I’m still sticking to easy low carb foods, and keeping it really simple. Mainly because it’s summer (too hot to cook much), and because I’ve been super busy lately – so I’m just going with things I can grab on the go, or that take very little thought or preparation.
Yesterday I had a couple of turkey & cheese roll-ups for breakfast, with a handful of almonds.
For lunch I had a big bowl of tuna salad with string cheese. Then for dinner I made a hamburger steak, and had the leftover tuna salad on the side.
Like I said, super easy…
The only thing I actually had to cook the entire day was the hamburger steak! I love how easy it is to eat low carb, and how you can eat plenty of foods that require little to no preparation at all. It’s really great for someone like me that doesn’t care to spend all day in the kitchen. 🙂
Earlier that morning I had a Vanilla Atkins Shake with a string cheese, and a coffee. That’s actually the first time I’ve bought or tried the Atkins Shakes, and honestly I only got them to use as coffee creamer because my store was out of everything else I would normally use.
(I know, go figure!)
I bought Vanilla and Milk Chocolate Delight, and you know… they actually made great low carb “flavored coffee creamers”! LOL.
Fortunately I talked my teen daughter into making a trip to the grocery store, so I now have cream and other low carb foods in the house – like hamburger, bacon, eggs, broccoli, etc.
I actually liked them both! The Milk Chocolate Delight and the Vanilla.
Of course, years ago I drank the SlimFast shakes and liked those too. The Atkins Shakes are really sweet, so they hit the spot when you have a sweet tooth or you’re craving something chocolate. Which is great, because too much of the sugar free chocolate candy I like so much REALLY hurts my stomach. 😛 Not the case with the Atkins Shakes, which is cool!
Anyway, that’s my Low Carb Journal for yesterday (Monday). I actually made it through an entire day with no take-out! haha. What about you – are you doing a lot of cooking lately, or keeping it simple? I would love to hear what you’re eating! 😉
