In my final publish: Living Low Carb: Keeping It Keto On The Go I discussed I used to be heading out for an additional fast street journey…
But the primary factor I need to share with you in the present day is about making sensible low carb restaurant decisions and the right way to log these (appropriately) in MyFitnessPal.
It’s splendid if you realize the place you’ll be going out to eat, as a result of you possibly can lookup the menu & nutrition details on-line beforehand and determine what you’re going to have.
I discover this exceptionally useful as a result of it retains me from searching the menu and getting tempted by excessive carb meals. 😛
But whenever you’re unsure the place you’re going, or you end up someplace and also you’re not sure what to decide on, you possibly can all the time lookup the nutrition information in your telephone.
That’s best, since you by no means know the true carb rely of restaurant meals with out wanting them up. Some steaks for instance are means greater carb than you’d guess (um: ZERO, it’s steak!), as a result of they’re marinated in one thing filled with sugar. 😯
Photo Tour: My Low Carb Road Trip
I had a fast and lightweight breakfast earlier than I headed out. I received a few of the Omega Buns to assessment, so I toasted a type of and unfold Blueberry Cinnamon Bun Almond Butter on it. I really like that stuff! 😍
The Omega Buns are fairly good, IF you want flax based mostly meals. I personally don’t. Flax has a singular texture or really feel that I don’t actually like.
But they’re higher than most flax merchandise, and even higher toasted. And in fact they’re a fantastic low carb bread various in case you’re dairy free or nut free. 😉
I introduced a couple of issues with me on the journey too, simply in case… as a result of I knew lunch was actually going to be nearer to dinnertime, and I figured I’d make a cease within the metropolis on the best way again too.
There are four flavors of Super Coffee and I feel they’re switching across the elements, so keep tuned for all the small print. 😉
Anyway, I used to be headed to go to my son and take him out to dinner for his birthday. He’s my firstborn and simply turned 27, so it was a big day for me too: my Anniversary of turning into a mom. ❤
I’m nonetheless a measurement eight. It’s SO good to have the ability to put on fitted clothes and truly button a sweater! I used to put on unfastened becoming garments, and use sweaters to cowl up my fats rolls. 😉
I wasn’t positive the place he’d need to go eat, however I knew he’d need a massive steak. 🙂
We ended up going to O’Charley’s so I appeared up their nutrition facts on my cellular.
Any restaurant or quick food chain publishes their nutrition information & macros on-line now, making it tremendous straightforward to examine issues out on the go!
I acquired the 8oz prime rib with grilled asparagus and steamed broccoli:
O’Charley’s has prime rib all day daily now, not simply on weekends!
It occurred to be “Free Pie Wednesday” btw, and I admit… I used to be tempted. 😛
Since we have been going to get two free slices of pie anyway, I steered he get them each to go – and luxuriate in them together with his girlfriend later. And I had an FBOMB Salted Chocolate Macadamia nut butter packet. 🙂
I feel that’s lacking from my food diary under. Oops!
On my method again to the town I attempted the Super Coffee. It was fairly good, and undoubtedly a pick-me-up!
It was particularly good to have a keto espresso able to drink, vs having to cease and particular order one or attempt to repair one on the street. 😉
You’ll discover HWC (heavy whipping cream) in my food diary too. That’s as a result of I ended at a Starbucks within the metropolis to perform a little work later that night time, and had HWC in my espresso there.

Logging Foods in MyFitnessPal
Whether you sort in a food or scan a barcode together with your cellular, you MUST double examine that entry towards your label or the nutrition information sheet from a restaurant.
Most meals are entered by different individuals, and I discover nearly all of them are incorrect. Just ensure you double examine it!
If a food doesn’t have a label, like recent produce for instance, you’ll be able to google it – like this: strawberries nutrition information.
Here’s the O’Charley’s Nutrition Facts for instance. I discovered that simply by Googling precisely that: ocharleys nutrition details. 😉
I obtained my October Keto Krate earlier this week, and I can’t wait to get into it and see what we acquired this month! Stay tuned, I’ll share what’s contained in the field – plus another low carb meals I’ve been testing/making an attempt.
Speaking of, I made a tremendous Keto Waffle Grilled Cheese this week. 🙂
I used the Know Foods Waffles (use coupon code LYNN for 15% off!) and stuffed them with cheese and pepperoni, then grilled it in butter. 🙂❤
That was scrumptious!!
I’ve been residence the remainder of the week catching up on work and dealing by way of deadlines, however the climate took a COLD flip and I’m already actually lacking summer time – and summer time waterfall hikes. *sigh*
I’m considering a visit to the seashore will probably be so as quickly. 😉
