Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned that I’ll be featured in an August issue of Woman’s World Magazine?
That will be on shelves next week! 🙂
I won’t be on the front cover, but it’s the August 28th issue – and it has lots of carbs on the front cover (lol). It DOES say “Fast-Food Atkins” in big bold letters on the cover though, so look for that.;)
I know you can get the Kindle edition of Woman’s World Magazine (online version) free for 30 days, and you can read that on any computer or device.
Anyway, here are my low carb meals for the last two days – complete with my MyFitnessPal diaries so you can see how I logged those meals.
I had easy low carb breakfasts at home, a fast food low carb meal… and a low carb date at a really cool place with a delicious meal!
My Low Carb Meals on Wednesday
I had my favorite healthy breakfast: pecans, cottage cheese and strawberries. 🙂
I had a little more than usual, 5 strawberries instead of 4, and 75 grams of pecan pieces instead of 60 grams, but the same 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese.
It came to 6 net carbs and 86% healthy fat.
It was a busy workday, so I snacked around throughout the afternoon – on low carb blondies and low carb brownies Aaron baked the other night. 🙂
Here’s the recipe for my Low Carb Cream Cheese Pecan Blondies.
I had half a brownie too – we made a double batch, with walnuts this time instead of pecans, and they’re so thicky & fudgy! 🙂
Here’s the original Low Carb Brownie Recipe.
For dinner I grabbed a Low Carb Thickburger from Hardee’s while I was out running errands. It’s the Frisco Burger and I simply said “Make it low carb, please” (which means: lettuce wrap instead of bun).
Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Wednesday:
My Low Carb Meals on Thursday
On Thursday morning I made eggs for breakfast: 4 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese.
People always ask me how I make my eggs…
I melt a full TBSP of real butter in a nonstick skillet (on medium, “5” on my stove). I crack the eggs into the melted butter and scramble them in the skillet.
As they are cooking, I add cheese I cubed up off the block. I use colby jack cheese, about half ounce per egg – for very cheesy eggs. 🙂 I chop up the cheese in advance of course. Then just finish scrambling nonstop until done. Easy!
I couldn’t eat the whole plate of eggs for breakfast, so I had maybe 2/3 of that plate – and finished the rest around lunchtime after some consulting work.
Then Aaron took me out to dinner. 🙂
We went to a new place called Smooth Rapids that has a deck overlooking the river, and a very health conscious owner! Not only do they offer lettuce wraps for any of their sandwiches, they also had vegan options on the menu.
It wasn’t on the menu at all (or ANY salad for that matter) but I asked- and they DID have a “side salad” option to sub for the usual pub sides. And it was amazingly delicious!! 🙂
I got that on the side with a big juicy hamburger steak topped with sauteed mushrooms & onions:

As you can see, I’m keeping it simple as usual. 🙂
I really enjoyed the new restaurant, and especially that the side salad had fresh spinach & spring greens – instead of iceberg lettuce, which basically has no nutritional value at all. I was impressed with my low carb meal there!
I have rarely ever had a problem eating out and keeping it low carb…
How are things going with you?
