I personally go ahead and eat regular bacon, but keep it to a minimum, like once a week or so. Most mornings I have leftover steak with a couple fried eggs, or some organic chicken or turkey sausage with my eggs. I've found that some of the low carb recipes are nice, but most days I don't have much time to spend in the kitchen. I've worked out a plan for me that works with minimal preparation.
Typical day for me on atkins:
Bkfst: 4-5 oz meat/sausage and two eggs
Lunch: Big salad w/homemade olive oil vinegar dressing (just a splash of vinegar) with 8 oz meat (leftover chicken, steak, burger patty, or canned tuna) Or raw veggie slices dipped in tuna/olive oil/splash vinegar mixture.
Dinner: Small serving cooked veggies (brocolli or spinach etc.) and 5-6 oz meat (chicken, steak, baked fish, or boiled shrimp etc.) For dinners I always cook extra meat to have leftover for breakfasts and lunches throughout the week.
For snacks I have a small handful of walnuts, macadamias or pumpkin seeds. Every few days I'll have a small serving of low sugar fruit like melon or berries, usually in the evening.
Oh, and another thing, I had this leftover shrimp the other day, and mixed that in with my scrambled eggs and a teaspoon of salsa... it was delicious!!
