Hey there! How are you? We have somewhat catching as much as do… 😉
Since we final talked I’ve hiked Greeter Falls and Boardtree Falls, hiked the Window Cliffs State Natural Area, flew to Austin TX and again, went out dancing, and am presently in a mad sprint to satisfy a tax deadline – lol, eek! 😛
It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a food diary with you. I’ve been tremendous busy since the last challenge ended. Obviously!
We’ll be beginning a new challenge quickly although, so keep tuned for particulars.
Anyway, I assumed I’d begin again by supplying you with a fast photograph tour of my final two weekends of consuming low carb on the go – plus a number of keto meals at residence in between.
I’ll simply begin with my FAVORITE low carb restaurant meal in ages, which was Friday night time at Logan’s Roadhouse. This was FABULOUS!
I ordered the chopped steak topped with grilled onions & sauteed mushrooms, steamed broccoli and grilled asparagus:
Onions can actually add up on you in carbs, and truthfully I don’t just like the precise onions as a lot as just like the FLAVOR of cooked onions – so I solely ate perhaps 1/four of the onions.
Otherwise I cleaned that plate. 🙂
I haven’t had a FUN night time out in ages, so I made a decision to get out and dance for a number of hours after dinner.
I not often drink, however at times (and particularly once I’m dancing!) I really like Michelob Ultra within the bottle – 2.6 carbs every.
I had a tremendous time, and logged some critical Fitbit steps in my four″ heels that night time. 😉
And let me simply say… there’s one thing a few man that may dance!
But the HIGHLIGHT of my night was the asparagus.
Definitely the asparagus. ♥
While I’ve been on the go I’ve been getting my standard sausage & eggs from McDonald’s alongside the best way.
I truly had coupons free of charge Egg McMuffins that got here on my McCafe Coffee that I purchase on the grocery retailer – so I’ve been cashing these in for a “free lunch.” 😉
I really like that they serve All Day Breakfast! You can order the Sausage Egg McMuffin “with no cheese and no bread please” (their cheese is 2 carbs per slice!) or you’ll be able to order: “3 sausage patties and 3 round fried eggs please” (a la carte).
It’s least expensive to obtain the McDonald’s app and do their BOGO offers!
Speaking of nice offers (and the way did I NOT know this prior to now?!) Starbucks does free or tremendous low cost REFILLS! ♥
I simply found that once I stopped at a Starbucks to make amends for some work for awhile, and went to order a second espresso earlier than I left… and the refil was solely 99 cents. 🙂
IMPORTANT: Always be sure to request “no classic syrup please” in your iced Starbucks drinks. They are served “lightly sweetened” by default, with a full 30 grams of sugar in a Venti iced espresso or tea! 😯
The weekend earlier than I used to be in Austin TX for a enterprise assembly, and I used to be there for a few nights… however I solely truly ate ONE meal. Or I solely went out to eat as soon as I ought to say…
I introduced loads of keto pleasant snacks with me, understanding it was going to be a busy journey, together with Ketologie Keto Shakes as a result of YES: the person packets are FINALLY again so you possibly can take them on the go together with you now! 🙂
(our coupon code is oct273 🌻 or if that doesn’t work, attempt: TravelingLC)
It was late once I acquired into Austin the night time earlier than my assembly, and I used to be drained too, so I simply grabbed a bottled water from the merchandising machine within the airport and shook up a fast Keto Shake proper there on the airport.
Quick & Easy! And these Ketologie shakes actually maintain me over. 😉
The subsequent morning I began my time without work with espresso, however I lastly obtained hungry about midway by means of my assembly. Go determine! lol 😛
Luckily I had the moveable FBOMB Nut Butters in my purse, they usually’re sufficiently small to stash virtually anyplace – which I really like. So round 10 or 11am that morning I had a tall glass of water and this handy fats bomb:
This is my present favourite of the four totally different flavors of FBomb nut butter packets of their selection pack:
It was in all probability near 4pm earlier than I had my first “meal” and I walked right down to the Eureka! Restaurant on sixth Avenue based mostly on a number of HIGH suggestions.
I used to be NOT dissatisfied. I had probably the most superb cobb salad. 🙂
It was chock filled with avocado, hen, bacon, egg, recent spring greens, and I obtained feta as an alternative of bleu cheese crumbles (simply choice).
The service was second to none too. 🙂
Austin is such a FUN metropolis!!
I solely ate half of my salad on the restaurant, and took the remaining to go.
After dinner I walked a block or two over and obtained an iced espresso at Starbucks so I might settle in and wrap up some work.
I additionally grabbed some string cheese and bottled water whereas I used to be there, and had the string cheese with the opposite half of my salad later once I received hungry once more. 😉
I made an enormous Ketologie Keto Shake for breakfast the subsequent morning, this time combined with espresso as an alternative of water, and headed again to the airport.
Those shakes and fat bomb packets have been extraordinarily compact, however got here in VERY useful on my journey!
Both are one thing I truly ENJOY (love, undoubtedly LOVE) and they’re each one thing I knew would maintain me over between meals and even AS a meal.
Since I’ve been house I’ve been consuming my ordinary low carb meals, together with my fast & straightforward tacky eggs – and these days with sausage hyperlinks too:
I’ve been tremendous busy with work so I’ve hardly cooked (until you rely consuming uncooked pecans out of the bag or scrambling a number of eggs, lol).
I did get some GREAT low carb take-out meals this week although, together with this scrumptious hamburger steak with roasted broccoli & cauliflower:
And this Philadelphia Chicken (2 breasts smothered in sauteed mushrooms & mozzarella, no onions on mine) with roasted broccoli & cauliflower:
I really like roasted veggies! ♥
Oh, and I lastly tried the brand new Rebel Creamery keto ice cream. BLECH!
I did NOT LIKE any of the 5 flavors they despatched me to evaluation. The precise taste didn’t stand out in any respect, they usually ALL had a horrible aftertaste.
You can read the discussion here.
I’ve additionally been testing the model new recipe for the brand new smaller Know Cookies, and I’m completely satisfied to report: they do NOT knock me out of ketosis AND they’re scrumptious!
I particularly like their latest Peanut Butter Keto Cookie, which I made a meal out of by topping it with creamy peanut butter:
The coupon code COOKIES will get you 15% off proper now, btw. 😉
They have five flavors of keto cookies now, and the lemon 🍋 has been my LEAST favourite. I’m not likely into lemon anyway, to be truthful. But topped with cream cheese… it tastes like PIE. 😍
I’ve been speaking to the brand new CEO of Know Foods and getting the inside track on all of the modifications they’ve made this yr, so keep tuned for extra enjoyable updates on that!
They have plenty of nice low carb merchandise, they usually’re all the time placing out good offers & coupon codes too.
Oh – and these are much less like cookies or snacks, and extra like a keto meal alternative bar – however as a wealthy chewy cookie!
They have higher components than most bars (tremendous clear, actual food),and maintain me over WAY longer, in order that they’re nice for consuming in your approach out the door… or making a fast meal out of on a busy day. 😉
Other than that I’ve been maintaining it easy with straightforward meals at residence, or tremendous easy take out meals like this grilled hen with roasted veggies.
I’m again to my day by day residence exercises, principally power training nonetheless, AND I’m again on the street at this time. 🙂
I look ahead to getting again to my every day food diaries right here, and in addition catching up with you. Are you planning to start out the subsequent Low Carb Challenge this month?
I’ll be saying the beginning date quickly!
