Low carb week #51

After my little series of daily low carb posts (post #1, post #2, post #3, post #4, post #5, post #6 and post #7) I wanted to do a few more days but got away from it, then decided to do a week report, now one week too late I do the first one, so will be for week 51 of 2014.

Main reason to change it in to a weekly blog post was that I spend too much time every evening (and often too late) and actually, I often had the same to eat every day, so 7 blog posts with 7 times more or less same breakfast, not that cool really.

So I will from now on just show a few meals for a week, so no more daily pictures. Oh, this also makes it easier for me to cheat ;-)

So let’s get started with breakfast on the 15th of December.

15th of December

2014-12-15 08.09.08

Yeah, no surprise. Omelet, cheese and ham, some sweet pepper and tomato. Took the picture before I ‘closed’ the omelet.

Easy dinner:  some meat from evening before, plus some vegi Quorn. Meat mixed with some cauliflower rice (Becoming one of my favorites), spinach, broccoli, sweet pepper and some sauce.

17th of December (Shirataki & bread time)

2014-12-17 12.17.50
Lunch, 400 calories and around 7 grams of carb (+ dressing)

Decided to keep it easy for lunch, so salad with some mozzarella.

But for the dinner I did a bit more, broccoli and mixed together meat, onions, sweet pepper, spinach and some Shirataki noodles.

2014-12-17 19.30.27
478 calories and 36 grams of carb. Most of the carb was in the broccoli.

A word about Shirataki.

Not really sure if it is correct to call it noodles. I do have Shirataki rice and spaghetti also but to be honest, it has nothing to do with noodles, rice or spaghetti. I do use it as a pasta/rice replacement but it taste nothing like the real thing. When you open the bag to get the liquid out (total different from pasta) it stinks of fish, really bad smell. Then after rinse with water a few times, cook them on the pan, mix a lot of good stuff in. Next thing that is rather different is that it is really chewy, think octopus or calamari. But hey, it got almost no calories and no carb…

The first few times I had it I swore that I would never buy it again, but ended up buying some “pasta” Shirataki. The meal this day was the best I ever had with this Shirataki pasta. So I did not give up on it yet.

Low carb bread

I baked flax seed bread a few times, very special bread but I do like it but when I came across some bread mixtures with low carb I had to give it a try.

So here I made the first one, add water to the mixture, mix it :-) and then let it stand for an hour. Bake in oven for 50 minutes and that’s it. Reminds me a bit of the bread we get in Denmark, brown bread with lots of grain (We also get that here in Switzerland)

2014-12-17 21.24.15

2014-12-17 22.26.13

The mixture I used (https://www.nu3.de/konzelmanns-low-carb-eiweiss-brot-classic-backmischung-doppelpack-2-x-370-g.html) got around 220 calories and 5 grams of carb for each 100 gram of bread. I consider that awesome :-)

19th of December

Another day, another omelet:

2014-12-19 06.31.56
A typical Sam breakfast (Just no bacon this time)

For lunch I brought some of the bread I made the evening before. Since the slices where rather small I skipped making real sandwiches (Going to get a new bread-form). So just bread and cheese, quick and I could eat it at the Mac :-)

2014-12-19 12.07.38
516 calories and only 6 carb, hard to beat :-)

 21st of December

Sunday brunch time, so a omelet with 3 eggs and a bit extra, such as bacon, kiwi, lots of spinach, damn that was good :-)

2014-12-21 11.18.59
Breakfast/brunch with 600 calories and just 18 grams of carb, oh yeah, will do that again.. and again…

Had another nice shake for lunch, together with some low carb bread :-)

2014-12-21 12.28.34


So a good weekend; did cheat one day with a wrap from McDonalds. Thought I would be “wise” and not have a big tasty burger as my son had. Turned out that my warp had 2 grams less carb than his burger, that will teach me. Anyway, was a good wrap ;-)

Weight dropped 1.1 kg that week, but I also had a small spike the weekend before. so all went after plan.
