Accountability Time: 5-Day Keto Food Diary


 

Keto SnacksI cooked once over the last week, and had a great keto restaurant meal too, but otherwise it’s been super simple meals & keto snacks.

Actually I cooked twice. Both times made enough for three meals. I don’t know whether to call that a curse or a perk of being single. πŸ˜›

Anyway, for accountability purposes, here are my last 5 days of low carb meals. You can always find previous Low Carb Daily Journals too if you want to look back through more…

My Low Carb Meals on Friday

For breakfast I had my usual β€œpecans, cottage cheese & strawberries” bowl but this time I chopped up a Keto Blondie in it TOO which made for a nice change!

I was actually JUST going to eat the Keto Blondie – and figured I better add in some healthy foods with it too, lol. πŸ˜‰

LCHF Breakfast Options

For lunch I made chicken sausage & cauliflower rice, which was a super quick one-skillet meal. It actually made 3 large servings so there was plenty for both lunch and dinner.

This is the chicken sausage I used:

I fried it up in the skillet with a healthy serving of Pili Nuts, which are a very low carb nutrient dense nut with high fat content. And a nice buttery crunch. πŸ™‚

I microwaved the Cauliflower Rice and added that to the skillet and then had a big portion for both lunch and dinner:

Later that night I got hungry again so I had a Keto Brownie topped with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Almond Butter – because that stuff is SO delicious and hard to resist. πŸ˜›

Keto Treats - Low Carb Brownies with Nut Butter

I also had a Tropical Margarita “fat pack” at some point in the day, plus my usual coffees…

My Low Carb Meals on Saturday

I had more McDonald’s coupons for free McMuffins which I’ve been getting off the McCafe coffee lately. I drink a lot of coffee, so I saved up those freebie codes, lol. I cashed in 3 of them for breakfast – and asked for no cheese and no bread.

They forgot the “no cheese, please” on one of them, and their cheese is TWO carbs per slice! 😯 – but I just ate it anyway. πŸ˜›

That actually made two meals for me, then I had another Keto Brownie with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Almond Butter later in the day.

Then for dinner I had the last of the chicken sausage & cauli rice leftovers.

My Low Carb Meals on Sunday

I started the day with 3 eggs scrambled in butter with colby jack cheese:

I had another Keto Brownie with nut butter (yes, AGAIN lol) plus a serving of pecans (30 grams) while I was getting through some tasks for the day.

Then I decided to bake another Egg Loaf that night so I would have something easy for meals the next few days. Mine always comes out shaped funny. πŸ™‚

I had 2 servings of that for dinner – straight out of the oven. After it cooled of course.

Several people have mentioned theirs was more liquidy or something. Mine comes out done through and very firm:

My Low Carb Meals on Monday

I got up and cut my egg loaf into halves and fried it up into Low Carb French Toast Sticks. I just fried it in butter and sprinkled a little Swerve sweetener on it, which was delicious!

I ended up being on the road the rest of the day unexpectedly, for 11 hours actually, so I grabbed a Keto Brownie and just headed out.

Later that night I stopped on the road at an IHOP and had a simple meal of 3 fried eggs topped with cheese and an order of bacon:

I normally get fresh strawberries and avocado slices at IHOP but I was tired and just wanted something simple & fast that night. See:

I did have 6 coffees w/sugar free powdered creamer (1 carb per coffee) that day too.

My Low Carb Meals on Tuesday

Tuesday morning I was back at my desk and had to jump straight into work, so I grabbed a keto bar from my stash. They don’t make these anymore unfortunately, but I still have a few left. πŸ˜‰

Original Keto Brownie Bar

For lunch I fried the rest of my egg loaf into French Toast Sticks and this time drizzled them with the hot butter I fried them in plus sprinkled them with Swerve – which tasted very much like super fancy cinnamon toast. πŸ™‚

That lunch ^ was VERY filling and ended up taking me two meals to finish, so later that night I just had a Keto Blondie and then a serving of pecans to snack on before I called it a night.

My Low Carb Meals on Wednesday

At this point I’m realizing I haven’t had any veggies since my whole bag of cauliflower rice over the weekend, so I added fresh baby spinach to my usal breakfast of cheesy eggs.

Whole Foods Keto Breakfast

I had another one of the original Keto Brownie bars for a snack later, the bars they don’t make anymore.

Then that night I went to Applebee’s for dinner, and decided to order something different than my “usual” so I scanned the menu for ideas.

I was going to get their “garlicky green beans” but I looked them up and they were EIGHT net carbs (11 total) per serving. πŸ˜›

I settled on the grilled chicken with two sides:

Ordering Low Carb at Restaurants

For my first side I ordered a side caesar salad with diced cucumber instead of croutons. That came out as a FULL plate of salad, not a small side-on-a-saucer, lol.

I got full on the salad (I cleaned that plate!) plus a few bites of sauteed mushrooms off my date’s plate (he doesn’t eat mushrooms) and two of the wings he ordered.

So I boxed up my grilled chicken and broccoli and brought it home for lunch the next day. I asked them to “add bacon & cheese on my chicken, please” btw – which was delicious! πŸ™‚

I ended up eating another bar too before I went to bed that night. Apparently the salad filled me up fast, but didn’t stick around for long!

Today I ate those delicious leftovers for lunch. πŸ™‚

    Looks like a great week! Thanks for all the info! I really need to get on making that egg bake! Have a great weekend Lynn!

  2. Pamela D Thompson says:

    Weigh in this week is 146 which is the same as last week. Eight more pounds to go to get to my goal weight. I plan on doing your 3 ingredients for a couple of weeks to see if that makes a difference in my weight loss. Thanks

    • Lynn Terry says:

      It should really help. Pamela. πŸ™‚ Two weeks of 3IMAX has been a great stall breaker for a lot of people! Obviously it cuts out any “products” and eating super simple can definitely speed things up.

      That last 10 pounds is the MOST challenging, so just hang in there! πŸ™‚

  3. Carol Taylor says:

    I can’t begin to eat that many carbs a day and lose…but very satisfied with what I do eat and am still losing. And don’t get hungry. Even with all of my exercise I would never lose. Glad that works for so many. Love your posts and ideas on foods to prepare. Thanks

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Thank you, Carol. πŸ™‚ I had a couple of days over 20 net carbs in there, which is unusual for me – but mostly I’ve stayed at 20 net carbs max consistently for years.

      How much lower do you go?
