Today’s food diary includes two full days of low carb meals & macros, plus MyFitnessPal diaries so you can see how I logged those meals.
You’ll find healthy low carb foods, things you can eat on the go or make at home yourself, my new “keto addiction” lol… and a great illustration of how easy it is to eat at least 70% fat. 🙂
That seems to be the thing people struggle with most: getting enough fat in your diet. I find it super easy! Of course I eat a serving or two of pecans almost daily, which are VERY low carb / high fat.
Monday’s Low Carb Meals
For breakfast I had a great combination of healthy foods! 🙂
I mentioned in my last food diary that I was intrigued with the “PowerBlend Coconut Goji” I got in my Keto Krate box – and tried it on my “cereal.”
I had that again for breakfast on Monday. It’s 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese , 4 small strawberries + 2 tbsp Coconut Gogi: a serious “super food” – very rich in Omega 3 (a natural brain booster!) plus high fiber & protein. I stirred it all together and ate it like cereal. 😉 This bowl is 7 net carbs and 83% healthy fats…
For lunch I had 3 eggs scrambled in butter. I was out of “real cheese” so I used a slice of “fake cheese” in these. 😛 I’m so spoiled on real cheese!
For dinner I had a *serious* low carb burger from Hardee’s. 🙂 It’s the Frisco Burger in a lettuce wrap. They’ll make anything on the menu low carb for you – just ask!
I got hungry again that night because I pulled a LONG day on Monday, so I browsed around in the kitchen a bit and found a sugar free Milk Chocolate Salted Caramel Bar I totally forgot I had!
I got the candy bar in my February Keto Krate, so I had a serving of that with 30 grams of pecans – the Sea Salt Roasted Front Porch Pecans I got in my March Keto Krate:
That was SO good together. I love sweet & salty combos! 🙂
And I love Keto Krate for keeping me in fun foods to try!!
Here’s how I logged my meals for Monday:
Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals
That candy bar was SO good that I had it for breakfast yesterday. 🙂 5 squares is a serving, and only 2 net carbs. I had it with 1/2 cup (60 grams) of pecans, which was delicious. The chocolate is so smooth and creamy… totally addictive!!!
It’s the sugar free Milk Chocolate Salted Caramel Bar by KZ Clean Eating that came in the February Keto Krate. Unfortunately it is currently out of stock everywhere online, but you can sign up here to get notified when they’re back in stock.
I was out running errands later, so for lunch I had “3 sausage patties and 3 fried round eggs please” from McDonald’s. I so love their All Day Breakfast menu now!
I went out for dinner last night and ordered: Blackened Salmon with sautéed spinach & steamed broccoli. What a fabulous meal! I could only eat half of it, so I had the other half for lunch today.
I got Alfredo Sauce on the side to dip it all in. Because I love to dip. 🙂 And because Alfredo Sauce is high fat. AND because that salmon was REALLY spicy and I needed something to offset the heat, lol.

It’s after 8pm here in Tennessee as I write this, and I’m going to HAVE to make some dinner. 😛 I despise cooking, lol. I may just make eggs again! Although… I’m seriously considering low carb blueberry pancakes. 🙂
Obviously I didn’t cook AT ALL yesterday, and only made eggs the day before. That’s one thing I really LOVE about eating low carb. You don’t *have* to cook.:)
How are things going for you?
