Keto Recipes - Created Date : 8.11.2019
Berries are not technically a fruit, and are a healthy addition to your low carb diet in moderation.
This is what my “cereal” looks like once I mix it all together:
For lunch I fried the other half of the Johnsonville smoked sausage (no fillers) together with the leftover cauliflower – and added fresh mushrooms. Delicious!
I ate a little more than half of that at lunch, and then for dinner I decided to use the leftovers to make my Low Carb Biscuits.
I modified the recipe slightly (less almond meal, mostly). I used: 1/2 cup of Bob’s Red Mil Almond Meal/Flour, a 6oz bag of Kraft Finely Shredded Parmesan Cheese, 3 eggs, and 2 TBSP of real butter (melted). And then added the leftovers of course, which I chopped up a bit.
As you can see, I’m sticking to “real foods” for the week – nuts, berries, veggies, etc. I find that eating real food, and keeping it super simple, is the easiest way for me to lose weight.
I didn’t exercise yesterday because I was tired and had a headache. That’s the keto flu setting in after getting back on track, no doubt. ?? I feel much better today, so I’m going to do my Focus T25 Workout plus 90 reps on my Ab Carver Pro. ??
7 Responses to My Low Carb Biscuits & Food Diary for Wednesday
Thank you for posting all your meals! I’ve recently started eating low carb and struggle daily with ideas for food. Your determination and posts motivate me to be a better, healthier me! I was diagnosed type 2 diabetic about 5 years ago but never changed much diet wise or exercise. After being pregnant and on insulin and then having some complications with delivering I felt horrible. Topping it off my son wasn’t able to produce enough insulin on his own and his sugars tanked minutes after he was born, we almost lost him when he turned grey and wasn’t breathing. The most horrible day of my life. All of these problems because of me not taking my diagnosis seriously and watching my weight and blood sugars. So thank you for letting me follow along on your journey.

The Best Healthy Fast Food Options
Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.
Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.
In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.
Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.
Sandwich with cheese and vegetables
One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.
Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.
Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.
A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.
Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.
According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.
One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.
Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.
Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.
Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.
Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.
For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.
McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.
Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.
5. Burger King
Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.
It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.
BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.
Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate
Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.
Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.
The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.
Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
With a few vegetarian options at Wendy's, Sour Cream and Chive Baked Potatoes
