I’ve had a GREAT week and am even back to doing my daily Tricep Dips, which makes me super happy!
Which is all because I could NOT open my jar of Pili Nut Butter last week, which did NOT make me happy. 😛 lol
I have some cool news for you, plus I scored you a discount on the NEW Peanut Butter Keto Kookies (code: LOWCARBTRAVELER) but first here’s a quick photo tour of my low carb meals this week.
You can also see what I ate last weekend here if you missed my last food diary…
I actually cooked a little this week. 🙂
My Low Carb Meals This Week
I only made half a batch of the spinach biscuits and I added a little shredded cheddar because I was short on parmesan.
I was also out of parchment paper which is what I normally use, but I had some non-stick foil – both are great for quick cleanup and no sticking.;)
Those made for a delicious sandwich. 🙂
I used Oscar Mayer Deli-Style Rotisserie Chicken slices and Duke’s mayo:
I had some great take-out this week too…
Including the Roast Chicken Bites Salad from Bojangles’.
It’s 14 net carbs for the entire salad, and 2 net carbs for their ranch packet.
Another great low carb take-out meal was this Grilled Chicken Taco Salad – minus the taco 🙂 – from a Mexican Restaurant.
I ordered it with avocado slices instead of guacamole, mostly out of personal preference but also because I have no idea what they put in their guac.
Several people asked me how I track restaurant meals. If it’s not something on the menu, where I can look up the nutrition facts online to log it, I just log the individual foods in my meal – based on how much I eat, like this:
I couldn’t finish the whole taco salad so I had the rest of it – mostly chicken, avocado & cheese – the next day as leftovers:
I tried the new Peanut Butter Keto Kookies this week. 🙂
This flavor JUST came out this month…
Aaron and I had them plain one morning with coffee, and we both LOVED them. They are the closest thing to a traditional peanut butter cookie I’ve ever had – very soft and buttery and crumbly. 🙂
I scored us a coupon code too! Go to Keto Kookies and use code LOWCARBTRAVELER for our special discount.
They were even better “dressed up” as a delicious dessert!
I topped the Peanut Butter Keto Kookies with cream cheese, peanut butter and then drizzled them with ChocZero sugar free chocolate:
Amazing flavor combination!! ♥
That dessert above made for a great breakfast one morning. 🙂
Other low carb breakfasts I’ve had this week include my usuals – like cheesy eggs. This is 4 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese:
And my favorite “low carb cereal” breakfast: 1/2 cup of pecan pieces, 1/4 cup 4% Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries:
This was a very easy low carb dinner…
I had some steamed spinach left over from making the spinach biscuits, and some Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Fajita Strips. I tossed both in a skillet with some butter and fried those together – then drizzled Alfredo Sauce over it:
I used Pictsweet frozen sliced yellow squash and lined it on a baking sheet with olive oil and salt and cooked those in the oven to go with the chicken & spinach:
I made a delicious dessert using ChocZero Dipping Cups.
I love those things!!
I added half a TBSP of Pili Nut Butter to each White Chocolate Dipping Cup, plus half a serving of macadamia nuts. Then I topped each one (I made two) with another TBSP of Pili Nut Butter (half a TBSP on each):
You can get the Pili Nut Butter here. I like Almond Butter better or natural peanut butter better, but the Pili Nuts are amazing. My favorite low carb nut!!
The ChocZero dipping cups make the best “keto candy” ever!
Some people call these Fat Bombs, but I love that you can use the cups as candy molds to make individual candies instead of making up a whole batch of something. Which is great for portion control. 😉
You can see my Dipping Cup Ideas here.
I used the Dark Chocolate ChocZero Dipping Cup on the Keto Kookie dessert above too. ChocZero makes chocolate syrup, and I have some to try, but I love how the dipping cup chocolate sets up kind of like Magic Shell. 🙂
Aaron loved that ^ and also the “Turkey Sandwiches.” 🙂
That was my favorite meal of the week too, so I’ll probably make more of the Spinach Biscuits this week. They’re great straight out of the oven too, or topped with a fried egg – so they work well for dinner OR breakfast.
I just got another box full of low carb foods to try, so I’ll give you all the details on that in one of my next posts – plus how you can get a FREE purple hand mixer.
Stay tuned for that! 🙂
I’ve also been enjoying Chocolate Keto Coffee Shakes (VIDEO) a lot this week, and just supported their Kickstarter Campaign to bring individually sized packets to the market. I’m reviewing their entire 21-Day Kickstart Program too, so I’ll give you all the nitty gritty details on that soon as well.
Those two links ^ go to Facebook posts, but they are on my public page so you don’t need to be ON facebook or be logged in to watch the video or see the posts.;)
