Easy Examples for Simple Low Carbing

I’ll share my MyFitnessPal log and a photo tour of my meals with you for some real life examples of staying on track and coming up with super easy (but delicious!) keto friendly food combinations to keep things interesting. 😉

Including the “peppermint vanilla keto shake” I had this morning!

I was traveling this weekend and stayed over in Atlanta at the Hotel Indigo, so for dinner on Saturday night I ordered room service.

I simply asked for the cheeseburger with no bun, and “could you add a fried egg and bacon on that too, please?” I got the lettuce, tomato & mayo on the side and ate it with a fork.

I got a side salad with avocado ranch dressing instead of fries with that big beautiful burger. 🙂

What a gorgeous salad, too!

I especially love staying on track when I’m traveling or on the go – because that’s when I *most* want to feel lean, happy, confident & full of energy! 💃

Nothing like feeling bloated & lethargic & blah when you’re traveling, or worse: on a vacation you should be enjoying! 👍🌞❣

Staying low carb is easy! You have to eat anyway… so it’s just a matter of WHAT you eat. 😉😘

My Low Carb Meals on Sunday

I stopped at Starbucks on the road for a coffee & water first. It definitely would have been cheaper to stop at McDonald’s for both, and with their mobile app deals you could probably get a coffee free when you buy a bottled water…

But I had money left on my Starbucks gift card. 😉😁

I only like the Blonde roast at Starbucks, for hot coffee. And I usually travel with Coffee-Mate Sugar Free Hazelnut Powdered Creamer.

The hazelnut is their lowest carb and BEST flavor, and it’s creamier (and less carbs) than the liquid creamer. Only 1 net carb per tbsp.

It takes way less of the powdered creamer to make a sweet creamy coffee, saving you carbs AND money. 👍😎 Plus no refrigeration required, so it’s portable and handy for a low carb road trip – or anywhere. 💕

I only like the hazelnut, even though I wasn’t a hazelnut lover before. It’s the lowest in carbs. I’ve been through all their other sugar free flavors and ended up throwing them out. The hazelnut is delicious though – the best!

I also had some snacks with me so I decided not to stop at McDonald’s for my usual sausage and eggs OR for my favorite meal at IHOP, and just had a Salted Chocolate Macadamia Fat Bomb and kept driving.

Those Stoka Bars are amazing too! Check out the reviews 😉

Once I got home on Sunday I finally sat down and had a solid meal: chicken, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach & soft buttery pili nuts topped with cheddar and a dollup of Daisy Brand sour cream.

It’s the Atkins Crustless Chicken Pot Pie with Pili Hunters nuts. Delicious combo, and so quick & easy! 😊

I got hungry again but didn’t feel like “making dinner” so I just threw together a combination of foods I had around the house.

It’s two Peanut Butter NUI Keto Kookies, 18 grams of frozen blueberries, 2 ounces of Philadelphia cream cheese – all topped with Macadamia Coconut FBOMB nut butter. YUM!

LCHF Fat Bomb - Simple Keto Dessert

That was more like dessert than dinner – but it was all healthy, keto friendly foods. So why not?! 🙂

I actually had a hard time finishing that, especially when I added a second packet of nut butter to it -lol.

 

Here’s how I logged those meals…

(lunch and dinner are swapped in my food diary – because I screwed that up and didn’t bother changing it, lol)

My breakfast this morning was my favorite Vanilla Keto Shake – but mixed with hot coffee instead, and Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Coffee at that!

Talk about a delicious flavor blast for breakfast.

I’m still working on that recipe for you, but I should have it posted here for you in the next few days. I finally got the ingredients worked out. You’re going to love it…

Update: here’s the recipe!

I’ll be home all week which is nice, so I’m planning to cook up a big batch of veggies tonight which should last me several meals. I’ll show that to you in my next food diary…

How are things going with you?

    Lynn,
    I am on my 11th day of this challenge, and loving it! I am tracking everything daily and staying faithfully within my 20 net carbs (maybe one day went 21) and a minimum of 70% fat. It can be 9:00 at night and Im going over my tracking for the day and will be shy of the 70% fat and think “Ill bump that up with some pecans”, yep that does it! Ha
    I had a great first week losing 6.2 pounds and then a couple of days .2 or staying the same, but this morning I weighed in with a 1.1 gain:( Is this normal? Will I go up and down, even thought staying within goal ranges? Im not giving up, I was like ” ok, I see you, but not giving up” Just wondering

      Hi Janet,

      I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying the challenge and loving the results – and that you’re sticking to it and tracking closely! 🙂

      It is VERY normal to see a “hold” or even fluctuations on the scale during week 2 and/or week 3. This is simply your body adjusting to the initial weight loss, and 6+ pounds is FAST weight loss to your body – so it’s a very normal adjustment period. We all go through it. 😉

      Your weight loss won’t be down down down consistently but it will be a consistent downward trend over time. More like down, hold, fluctuate, hold, down, down, repeat lol.

      It’s maddening if you only go by the scales and you’re weighing daily. You only want to weigh first thing in the morning right after you pee, by the way. Any other time of day is not accurate as our weight fluctuates as much as 5 pounds or more throughout any given day due to water weight and hormones and all kinds of other things.

      Anyway, a lot of people throw in the towel during that first adjustment period. The key is to stick it out – and keep doing what’s obviously working so well! 🙂
