@Britesea , is bread off the menu completely for Keto? Every time I'm in Oregon, I watch for Dave's Killer Bread. We don't tend to eat a whole lot of bread here, and that was one we really liked but wasn't offered here. I was very excited when I found we are now getting that at the higher end grocery stores and the bakery thrift store here. (I won't spend $6 for a loaf of bread, but I'll do it at the thrift store prices.)

Starches of almost ANY kind (all pastas, most rice, most breads, and even most starchy veggies) are off of my husband's food list now as they tend to create a nasty taste in his mouth due to his chemo. But he's able to eat the very dense breads (Rye, etc), and Dave's.

@milkmansdaughter bread isn't off the menu, nor is anything else; but you're supposed to keep total carbs under a certain amount in order to achieve ketosis (which can be measured using test strips you can get at most pharmacies). The problem with bread, sugar and honey, some veggies and most fruits, and milk is they all contain a fair amount of sugars so you end up not being able to eat very much. You have to make a decision of where you're going to get your carbs. Most people opt to forego bread and eat more greens and low carb fruits like berries.
One thing I found out about breads-- sourdough bread has fewer carbs than most regular breads, because the yeasts have eaten a portion of the sugars in the starter, and the longer you let the bread rise, the more sugars they can eat.

@creativetwinszoo what are those pieces of furniture? They look sort of like long, low cabinets from the picture. Anyway, the color you are using is beautiful!

@Britesea
I think they were part of a living room cabinet or another peice of large furniture, we bought them at a g××dwill to turn into part of our bed structure with storage beneath thank you ♡
Unfortunately due to a dust storm and storm coming in we had to put it up and hope it dont get dusty before we could finish boo
