I'm channeling my friend's 7-Day plan this week and giving it a whirl until Sunday.

Today's Menu (Adding calorie counts - mainly for my benefit.):

Breakfast: 3 fried eggs with 4oz. non-fat cottage cheese, some hot salsa on top (325 calories)

Lunch: Veggie Patty on whole wheat roll, 6 carrots, a dollop of low-fat ranch dressing, hot mustard onto the roll, an 3 green grapes my boss gave me.
(280 calories)

Snack: 80 Calorie Dannon (Coconut/pineapple) non-fat yogurt.

Dinner: Not sure as yet. My total calorie intake should be about 1400 to 1500 calories daily. I have over 715 calories to use for my dinner.

I thought 3 scrambled eggs with broccoli with red and green peppers sounded good. If I were still hungry I could drink a chocolate whey protein shake.

lol Lora! You are making want cottage cheese .. lol!!!! haven't had it in ages and ages!!!

I am trying to keep my food very "even keel" up until Thanksgiving as I do plan a little carbier food - but most critical for me, too many calories is quite likely - because I will not worry about how much I eat at Thanksgiving dinner since I don't have to, lol!

And I will be spending a few days with family and may need to have a few glasses of wine here and there .. more so than usual, lol!

Anyhow, that is my maintenance strategy for the coming week! Stay on the low side so that I can recover asap the following week, lol!

Today's Menu:

B: coconut nut bark

S: Peanut butter whey protein concoction

L: avocado, feta and onion on half lc pita with brussel sprouts
coconut bark

S: flax muffin and whipped cream

D: Fried eggs and cabbage

I think I have something else in mind as I don't really like AS. I was thinking of using walnuts, maple syrup, and molasses. Definitely something I could tweak!

Enjoy Dublin, Hay! I have had some good (higher carb) vegetarian meals in Temple Bar .. Dublin is way ahead of the rest of the country as far as vegetarian fare ... well, and you can usually get a nice cheese sandwich for pub grub .. I love Irish cheddar! (and crisps ... and Guinness .. and I'm a very bad example, lol!)

.. ok, now I am officially jealous, lol! We may be going in August, but finances are not looking up right now, lol!!!

My menu is on remote control until Thanksgiving ... For two reasons: PMS just hit, so I am in "irrational hunger" mode and it helps me to not think or plan food, just eat the "next" meal, helps stop me from binge eating at all!

Secondly, I know I will overeat calories over Thanksgiving and the few days following it when I will be at Mother's home, so I'd like to keep to the straight and narrow so that the damage is minimal .. kind of like my pre-vacation strategy every year!

Anyone else have a Thanksgiving strategy in place?

So I have been eating my usual menu day by day trying to keep my weight pretty low pre-Thanksgiving ... but have been filching food that I have been preparing for Thanksgiving, lol!!

In addition to my regular menu, I stole some:

Hubbard Squash that I steamed for a dish to be assembled today (I had quite the wrestling match with the beastly thing, but it it is sweet and delicious and worth the trouble:



and some Spicy Green Beans ... the recipe is very similar to the recipe Strawberry posted here Lebanese Cauliflower I make mine with hot red pepper flakes, canned crushed tomato instead of fresh and without lemon juice. Yesterday I had to actually add a few drops of liquid splenda as the crushed tomato was on the bitter side ...

More food to filch today, lol! I'll post it later! are you all cooking today too??!!

Your food and menu souds delish TADA!!! We did green bean casserole, roasted brussel spouts, and mashed cauliflower with cheese. That was my contribution to Thanksgiving. My mom in law and sis in law made the rest. I was so full from what I brought didn't even touch desert! I do crave more of the hot, cheezy foods right now.

So I bought anotHer piece of that hubbard squash. Could not resist it at .69/lb .. compared to $1.69/lb for butternut squash.

The key is to microwave steam it and *then* peel it. I am planning on putting it in a crockpot tomorrow .. mashed into tomato puree, add curry powder, then broccoli, cauliflower, carrots. Cook most of the day and at the end add fried onions, peppers ad tofu.

For, DH the meateater, I take some of the crock sauce and put chicken in a pot on the stove around 5 and cook for 2 hours. At mealtime, he gets more of the veggies added to his little chicken crock - and some brown rice.

The girls and I will have it without the brown rice (they prefer it that way, lol!)

I'd like to see this thread revived. Not having a totally vegetarian day today, but we're transitioning. So far:

Breakfast--I don't tend to eat breakfast because I am not usually hungry until afternoon. I usually drink a couple of cups of coffee
Lunch--HB eggs and tomatoes with dressing

Good idea Yumi !

So far I had :
B = 2 oeufs ą la coque (soft boiled eggs ?) with a slice of LC bread
L = shirataki noodle & yogurt (not hungry...)
Snack (... got hungry !) = a little cheese w/ flax bread
D = should be shrimps but apparently some friends are having a party... we might have to go out ...

I had the most incredible, simple vegetarian snack today: cottage cheese with fresh ground pepper and a generous handful of mixed bean sprouts mixed in. Lovely and crunchy but rich and satisfying.
