Low(ish) Carb DD Staples

Some of us have discovered that we do better with more fat and protein on DD, (even though this ups the calories, it's worth it to us because we are more satisfied). So I thought we could list food items that we eat on DD, or even recipes.

Here are some of mine:

Hard-boiled eggs & Deviled Eggs.
I like to make fast and easy deviled eggs by slicing hb eggs in half and topping each half with some mayo, mustard, and black pepper. If you like things spicy, some cayenne powder or hot pepper sauce would be good on it too. Approximately 90 - 120 calories per "deviled egg", depending on the size of the egg, how much mayo and what kind of mayo.

Savory snack plate. I like to eat slowly from items on a plate, such as olives, ham or turkey slices wrapped around Laughing Cow or a little regular cheese or cream cheese, mixed giardinara (spicy, crunchy, pickled veggies), etc. You mix and match what's on the plate depending on what you have, but some other items are slices of pepperoni, bacon slice cut into pieces, deviled egg, cubes of cheese, sauerkraut, (I like savory, spicy, salty, and pickled stuff together since I was a kid), crackers, bits of good bread with evoo, etc. Of course, you have to adjust for the calories in whatever you have. Nibble on any combination of these things or whatever else you like, and it can be very satisfying and take a while to eat.

Salmon. Walmart sells Great Value bags of individually-wrapped salmon. They are 100 calories per serving.

Wasa Light Rye crackers & "toppings". I'd never had these before, but picked them up at Big Lots since they were crackers made from three things: whole grain rye flour, water, salt. I spread full-fat cream cheese over them and some ham and olives, but the toppings could be almost endless. 60 calories for 2 of the crackers, with 11 net carbs from 3 g. fiber (not that I count carbs anymore, but for anyone interested). No sugar, 2 g. protein, no fat.

This is a great thread! I could always use more low carb DD food ideas!

Eggs are excellent, as they usually fill me up for a really long time. Bacon too. I have bacon almost every DD. I also find that baked items made from almond flour are very filling. I make low carb muffins from almond flour and one will fill me up as much as eggs and bacon.

I frequently make room on DDs to have a piece of fatty-ish meat for dinner (or if it's not fatty enough, I'll add some cheese), since that's what usually does it to satisfy my hunger until I go to sleep. Canned tuna/salmon with melted cheese works too.

Good ideas. I'm a total cracker person. I really like the easy deviled eggs. I bet they taste just as good without the work of mashing the mayo, mustard, and pepper in a bowl!

I add 2 tablespoons of light cream (55-60 calories) to 2 cups of chicken broth (I use bouillon cubes or paste).

Sometimes I have this 2 or 3 times a day...it's so much tastier and more satisfying than plain broth!!!

I boil up a bunch of minced celery and keep that on hand in the fridge/freezer...that way I can add everything to my big mug and just add boiling water without dirtying a pan.

Grated (cooked) zucchini is nice too...it "feels" like noodles.

Check Lean Cuisine. There are 2 or 3 of their frozen dinners that have 200 cals or less. The steak tips with portabello mushrooms and broccoli is 170. There are a few chicken ones as well. Not the best choice, but in a pinch and paired with a salad and no-cal dressing, a complete meal
I keep very lean sirloin steak in 3.5oz portions frozen as well (Lauras Lean brand is 128 cals for 3.5oz).

It's not fat that helps me on a DD but protein. I have always focused on protein (affirmed by consulting Dr. Eades about this), and my staple is fish and egg whites.

I have either pouches of tuna and salmon for about 70-90 cal, and I make egg white "omelets" in a soup mug in the microwave for 50 cal each. I sometimes use fish filets when they're on sale. My supermarket has been having frozen tilapia on sale for a while, and I can get 20g of protein from a 100cal portion. If I eat 350 cal, I aim for 50g of protein for the day.

One thing that has always been satisfying if I'm hungry in the late afternoon is a mug of hot chicken broth (I make my own and freeze in portion sizes) with ACV and hot sauce. It may sound awful, but it's like hot/sour soup in flavor and it has always been totally satisfying for about 25 cal.

I love hot and sour soup and that sounds delish! I bet it would be good with some egg whites stirred in.

Yes, I've had it with egg whites stirred in, and it's good that way, too. It really is very satisfying, and now that the weather is getting cold here, I'll probably have it more often in the late afternoon.

I'm unusual with JUDDD because I'm mainly a morning eater and have most of my DD calories with breakfast. But since the high protein keeps me satiated, I am rarely hungry later on. This broth helps if I want something.

Leo, it took me a while on JUDDD to realize that I needed higher protein too on DD, to feel satisfied. I would ideally get a minimum 15 g. protein per each DD meal, but 20 g. and up worked the best to keep me satisfied. Thanks for your suggestions!

Thanks Everyone, for the ideas, and keep em coming

I love to do small amounts of a lot of different flavors! So I'm not so weird after all! I also eat a LOT of egg beates/egg whites on DD day because ounce per calories it's the least calorie protein (except maybe shrimp?). I don't know because I'm kinda new at counting calories as I had been on LC for 4-5 years!!! I'm finding counting interesting and I use my smartphone's calculator because even when it is off and I turn it back on it keeps my calculations until I erase them. So I start the day on my calculator with 600 cal or my UDs1700 and deduct from there that way I know exactly how many I have left for the day.

Add me to the group that enjoys a nice Snack tray of nibbles as a portion of my DD calories. I usually have snacks in the evening, and a nice tray of varied offerings is fun. I always include hard egg whites, cold meat and some 1/2" cheese cubes, maybe a few slices of apple and melon, and tons of veggie chunks with something to dip in. I feel like it helps me continue my *fasting*, but at the same time feel like I'm being treated and pampered.

I wanted to add a link this thread: Cabbage, laughing cow cheese and chicken because this is an amazingly filling, easy dish for DD.

The way I did it was very much like our family's favorite fried rice recipe but without the rice, lol.

You can make this dish any way you like and with whatever low cal proteins you have on hand - fish, shrimp, chicken, egg whites (stirred in they just get blended up with the cabbage and you hardly know its there) etc.

Buy the "coleslaw mix" so you already have shredded cabbage in a bag to dump in the skillet. I think the whole bag is like, 90 calories.

My go to DD meal is a tuna pouch with a couple of HB egg whites and a couple of T of light sour cream and a splash of ACV over mixed lettuce greens or spinach.
I stock up on tuna pouches and eggs. Also tilapia in individual servings for at home meals.
I also find that protein is what works best for me to get me through a DD.

I bought the natures own light wheat bread and it's 45 calories and 2g fiber per slice. Thin slices, but good sized.
Then I noticed their double fiber one: 50cals, 5 fiber and thick, regular slices.
I think for 10cals more for 2 slices, it's a better option for the times I want bread. And it's one that DH will eat, too, so I won't be throwing 3/4 of the loaf away because I didn't eat it.

I've been eating smoked salmon smeared with a small amount of cream cheese (I use the full-fat kind, it works better for me) for lunch and then a chicken-based stir-fry for dinner. My last last DD dinner was chicken with low-calorie veggies and peas "creamed" with a few tablespoons of cream of mushroom soup. It was really good and very satisfying for about 250 calories.

Kitchens of India brand curry pastes. These come as a box of 4 servings per box and range from 50-70 cals per serving.
You simmer your protein (fish and chicken both work great, or lean beef) with the paste and water for about 20 minutes and it's really good.
Oh I forgot: the butter chicken as an example is only 480mg sodium, too.

I also recommend curry pastes. I don't use the Kitchens of India brand, but another that comes in a jar I keep in my fridge. I heat up some onions in a little bit of oil in a pan, then my protein, then whatever frozen veg I want (often cauliflower, which takes curry very well), then add some curry paste and water. Simple, fast, very low calorie, and very tasty. YUM!

I always just freeze the loaf and take out a slice (or two) at a time. It really freezes well!
