Low Carbing and Faltering - This May Help You Get Back On Track

Carolyn is a writer, runner, mother and diabetic. She also has an amazing blog 'All Day I Dream About Food'. She lives for food, and experiments in creating delicious low carb, gluten free recipes.

Low Carb Paleo Greens, Eggs and Ham Salad

She has recently written "Top 10 Tips for Getting Back On Track With Your Low Carb Diet" ... because as she says ... "We all falter sometimes, and if you want to get back on track with your healthy low carb or keto diet," you may find these tips handy.

Here they are:

"1. Whatever you do, don’t beat yourself up!

2. Don’t excuse your behaviour. Own it.

3. Take notes or keep a journal.

4. Eat Salad for Breakfast. Or don’t eat any breakfast at all.

5. Get Moving.

6. Sip water and other clear, low carb liquids.

7. Cut out the alcohol.

8. Find a buddy or a support group.

9. Don’t deprive or punish yourself.

10. Search out some new fun recipes. Get excited about cooking and eating this way again!"

... there are many ways that living the LCHF lifestyle can help both in weight loss, better blood sugar control, even healthier teeth... and more besides! More and more people world-wide are discovering for themselves the difference it can make to health and well-being. As always it must be a personal choice.

Now my personal choice for my LCHF breakfast this morning was this, a delicious cheesy mushroom omelette so easy to make and very tasty and nutritious.

Cheesy mushroom omelette

Serves 1 (0.3g carbs)

1 tbsp olive oil
handful button or chestnut mushrooms, sliced
25g cheddar, grated
small handful parsley leaves, roughly chopped
2 eggs, beaten

1. Heat the olive oil in a small non-stick frying pan. Tip in the mushrooms and fry over a high heat, stirring occasionally for 2-3 mins until golden. Lift out of the pan into a bowl and mix with the cheese and parsley.
2. Place the pan back on the heat and swirl the eggs into it. Cook for 1 min or until set to your liking, swirling with a fork now and again.
3. Spoon the mushroom mix over one half of the omelette. Using a spatula or palette knife, flip the omelette over to cover the mushrooms. Cook for a few moments more, lift onto a plate and eat by itself or perhaps with a nice salad.

Good advice and this recipe looks wonderful, thank you :) Thank for commenting on my blog. I have a quiet morning after hectic few days on holiday, and wifi is good at present so I am trying to return a few visits.

Hi Denise ... and many thanks for your comment. Your holiday sounded wonderful, enjoyed looking at your posts. You can't beat an omelette to start the day - or any time of day.

Have a good weekend.

All the best Jan

I'd definitely recommend tip number 3, keeping a food journal. I think that helps no matter what kind of diet you're on, writing down what you eat helps you to see exactly what's going in as otherwise it's easy to slip off track. Thank you for reminding me about omelettes, I don't eat them very often but they're delicious and you can add whatever's in the fridge. A great way for using up leftovers too.

I love omlettes... I whip them up for any meal and I feel satisfied by them... you can add so many different and healthy veggies... yummy xox ♡

Hi Jo ... and many thanks for your comment. I think Tip 3 can help a lot of folks, it can be most useful to keep a food diary / journal.

Omelettes are just great aren't they - and as you say just add whatever may be in your fridge e.g ham, peppers, and of course cheese and mushrooms

Hope you have a good weekend

All the best Jan

I love breakfast..but oatmeal. lol
I know low carb kick starts your weight loss, but omlette I cant eat alone. I need some sauce or pickle.

Hi Launna ... many thanks for your comment. Have to agree with you omelettes and added healthy vegetables are definitely yummy!

Best Wishes for a good weekend

All the best Jan

Hi Z @Kickingkilos ... always nice to read your comments. Yes, low carb does help with weight loss and improved blood sugar levels for diabetics.
Omelettes are great ... and there are those who do prefer a little something added!
Now some lovely herbs, and seasoning works well for me...

Have a good weekend

All the best Jan

These recipes sound great and look good too.

Thanks for visiting.

Looks like a wonderful breakfast, Jan...better than a salad! That would not satisfy me at all, but your omelette would!

Love all those tips!! All worth remembering at every point of a health/fitness journey.

Lowcarb team member said...

Hi Gail ... many thanks for your comment. Yes both the salad and omelette certainly appear in my menu plans.

Have a good weekend

All the best Jan

Hi Amy ...and thanks for your comment. Eggs do appear in my weekly shopping basket and are on the menu every day. Salads are great but I tend to eat mine later in the day. I know there are those that may prefer cold meats etc for breakfast, but we each do what best suits us and any health / lifestyle issues.

Have a lovely weekend - and thanks as always for visiting.

All the best Jan
