine print:

9 oz. cooked pulled pork
1.5 oz mozzarella cheese
1/2 orange bell pepper
150 grams green leaf lettuce
15 g basil pesto
2 oz. cream cheese (for 'dessert')

~1225 cal, 16g carbs, 4g fiber - 12 net carbs

MISS ME? ;D Giant post ahoy!

Nice meeting you too! Sometimes it's so hard to keep track of all of the faces.

The pork butt recipe is awesome. You can also do it with any sort of shredded meat, really. Oh, or eggs! I actually was looking at the peppers in my bowl the other day, wondering what the heck to do with them. I thought of your classic "stuffed pepper" with beef and rice and wondered how something like this might turn out. It's almost like a pizza, if you used to take yours with green onions!

You could substitute the pesto for your favorite pizza sauce, I'd imagine. I have a homemade batch in the freezer that I should try the next time I get my hands on some affordable peppers.
