Temptations I Resisted

Appetizers Part 1

Appetizers Part 2

LC Rolls and Bacon Wrapped Avocado

Tonight is my niece's birthday party. My sister asked that we bring over some low carb creamed spinach. She also inquired about what types of food I'm able to eat. Isn't that sweet? I hope that will translate into an option or two that's truly low carb. Sometimes other peoples perception about what's LC isn't in fact LC. We shall see. I'll report back and try to take pictures.

11:00 am

+ The Wowee Zowee Meal Replacement Shake - 3 oz of organic heavy cream, 5 oz of purified water, 2 scoops of natural vanilla whey protein powder, 1 scoop of Amazing Grass Chocolate Green SuperFood, 1 tsp of organic instant coffee, a pinch of pure stevia, and 1/4 tsp of Also Salt)

+ a swig of organic, grass fed yogurt

2:30 pm (pictured above)

+ two rice-free, sashimi-rolls * <--- tasty! + an organic avocado, sliced and wrapped with natural, thick cut bacon + a swig of organic, grass fed yogurt

* I took out the little bit of carrot that was in the roll. Not a big deal.

5:00 pm

+ a cup of organic instant coffee with a few ounces of organic low fat milk and a pinch of pure stevia

Note: We had a power outage yesterday - which extended into today (Sunday). Hopefully the problem is resolved now. It appears to be. But, you never know!

6:45 - 8:30 pm (partially posted above)

+ assorted LC appetizers: asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, black olives, salami, apple smoked bacon, guacamole and mozzarella cheese

+ half a Cornish game hen with creamed spinach on the side

More to come ... I hope!

It's awesome that your family takes your way of eating into consideration. I hope you have a great time and that your niece has a great birthday party!

Thanks, Oct. :)

Yeah, it was very considerate of my sister. She's got a heart of gold.

To be honest, I was a little nervous about this dinner. My sister is a great cook but she's completely un-LC. If we were eating at a restaurant, I'd have more discretion over what choices I could make. Here, I'm basically boxed in. Hopefully, it'll all work out. If not, I'll deal with it.

I hope you and Cro have a fantastic weekend. :)
