I am on JUDDD, but I am new here I have finally made the transition to vegetarian and I feel great about it I am working on going vegan next. I thought this would be a good place to start and find inspiration.



B- coffee and a protein shake

L- half a veggie spread sandwich ( can of loma linda little links mashed up and mixed up with veganaise, dijon mustard, and pickle relish) this could be done low carb by using lettuce instead of bread.

D- other half of my sandwich

Welcome to the forum!!

Is that all you ate for the whole day?

How are the Loma Linda links by the way? I've never tried them.
We also have a product review thread that you can post your opinion of any product you have tried and liked or disliked.

Well later on in the evening I had a salad and an apple. It does not take much to fill me up during the day. What I have to stay clear of is the late night munchies. I grab a bag of bagged salad instead of the chips now. Thank you so much for the welcome by the way it is my first one. I really like loma linda, they are a little expensive, but I buy in bulk on amazon and they last me a while. I will check out the product review thank you so much

Welcome to the forum, Erry.

Eating beans help to keep my blood sugar normal.

Today I'm cooking up some pinto beans and I don't know what else I'll have. Lately, I've been in a rut, eating the same ole same ole...guess it's time to start looking at recipes again.

I'm thinking of making some yellow squash chili to go with the beans. I found a couple of recipes online, so maybe it will turn out good.

Wednesday

I've been dabbling in intermittent fasting. In my case, skipping lunch.

B - 2 eggs, scrambled in olive oil + 1 tbsp sour cream

D - Mocha protein shake (pre workout)
Post workout -
1 serving sesame tofu
1 peanut butter protein ball
1/4 HWC + 1/2 oz Monin SF chocolate sauce

Not sure how long I'll continue to skip lunch. It's kind of neat to discover that it's okay to be hungry. I've surprised myself by NOT getting headachey or nauseated.

Yesterday I made stir fry with quorn chicken cubes and lots of veggies.
I served it over jasmine rice.
I cooked the veggies in sesame oil and that made them pretty tasty.

I used water chestnuts, whole button mushrooms, red bell pepper, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, and green onions.

I mostly like to make stir fry with broccoli, mushrooms, water chestnuts.

late S - handful of Nestles choc chips from the bag hubby opened I think I felt denied somehow after 3 days of applesauce, bananas and Kaopectate and probably craving sugar from the fruit and carbs

I'm back on Low-carb again--four days in. Cravings are almost gone.

B - Cheese stick and a scrambled egg from McDonald's.

S - Handful sunflower seeds.

L - 3 Tofurkey pickle wraps with provolone and mayo.

S - 1/4 cup spinach artichoke dip with baby bell peppers.

D - Salad with romaine, tomato, red onion, feta, avocado, and a tiny bit of blue cheese salad dressing.

Sounds like a lot of food but I'm still going through carb withdrawals. I hope I feel better tomorrow.

Hi Sherril, I was wondering what happened to you. Thought you were busy with being back at work. Don't be too hard on yourself. It's taken me 8 months to loose approx. 20 "pain-staking" lbs with 2 steps forward, 3 back type of weightloss. I refuse to give up LC even when physically struggling with it. It's the first diet that has worked for me in years, so if it takes me another year to loose another 20 lbs, so be it. Even though LC is difficult for a vegetarian to work with on a daily basis, it is easier to stick to than a low calorie one over the long haul. I don't feel deprived from eating some of the foods that I love and are good for me, as I did on LowFat. As long as I can eat PB from a jar with a spoon, nuts, cheeses and whipped cream in my Greek yoghurt while eliminating the excessive sugar and carbs, I think I can live with this long enough to loose the weight and hopefully keep it off. Low calorie was too mentally restrictive for me and I'm finding that the fat in nuts, cream and cheese can keep me satiated (some days anyway-LOL) a little longer too.

Your daily intake doesn't seem excessive to me - but then I eat more calories dense foods than most people here. I'd be crawling the walls if I didn't and doubt I could stick to this diet. I keep telling myself that a slow loss is better than nothing at all. I'm glad to see you back.

Thanks Madge, Now a whole week in and I feel like a million bucks! Only thing I hate about low-carb is that I have to make most of my meals myself. I went shopping today to buy stuff so I can cook. Soups are going to be very popular along with casseroles and salads. That way I can eat on them for several days before I have to cook anything again.

Today's menu:

B - spinach artichoke dip with baby peppers for dippers
S - handful sunflower seeds
L - Homemade fresh low-carb broccoli cheese soup and parm cheese crackers (parm cheese cooked in the microwave)
D - Egg salad with romaine lettuce.
Rum and diet coke for dessert.

The parm cheese and the cream in the soup probably was too caloric but it was delicious!

I'd skip the cranberry, but I'd love to know how you made it orange. I'm thinking about buying some Carbquik and do some Christmas Cookies. How long does it take to get things from Netrition?

Today's menu:

b - cheese stick
l - low carb chicken-less casserole (the one with sour cream and mayo)
s - sunflower seeds --- too many, of course
d - homemade creamy pumpkin sausage-less soup
s - roasted cauliflower

Just in case you were thinking of blending fake sausage into a soup, don't. While it doesn't taste bad or funny in any way, it won't get smooth and gives the soup too much texture. It's delicious, just chewy.

For the orange, I zested 1 small orange and squeezed out the juice from half of it.

I am thinking orange flavoring or if you have s/f dried orange peel, that would work too for less carbs.


I also made a blueberry pecan cake from the same recipe using frozen blueberries. It makes the cake a lot moister so I prefer using dried blueberries, but I was all out of them at the time.

Thanks Nigel. I usually have an orange hanging from the tree ready to eat. They are juice oranges though, and I don't like the mess juice makes, or the sugar it contains.

B - Leftover fake chicken casserole
L - pumpkin sausage-less soup
s - sunflower seeds
d - fake bacon, lettuce, tomato wrap on a low carb tortilla.

I've been drinking way too much soda so tomorrow I'm going to start having a BIG glass of water between sodas and maybe I can at least cut down. I need caffeine though.

S - Mocha Protein Shake (pre-workout)
D - 1 1/3 LC waffles (Betty R's)

I've been making a conscious effort to eat less to see if that is why I've stalled.

Last night (Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013), I made cheese rounds from the help and suggestions forum and they are da bomb! So easy to make too.

Then I made homemade cream of spinach soup.
(I have found that while I dislike canned and frozen spinach immensely, I love fresh baby spinach, esp. in omlettes)

Then I had a salad of bell pepper, radishes, cucumber, and romaine lettuce.

All in all, it was a great dinner.

My spouse even liked everything and she's very picky.
