On dealing with the particular ravenousness that occurs with steroid treatment — keto chicken soup edition


Slept all day from the muscle relaxers. Not too terrible. But I have been so ravenous all damned day.

Trying to be moderately low carb, as the whole reason I am in this situation is that I lost a bunch of weight then gained it back and my back hates me. So does my closet, but that’s a different story.


Egg drop chicken soup with veg noodles.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 packs of chicken thighs with bone and skin (deliciousness bone brothiness)
  • One pack of Walmart broccoli shredded Cole slaw mix. It’s in the veggy section — it’s got carrots and some purple cabbage, but not enough to un-keto or un – deliciousness it.
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • Water to cover all the veg and chicken
  • 4 eggs
  • Xantham gum, 1/2 pack of the Hodgson mills stuff
  • Spices: salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, sage, parsley… and whatever else you’d want to throw in to make it tasty to you

what you’ll do:

  • Throw your chicken thighs in the crock pot.
  • All your spices, lemon juice, veg shreds, water.
  • Set it on high for six hours or longer. However it works for you as long as the chicken falls off the bones.
  • When it’s looking about done, ladle about two cups of broth in a separate pot and turn your eye on high.
  • Sprinkle your xantham gum in while whisking.
  • Crack your eggs in whatever dish you have conducive to holding scrambled raw egg.
  • Pour in slowly, stirring continuously
  • When egg is done (like 5 seconds later) pour eggs broth back into crock pot.
  • Enjoy!

And that’s that. You can dress up or down how you want, but it is the bomb.
