Join us for the Fall 2016 Low Carb Challenge!

Keto SnacksYesterday I cooked two fabulous low carb dishes, which were both simple variations of easy low carb recipes I’ve shared with you before.

It’s nice to mix things up and eat something different for a change! πŸ™‚

I don’t cook much, which you already know if you’ve been following along for awhile, but these tips & ideas should prove very useful for you in your own kitchen.

Here are the two very easy recipes, plus all of my meals and my MyFitnessPal diary for yesterday, so you can see my meals & macros for ideas and examples…

Thursday’s Low Carb Meals

I made low carb crepes for breakfast – but with a special twist this time. πŸ™‚ Here’s the original recipe: Low Carb Blueberry Crepes Recipe.

My experimental version turned out GREAT!

Low Carb Breakfast Crepes

I’m having so much fun playing around with new low carb foods in different ways. πŸ™‚ For this version, I made Low Carb Blueberry Cinnamon Crunch Crepes.

They were fabulously delicious! I used the Cinnamon Nut & Flax Granola in them.

I love this granola by itself, or mixed with nuts for a healthy snack. One of the complaints I heard was that it gets “crumby” at the bottom of the bag – meaning there are a lot of fine crumbs. I’m planning to use those as a topping on a low carb berry cobbler soon. πŸ™‚ But it was also perfect in my crepes! I shook out the smaller pieces to measure a serving (42 grams) of the cinnamon granola:

I used whole blueberries, with the larger ones sliced in half, to get a nice burst of berry flavor in my crepes. I also used a full 1/4 cup (35 grams) of blueberries this time.

The “cinnamon crunch” part was SO good! πŸ™‚

They came out really tasty with a nice texture, full of cinnamon crunchies and plump blueberries. Yum!! The cinnamon granola is going to be a staple now for sure.

It made 5 large crepes, or maybe it was six.

I ate half for breakfast, and other half closer to lunch. Then I had a quick snack of pecans & mozzarella cheese in the afternoon.

For dinner I had a bowl of low carb veggie stew in alfredo chicken broth…

Easy Low Carb Vegetable Stew

I made up a big pan of the “veggies in broth” for the weekend. It will make for a nice bowl of soup, or an easy side dish with a meat (without the broth).

It has broccoli, cauliflower & yellow squash in it. Last time I used chicken & spinach. You can see the original recipe here: Low Carb Oven Stew. It’s really good, and SO easy to make.

I dumped a whole bag of frozen broccoli and frozen cauliflower into a big baking dish, and sliced up some fresh squash to throw in too. I used Campbell’s condensed chicken broth, plus about 3/4 can of water, and 1/2 cup of the Bertolli alfredo sauce.

Low Carb Side Dish Ideas

I poured the water & broth over the top, then the alfredo sauce, covered it with foil and baked it at 350. I stirred it up once it got hot to let all the juices mix up nicely. Oh – and I added a little salt. Not much, just a few shakes.

Easy Low Carb Meals

My goal was to just make a big dish of tasty veggies I could dip into throughout the weekend, so I would have something easy on hand. The broth was SO good though that I had my first serving as a bowl of “veggie stew”. πŸ™‚

Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Thursday:

You’ll notice in my MFP diary above that I have the “Veggie Alfredo Stew” listed as a meal. I did that by using the MyFitnessPal Free Recipe Calculator. It’s really easy to use, and the best way to get an accurate entry for recipes or more complex meals.

You just put in all the ingredients and the number of servings:

I love cooking up a big pan of something in the oven. I’m not big on meal prep, but one big pan of delicious low carb foods is a no-fuss, no-mess, easy way to create something yummy to have on hand for a few days. The combination of alfredo sauce and chicken broth makes such a tasty “stew” or broth too!

Besides those veggies, I have some other great low carb foods to make this weekend. I got a ham steak, some broccoli slaw, a big fresh cucumber, and I’ll probably make my low carb bread bites to go with the veggie stew too.

What about you – what are you planning to cook or eat this weekend?

How are things going on your end?

It’s day 19 of the 90 Day Challenge. How are you doing with your low carb meals & macro tracking? Any questions or struggles? I would love to hear your results so far.

Leave a comment and let’s talk!

    Hi Lynn,
    Your blog really encourages me! My problem is that I don’t want to keep track!! I have done every diet known to man and always had to keep track of every morsel I put in my mouth. The thing I liked about low carb, o thought, is that you don’t have to keep track. Just eat low carb high fat. I was doing great and lost 45 pounds but need to lose 100 more. Now instead of having a lot of good days in a row I’ll have one and then do bad the next. I can’t seem to stay consistent like I was. Do you think I need to keep track? For the rest of my life?
    Just wondering..
    Thanks for all you do
    Jennifer

      Hi Jennifer πŸ™‚

      Tracking really holds me accountable. It makes for more mindful eating, instead of mindless eating. I even put in my food BEFORE I eat it, which gives me a second to stop and pause if I *really* want to eat it. I find it helps A LOT.

      Why do you feel you’re struggling to stay consistent lately? I do think if you start tracking that will really help you stay on track – at least help you get back on track and back on a good roll. πŸ˜‰
