6/10/09 Low Carb Menu

Breakfast: Banana, low carb latte

Lunch: Low carb white pizza (low carb tortilla, mozzarella cheese, goat cheese, pesto)
             Red pear

Snack: 2 slices swiss cheese

Dinner:  Salad - chicken breast, romaine, celery, gruyere cheese, caesar dressing

1/2 of a diet coke and jack daniels with lime

The banana at breakfast - I've started exercising again and I know you should eat something higher in carbs after working out. I need to find something that sort of fits the 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein that is recommended. I am trying to stay away from my former post-workout breakfast - toast and peanut butter - because peanut butter can be a trigger food for me.

Low Carb Life

So it's been several months now and I've been doing the low-carb thing. Its working. I feel less sluggish, happier and best of all I've lost over 30 pounds. I've been reading low-carb blogs online and the daily menus really help me figure out what to eat, so I thought I'd start recording my own meals once in a while.  I drink water all day long.


One-egg omelette with swiss cheese

Low carb pizza (low carb wrap, sauce, cheese, turkey pepperoni, pesto)

Chicken breast
Strawberries and whipped cream with Splenda
Diet coke with slice of lime

Notice the lack of veggies today? Just lazy.
