Awlass: All your food looks great! You're doing a great job!

All your coffee drinks look amazing I want some!

Also loving the shrimp stir fry, i've never had baby bok choy. I've seen it at the store and i've seen people on here use it but i've never tried it. I'm curious what it tastes like...


Patricia, you and your delicious looking steaks!!! I always the way your steaks look! And I bet they taste amazing! I want one!!!!!!!!!!!

I found them today at my walmart, they had three different varities so I grabbed all of them to try. They all were 3-4 net carbs for 1 serving. Thanks for posting about them ! I hate just plain chicken so these will be great for a quick dinner with a salad

Thanks! I just use instant coffee + SF Syrup (i only have chocolate or vanilla, and anyone who wants to send me some cinnamon will be my best friend for life ) + a dash of HWC. The nutella one was by far the tastiest.. Alas I only had one packet of hazelnut coffee! Off to get some more!


Bok choy has a very delicate flavor.. To me its a cross between celery hearts and baby spinach.. Both arent as strong flavored as the full grown of their kind. Its very yummy and I just LOVE how the leaves twirl together into a little twist as you stir them Its great when my food makes me smile

Ooooooohhhh it's getting cooler here and I want one of your Nutella cappuccino's!!! I have hazelnut davinci's so maybe i'll give that a try!

Thank you for the explanation on the baby bok choy flavor. Next time I go grocery shopping i'll pick some up.

The flavor was pretty good but there wasnt much filling in them. I deffinetly think that to make them at home is alot cheaper, we could stuff them more, and we could probably drop the carbs a bit lower than the boxed kind.. Dont you think?

I agree but for something that I do not really have to cook, just heat in the toaster oven for myself (since my kids never eat what I eat and my husband works nights) I will take it.

Patricia- Your steak looks yummy, I love steak with cheese, goat, cheese, or blue cheese, gorgonzola, yum

Awlass- good idea about Wal Mart, we just got a new super Wal Mart with the grocery store in it, now I can check myself. That shrimp looks so yummy! You make my mouth water!

Protein pudding recipe:

2 oz cream cheese, softened and beaten until smooth
30g protein powder (i used EAS 100% whey chocolate)
1 T SF vanilla syrup (any flavor will work)
1 T whipped cream
water as needed, a few drops at a time!!


Mix protein powder and syrup until thoroughly mixed. It will be very thick and stringy!
Add water, a few drops at a time, and mix until smooth, but still stringy. It needs to be just thin enough to be mixable.
Stir into the cream cheese, keep mixing until completely smooth.
gently mix in whipped cream to lighten.
Chill and serve!

370 calories
5 carbs, 4 net
27g fat
28g protein


Serves 2! It is very rich

Its pretty sweet and rich. i used it for a dessert, but you might try it as a breakfast.

Sorry about the allergy. I personally know what a PITA it can be.. Both of my kids have severe food allergies. One of them is eggs.

Yummy! Tzatziki
All I need are some cucumber slices and some tzatziki and I'll be happy.

The bok choy looks delicious as well. I haven't had any in such a long time.

I like meats too, but the veggies always attract me first.

LOL thanks! Can you believe it, I got accepted into Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute in Portland Oregan when I was only 17.. Unfortunately, I didnt have the $40K they wanted to teach me how to cook... HAHA.. Guess I showed them! I dont need to be taught how to cook!!

But honestly... I have 4 blocks of frozen silken tofu, and not a clue what to do with it!! If its anything like cheeze, Im sure it will crumble once defrosted...

Here's what I did with some of the tofu...




First I tried to press alot of the water out, to make it firmer... But I was impatient and hungry, so it was still pretty soft! I marinated it in a mix of soy sauce, rice vinegar, sriracha, lime juice, garlic and onion slices.. I cooked the mature bok choy, and then fried the tofu... I carefully layered it in my bowl so that I wouldnt end up with a soy vinegar tofu scramble... It was pretty tasty and the texture was just right!

Yum, that looks so good, I love tofu stir fried with asian sauces, you can get extra firm tofu next time you need it try that, you might like the consistency better. What a shame you could not go to culinary school, but at least you have a captive audience here, I love your posts!

I think you can use it as a base for SF pudding but I have no recipe. Just sorta remember that.
