TRY LOW CARB FOR 3 DAYS!


As we are all hopefully approaching the end of quarantine, we may have adapted new eating patterns for the better, or the worst. Recently, in hopes to unwind what our stressed eaten and snack filled pandemic has brought us, Ross and I decided to go low carb. In 2 weeks I was able to shed off 6 of the 10 pounds I had gained since the same time last year. Low carb sounds scarier then it actually is. Since then I have continued this low carb lifestyle during the week while treating myself on the weekends. For me, this balance makes me feel the perfect mix of in-control and satisfied. Remember, we don't want to chase fad diets, we want to find a dietary pattern that works for us long term and is comfortable. Here is an example of 3 days in the life of our low carb world:


DAY 1

BREAKFAST: Grilled vegetable and egg whites or full egg omelet with a 1/4 avocado.

SNACK: Protein shake with 1 scoop Hemp powder, coconut milk, 1 tbsp nut butter and splash of vanilla extract

LUNCH: 1/3 cup Tuna salad on a bed of greens

SNACK: 1/4 cup cashews

DINNER: 4oz ground turkey with sautéed peppers, onions and mushrooms


DAY 2

BREAKFAST: Mix 1 scoop hemp powder or protein powder, 1 egg, vanilla extract, 1 stevia packet or tsp of honey, a splash of non dairy milk and make a pancake or waffle. Top with a drizzle of nut butter

SNACK: 1 cup berries

LUNCH: 1/3 cup chicken salad with raw broccoli on a a coconut wrap

SNACK: 1 tbsp peanut butter and celery

DINNER: 4oz Salmon and side of sautéed garlic, spinach and bok choy


DAY 3

BREAKFAST: 2 chopped hard boiled eggs, 1/4 cubed avocado, 2 slices turkey bacon chopped and mixed together

SNACK: Plain cashewgurt or yogurt
