I got my November Keto Krate box yesterday, and was excited to see some of my favorite low carb chocolates in it!
They are shipping this box next business day right now, until they run out. You can sign up here and use Promo Code FIVE2017 for a discount.
I’ll show you what’s in it too (below) and also share my low carb meals and MyFitnessPal logs for the last three days…
The November Keto Krate Box:
My Low Carb Meals on Saturday
In my last food diary I mentioned we made a low carb cheesecake, so I finished that off for breakfast on Saturday morning. 🙂
It was especially good with ChocZero White Chocolate drizzled over the top!
For lunch I decided to try this smoked sausage I picked up at the store. It’s Oscar Mayer Selects Natural Roasted Tomatoes, Basil & Oregano “Italian Style Herb” flavor:
It was VERY flavorful! I think it will make a great addition to low carb pasta, so I’m going to try that out this week. 😉
I had it for lunch with two fried eggs, which were big jumbo farm fresh eggs. Those are SO rich and delicious…
My friend Carrie and I went to dinner that night, and met at the Gondola Pizza & Steakhouse – a Greek/Italian place.
I had the Philadelphia Chicken with bacon instead of onions, so it was two grilled chicken breasts smothered with: sauteed mushrooms, mozzarella and crisp bacon slices.
Plus roasted veggies as my side, and ranch to dip my chicken in:
I only ate one of the chicken breasts (half the main entree) and most of the veggies – except the carrots, I picked those out and brought them home for my great dane. 😉
I just realized I forgot to log the ranch dressing. 🙄

My Low Carb Meals on Sunday
I didn’t have breakfast on Sunday until closer to lunch, so I just finished off my leftovers from the night before – the other smothered chicken breast and what was left of the broccoli:
For lunch I made a bowl of “low carb cereal” with 30 grams of raw pecan halves, 1/4 cup of Daisy brand cottage cheese, and 2 servings (50 grams) of Chunky Musli mix:
Both of my first two meals were later in the day, so I just had a Double Chocolate Low Carb Cookie that night – and warmed up, it tastes like a chewy fudgy brownie! 🙂

My Low Carb Meals on Monday
Aaron brought me another flavor of D’s Naturals No Cow Bars to try, and I liked this one A LOT better than the chocolate banana flavor I had last time. It was less chalky and much better.
I had one bar for breakfast with 30 grams of raw pecan halves, and the other bar later that day for a snack.
For lunch I had cheesy scrambled eggs with more of the Oscar Mayer smoked sausages. Those have such a great flavor to them!
I teach until 8pm on Monday nights, so Aaron brought me low carb take-out from Applebee’s and we enjoyed a late dinner together.
I had the Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp with broccoli instead of potatoes. It’s on the 2-for-$20 menu so we both got a side salad too, but I saved mine to eat for another meal.;)
I ate *most* of that, about 75% of it – so I’ll have the leftover chicken on my leftover salad for dinner tonight. 😉
Oh, and I screwed up my MFP diary with my bar entries -lol:

I had so much fun catching up with my friend Carrie this weekend. 🙂 We’ve been friends since my senior year of high school, and we stayed up all night talking & brainstorming!
Our all-night discussions got me seriously inspired to get back to my hikes, tricep dips, career goals – and even to rip the wallpaper out of my guest bath and totally redo it! 😉 lol
We also talked fashion ideas (she has serious skills in that department!) and she’s going to come back and help me learn how to pair & accessorize, with all my awesome new (smaller!) dresses & heels. Yay!! I struggle with that SO much. 😛 🙄
There was a Real Good Pizza coupon in this month’s Keto Krate box. Netrition just got those in, so they sent me some to review for you. They should be here any day now. I can’t wait to try them! Have you tried them yet??
I’m off to put together a grilled chicken caesar salad out of my leftovers… and enjoy a quiet night at home with Slim, my great dane.
And of course get in a set of Tricep Dips before the night runs out! 🙂
How are things going with you?
