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.
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?
