DDs only - What did you eat?
 
I think it will be helpful to me to post what I eat on DDs.

I hope other people will join in.

Then we can look here for ideas when planning future DDs.

One of my favorite things to eat on a DD is some fat free greek yogurt, flavored with the SF Torani syrup of my choice (white chocolate is a favorite) and an apple. I dip the apple slices in the flavored yogurt and it's just delicious!

loves2sing 11-27-2011 12:07 PM

That sounds good, Janet. Thanks for the idea.

Janet - what brand of yogurt do you use? I like the idea of dipping in apple slices.

I use the Fat Free Fage. It's the best that I have found in my area and for a cup of yogurt, it's 130 calories.

Kelly, what kind of chili?

Chili with cheese and crackers sounds like a great DD dinner...

julietcc 11-27-2011 08:04 PM

Check out the Homestyle chili that is highlighted in our posts. I tried the beef and it's very good.

Juliet, what do you mean by "highlighted in our posts"?

Thanks,
Cynthia

julietcc 11-27-2011 08:26 PM

Do you see how the word chili is blue? If you click on it, you go to the chili page on the netrition website. It's $4.95 shipping for your entire order and they have a lot of great things!

Whenever you see a blue word on our message boards, it's a link to the netrition product.

Here's the link, too. Homestyle Fresh Chili

From the cooks.com recipe site:

SAUSAGE, EGG, HASH BROWN CASSEROLE
1 lb. sausage
9 large eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup milk
4 tablespoons melted butter
24 oz. pkg. hash browns
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350F.
Break up sausage meat and discard casings, if desired. Layer raw sausage on bottom of a well buttered 9"x13" pan. Add milk and melted butter to beaten eggs and pour over sausage.

Note: You may substitute 2 tablespoons of olive oil in place of 2 tablespoons of the butter with good results.

Add hash browns and top with shredded cheese.

Bake for one hour.

About 4 servings.

*I used sour cream instead of milk, and just mixed it into the eggs. I also added some French fried onions to it before baking. And I used frozen maple sausage patties that I partially cooked and then chopped and added to the bottom of the casserole dish. Made a lot of casserole...I had just a small serving. Tasty goodness...

I made something that came out quite yummy for dinner last night -

1 cup chopped yellow peppers
1 cup diced turkey

Brown that in a frying pan with a little water until the peppers soften up. Then add a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese and mix until melted. Serve over a cup of raw spinach.

Was so good! I figured it to about 330 calories which was great for me as an evening meal.

This sounds very yummy, Janet, and very healthy for a DD dinner. I'll be making this later in the week.

I had a very busy day today, was away from home from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

DD. So I just drank tea until 4 p.m., then I went to Boston Market and ate:

turkey breast - regular portion (180 calories)
garlicky spinach (140)
steamed veggies (60)
new potatoes (140)

Total: 520 calories

(Calorie counts from their website.)

It was a good, filling meal, relatively healthy as fast food goes... Sometimes this is the best I can do.

Smiles to all,
Cynthia

Hockey_gal, do you have recipes for the banana cream pudding & the pumpkin custard?

They sound yummy...

Thanks!

I have noticed that my jar of pickles has apparently nothing in it - no calories, no carbs, no nothing.

So, I ate several pickles last night when I got the munchies!

Mine says zero everything to. But I still limit them. Just saying I can't eat alot of them and it still be zero. I have to count something.

MintQ8 11-30-2011 12:06 PM

The salt in them may also make you retain water - so may not see an immediate loss following a DD. It's not fat - just be aware that this may happen!!!

My DD tend to involve coffee (frothy stuff out), shiratake something or other - and whatever calories I can fit in!!

I have had 295 today - it's now 8.05pm - but I may have a meringue nest for 52 calories later!! with some yoghurt - yum!!

ouizoid 11-30-2011 01:48 PM

I eat the SF sweet pickles--less salt!

hockey_gal 12-02-2011 09:31 PM

love2sing,

the banana cream was SF pie filling from a box that I just made and ate as filling :)

the pumpkin custard is beeb's pumpkin pie recipe w/o the crust. I made four mini-pumpkin pies and had a serving of just custard w/no crust left. It's on page 1 of DD receipes (the sticky thread).
