Keto SnacksI got my November Keto Krate box yesterday, and was excited to see some of my favorite low carb chocolates in it!

They are shipping this box next business day right now, until they run out. You can sign up here and use Promo Code FIVE2017 for a discount.

We’ve been discussing this month’s box on Facebook and also in the Private Facebook Group – if you want to join in on the Q&A there.

I’ll show you what’s in it too (below) and also share my low carb meals and MyFitnessPal logs for the last three days…

The November Keto Krate Box:

If you got this box too, I would love to hear what you’ve tried from it so far. The Coco Polo Bars and Chocorite Caramels are two of my favorites. šŸ™‚

 

My Low Carb Meals on Saturday

In my last food diary I mentioned we made a low carb cheesecake, so I finished that off for breakfast on Saturday morning. šŸ™‚

It was especially good with ChocZero White Chocolate drizzled over the top!

Low Carb Chocolate Cheesecake

Here’s the recipe for that cheesecake – it came in the September Keto Krate.

For lunch I decided to try this smoked sausage I picked up at the store. It’s Oscar Mayer Selects Natural Roasted Tomatoes, Basil & Oregano “Italian Style Herb” flavor:

It was VERY flavorful! I think it will make a great addition to low carb pasta, so I’m going to try that out this week. šŸ˜‰

I had it for lunch with two fried eggs, which were big jumbo farm fresh eggs. Those are SO rich and delicious…

Low Carb Breakfast Ideas

My friend Carrie and I went to dinner that night, and met at the Gondola Pizza & Steakhouse – a Greek/Italian place.

I had the Philadelphia Chicken with bacon instead of onions, so it was two grilled chicken breasts smothered with: sauteed mushrooms, mozzarella and crisp bacon slices.

Plus roasted veggies as my side, and ranch to dip my chicken in:

I only ate one of the chicken breasts (half the main entree) and most of the veggies – except the carrots, I picked those out and brought them home for my great dane. šŸ˜‰

I just realized I forgot to log the ranch dressing. šŸ™„

My Low Carb Meals on Sunday

I didn’t have breakfast on Sunday until closer to lunch, so I just finished off my leftovers from the night before – the other smothered chicken breast and what was left of the broccoli:

For lunch I made a bowl of “low carb cereal” with 30 grams of raw pecan halves, 1/4 cup of Daisy brand cottage cheese, and 2 servings (50 grams) of Chunky Musli mix:

Both of my first two meals were later in the day, so I just had a Double Chocolate Low Carb Cookie that night – and warmed up, it tastes like a chewy fudgy brownie! šŸ™‚

My Low Carb Meals on Monday

Aaron brought me another flavor of D’s Naturals No Cow Bars to try, and I liked this one A LOT better than the chocolate banana flavor I had last time. It was less chalky and much better.

I had one bar for breakfast with 30 grams of raw pecan halves, and the other bar later that day for a snack.

D's Naturals No Cow Vegan Low Carb Bars

For lunch I had cheesy scrambled eggs with more of the Oscar Mayer smoked sausages. Those have such a great flavor to them!

Easy LCHF Breakfast

I teach until 8pm on Monday nights, so Aaron brought me low carb take-out from Applebee’s and we enjoyed a late dinner together.

I had the Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp with broccoli instead of potatoes. It’s on the 2-for-$20 menu so we both got a side salad too, but I saved mine to eat for another meal.;)

Applebee's Low Carb Menu Ideas

I ate *most* of that, about 75% of it – so I’ll have the leftover chicken on my leftover salad for dinner tonight. šŸ˜‰

Oh, and I screwed up my MFP diary with my bar entries -lol:

I had so much fun catching up with my friend Carrie this weekend. šŸ™‚ We’ve been friends since my senior year of high school, and we stayed up all night talking & brainstorming!

Our all-night discussions got me seriously inspired to get back to my hikes, tricep dips, career goals – and even to rip the wallpaper out of my guest bath and totally redo it! šŸ˜‰ lol

We also talked fashion ideas (she has serious skills in that department!) and she’s going to come back and help me learn how to pair & accessorize, with all my awesome new (smaller!) dresses & heels. Yay!! I struggle with that SO much. šŸ˜› šŸ™„

 

There was a Real Good Pizza coupon in this month’s Keto Krate box. Netrition just got those in, so they sent me some to review for you. They should be here any day now. I can’t wait to try them! Have you tried them yet??

I’m off to put together a grilled chicken caesar salad out of my leftovers… and enjoy a quiet night at home with Slim, my great dane.

And of course get in a set of Tricep Dips before the night runs out! šŸ™‚

How are things going with you?

I would love to hear any challenges your facing, favorite low carb foods or meals you’ve discovered, any questions you have – and just how you’re doing even!

    How would you modify this diet if you were interested in losing more weight instead of just maintaining. I have about 40 pounds to lose and I would like to do with the low-carb way. I am older than you so Iā€™m not quite as active as you are so I know that my intake would have to be way less than yours Thanks for any help that you can give me

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Great question Phlis šŸ™‚

      I am not in maintenance myself, so what I do is exactly what I would recommend to anyone of any age to lose weight: 20 net carbs max, 70% fat minimum.

      I lost all of my weight so far just eating low carb. I started exercising last year to build lean muscle weight and tone up, but I’ve been pretty inactive lately myself.

      There are women in my group in their 60’s and 70’s using these same numbers and having great results. I am 44 years old myself, and post hysterectomy. It’s the standard ketogenic low carb diet (low carb / high fat).

  2. Shelly says:

    Hi Lynn, I’m a couple months in and doing pretty well, but what foods would you suggest when I have a lot of calories and fat left but I’m topped out on carbs? Would it be ok to eat a burger pattie, etc. late in the day? I struggle to get veggies in and am usually low on potassium. Also, what are your thoughts on intermittent fasting? Thanks!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Shelly,

      Sure, a burger patty or any good fatty meat – grilled salmon even – would be ideal. You could even have bacon & eggs (breakfast for dinner). šŸ™‚

      Avocado and salmon are good low carb sources for potassium. They’re also high in healthy fats too, which is a plus!

      Spinach & mushrooms are also good low carb foods for potassium. If you’re meeting your limit of 20 net carbs/day but not getting enough veggies into your diet, what are you eating usually?
