Low-Carb basic menu

This is the basic menu structure i plan to adhere to Monday-Friday:

Breakfast options: 
-eggs, any style (hardboiled, fried/scrambled in butter, omelet with spinach and cheese, etc), OR
-low-carb protein shake
-coffee with heavy whipping cream, coconut oil, and splenda

Lunch options:
-6-8 ounces meat (roast chicken, steak, ground meat or fish), 1-2 cups of green veggies sauteed or roasted in butter or olive oil (zucchini, spinach, squash, broccoli, cauliflower), OR
-vegetable salad (lettuce, onion, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, a few tomatoes) with added meat (chicken or salmon) and fatty stuff (dressing, cheddar cheese, bacon, chopped eggs)<-----[looking forward to this the most], OR
-tuna or egg salad made with mayo and served on a bed of greens
-bunless burger with a side salad

Dinner options:
-same as lunch

Snack/dessert options:
-hardboiled eggs
-cut up raw veggies (celery, cucumbers, peppers) with ranch
-tuna/egg salad
-sugar free jello
-sugar free hot chocolate

I plan to look up 1-2 recipes from Low Carb Friends to try each week, to keep things fresh and exciting. One thing I'm NOT into is all the low-carb processed foods and "substitute" foods. I want to try and stick to non-processed foods as often as possible, without the crutch of using franken-foods all the time to try and fool my tastebuds.
