What I Eat In A Day: Low Carb High Fat

Hello to my beautiful followers,

One of my long standing followers asked for me to share what I’ve been eating in a day while on low carb, high fat. To be honest its been such a learning curve! I didn’t realise so many things had carbs in it. I started my low carb journey about 3 months ago with the help of Vicky Kuriel’s 6 week low carb challenge.

In the first 6 weeks I lost just under 3 kilos. I probably could have lost more weight if I followed the guide more closely and had scales. Anyway post the 6 week challenge and I’m still adopting a low carb lifestyle. I’ve been regularly sharing my learnings and meals on Instagram Stories (I also have it saved under highlights- Low Carb) but here’s a recap for easy reference.

Breakfast

From Monday to Friday, I fast and don’t have breakfast. If you want a separate post about intermittent fasting please let me know.

On the weekends I tend to have a late brekkie with Ben. Below are my go to low carb brekkies.

Bacon and 2 scrambled eggs (excluding tomatoes and cheese). Approx 457 calories and 3 grams of carbs.

Recipe: Nourish Bowl aka Bowl Full of Leftovers

Hello lovely people,

One of my special followers reached out to me to share my nourish bowl recipe, you know who you are. To me a nourish bowl or buddha bowl is pretty much a bowl full of leftovers. You can put whatever you want in it and that’s just what I did with the bowl below. Disclaimer, this is not the healthiest nourish bowl, but you can put whatever you want and make it as healthy or as naughty as you want.

What you need:

  • Coles Brown Rice and Quinoa (I find this is the best as it doesn’t bloat me like other brands)
  • Cooked chicken
  • Roasted sweet potatoes
  • Grated carrot
  • Avocado
  • Hummus
