Two nights ago I made low carb BBQ chicken in the slow cooker. I just put
frozen drumsticks, tomato paste, chili powder, sugar substitute, olive oil, garlic & salt. It was simple but finger-sticking tastiness! I got rid of the bones from the left over and chopped some celery & green onions and mixed them all with mayo & mustard. I used it for my BBQ chicken salad sandwich for lunch with my low-carb bread.
My bread is about 1g of carbs / slice, so the total carbs per sandwich shouldn’t be more than 3g of carbs. Since I’m not drinking any milk, I need to make sure I have enough calcium in my body. So I added 70g of marble cheese, which (according to the label) is about 50% of your required calcium intake for the day. For dessert, I made some low carb chocolate muffin (2g of carb). Since cheese is 1g of carb per ounce (28g), My total carbs of my lunch today should be around 7.5g 🙂
I’m strictly sticking to my low carb regime, 3g in the morning, 6-12g for lunch and dinner. My blood sugar level has been creeping up since the New Years. Since yesterday, I’ve been counting carbs very diligently, because my goal is, to have a healthy body for the rest of my life !!
