14-Day Atkins Meal Plan: Day 9
The Atkins diet is one of the most popular and debated low-carb diets, especially effective if your aim is to lose weight. The theory behind it is that you can eat as much protein and fats as you like, as long as you stay away from high-carb foods. That being said, our meal plan is for Atkins 40, which, as the name suggests, limits the carb intake to 40 grams a day.
Kathleen’s Cottage Pancakes (3 pancakes) with 1-2 Tbsp sugar-free syrup, such as maple flavored monkfruit syrup – 280 kcal
4 turkey sausage breakfast links – 130 kcal
Tossed salad with 85g smoked/cooked salmon, 60g arugula, 30g sliced bell pepper, 15g pine nuts and 15g shredded asiago cheese, dressed with 2 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp champagne vinegar – 463 kcal
2 hard boiled eggs and 6 green olives – 187 kcal
Baked poblano pepper halves (2) each stuffed with 60g cooked ground beef and 15g shredded Mexican cheese blend, topped with 30g fresh salsa – 459 kcal

After trying these deliciously tender low-carb pancakes, you may never be tempted by a regular pancake again. So good, and packed with protein to get your day started right. Lunch is definitely the nutritional breadwinner though, no pun intended — a salad bowl full of just about everything your body needs, and also quite tasty by the way. Finally, your dinner tonight is a simple stuffed pepper. The poblano will bring a little heat, but feel free to amp it up by choosing a hot salsa if that’s your thing.
