2 Day LCHF Food Diary with Easy Low Carb Vegetables


 

Keto SnacksHappy Monday! πŸ™‚

How was your weekend??

I actually cooked for a change. πŸ™‚

It was a super simple low carb meal, and enough to get me through the weekend, which made for easy meals the last two days!

I also have a “sneak peek” of the August Keto Krate box, which is shipping soon, so I’ll include that for you below too…

My Low Carb Meals on Saturday

I put together a simple LCHF plate for breakfast: kosher cream cheese, raw pecan halves and fresh strawberries:

For lunch I finished my leftovers from dinner out the night before: herb-stuffed pork roast and steamed broccoli.

Pork Roast and Broccoli

For dinner I decided to cook, and cooked enough for four meals. πŸ™‚

I sauteed cauliflower rice and broccoli slaw in real butter:

Then added Spicy Chili Pili Nuts for a nice buttery crunch with a little kick.;)

That’s my handy Ozeri Kitchen Scale – which I love! πŸ™‚

Dinner turned out fabulous! It’s a “vegetarian low carb meal” but you could easily add shrimp, chicken, or top it with the protein of your choice – but it was great as is:

My Low Carb Meals on Sunday

I put away the other three servings of the meal I cooked the night before, so I had one of those for a quick & easy breakfast the next morning:

Low Carb Meal Prep

For lunch, my favorite healthy “LCHF Cereal” meal: 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy cottage cheese, 4 small strawberries & 18 grams of blueberries.

It comes to 5 net carbs and 85% healthy fat, and I stir it all together – for a nice sweet & crunchy “cereal-like” meal. πŸ™‚

Pecans & Berries, Delicious Whole Foods Low Carb Meal

For dinner I had another serving of my cauliflower rice, broccoli slaw & Pili Nuts – over a big bed of fresh baby spinach. πŸ™‚

The baby spinach leaves were super fresh and very tender, and absolutely delicious with the hot veggies on top!

I had a GREAT time hosting the Low Carb Classes last week, and really enjoyed the great discussions we had in those classes.

I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. πŸ™‚

How are things going with you?

I would LOVE to hear how things are going with you now that the summer is starting to wind down, and how your own low carb journey is going…

    My nose was to the grindstone all weekend…refining My Fitness Pal, pre-planning, recording. I do believe that little app is becoming my new BFF! …and my new favorite color is PURPLE!! πŸ™‚ Firmly in the big K now so I know I’m on the right track. Won’t check the scale for another week, but feeling like this isn’t nearly as bad as it’s cut out to be. After all, a nice din din of divine pork, asparagus spears and broccoli in good company isn’t quite being deprived in my book! πŸ™‚

    • Lynn Terry says:

      I’m so glad to hear that, Kathy! I actually ENJOY MyFitnessPal now that I have it figured out with all the little shortcuts that make it so easy. πŸ™‚ I love the Recipe Calculator, and the features like saving meals or copying meals to another diary.

      It’s not bad at all, lol. And you’re right – there’s no such thing as “feeling deprived” on a low carb diet. πŸ˜‰ There are just entirely too many great options to enjoy!!

    I started out 6 moths ago at 198 pounds as of Aug 1,2017 1 now weigh 154.3 pounds . High protein and low carbs are all I have to thank for the extra kick in my weight loss . I have used many of your meal suggestions and haven’t found any that aren’t good this has been the easier way to my goal thank you

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Congrats, Tammy! Way to go. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      The only thing I want to say, for anyone else reading along, is that a low carb diet isn’t meant to be “high protein” – although I get the recommended daily amount of protein, if not more (in grams).

      You should keep protein to 25% max of your total daily calories – which is the case with ANY diet, as “high protein” can damage your kidneys. But it’s about ratios or percentages, NOT grams. This explains & illustrates it very simply: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/7006/macronutrients/

      Anyway, YES it’s a very easy way to lose weight πŸ™‚ and you’ve done amazing at it!! *cheers*

  3. Laura says:

    I understand the 20 grams or less of carbs and not eating too much protein but am I supposed to limit fat also? I’m using cronometer to track macros. Am I supposed to stay within the limits for fat as well as protein and carbs?
    P.S. I asked this somewhere else on your site but wasn’t sure if that was the right place to ask.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Laura πŸ™‚

      You want to keep it simple: 20 net carbs max, 70% fat minimum. The protein should be 25% max, but that usually takes care of itself easily if you are doing 70% fat minimum.

      It IS just a minimum – I often do 80% fat or more. And the more healthy fats you include the better your weight loss & energy. πŸ˜‰ So no, you do not need to limit fat.

      The ideal kinds of fats to consume are: salmon, ribeye, avocado, pecans (and other nuts), real butter, coconut oil, olive oil, heavy cream, real cheese. Eggs are a good healthy fat (about 50/50 protein/fat) so cheesy eggs scrambled in real butter are great for example. Avocado is great salted & fried in butter too!

  4. Laura says:

    Hi Lynn,
    I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not, but yesterday I did not limit my fat intake after reading your replies about that and this morning the ketone stick showed I’m in deeper ketosis than I’d been since starting a week ago. So I think it’s like you said, the more fat I eat, the more I’ll burn. Right?
    Thanks,
    Laura

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Yes, exactly. πŸ™‚ I eat 80% fat or higher most days, and that’s what is keeping me lean and in ketosis! So ENJOY those delicious, satisfying high fat foods!!
