I’m about to head off on two trips back to back. My first destination is Toronto, which will be a LONG road trip from Tennessee! From there I’ll be driving back to Columbus Ohio to fly off to Vegas. 😀 Fun!
If you want to follow along with my travel adventures – and mostly my fun food finds along the way – connect with me on Instagram or Facebook (or both). I’ll share everything I’m eating along the way. 😉
I’m back on a “losing streak” (YAY!) and wanted to share my recent low carb meals with you, along with the macros, before I head out. I should be packing actually, but this seemed like much more fun. Procrastination at it’s best, no doubt -lol.
This morning I had to run out for a few errands, so I picked up breakfast. This is take-out from a little local place, locally owned and in business something like 50 years. I worked there as a teen so I’m familiar with their foods (real food). They are best known for fried chicken, but the tenderloin & hamburger steaks are delicious.
I got pork tenderloin & 2 fried eggs (take-out):
I ate the eggs and one piece of tenderloin for breakfast, and had the other piece of tenderloin for a quick lunch while I was working. It’s 5pm now and YES I’m hungry (lol)… so I’m anxious for a full dinner. 😉
The plan for dinner is a Pigs In The Garden Salad, by the way. (Take-out again, lol)
*Tenderloin is ZERO carbs, two eggs counts as 1 carb.
Yesterday I had leftovers for breakfast.
It was leftover ribeye steak, mushrooms & zucchini – and I just browned all together in a skillet (because I don’t like mushy zucchinis, lol):
For lunch (and again for dinner) I had Polska Kielbasa (smoked sausages) fried crisp:
(This is “low carb junk food” in my book – but it was delicious!)
Speaking of junk food… I had a Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding cup with 2 Tablespoons of Peter Pan Natural Creamy Peanut Butter to snack on before I went to bed. Not my norm, but I was a tad hungry and just grabbed whatever I could find.
Here’s the whole day at a glance, with macros:
Er, I gotta lay off that coffee creamer. 😐
That was Monday ^ . On Sunday I had the Ruby Tuesday Mistake (lol) for lunch.
For breakfast that day I had bacon & eggs:
For dinner I had leftover steak, bacon & grilled mushrooms. Again, throwing whatever I could find in the fridge on a plate and calling it “dinner”. 😛 Here’s how it worked out:
I don’t normally go over my 20 net carbs limit, especially not twice in a span of a few days, but obviously that day it was the mistake on the Nutrition Facts on their menu – which I’m happy to report… they are now correcting. Yay!
Anyway, I’m 3.2 pounds lighter than I was on Friday… so that’s a plus!
Yeah, it’s a lot of take-out and leftovers and weird foods – but that’s because I’m about to leave on my trip and didn’t want to get groceries before I left. So basically just eating up what’s already here. Which isn’t too far off my norm anyway, ha!
I really look forward to heading off on my trips, and finding some fun meals on the road and in new places. I love traveling because there are so many fun new low carb foods to explore & enjoy along the way! Stay tuned on Instagram and/or Facebook if you want to follow along and see what I’m eating. 😉
