Keto Food Diary: Simple Low Carb Daily Meals


 

Keto SnacksIt’s been awhile since I’ve shared a daily food diary of my keto meals with you because I’ve been doing a lot of testing lately.

I mentioned in my last post after testing the Know Foods chocolate chips that I was going to do more ketone/glucose testing.

I did, and it knocked me out of ketosis, so I’ve been eating super simple this week and feeling like crap. 😛

The Know Chocolate Chips are zero net carbs and those are FINE, but I need to do more testing this week on a few other products & ingredients before I share the results with you… so stay tuned, because it’s getting VERY interesting!

Yesterday I didn’t have much of an appetite, which is normal for me when I have keto flu. I made my usual cheesy eggs for breakfast…

I made 5 eggs because I knew had a full workday and wouldn’t have time to cook or go out for lunch, so I had about 3 eggs for breakfast and the rest for lunch.

For dinner, I had a bowl of keto cereal. 🙂 ❤

Keto Cereal - LCHF Breakfast Ideas

Yum! It’s Lolli’s Low Carb Granola – the Cinnamon Pecan Crunch flavor – with 18 grams of raspberries and unsweetened almond milk.

I love that stuff! It makes GREAT cereal, it’s good with low carb yogurt, or I like it in a dessert bowl with cream cheese and nut butter and blueberries too. 🙂

It tests great too – doesn’t spike my blood sugar or affect my ketone levels.

Cereal is such a nice treat!!

And I love that Lolli’s granola doesn’t get soggy in milk. 😉

 

MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Tuesday

MyFitnessPal Keto Food Diary with Net Carbs and LCHF Macros

1396 Calories
11 Net Carbs
Protein: 59 grams
80% Fat, 17% Protein

How To Get Net Carbs In MyFitnessPal (Free)

You’ll notice that Protein is only 17% of my total daily calories, yet I had 59 grams of protein. The recommended daily amount of protein for women is 46 grams a day.

So while I’m eating “high fat” I’m also getting *plenty* of protein.

This is why you can’t go by grams, but rather have to go by ratios or percentages. See this link for a detailed explanation & illustration of proper macro ratios:

That’s less than I normally eat, both in portions and in calories, but like I said… I didn’t feel that great yesterday, and I also didn’t have much of an appetite.

I tend to eat when I’m hungry, and don’t eat when I’m not. 😉

 

I’m going to make it a point to start sharing my daily food diaries with you again, because I know a lot of you find these helpful – and also because it holds me accountable to NOT get in a food rut and eat the same things over and over. 😛

Lately I’ve been in ketone testing mode so much that I’ve had to keep my meals super simple, and even duplicate my meals several days to monitor the results without adding in too many other factors.

I’m THRILLED the chocolate chips passed the test and anxious to continue my testing and share what I’m learning with you! Stay tuned, I should have those results in a few more days.

And in the meantime I’ll keep sharing my daily food diaries with you here. 😉

How are things going with you?

  1. Ooooo yes! Just ordered the Peanut Butter and the Cinnamon Pecan. I was waiting for another sale to come around. I snoozed last time.

    I just ordered more granola! Yay!

  3. Margaret Curran says:

    HI! The link is only giving me the 15% discount ($15 down to $12.75).
    Do we have to use a discount code to get the additional 10% off?

    • Caryn says:

      I was thinking the same thing at first. But when you get to the payments page, the additional 10% appears in the total section.

  4. Margaret Curran says:

    Hi Caryn,
    I tried a link further down in this post, and this time the discount is there. Thanks for the feedback. 🙂
