To give you some low carb meal examples with ideal LCHF macros, here are my last two days of meals – complete with my MyFitnessPal food diaries so you can see how I logged them.
Low Carb Foods featured in these two days of low carb food diaries include:
strawberries, blueberries, spinach, spring greens, cauliflower rice, pulled pork, chicken, eggs, pecans & pili nuts.
Thursday’s Low Carb Meals
Thursday I had to hit the ground running and find something to eat at my desk real quick, so I grabbed the Adapt Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bar I got in my recent Keto Box plus half cup (60 grams) of raw pecan halves.
I have NOT been a fan of Adapt Bars in the past but their NEW protein bars are actually GREAT. Really good flavor, nice chewy texture, and great macros!
For lunch I had a big beautiful salad from the local BBQ place.
It was a HUGE portion of fresh spring greens topped with pulled pork & bacon:
This is the low carb take-out I didn’t get a chance to eat on Wednesday following my photo shoot for Woman’s World Magazine, that I mentioned in my last food diary.
It was just as fresh & delicious the next day for lunch!
My low carb dinner was a cup of fresh baby spinach leaves, plus: cauliflower rice sautéed with Spicy Chili Pili Nuts and topped with grilled chicken:
The baby spinach was so fresh & delicious!
Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Thursday:

Friday’s Low Carb Meals
I started the day with a hot breakfast. 🙂 Just a simple meal: 3 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese (cubed off the block):
For lunch I finished the leftovers from dinner the night before (cauliflower rice & pili nuts w/grilled chicken) over a bed of fresh baby spinach leaves:
My low carb dinner is a favorite, and a staple in my LCHF diet: 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy Brand cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries & 18 grams of blueberries = 6 net carbs, 85% fat.
It’s a healthy “real food” meal with great macros!
Later that night I snacked on a mix of Himalayan Salt & Coconut Oil and Spicy Chili Pili Nuts while we were baking.
These Pili Nuts are still being wild harvested from volcanic soil in the Philippines so they’re incredibly nutrient-dense and an amazing source of magnesium!
They’re Certified Paleo and Keto Certified and also gluten free, organic, vegan, vegetarian, and zero net carbs. 🙂 You can read the Pili Nuts Story here.

Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Friday:
15 net carbs ~ 82% fat ~ 63 grams of protein
I mentioned we were baking last night. 🙂
We made another batch of Low Carb Blondies. YUM! ♥
That was two great days with mostly whole foods – the Adapt Bar being the one exception, which sometimes helps you stay on track in a rush. Plus at least one full cup of fresh greens each day. 🙂
I’m totally in love with frozen Cauliflower Rice as it makes such a quick & easy low carb meal! It’s really best with plenty of real butter & salt, and the Spicy Chili Pili Nuts really make that dish – adding a soft crunch and nice kick!
How are things going with you?
I would love to hear what’s going on in YOUR world this week! 🙂
