Wednesday’s Low Carb Food Journal


I had a fabulous day today. πŸ™‚ I got up early and knocked out some work (I work from home), then headed out to run a few errands before meeting my friend Sue in the city for lunch.

After a beautiful lunch, I had an even more beautiful nap (lol).

Then I had a bit of dinner, hung out with a friend, and caught up with my son – and even snuck in a little more work during the evening hours.

All in all a GREAT day. Minus a workout – oops! I need to make up for that tomorrow. I did manage to get in around 3500 steps today according to My Faithful Fitbit, but it’s a far cry from my 10k goal. πŸ˜›

You may have already seen my meals throughout the day on Facebook or Instagram, but here’s a breakdown of everything I had & how my macros came out for the day.

Breakfast: Coffee & Cheese

I was busy this morning so I just snacked on some Colby Jack cheese off the block along with my coffee while I wrapped up some work and got ready to head out. I’m not a big breakfast eater. I usually don’t eat a “meal” (a light meal) until around mid-morning.

Lunch: Low Carb Meal at Logan’s Roadhouse

I met my friend Sue at 11:45 in the city. She picked the restaurant this time, which was Logan’s Roadhouse. I love eating there because they have a new Healthy & Hearty menu. They don’t publish their nutrition facts though, so you have to be smart about what you order and stick to “safe foods”.

Lunch with Sue Painter

That’s me on the right. πŸ™‚ And here’s my lunch:

Low Carb at Logan's Roadhouse

I had the (plain) Grilled Salmon, Steamed Broccoli & Sauteed Mushrooms with a side Caesar salad (no croutons). I wasn’t able to finish it all, especially with the salad added on, so I brought the rest home to enjoy later…

Dinner: Leftovers + PB&J Cottage Cheese

Low Carb Leftovers

I finished the leftovers from Logan’s around “dinnertime” (above), then later in the evening when I got hungry – with hardly ANY groceries left in the house (lol), I whipped up something… sorta odd.

I took 1/2 cup Daisy Brand cottage cheese (4 carbs) and added 1 TBSP sugar free raspberry preserves (1 carb) plus 2 TBSP peanut butter (4 Net Carbs). A bit high carb, and WEIRD, but it’s what I had on hand. πŸ˜›

Cottage Cheese Peanut Butter and Jelly (Low Carb)

I mixed it all together, not knowing WHAT to expect – but it was actually very good. It was creamy and delicious! πŸ™‚ A “bowl of PB&J” lol. Who knew?!

Low Carb Food Experiment

Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary w/Macros:

MyFitnessPal Net Carb Food Diary

I had 5 cups of coffee & 40 ounces of water today.

Next up: some serious grocery shopping! I’m going to be “in” again for the next week working on some projects before my next trip, and I’m craving a little food variety. πŸ˜›

So far on my list is cucumbers, squash, broccoli slaw (great for stir fry!), chicken thighs, beef roast, avocado, ground chuck… hmm – still working on that list. πŸ™‚

What about you? What’s going on in your kitchen, or what fun new low carb recipes have you tried lately? I’d love to hear how your health goals are going!

    I have been on almost every diet imaginable. I’m one of those people who wants to lose weight without changing much of anything. I have been on the low carb diet (using mostly your recipes ish) for a little over a week. It has been slow but I’m losing and I feel like I’m not being deprived of much. I’m a retiree and don’t have much activity going on. I appreciate you posting your meals, etc. I tend to eat the same things for several days in a row so this works out well for me.

      Thank you Linda, I’m really glad you’re finding it helpful. πŸ™‚ I think we’d ALL love to lose weight without changing anything -lol. I know I would!

      That said, going low carb had SO many more benefits than I ever expected… It’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. πŸ™‚
