L> KFC chicken & potatoes w/gravy, Dt. Dew  1/2
S> steak, cottage cheese, brocco salad, sweet potatoes
Snacks> angel cake w/raspberries sw. w/xylitol, whip cream 

Mom and Dad's anniversary today, 47th.  Hence the steak dinner and dessert.  I tried finding nutritional info for the angel cake online and got wildly conflicting numbers.  But I could taste that it was crazy sweet.  I'm sure I was over today.  Also, supper was eaten at brother's house and I know that brocco salad has sugar in the dressing.  While I didn't eat a lot of it, I could tell it was more sugar than I should have been having.

Tues., Sept.4
B> Spam, 2 fried eggs w/cheese, coffee w/creamer  2/1
L> wild rice soup, chicken fillet, cottage cheese, few bites watermelon  6/2
S> 1 bowl cabbage soup, sliced colby cheese  4/2
Snacks> sf root beer float, 2 (?) tsp pb  2/1

Wed., Sept.5
B> scrambled eggs w/Spam, coffee w/creamer  2/1
L> wild rice soup, cottage cheese, two orange segments, bell pepper strip  6/2
S> steak, red pepper, 1/4c mashed potatoes w/parmesan & garlic  2/2

Thurs., Sept.6
B> scrambled eggs w/Spam, sf hot chocolate  2/1
L> taco salad w/chicken, cottage cheese, 1 apple slice  3/2
S> Subway pulled pork on flatbread, Pringles  3/3
Snacks> tiny apple with pb  5/1

I am waiting to hear back from Subway about the nutritional info for the pulled pork.  I guessed it to be the same as the tuna for now.

Fri., Sept.7
B> 1 Ezekial toast with pb, coffee w/creamer  4/2
L> sloppy joe meat w/cheese, cottage cheese, few pineapple tidbits  6/2
S> oven roasted garden baby potatoes, red pepper chunks, broiled lake trout  3/2
Snacks> 4 little homemade low-sugar chocolate chip cookies
s/c= ? (13/6 without cookies)

I altered a recipe for the cookies, recipe below.  Not sure what the carb count would be really.  I obviously went over as I was already at the limit prior to eating the cookies.  But I've been craving a homemade goody for a couple of weeks.

Sat., Sept.8
B> scrambled eggs & spam, coffee w/creamer  2/1
L> tiny apple, cheese, pepperoni  5/1
S> 2 Ezekial toasts w/pb, ice water w/splash of SoBe 6/3
Snacks> 2 little homemade chocolate chip cookies, 1 Ezekial toast w/pb  3/1
s/c=16/6 without counting the little cookies

Worked for the evening and didn't get done until after 10pm.  I was feeling pretty darn hungry after seven hours of not eating, hence the two pieces of toast.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
(adapted from Honeyville)

2 & 1/2c blanched almond flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2c xylitol
1/2c stevia (I used just under 1/2c.)
1/4c butter, melted
1/4c coconut oil
10 drops liquid vanilla stevia
1 egg
3 Tbsp sugar-free chocolate chips
3 Tbsp dark chocolate chips

1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Stir together wet ingredients in a smaller bowl.
3. Mix wet ingredients into dry.
4. Form 1/2 inch balls and press onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes.
6. Cool and serve.

Follow the link for the original, as I changed this quite a bit.  I got approximately 26 little cookies out of this recipe.  They are a somewhat soft cookie, so if you want a crispy treat, this is not it.  Tastes great!  Of course, you can use all sugar-free chocolate chips to reduce the carbs even further.  I just had both on hand.
