Dining out

Hi, here I am! Just got back from a long weekend in Florida, where I joined MM on his road trip for a stretch! It was so nice to get away from the cold and gray for a few warm sunny days!

This trip provided some challenges. I was traveling light to save time (just a carry on). And we were visiting and staying with family, so we were somewhat limited in our food choices. The good news is that most everyone has eggs and cheese in the fridge! We had eggs and bacon for breakfast each day – perfect. I just loaded on the cheese and skipped the toast.

For other meals, we ate out quite a bit, or ordered takeout, so I had choices. I stuck to meat and vegetable dishes, or caesar salads for the most part. I made sure to order a decadently fatty appetizer to balance things out and help keep me full. When given a choice I substituted a salad or onion rings for potato or french fries with the main meal. If I got peckish in between meals, I grabbed a slice of cheese to tide me over.

It was fairly simple, and worked out pretty well. Seems like most of the menus I encountered offered some sort of LCHF friendly meal or allowed substitutions to make the meal low carb at least. This made it easy to fly under the radar and I didn’t really have to talk about the fact that I am “dieting.” I’d say this new lifestyle travels pretty well!
