Here is what eat on a day I am low carb TFing:
B: 3 eggs scrambled with kale or spinach and garlic
S: celery sticks with almond butter
L: large salad with veggies and chilled protein like chicken with oil and vinegar, or tuna OR (when cold) a protein and veggie soup
D: pork chops with grilled onions (in butter), sauerkraut, broccoli and salad
Snack/Dessert: plain whole milk yogurt and ½ diced apple OR berries
These meals provide veggies (especially green) with almost each meal and snacks that combine veggies with fat and protein. Root veggies, beans and fruit are at a min. No grains. Fat comes from dairy, eggs, nuts and oils.
I strive to eat this way but am making only baby steps in getting there. I need to lower my triglycerides, watch my blood sugar and lose weight. I also have a mean sweet tooth. My family are notorious carbaholics and I am a former vegetarian (make that pastatarian).
I highly recommend you read Dr Michael Eades book Protein Power or Protein Power Lifeplan. They are low carb eating books, but I recommend reading them for the excellent information about how high carbs, not high fat lead to diabetes, heart disease and other health issues. The details on what “good”, “bad” and total cholesterol, plus triglycerides REALLY means is very educational.
I also enjoy Mark’s Daily Apple site and his Primal Blueprint information, although I have not read the book. Nourishing Traditions is an outstanding source as well, along with the Weston Price website.
