Are flax crackers the Atkins ones that I have seen in the stores? I picked up a box and it seemed very low carb. (was in Dutch and wasn't sure I was reading it okay) Is it okay to have those?
Saves some money too.
Breakfast was a berry "mousse" which was some ricotta, a dollop of marscapone, blueberries, a few raspberries and a strawberry with a couple drops of lemon extract all whipped up in the Magic Bullet blender.
Lunch was a mozzarella cheese crust pepperoni pizza with 2 TBS of leftover arriabatta sauce spread on the top while it was cooking. Garden salad with Italian dressing on the side.
Dinner was baked pecan crusted haddock (cream/Dijon mustard wash + pecan meal coating) and steamed asparagus.

And you can grind it in a coffee grinder.
I noticed you were talking in your journal about sandwiches. Here's what I did with flax crackers (my breakfast yesterday and today):
That's a flax cracker, with pesto, chevre and oven-dried tomatoes with a bunch of spices on them.
I couldn't find Atkins Flax Crackers online, but most of the other Atkins products for which I found ingredients listed include wheat, so would not be 'legal' till the 9th rung.

I had mixed nuts (pistachios, almonds and hazelnuts) for a snack at the office.
Well...I was up most of the night with a nasty stomach flu type thing. So today, the only thing I could stomach for breakfast was a soft boiled egg and a yogurt lassi (lassi is an Indian drink made by mixign yogurt with water until it has the consistency of milk and adding a dash of salt.) I figured the acidophilus bacteria in the yogurt will help my stomach. Lunch was chicken soup. Tonight might be more soup with a few rye crackers.

I hope you're better and got some sleep, Megs.
My breakfast was hummus on flax crackers and a hard boiled egg. And I have nuts for the office. Lunch will be an omelette with chevre and basil, and a salad with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and whatever other veggies I can find in the fridge. Dinner will be chicory gratin with bacon: When chicory found its destiny delicious:days
Been rushing at breakfast these days so have resorted to nibbling my almond flour/nut/cocoa bics (made with splenda).
Lunch today is Russian salad made by my MIL (she leaves out the potatoes even though I often tell her she can put in a small amount)... it's wonderful! Also normal salad and some bresaola (cured beef... sort of like prosciutto).
Dinner will be beef spezzatino (sort of stew), and eggplant diced and cooked with onion, garlic and of course EVOO. Raspberries and cream.
