Keto Meals Week 3

This is probably the last post I will do mapping out all the food I eat on Keto. I might do a post on just our dinners in the future.

Day Thirteen

Breakfast – Two fried eggs, red organic kale sautéed in butter. Seasoned with salt and pepper. Coffee with stevia, MCT oil, heavy cream. Unsweetened iced tea.

Lunch – Leftover steak, asparagus sautéed in butter, mozzarella cheese, some avocado, a hard boiled egg.

Snack – 25g of blueberries, 1 ounce of smoked cheddar cheese, 10g macadamia nuts, some hot tea with stevia.

Dinner – Pork tenderloin, garlic parmesan green beans, smoked cheddar cheese.

Dessert– 72% piece of chocolate with half a serving of this peanut butter:

It’s hard to find a peanut butter that is keto-friendly. They all have sugar in it that I’ve found. 🙁 That’s why I only had half a serving of this. I just needed a little something sweet and the unsweetened almond butter not going to do the trick.

Fat 69%, Protein 22%, 9% carbs, 25 net carbs.

 

Day Fourteen 

Breakfast – Omelette with bacon, cheese and spinach. Coffee with stevia, heavy cream and MCT oil. Unsweetened iced tea.

Snacks – Salami and olives, cheese.

Lunch – Leftover steak, cauliflower rice with hot sauce, 1/2 an avocado.

Dinner – Burger with smoked gouda and mayo and buffalo sauce, green beans sautéed in butter on a green salad with light Italian dressing.

Dessert– 1 piece of 72% dark chocolate (for Valentine’s day!).

Fat 74%, Protein 20%, Carbs 6%. 17 net carbs. 

 

Day Fifteen

So I started getting a head cold this week and ended up staying home sick today with a full-on head cold. 🙁 really hoping it doesn’t turn into a sinus infection. Usually when I’m sick I want comfort food–oatmeal, orange juice, EmergenC, chicken noodle soup…but I am trying to stay on the plan….

Breakfast – Red organic kale sautéed in butter, two fried eggs. Coffee with MCT oil, stevia and heavy cream. Unsweetened iced tea.

Snack – Tea with stevia.

Lunch – I made some “chicken noodle soup” minus the noodles and it turned out really good! If you want the recipe, I saved it in my Instagram Highlights. I also had a piece of smoked gouda and a hard boiled egg.

Dinner – Michael got me beef pho minus the noodles! Pho is my favorite when I’m sick. I had to kinda guess on my stats for the day. I did add some bean sprouts to the pho.

61% fat, 24% protein, 15% carbs. 23 net carbs.

 

Day Sixteen 

Breakfast – Two fried eggs, 1.5 pieces of bacon. Coffee with MCT oil, stevia and heavy cream. Unsweetened iced tea.

Lunch – My leftover chicken “noodle” (no noodles) soup from the day before. A piece of smoked Gouda cheese and some salami.

Dinner – Chicken breast with mozzarella, Rao’s marinara sauce and pizza seasoning. Green salad with grape tomatoes and light Italian dressing.

Dessert – 86% dark chocolate and a spoonful of peanut butter.

65% fat, 26% protein, 8% carbs. 22 net carbs.

 

Day Seventeen 

Breakfast – 1.5 scrambled eggs with cheese and hot sauce on a low carb wrap with some sour cream. Coffee with MCT oil, stevia and heavy cream. Unsweetened iced tea.

Lunch – Green salad with arugula and spinach, hard boiled egg, grape tomatoes, avocado, smoked cheddar, light Italian dressing.

Dinner – I met a friend for dinner at Wayfinder beer. I picked that place because they had vegetarian/vegan options for my friend and options that were diet compliant for me. She had beer and I had one glass of pinot gris wine.

I ordered of their side order menu instead the main menu. I got their housemade bratwurst, the Brussels sprouts and their “cauliflower gratin” (basically cauliflower drowning in cheese). It was all very good! I had to guess about the nutrients. But I think I was probably somewhere between 25-30 net carbs for the day.

 

Day Eighteen 

Breakfast – I had an omelette made of cheese, breakfast sausage and green onion topped with hot sauce. Coffee with MCT oil, stevia and heavy cream. Unsweetened iced tea.

Snack – Hot tea. 1 piece of 72% dark chocolate with 1/2 serving of peanut butter.

Lunch – Michael and I went out to lunch for a belated Valentine’s Date (I was sick for the holiday). We went to SeaSweets Poke. You could build your own poke bowl, which was nice, so I could skip the rice! I got the kale salad instead. I got the spicy tuna poke, cabbage, seaweed, nori, and spicy mayo. There were some carbs in my lunch but it was generally good carbs.

Dinner – Zoodles with meatballs and pesto and a side salad.

Unfortunately, today was the highest in net carbs I’ve been since starting the diet. Since we went out to lunch I had to estimate a lot of stuff but still. It was a disappointment to be at like 37 net carbs for the day even though I ate pretty healthy. Oh well, it was one day.

 

Day Nineteen

Breakfast – Scrambled eggs with sausage and cheese. Coffee with stevia and heavy cream. Unsweetened iced tea.

Snack – Olives with Babybel cheese, hardboiled egg. Some parmesan Whisps and some roasted and salted sunflower seeds. I was very snacky today!

Lunch – Leftover chicken breast with Rao’s marinara and mozzarella. Salad with light Italian dressing.

Dinner – Salmon with salad and steamed broccoli with Goddess Dressing.

Dessert – 72% chocolate and 1/2 serving with peanut butter.

60% fat, 28% protein, 12% carbs, around 30 net carbs.
