Is there room for someone new?

Hi everyone!
I've been on and off the LC veg diet for quite some time now...Last night, I made a decision to start the diet again- no cheats, no excuses...

I'm a vegetarian (hadn't had meat for over a decate!) and I follow Rose Elliot's plan (for her book).

I'm looking for support and companion... hope to find it here. I've been reading some of the threads- you all seem like very nice people.

I'm 25 and intrested in losing 12 lbs or so.

Also- English is not my native tongue, so I'm sorry in advanced for any language mistakes..

Nice to meet you Heather! Rose Elliott's plan is really good. Have you been using her recipes or coming up with your own recipes?

Your English is great What country do you live in?

Thanks guys!

Thanks for the warm welcome!
My first day went along okay- it's actually easier second time around...
I know it's probably just water, but I feel a change already...

And I'm from Israel :-)

Glad to hear your first day went well! Even if it was water weight, it still makes your clothes feel looser

I lived in Israel for a number of years - in Jerusalem .. pretty good place to lowcarb! (although I was a highcarb vegetarian back then - and I am sure things have changed a lot since I was last there).

keep up the great work!

Israel is a great place to low carb- lots of places that serves salads and cheese so eating out is rather easy.

That's cool- how you used to live in Jerusalem. Small world!

Tomorrow Im going food shopping... Yay :-)

Please share some of your recipes that might be different than what we eat here in the states. I love to try new and different flavors. Welcome!

Well, I usually stick to omlettes, tufo, veg and cheese.
I know that in the states it's hard to find low fat (5% fat and under), and altough fat is allowed on this diet, I still perfer to have low fat cheese- that way I can have more.

One basic recipe that comes to mind is something called "2-2-3 pie":
That means:
2 packs (250 grams each) of low fat cream/cottage cheese (I like to use one of each)
3 eggs
2 cups of vegetables of your choice.
You can add some olive oil on top.

Bake in a pre-heat oven 180C for 45 minutes or so.

I'll share some more later on- need to jog my memory :-)

I forgot-

Add a table spoon of baking power.

Also by 2 cups I meant 2 cups of chopped vegetables.
I usually use a mix of mushrooms- if you're using other vegetables, make sure you squeeze them real good so all the water's gone.

I made one last night and it's my breakfast and lunch for today

Yes, the recipe does sound good and a little similar to a crustless quiche recipe I have. This one looks easier (and smaller ) too, (mine was for 9 x 13 pan) which is good when you are only cooking LC for one. Thanks!
