What I Ate Today 2 Low Carb Gluten Free Dairy Free Paleo

Good morning friends and I’m glad you’re back for another What I Ate Today series. I started this series because I know how hard it can be to get food-inspired when you have so many dietary restrictions. Between being gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, and low carb I know how easy it is to get stuck in boring food routine. But I find that the best way to get food-inspired is to see what others are doing. So hopefully this brings you some inspiration!

I will put all the posts for this series under the ‘Recipes’ tab (at the top of the site). If you missed last months post be sure to check out What I Ate Today #1.

Now that I’ve rambled on, let’s jump right into it!


What I Ate Today #2

Yesterday my morning started off with a protein packed breakfast! I served two runny eggs over my 60-second LOW CARB garlic bread. The bread is super fast and easy to make! Just mix 1 egg + 1 Tablespoon coconut flour + 1 Tablespoon butter + garlic salt to taste + microwave for 60 seconds.

I paired it with some maple turkey sausage, sauerkraut, and an avocado.


what i ate today low carb chocolate smoothie

Since pregnancy has totally crammed my stomach into itty-bitty living space I can’t eat very much in one sitting, so I decided to take my low carb chocolate PB protein smoothie on the road.


what i ate today banana bread

My mid-morning snack was the last bits of a banana bread I made earlier in the week. Definitely not low carb, but this little bit was just enough to hold me over until lunch and hit my chocolate craving perfectly. I guesstimated about 6 carbs for this snack and it was perfect!

I forgot to take a picture of my lunch at lunch, but thankfully I took a picture of it the night before. It was leftovers of the antipasto salad I made. I mixed chick peas, black beans, cucumber, cauliflower, kalamata olives, marinated artichokes, marinated mushrooms, red onion, and a bit of red lentil ‘pasta’.

For the dressing I just mixed some olive oil with fresh squeezed lemon, apple cider vinegar, and salt.

what i ate today chia seed pudding

My mid-afternoon snack was vanilla-coconut chia seed pudding topped with raspberries and blackberries. Soooooo good! I really wish I brought more of this! I could have easily eaten another pudding.

what i ate today blueberry smoothie

When I got home, I whipped up a lower carb blueberry almond-butter smoothie. This smoothie only has about 12g carbs! I promise to put the recipe up soon… but for those who are curious it has banana, blueberries, almond butter, mylk, cacao nibs, collagen, avocado, spinach, camu camu powder (vitamin C), vanilla, hemp seeds, and a pinch of salt.

For dinner I made burrito bowls!

Cauli rice + white rice mixture, ground beef (with chili seasoning) , guacamole, corn, red onions, and tortilla chips. I really wish I had some fresh cilantro to garnish!

    My favorite snack has been dairy free yogurt, frozen or fresh berries, almond butter, and shredded coconut! Sometimes I’ll throw in nuts too. I’ve had it daily for the past few weeks!

      That sounds SO good! What brand of DF yogurt do you buy? I’m always looking for a new favorite!

        I use SO brand! It’s the lowest carb option I found. I use the plain – the tartness is perfect with added fruit!
