I didn't think this was possible......
« on: March 30, 2019, 01:11:55 PM »
Had dinner at Cracker Barrel last night, 7 net carbs!

Pulled up the Keto diet tracker app as I browsed the menu.  Found grilled lemonpepper trout zero carbs.  Came with three sides, that was the tough part.  Found turnip greens, 2 net carbs.  Steamed brocolli, 2 net carbs and side salad, 3 net carbs. 

I wanted chicken livers, they have good chicken livers, app showed 2.32 net carbs.  Then I noticed that was for one liver.  They usually serve about a dozen.  Nixed that.

BTY, wife had the smokehouse breakfast.  Eggs & sausage, she ate two biscuits topped with a bowl of sausage gravy each and a bowl of grits.  But she is 5'7" and weighs 118 lbs so she can do that.  but it sure was tough resisting that plate of biscuits sitting between us.

Great job!  You can definitely eat out and stick with low-carb/Keto.  It just takes a little creativity and some will power.


P.S. It's extremely possible to make low-carb biscuits & Gravy (at home)!!!  I've been very busy lately (and still have a few forum things to work on).  And I'll be out of town much of this next week (in Florida), but I'll try my best to post the biscuits & gravy recipes very soon.

Foer gravy  I use Carb Quick baking mix, Half & Half cream, sausage drippings  and S&P

Just remember to mix well since Carb Quick can have a gritty texture
