It's WEDNESDAY! What are you eating?
UD Cat here :)

Up Day today.

I did a little experimental Low-carb cooking and some early prep-work for Thanksgiving, because I knew that if I cook all my low-carb creations tomorrow, I will be sampling all day long and tomorrow is a down day. So, I had to change my plan several times all day long, but I managed to stay within budget for both calories and carbs, even though I tried a "fluffy biscuit" and a taste of the "pumpkin bake", both from this forum. Also I made a vegetable-based low-carb gravy and a thick vegetable stew to use as a flavor base for my low-carb stuffing. Naturally I had to try these as well, but the calories/carbs there were negligible.

DD tomorrow is going to be a bit harder. I am making all the high carb/ high calorie dishes tomorrow. They will be refrigerated and reheated on Thursday. I am not going to eat even ONE BITE of the carby crap. That's the plan!

A much needed dd for me today.
B I am having a 40c coffee.
And I plan to stay below 400c the rest of the day.

Dottie 11-23-2011 06:13 AM

DD and looking forward to it!

B: coffee w/almond milk (I count 35 calories for a cup of almond milk through the day and I count 10 cals for coffee)
D: shrimp soup (4 large shrimp cooked w/1 cup riced cauliflower, 4T rotel tomatoes, 1pk herb ox sodium free chicken packet, water and having 1/2 a low-carb pita toasted for crackers - 125 calories total:))
S: 1/2 a low-carb pita w/8 slices turkey pepperoni, 1 laughing cow cheese wedge, 1/2 a roma tomato, 1 green onion sliced and 1T pizza sauce for 131 calories - low enough I can have 2 if I'm hungry:)
Snack if needed: herb ox sodium free boullion -beef or chicken(10 cals)

APprox 312 cals; 26g carbs; 10g fiber for the day

mttemple4 11-23-2011 06:13 AM

DD here. Still trying to work the down days (this is my third) WITH breakfast. It seems that not many here do that and I can see why, but I really do wake up hungry and always have. :dunno:

B: scrambled egg, one teaspoon coconut oil
L: Hebrew National dog, low carb tortilla (have been wheat free for a while so we'll see what happens :laugh:)
D: pork chop, romaine, blue cheese, sugar free jello

I had a hard time sleeping last DD and woke up all night long, so I'm definitely trying to push as many calories as possible to dinner time. Oh, and not stay up until 1am working at the computer. lol

525 calories

Dottie 11-23-2011 06:16 AM

mtt: google "egg white omelets" or "egg substitute omelets" there are loads of low-cal recipes out there for filling omelets:) I have just never been a breakfast eater.

handbells 11-23-2011 06:24 AM

DD here (so looking forward to my UD tomorrow!)

Honestly, I'm not feeling all that well today. Very snotty. Had some issues this morning. I think I may have some salad shrimp later with (if I'm feeling up to it) some salad. Not really sure yet. Glad it's a DD though!

Piccina 11-23-2011 07:33 AM

DD for me again because I messed up my DD yesterday and it turned into an UD. :S

I don't even have Thanksgiving as an excuse, I just messed up LOL. Our thanksgiving is in early October! Earlier harvest, I guess? Anyway... do you have a recipe for that 176 calorie egg drop soup??

mttemple4 11-23-2011 08:03 AM

Thank you, Dottie! On my first DD I did one whole egg + 2 egg whites and some spinach. That seemed to work well too. I will search for more options, though! :)

vilanteira 11-23-2011 08:05 AM

UD here. (We're celebrating Thanksgiving on Friday)

B: bacon
L: probably going to Chipotle
D: still working on that homemade crustless pizza :laugh:

Should be around 1500-1600 calories total.

Here's my standard, although I vary the veggies with what I've got on hand:

Swanson's low sodium broth can, 30 calories
one whole egg + 3 whites, 125 calories
one teaspoon grated ginger, 2 calories
one clove garlic, 4 calories (omit if you don't like, trying to avoid a cold)
1/2 cub shredded cabbage, 9 calories
And I top with 4 Tablespoons chopped scallions (the tops), 6 calories.

I like to add a Tablespoon apple cider vinegar and some red chili pepper flakes after it's cooked, makes it taste more like hot & sour soup.

Yesterday I realized I screwed up my eating schedule for the week, but I thought I needed today to be an UD since my Mom and I were going shopping - now the shopping's been moved to Sat.

So I had a DD yesterday and today is an UD. I'm still going to make tomorrow a FD, then go back to a DD on Friday.

DH is taking me out Friday night for our anniversary (which is actually on Sunday, lol, but Fri's the best time for us to go out), so I'm going to save up most of my calories until evening so I can have some lower cal stuff at Red Lobster, like the shrimp cocktail and the broiled seafood platter. :)

kel7298 11-23-2011 09:13 AM

DD for me
B - black coffee
L - salad
D - unknown

Kissa 11-23-2011 09:30 AM

UD for me. 2 soya lattes, 1 Marmite cheese bite, 5 Nando's chicken wings, 1/2 a green salad and 1/2 a coleslaw, .25 of a serving of fries. Out tonight again with 800 calories to spare. Got to love an UD.

sophiethecat 11-23-2011 10:06 AM

Ahh, just had a bowl of creamy clam chowder and 2 slices Nickell lowcal bread spread with a LC garlic & herb wedge.

Later I'm going to bake cookies and I'm sure I'll be sampling those.

avecrain 11-23-2011 11:37 AM

Mixed Up Day for me:

B: Pickled herring and sardines with cream cheese and crackers, tea
(I try to have fish for breakfast a couple times per month)
L: Steak...I would like some steamed broccoli but I don't have any and am a bit afraid of going to the supermarket today!!!

Then DD starts through about 5pm tomorrow...my son and I celebrate holidays with his grandfather; we've lost some family members in the last few years and the rest live out of state; it's just the 3 of us now and both of them are vegetarian, so we decided we'd go out for Indian food this year! We're really, really looking forward to it!!!

Beeb 11-23-2011 01:46 PM

DD and cooking for the Holiday tomorrow so I'm keeping busy and NOT eating! :up: I am also keeping way below my 800 DD cals in prep for my eating tomorrow! ;)

B...Eggbeater omelet with onions and mushrooms

L...Deli Ham and Turkey w/wedge of LC cheese, rolled up and dipped in Chinese mustard! SO hot and so good!! :yummy:

D...Pizza made from a LC/LC Flat Out flatbread with 9 slices of turkey pepperoni, 1/2 cup FF mozza cheese, 1/2 cup Beeb's tomato sauce, garlic and spices

S...1 slice of bread with some Beeb's tomato sauce on top. Beeb's LCal pumpkin pie, a tiny bit of canned whipped cream and FF 1/2 & 1/2 throughout the day for coffee/tea.

Total.....556 Calories - 43 Carbs.

sophiethecat 11-23-2011 01:49 PM

Mmm, those Chocolate Mint cookies were amazing! I also had a small piece of my fruit cake earlier, and finished the box of Hot Tamales. There were about 8 left in the box. Guess I'm into the sugar today, but at least I made the Hot Tamales last about two weeks! Before JUDDD, the whole big box would have been gone in one or two sittings.

Dottie 11-23-2011 02:04 PM

Oh Jenny! I haven't had pickled or creamed herring in ages. Must have some now! lol:)

julietcc 11-23-2011 02:31 PM

DD for me.

B: Coffee with half and half and a string cheese - 160
L: 2 pieces of sara lee delightful toast with margarine - 140
D: 1 can Progresso Light clam chowder - 200

I'll probably stop there at 500.

YAY! Glad I reminded you!
It's such a nice thing to have on hand...will keep for quite a long time in the fridge. Years ago, my family shared a kitchen with our German landlord, and he often had pickled herring in cream, rye toast, a soft-boiled egg, and tea for breakfast...actually, maybe it was every day!

It's one of my favorites when I have time for a big, leisurely breakfast. :yummy:

Kissa 11-23-2011 04:02 PM

Good eating here Juddders.

I finished my UD with some moules and frites and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

Just under my calorie allowance for the day. :)

sophiethecat 11-23-2011 04:16 PM

I don't want to be a bad influence, except to say I'm having two FD in a row - today and tomorrow. Then I'm back to being good for another month. :aprayer: Promise. :cool:

paulabob 11-23-2011 05:09 PM

Ugh, today has turned out more like a MD. I can see my weight is up...that sugar yesterday just took its own sweet time about packing on the water weight.

Well, I'm not going to let whatever weight shows up tomorrow affect Thanksgiving.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 06:49 AM.
