Yesterday was was a pretty easy day, I had green eggs and tomatoes for breakfast and turkey with a side of cauliflower for lunch. I snacked on some cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and almonds when I was hungry throughout the day. I did not have any issues until dinner time.
Because we had things to do once my husband got off work yesterday, we were out during dinner time. At first we tried to wait until we got back home to eat, but when the kids started whining about their bellies growling we decided to stop for fast food. My husband pulled into Taco Bell’s drive through and I told him what I wanted. Then I remembered that I was trying to stay low-carb, so after I stared at the menu for about 5 minutes I still did not know what they offered that I felt comfortable eating. I told my husband I couldn’t eat there and he should just order himself and the kids something and I could wait until we got home. Instead, he asked where I could eat. I remembered reading this post on Your Lighter Side, so I knew I could eat a Baconator from Wendy’s. I ended up with a Baconator made without a bun or ketchup, which according to Wendy’s nutritional information on their website, has only 3 carbs. I am not much of a fan of burgers unless they are homemade and I don’t like bacon all that much, so it wasn’t the best dinner in my opinion, but it was the only thing I knew I could eat, so I ate it.
I am glad that I found something to eat while we were out, but for someone who is still learning what is ok to eat while living low-carb and what is not ok, this was a bit of a hassle and quite nerve wracking. I think that until I am more comfortable with my new WOE I will be eating at home rather than attempting to go out to eat.
