DAY 7: 

Breakfast:  Halloumi Avocado Toast

Ingredients:

  • Slice of zero carb bread (recommendations in day 1)
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese (full fat)  0.5 net carbs
  • 1 large avocado  2.5 net carbs
  • 3 pieces of halloumi cheese
  • Salt and pepper 
  • Hot sauce or spicy mayo (optional)

Halloumi:  Grease up your pan with oil or butter and heat it up. Grill your halloumi cheese until you can see brown grill lines. 

Toast:  Toast the bread until crunchy and add the cream cheese. Mash up the avocado, season it, and spread over the cream cheese. Take your halloumi cheese and add it on top.

Optional:  For extra flavor, you can drizzle hot sauce or spicy mayo!

Enjoy! 

Total Net Carbs: Approximately 3

 

Lunch:  Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Ingredients:

  • 2 small heads cauliflower, cut into florets  14.8 net carbs
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream  5 net carbs
  • 5 Oz cream cheese  3.75 net carbs
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar  4.2 net carbs
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella  3.5 net carbs
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (optional- net carbs depends on brand and type)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Butter, to grease the baking dish

Tip: To make the top extra crunchy, you can add pork rinds, parmesan cheese, and olive oil!

 

Cauliflower:  Cut up your cauliflower in florets, place the pieces on a tin, and season with olive oil and salt. Cook for about 40 minutes or until you see the cauliflower start to crisp up. 

Mac and cheese:  Meanwhile, heat your heavy cream in a large pot. Bring up to a simmer, then decrease heat to low and stir in cheeses (add slowly) until melted. Remove from heat, add hot sauce if using and season with salt and pepper, then fold in roasted cauliflower. Taste and season more if needed. 

In the oven:  Grease a baking dish with butter, and add your mac and cheese. If you’re using pork rinds, parmesan, and olive oil for extra crunch, mix them and add to the top of the dish. Put the dish in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or when you see a golden brown color form on the top.

 

Disclaimer: This may seem like a lot of carbs, but it’s a big dish. You most probably won’t eat all of it in one sitting. So, if you eat a quarter or half the dish, divide the total net carbs by a quarter or half. The rest can be saved and reheated for your next meal!

Also, the cheese types and portions can be played with, if you have a different type of cheese you like or you want more or less of it, go for it!

Total Net Carbs: Approximately 31

Dinner:  Cold Cut Roll Ups 

 

cold cuts

Ingredients:

  • A few slices of your favorite cold cuts (net carbs depend on the type of cold cuts, check the label)
  • A few pieces of lettuce sliced up  0.2 net carbs
  • 1 slice of bacon
  • Spicy mayo (or another sauce you like, Caesar, hot sauce… )
  • 1 egg  0.4 net carbs
  • Salt and pepper

After cooking the bacon, set it aside on a paper towel lined plate. Cook your egg sunny side up, be careful not to break the yolk. Place one slice of a cold cut on a plate, add the sauce of your choosing, a few sliced up pieces of lettuce, your sunny side up egg, and the bacon - cut up into small bits. Then, add a second slice of a cold cut on top. 

You can also use individual cold cut slices and, instead of making a sandwich, make cold cut rolls with all the ingredients inside, kind of like a wrap!

Total Net Carbs: Approximately 1 (add the net carbs of the cold cuts)


Total Net Carbs for the Day: Approximately 40  -  keep in mind that, while 40 is not a large amount of net carbs, you’re not really eating 40 grams of net carbs. You most probably won't eat the entire cauliflower dish because it is quite large. The real amount of net carbs you will be eating is probably half of this.
