This low carb food diary features two full days of easy LCHF meals, complete with my MyFitnessPal diaries so you can see how I logged each meal.
Low carb foods featured in today’s post include:
Shrimp, yellow squash, asparagus, yummy spices & sauces, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, nuts, eggs, and two delicious low carb desserts.
I love fast, easy low carb meals. 🙂
I also love cooking up enough to enjoy another nice low carb meal of leftovers… without having to cook again.;)
My macronutrient goals are simple: 20 net carbs max, 70% fat minimum
Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
For breakfast I had my favorite “low carb cereal” made with 1/2 cup (60 grams) of pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy Brand cottage cheese (hiding under there!) and 4 diced strawberries. That comes to 5 net carbs and 85% healthy fat.
For lunch, Aaron and I cooked together. 🙂
We made shrimp & roasted vegetables – it ended up being roasted asparagus and seared squash. I’ll explain…
The two things we used in this meal, besides olive oil & real butter, were Oh My Spice: Sweet & Savory (which is GREAT on seafood!) and the Primal Kitchen Greek Avocado Oil Vinaigrette. Both have come favorites for low carb cooking!!
The shrimp was seasoned with the Sweet & Savory spice and sauteed in real butter, with Spicy Chili Pili Nuts to give it a nice kick and a delicious buttery crunch. 🙂
I put the frozen squash & asparagus on a baking sheet (with parchment paper) and used olive oil, garlic powder and the Avocado Oil Vinaigrette. To roast veggies just put them in the oven like that on 350 degrees to desired roastedness.;)
My shrimp weren’t getting done fast enough, and I like my asparagus roasted CRISP, so I took those out and seared them in a non-stick skillet real quick.
It made for a delicious low carb meal!
The flavor combination of the Avocado Oil Vinaigrette, Sweet & Savory spice, and the Spicy Chili nuts was AMAZING. 🙂 It had great flavor, with just enough KICK to make it fun.;)
For dinner I had a Cream Cheese Pecan Blondie with 4 fresh strawberries. Those are so delicious – and substantial enough to make a meal of. 🙂
I also had a few bites of my two favorite flavors of Halo Top low carb ice cream that day. 🙂 That’s the BEST low carb ice cream you can get!!

Monday’s Low Carb Meals
Breakfast was 3 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese (cubed off the block), plus 1/4 cup (35 grams) of blueberries & raspberries:
For lunch I pulled out the leftovers from the day before, because we cooked up A LOT of shrimp & veggies! 🙂
It was just as good the next day. 😉
And it was A LOT of food, so I made two low carb meals out of it…
I also finished off the LAST of the Low Carb Blondies. 🙂
My MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Monday:

I like my asparagus either very lightly steamed, and dipped in mayo or ranch, or roasted VERY crisp. Both ways are delicious. I just don’t like it slimy. 😛 lol
I just realized all of my low carb meals for these two full days are all vegetarian friendly. Well, except for the shrimp – so that would make an easy pescatarian meal.
That was NOT intentional, lol…
I think I’ll have a big juicy steak tomorrow! 🙂
