The Joy Of Cooking
 
For years I havent looked at my lovely cook books becasue I've always been trying to do some sort of LC woe. But now I can :jumpjoy: so next week I'm making Swedish meatballs, I found a lovely recipe online I'd like to try. Such a small revelation which has made me so happy. Funny isn't it?

Oh my gosh, Majella. I've done the same thing. Cooking is my passion. Just a few days before I even knew JUDDD existed I was so weary of the foods on my low carb way of life that I decided to heck with it, one day a week I'm going to throw low carb to the wind and one day a week cook something wonderful out of Around My French Table or Zuni Cafe or A Platter of Figs or Mangoes and Curry Leaves or any of my Barefoot Contessa books. I read these beautiful cookbooks and seek out the lowest carb of the recipes but still feel guilty when I fix them. I hadn't even gotten to "the day" yet when I discovered JUDDD. I just don't believe in accidents so I believe my decision to periodically indulge in my passion and finding a way of life that embraces it was just supposed to be my path. I've been doing this now for 2 weeks, feeding my soul as well as my body and have lost 9 pounds. I cannot express how grateful I am to all you folks who write daily to encourage those of us new to this profoundly rewarding food plan.

You have just written something that is going to encourage others here too, you know.

I'm so absolutely happy to read your post here, and delighted that JUDDD is not just working for you for weight loss, but is opening up a way of dealing with meals and menus and how we can enjoy the *experience* of cooking and dining in our lives at the same time we manage our health and body weight.

So glad you discovered JUDDD and are here on the JUDDD forum with us!

Yayyy, Grace! 9 pounds in 2 weeks - WHOOO HOOO! :jumpjoy:

I love that I can use the recipes in my cookbooks too! I had just perfected my homemade pizza crust and then had to quit making it when I went on LC :cry: Now I can make it and any artisan breads I want to try :jumpjoy: (I'm not good at bread-making, but there's something about doing it every once in a while that makes me feel good).

I know what you mean, Majella. I enjoyed a wonderfully sweet crisp Honey Crisp apple today without thinking I was being naughty! I love what Pirate Jenny said. "Murder bad. Cake good."
