This Weeks Low Carb Eats


I lost 3 lbs this week!
This leaves only 12 lbs to go till pre-baby weight of 150! 




Here are some of the delicious LC things I ate this week.




Lemon Butter Fish Fillets and Green Beans with Almonds

Gorton's brand

I paired (grilled lemon butter fish fillets), with steamed green beans. I mixed in a packet of splenda and some almonds for flavor. Delish!




Cabbage and Smoked Sausage

What you Need
1 head of cabbage
1 package of cooked smoked sausage
Seasoning ( I use Toney Chachere)

This is such an easy meal. Chop up a head of cabbage (big chunks are fine) and pile it all into a frying pan on medium heat along with a half a cup of water. Bring the bottom layer to the top every few minutes until its cooked down quite a bit. It'll shrink up alot! Then you can toss it easily every few minutes. When it's cooked down to a manageable size, add your cut up smoked sausage and lots of seasoning and cook together until the cabbage is tender and the sausage heated through.




Low Carb Chicken Enchiladas

This is seriously the easiest Enchilada recipe ever and it is SO flippin good. My husband asks for it frequently! I kind of made this up myself so it's not an exact science kind of recipe. 

What you need
3-4 Chicken breasts
2 cans enchilada sauce
Sour Cream
Shredded Cheese of your choice ( I use the mexi mix kind)
Low carb tortillas


1. Boil your chicken
2. Drain chicken then shred it and put back into the pot
3. add a half to full can of enchilada sauce, half to full cup of sour cream and a handful or two of shredded cheese to the shredded chicken. Then, heat on medium until it bubbles. Stir very frequently.  This is the "not an exact science part". Basically, you want this chicken mixture to be very creamy but not soupy. So it really depends on how much chicken you have. Add a little of each until you get the consistency of creamy but not soupy!
4. Pour the other can of enchilada sauce onto a large plate and dip both sides of the tortillas into the sauce.
5. Fill each tortilla with chicken mixture (not too full), then roll them up and put into a pan seam side down. Line each filled tortilla up closely together.
6. Cover the top generously with cheese
7. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.



Hamburger Salad

This is basically a  hamburger without the bun, torn up to pieces to make a salad.
Hamburger (well, turkey actually, we don't eat ground beef)
lettuce
bacon
chopped pickle
chopped onion
mayo and mustard

I order burgers at restaurants and do the same thing! I don't miss the bun at all, this version of a hamburger is so good!




Melted Cheese Taco Shell

Man oh man this is my new fave and so super simple. Low carbbing or not, I can't see how anyone wouldn't like this!

Spray PAM onto a microwavable plate and put a handful (or two)
 of shredded cheese (I used a mexi mix) into a circle.


Microwave for 2-3 minutes. It'll be brown and crispy mostly.


Let sit for a minute and then peel off the plate. Fold into a "shell" shape and add your sandwhich or taco fixins! I put deli meat and lettuce in mine and OMG it was so good! I RAN to my husband to try it and he loved it too! This is an even LOWER carb alternative to using LC tortillas! YAY!




Pepperoni Chips
My whole family loves these! Crispy pepperonis.
They are so easy to make and when I eat them, It taste like i'm eating pizza!

Directions




Ahhhh, it was a good SFLC week and I treadmilled almost every day! The days that I skipped, I opted for a Yo Gabba Gabba dance party with my 3 year old. I think I got more of a work out from dancing to be honest!  12 lbs to go!

  4. You inspire me! My daughter has PCOS and has been struggling with weight and eating properly for years. My husband is a type 2 Diabetic. Me? I just need to take off 50 lbs. LOL My daughter and I are working together to shop and cook and change our lifestyle. Thank you for sharing your weight loss journey!

  5. I found your website on Pinterest the other day. So I decided to give it a try. Everything seemed easy to make and easy to follow. The ingredients weren't outrageous and are available almost anywhere. I could actual pronounce their names. I have about 50 lbs to lose and have tried other so called "diets". This is more like a lifestyle. I started it yesterday and so far haven't fallen off the plan, which is good for me. I made the low call creamy chicken and it was fantastic!! I borrowed Dana Carpender's 1001 Low carb recipe book from the library but their are a lot of ingredients that are expensive and difficult to purchase. Your recipes are quick and simple. Thank you for sharing your experience.

  6. You are a true inspiration! I decided to give it a try. I think I can do it. After my Mom's death I gain 40lbs and health wise is not good for me. Thank you for your information and dedication to help others like me. God bless you!

  8. Hi Jessie!! I love your Blog:) Thanks so much for sharing your ideas. I'm just wondering how long you were living the SFLC lifestyle before you started getting results. I seem to be stuck on a plateau and I have toyed with Low carb plans before but haven't really seen huge results right away so inevitably I'd try something different. Not that those "different things" have worked either:(

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! :)
