Keto SnacksHey πŸ™‚ How are things going for you so far?! I’ve had a BUSY few days, so I kept my low carb meals super simple.

Below is a quick photo tour of my food diary for Monday and Tuesday, plus my MyFitnessPal food diaries so you can see how I logged those meals.

Hopefully this will give you some ideas you can USE along the way. πŸ˜‰

 

Monday’s Low Carb Meals

I had a very early appointment with my doctor so I had to grab something easy to eat on the go. I grabbed 2.5 servings (75) grams of pecan halves – which are very low carb, very high fat, and very filling!

For lunch I sauteed some broccoli slaw in real butter, then topped it with CRISP roasted vegetables. These were the leftover veggies from my last food diary, and I put them in the oven until they were VERY crispy. πŸ™‚

It was green beans, broccoli, garlic cloves, cherry tomatoes & zucchini.

Broccoli slaw is awesome raw or cooked, and a personal favorite of mine! You can usually find it in the produce section at Wal-Mart or Kroger stores near the bagged salads.

For dinner I made a simple plate of eggs, scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese (cut & cubed off the block).

I had a late nap earlier, so I was up late that night and ate again. This time I had my favorite “low carb cereal” which is: 1/2 cup of pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy Brand cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries.

Here’s how I logged Monday’s meals – and I just realized I forgot to add the roasted veggies that topped my broccoli slaw for lunch. πŸ™„ 😳 Oops!

Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals

I was out running errands on Tuesday morning, so I stopped by McDonald’s and got sausage and eggs. I actually ordered extra, so I’d have plenty to eat for maybe two meals.

I just asked for “4 sausage patties and 4 round fried eggs please.”

I ate maybe 1 1/2 of each. I was feeling really sick, but needed to eat enough to at least take the round of meds the doc has me on. I have a horrible upper respiratory infection that’s been lingering on for months – and turned nasty on me. πŸ™„

After a few bites and some meds, I decided to go sit in the sunshine for awhile to shake the chill and just take a break. I found a big flat rock in the sun across from Twin Falls at Rock Island State Park and sat there ALL afternoon. πŸ™‚

I was finally hungry when I left there so I stopped at the market near the state park and got a quick dinner. Starting with a side salad with ranch dressing:

I ordered a hamburger steak, added mozzarella & mushrooms, and for my other side I asked for sliced tomatoes. I didn’t end up eating the tomatoes though, as there were plenty on my salad.

I came home and crashed for a few hours, and then I was up ALL night – literally until 7am the next morning. πŸ˜› I got up and finished my sausage & eggs from McDonald’s earlier, then late in the night I had my favorite “cereal” again…

I enjoyed my day in the sun yesterday. I did take some work with me, and my Inner Guide Planner too. I journaled out some goals, worked on ideas, and made some gratitude notes. It was a gorgeous day here in Tennessee for early April at around 80 degrees and sunny. πŸ™‚

I’m sick of being sick, and hoping this round of antibiotics and meds FINALLY gets me over this. I’ve been sick for three full months now. πŸ™„ I’m SO ready to feel better!

Meanwhile I’m continuing to eat low carb, eat healthy, and get as much exercise as I have the energy to do – including a 7 mile hike last Saturday. It takes a lot to slow me down, lol.

Anyway, I hope my LCHF food diaries above give you some ideas on how to eat low carb on the go, how to meet your macros, and how to keep it simple.

How are things going on your end?

Are you feeling MOTIVATED and excited about reaching your goals?!

    HAPPY FIRST WEEK OF THE CHALLENGE. My question is what do you use the coffee mate powder creamer in?? I always see it but never see coffee. Are you mixing it in the pecans and cottage cheese?? Silly question I know, but I was just curious?? Thanks again for all your tips.

    Hello from Oslo, Norway,

    Thanks for setting up the challenge. I’ve been on moderate LCHF for 1,5 months, but wanted to go strict LCHF and this was the perfect push πŸ™‚
    I just have a question, as I’m still fairly new to this….
    IΒ΄m using Lifesum, not MyFitnessPal, simply because I have been using it for a while and have tons of meals, recipeis, etc. there, so would be a huge job to transfer. In Lifesum, I don’t get a measure for net carbs, but I do get total carbs, fiber and sugar. As I understand, net carbs are total carbs – fiber, right? So do I understand it right that if I have eaten 18g carbs total in a day and fiber is at 13g, my net carbs are 5g, meaning I can eat 15 more net carbs for the day? Much appreciate all you do. Sincerely, HM
