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 !!

  1. to expand on the first post, there are tortallis that are low carb, whole wheat, high fiber, that are perfect for low carb wraps. almost every grocery store would have them, and they should be right with the regular ones. another alternative is to make pinwheels with just meat and cheese that you can wrap in plastic so they don’t come apart, take a salad to school and get a dressing packet from the condiments area if your school has that sort of thing. you can find low carb crackers to have with the pinwheels, or you can make them with the tortallis. there’s a limit to what you can do going to school, but if you just rotate these few things, change the dressing you use on the wrap or the salad, meats and cheeses are very abundant in different kinds. you can take celery sticks, because they use more calories to eat than they have and have limited digestion, they keep you full. make sure to use italian type dressings to minimize the sugar you take in (dressings have sugar a lot of the time) or ranch, which has none usually. mayo is a perfect thing for the wrap, so is mustard.
