The Spring Low Carb Challenge just kicked off. 🙂 You can join in anytime!
Get all the details at that link, or on the low carb challenge page…
Below is a quick photo tour of my food diary for Monday and Tuesday, plus my MyFitnessPal food diaries so you can see how I logged those meals.
Hopefully this will give you some ideas you can USE along the way. 😉
Monday’s Low Carb Meals
I had a very early appointment with my doctor so I had to grab something easy to eat on the go. I grabbed 2.5 servings (75) grams of pecan halves – which are very low carb, very high fat, and very filling!
For lunch I sauteed some broccoli slaw in real butter, then topped it with CRISP roasted vegetables. These were the leftover veggies from my last food diary, and I put them in the oven until they were VERY crispy. 🙂
It was green beans, broccoli, garlic cloves, cherry tomatoes & zucchini.
Broccoli slaw is awesome raw or cooked, and a personal favorite of mine! You can usually find it in the produce section at Wal-Mart or Kroger stores near the bagged salads.
For dinner I made a simple plate of eggs, scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese (cut & cubed off the block).
I had a late nap earlier, so I was up late that night and ate again. This time I had my favorite “low carb cereal” which is: 1/2 cup of pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy Brand cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries.
Here’s how I logged Monday’s meals – and I just realized I forgot to add the roasted veggies that topped my broccoli slaw for lunch. 🙄 😳 Oops!
Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals
I was out running errands on Tuesday morning, so I stopped by McDonald’s and got sausage and eggs. I actually ordered extra, so I’d have plenty to eat for maybe two meals.
I just asked for “4 sausage patties and 4 round fried eggs please.”
I ate maybe 1 1/2 of each. I was feeling really sick, but needed to eat enough to at least take the round of meds the doc has me on. I have a horrible upper respiratory infection that’s been lingering on for months – and turned nasty on me. 🙄
After a few bites and some meds, I decided to go sit in the sunshine for awhile to shake the chill and just take a break. I found a big flat rock in the sun across from Twin Falls at Rock Island State Park and sat there ALL afternoon. 🙂
I was finally hungry when I left there so I stopped at the market near the state park and got a quick dinner. Starting with a side salad with ranch dressing:
I ordered a hamburger steak, added mozzarella & mushrooms, and for my other side I asked for sliced tomatoes. I didn’t end up eating the tomatoes though, as there were plenty on my salad.
I came home and crashed for a few hours, and then I was up ALL night – literally until 7am the next morning. 😛 I got up and finished my sausage & eggs from McDonald’s earlier, then late in the night I had my favorite “cereal” again…

I enjoyed my day in the sun yesterday. I did take some work with me, and my Inner Guide Planner too. I journaled out some goals, worked on ideas, and made some gratitude notes. It was a gorgeous day here in Tennessee for early April at around 80 degrees and sunny. 🙂
I’m sick of being sick, and hoping this round of antibiotics and meds FINALLY gets me over this. I’ve been sick for three full months now. 🙄 I’m SO ready to feel better!
Meanwhile I’m continuing to eat low carb, eat healthy, and get as much exercise as I have the energy to do – including a 7 mile hike last Saturday. It takes a lot to slow me down, lol.
Anyway, I hope my LCHF food diaries above give you some ideas on how to eat low carb on the go, how to meet your macros, and how to keep it simple.
