Food Diary Week 2: Low Carb Menu Plan Week 2

Menu Plan:

--Slow cooker pulled pork (cooked in salsa, cumin, chili powder) 'tacos' with lettuce, homemade guacamole, fresh salsa, and cheese. I have small corn tortillas that are supposedly (per product label) 9 grams of carbs and may have 1--otherwise I'll eat this as a salad.

--Slow cooker corned beef and sauerkraut with caraway seeds. Served topped with melted Swiss cheese and  Thousand Island dressing on the side. Basically a breadless reuben.

--Bunless burgers with roasted brussel sprouts (roasted in basalmic vinegar, shallots and olive oil--may add some bacon)

--Jamaican jerk pork served with salad and roasted Kale (shallots, vinegar, olive oil, some sea salt).

--Take out--leaning toward Longhorn all meat chili and side salad or maybe steak and salad

--Spincah Frittata with feta cheese. I'm trying to use up some bulk feta cheese before it goes bad.

--Taco salad with ground turkey, salsa, light sprinkling of cheese, and almonds.
--Leftover pulled pork and corned beef

Improvement Goals Over Previous Week
--Eat less cheese, even though the menu may not seem like it's less, I will be cutting back on amounts.
--No more kefir for now--too many carbs in my opinion and I don't like it plain
--Reduce consumption of Wasa crackers
--Eat more calories for breakfast
