Low Carb Food List


When I’m not traveling, I do cook at home. Not a lot, but some – and definitely more than I did prior to eating low carb. 😉

When I shared the grocery cart photo below on Facebook, one of my friends was interested in a low carb food list -or my basic weekly groceries for a low carb diet.

As you’ll see, I’m still very much into “convenience foods”. If I’m cooking at all, its quick & easy!

In this particular cart is Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup, 2 pounds of ground beef chuck, a cucumber, fresh mushrooms, frozen broccoli, pecan halves, a bag of broccoli slaw, and pre-cooked steak & chicken strips (like you would use in fajitas)…

To give you an idea what a typical low carb food list looks like for me, here are some of the staples in my weekly grocery trips. Actually, I rarely shop on a schedule – so I just pop in and grab stuff (then get out of there as quick as possible LOL – I don’t really care for shopping):

  • Coffee
  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Sugar Free Flavored Coffee Syrups
  • Eggs
  • Sausage
  • Bacon
  • Ground Beef
  • Bagged Caesar Salad
  • Bagged Broccoli Slaw
  • Iceberg Lettuce
  • Cucumbers
  • Mushrooms
  • Pre-made Pulled Pork
  • Pre-cooked Fajita meat (chicken & steak)
  • Frozen Broccoli
  • Frozen Cauliflower
  • Frozen Chopped Spinach
  • Mozzarella String Cheese
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Pecans & Almonds
  • Palamer Sugar Free Blackberry & Raspberry Preserves
  • Smuckers Natural Organic Peanut Butter
  • Diet Coke
  • Bottled Water
  • Sugar Free Candy
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Deli meat: turkey, ham, roast beef
  • Caesar Dressing
  • Soy Sauce
  • Mayo, Mustard & Butter
  • Dill Relish
  • Dill Pickles
  • Green Olives
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Canned Green Beans
  • Canned Tuna
  • Smoked Salmon
  • Crab Legs
  • Pork Skins
  • Garlic & Herb Cheese Spread
  • Sugar Free Jello

That’s my basic low carb food list off the top of my head. I’m a creature of habit, so I tend to find things I like and stick to those. The foods above give me quite a few combinations to eat and snack on throughout the week.

I like the traditional sausage & eggs, but I also like to cook sausage like I would ground beef – then add in mushrooms and parmesan cheese for a quick & easy one-skillet meal (right).

I also use the broccoli slaw, add a tablespoon of butter and sliced mushrooms, and make a quick stir fry with it.

Often I’ll add chicken with one or both of those ingredients for another easy dinner. I love the pre-cooked chicken & steak strips, and often flavor the skillet of meat & veggies with soy sauce. In this photo I have steamed broccoli topped with (lots of) parmesan on the side:

As you can see, I eat super easy and keep it convenient. I like tuna salad with string cheese & green olives on the side for an easy lunch. String cheese & pecans for a simple snack. Crab legs, cucumber salad & steamed broccoli for a nice dinner (done in minutes!). Ham, cheese & spinach makes a great omelet. Fried eggs when I just want a quick breakfast.

I don’t really plan my meals. I just eat what I want, when I want…

What’s on YOUR low carb food list??
