We did some shopping for LCHF-food in the US. It’s possible, but you really have to look carefully. Full fat cheese is hard to find for example.
The groceries above turned into two lovely breakfasts:
Scrambled eggs, bacon and tomatoes. And coffee with heavy cream. Of course there’s just heavy cream for the blueberries as well.
The blueberries has around 6 grams of sugar per 100 grams, so this is not super-strict LCHF. But as I’m not too carbohydrate sensitive it’s absolutely worth it – they taste really good with cream.
By the time we left the motel there were just some saturated fat left. We left it as a LCHF-gift for the next guests:
In a restaurant
In a real restaurant (as opposed to at McDonald’s) it’s of course easy to eat LCHF-food. Meat and fish dishes with vegetables aren’t hard to find.
You may need to ask for extra butter on the side though (and risk a confused gaze from the waiter). Usually there wasn’t much in the way of sauce with the meals, just the meat and vegetables. Probably another consequence of the severe fat phobia.
Here’s a nice exception, the most delicious meal I had in the entire trip:
Two lobster tails with melted butter and a nice glass of dry white wine… LCHF hardly gets any better than this.
What’s your favorite LCHF-meal?
Soon on this blog: some examples of the “industrial foodlike products” we did not buy in the stores.
