Michele I treat the Lavash bread as I would a piece of regular bread for french toast. Dip it in an egg mixture and then fry it up. Haven't made that for quite a while.

Friday: coffee
Veggie omelet, piece of rye toast
fruit w cottage cheese
pizza, salad, wine
Snack: few peanuts, CF diet soda

Thanks, Loretta - I stopped in to Walmart yesterday and found some lavash bread. I hadn't had it in a long time, as when Netrition mails it, it doesn't do well due to the heat. Anyway, I'm going to try the French toast recipe tomorrow.

Saturday:

B: small handful granola, iced coffee
snack: cheddar stick
L: turkey/cheddar roll ups, SF iced tea
snack: mocha ice pop
D: LC orange chicken, broccoli, diet tonic
snack: SF jello w/squirt wh crm

Michele, how do you make your orange chicken please?

That French toast that Loretta makes looks like a keeper too.
Is that Lavash bread like thin bread sticks?

B: 1 Dukan pancake w sprinkle of splenda and cinnamon

L: cubes of cheddar, ham slices, tiny thin rice crackers 6

D: Grilled Salmon topped with drops of Thia Red Sauce, garlic n black pepper, stir fry assorted veggies

PM: may have a low calorie popsicle, or strawberries and squirt of whipped cream

Susan, This is the link to the lavash bread, so you can see what it looks like - Joseph's Middle East Bakery Lavash Bread

Here's the recipe I found on line for the orange chicken:

Makes 4 servings - 6 net carbs per serving

Recipe Ingredients:

2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 Tbl cornstarch
1/4 cup coconut flour
salt and pepper
3 Tbl coconut oil

For the sauce:
1 Tbl ginger, chopped
1/4 cup orange juice
2 Tbl fish sauce
2 Tbl GF soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp orange extract
2 tsp splenda
1 cup water
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 Tbl orange zest
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp sesame seeds
2 Tbl scallions, chopped

- Chop the chicken thighs into bite sized pieces.
- Combine the cornstarch and coconut flour in a medium sized bowl and season
with salt & pepper.
- Add the chicken to the flour mixture and toss well until fully coated.
- Heat coconut oil in a large saute pan. Cook the chicken until golden brown and no
longer pink. Remove the chicken to a plate or bowl.
- Meanwhile, combine the ginger, orange juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, orange
extract, sweetener, water, and coriander in a blender – blend until smooth.
- Pour into a saute pan and cook until reduced by half. Add the chicken back to the
sauce and stir to coat.
- Cook for about two minutes and then add the orange zest, sesame seeds, red
pepper flakes and scallions. Cook for another minute, then remove from the heat
and serve garnished with more orange zest if preferred.

Enjoy!
