About Me

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
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!!

Low Carb Food Gospel

When I think of low carbing, I think of items that we eat everyday. Like the good book - it provides the  food source which nourishes our bodies. I try to eat low carb, between 20 - 60 carbs a day.

My favorite fruits !

 People ask me if I incorporate fruit into my low carb diet. The answer is  of course !!  My favorites are blueberries and blackberries.   The cantaloupe was on sale for $1.75 each; the Louisiana Strawberries were $1.98; bananas 58 cents a pound.  I think the blue berries and blackberries were around $2.50 each.


For lunch today, I created my own Tuna Salad !!  (tuna - 178 calories) (2 eggs  - 156 calories)

I had dueling lettuce.  The one on the left is from the farmer's market.  The one on the right from the supermarket.  I cut up the lettuce and tomato.. but only used two boiled eggs and one can of tuna.

Food arranged and ready to eat !!

Add a little of Mrs. Dash, pepper, and two tablespoons of Ranch dressing. (8 carbs)
Doesn't my tuna salad look delicious ???


1/3 cup of nuts for a low carb snack !

For supper - 2 ounces spaghetti ; taco salad (taco shell 16 carbs)

For exercise today, I participated in my RPM (spinning)  and Body Pump (weightlifting) class at Anytime Fitness !
