Easy Healthy Low Carb Meals


 

Keto SnacksI got right back on track yesterday after my higher carb day on Sunday with that big ridiculous salad -lol.

It was a super long day though (8am-3am), so I ended up having 4 full meals totaling 30 net carbs (10 more than my usual 20 net carbs/day).

I ate super healthy and very clean though, and even got in a great workout! I think you’ll enjoy these EASY low carb meal ideas…

Monday’s Easy, Healthy Low Carb Meals

I had my favorite “Low Carb Cereal” for breakfast. I called it “Red, White & Blueberry” which was perfect for July 4th. 🙂

It’s 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 2 strawberries and 1/8 cup (17.5 grams) of blueberries. That came to 6 net carbs and 85% healthy fats.

For lunch I finished off the squash, sausage & spinach dish that I had leftover. That was delicious! I simply fried up ground sausage then added steamed spinach and cream cheese to it – and topped it with yellow squash. Then I baked/broiled it in the oven to cook the squash.

I always like to cook up extra when I do cook (which is rare, lol) because leftovers make for EASY meals. Speaking of, I had leftover sausage so for dinner I whipped up some fried eggs to go with that:

I mentioned it was a VERY long day. Around midnight I got hungry again and made a FABULOUS bowl of nuts & berries (similar to my breakfast). This time I used raspberries instead of strawberries though – and double the blueberries. 🙂

It’s 1/2 cup pecans, 17.5 grams of raspberries, 35 grams of blueberries and 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese. This came to 8 net carbs, which is high for me… but WOW was it great! haha – YUM!

I got my workout in while the berries were thawing for my midnight snack last night… because what else are you going to do – stand there and watch berries thaw?! 😛 lol.

I often do my abs & arms workout while half a pot of coffee is brewing. I say sneak in those workouts anytime you can! 🙂

Frozen Berries - A Healthy Low Carb Treat!

 

I mentioned recently that I went blackberry picking, and I’ll be picking fresh blueberries soon too. I love this time of year. 🙂 I enjoy frozen berries too of course, but there’s nothing like fresh berries off the vine!

I’ve been looking for a good berry dessert recipe, like a cobbler – but low carb style. I was thinking I could use my Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe to create a “blackberry cobbler/crumble” type dessert. Perhaps use the cookie dough as a bottom crust layer with a “crumble” over the top too? A cream cheese drizzle would top that off nicely! That’s what’s on my “kitchen science experiment” list for the week…

I got my first Keto Krate Snack Box in the mail this week too, so stay tuned for the details on that. It has some really cool low carb snacks & products in it that I can’t wait to try. I’ll do that, and share all the details with you. It was a FULL box. I love food delivery, or anything that means I don’t have to shop and cook!

It was a very good day with raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, spinach, squash, pecans, eggs, etc. Lots of delicious nutritious foods & healthy fats!

How Are Things Going For You?

I always look forward to hearing from you. 🙂

    For the last 2 weeks I haven’t been keeping track, just eating clean and only when hungry. Got on the scales this morning and expected my weight to be up but it was way down. I finally got another swoosh. 200.5 Only a pound away from Onderland. I was so surprised I made my hubby come look. Total weight loss 15 pounds since January. I am 68 years old and I lost very slow but am happy eating so healthy. Only one cheat recently, had a small milk shake after a long, painful doctor’s appointment.

      Congrats, Kathy! That’s seriously motivating, I bet – getting into the 100’s. 🙂 I’m a slow loser too, but 15 pounds makes a BIG difference! I know it has on me. You’re doing awesome – keep up the great work. Your body (and health!) will thank you for it. 🙂 *cheers*

    Lynn, I make an easy LC dessert using a crumble topping that is just almond flour, sweetner to taste, dash of salt, chopped pecans, and cold butter. Mix dry ingredients, then using a fork or hands mix in butter…it will be crumbly with smalls chunks of butter. Sprinkle over your LC sweetened fruit and bake until brown and bubbly. So yummy!!! Sorry, I don’t have exact measurements. I just dump and stir!
