I love the low carb meal threads. They are a great source of ideas. I'll just post once though since *ahem* I eat the same thing every day. Yesterday I had

Breakfast
2 Whole Deviled Eggs

Lunch
Balsamic Salad with Avocado
Buttered Pot Roast

Dinner
BBQ Pork Shoulder

Snacks
Coconut Oil Chocolates
Faux Chocolate Mousse

I woke up feeling a little weak, so I ate a bit more than I usually do in the mornings. Breakfast/lunch combo of 3 Old Wisconsin Turkey Sticks (.5 ounces each, on sale for 25 cents at the store) and about 2 ounces of gruyere cheese, plus a cup of coffee with 3 tablespoons of heavy cream.

For dinner last night I had a lettuce wrap burger (about 1/4 pound) with mayonnaise, mustard, red onion, and lots of pickles.

Buttered pot roast! Now you went and made me hungry and it's 1:00 am and I should be asleep (and not hungry)!

That sounds delicious!

This is what I ate Monday, July 9:

Breakfast: avocado, 2/3 of a habanero and pepperjack cheese chicken sausage with choi sum (leftovers from Saturday night dinner, reheated in the microwave), coffee with cocoa and coconut oil (try Torani's SF salted caramel syrup--delicious!)

Lunch: small St. Tropez Express tuna salad (one scoop, instead of three, with smaller quantities of lettuce, tomato and cucumber), hard-boiled egg (dressed in olive oil), 1 oz. baking chocolate


Dinner: omelet with smoked salmon and onion (with sambal oelek on top), over kale; low-carb ice cream, SF jello, coffee with coconut oil

When I asked my mom how to make it, she said "When in doubt, add more butter".

Daytona, how can I make 'buttered' pot roast? I've never heard of it and have no idea how to make one, but I'd love to try it!
