Low Carb Foods & 2 Great LCHF Take-Out Meals


Join us for the Fall 2016 Low Carb Challenge!

Keto SnacksThis may shock you, but I have NOT had my usual “low carb cereal” of nuts & berries with cottage cheese for TWO straight days, lol.

So what DID I eat?

I’ll show you. πŸ™‚

My numbers were totally off for both days, meaning my macros. And I had one of those “zero appetite” days where MyFitnessPal about had a stroke because I didn’t have enough calories. πŸ˜›

I don’t really stress over that. I usually always stay within my macro goals, with the very rare exception – or if I’m a few numbers off that’s not a big deal to me.

Here’s what I’ve been eating. It’s two full days worth of low carb meals and the MyFitnessPal diaries too so you can see how I logged those meals, including two GREAT low carb take-out meals…

Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals

I was out for errands & appointments on Wednesday morning so I missed breakfast at home. I grabbed a late breakfast / early lunch from a little local place around 10:30am. I just ordered “a la carte” and got 3 fried eggs, 3 pieces of grilled tenderloin & an order of bacon:

Low Carb Breakfast Take-Out

I didn’t have much of an appetite on Wednesday, so I made 3 meals out of that. I think I had 2 eggs with bacon and once piece of tenderloin around 11am. Then I had the other egg and a piece of tenderloin later – and ate the last piece of tenderloin in the late afternoon.

I had a quick snack that night of a roam pork stick & cucumber slices too…


Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Wednesday:

Obviously I did NOT eat enough, but I did skip breakfast and I was in bed by 8pm -lol. It was just one of those days where I didn’t have much of an appetite.


Thursday’s Low Carb Meals

I made low carb blueberry crepes for breakfast. It’s a simple recipe: 2 ounces of cream cheese, 2 large eggs, 35 grams of blueberries, a dash of cinnamon. I blend the eggs & cream cheese together then add the blueberries – and fry in real butter over medium heat (5 on my stove) in a nonstick skillet. Easy! πŸ˜‰

Low Carb Crepes

This made 6 small crepes, and I made 2 smaller meals out of it. Total for whole batch: 8 net carbs, 592 calories, 82% healthy fats. I usually add crushed pecans too – that makes them even better!

Since my Netrition Box came in yesterday, I ate one of the YUP Brands sugar cookie bars that came in that package. I originally tried the PB&J flavor when it came in one of my Keto Krate packages, and I think I might like that flavor better.

I like these bars because they have very little sugar alcohol, especially compared to other low carb bars on the market…

I had to get out and run a few errands in the evening, including groceries!:) lol, so I grabbed take-out from Applebee’s carside-to-go service while I was out.

I got the Grilled Salmon Caesar Salad (with no croutons). There’s an upcharge for the salmon instead of chicken, but it’s totally worth it. I just call it in as, “I’ll have the Caesar Salad with grilled salmon instead of chicken, and no croutons please.”

I had some Halo Top low carb ice cream last night too, while I was watching the movie Sisters. It’s not my usual kind of movie, but it did make me laugh. πŸ™‚


Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Thursday:

MyFitnessPal Net Carbs Food Diary

Macronutrients: Simple Explanation Of Low Carb Macros

How To Get A Net Carbs Column in MyFitnessPal

Calories: 1508
Net Carbs: 31
Total Carbs: 63
Protein: 85 Grams
68% Fat, 23% Protein
Water: 48 ounces

My numbers were totally OFF the last two days. I like to stay at 20 net carbs max, 70% fat minimum. I noticed that of course, but I had super full & busy days and just went with it. It helps when I have my “low carb cereal” because that’s such a healthy high fat meal. πŸ˜‰

My scales finally moved about half a pound, so I’ve been at 139.4 pounds the last few days. I’m just glad to be back under 140!:)

I found this t-shirt in a box. It was so tiny when I got it in a swag bag a few years ago, I meant to find a KID to give it to. πŸ˜› I threw it on Wednesday in a pinch to get out the door for my appointments… and it fit!! That was a WOW moment, lol – and another good reminder not to get too focused on the scales.

Low Carb Weight Loss Picture


I’m really slacking on my fitness goals lately, and there’s no excuse really – except that I’ve been super busy. That’s not a REAL excuse though, because things like Tricep Dips and Ab Rolls only take minutes. πŸ™„

Then yesterday I found this: http://www.tennesseerunningtour.com

I am NOT a runner, lol. But it did catch my attention…

There’s a 5 Miler at Rock Island State Park on October 15th, and all of a sudden I thought I could do that! I got a surge of motivation to get back on track and start training – and learning how to run (don’t laugh, haha).

I’m seriously considering it. And if it’s fun, I think it would be awesome to sign up for more all over the state! Have you ever participated in a run or a race? I bet you can find things like that in your area too…

Or try MeetUp.com, I found some great hiking groups there!

How are things going for you?

    Kev and I walked a half marathon (13.2 miles) back in 2010. We were traveling to Jamaica anyway so thought why not participate in the Reggae Half Marathon. It was not easy. Actually the training was tough in the states but we were not prepared for how hot the pavement would be so it was much worse than we expected. Yikes!

    Kev was a trooper and stayed with me the whole time, it was the plan but I told him he could go ahead and run the race. He stuck by my side and I came in dead last. Well, he did because he wouldn’t let me be last to cross the line. LOL

    Running is not my thing but I don’t mind walking. May try another walking race down the road, once my leg/groin issues get better.

      That Kevin is the best husband under the sun. πŸ™‚ What a guy! I’ve always thought so, but that story made me smile so big this morning. πŸ™‚

      I fully expect to come in last if I participate in a run. I would do it more for the experience, and the training – and motivation. But yeah, as a first time I wouldn’t expect much more than total exhaustion – and an I DID IT experience, lol.

    I love your meals. I have not had my low carb cereal either. I miss it. I have been so busy this week that i had to eat something quick and easy. The low carb cereal is simple but i have to thaw the strawberries a bit first. I actually PREFER the frozen strawberries to the fresh ones for the cereal
    And then it takes time to sit and eat the bog plate full of cottage cheese, strawberries and pecans. LOL……YES i have been THAT busy where i do not have time to slowly eat my cereal and relax. Well i think i will have that for dinner today. πŸ™‚

    Omg. Girl……you look so thin and FAB in that T shirt. Is it a small. You are wasting away. Lol.
    You had a NS victory for sure…..and a s ale victory as well
    I pray for the day i can get in the 130’s……id be happy to be in the 140’s actually. I am just a bit taller than you. I think 130 something might be too skinny for me but Hey i would rather that be the case than the alternative. Haha
    You are looking GREAT. You are my inspiration. πŸ™‚

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Thank you, Gina πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ The t-shirt is actually labeled a Large, but I’d swear it’s a child’s size large lol.

      I totally get the “too busy to eat” thing, that’s been my issue this week too – go go go, or just busy & distracted and having to grab something simple real quick. I like the frozen berries too. πŸ™‚ Even my fresh hand-picked blueberries and blackberries were frozen after we picked them. I love the sweet, cold crunch!

      • Gina says:

        Lol. It HAS to be eithe a child’s size large or a Junior size. That is no ladies size large. πŸ™‚ you look so skinny. πŸ™‚
