I can't quite navigate the w/s yet, but
iVY, when I get a sugar craving I chew s/f gun. It counts as a sweet treat
MICHELE, as I'm on phase 1 AGAIN the only things I can think of are black bean(I have a recipe if you would like) minestrone ( no pasta)
rOSE again, I thank you for your help. I guess I never really thought about measuring out my veg to make sure I had enough
Thanks to everyone for their input I'm down 5 lbs today. I know, I know it's water(but it was so nice to see the scale)

Hmmm, I put them in vegetables or the bean allotment in my mind, depending on all the ingredients. When I make bean soups, I include a fair amount of veggies in the mix. The pea/beany soups have a fair amount of protein, so I'm aware of that.

You can ease into phase 2. You don't have to add fruit, you can add a starchier vegetable at first. My first additions were a small sweet potato, winter squash, blueberries in my yogurt, a small apple with peanut butter. and steel cut oats. (Not on the same day!) I would blow up like a balloon if I added things like the book says, so much, so quickly. Many people don't tolerate grains very well and just don't add much back, if any.

I have pork with soy/BBQ sauce in the crock today. Going to fry cucumbers to make a faux apple topping to put on in. Plan on celery sticks and nut butter for snacking while we watch the hockey game.

Sophie I would love the black bean recipe. Thanks!

I love bean/vegie soups Rose. I seem to be tolerating some starchy vegies/soups better than the addition of grains lately so I'm going with it.

Any of those! Just watch the portion sizes until Phase 2. Glad to see you here *hugs*

Congratulations! I agree with Rose, ease into it. It's easier to manager how much and what you can eat when you know exactly which foods are setting you back either b/c of cravings, bloat or weight gain.

sophie's recipe is nice n easy.

I hope everyone who is new has found Kalyn's Kitchen.. her Black Bean Chili with Avocado Salsa is fantastic. I also love her Autumn Harvest Soup, Turkey Barley, Cannellini Bean and Sausage Stew with Tomatoes and Basil.. I make these all the time and keep portions in my freezer.

I made Rachel Ray's Southwest Turkey Burgers last night with roasted sweet potato and sauteed cabbage in some butter.. it's so good but a bit messy to put together but it's great over salad with extra hot sauce.

I'm making chicken terriyaki with some veggies and brown rice.

Well, last nights dinner out didn't go quite as well as I had planned. I never realized it would dried cranberries in the salad, and I had one wine spritzer. But today is a new day and so far I've had
Breakfast
One flax muffin
One cup of almond milk
Snack
Orange pepper
Lunch
Two breakfast quiches (recipe from the book)
Snack
Probably some almonds
Dinner
Grilled chicken breast stuffed with red peppers and mozzarella cheese
String beans with garlic and oil
And I'm done for the day
Glitter, those burgers sound delicious!
I'm not very good at managing portion sizes, so I definitely need to be careful, too

Have a great rest of the day ladies and I'll talk to you soon

I wish my husband liked cheese, I love to stuff anything with it. Sounds so good!

Which flax muffin recipe are you using? Be mindful that if you have a flax muffin, you shouldn't be having nuts for a snack. The allowed foods list specifies 3TBSP/1oz of flax is a serving of nuts/seeds.

I had eggs, turkey sausage, spinach and a slice of whole grain toast for breakfast..
I'm having chicken terriyaki for lunch with leftover cabbage and sweet potato.
Dinner tonight will be some parmesan crusted tilapia (parmesan, paprika, parsley mix) for dinner with sugar snap peas and some brown rice.

f
FLAX MUFFIN
1/4 c flaxseed meal
1/4 c egg sub
Dash of baking powder
Splenda pkt
Torani s/f of choice

Mix all in large cup and mike on high for 1 minute
EAT IMMEDIATELY or else it will shrivel up-still edible, just not too great!!

The muffin calls for flax MEAL, which does measure out to 3 tbs.(whew). If I were to use seed, I'm sure I would be way over the allotment
I guess I didn't realize that I shouldn't be adding any more nuts to my day
Thanks Glitter!! The tilapia sounds great. I usually do a parm crust on my chicken....
On the menu next week

Good morning SBers!!

Last week's business trip turned out to be horrible in terms of eating. Four days of conference room meals, with very little choice. sigh...

In any case, I am home all week and plan to have my nose to the grindstone in terms of clean eating!!

I'll post some meal ideas for the New Year when I get a bit of free time. I've been going through some old recipes so I can shake things up a bit -especially in terms of dinners.

Last night I made a very easy White Bean Soup, to which I added cooked turkey breast, but would have been good vegetarian as well. It had a jar of salsa verde (green salsa made from tomatillos) added to it, which provided great flavor. I will definitely post the recipe when I get a moment. My husband loved it, and it was chock full of veggies.

Have a good day folks!!

Too bad about your trip! So I'm just wondering out loud. What would happen if someone was terribly, horribly allergic to wheat for instance. What kind of accommodation would be made in terms of group meals. I know someone who is so allergic to eggs that his throat swells shut. If you were diabetic, they would expect that you would shoot more insulin and go on your way with no problem. I'm certainly not suggesting that you should make a scene about your food needs. I'm just thinking that in this day and age there should be some awareness of differing needs, if not wants. At our state library meetings, they have begun to offer fruit and cheese along with the donuts and muffins and candy after a few of our more belligerent members voiced rather loud opinions. One small step.

Enough rambling. I need the soup recipe.

Hi ladies! I completely agree with you about having other people choose our meals. I only have to contend with my family, and that's hard enough. Although I didn't mess up too badly, i'm glad it's Monday to get back on track.
this morning for breakfast I had a quesadilla omelette (eggs veggies ham and salsa). I was running around so I just had almonds for snack
But when I got home, I made egg cup muffins with artichokes and peppers.
Tonight's dinner will consist of grilled chicken, a huge Romaine salad with peppers, and green beans with olive oil and garlic.
After dinner, I've got to have my almond milk, HOT!
I'm getting my veggies now, right Rose?!!: )

It's great when we can be in control of our own eating, welcome home. I have a quick question. I wanted to have a veggie burger with two pieces of Canadian bacon to act as a button. Is that too much protein for phase 1?

It's ok. You could wrap it it lettuce, also. That's what I'm having for lunch--a chickpea patty and tomato, wrapped in lettuce. Then my lunch veggie allotment.

Thanks again, Rose!! Keep reminding me about those veggies !!
Are the chickpea patties something you make
If so,would you mind sharing? I lost a great recipe for them and have never been able replicate them.

As I recall, the book doesn't really limit protein. The book gives a guide/suggestion to start with a 3oz portion and add a few ounces until you are full. It really helps you figure out how much your body really needs by following that suggestion. Sometimes 3oz is enough and sometimes it isn't, it's also great to see what 3oz really looks like too.

Not too bad here.. we ate out on Monday when I realized I didn't have anything leftover in the fridge from my daughter's 2nd birthday party to have for dinner.
I made a chili bar with plenty of SB friendly options. I made whole grain corn bread (didn't tell anyone it was whole grain), sweet potatoes, nitrate free hot dogs on whole grain buns, french fries, lots of cheese (full/reduced), sour cream, fresh guacamole from my vitamix, veggie tray and some melon/pineapple for fruit. I made the cake and some cake balls. The cake balls were a huge hit and helped limit the amount of 'cake' for a few guests.

I feel a bigger push to make sure I keep doing this for life. My mother told everyone she has been diagnosed a diabetic. She is on some drugs that I cannot remember even though she has told me 2x (not insulin). I am trying to get her on board with SB but til she makes the decision for herself, getting her to read food labels and make small changes. She has fallen into the trap of reading the advertising on the front of the box and not read the ingredients.

A few of us have suggested a nutritionist since her doctor hasn't even pushed for dietary changes. I am trying to give the benefit of the doubt that perhaps my Mom tells the doctor of diet changes she is making that she isn't honest about or that the doctor is going by the current recommendations. *sigh* I hope that by reaching my goal that it will inspire them.

Hello Beachers!

Busy, busy work day. I never did get a chance to check in here...

I thought I would list out some of our dinners from this week in case anyone is looking for ideas:

Oven Roasted Marinated Pork Tenderloin (Marinade was low sodium soy sauce, EVOO, juice from 1 orange, rosemary) and Cauliflower/Carrots, also roasted with salt, pepper, garlic/herb mix

Sautéed Chicken Breast with grape tomatoes and scallions, in a sauce of fresh lemon juice and chicken broth along with sautéed spinach

Home-made Ground Turkey and Spinach Meatballs and home-made Marinara Sauce. My husband had his on a WW roll, I had mine with a side salad

Tomorrow night will be a Chicken, Broccoli, Mushroom Casserole. Love those one dish meals...

Hope everyone is having a good week!

Glitter, you know what a nutritionist is gonna tell her. Probably give her one of those ADA handouts. I was leafing through a new diabetic cookbook that we got in a few days ago; I almost cried.

Wiz, I love seeing your menus. It sounds so yummy. What do you do for lunch? I wish I could rekindle interest in food.

My DH is down 5 pounds now and had to adjust his belt in a hole!! He is very pleased. So even if the lower fats and increased veggies aren't really changing anything for his heart they sure are helping him drop some pounds and feel good.

I am baking him fish in lemon sauce for supper and vinegrett coleslaw to go with it. So far it is no trouble at all to keep my carbs a little lower than his and just add a little fat to my portions. We are both happy with our new way of eating.

Wiz, I love seeing your menus. It sounds so yummy. What do you do for lunch? I wish I could rekindle interest in food.
Rose, I pretty much eat big leafy green salads for lunch every day, usually along with some leftover protein. I love doctoring them up with balsamic roasted peppers, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, freshly grated parm cheese, etc. And of course, always with home made dressing!
