Fast, Easy Low Carb Food Ideas, Plus: Date Night Dinner!


Keto SnacksI dirtied exactly ONE skillet in two full days of low carb eating, lol.

Call that lazy or smart, but either way at least there weren’t many dishes to do! πŸ˜›

That’s mostly because I’ve been home alone, eating low carb for one, and super busy with work this week.

Then there was “date night” last night, which was a beautifully delicious low carb dinner – with no cooking! πŸ™‚

You can see what I ate on Wednesday here too, which wasn’t much (only 10 net carbs) because I had a full day between working and hiking.

I’m still pondering “my find” from that post ^ too, btw.;)

I hope these food diaries and low carb meal ideas prove helpful to you when you need something quick & easy, or you’re looking for ways to mix things up a bit.

My Low Carb Meals on Thursday

For breakfast I had my favorite healthy LCHF food combo: 1/2 cup (60 grams) of pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 sliced strawberries.

It’s one of my low carb staples because it’s SO easy, and because it has perfect LCHF Macros: 5 net carbs, 85% healthy fat.

I also finished some sausage & fried eggs I had leftover from McDonald’s later that morning. There wasn’t much of it, and it wasn’t worth taking a picture of (lol).

For lunch I made a plate of delicious low carb foods: strawberries, pecans, Lily’s Sugar Free Chocolate and peanut butter. Yum! πŸ™‚

For dinner I made a simple plate of cheesy eggs: 4 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese (cubed off the block):

My Low Carb Meals on Friday

I had a beautiful low carb breakfast. πŸ™‚

I ate two Coconut Smart Cakes (which are zero net carbs!) topped with kosher cream cheese, fresh strawberries and pecan pieces:

You can order these on Netrition in 3 flavors here.

That was such a delicious “sweet & crunchy” combo! πŸ™‚

I had a super busy work day, so I just grabbed 1/2 cup (60 grams) of pecan halves to eat at my desk for lunch:

I met Aaron for dinner and enjoyed another BEAUTIFUL meal of Porchetta (Italian Pork Roast, super tender & stuffed with herbs) with asparagus and broccoli.

I spread a pat of real butter over the herb-roasted pork steak, making it even MORE rich & delicious!

I was only able to eat about half of that, so I brought the other half home and had it for my lunch today. πŸ™‚

I had a GREAT time hosting the Low Carb Classes this week, and really enjoyed the great discussions we had in those classes. πŸ™‚

All three replays are now available, so you can get instant access to those & enjoy all the great training. Plus I’m doing a BONUS 4th live session next week!

I found a brand new place I want to go hike, and I’m feeling antsy for some sunshine and SERIOUS exercise, so that’s what I have lined up for tomorrow. That and potting some houseplants I rooted, which I’ll probably do over coffee & sunrise in the morning. πŸ™‚

How are things going with you?

I would LOVE to hear how things are going with you now that the summer is starting to wind down, and how your own low carb journey is going…

    Lynn, I just love reading your blogs (when I get the time) you are so inspiring. I lost a total of 88lbs. in abut a year and it’s been about a year since that and the scales have began to go the wrong way. I know I haven’t been as strict with myself as I once was and need to get my head back in the game because I still have about 30 lbs left to loose. What advise can you give me?

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Sarah,

      First, congrats on your amazing weight loss!! πŸ™‚

      The best advice I can offer is to go back to the basics, eat super simple, track & log everything you eat and do: 20 net carbs max, 70% fat minimum. That will get your body back in ketosis and back in fat burning mode. πŸ˜‰

      And if you start now… you’ll look AMAZING for the holidays!!

      • Sarah Knox says:

        Thanks for the quick response! I am going to start this tomorrow, I would love to look and feel better for the holidays!

        • Lynn Terry says:

          It’s good motivation. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you’re on board! We’ll start another Official Low Carb Challenge on September 1st, but until then… follow along here with me, because I continue year-round right here, so you’ll have a partner. πŸ˜‰ Keep me posted!!
