Since deciding to try the Low Carb Approach to eating, I did 100% on Friday and Saturday. With it being Mother’s Day on Sunday, I was not 100% but I tried!! All the Mothers were given a Chocolate Truffle Bar at Church and I gave mine away. That I is a score in my favour. Monday was a good day. If I had a problem it was that I didn’t eat enough carbs. I read that it’s a good idea to go with 20 carbs a day for the first couple of weeks and then slowly increase. I went under today which apparently is not a good idea!!!
So here is how Monday went for me:
Breakfast (2.4 carbs)
2 egg omelet with 2oz cheddar grated
Snack (2.3 carbs)
2 Celery Sticks, 1 Tbsp Ranch Dressing
Lunch (3.1 carbs)
Turkey Salad (2 cups shredded Romaine lettuce, 1/2 cup diced cucumber, 3oz diced turkey, 1 Tbsp Grated Romano Cheese, 1 Tbsp Ranch Dressing)
Snack (2.7 carbs)
24 Natural Almonds
Dinner (5.2 Carbs)
Chicken Tournedos with Bacon, 3/4 cup Easy Cauliflower Gratin, 2 cups shredded Romaine lettuce, 2 Tbsp Three Cheese Ranch
Snack (1.4 Carbs)
Sausage, Spinach and Feta Bake
Total: 17.1 Carbs / 1507 Calories

I had a look around the internet today for a little help with low carb cooking. I found a great website/blog called I Breathe … I’m Hungry. Great looking recipes that I think I will be using a lot!!
I decided to make the Easy Cheesy Cauliflower Gratin to go with my dinner. It was good, but the cauliflower seemed to take an awfully long time to cook in the microwave. I think I might just steam it and mash it next time.
While dinner was cooking I made a Sausage, Spinach and Feta breakfast bake so I have something ready to go for the rest of the week. It smelled delicious. When it was cooled a little, I ended out having a piece for an evening snack. Looking forward to breakfast this week!!
