I do own vegetables! lol…
I’m planning to cook today actually, since I’m in for the weekend. I’ll probably cook up enough to last a few days too, because that just makes it easier. 🙂
My weight is not moving this week, well except to bounce up/down just slightly.
That could be for any number of reasons, likely because I’m not sleeping enough – or well enough, but I’m not concerned about it. I just keep eating low carb and exercising… because that’s what’s good for my body!
Anyway, here’s what I ate yesterday…
Friday’s Low Carb Meals
I had my favorite healthy low carb breakfast: 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries. (5 net carbs and 85% healthy fats)
For lunch I just made a quick low carb snack of Oscar Mayer smoked turkey (2oz) and 1/4 cup pecans (30 grams). That came to 2 net carbs.
I also had two chocolate chip Keto Kookies. 🙂
These things are “dangerously delicious” lol, but fortunately only 1 net carb per cookie. You can check them out at http://www.KetoKookie.com
For dinner I decided to try a few things out of my Keto Krate box. I tested a few of the low carb foods. That was fun. 🙂 Then I settled on the Flackers: organic flax seed crackers, and made a simple “zero carb” Tuna Salad to go with them.
I’ve never tried anything with flax seed before yesterday. Interesting flavor & texture! It was definitely nice for a crunchy keto snack… and would be great on my hikes. The flavor reminds me of a cross between sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.
You can find Flackers on Netrition, the cheapest source I’ve found.
Have you tried Flackers before, or do you use flax seed in your low carb / keto diet?

I read about a new idea for cooking with parchment paper pouches yesterday that really intrigued me. It looks like such a quick & easy way to make a delicious low carb meal for one – or even for the whole family. Have you ever tried that??
I love the idea of a no-fuss all-in-one meal with easy cleanup! 🙂
I was thinking of just putting my chicken & veggies in a casserole dish in the oven with some alfredo sauce… but I may try “steaming it in a parchment pouch” instead. I’ll have to see if I have parchment paper left. I use it a lot, lol.
Like I said, I’m in for the weekend. My plan is to eat vegetables (GRIN!) and get in some good workouts. I didn’t exercise yesterday, but I was wiped out after a walk the night before and the big hike on Wednesday.
What about you? How are things going on your end?
I always look forward to hearing from you! 🙂
