Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 75 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s NEVER too late to join if you haven’t already!
Note: I haven’t set a date for the next 90 Day Low Carb Challenge yet, but the group stays open & active year round. I may do a short mini-challenge in July before the next big challenge. 🙂 Join in and stay tuned!!
I found something random in the cabinet yesterday while I was browsing around in the kitchen… and decided to get creative.
That didn’t turn out so well, lol. Not terrible, but I think I figured out a delicious way to fix it! 🙂
I’ll share the details with you, along with my meals for the day, and how I plan to fix this “experiment” into a great low carb recipe…
Day 75: Friday’s Low Carb Meals
I had my usual healthy breakfast. 🙂 It’s 1/2 cup crushed pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries.
It comes to 5 net carbs and 85% healthy fats.
Here’s what I found in the cabinet (left by the kids maybe??). It’s Knorr Vegetable Recipe Mix. I flipped the package over and scanned over it.
ICK – deadly ingredients 😛 (lol)… but fairly low carb. I decided to try it. I was more afraid of ruining half a tub of Daisy Brand sour cream than anything. 😛
Here’s the ingredients so you can see what I mean… 😯
It seemed promising though…
I realized right away that I really needed some crisp cold cucumber slices to truly enjoy this dip, but I just grabbed what I had on hand: salami, pepperoni, cheese & pecans – and made a “finger food” plate of it. 🙂
I kinda just made “snack stacks”…
It was a very salty lunch. 😛 The dip was WAY too stout too. I’m going to fix that though. No way I’m letting all that Daisy sour cream go to waste!! I’ll share more about my ideas for it in a second…
For dinner I went super simple and just made sausage & fried eggs.
It kind of looks like a smile. 🙂
I also had a Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding snack cup late last night, which put me a little over for the day. That and my ridiculous amount of coffee (and creamer, lol). 🙄 I need to work on that!!
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Friday:
Those 100 ab rolls and 10 tricep dips were TOUGH last night. 😛
I am SO committed to toning up and getting in amazing shape though, so I’m really PUSHING myself and trying to make exercise a daily habit.
What I love about toning (vs cardio) is it takes MUCH less time. 🙂
It was my friends on Instagram and their great comments that inspired me to fix the dip. So I ran to the store and got shrimp, spinach and cucumbers. 🙂
Stay tuned to see what I come up with. 🙂
It should be MUCH better tomorrow, lol…
And YES – I’m going to have DIP FOR DAYS, haha. I’m already trying to come up with creative ideas for ways I can use this “dip” in a variety of low carb recipes so I don’t get sick of it. 😛 If you have any ideas, I’m all ears!!
How are things going on your end?
I look forward to hearing from you…
