I had easy low carb meals over the weekend, so I’ll share those with you.
I also got in a nice (but short!) nature hike with my great dane, Slim yesterday. He was misbehaving 😛 so we had to cut it short, but it was fun to get out for a bit at least. 🙂
Below is a complete photo tour of 3 days worth of low carb meals, plus my macros & MyFitnessPal diaries for the last three days too – so you can see how I logged those meals.
They’re all VERY easy meals & the “casserole” I made last night was really good. 🙂
p.s. I see now why I was out of pecans by this morning!! lol…
Friday’s Low Carb Meals
I had a busy work day on Friday so I kicked off the morning with a half cup (60 grams) of pecan halves at my desk. Right off the scale even, lol.
I love that little Ozeri kitchen scale. 🙂 It’s SO convenient. I use it for everything! It’s cheap – and comes in other cool colors too.;)
I finally got up and made a “meal” which was my favorite low carb cereal made with 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small strawberries & 17.5 grams of blueberries.
It comes to 6 net carbs and 85% healthy fat, so it has perfect LCHF macros!
For dinner… I had breakfast. 🙂 3 fried eggs with hog jowl, which is like bacon on steroids! It was delicious, and an easy one skillet meal.
I pulled a long day, with a late afternoon nap, so I was up late that evening… and had my “cereal” again – this time with just strawberries:
Here’s how I logged Friday’s meals:
Saturday’s Low Carb Meals
Saturday was a long, quiet day at home… and I spent the entire day WRITING. I’m working on some whitepapers for my consulting business, so I kept my meals simple all day and stayed focused. 🙂
I had pecans at my desk early that morning again…
There was hog jowl leftover from the night before, so I heated that up in the skillet and made cheesy scrambled eggs to go with it for a quick lunch.
My low carb dinner was leftovers from a restaurant meal: blackened salmon with sautéed spinach & steamed broccoli.
It’s about half the salmon I had so around 4 ounces, and I just stirred it all together and dipped it in Alfredo sauce. 🙂 That was delicious!
I also had a serving of Halo Top Creamery low carb ice cream that night…

Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
I had my favorite “low carb cereal” with just pecans, cottage cheese & strawberries. Sometimes I get lazy and don’t thaw or dice the blueberries. 🙂
I had a second breakfast for lunch: bacon & cheesy eggs:
Later in the afternoon I went out with a friend and my great dane, Slim to Lost Creek for a fun nature walk… and grabbed a quick low carb cheeseburger from Hardee’s on the way. I ordered it plain since I was eating in the car. No dripping that way, lol. 🙂
Dinner last night was a thick pan fried pork chop with cheesy veggies. Ricky fried a piece of bacon in skillet with the chops for flavor, so I ate that too. 🙂
The veggies are just steamed broccoli & cauliflower topped with mozzarella then crumbled Cello Whisps – and baked in the oven for a nice crunchy topping. 🙂
That was delicious! It’s not really a “casserole” – just steamed veggies baked with the cheese & Whisps for something a little more fun that just plain old veggies. 🙂
Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Sunday:

These FUN fitness motivation stickers are handmade by Living Life Rosie and available on Amazon here. You can get them in glossy or matte (glossy is only .50 more, so that’s what I picked!). She has other really cool handmade items too. I thought that was neat, that she makes them herself. 🙂 And just north of me in Kentucky!
I’ve been collecting fun stuff for my InnerGuide Goal Planner like stencils and doodle markers and motivational stickers. I’m VERY excited about setting and reaching ambitious health goals this year, and feeling CREATIVE about it! 🙂
Oh – and as for my own weight, it’s still fluctuating… so I’m just ignoring it. 🙄 LOL. I’m still not 100% well and having to take over-the-counter meds (sinus, cough, Advil, etc) so I think that’s the culprit. I just keep eating low carb and resting plenty…
The scales will work themselves out.;)
