So I have decided to go a little bit more low carb lately. I went really low carb when training for my triathlons and I will be following a similar diet. I am going to be eating very similar to how I was eating before but a little less fruits, a little less peanut butter. 🙁 It is still going to include lots of lean proteins, and veggies and a little more fats. This has always worked for me in the past to shed some pounds and I want to be lighter for my half-marathon. When I get to my longer runs I will add more veggie carbs. So on to the eats:
Breakfast: I made two eggs over easy and three strips of bacon.
Snack: I had a 1/4 cup of toasted almonds and about 6-7 slices of sharp cheddar cheese.
Lunch: One Boca Veggie burger with Cheese, Salad with iceberg lettuce, 1/2 cucumber, 1/4 cup of red onion, 1/4 of a tomato – diced and one pickle.
Snack: I had about a 1/2 of a cucumber and 2 Tbsp of my Bacon and Caramelied Onion Dip. So yummy. Onions are little higher in carbs so only have a little of the dip. Measure it out!! Click here for the recipe!
Dinner: This was a really odd combination but it was really yummy! It was about 2 cups of Iceburg lettuce, 1/2 cucumber, Slice of Tomato diced, 2 polish dill spears sliced, 1 BBQ chicken premade on my grill this weekend, and topped with some Mango Peach Salsa that I got at Target. So yummy. I think this Salsa is going to make an appearance in a lof of my recipes and only 2 Net Carbs. Win!!
Remember everyone is different and all diets are different, find what works for you. This one is easier for me to follow. I count carbs versus calories. I still eat a ton of veggies and feel full. Find what speaks to you!
