Every once in awhile, I like to incorporate a lighter diet. Typically, on such days, I utilize the aid of a fiber supplement as well. It's sort of a time to give my digestive system a bit of a rest and to help cleanse.
Please note that I do not suffer from constipation. Some people, on low carb diets, appear to have this problem. I do not. I simply use the fiber as a way of "working out" my system of elimination.
Having said all that, this is what I've eaten so far:

+ one cup choco-coffee *
* a few heaping tablespoons of pure cocoa powder, a heaping teaspoon of instant coffee, a dash of half-and-half and stevia to taste
+ scrambled "cheesy" eggs (about 2 1/2 eggs, a slice of cheddar cheese, a dash of half-and-half)
+ 1 small sausage link
+ 3/4 of an avocado
+ one cup choco-coffee and a fiber supplement (psyllium)
+ a vanilla-whey protein shake (low-carb vanilla whey powder, about 4oz of half and half, stevia to taste)
+ 6 turkey broccoli "tacos" (thinly sliced turkey, a spoonful of sour cream in the center of the turkey and topped with sauteed broccoli and onions)
+ 2 oz prosciutto
+ 1 oz. cream cheese
+ 1 glass red wine
More to come tomorrow?
