Yeah, the "ramen" these days is shredded cabbage, bean sprouts, or "miracle" noodles. None of them are as good as the real thing, but I make do.

In general I’ve got three possibilities

1. Coffee with an Atkins vanilla shake as creamer, along with a serving or two of habanero bbq almonds (3-5g net carbs).

2.Bacon burger casserole (carbs entirely depend on how much cheese I put in, but usually 4g for 2svg)

3. Omelette with bacon plus a little diced onion and green peppers and cheddar (estimate 6-8g).

Today...I’m feeling number 1.

Shredded sharp cheddar (9g fat, 2g carb, 6g protein). It’s a makeshift meal to clear the freezer since I usually have one or two frozen burgers left over from a pack after burger night, and I’ve always got cheddar and bacon bits around for salads and omelettes.

Was thinking velvetta or some other franken cheese. Ooooh, now I'm interested. Loves a meat and cheese dish. Sounds good. What else is in it?

Well the beauty of a makeshift meal is that it's whatever's on hand :D Right now, I've got onions for omelettes and fresh salsa for a buffalo chicken salad that could add a little flavor without adding much in the way of carbs. As a dinner option, I'd probably add in onion along with some frozen peas and carrots (5g net carb/svg).

Speaking of beef, one thing I'll have to try is modifying my old Shepherds Pie recipe. Base was ground beef w/ frozen peas and carrots with worchestire sauce for flavor. That alone had decent flavor. The real carbs got added with a topper of mashed potatoes, which was then topped with a hefty layer of cheddar. Delicious...but potatoes aren't on the menu any more. Mashed cauliflower might suffice, but I'd probably be just as happy skipping the potato part all together.

That sounds good.

I had fried bologna and cheese on a low carb wrap, salt and pepper pork rinds and Philadelpia cream cheese dip, and a pickle.

I had some leftover riced cauliflower so I made fried rice out of it. Some chopped ham, one egg, soy sauce, ginger and black pepper. A touch of sesame oil at the end. Washed it down with the last cup of black coffee and a Core Power chocolate shake.

5 grams of carbs for the shake and maybe less than that for the fried rice. The fried rice came out surprisingly good.

Went to town this morning for a car part and some groceries. BH was hungry and wanted to stop by Sonic on the way home. I had a footlong cheese coney with mustard and onions, no bun.

Red salmon out of the can, with a splash of lemon juice, Louisiana Hot Sauce, and a forkful of Mayo thrown in. 2 slices of Swiss cheese.

Leftover nachos from last night. Low carb tortilla cut up into 5 or 6 pieces and fried to crisp it. Topped with ground beef, cheddar jack cheese, jalapeño peppers, and sour cream. Put all the pieces together and it was as good as it was last night,
