Weekly Eats

So i'm a bit late posting what I ate last week but i've decided to simplify it a bit. I won't be posting each days meals. I'll post the more unique low carb eats, some recipes, and photos.


TUNA MELT


Simple, LC tortilla, tuna, and I think I used a few velveeta slices.



FAJITAS (which I eat about once a week!


Wen't to Chili's with the hubby. This is what I ordered. You can never go wrong with fajitas!-No tortillas of course-I do usually bring my own though but this time I forgot.


BACON MUSHROOM CEASAR SALAD (One of my faves!)


I looove this. I love raw mushrooms so this is perfect for me. Just a handful of raw mushrooms, ceasar dressing, and real bacon bits. Seriously, it is sooo good!



CAJUN CABBAGE



I'm a cabbage fan so I always try to incorporate it into my weekly diet. I made cajun cabbage this week. Chop up a whole head of cabbage. Fill a wok or frying pan with about an inch of standing water along with lots of butter. Put your cabbage in the pan. There will be a huge pile but it will cook down quickly. I added Tony Chachere's cajun spice to it, but just salt and pepper is really good too. Turn the pile every couple minutes till all the cabbage is tender...takes about 15 minutes or so. All done!



CHORRIZO BURRITO-Breakfast




CHIPOLTLE CHICKEN-seriously amazing! And no it's not burnt, thats the seasoning! lol


So my new favorite food product is this new chipoltle cheddar cheese that just came out. It is so good! I love chicken and I frequently stuff chicken breasts with all sorts of ingredients. It's so much more flavorful that way. So I cut a pocket into the chicken and put one slice of cheese in each chicken. Then, I coated my chicken with heavy cream (only because I had no eggs but this works perfectly fine-and also makes for more moist chicken) and then dipped it in dry marinade- Chipoltle Pepper from Grill Mates to be exact. You'll need a few packets to cover 3 or 4 large chicken breasts. I do this quite frequently. Since I can't do breading, I use dry seasoning packets to coat meats like you would breading. It works wonderfully! Bake as usual. When the chicken is done so much of the cheese will have spilled out if you don't put a a few toothpicks to close up the pocket. Thats ok though, just stuff all of it back in-no harm no foul. It is so delish!

Try this dry marinade strategy with lots of flavors and meats. Here's what I've got in my pantry right now.


I'm excited about the mojito lime! I want to marinade some shrimp and chicken in lime juice first then put the coating on there. Yuuummmmers!



I was craving an ice-cream type of thing and didn't have the ingredients for my mock-ice cream so I had to come up with something...and I was quite satisfied with my-

SUGAR FREE/LOW CARB CHOCOLATE VANILLA ICEE


So simple- I just took a handful of ice, a little bit of heavy cream and vanilla soy milk, and Da Vinci's sugar free chocolate syrup. Blenderized it and done! I can't tell you exact measurements bc I just based it on how thick I wanted it, plus it was very experimental, but man it was good!

  1. Sounds and looks like a lot of yumminess. Seriously. I like the chicken pocket stuffing idea. I also plan to try that cabbage. I am a huge cabbage fan. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you, however it still always surprises me how many mean and rotten comments I receive, so please remember that I post what I eat merely as a suggestion of ideas for others. Low carbing is not cut and dry. What works for me may or may not work for you. Also, I live exclusively low carb, but I don't live my life counting them so I don't often include the net carb counts on recipes. Happy low carbing ya'll! :)
