I have plenty of groceries in the house. There’s ground chuck in the freezer to make BBQ Spinach Burgers. There’s chicken breast thawed out to try a low carb chicken parmesan recipe with some low carb pasta I got in to review (to pair with the amazingly delicious Organic Marinara Sauce).
I have frozen veggies too – I was planning to make a broccoli asparagus casserole topped with cheese & crispy Cello Whisps.
That all sounds fabulous of course, but I’ve had a super busy week – and honestly just do not feel like cooking. At all. 😛
Fortunately you don’t have to be a master chef to eat low carb, and it’s easy enough to get by without even cooking. 🙂 Even with plenty to choose from in the house… I ended up calling in a quick low carb dinner from Domino’s last night.
I figured the 40 minutes I waited for that could be better spent doing something productive, instead of making a big mess in the kitchen.:) Besides, not only do I get dinner that way, I also get visited by a cute delivery guy. I guess that might be useful if I bothered to shower before answering the door, but oh well… ha!
Hmm, I guess I could have showered in that 40 minutes. You know what I did instead? I went shopping (online). 🙂 I needed a couple of smaller pieces of clothes to wear, which I personally thought was a much better use of my time than cooking – when Domino’s was more than happy to make my dinner, and even bring it to me!
I used exactly one skillet in the last two days. That is IT.
Here’s what I’ve been eating…
Thursday’s Low Carb Meals:
Confession: I’m addicted to the Chunky Musli we got in the last Keto Krate.
The musli is SO good in my low carb cereal! I ordered more on Amazon even (the larger bag is a better deal, just FYI). My cereal had: 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage, 4 small diced strawberries and 25 grams of Chunky Musli.
The musli adds so much texture & flavor to my “cereal” !!
For lunch I just made a simple cheesy scramble.
It was 3 eggs scrambled with colby jack cheese in real butter:
I wasn’t really in the mood for dinner, and actually thought I’d just skip it. But I ended up having a friend over so I made up a big snack plate for us to enjoy while we were chatting. I didn’t eat a lot, just picked at it really, but it did hit the spot.
Especially the Pili Nuts. 🙂
It was a simple snack plate with Oscar Mayer sliced rotisserie chicken & colby jack cheese rollups, mozzarella string cheese, salted almonds, raw pecans & Pili Nuts:

Oh, and I had some Halo Top low carb ice cream later that night too. 🙂

Friday’s Low Carb Meals:
I didn’t eat breakfast until noon, so this is more like breaklunch I guess? 🙂 I did mention I was addicted to the Chunky Musli, right? lol… It’s SO good! I’m going to use it in my Almond Honey Biscuits recipe next I think, and make… Musli Muffins? YUM.
Anyway, my breakfast yesterday was a BIG bowl of healthy low carb foods: 1/2 cup pecans (60 grams), 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries and 17.5 grams of blueberries, plus 25 grams of the Chunky Musli.
For dinner I called Domino’s and ordered 8 mild bone-in wings and a chicken caesar salad. I had the 8 wings and half a ranch cup and saved the salad for another meal.
And I did NOT bat my eyelashes at the delivery guy. I promise. 😉
Late last night I looked around the kitchen again. So many options. Meh. 😛
I just cannot be bothered lately – which I need to get over considering I haven’t eaten a vegetable since last Sunday when I went out to eat with Caroline! Oh well… I ended up just grabbing some pecans and string cheese.:)
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Friday:
My apologies for not being more creative with my low carb meals, or having something more exciting to share with you in today’s food diary. 🙂
At least I’m hitting my macros, even though I went over my “20 net carbs” by a hair both days. Blame the Musli, lol – that stuff is just TOO good!
I mentioned I did some shopping online last night. I seriously needed a new belt. I don’t even own one that fits anymore!
I love to shop the American Eagle Sales, and they have some great deals online right now. The jeans & tank (and the layered necklace too!) that I had on in my weight loss pictures in the last post were all from American Eagle, btw.
Ebates is also offering double cash back at American Eagle right now too, so that helps even more. If you decide to shop make sure you sign up for Ebates and have the Toolbar activated on your browser. 😉 It’s free money!
I can’t wait for my new things to get here. I ordered two cute casual sweater dresses, a hooded sweater and a cardigan, some knee socks (don’t laugh:) haha), a new belt that hopefully fits, and a couple of smaller tops.
