I had 4 meals and 6 mugs of coffee yesterday. Each meal was around 400-500 calories, for a total of 1856 calories and only 22 net carbs.
I did actually cook for a change. ONCE. 🙂 I made scrambled eggs, lol.
Otherwise I kept it easy & simple, as usual!
Here are all of four of my low carb meals yesterday, including low carb fast food & take-out…
Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals
My low carb breakfast: 3 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese.
I use a full TBSP of real butter, melt it in a skillet over medium heat, cube up colby jack cheese off the block (about half ounce per egg, this time 1.69 ounces), crack 3 eggs into the melted butter & scramble them right in the skillet – add a dash of salt and the cubes of cheese and scramble until done.
I got up early (again) and had a full work day, so I grabbed a quick early “snack lunch” to eat at my desk: 30 grams of pecans, and 1.41 ounces of Pili Nuts (all I had left!).
I was hungry again by late afternoon while I was out running errands, so I stopped by Hardee’s for a quick Low Carb Grilled Chicken Club in a lettuce wrap.
My low carb dinner: healthy take-out from Gondola! I had grilled chicken with roasted broccoli & cauliflower and a side salad. I ate one chicken breast, most of the veggies and ALL of the salad. I saved the other breast for leftovers. 🙂
Here’s how I logged my meals, and how my macros worked out…

I’m very sad that I am now OUT of Pili Nuts. 😛
They are the most unique & addictive nut I’ve ever tasted. They’re HUGE, so buttery soft, and incredibly nutrient dense. Plus they’re only 1 carb per ounce!

I can’t believe it’s March already…
We usually get a good snow or two in March here in Tennessee, but then it’s SPRING! And of course the current challenge ends on March 31st – so this is a good time to FINISH STRONG. 🙂
