I have never had anything to eat at 5 guys before. One night while waiting out the ballet schedule I headed to the mall. There aren't a lot of no/low carb options but I did wander in to 5 guys. They make bunless burgers....SOLD! And. It. Was. AMAZING!!!
I am trying to figure out how to make omelets. I have no idea how to make one. I have tried 2 times now....both have turned out like scrambled eggs with a few extra foods tossed in. I added broccoli, cheese, ham cubes, asparagus and avocado. (Not all in one omelete!!)
This was probably one of my most favorite things I have made...chicken tacos. I made my own hard shell taco shells by using low carb tortilla shells and baking them. I added chicken mixed with salsa and then added some cheese and sour cream. Yummy!
I made these chocolate chip cookies....they gave me horrible stomach pains and "other" issues. I won't be making them again! We (Dan is helping me try new recipes) made some cauliflower bread sticks. They looked SO good on Pinterest. So good that I made a huge pan of it. And....it was nasty. So gross. Good thing we have chickens. They loved the low carb cauliflower breadsticks. Bleh.
We have gone out a few times for birthdays. While the others eat huge birthday Sundaes, I munched on steamed broccoli.
Eating no/low carb doesn't allow for many crunchy things like chips. A friend told me she made her own tortilla chips so I gave it a try! They don't taste like the good ole' store ones, but they tasted good enough to eat and make nachos with!
Here are the changes I have noticed 4 weeks in. I am not really that hungry anymore. I don't really crave sugar or sweet things anymore. I did crave puppy chow for a few days. My late night snack tonight was cauliflower and dill dip....not oreo cookies and milk. I can't really explain why/how this is working for me. I just know I feel better and my head doesn't seem as clouded. I would say I have more energy too. I have a lot more weight to drop and I am hoping with some exercise I can gain some more momentum and drop some more pounds.
We will see what the next month brings for me. I'll keep you posted! Happy belated Valentine's Day!!!
