Eating didn't quite go as planned today, too much processed stuff. I was out of eggs so had some salami and cheese for breakfast before going grocery shopping. Because I have been neglecting it, my housework took most of the afternoon and I skipped lunch. Dinner was brats and 4 slices of cucumber.

I have been feeling pretty bloated but that's because TOM is due tomorrow. The great thing is that normally my PMS symptoms are way worse. No weight gain so far this month.

Net carbs never ever worked for me. I suppose it would be good to try once I get to the maintenance phase.

I agree with you about the boxed Jell-O mix -- it's just boil water and mix. The added benefits are lovely, BUT since we are on a meat WOE, we are getting our share and OTHER peeps share of protein so we don't have to worry about getting all the amino acids we need for good health.

Americans have never been lacking getting protein, funny how Big Food companies are fortifying foods that never had protein before with protein NOW... it's the new "buzz" word for health, like oats was years ago...
You got that right no wiggle room at all! I don't mind though I can stick to it. As you said "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" I honestly love that quote.

Just sweep today under the rug and get back on plan tomorrow. I know it is hard when you start running out of foods. I just plan my meals a week ahead and that way I don't run out of something.

@ inside joke. No you really can milk your own almonds and it's de'lish. I don't think it's fussy to do, IMHO and it's just raw almonds & water. I would not do it with cheesecloth because the Nut Milk bag is so easy to use and clean afterward...

Here are a few pointers that I've learned since I started making this:

1) Originally the recipe said steep the almonds, it's not necessary, I couldn't tell the difference and it saves you time -- so I took it out.

2) Try to soak your almonds 2 days

3) Don't process more than 1/3 c of almonds at a time, it just doesn't work well if you plan to make more than 3 c of almond milk.

4) Get the Nut Milk Bag (ordered mine from Amazon) if you plan to do this more than once, it's way easier to use than cheesecloth and cleaning it afterward is a breeze.


Homemade Almond Milk

Ingredients:
1 cup (1/3 lb.) raw almonds

Honey, sugar, agave syrup, or maple syrup, to taste (optional)

Vanilla Extract, to taste (optional)

Procedure:

Place the almonds in a bowl and cover with about an inch of water. They will plump as they absorb water. Let stand, uncovered, overnight (10-12 hours) or up to 2 days. The longer the almonds soak, the creamier the almond milk.

Drain the almonds from their soaking water and rinse them thoroughly under cool running water. At this point, the almonds should feel a little squishy if you pinch them.

Place the almonds in the blender. Add 1 cup of room-temperature water to the almonds. Pulse the blender a few times to break up the almonds, then blend continuously for two minutes. The almonds should be broken down into a very fine meal and the water should be white and opaque.

(If using a food processor, process for 4 minutes total, pausing to scrape down the sides halfway through.)

Add 2 cups of room temperature water to the paste in the blender and blend until thoroughly combined. The mixture will be very frothy.

Line a strainer with either an opened nut bag or cheese cloth, and place over a measuring cup. Pour the almond mixture into the strainer.

Gather the nut bag or cheese cloth around the almond meal and twist close. Squeeze and press with clean hands to extract as much almond milk as possible. You should get about 3 cups. (See Recipe Note for what to do with the leftover almond meal.)

Taste the almond milk, and if a sweeter drink is desired, add sweetener to taste.

Add vanilla to taste, if a vanilla almond milk is desired.

Store the almond milk in sealed containers in the fridge for up to three days or freeze for longer storage.

Using the Leftover Almond Meal: The leftover almond meal can be added to oatmeal, smoothies, and muffins as it is. You can also spread it out on a baking sheet and bake it in a low oven (275-300 degrees F) until completely dry (2-3 hours). Dry almond meal can be kept frozen for several months and used in baked goods instead of flour or combined with flour.

Yield: 3 cups (24 oz)

Nutritional Information: 1 cup (8 oz) without added sweetener or vanilla

5 calories (5 from fat), 0g total fat, 0g saturated fat, 0mg cholesterol, 5mg sodium, 0g carbohydrate (0g dietary fiber, 0g sugar), 0g protein

Vanilla Extract: 1 teaspoon = 12 kcals & 0.5 carbs

Imitation Vanilla Extract with no alcohol: 1 teaspoon = 2 kcals & 0.6 carbs

Excellent point about being prepared so that you don't run out of something. We make our worse possible food choices when we're hungry.

I know that's one of the reasons why I have been successful in following A '72 is always having my "food" in the house.

Still retaining a bunch of fluid---my fingers and toes are so stiff! I'm going to try to drink plenty of fluids today and see if I can't get this water to flush out of my system!

Hope everyone has a good on plan day!

Which Would You Think is Healthier??

Things that make you go hmmmmmm....

I was having a conversation with the BF and we were discussing which of these two food items were the better choice, almonds or pork rinds... here's
the nutrition facts for 1 ounce of each:

Almonds-----Pork Rinds

Kcals-----169-----160
Fat-------14.8g----10g
Sodium---1 mg----620mg
Carbs------6g------0g
Protein-----6g-----14g

I had no idea that the almonds would have more fat, I mean I know nuts are a source of fat... but not more. What I did not include was that almonds are a source for calcium & potassium.

No I am not advocating eating almonds, not at 6g per ounce, I just thought it was interesting to see the comparison of the two. The average person would SWEAR that pork rinds have more fat...

Jo: What an interesting debate! Hmm, personally, I think I would take the almonds over the rinds and only because I would take a plant fat over the sodium any day and only cause the sodium would probably cause a gain or stall but then again animal fat is better than plant fat on Induction so at that point I would feel it's just a personal choice. It seems the pros & cons are very close so that would be a hard decision for me. Good post though.
I like when we can discuss things that make us think!

Well, holiday Monday here in Manitoba. Whoo-hoo. Gotta love that! Our "civic" holiday was just named: Terry Fox Day.

After almost 2 wks or so, finally broke 152 but only to 151! But at least it moved, eh! Have a good day everyone.

Hmm, finally found pork rinds at Walmart. They were in the Asian section (that what the sign says) and they had Asian print all over the bag. Is that the same as everyone else is buying?? They had 0 flavour and it says 5 small pcs are 1 carb. What?? How is that possible when the ingredients say pork, sea salt, salt and "may contain" MSG. May contain? So where are the carbs coming from?? Hate to admit it but it didn't take long to try one more and then one more after that! Boy, I better stay away from the flavoured ones or I think a new "chip" addiction will start!

I would have never guessed pork rinds have more protein either!

I agree 100%, being unprepared never works out in my favor. I usually end up eating out and then I'm not sure if there are hidden carbs etc.

Today is steak and eggs...was in a hurry this AM didn't pay attention to my steak over cooked it. I took 2 small fatty Delmonico sliced them up and fried them, they would be soooo good if I cooked them a minute or 2 less. They were edible just not delicious. I have more steak and 2 hard boiled eggs for lunch.

Held at 203 this AM. 3 pounds to onderland I'm hoping it happens this week.

Anyone use the sweetener truvia? I am planning on making fresh brewed ice tea, wondering if that would be a good sweetner?

Well, I read the label a while back and not only is it one of the most expensive, it's actually kind of carby for me. Truvia has a definite aftertaste, and, quite remarkably, 3 carbs per packet! JMHO.

Neener: see if you can find a small bottle of liquid stevia (I've been using Stevita...but there are several different brands. 0 carbs, 0 calories...check the label before purchasing). The liquid form incorporates into liquids easier...and a few drops go a long way. A small bottle will last you quite a long time.
Hope this helps.....

Aghh!! 3 carbs per packet that's craziness! I am glad I asked before I went rogue thinking it was a good alternative.

Thanks I will check out liquid Stevia.

Very good point about planning ahead.
HOWEVER, remember Cathy mentioned having two young men at home, ages 18 and 24. I can relate. They eat everything. For example, when my college boys are home I buy 6+ dozen eggs a week. Even so I almost panicked yesterday morning. There were exactly two eggs left. Before I opened the fridge I was telling myself not to panic. If they're gone I'll eat a piece of cheese and go to the store.

Jo,
Thank you for telling me about milking almonds! I had no idea. Now I have a bag in my amazon cart. I am going to try the silk coconut milk first since it's easier. I do love almonds!
Do you drink your foo-foo coffee every day? How often do you milk? Does it taste good without sweetener?

Hi Bonny Jean. I got mine at Walmart but in the chip section. They had several different brands but I got Rundolf's brand. Ingredients say pork rinds and salt.

They are pretty tasteless but I like the chippy texture of them.


Not sure if this is where the carbs came from but I was looking at my Season salt container and sugar is listed on it.

Oh and my bag says 0 carbs. They also had some bbq flavored ones but I was a little skeptical and concerned that some of the spices might have hidden carbs

You are so right! I do plan out Monday through Friday but the weekends are just so up in the air, I never know what we will be doing.

Yep, the boys eat everything. I had just bought 2 dozen eggs from a friend who has chickens. Both boys and my husband love fresh eggs but I was pretty surprised that they were gone in under 5 days. I have a drawer in the fridge that is mine and everyone knows to leave it alone. That's where I stash my lunch and breakfast stuff.

I woke up this morning feeling like I've been ran over. My body aches from the swimming and major housework I did this weekend. To top it off, TOM is here and I want to go back to bed. I didn't weigh this morning and might wait a couple of days before I do. I really liked when I did once a week weighs instead of daily.

I don't like Mondays.

Wow that is very shocking! Thanks for posting that it is good to know. I agree most people would say pork rinds are fattier for sure.

Yeah, that's the first place I looked?? Nothing? Looked online and they're made right here in Canada but put in the Asian section. Go figure??
I remember my Granny snacking on a bag like almost 50 yrs ago!
I believe back then a Winnipeg company called, "Old Dutch" used to make them. I think she called them "piggy curls" so they've been around a heck of a long time, eh! I still can't understand where the carb comes from?? I guess this brand might be the only thing I can get up here but maybe other places in Canada carry the other American brands. Just seems odd to me. On the other hand, maybe it's a blessing in disguise!
