Photo Tour: My Low Carb Week


 
Free Ketogenic Diet Cookbook

I haven’t shared a food diary in a bit, mostly because I feel like my meals have been boring lately.:)

It’s been a busy week here with work, and with planning for upcoming trips & events – where the food will get a little more interesting at least. πŸ˜‰

Keto SnacksI’m preparing for the KetoCon Event and Low Carb Meetup in Austin, TX in a few weeks.

Plus a meetup in Nashville, TN on June 12th and also scouting other potential summer trips.

I’ll be in Atlanta again in August too…

I just got the May Keto Krate the other day, and can’t wait to open it up and see what we got this month. They’re already sold out (again!), but I’ll share what came in the box – as well as the April & May Keto Delivered boxes – because it’s always fun to browse & discuss the new low carb products!:)

Below are the meals I’ve been eating for the last five days. In my last food diary post I shared 34 low carb meals & food ideas with you…

And of course Aaron and I ate the Low Carb Chocolate Cake since then too. πŸ™‚

Low Carb Meals: 5-Day Low Carb Food Diary

I had a nice dinner date Sunday night on the patio at Gondola, following an evening in the sunshine by the river.

I ordered the 12oz Delmonico ribeye with roasted broccoli & cauliflower:

Keto Restaurant Meals

I ate half of it at dinner, and finished the other half later that night at home.

Monday’s Low Carb Meals

On Monday Aaron brought me a big breakfast from McDonald’s – my usual order of “3 sausage patties and 3 round fried eggs please.” πŸ™‚

I made two meals out of that, then enjoyed a quick trip to Rock Island for some sunshine and fresh air in the late afternoon.

Slim and I both enjoyed stretching our legs a bit!

Outdoor Exercise - Staying Active

I work late on Monday evenings, so dinner was take-out delivery from a local bistro: a half pound hamburger steak with roasted veggies.

Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals

Breakfast on Tuesday morning was cheesy eggs: 3 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese. And I discovered there were NO forks clean – so I ate them with a spoon. πŸ˜›

Eggs With a Spoon

Lunch was a second breakfast. πŸ™‚

I had my favorite low carb meal of 1/2 cup of pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 small strawberries:

For dinner I had a low carb style Frisco Burger from Hardee’s.

They’ll make anything on the menu low carb for you. They have a “make low carb” button on the register and will lettuce-wrap any sandwich!

Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals

I haven’t mentioned this anywhere else on the web, not even Facebook or Instagram yet, but…

I recently got my hands on TWO boxes of the original Keto Brownie bars.

They are no longer making these bars, which makes me crazy sad – and I’m crossing my fingers they bring them back, because they’re one of my favorites!!

Keto Brownie - Original Bars

They have new products out now at Keto Brownie that I am about to try – so stay tuned for my review. πŸ˜‰

I had two of those bars on Wednesday.

I also had my favorite “low carb cereal” made with 1/2 cup (60 grams) of pecans, 1/4 cup (half a serving) of Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 strawberries and 18 grams of blueberries.

For lunch I had a simple tuna salad with mayo, mustard and dill relish – and added some shredded cheddar to it too.

I intended to make bacon & eggs for dinner, but I got lazy and just ate the bacon. πŸ™‚

Thursday’s Low Carb Meals

I had another Keto Brownie bar for breakfast with a bottle of water.

I’m seriously going to have to ration what I have left of these! πŸ˜›

For lunch I had cheesy eggs…

Just Eggs - Beautiful Cheesy Eggs!

And for dinner – crispy bacon dipped in ranch dressing! πŸ™‚

Keto Chips and Dip

Friday’s Low Carb Meals

I didn’t eat much on Friday (yesterday)…

I did have another beautiful Keto Brownie bar while I was doing my morning work.:) I’m going to do my best at talking them into bringing this one back!!

Keto Brownie - Original Bars No Longer Available

The only other meal I had was 3 fried eggs with two pieces of Smithfield brand zero carb (keto friendly) sausage. You can find it in the frozen foods section at some stores. I believe Publix carries it.

Keto Friendly Sausage and Fried Eggs

 

Nick sent me two full boxes of his original Keto Brownie bars recently, and I did NOT realize he stopped making them – OR that they were the LAST two boxes of these bars they even had left!

😯

I’m anxious to try the new Keto Brownie products (low carb brownies & blondies) and I just got those in today… so I’ll keep you posted.

Aaron I both LOVE these original bars. They’re (correction: they WERE) 4 net carbs and have NO sugar alcohol – with a nice rich cocoa flavor and awesome texture with crunch & chunks. *sigh*

Keto Brownie Bars - The Last Box On Earth!

 

Hopefully we can vote the original KB bars back in. πŸ˜‰

We’re almost half a million strong here now, so surely we can be convincing!

Today I had more of the same – sausage & cheesy eggs and my favorite cereal combo. Not to bore you, I just go with what’s easy and whatever I have on hand. I’m all for keeping it fast & simple!

My macros have been on point all week:
under 20 net carbs, over 70% fat.

You’ll be happy to know that I did go to the grocery store today though, and I got shrimp & chicken – plus some veggies. So expect a little more variety in my next update. πŸ™‚

How are things going with you this week?

Leave a comment and let’s chat!:)

    Lynn, we were just talking on FB a few minutes ago and I decided i would just rather chat thru email rather than FB.. In the beginning did you have trouble giving up bread and potatoes? I love bread!!!! Also my coffee is a problem because I love the flavored coffee mate creamers. Yum!!!! 6 years ago my husband and I lost 62 lbs each by just counting calories (around 1000 calories a day). I have kept all but about 8 lbs off and i am trying to lose those 8 lbs. The low calorie diet is just not working for me this time. I am 64 and not very active but that needs to change. I have been reading your blogs and the Keto LCHF diet really does interest me. I guess I just need to jump in there and just DO IT!!!

      Hi Pam,

      There is low carb bread! πŸ™‚ Finding GOOD low carb replacements for things I used to love has helped me a lot. While I only eat them when I actually crave them (not daily), it’s SO nice to have that option – and what makes it easy to stay on track.

      I went through so many variations with my coffee. What I love now, a true addiction even πŸ™‚ is the Coffee-Mate Sugar Free Hazelnut Powdered Creamer. The powdered is less carbs than the liquid AND it’s creamier – so it takes less. Plus it’s portable, no refrigeration required. πŸ˜‰

      I thought I would like other sugar free flavors better than hazelnut, but it’s honestly the best tasting sugar free flavor they have in my opinion.

      That last 10 pounds is the most stubborn. πŸ˜›

      I’ve found a ketogenic low carb diet SO beneficial in so many ways, in addition to easy weight loss. I don’t get bloated, my ankles don’t swell, I’m out of chronic pain and no more migraines, etc – like we were talking about on Facebook.

      Carbs promote inflammation in the body, so people who go low carb find it really helps with arthritis, fibromyalgia, and all the aches & annoyances associated with inflammation.

      The cravings go away FAST. There’s a lot of science behind a keto diet, it’s actually a huge chemical change in your body – which also changes your taste buds. I never EVER ate spinach before going keto, for example. πŸ˜‰

      All the things I thought I could never give up… don’t appeal to me AT ALL now.

      • Pam Sutherland says:

        Thank you, Lynn for all of your encouragement. I actually have fibromyalgia and many aches and pains associated with it.. I have a daughter who needs to lose probably 100 lbs. She is starting Keto in the morning……maybe i will join her and give it another try. I really would like to give it a month and see how i feel. I will continue to read your blogs and just know, you are a great source of information and encouragement!!!! Thanks so much!

        • Lynn Terry says:

          Thank you, Pam πŸ™‚

          My doctor wanted to diagnose me with fibromyalgia because I was in chronic nerve & muscle pain – but going low carb has me totally OUT of pain.

          I wasn’t expecting that, but it’s been one of the best results of staying keto! πŸ˜‰

          You should join her… it’s so much better having someone to do it with! That’s why I host this community and love interacting with everyone here.

          I think you’ll be VERY happy with the results if you try it out for a month. πŸ˜‰

    Finally decided to do something for me and joined Keto Krate! Thanks for the discount code! I am so excited for my June box to come! Have a great week!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      That’s awesome, Kathy – you’re going to LOVE it!! It’s so much fun to get a new box every month full of new low carb foods to try. πŸ™‚ It really helps mix things up! Enjoy. πŸ˜‰

  3. Patricia L says:

    This post has me in the mood for steak! That picture looks so good.

    I think I need to sign up for the keto krate also. We are going to be doing a lot of camping and it would be nice to have new shelf stable snacks to pack. I feel like I always under pack for myself thinking I’ll get by and then feel deprived while there.

    On a separate note…. anyone missing chocolate milk or shake tasting milk?? 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/4 cup whipping cream (remember to count the carbs) and 2 teaspoons sugar free chocolate torani syrup and 2 teaspoons sugar free vanilla torani syrup. Amazing!! (Sorry I would of posted on FB but I don’t have it).

    • Lynn Terry says:

      That Delmonico ribeye is my absolute favorite steak under the sun. πŸ™‚

      The Keto Krate is a lot of fun. You can cancel anytime, so there’s no long term commitment – even if you just want to get one box you can do that: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/krate The coupon code is FIVE2018 for $5 off your first box.

      Camping sounds like fun! I feel like we missed our Spring here and it went straight from winter to humidity & mosquitoes. πŸ˜›

      That chocolate milk recipe sounds great too, thank you!!
