In my last food diary titled Patience: Trusting The Weight Loss Process I shared all of my low carb meals for Monday, plus my MyFitnessPal food diary.
In this post you’ll find all of my low carb meals and snacks for Tuesday and Wednesday, along with my MyFitnessPal logs for both days, to give you some ideas & examples…
I haven’t been out yet this week so it’s all simple meals at home and a couple of low carb take-out meals.
My Low Carb Meals on Tuesday
I got up on Tuesday morning and made Low Carb Blueberry Muffins using this recipe, and also cooked up two servings of sausage links – one serving for breakfast and the other to save for later (along with the muffins).
I put the muffins away, and had exactly one egg left – so I decided to try frying it in cheese. I just melted butter in a non stick skillet over medium heat, cracked the egg into the butter, and topped it with half a serving (14 grams) of shredded cheddar.
Then I flipped the egg and topped the other side with the other half of the shredded cheddar (14 more grams) and cooked it on both sides.
That made for a quick & easy breakfast with the sausage links!
The “cheese fried egg” turned out DELICIOUS. 🙂
For lunch I had chicken & broccoli…
This was actually my Applebee’s take-out from the night before, because I only ate the salad that night:
Aaron came over and we got low carb delivery and watched a movie.
We both called in our favorites: cajun chicken for him and a half pound hamburger steak for me – with roasted veggies & side salads.
I ate the entire hamburger steak plus the side salad (just romaine & mozzarella – no croutons) and dipped both in ranch.
(I saved the veggies to have for lunch the next day.)

My Low Carb Meals on Wednesday
I got up on Wednesday and finally had two of my beautiful Blueberry Cinnamon Bun Muffins (recipe) warmed up and topped with butter. 🙂
I had another one for a snack later in the day, topped with a TBSP of the Blueberry Cinnamon Bun Almond Butter they were made with. 🙂 YUM!
For lunch I finished the other serving of sausage links with the roasted vegetables left over from my dinner the night before.
That made for a quick & easy “heat & eat” in the middle of a busy work day!
I also had a large Keto Coffee Shake in the afternoon. It’s the Ketologie Chocolate Shake Mix with 24 ounces of hot coffee and 2 TBSP of butter.
Since the shake mix has coconut oil & collagen, it’s the perfect rich & creamy “BPC” style coffee to glide you through the afternoon hours!
Sadly, that was the LAST serving in my huge jug of mix. It lasted me A LOT longer than I expected it would! But it’s definitely time to reorder. 😉
For dinner I just had cheesy eggs: 4 eggs scrambled in a TBSP of real butter with 2 ounces of colby jack cheese…

I mentioned in my last post that I’ve been in optimal ketosis and that I’m ready to do my next clean testing experiment – and that I was going out tonight for drinks & dancing, and planned to see how alcohol would affect my ketone levels.
Unfortunately I made a HUGE mistake yesterday, and it had NOTHING to do with food. 🙄
So that’s going to screw up my testing for the week, and specifically with any alcohol I drink tonight (which is never much, I’m a lightweight lol)… but it’ll prove to be an interesting test of it’s own.
I hate to leave you with a cliffhanger, lol… but I’m off to work – and I have to make a phone call and get some facts figured out before I can share all the details with you.
So stay tuned for that!!
How are things going with you this week?
