I got right back on track yesterday after my higher carb day on Sunday with that big ridiculous salad -lol.
It was a super long day though (8am-3am), so I ended up having 4 full meals totaling 30 net carbs (10 more than my usual 20 net carbs/day).
I ate super healthy and very clean though, and even got in a great workout! I think you’ll enjoy these EASY low carb meal ideas…
Monday’s Easy, Healthy Low Carb Meals
I had my favorite “Low Carb Cereal” for breakfast. I called it “Red, White & Blueberry” which was perfect for July 4th. 🙂
It’s 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 2 strawberries and 1/8 cup (17.5 grams) of blueberries. That came to 6 net carbs and 85% healthy fats.
For lunch I finished off the squash, sausage & spinach dish that I had leftover. That was delicious! I simply fried up ground sausage then added steamed spinach and cream cheese to it – and topped it with yellow squash. Then I baked/broiled it in the oven to cook the squash.
I always like to cook up extra when I do cook (which is rare, lol) because leftovers make for EASY meals. Speaking of, I had leftover sausage so for dinner I whipped up some fried eggs to go with that:
I mentioned it was a VERY long day. Around midnight I got hungry again and made a FABULOUS bowl of nuts & berries (similar to my breakfast). This time I used raspberries instead of strawberries though – and double the blueberries. 🙂
It’s 1/2 cup pecans, 17.5 grams of raspberries, 35 grams of blueberries and 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese. This came to 8 net carbs, which is high for me… but WOW was it great! haha – YUM!
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary For Monday
I got my workout in while the berries were thawing for my midnight snack last night… because what else are you going to do – stand there and watch berries thaw?! 😛 lol.
I often do my abs & arms workout while half a pot of coffee is brewing. I say sneak in those workouts anytime you can! 🙂
I mentioned recently that I went blackberry picking, and I’ll be picking fresh blueberries soon too. I love this time of year. 🙂 I enjoy frozen berries too of course, but there’s nothing like fresh berries off the vine!
I’ve been looking for a good berry dessert recipe, like a cobbler – but low carb style. I was thinking I could use my Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe to create a “blackberry cobbler/crumble” type dessert. Perhaps use the cookie dough as a bottom crust layer with a “crumble” over the top too? A cream cheese drizzle would top that off nicely! That’s what’s on my “kitchen science experiment” list for the week…
I got my first Keto Krate Snack Box in the mail this week too, so stay tuned for the details on that. It has some really cool low carb snacks & products in it that I can’t wait to try. I’ll do that, and share all the details with you. It was a FULL box. I love food delivery, or anything that means I don’t have to shop and cook!
It was a very good day with raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, spinach, squash, pecans, eggs, etc. Lots of delicious nutritious foods & healthy fats!
How Are Things Going For You?
I always look forward to hearing from you. 🙂

p.s. I’ll be hosting another FUN Low Carb Challenge SOON so make sure you’re on the list to get details & updates! You should go ahead and start NOW though, and just follow along here with me. I’ll eat low carb with you! And we’ll have a head start on everyone else. 🙂 haha… *cheers*
