About Me

This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Easy to prepare low-carb meals ! (with pictures!)

There's nothing like creating your own low carb meal. It does not have to be fancy or cost a lot.

My choice for brunch today was a lemon peppered chicken breast salad. I topped it with bacon bits, and Ken's Ranch Dressing, 2 oz. (2 carbs).

I also prepared one slice of wheat toast. Lemon peppered chicken is easy to make. I use the frozen ones sold by Schwan's. Just pop one in the oven, cut up your lettuce, tomato and cheese, throw in a few bacon bits -- top with Ranch dressing and walla... your own complete chicken salad !! I love eating low carb because you CAN have a LOT of food and feel full, without indulging in sugars. I drink Lipton diet tea with water.

For dinner, I boiled two eggs, chopped them up with a bit of pickle, add mayo, put on two slices of wheat toast. Again, another inexpensive way to complete your meal. A Coke Zero is my favorite drink to quench my thirst.

I started off the day exercising to Leslie Sansone's Melt Away Your Belly Fat video. She reminds us of lots of hidden dangers are hidden in the excess fat that surrounds our belly. I was able to complete three miles. When I got back from church, I did a mile on the treadmill at home.

I hope everyone has a wonderful evening. Please drop me a note to let me know if you enjoy the pictures. I may end up posting MORE :)
