Day 10 of ultra-low carb and a little treat (with picture)


Sunday, November 03, 2013

Today was a great day, even though the weather was bad which usually affects me a little. Exercise was almost non-existent, just a mini-walk for each of the dogs, less than 30 minutes total.
My husband was so kind to do the morning chores today so I got to think about my plans for the next few weeks, talk to family and have a leisurely breakfast and lunch.

9 am breakfast: 1 cup decaf with 1/4 cup cream, 3/4 cup full-fat yogurt, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 oz. nuts

2pm lunch: 1/2 squash filled with ground beef and topped with melted cheese

5:30pm special treat in honor of being on this plan for 10 days:
almond pancakes with dark chocolate sauce and another cup of decaf with lots of cream



The recipe is very simple. Mix almond or other nut flour (ground nuts) with 2 large eggs and enough cream to make a thick batter. Drop the batter in a frying pan with melted butter. Turn when brown on one side. Makes 6 small pancakes.
For the chocolate topping mix 1 oz.(30grams) of 85% dark chocolate in a small bowl and warm until the chocolate melts with 1 teaspoon Xylitol. This is the amount I used for 3 pancakes. Sorry, you'll have to figure out the carb count yourself.

I am full enough to where I won't need anything for dinner.
I've been wondering how many calories I consume on an average day. I know it does not matter on low-carb but sometimes I'm curious, I'm just too lazy to bother. The first couple of days on low-carb I usually eat more, then my appetite settles down and I may be eating less.

    Lindiemae,
thanks for asking. I do take some vitamins and minerals, mostly the ones I can't get enough from any diet, namely Vitamin D and magnesium, occasionally some Iodine. I used to think that it takes a lot of veggies to get enough vitamins but when your animal products come from pasture-fed sources as mine mostly do then veggies become a lot less important. Still, usually I try to get more green veggies in than I have the last few days. There are phytonutrients that I should probably not miss out on.

    Pancakes look fabulous - are you taking any vitamins to make up for any nutrition that you might not be getting? Unless you track its hard to know. Just curious eh emoticon
