I get asked quite frequently to share my food logs. Since I finally remembered to take photos of all of my food, I decided why the hell not do it today?
FYI – I don’t claim to be a food photographer and I definitely don’t create “masterpieces” in the kitchen. My food is real, homemade and simple!
I start every morning (around 5:30am) with coffee and MCT Oil. Usually, I just add a tablespoon of MCT (moderate chain triglycerides) to my coffee and drink it, but lately I’ve been diggin a little extra somethin somethin.
Behold: the hot chocolate coffee…. 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream + 1 tablespoon MCT oil + 1/2 teaspoon each of chocolate and vanilla sugar free syrups all blended together into a beautiful “have a great day” kind of drink.

Between 11-12pm, I have my first meal. It usually looks like breakfast but sometimes I go for lunch items like tuna or egg salad.
Today I decided to enjoy a little breakfast medley of salami, havarti cheese, kale sautéed in bacon fat, bacon, & eggs.

Around 3pm, I typically have some sort of tea. Harney & Sons has been my go-to this winter. It’s warm and delicious and tastes great with 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream! (not pictured)
Meal two is always dinner. Tonight I made a rendition of this Jalapeno Popper Soup from I Breathe, I’m Hungry. I added some chicken and bulked it up slightly, but the idea is the same! I also added some Cello Whisps on the side because…. why not?

Last but not least…. DESSERT! I love eating dessert.
Who says you can’t have “carby” things while staying low carb high fat?? I eat Flapjacked Mighty Muffins pretty regularly. I use to start each day with one, but since going LCHF, I have switched them to the end of my day.
On the docket for tonights dessert? Half a Mighty Muffin cooked with half a scoop of Gardenia Chocolate protein powder by Body Nutrition (the best vegan protein powder I have found!) and then topped with 1 tablespoon of natural chunky peanut butter and pecans. NOM.
