I'm going to be going "away" for a while.  A combination of driving time, camping time and most likely a hotel or two.

How to do Atkins while camping?

This afternoon:

  • hard boil a dozen eggs
  • make a list

Breakfasts:  same as home

  1. Atkins shakes (add fiber)
  2. eggs (scrambled with veggies and cheese)
  3. full fat yogurt with berries and almonds/walnuts (add fiber)
  4. eggs fried in coconut oil, with salsa, guacamole and black soybeans


  1. packets of tuna with real mayo (not low fat), celery, onion and a little curry powder
  2. egg salad with avocado instead of mayo (sounds and looks terrible, but if you like avocado, it's good)
  3. hard boiled eggs, string cheese, fruit
  4. full fat yogurt with berries and almonds/walnuts (add fiber)


  1. chicken breast wrapped in bacon and topped with mushrooms.  Wrap it in tin foil and freeze.  Put in in the fire pit (in the coals).  When done, open and top with colby cheese.
  2. cubed steak, carrots, rutabaga, onions, celery, butter (if you added potato and flour, this would be the filling for a pasty).  Wrap in tin foil and freeze.  Cook in the coals.
  3. Kosher (and low sodium) hot dogs (no nitrites).  Slit open and fill with colby cheese.
  4. on skewers over the fire:  any combination of:  steak, lamb, pork, chicken, green bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, onion, carrots, celery, pineapple chunks, broccoli

There will be one night on the road and one night in "town" - so restaurants.

I'm going with the 50-60 grams of carb per day, so fruit is on the menu for snacks.

Rarely have I wanted to go to Canada as much as I have now...that I have my passport and want to use it.

When I was a kid, we used to go there to shop.  My second date with Art, we went to Chinese restaurant in Sarnia.  It's the quickest way to Niagara Falls and Maine.  Quebec rocks.

Ah well...we're going to settle for the Upper Penninsula.  which also rocks.
