I hear lots of people say weekends are the toughest time for staying on monitor, or sticking to your low carb eating regimen.
That’s not the case for me, whether or not I’m going out or staying in, as a result of my ketogenic low carb eating regimen has simply turn into “who I am” – or a part of my on a regular basis way of life.
I feel it additionally helps to focus on the FUN as an alternative of the food, which is one thing we mentioned on this week’s low carb class (these recordings can be found to replay anytime now, btw!).
I made a fast journey to Atlanta for “girls night out” with a few pals final weekend for instance, so I’ll offer you a photograph tour of my low carb street journey to offer you some concepts…
It was an attractive weekend for a street journey between Tennessee and Georgia!
Low Carb Road Trips & Keto Weekends
Before I left for Atlanta on Saturday, I ate tremendous low carb. I have a tendency to try this on days once I know I’ll be consuming out someplace or if I plan on having a couple of drinks that night time.
There is all the time the potential for hidden carbs in restaurant meals, and even low carb beer or alcoholic drinks can actually add up on you too! 😉
I additionally pack my very own low carb snacks and meals for street journeys, simply in case I want a fast meal or one thing to energy by way of a state of affairs the place I can’t get a low carb meal.
I’ll present you what I ate, and my MyFitnessPal food logs for each Saturday and Sunday whereas touring…
My Low Carb Meals on Saturday
I had a busy morning and began the day without work with a Zero Carb Keto Shake. The chocolate is zero internet carbs, the vanilla is just one internet carb, in order that was a simple meal alternative that holds me over – with none carbs!
You can get the keto shake combine in particular person packets for on-the-go or in bigger tubs (a greater deal), and you will get the tumbler there too which is tremendous handy! See: Ketologie Keto Shakes Our coupon code is LowCarbTraveler for a reduction.
Before I headed out I made an enormous plate of tacky eggs…
It’s 5 eggs, actual cheese cubed off the block, scrambled in actual butter. Easy, scrumptious, filling and tremendous low carb!
I met up with my pals at R. Thomas Deluxe Grill in Atlanta the place we had a FABULOUS dinner! I really like that they’ve all-day breakfast choices on the menu. 🙂
I obtained the Peachtree Morning breakfast platter with three fried eggs, bacon, steamed broccoli – and recent strawberries instead of toast. 😍
My good friend Alice (on my proper under) had an enormous bunless burger with avocado and bacon and steamed broccoli. My pal Monique (left) had some sort of paleo bowl – she eats low carb, however principally paleo/gluten free.
We all loved the dinner! Delicious, and actually enjoyable little place. 🙂
We had a glass of wine and a toast earlier than we went out.
Actually that they had champagne – however Alice was good sufficient to have my favourite low carb wine on hand: Beringer White Zinfandel.
It’s eight.four carbs per 5oz glass, and I solely MEANT to have one glass… however when she poured me one other one, nicely – so there have been two. 🙂 🙂 haha
After dinner and wine we went out to a favourite little spot and danced ALL NIGHT LONG!
Unfortunately they didn’t have my low carb beer there (I like Michelob Ultra once I’m out dancing), so I had rum & eating regimen coke as an alternative.
That’s all the time my go-to in a pinch because it’s zero carbs – so long as you avoid flavored rums, that are filled with sugar. 😉
We closed the place down dancing and laughing, which was a good time! Then headed to waffle home for a fast chew to eat earlier than we referred to as it an evening.
To be trustworthy, the rum hit me exhausting. I don’t drink typically, lol. So I used to be SERIOUSLY TEMPTED to order one thing I shouldn’t.
I turned to Alice and stated, “Order for me too, please” and went to scrub my palms. I got here again to this lovely and easy plate of three fried eggs and bacon!
THAT is a superb pal certainly, lol. 😉
This is Monique and Alice, the woman buddies I used to be out with for the weekend. Amazingly sensible and delightful ladies and FUN pals!
How on the earth did they handle to look so beautiful at 4am in Waffle House lighting?! I’m nonetheless making an attempt to determine that one out, lol. 😛
Breakfast, a great sleep, and a critical hangover later…
The solely factor I actually needed once I received up Sunday morning was espresso and WATER, numerous water! 🙂
Around mid morning we pulled out a couple of issues to make a healthy however mild snack to take pleasure in, principally simply grazing and chatting…
I discussed I introduced loads of low carb meals with me “just in case” and Alice had some recent blackberries, raspberries & blueberries in her fridge – and ooh, provolone cheese!
I additionally had some FBOMB Nut Butter Packets, so I taught Alice find out how to heat these up slightly with physique warmth in order that they knead up good and clean.
Although I feel she was skeptical about “stuffing her bra” with snacks. 🙂 haha
The Macadamia Pecan & Sea Salt was AMAZING over recent berries! ❤️
Those are from Love You Foods and a 20% off low cost is coded into that link for you!
That’s what I had too, and we cut up a Stoka Bar which is each gluten free and keto pleasant, and simply four internet carbs for an entire bar.
Alice tried the Peanut Butter Know Cookies too however she most popular the Stoka Bar. 🙂
The new Stoka Bars are crunchy, like a Nature’s Valley Granola Bar – love!!
It might not seem like a lot on my plate above, however keep in mind: I had bacon & eggs earlier than I slept that morning – and this plate was 420 energy, as a result of I completed the Macadamia Pecan nut butter packet too.
I felt fairly glad and loved the gorgeous sunny Fall afternoon in Atlanta with Alice earlier than heading again to Tennessee.
On my approach out of the town I ended at Starbucks and received a 31oz (Trenta) iced espresso for the street journey residence.
It has about half a cup of heavy whipping cream in it (no classic syrup!) and four pumps of sugar free vanilla + four pumps of sugar free cinnamon dolce. Delicious combo, and refreshing for a sunny street journey!
I used to be fairly near residence once I felt a bit of hungry, so I had one other Fat Bomb packet whereas I loved the scenic route again residence – across the again aspect of Chattanooga and over the mountain.
I used to be too drained for an enormous dinner once I acquired house Sunday night, and truthfully I felt glad sufficient… and received some relaxation. 🙂
Here’s how I logged my meals & wine over the weekend:
It’s so good whenever you’re pals are “keto considerate” and even higher once they eat low carb as nicely, as a result of you possibly can share your treats with them. 🙂
Regardless although, trip having fun with nice pals and good dialog is SO good. It’s necessary to focus on the individuals, the enjoyable, the belongings you speak about, the locations you go – the experiences – moderately than being targeted on the food throughout your social outings.
I obtained A LOT of excellent Fitbit Steps between Saturday night time and the early hours of Sunday morning dancing too, which was nice exercise!
