My Low Carb Meals & How I Track Them


 

Join us for the Fall 2016 Low Carb Challenge!

Keto Snacks

 

Below are all of the EASY low carb meals I had on Monday and Tuesday, plus my MyFitnessPal food diaries too so you can see exactly how I logged those meals.

I tend to eat super simple, but I prefer quick & easy (and less time & mess in the kitchen -lol).

I find I lose weight faster eating as few ingredients at a time as possible too, instead of more complex recipes.

See the 3 Ingredients Rule for more about that.

Simple meals are easier to log & track too! πŸ™‚

Monday’s Low Carb Meals

I start most days with this healthy low carb breakfast. It’s EASY with NO cooking (yay! lol), it has perfect LCHF macros and it’s all real foods with great nutrients.

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

My Favorite Low Carb Breakfast

I had a fabulous low carb lunch/dinner of baked chicken breast with organic broccoli florets. It was cooked in “cream of chicken with herbs” soup but I didn’t eat much of the sauce. So simple and so delicious! πŸ™‚

Joe brought me this dinner, which was super nice! I love low carb delivery, lol.

I ate half of it, then the other half later – it made two meals for me.:) He just puts the chicken, broccoli and soup all in a baking dish and bakes it at 350 until done – easy!

I had a late snack of Rosemary Flackers with Laughing Cow creamy swiss wedges:

Low Carb Flaxseed Crackers

The Flackers are cheapest on Netrition and come in 3 flavors: Rosemary, Savory & Cinnamon. Or if you have Amazon Prime you can get free shipping that way: http://amzn.to/29wPo8J but Netrition has low flat rate shipping w/any size order too.

Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals

I had my usual breakfast again yesterday…

What’s under all those beautiful low carb berries that are rich in antioxidants and nutrients? Daisy brand cottage cheese! Why? Because it has the fewest ingredients, all real food, and it has the best flavor on the market.

Compare Daisy against any other label on the shelf on your next trip to the grocery store! You’ll SEE why it’s the ONLY cottage cheese I’ll buy. πŸ˜‰

My Low Carb Breakfast with Berries

I had a very easy low carb lunch. It was a Kentucky Legend Ham Steak with Broccoli Slaw, both cooked in the skillet together with a TBSP of real butter.

For a quick snack later I had Low Carb Cinnamon Nut & Flax Granola with pecan halves mixed in. The cinnamon granola has a sweet tingly feel on the tongue. πŸ™‚

Low Carb Cinnamon Granola

My dinner last night included Broccoli Slaw again. I always find it in the produce section at Wal-Mart or Kroger. This time I had it with Johnsonville kielbasa, both cooked in the skillet together with a dab of real butter again.

As you can see, all of my meals are very simple. I love the Kentucky Legend ham steaks and center cut pork chops. They’re already cooked so they make for EASY meals when you want to throw something together real quick.:)

Broccoli Slaw is a favorite too. It’s only 2 net carbs for 1 cup, and it’s great for any kind of stir fry or even in cold salads. You could saute it in butter and top it with alfredo chicken (using it in place of rice or pasta) too.

The easy oven dishes are great too…

You can put pretty much anything in one big baking dish and call it dinner. πŸ™‚ I like to use Alfredo sauce and Chicken Broth in mine to make it lower carb.

See: Low Carb Oven Stew Recipe. The “alfredo broth” is delicious!

How are things going for you?

It’s day 24 and we’re now in the 4th week of the challenge. πŸ™‚ 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!

Best,

    I was so excited to learn you were working on a document with your low carb meals, recipes, etc. It is a no brainer to follow your meal plans and recipes. Thank you so much. Could you also do a section on how and what to order when eating out? I get confused and make the wrong choices. I cannot tell you how much your posts have helped me. Thank you again.

    I have Fitness Pal Premium but I cannot figure out how you got net carbs on yours? I set my fat, protein and carb allowance but I wondered how many calories you entered and how you got net carbs on your diary. Thanks.

      Hi Cindy,

      I have the free version of MyFitnessPal and this is how I have it set up: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/4448/myfitnesspal-hack/ (the hack is free too). It only works online in Firefox or Chrome, but I still use the app to put in foods on the go.

      I don’t set the calories. I think MFP set that automatically, and I just ignore it – along with goals and all the other numbers. I keep it simple: 20 net carbs max, 70% fat minimum. πŸ™‚
