Low Carb Foods I’m Eating…


It’s been a few days since I’ve shared my Low Carb Daily Journals, so I thought we would catch up real quick with a photo tour of my most recent meals.

I did finally make that dreaded trip to the grocery store, by the way. πŸ˜€ LOL

Of course, prior to that I was simply eating a lot of take-out. A lot easier, so much less hassle and mess.

But yeah, cooking is definitely better in many ways so I did finally get some groceries. Anyway, here are two examples of my favorite take-out:

Left is tenderloin with scrambled eggs, and right is of course a grilled chicken salad.

At the grocery store, the produce was really sad. I didn’t end up getting many fresh vegetables this time around, which means (*sigh*) I will have to make another trip out to another store later this week. Anyway, I did get some of my favorite low carb snacks & convenience foods…

I snack on Pecans & String Cheese quite a bit. Especially in the mornings when I’m working and not really in the mood for a heavy breakfast. The Garlic & Herb cheese spread is another favorite and is absolutely delicious! Hard to believe it’s low carb, even. πŸ˜‰ Sometimes I dip pecans or almonds in it, and other times I dip hot grilled chicken strips in it:

I get those pre-cooked too. Another favorite low carb convenience food. You can get steak or chicken in one pound packages labeled as “fajita meat”. They’re great alone, in stir fry or on top of a big leafy salad!

Speaking of convenience foods, another favorite is the Tyson Beef Pot Roast & Gravy. It’s fully cooked and just goes in the microwave for 5 minutes. One box makes about three meals for me. Two if I’m really hungry or just eating it by itself.

You’ll find both the fajita meat and the Tyson products in the meat section at the grocery store. Often tucked in a little section there between pork and beef or something.

For one meal I just had the beef roast with string cheese. I’m all about simple, LOL. I had the rest of it the next morning with a couple of scrambled eggs. Sounds odd, tasted awesome! πŸ™‚

Yesterday I made chicken strips with mushrooms in the skillet, and baked up some cheesy broccoli to go with it. Another quick & easy low carb meal:

And then for dinner I had Classic Bone-In Wings from Applebee’s (6 net carbs) with – of course – string cheese!

Keeping things easy and convenient really helps me stay on track with the low carb diet. I love that there are so many take-out options and convenience foods. Especially when I just don’t have time to be messing around in the kitchen all day, or simply don’t feel like it. πŸ˜›

So that’s what I’ve been eating the last couple of days. What about you? πŸ˜€

    We find that the produce is better looking and better priced buying from local produce stands. We have 3 produce stands between my house and the nearest store. My dad told me that he stopped buying produce from the store a long time ago and uses produce stands primarily.

      We only have one here in my middle of nowhere town, and it’s only open for a few hours on Wednesday or Saturday. Not late at night when I prefer to do my marathon-through-the-store (LOL). So many things I like are just not in season right now too. I will have to go across town to Kroger sometime this week – they usually have MUCH better produce. πŸ˜‰

    Is that low carb gravy on the pot roast?
