If you’re participating in the 2017 Low Carb Challenge (feel free to join in anytime!) we do weigh-ins every Monday. Here’s the Week 10 Weigh-In for the Facebook group, or you can weigh in here by leaving a comment below on this post.
Happy Monday! 🙂 How was your weekend? Good I hope.
Mine was quiet and I ate simple, as usual. I did NOT exercise this weekend though. 🙄 That’s because I have a nasty kink in my shoulder/back. I’m anxious to get back to my workouts!!
I did try a few new low carb foods though. Some I liked, some confused/intrigued me (lol), and one I did NOT like – at all. 😛 Ack! haha
I can’t wait to hear what you ate, and how things are going with you!
Here’s a complete photo tour of my low carb meals this weekend, plus my macros & MyFitnessPal diaries for the last two days too so you can see how I logged those meals…
Saturday’s Low Carb Meals
My low carb breakfast had walnuts instead of pecans for a change. 🙂
It’s 1/2 cup (60 grams) of walnut pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese & 4 small strawberries = 7 net carbs and 80% healthy fat.
My low carb lunch was a very simple plate of eggs: 3 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese. My go-to meal when I want something quick & easy!
My low carb dinner was a delicious pan seared pork chop with roasted asparagus. The asparagus was just roasted in the oven with butter & salt. Super quick meal!
I was off schedule all weekend with late naps, and late nights, so I had a 4th meal later Saturday night. I made my usual “cereal” which is a quick healthy meal anytime I don’t feel like cooking. 🙂
I was intrigued with this PowerBlend Coconut Goji I got in my Keto Krate on Saturday, so I decided to test it out – and put it on my “cereal.”
I was intrigued by it because it’s not really a “food” but rather something you’re supposed to add to your favorite foods. (?) I thought it was going to taste like dirt, just from my initial sniff in the bag once I opened it. It looked interesting though… and it didn’t really have a flavor. It didn’t taste like coconut at all like I expected it to…
I added just one tablespoon to my cereal (instead of the 3 TBSP serving). It’s 1 net carb per TBSP and high fiber & protein, and very nutrient dense and packed with Omega 3’s.
It was actually really good. 🙂 No real flavor, like I said – but I liked the added texture. And I especially liked the extra health benefits!
Here’s how I logged my meals for Saturday:
Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
I kicked the day off with cookies, pecans & coffee! 🙂 They’re low carb Snickerdoodle cookies from Keto Kookie. That was a nice combo…
For lunch I had a pan fried pork chop with 3 fried eggs. That was *almost* a zero carb meal. Eggs are .4 carbs each, so it was 1.2 carbs total.
Someone on instagram asked about seasonings. Or my lack of, actually. The pork chop & eggs only had salt on them. I actually LOVE the natural flavors of my foods now, since I started eating so simple. 🙂
For dinner I had cheesy eggs again…
And look: I added pepper! haha
I was up late again last night so I decided to try to more things from my Keto Krate box that I got on Saturday: the roasted pecans and the Adapt Bar.
I love the pecans! The Adapt bar… was WEIRD. It was kind of chalky and hard? I don’t know how to describe it. It stuck to my teeth in a weird way as I tried to chew it too.
I did MAKE myself finish it, lol – ack! I’m not a big fan of lemon anyway, so maybe that was the worst part – but the texture was super odd too. 😛
The pecans were delicious though. 🙂
