DD Go To Menu

OK, what's your DD go to menu? Carly says she has one and I know others do as well. I use a frozen "something" but am thinking that the volumizing approach would be good, i.e., large salad with protein mixed in would be lower calories and bigger reward. What about some taco meat mixed in to shredded lettuce, tomato slice and some fat free cheese plus fat free dressing?

That sounds good Suze. I've never been great at controlling my amount of taco meat, but I love to put chunked up deli ham or turkey on a green salad.

I've recently found Orowheat WW sandwich thins. TThey are 100 calories for one "roll". They really satisfy and fill me up, and I make tuna w/mustard, or deli meat with mustard sandwiches. A slice or two of crispy fresh lettuce in there and it's delicious!

I usually try to fast until dinner but some DDs I will eat a slice of crustless quiche for breakfast (you can make them with a lot of veggies to fill you up) and then a big salad with 4 oz of grilled chicken for dinner. Lunch would be just water, iced tea or coffee.

I love to make pizza using the Joseph's pitas. I cut them in half so they are nice and thin and then I get 2 pizzas!! Those products are really awesome, aren't they? I sometimes cut them into triangles and make pita chips.
I have not tried the flatbread yet but I'll see if my store has it.

Kismit - Yes, my favorite product of late! That's just as good for pizza the way you're doing it with the pitas. But I think the flatbread just looks bigger. Gram wise it's not. You can cut it in triangles too, spray butter and salt on them for chips or sugar and cinnamon for something sweet. I'm so jazzed about them - so much bulk for so few calories. I feel like it's an UD when I eat them on all my DDs. They're in the deli section at Walmart, so a lot of people don't know about them. They're use to breads being in the bread aisle!

Yeah, they are near the deli at my store also. I have tried the mini pitas too and they are the perfect size for a hamburger if you want to cut out the bun. I have gotten used to no bun though so lately I have not bought them.

This has been working for me lately:

Breakfast: 1/2 cup "egg beaters", scrambled, 3 light sausages (approx 160 calories)
(sometimes 1 real egg + 1/4 cup EB + sausages for about 200 calories)
(or eggs, spinach, and 1/4 cup cottage cheese in a low-carb wrap)

Lunch (sometimes divided into 2 or 3 snacks):
2-3 oz ham (35 ca/oz)
1 mozzarella cheese stick (50-70 cal) or 2-3 Aldi knock-off Laughing Cow wedges (25 cal each)
optional: 2-3 pop cakes (15 cal each) or 1 sandwich thin (Aldi brand, 90 cal)

I've been spreading the cheese wedges on the popcakes & adding 3 thin slices of ham (1oz) for 75-calorie "sandwiches", but yesterday I just had the cheese stick + 2oz ham for lunch (140 calories) and didn't eat anything else for about 7 hours!!!


Dinner:
Can of soup + one zucchini, grated & cooked, to make it more filling.
Or soup made from grated zucchini, Rotel tomatoes, canned chicken and Better Than Bouillon.

If I try to fit in a lot of variation and "interesting" foods I end up with too many calories and spend more time thinking about food than I'd like. "Treats" like non-fat yogurt & fudgesicles just make me want cookies & cake. Making lower-calorie versions of stir-fries, burritos, quiches, etc takes too much effort & math when I can just wait til the next day to have it the way I really like it.

So I mostly just eat eggs, ham, chicken, and zucchini!

I've also been taking a few liver pills a day (4=28 calories, 6.4g protein).
I make a big batch of Jell-O with chia seeds every week, and if I eat a serving the night before a DD, I experience less hunger.

Thank you for all the great ideas!

I am still trying to sort out regular staples for DDs. I did find small salads at Costco. It's a brand called FiveStar and there are a lot of different flavors.

The two in my fridge right now are Santa Fe style with chicken (260 calories) and chicken caesar (290 calories). The salads include everything, even an almost normal portion of dressing (I tend to use a lot of dressing during UDs).

It is something quick, just in case, so I don't reach for other stuff.

Most DDs I fast till a bedtime snack around 9pm. I usually make a big salad which equals about 70-75 calories (Lettuce, Cucumber, Celery, Pickles and half a hard boiled egg with a vinegar dressing that I posted on the DD recipe thread.

I always have 80 calorie yogurts on hand in case I'm still hungry.

Throughout the day I drink coffee. Sometimes I treat myself to a skinny vanilla latte.

I usually stick with a salad for lunch and then like librarygirl just a smaller portion of whatever food is on hand or my big go to is Las Palmas green chili sauce. It's 25 calories per 1/4 cup so I'll pour a can in a sauce pan with some browned ground turkey and eat it like soup.

I've been doing this a lot lately:

30 - 1/2 Joseph's pita toasted
10 - stuffed w/favorite salad greens (kale, celery, romaine, tomatoes, sprouts, radishes, red bell pepper)
0 - rice vinegar and stevia.

You know - you can eat 8 of these on a DD day and still be at 320 calories!
I make a huge bowl of the salad in the morning to make it easy.

On days I get tired of the pitas, I've been eating 2 of these:
Pizza - Bake 450 degrees for about 15 min.
100 - Joseph's flax, oat bran....Lavash flatbread 9"x11"
30 - 1/4 c. pizza sauce
33 - top w/ fav veggies: mushrooms, grn pepper, tomatoes, fresh basil leaves

I searched my Wal-mart for the Joseph's lavash and pitas. Nope, not available. I went to the Joseph's site and did the store locator for anywhere within 500 miles. Nope, not available. Rats. I refuse to order them.

Dawn, do you have the Paderno? I've had it in my shopping cart "to buy later" for months and months, and haven't actually hit "buy" because I am worried I won't get $35 of use out of it and because I don't know if I have room for another appliance ... but I actually LOVE zucchini, so I think this could become a DD staple. Please advise.
