This morning I was getting one son off to school, making him breakfast of poached eggs..

 

When I got back my 4 year old wanted Scrambled eggs and sliced tomatoes.. ¬†ūüôā

 

I love that! He eats that because he has seen his father eat that countless times. One way to get your kids to eat healthy, is to let them see you eating great!! Eat well. Make salads and let them help. Let them pick their dressing, but put cheese and bacon in it. Or protein like steak or chicken and let them make up new salads.

 

One thing that people always ask is ” What about the kids? What do I feed them?”

 

If you are doing Atkins they can eat what you are. Just modify it for them. You should be eating plenty of veggies so that is great for them.  I usually make two veggies every meal.

 

My son’s breakfast this morning.

Day 2

Well if you know anything about me, I am not a traditional eater. I hate eggs.. I am not a big breakfast person, But I know it is important for me to eat in the morning.

Today I am having a taco salad without taco.. lol

I had left over ground beef from last nights Cheeseburger casserole and I warmed it up put it on lettuce, added some medium salsa and cheese. I was going to use sour cream but when I pulled it out it was frozen! My little guy had turned up the fridge too high.. grr… but for now that is the start of my day.. I need to go grocery shopping to get my Atkins staples. Ill list them later!
Have a great day!

3 tbs Natural peanut butter

1/4 cup heavy cream

1 tsp granulated splenda

Whip heavy cream til starting to fluff and then add 1 tbs of peanut butter at time. Whip it in well then add splenda.

I did not do servings because I only take a tbs at a time and eat it like a lollipop. I get a lot out of it unless Dh gets in it.. lol.

I am not adding NC counts because there are too many variables on how this could be made. But it is my favorite recipe.

First I roast 3 split chicken breasts. With the bones. They add so much flavor.I rub them with olive oil and salt and pepper.

When done and cooled, I just throw them in the fridge. That way I have quick pickings!

I take the meat off one breast and shred it. I then add chopped celery, Hellman’s Real Mayo and A good brown deli mustard.

You can add onion if you like too. I like mine rather dry and some may like more mustard than mayo or vice versa.

When you are making it just put it in your cookbook on Fatsecret.com as a new recipe and enter in the serving sizes and you will be able to just click ad to food diary and enter it any time you make it.

Enjoy!
