Ooh, taco salad sounds good. May have to get that on my menu in the next couple weeks.

Meal 1: 1 piece LC Cheesy Skillet Bread; 3 sausage links; tea with half and half and Stevia
Meal 2: chicken salad made with mayo, green onion, celery, apple, cranberries and walnuts on top of lettuce with olive oil/OJ dressing
Snack: piece of almond cake (somewhat LC) with reddi whip, frozen yogurt Sunshine bar
Meal 3: grilled hamburger patty with cheese and special sauce (LC ketchup, red onion, no sugar pickle relish, mayo); potatoes/carrots with olive oil and butter; cantaloupe and grapes mixed with plain Greek yogurt, stevia and vanilla.
Snack: LC chocolate mousse

Now that I've written it all out, could have done better today.

Still a fair amount of fat from the brats to deal with. At least it solidifies when cool and is easily strained from the water (which does not evaporate significantly). The peanut oil I fry in does not, so I generally wait until it's reasonably cool (won't melt the plastic liner) and drain it directly into the garbage can.

It only takes about 1/4 of a cup of liquid. The "cover" means to put a lid on it!

Maw, the actual frying is iffy because I'm uncertain as to when the food is actually done enough but not overcooked. Then there is the oil disposal. It's primarily a lack of experience thing.

Maybe I'll try your method next time. That's pretty much how I cook my bratwurst, except that I use an actual lid for the cooking to trap heat better. Still have to deal with the fat afterwards tho'.

What do you mean by you're not comfortable frying things, Naypooie? Because of the fat? Afraid you'll burn the house down? Too much grease splattering?

I don't fry pork chops anyway. I put just a bit of grease or oil in the skillet, then brown the pork chops over high heat. Turn the heat down, add some liquid (use a splatter guard if you have one!), cover and cook for half an hour or so. Depends on how thick your pork chops are.

I think I got this way of cooking from one of Mark Bittman's cookbooks.

It was a struggle to get off my butt and cook the pork chops and not just zap a can of chili. Especially since I'm still not really comfortable with frying things.

BUT I DID IT!

Not happy with myself right now, first time in 3 months though.

Breakfast and lunch: my normal go-to's, with 2 veggies and a fruit and other relatively low carb things.

Dinner: I had put Kielbasa and cabbage and carrots in the crockpot and it all burned! My husband said it 'exploded', heh. So we ended up going to Jack in the Box for salads, the closest there, and then I got not a salad (none of them appealed) but their breakfast platter. The hashbrown went to my husband but I couldn't stay away from the silver dollar 8 pancakes. At least I used sugarfree syrup with them. And I had two sausage patties and the scrambled eggs. It was a moment's not paying attention decision, I should have checked the menu before we left.

Cravings today big time, I haven't had chocolate in awhile and I really wanted some. The banana was a poor substitute but it kept me from the candy at work.

I blame the mushrooms, Maw. Just kidding, I don't like them, that's why I think they must have evil intentions. But you ended up doing just fine despite the munchies!

Meal 1: 1 piece LC Cheesy Skillet Bread; leftover squash with butter, cinnamon, cloves, sprinkle of brown sugar; tea with half and half and Stevia
Snack: teat with half and half and Stevia
Meal 2: grilled burger topped with tomato, mayo and ketchup; romaine with mandarin oranges, almonds and vinaigrette; small portion of mixed veggies; yogurt with raspberries
Meal 3: really more of a snack at my nephew's open house: a few slices of summer sausage, turkey and cheese; little smokies with BBQ sauce, a little fruit - kiwi and pineapple topped with a spoonful of yogurt. I resisted the root beer floats.
Meal 3 part 2: still hungry when I got home: 2 Almost Bourbon chicken thighs from Linda's site; 3 slices of bacon

I have a bad case of the munchies today. Don't know why. Actually, it started last night, coming home from dinner at Kay's. I can't think of anything that would have set it off, but that doesn't make it go away. For the rest of the day, I will post what I'm going to eat BEFORE I eat it.

So far, I've had -
B - herbal tea with cream and splenda
S - Southwestern Squash Casserole

Added -
L - the last of the chicken bone broth, eggs, mushrooms, green onions, tomato
S - the rest of the soup from lunch that didn't fit in the bowl
S - actually from this morning, but I forgot it when I started this post - 3 blueberries

Added -
D - Easy Eggplant Casserole, broccoli, carrots, butter

B - herbal tea with cream and splenda

S - a little bit of cheese as I was grating it for supper and a few small bites of the casserole to see if it needed more seasoning. It did.
D - (at a friend's house) Tequila Chicken, salad (lettuce, mushrooms, cottage cheese, ranch dressing), Southwestern Squash Casserole

All the way home I was thinking about eating the leftover casserole, but I didn't. I put it away and brushed my teeth. That curbed the worst of the cravings or munchies or whatever.

Great job on passing up the doughnuts!
Maw, thanks for the advice, I looked through my recipes until one of them sounded good enough that I just had to have it. It didn't hurt that I was really hungry by then.

Meal 1: 1 piece LC Cheesy Skillet Bread; leftover cauliflower and cheese; tea with half and half and Stevia
Snack: smoked almonds
Meal 2: 1 uncured sausage; the rest of the cauliflower and cheese
Snack?: sample of Skinny Pop cheese and caramel corn at Costco
Meal 3: 2 Almost Bourbon chicken thighs from Linda's site; butter lettuce with goat cheese, mandarin oranges, cranberries, citrus vinaigrette and toasted almonds; squash with butter, cinnamon, cloves and a sprinkle of brown sugar

I feel pretty good about today, considering I had no desire to cook anything and not much in the way of LC easy-to-make food. I ended up making 2 things, the skillet bread will give me quick breakfasts all week which I need because I cannot eat another egg. The chicken thighs I made in the slow cooker and have enough of those for a few meals too. Temptation avoided!

Sounds like you did pretty good to me, Amaranth!

I find that a big mug of tea with cream and splenda usually takes care of the evening munchies for me.

Budgetmaw, that does look pretty good for you with the meals.

I also had life happen, and I did a bit less well.

I ate my normal breakfast and lunch.

Then we had game night so I had a lettuce wrap burger, and an atkins endulge bar, and then I was still hungry and had an Atkins meal bar, and then a whole bunch of carrots with ranch. I think the carrots really brought me far over my 60 grams of carbs. Oh well, carrots happen and at least they were veggeis.

Meals were not as planned. Life happened, as they say. I think I did pretty well, all things considered.

Looks like a pretty high calorie day, but carbs should be under 50.

Ate my normal breakfast and lunch foods, then when I got home low carb crockpot chili with diced tomatoes from a can, red and green bell pepper, onion and pieces of fried ground turkey. It worked out well, so I had my five servings today (2 from dinner). And I had a coconut atkins bar, those things keep me able to do this otherwise I go turn to sugary stuff because I feel I have to give up too much.

I always eat the same for lunch at least in the week, in my lunchbag. So I have for breakfast and lunch:
Coffee with heavy whipping cream, small bag of carrots and stick of colby jack cheese, an open faced sandwich with ham and cheddar on a piece of low carb bread, a 'protein' granola bar (nature valley), Dannon light and fit greek yogurt, sugar snap peas with string cheese, a kiwi and a sugar free jello parfait.

Dinner was pizza on a low carb tortilla with tomato sauce, shredded cheddar, ham and a sprinkling of a few pieces of pineapple. After I had an Atkins endulge chocolate mousse bar.
Later in the evening a small handful of peanuts. that was it for the day.

Forgot to record 1 bite of a white chocolate macadamia cookie in the break room.

A much better day today. But I do have a stomach ache, maybe from the croissant yesterday? No idea.

home made chicken cacciatore for lunch and dinner; cucumber, brie cheese, walnuts throughout the day. I just cook for myself so I usually eat the same thing for 2 or 3 times; the rest goes in the freezer for later use which I do eat over the next month. Soups and casseroles are full of veggies which acct for most of my carbs.

2 whoppers!!!!! Declined ice cream and cake. I choose to have the whopper and then later in the day another one was brought to me. Sort of blew my low carbs today but as of today I have lost 40 pounds since 1/24/17. I think I have gotten my craving for a whopper out of my system; I feel sick now.
