Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 15 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s not too late to join us if you haven’t already. 🙂
Day 15: Monday’s Low Carb Meals
I had a very simple low carb breakfast, because I was out of everything. 😛
It’s just 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 1 ounce of almonds & a cup of hot chicken broth. That came to 6 net carbs and 72% healthy fats.
I ran some errands, so I grabbed a Low Carb Thickburger at Hardee’s for lunch. I ordered it “Plain with cheese & mayo, please” which makes it zero carbs.
I had a beautiful treat in the afternoon of cream cheese and frozen strawberry slices. Cream cheese is even better with fresh raspberries, but I couldn’t find any anywhere yesterday – fresh OR frozen! 😛 This makes for such a nice cool, creamy low carb dessert. 🙂 It tastes better than any cheesecake I’ve ever had!
While I was out earlier I also got a Big Hot Ham & Cheese from Hardee’s (with no bun), and put it in the refrigerator for later:
I chopped that up, added 3 eggs, and made a ham, egg & cheese scramble:
I didn’t have much of an appetite yesterday, so I couldn’t finish all of that. It was A LOT of food, lol. I ate about 1/3 of it, had more of it later, but never did finish it.
I was just a bit hungry when I went to bed, so I got 2 TBSP of peanut butter as a quick snack. It’s Peter Pan Natural, Creamy.
The strawberries and cream cheese were definitely my favorite “meal” yesterday. 🙂 I’m going to have to go out on the hunt for fresh raspberries!

My scales were up by .4 this morning, from 150 to 150.4. Just your typical fluctuations, no doubt. My scales have some kind of aversion to going below 150. 🙄 No worries, I’m not in a big rush. I could use this time to find a good local seamstress – because I am going to need A LOT of alterations done when my scales get and STAY in the 140’s, lol. 🙂
I didn’t exercise yesterday because I was sore all over from my exercise the day before. I decided to let my muscles recover, but I’m feeling GREAT this morning so I’m aiming to get in a good workout today!
