Simple Keto Meals & Low Carb Fast Food Ideas
Below is what I ate yesterday, including my MyFitnessPal diary so you can see how I logged those meals.
You can see yesterday’s low carb food diary here too if you missed it.
Today’s photo tour of meals includes a super simple one-skillet breakfast and keto fast food turned into a NICE dinner…
Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals
For breakfast I fried two Spinach Feta Chicken Sausage links then fried two eggs in the same skillet – and put that over a bed of fresh baby spinach. I drizzled the hot butter from the skillet over the spinach, then sprinkled it with fresh parmesan too.
Simple & delicious!
You can get this delicious chicken sausage in different flavors at both Publix and Aldi stores.
For lunch I had a Macadamia Pecan fat bomb from FBOMB – great little portable nut butter packets.
This was super convenient at my desk on a busy workday. And yes I wore my sweater leggings to work! But I work from home, lol.
This link will give you 20% off the FBOMB products. They gave us a very generous discount!
I had to run out last night, so I picked up dinner from Wendy’s while I was on that side of town. I ordered “a baconator with no bun and no ketchup, in a tray please, and a side salad instead of fries.”
I actually forgot to say “no ketchup please” this time, so I had to scrape that off. Oops!
I brought that home and chopped it all up together into a Bacon Cheeseburger Salad.
It didn’t even need any dressing with all the mayo!
I also had 4 coffees yesterday, with sugar free Coffee-Mate hazelnut powdered creamer.
Here’s how I logged those meals…
MyFitnessPal Keto Food Diary for Wednesday
12 Net Carbs
Protein: 99 grams
72% Fat, 25% Protein
You’ll notice that Protein is only 25% of my total daily calories, yet I had 99 grams of protein. The recommended daily amount of protein for women is 46 grams a day.
So while I’m eating “high fat” I’m also getting *plenty* of protein. This is why you can’t go by grams, but rather have to go by ratios or percentages.
I keep it really simple: 20 net carbs max & 70% fat minimum.
See this link for a detailed explanation & illustration of proper macro ratios:
I hope this proves helpful and gives you some ideas and inspiration for mixing things up a bit. I’ve been really “food bored” lately myself, so I’m trying to make it a point to change up what I’m eating on a daily basis.
I’m SO glad it’s March, by the way…
I cannot wait for Spring to get here!!
I’m ready to get outdoors and get some exercise in the woods again.
I did go for a nice hike last week when we had decent weather, so I’ll have to share those photos and videos with you – and the story. There’s always a story!
How are things going with you?
