Skillet Pork & Peppers

I dined _in_ yesterday for lunch - this is a quick and easy 1-skillet meal that you can prepare in just a few minutes. 

I started by taking some thawed boneless pork chops and put them on high heat in the skillet with some butter. Once those were getting close to done, I took them out and sliced them into strips. They went back into the pan with salt & pepper. 

Then, I chopped some bell peppers and put those in with the pork. I drizzled soy sauce on the whole works and covered the skillet, dropped the heat to medium, and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. 

Easy, tasty, and low in carbs.

Panera Bread - Power Bowl

I'm sure that a place with a name like "Panera Bread" strikes fear into every LCD's soul -- after all, doesn't bread deliver a lethal dose of carbs to our ketotic state?

The answer is yes, so don't go there for bread. No bread. NO BREAD!

This was tough for me; before I entered the low-carb lifestyle, I would often stop in for a delicious whole grain bagel with their fantastic honey walnut creamcheese. My goodness.

Anyway, Panera understands that some of their customers are trying to shrink, so they offer lower-carb selections on their "Power Menu". I have sampled almost all of them, and can confirm that they are tasty.

Here is the breakfast power bowl with steak. This features eggs, tomatoes, avocado, and sirloin steak. Simple and yummy.

Here is a link to their full nutrition guide. The power menu items are down at the bottom:

Breakfast Almond Biscuits

These low-carb biscuits were made this weekend by Mrs. LCD and feature sausage, cheese, and almond flour -- I will post the recipe in the comments. She did good!

I've had a few for breakfast the past few days; a few seconds in the microwave is just right.

Foosackly's Naked Tender Salad

If you know me, you've probably heard me begfoosackly's to grill some chicken. That just needs to happen. 

In the meantime, the LCD can enjoy some foo goodness and still watch their carbs. Order your tenders "naked" (or "non-breaded" for the modest) and they'll do you right. 

You may have to go inside instead of driving through; it takes a few extra minutes because they cook them special just for you.
