Join us for the Fall 2016 Low Carb Challenge!
I find it’s easier to track my meals that way, and it takes a lot less time in the kitchen. When I do cook I tend to cook enough to make at least one other meal if not several.
It makes it so much easier when you have something ready to grab & eat when you get hungry!
Here’s what I’ve been eating for the last two days to give you some ideas…
Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
Somehow I missed breakfast hour on Sunday morning, so it was around noon when I finally had my usual healthy breakfast.
It’s 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries and 17.5 grams of blueberries = 6 net carbs and 85% healthy fat.
I keep pecans, cottage cheese & berries on hand because this is such an EASY healthy low carb meal to make real quick – anytime.
My berries are frozen – even the fresh berries I picked this summer were frozen right after picking. Since I only eat a few berries at a time, they never go bad on me that way.:) Plus they are much easier to slice or chop up while still slightly frozen!
Sunday afternoon is when I made the Low Carb Honey Almond Biscuits.
They were really easy to make and only took a few minutes. I made up a whole batch, cooked 4 of them to eat for lunch/dinner, and put the rest in the refrigerator (covered) to cook up as needed.
I was tired Sunday evening and didn’t feel like cooking or messing with food. 😛
I looked in the fridge and just grabbed the first thing I saw: 3 ounces of Oscar Mayer turkey, a slice of Borden Natural colby jack cheese, and I dipped it in leftover Mexican cheese dip (from my low carb Mexican take-out).
I had that quick snack on the deck and called it a night. 😉

Monday’s Low Carb Meals
For breakfast I had my Low Carb Honey Almond Biscuits topped with cream cheese and big juicy hand-picked blackberries. Delicious! 🙂
It’s nice to have something like that “ready to make.” I used 1 ounce of cream cheese across the four biscuits, and 4 LARGE blackberries.
For lunch I made sausage & fried eggs. I used Tennessee Pride mild sausage, and fried the eggs in the same skillet. Easy meal! I made half a tube of sausage (2 servings) and put the rest away for another meal.
I had one serving of the sausage with my eggs, then had sausage patties left over to use for dinner. I made Low Carb Sausage Biscuits using four more of my honey biscuits that were already pattied out and ready to bake. YUM! 🙂

It felt good to get out for a walk yesterday!
Here’s a picture of Slim and I taking a water break at the Old City Spring.
It was HOT yesterday, so I gave him a nice cool bath first to keep him cool enough for a midday walk, and we hit the spring and the river for refreshing water breaks. For him I mean – I had bottled water. 🙂
I’m in for the day with some work projects, so I’m going to do a home workout today. Then tomorrow I’m heading out on another fun adventure. It’s been awhile since I’ve been out hiking & exploring! 🙂
I’m really looking forward to it. I seriously NEED to get moving again. It’s entirely too easy to get out of the habit and become sedentary again, which is just undoing all the work I’ve put in this year to get in shape. 😛
I’m challenging you to do the same…
Let’s get moving together!!
