2 Day Low Carb Meal Diary: Keeping It Simple!


 

Join us for the Fall 2016 Low Carb Challenge!

Keto SnacksI’ve been keeping my low carb meals very simple lately, or EASY might be a better word. I like simple. 🙂

I find it’s easier to track my meals that way, and it takes a lot less time in the kitchen. When I do cook I tend to cook enough to make at least one other meal if not several.

It makes it so much easier when you have something ready to grab & eat when you get hungry!

Here’s what I’ve been eating for the last two days to give you some ideas…

Sunday’s Low Carb Meals

Somehow I missed breakfast hour on Sunday morning, so it was around noon when I finally had my usual healthy breakfast.

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

Easy Healthy LCHF Breakfast

I keep pecans, cottage cheese & berries on hand because this is such an EASY healthy low carb meal to make real quick – anytime.

My berries are frozen – even the fresh berries I picked this summer were frozen right after picking. Since I only eat a few berries at a time, they never go bad on me that way.:) Plus they are much easier to slice or chop up while still slightly frozen!

Sunday afternoon is when I made the Low Carb Honey Almond Biscuits.

They were really easy to make and only took a few minutes. I made up a whole batch, cooked 4 of them to eat for lunch/dinner, and put the rest in the refrigerator (covered) to cook up as needed.

I was tired Sunday evening and didn’t feel like cooking or messing with food. 😛

I looked in the fridge and just grabbed the first thing I saw: 3 ounces of Oscar Mayer turkey, a slice of Borden Natural colby jack cheese, and I dipped it in leftover Mexican cheese dip (from my low carb Mexican take-out).

Lazy Low Carb Snack

I had that quick snack on the deck and called it a night. 😉

Monday’s Low Carb Meals

For breakfast I had my Low Carb Honey Almond Biscuits topped with cream cheese and big juicy hand-picked blackberries. Delicious! 🙂

It’s nice to have something like that “ready to make.” I used 1 ounce of cream cheese across the four biscuits, and 4 LARGE blackberries.

For lunch I made sausage & fried eggs. I used Tennessee Pride mild sausage, and fried the eggs in the same skillet. Easy meal! I made half a tube of sausage (2 servings) and put the rest away for another meal.

Sausage & Eggs - Zero Carb Meal

I had one serving of the sausage with my eggs, then had sausage patties left over to use for dinner. I made Low Carb Sausage Biscuits using four more of my honey biscuits that were already pattied out and ready to bake. YUM! 🙂

It felt good to get out for a walk yesterday!

Here’s a picture of Slim and I taking a water break at the Old City Spring.

It was HOT yesterday, so I gave him a nice cool bath first to keep him cool enough for a midday walk, and we hit the spring and the river for refreshing water breaks. For him I mean – I had bottled water. 🙂

Out walking my Dane for exercise :)

 

I’m in for the day with some work projects, so I’m going to do a home workout today. Then tomorrow I’m heading out on another fun adventure. It’s been awhile since I’ve been out hiking & exploring! 🙂

I’m really looking forward to it. I seriously NEED to get moving again. It’s entirely too easy to get out of the habit and become sedentary again, which is just undoing all the work I’ve put in this year to get in shape. 😛

I’m challenging you to do the same…

Let’s get moving together!!

How are things going for you?

    Do you ever have days where you’re just HUNGRY constantly it seems?!? What do you do if so?? I don’t wanna eat a crazy amount of calories but I woke up hungry today, ate breakfast early and already hungry again…

    • Lynn Terry says:

      YES! I call them “hungry days” and oddly enough they hit me the day before my scales move down again. 🙂 What I do: I eat. I’m big on listening to your body, so I eat when I’m hungry. I just tend to make sausage & eggs, or cheesy scrambled eggs because it’s way low in carbs – plus my usual meals & healthy carbs.

      I would ignore calories on a hungry day and watch carbs only. It won’t hurt to trick your body a little by changing up the numbers in a big way for a day here and there, and often helps. 🙂

    I’ve just started and I keep reading and reading and it seems the more I read the more overwhelmed I become. I’ve only been out LCHF for 3 days and I’ve done well, but I’m not big on eggs every day so I’m having a very difficult time with breakfast ideas. I like sweets so that is also causing me difficulty. I’m willing to bake and cook and make different recipes but again it’s hard because I live in a small town so don’t have places like Trader Joes to run to. So far I have purchased Coconut Flour, and Almond Flour. I’m willing to order on line but would like to limit my orders to one source if possible. Can you help me with which site I’m most likely to be able to get everything I need. I want to make your honey muffins and I see where to purchase the honey but can you suggest any other items from the same site that may be crucial for me to have so that I can place just one order for the time being. I also would appreciate any really good dessert or snack recipe to help keep me on board at my early stage of the game. I’m 74 years old so I’m not computer savvy like the young people. Thank you in advance.
