It’s getting to be the season of eating coming up, although truthfully I’ve already started with the candy corn! 😀
Lisa posted the other day about eating low carb and how it was a little difficult for her. I commented about trying to do low carb for a few days a week rather than every day and got me thinking that I should start doing that now with the eating season and all. So, here is example of Monday’s lower carb day.
Now – keep in mind that it’s lower carb, not really low carb. I don’t do well with really low carbs (that’s just me) and I’m not interested in giving up my fruit. I also don’t subtract fiber from my carb count like a real low carb person. Basically my lower carb is just eating less grain items.
Anyhoo – on to the eats. Breakfast was a 1-minute muffin done in a waffle iron topped with blueberries:
Coffee with heavy cream, which is pretty rich. This breakfast was pretty filling.
Lunch time was a quick 2 egg + egg white cheese omelet:
I love omelets – love them! I eat them several times a week.
I got little hungry later and this would be a time where I would grab a bit of cereal as a snack to tide me over. Instead, I had a spoonful of this stuff:
It’s solid at this time of year, so it was just a chunk of it. I forgot how much I like this. Yum! I could easily go overboard eating it, so I have to be careful as it is high calorie.
Latte snack later. This is where more of my carbs come in with the milk.
Dinner was a classic for me. Chicken with pan sauteed broccoli:
This looks small, but it was 6-7 ounces of chicken (with Frank’s Red Hot on it).
Evening snack with football:
I ended the day with about 75 grams of carbs, mostly from fruit and dairy. I think if I subtracted the fiber from my day it was around 50? Again, I don’t do it that way.
It’s a good way to switch things up and knowing I’m only doing a few days a week of it makes it easy to stick to because I know the next day I can have, say, a bagel if I want 😀
Today’s pink picture is Ms. Pixie’s harness and leash:
She loves her harness and she will go over to the door and put her front feet up on the door patiently waiting so I can buckle the harness on her. She is pretty smart when it comes to that. Not so smart with other things, but I still love her 😀
