I was floating around 135 pounds before I got sick, so I’m headed back in that direction now. 😉
I’ll show you what I ate yesterday. I didn’t cook at all, lol – just ate very easy low carb foods.
It was a LONG day, plus it was Monday! I got up at 3am and was up until 11pm, so I went over my net carbs goal… but my macros were great.
And I woke up 3 pounds lighter this morning, so the water weight is dropping – which is nice. I had a hard time getting back in (or staying in) ketosis while I was sick and on various meds.
Here are all of my low carb foods yesterday, including a treat last night!
Monday’s Low Carb Meals
Did you know yesterday was Strawberry Day? 🍓 🙂 I had my favorite healthy low carb breakfast: 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small strawberries & 17.5 grams of blueberries = 6 net carbs & 85% healthy fats.
I stir it all together and call it cereal!
For lunch I threw together a variety of healthy low carb snack foods:
30 grams of pecan halves, a pork/pineapple Roam Stick, a mozzarella string cheese, and the “Jack, Almonds & Pumpkin Seeds” snack pack. 💙 That came to 548 calories, 5 net carbs, 79% healthy fat – so it was fun, easy, tasty & filling!
I really liked the “Jack, Almonds & Pumpkin Seeds” low carb snack pack. A LOT. I’m going to order a variety of flavors for my hiking trips. It’s the perfect healthy snack to keep on hand!
Have you tried any of the different flavors yet? I was just thinking… it would make an amazing salad topper! 😉 They’re on Netrition here, but only in one flavor.
You can get ALL THE FLAVORS on Amazon though!
For dinner I still had strawberries on my mind, and still didn’t feel like cooking (lol), so I just had my “low carb cereal” again – minus the blueberries this time.
After dinner I decided to grab something sweet, and found these ChocoRite Sugar Free Milk Chocolate Pecan Clusters from one of my Keto Krates. YUM!
It was the BEST low carb candy I’ve ever eaten – ever. Most sugar free pecan clusters are hard and way too chewy, but this one was creamy… and perfectly delicious. 🙂
I have to order more of those!
That, plus eating straight out of a pint of Halo Top low carb mint chip ice cream (and 8 coffees with creamer!) put me way over my usual “20 net carbs” for yesterday. But like I said, it was a super long day. And it was worth it. 🙂
Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Monday:
Net Carbs: 34
Total Carbs: 60
Protein: 63 grams
80% Fat / 13% Protein
Water: 48 ounces
I love that eating low carb doesn’t require a lot of planning or meal prep. I would totally fail if it did, lol. Yesterday was a super busy work day, so being able to grab easy low carb foods and just keep going was really helpful.
I love all the fun new foods I get to try out of my Keto Krate boxes – like the snack pack and the pecan clusters. Not to mention all the other great stuff I’ve fallen in love with after getting to sample it that way! They’ll be shipping a new box next week, so it’ll be fun to see what we get in March. 🙂
I did cook this morning, btw. I made eggs… lol.
How are things going for you?
