Lo-Carb is a lifestyle I am currently embracing which brings significant challenges when I travel. I have been learning that even when faced with few dinner options, with a little creativity I can still keep my meals Lo-Carb.
I ordered Duck Wings as a pre dinner snack. I realized that I made a couple of mistakes in my ordering when the cloche was removed from my appetizer. I was so hungry that I just scarfed down one of the wings. After I took a few deep breaths, I pushed the plate away because I feared that the wings were breaded which is a ketosis no-no. Fortunately, after further inspection, I realized it was just the crispy skin of the duck wings which provided the wonderfully guilty feeling crunch. On the other hand, I completely forgot to ask them to omit the fries. They smelled and looked so good, and were topped with fried rosemary to further lure me in. My willpower did prevail as I moved the duck wings to a plate sans fries and put cloche-er to temptation.
A burger is pretty much a staple restaurant item you can get almost anywhere, and hotel room service is no exception. I have found that a burger without the bun can be quite satisfying and fill my protein void without jeopardizing an increased carb count. I did remember to ask them to substitute the fries for a veggie and the garlic beans they sent along were quite tasty. I do really miss eating bread products and a chewy burger bun is no exception. Usually after I try the other things on the plate, the bun becomes the least appetizing thing on the plate
