Happy Monday! If you’re participating in the Summer Low Carb Challenge it’s time for the Week 6 Weigh-In in our private Facebook group, or leave a comment here on this post with your total pounds lost since June 25th.

Keto SnacksI’m back to my home workouts, which feels SO good!

It can be really hard to MAKE that a daily habit, but I’m pushing myself on it. πŸ˜‰

In my last Food Diary I was eating leftovers from a delicious Applebee’s low carb meal the night before…

You can browse through past keto food diaries here.

Here’s what I’ve been eating since then, for the last four days. I should say upfront, it was a busy/lazy few days of just grabbing whatever was on hand or convenient. But sometimes that’s just life! Like this morning – I’m eating a simple snack plate of nuts & cheese while I work.:)

My Low Carb Meals on Thursday

I had Blueberry and Banana Nut Low Carb Nush Cakes at my desk, which are the BEST replacement for blueberry & banana nut muffins. πŸ™‚

They’re organic, fruity, delicious & made from healthy ingredients!

For lunch I had my leftovers from Applebee’s the night before: grilled chicken topped with cheese & bacon with steamed broccoli.

I actually had the Blueberry Nush Cake for breakfast, the leftovers as a late lunch, then the Banana Nut cake that evening.

It may not seem like a lot of food, but my lunch was VERY filling – oh, and there were also some leftover wings I ate. I forgot about those! πŸ™‚

My Low Carb Meals on Friday

My breakfast choice on Friday morning was TERRIBLE lol…

I honestly just grabbed a few things I had on hand and threw them all together, because I was out of groceries. πŸ˜›

Keto Treat - LCHF Foods

It was edible, just WAY too sweet for my taste. πŸ˜‰

I had Snickerdoodle NUI Cookies (which are already pretty sweet) with Legendary Foods Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Almond Butter, a very little bit of cream cheese I had left (less than half an ounce), some raw pecan halves – and I drizzled ChocZero chocolate syrup over it. Just a TBSP, but still!

Keto Foods - Creative LCHF Combinations

Normally I would use plain natural peanut butter or almond butter and more cream cheese to make my “cookie stacks” less sweet. πŸ˜‰ And also use berries instead of chocolate. Oops!

If you love sweets, you might have really liked that bowl of treats lol. I had to drink A LOT of water with it!

I took my lunch break on the river to float in the sunshine for awhile, and took a large Vanilla Ketologie Shake in a Tervis Tumbler with me to enjoy.

Chocolate Keto Shake

I mixed it with coffee, but their shakes are just as good with water!

By dinner I was famished and definitely ready for some REAL FOOD so I called in take-out from a favorite little local place.

I got a half pound hamburger steak (“add cheese, please!”) with roasted vegetables and a side caesar with no croutons – just romaine & mozzarella.

Plus ranch for dipping. πŸ™‚

I ate ALL of that dinner too. That hit the spot!!

Keto Sides - Low Carb Take Out

My Low Carb Meals on Saturday

I had a keto bar for breakfast that’s 4 net carbs with no sugar alcohols. I had to grab something quick while I was heading out the door for an appointment.

I had more of the McDonald’s coupons for free McMuffins (those came off the McCafe coffee bags) so I got 3 of those while I was out running errands later.

I just ordered them with no cheese and ditched the bread, to make it easy. πŸ˜‰ Their cheese is 2 carbs per slice, btw.

Keto Breakfast Stack - Sausage and Eggs Low Carb from McDonald's

That actually took me two meals to finish, or maybe a meal and a snack.

Then for dinner I was craving a hamburger, so I went to Hardee’s and got the Frisco Burger (with an extra slice of cheese) on a lettuce wrap. They’ll make anything on the menu low carb for you at Hardee’s or Carl’s Jr:

Hardee's Low Carb Keto Burger

My Low Carb Meals on Sunday

I had big breakfast yesterday of four eggs scrambled in butter with colby jack cheese. I use a full tbsp of butter to scramble them in, and about half ounce of cheese per egg, so it’s very filling – and delicious! πŸ™‚

Lynn's Cheesy Eggs

I was in a “get things done” kinda mood in the afternoon and didn’t want to take time out to cook or go get something, so I whipped up a quick “Keto Cookie Sandwich” with FatSnax chocolate chip cookies and almond butter. πŸ™‚

Keto Cookie Sandwich - Easy LCHF Low Carb Snacks

THAT was delicious!

I don’t remember the FatSnax cookies being THAT good the last time I tried them! They’re WAY less sweet than other keto cookies I’ve had, more like slightly sweetened shortbread – which I love.

The FatSnax cookies come in chocolate chip, peanut butter and the brand new “Lemony Lemon”. They have a FatSnax Variety Pack on Amazon, but the new Lemon FatSnax Cookies are SO good! They’re 34.99 for a box of 24 cookies (12 two-packs) with free shipping, and they’re on Amazon Prime.

They’re cheaper at just 29.99/box on FatSnax.com plus $2.99 flat rate shipping, and you can get 5% off when you join their email list.

FatSnax Chocolate Chip Keto Cookies

The chocolate chip ^ are what I had yesterday, but the new lemon are GREAT – and I don’t even like lemon! πŸ˜› I got to try them at the KetoCon event in June… and I had a hard time staying out of the samples. πŸ˜‰

That nut butter cookie sandwich was so good… I just had another one for dinner. I was actually tempted to make another one for breakfast this morning, lol.

 

I’m back to doing my daily body weight / strength training, and I *did* figure out the proper names for the hip lifts (Glute Bridges) and the butt kicks (Donkey Kicks) lol – I need to update that in my MyFitnessPal account.

Logging Workouts in MyFitnessPal

 

Twice this week I took my float down to the river to enjoy the sunshine and the afternoon. That was the best cheap entertainment from Amazon, lol.

It inflates/deflates quickly, folds up compact and fits in my daypack, and is perfect for a quick trip to the river – or for hiking to a swimming hole! πŸ™‚

Floating the River

 

It’s been awhile since we talked about Know Foods, but they sent me some of their new products to try.

The thing that interests me most is their new Garlic & Herbs Keto Thins. I love their low carb crackers! That’s probably my FAVORITE Know Foods product, the Thins.

Keto Crackers, Very Low Carb and Crisp!

I think I’ll have those for lunch today with Tuna Salad so I can try the new flavor and compare the two. If you’ve tried them already, I would love to hear your thoughts…

How are things going with you?

Leave a comment and let’s chat!

    Lynn, I had a recipe for a low carb bread that was just cheese baked in the oven but I’ve misplaced it. Can you share it with me again?

    Thanks,

    Brenda

  2. Amy says:

    Is there an easy way to find out net carb on food. I am just starting a Keto diet

  3. Michele M. says:

    I’m so glad Know has changed the packaging! I stopped buying them in the bags as by the time I got them they were so broken up I had to use them for everything but crackers. LOL it’ll be interesting to see what you think of the new flavor.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Me too Michele – I love the new boxes. πŸ™‚ I still haven’t tried them yet, but I will probably have them with tuna salad today or tomorrow, so stay tuned! They really are the best low carb crackers I’ve ever had. MUCH better than flax crackers. πŸ˜›
