Low Carb Living

Thought I'd just share some pictures of meals I've made since I've been missing.....

This is my almost daily breakfast - eggs scrambled in grass fed butter with cheese and bulletproof coffee (my version is my Dunkin Donuts coffee blended with a splash of heavy whipping cream, 1-2 tsp of grass fed butter and sweetener).  If you are wondering about the coffee, I think this is an informative blog post about the benefits.  For me, it is really tasty this way and filling.

On fairly rare occasion I do deviate from my usual breakfast of eggs. I made these really tasty Breakfast Sausage Pinwheels from the blog Up Late Anyway.

These were two attempts at grain free pizza. We mostly liked the one on the left better because it handled more like a regular thin crust pizza.  It is from the Fathead movie blog and can be found here.  The one on the right actually had more flavor and was cheesier but the crust was too mushy for our taste, it was not like a regular pizza.  It can be found here.

Garlic butter shrimp (just followed the recipe on the container of garlic seasoning) with a creamy cheesy cauli-rice.  This was my third and best cauli-rice attempt and I totally winged it.  I added Parmesan cheese and heavy whipping cream and it came out almost risotto-ish.

Peanut Butter Chia Energy Bars from the blog All Day I Dream About Food. These were one of the best "snacks" I've made since changing my way of eating but they were a little too good.  I could not control myself at all so I had to put them in the freezer and once they were in there they taste horrible.  Something happens with erythritol when it freezes that causes the cooling effect to exponentially increase.

  1. This is awesome! I need to start making some more filling breakfasts in the morning. I just heard about the grass fed cow butter and bulletproof coffee and we got some from a local farm. Yum!

  2. Thanks Holly! I have added some more content to the blog post including links to recipes. I take pictures on my iPad so I start my posts from there but it's easier to insert links from my laptop (go figure!) so I have to update the post from there. LOL!

  3. Just stumbled upon your blog, Like you, I am a low carber and constantly struggle with it. It's been especially difficult as I had the flu that took me down for 3 weeks. I'm back among the living and trying to get back into the swing. One day at a time! Thanks for a great blog!

  4. Thanks Lin! I hope you are back in the swing of it! I recently departed from it while company visited and was quickly reminded how much better I feel when I keep my glucose steady and eat foods that do not leave me bloated.
