Join us for the Fall 2016 Low Carb Challenge!
Below are all of the EASY low carb meals I had on Monday and Tuesday, plus my MyFitnessPal food diaries too so you can see exactly how I logged those meals.
I tend to eat super simple, but I prefer quick & easy (and less time & mess in the kitchen -lol).
I find I lose weight faster eating as few ingredients at a time as possible too, instead of more complex recipes.
See the 3 Ingredients Rule for more about that.
Simple meals are easier to log & track too! 🙂
Monday’s Low Carb Meals
I start most days with this healthy low carb breakfast. It’s EASY with NO cooking (yay! lol), it has perfect LCHF macros and it’s all real foods with great nutrients.
It’s 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand 4% cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries and 17.5 grams of blueberries. (6 net carbs and 85% healthy fats)
I had a fabulous low carb lunch/dinner of baked chicken breast with organic broccoli florets. It was cooked in “cream of chicken with herbs” soup but I didn’t eat much of the sauce. So simple and so delicious! 🙂
Joe brought me this dinner, which was super nice! I love low carb delivery, lol.
I ate half of it, then the other half later – it made two meals for me.:) He just puts the chicken, broccoli and soup all in a baking dish and bakes it at 350 until done – easy!
I had a late snack of Rosemary Flackers with Laughing Cow creamy swiss wedges:
The Flackers are cheapest on Netrition and come in 3 flavors: Rosemary, Savory & Cinnamon. Or if you have Amazon Prime you can get free shipping that way: http://amzn.to/29wPo8J but Netrition has low flat rate shipping w/any size order too.

Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals
I had my usual breakfast again yesterday…
What’s under all those beautiful low carb berries that are rich in antioxidants and nutrients? Daisy brand cottage cheese! Why? Because it has the fewest ingredients, all real food, and it has the best flavor on the market.
Compare Daisy against any other label on the shelf on your next trip to the grocery store! You’ll SEE why it’s the ONLY cottage cheese I’ll buy. 😉
I had a very easy low carb lunch. It was a Kentucky Legend Ham Steak with Broccoli Slaw, both cooked in the skillet together with a TBSP of real butter.
For a quick snack later I had Low Carb Cinnamon Nut & Flax Granola with pecan halves mixed in. The cinnamon granola has a sweet tingly feel on the tongue. 🙂
My dinner last night included Broccoli Slaw again. I always find it in the produce section at Wal-Mart or Kroger. This time I had it with Johnsonville kielbasa, both cooked in the skillet together with a dab of real butter again.
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Tuesday:
Net Carbs: 22
Total Carbs: 55
Protein: 56 Grams
79% Fat, 15% Protein
Water: 72 ounces
As you can see, all of my meals are very simple. I love the Kentucky Legend ham steaks and center cut pork chops. They’re already cooked so they make for EASY meals when you want to throw something together real quick.:)
Broccoli Slaw is a favorite too. It’s only 2 net carbs for 1 cup, and it’s great for any kind of stir fry or even in cold salads. You could saute it in butter and top it with alfredo chicken (using it in place of rice or pasta) too.
The easy oven dishes are great too…
You can put pretty much anything in one big baking dish and call it dinner. 🙂 I like to use Alfredo sauce and Chicken Broth in mine to make it lower carb.
See: Low Carb Oven Stew Recipe. The “alfredo broth” is delicious!
How are things going for you?
It’s day 24 and we’re now in the 4th week of the challenge. 🙂 How are you doing with your low carb meals & macro tracking? Any questions or struggles? I would love to hear your results so far. Leave a comment and let’s talk!
