Haha, apparently they are fattening menus. I seem to go up a lb or more midweek. I was so careful to not add any extras yesterday, still up 1 1/2 lbs. We had Eldorado casserole from Linda Sue's website which consists mostly of ground beef. Had lettuce & cabbage for veggies. I think I do better w/ fish based meals even if I eat a bit of potato w/ it. Big problem is Mom wont eat fish, doesnt even like to smell it!

Heidi, I've had to cut down on fat, too. Getting older means eating less, whether I like it or not. I eat smaller portions. Three or four ounces of beef and five ounces of fish seem to be fine.

Today:
Tea and hwc.
Don't know in what order, but will have roast beef, beef bacon and eggs w/ chives, fish. Pickled cucumbers or asparagus, perhaps some celery root. Yoghurt.

Hope you all have lovely things to eat today.

Dinner was smoked salmon w/ lc bread and big salad. No time to cook yesterday. Auntie Em, I eat when I am not hungry, I graze all day & feel my best when I do. I do know exactly what I graze upon though, so maybe I can keep the lbs at bay by cutting out specific things. I gave up my bedtime snacks all week, substituting red wine. When I was losing weight I was eating more carbs than I do now. As I learned substitutions I replaced high carb food. I dont hink I need lower carb at this point. I must cut another snack item to lose these 4 lbs or so. Yes the coconut bark has to go.

Heidi, we are all so different. Some do best at higher carb levels, others need very low. I find very simple food and very low carb suits me the best.


Today: tea

Most likely:
Beef bacon and egg yolks w/ chives, bit of hwc
Roast beef and celery?, homemade yoghurt
HB yolks and brie

Power went out last night right after dinner due to storms. We had to use flashlights to do anything last nite. Had bacon quiche, Kevinpa's gr beans & cauliflower casserole, salad, bit of cabbage. I tried to be very good as I was 4 lbs over desired weight yesterday. Down a lb today. Boy, I''m getting obsessive :blush:.

Heidi, hooray for diligence. I've been thinking of getting a single burner, propane cook top, for when the power goes out. I saw a couple of nice ones, inexpensive, at the hardware store recently.

Today's food:
Black tea
B: Roast beef and celery
L: same
S: Either beef bacon and egg yolks, or wild salmon w/ pastured butter. Celery root or celery for veg.

Hope you all have a very lovely day.

I have an old Coleman single burner from the old camping days, mostly we used it for coffee. If the power hadnt come on I would have been able to have coffee cooking on the back porch. Of course water would have been hard to come by as we are on a well.

Dinner was a repeat of the day before. I love leftovers. Or rather I love not cooking every day.

Heidi, I make planned overs and often eat cold burgers or cold roast beef.

I store water in gallon jugs, and keep enough in the kitchen for cooking and drinking water for three days.

You can use water from the hot water heater for drinking and cooking if it is boiled first.

Today:
Tea w/ hwc
B: beef bacon and yolks with chives, celery, fresh lemon juice in water
L: HB eggs, cheddar cheese
S: cashews, beef broth

Auntie Em, that is good training for emergencies. I store water in gallon vinegar bottles in the basement.
Dinner Saturday was Ricotta Pie, yesterday smoked salmon, asparagus & slaw.

Heidi, I'm glad you've got water stored. The power goes out fairly often. I don't mind in the spring and fall, but AC and heat are vital when the temperatures are extreme. Have you got a generator?

Today's food, thought I'd post how much I currently eat, in case it is of use to someone:
One pot black tea, made with two teaspoons loose tea and four cups purified water.
One ounce HWC for day.
B: 90g chicken livers, cooked in two teaspoons beef fat, with chives
L: 58 g chicken livers, 1 tsp. butter. 1 ounce brie. 1/3 c. raw celery root
Sn: 2 large cups decaf coffee. 2 T. homemade yoghurt
D: 2 oz. hamburger, lemon juice in water, perhaps cucumber and yoghurt, or cheese

Auntie Em, can you direct me to the "homemade yogurt" recipe that you use? That sounds wonderful and much healthier than store bought. Especially if it's nice and thick like Greek style. MMMMM.

Auntie Em, we do have a generator but it would only power a few things.

Yesterday I made catfish fried in coconut oil w/ cornmeal & Carbquick for batter. Raised my sugar to 131 after 1 hour. I was looking to please Mom w/ the batter. It was pretty good, not any different from regular cornmeal & flour batter.

You are very good about sticking to your diet and looks like you REALLY plan everything. I am doing better, not acting like a shark this week. I want to keep shopping in the junior dept!!! :-) What a hoot after being overweight for 20 years.

Lisa, Greek style yoghurt is made with milk and then the whey is strained off. I use heavy cream. Here is the recipe I posted.

Whew, Heidi. Hope your blood sugar is normal and stable again. I have allergies and have learned more and more over the years about what I have to leave out. I like feeling as healthy and well as I can. That means eating as cleanly as I know how. I'm glad you are enjoying wearing sleek clothing.

Today's food:
One pot of tea. One ounce hwc for the day.
B: 2 slices of beef bacon, 3 egg yolks, 1 T. fresh chives
Decaf coffee w/ part of day's hwc.
L: 3.5 ounces roast beef, 2 small stalks celery, 1/3 c. homemade yoghurt
Sn: Decaf coffee w/ part of day's hwc
S: perhaps tuna fish and marinated cucumbers

Good morning everyone,
Yesterday I baked some fillets of salmon in my little toaster/oven combo. Since it gets hotter than a regular oven they were crispier & much better than regular oven baked ones. Also had asparagus, coleslaw & peas. Tried new version of 3 min chocolate cake & had a tiny piece w/ no cravings for more. Scale was going the right directions this AM. 100 grams or so carbs & no extra food of any kind seems to suit me best.

The menu today is...

B-Fiber One Original Cereal with strawberries and skim milk (1/2 C of each)
Snack (if needed)- Emerald Cocoa Roast almonds (1/4 C- the lid is the portion control- genius!)
L- Can of tuna with 1 T mayo, a Dannon diabetic-friendly yogurt (found them again- loved them years ago and I think they discontinued them for a while?), and possibly 1 cheese stick
Snack (if needed)- Hot pork rinds and a diet cream soda (LOOOOVE it)
Dinner- either a left over turkey burger with pepperjack cheese, or we will grill chicken thighs with a little BBQ sauce, plus salad with some veggies thrown on and lite Ranch or Caesar (It's Husband Will Be Grilling Season!)

I am down 2 lbs. in 2 days, so I am going to stick to this same menu every day, ha ha. The extra fiber has...helped. Let's leave it at that.

Have a great on-plan day all!
