Loaded Broccoli, Low Carb Restaurant Meals & LCHF Food Examples


Keto SnacksIn my last low carb food diary I shared my recent meals and MyFitnessPal logs for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Below are my meals and MyFitnessPal diaries for the last two days to give you even more low carb ideas & examples.

My girl friend from high school came down on Thursday evening and we’ve had a great visit this week. We stayed in and worked, watched movies, and ate good of course. 🙂

My Low Carb Meals on Thursday

For breakfast I had my favorite “low carb cereal” with 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy brand 4% cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries:

Over lunch I was working so I had a Chocolate Coffee Keto Shake again. 🙂

It’s entirely too cold here to drink an iced shake, so I’ve been making it with hot coffee instead. Delicious!

When Carrie got here we went out for dinner to catch up over a nice meal before settling in to work and hang out for a couple of days.

We went to Applebee’s and I got my favorite meal there: grilled salmon (“no glaze, please”) with steamed broccoli – and this time I asked for “loaded broccoli” meaning: loaded like a baked potato. 🙂

As my other side I asked for a side caesar salad with cucumber instead of croutons. They really hook you up with the side salad.;)

Carrie had an appetizer trio and we ordered an extra Spinach Artichoke Dip, so she just ate the extra chips. Otherwise I just ask for the dip without the chips. 😉

Applebee's Low Carb Appetizers - Spinach Artichoke Dip without the chips

I ordered that because I LOVE the Spinach Artichoke Dip on my grilled salmon. 🙂 Delicious!!

My Low Carb Meals on Friday

Carrie and I slept in and spent the morning working and brainstorming over coffee, then had a late breakfast closer to lunchtime.

We had bacon & eggs, with the eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese. The bacon was cooked in the oven, so it was a quick & easy meal!

Low Carb Breakfast for Two

We had dinner delivered from a local bistro. I ordered the grilled chicken and sauteed veggies. It includes carrots but I just pick those out. 😉

I asked for ranch dressing on the side and dipped my chicken & veggies in the ranch.

We stayed up late last night watching movies so I made some chocolate desserts with ChocZero Dipping Cups. Carrie couldn’t even tell they were sugar free! 🙂

I made dark chocolate peanut butter cups, and white chocolate macadamia nut candy:

I got the January Keto Delivered box this week (see the photo below) and I just got my Keto Krate box today too – and next I should get The Keto Box, so I’ll share what’s in all three boxes as I dig into them. 🙂

There are 7 low carb products in this Keto Delivered box including Good Dee’s Low Carb Cookie Mix, Riced Broccoli and ChocZero Syrup. Fun stuff to try!

I think our cold snap is finally about to break here in Tennessee. I’m glad too because I’m anxious to bundle up in layers and get out for a fun hike. 🙂 I miss my outdoor exercise!

How are things going with you?

    Lynn Happy New Year !!!!! Your food looks delish. I have to say i have fallen off the wagon and my weight weight from 132lb-142lb over a few months. I am at a lost and feeling horrible. 132 wasn’t even my goal weight and now I am 10 away from that number. Jeez. Giving it another go, I wasn’t tracking and I don’t think I was getting in enough fats. I am getting back on track to get these 10lbs off and then work on the next 8lb. Hopefully I can stop this weight roller coaster that I have been on for over 20 years. I just wanna get to a comfortable weight and maintain. I feel like I just don’t know how to once I get down. I seem to get close then shoot back up. I am heading for a. Each vacation in less the 3 weeks and was thinking to try to limit calorie intake and just up my fat to get a few pounds off before then. What are your thoughts. I am miserable and can’t go on this trip 10lbs heavier.

      Hi Becky, Happy New Year! 🙂

      My advice: start tracking on MyFitnessPal, keep it super simple with real food and very few ingredients, and just do 20 net carbs max and 70% fat minimum.

      I actually stay on that. Don’t worry about “how to maintain” until you actually get there, and then stick to what’s working for your body and your health for a bit and get comfortable with that first. 😉

    Happy New Year Lynn.
    I recently got a new computer. I’ve installed Firefox, I’ve added GreaseMonkey and then I clicked on After you install plugin, Install this add on, Nothing really happens. The web takes me to a page of raw data if you will. I did this on my old computer and it worked great. What am I missing this time?
    Thanks for your help.

    Loaded Broccoli…What a GREAT idea! Definitely going to start ordering that for my side dish…Yum!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      It’s my favorite. 🙂 I sometimes have to explain, like this: “I’ll have the steamed broccoli but I would like it loaded – like a loaded baked potato, but the toppings on the broccoli instead.”

  4. Brenda Oden says:

    Lynn- I am frustrated – I stay on my macros and my weight loss is so slow it is crazy.
    yesterday 18 carbs 72% fat – 22% protein
    Sunday 17 carbs 77% fat – 17% protein
    Saturday 19 carbs 74% fat – 22% protein
    etc – pretty much stays like this.

    Can you shed some light. I weigh 174, 5’6″ tall and 57 years old.


    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Brenda,

      You are losing weight right? What do you consider “slow” exactly? When did you start, how long have you been consistently doing those macros, and how much weight have you lost?

      You are at least 2 inches taller than me, so I’m not sure what your goal weight is. I do know the last 20’ish pounds is the slowest and MOST challenging. 😉

      • Brenda Oden says:

        Hi Lynn,
        I have been eating this way for over a year now and lost 24.4 pounds. In the last 32 days I have lost 4.4 pounds and if it is just going to be slow that is fine. I really am pretty consistent with my macros. I love this way of eating because I know I am putting real whole foods in my body. I am at that last 15 to 20 pounds. I just did not know if I should tweak what I eat or just stay the course.
        Thanks for sharing your journey with all of us.

        • Lynn Terry says:

          Hi Brenda 🙂

          Yes, at that close to goal weight, a pound a week is GOOD weight loss. That’s what I was averaging for my last 20 pounds lost.

          I’m lucky to lose a pound or two a month at this point, but I am so close to goal (139-140 lbs) – so I am focused more on losing body fat AND gaining muscle weight at the same time.
