Made an AWESOME casserole today- man it is soooo good!

Super easy to make, common ingredients, each serving is about 1 cup- VERY filling and right about at my 300 cal per meal goal- woo!

Cauliflower Casserole

2 Smallish Fresh Heads Cauliflower (approx. 8 cups...6-7 cups after cooking)
2 T Unsalted Butter
4 oz. Cream Cheese
8 oz. Sharp Cheddar, grated
12 0z. Bacon, chopped, cooked & drained (becomes about 3 oz. cooked)
2 Small Green Onions, chopped (about 1 oz.)
1 Clove Garlic, chopped or pressed
Seasoned Salt
Pepper
Water

In large microwavable bowl, add all the cauliflower florets. Add a few T of water and nuke for 5 mins at a time until soft. Keep stirring in between. (This took me about 5 rounds and I added a little more water after 20 mins).

Meanwhile, cook the chopped bacon until crispy. Add garlic to bacon grease and lightly brown. Drain off oil.

When the cauliflower is very soft, mash with potato masher until not too chunky. Add butter and cream cheese to hot mix and blend until smooth. Add most of the cheese, green onions, and bacon. Season to taste w/ salt & pepper. Mix well.

Put in casserole dish, smooth top and sprinkle remaining cheese.

Bake 350 for 20 mins until bubbly.

Makes 8 Serving- about 1 Cup ea.

Oh that does sound good!!

I plan on doing the normal-ish protocol with HCG till I get fed up with it or don't lose any more (I started adding a little fat cos my body was telling me most emphatically that I needed it)... then, not sure what I'll do... maybe JUDDD or maybe will try this. But I need to give the "normal" protocol a fair shake. These drops are not cheap!! lol

I made a mistake lastnight when making my peanut butter balls but came out with a pretty good recipie afterall - thought I'd share. Really yum and great source of fiber.

Peanut butter muffins

8 oz of cream cheese
1/2 cup of sugar free peanut butter
1/2 cup of granulated Splenda
1/4 cup of golden flax seed (grounded into flour like consistency)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp of vanilla

Soften cream cheese about 40 seconds in microwave. Add other ingredients. Beat with mixer till smooth. Pour into a greased (I use Pam spray) 24 mini muffin pan. Bake at 325 for 20 - 23 mins.
Refridgerate or freeze
I'm sure you could use a regular sized muffin pan but I would bake at 325 for a little longer. Haven't tried it yet...

OOOH!!!

I have all of these ingredients right now...love PB so much! I will make a batch today and tell ya what I think. Yummy!

Weighed again... lost ANOTHER pound! I have lost 4 pounds in 1 week- I know some is probably water from coming off TOM- but right now I don't care!

Alie! I think I have dialed it in at 1500 cals too! I try really hard to keep fat at 80% and protein no more than 65, carbs never over 20, watch sodium like a hawk....seems to be working well finally!

Best of all I'm finally not hungry anymore- which means I'm in for the long haul.

I love Mary so much for all of this!

I already made them. YUMMY! Moist little bites of peanut buttery goodness!

The recipe made 24 perfect mini muffins- awesome with coffee. I've already had 2. My house smells soooo good.

I used Trader Joes Valencia PB w/ roasted flaxseeds and I didn't have golden flaxmeal so I used regular.

What is the difference between golden & regular anyway?

Anyway- They are VERY yummy! THANK YOU!

I'm happy I lost recently though and in still hanging on waiting for my body to have TOM which should come in about 100 years at this pace LOL

Hi Guys!

Hang in there Mary! Wow! Lost almost a pound WITH TOM still lurking- you are doing awesome...I gained over 5 pounds with my PMS this month- it sucked!

I cheated last night too and had a couple vodka sodas- lucky my calorie count was pretty low yesterday so hopefully no damage done-

I chose not to weigh this morning just in case-

Good Luck Ladies!

Georgia, I'm losing like crazy too! I keep it around 1500 but my percentages are slightly different than yours. 83 fat, 41 protein, 5 carbs. I have never lost faster in my life. It really is an experiment to see what your body likes.
Keep up the good work and enjoy the PB muffins!

Welcome Jeanny!
Hi all, I have lost another 2 pounds in the last few days! I noticed I lose faster on weekends when away from the stress of the office. Note to self: take more time off

So, to put things into perspective. I am at the weight I got married at. I was a fat bride. I have plenty more to lose. It was not my intention to be an overweight bride, in fact I was determined not to be but with the stress of arranging it and family conflicts on both sides of the family, I ate myself down the isle. I can't bare to look at my wedding pics.

Good news is I am at a much much better place in life.

Wishing you all whooshes this morning!

Poopie... up 0.6 lbs today (I am on HCG but a bit "rogue" with it). The funny thing is, almost everyone I know is up a little today... I am blaming it on "something in the air" and not stressing about it. I hope you folks are all exceptions to the Monday blip!!

I'm happy you liked them - I made a doubled batch and froze them.
I don't imagine there is any difference in the flaxeed- Golden probably provides a nicer colour when baking?? ENJOY!

Morning all!

Alie, I feel some of your stress and pain with the family stress. It is so good to hear that you are in a much better place in life! I can relate. Being a single mom is hard but it is much better than the very unhappy times I had while married to a person that was not very nice.

I am really loving being 40 and feel like I have a whole new start in life!!! That is why it is so important for me to be healthy (& skinny) it is time for some real fun and to only surround myself with good people.

...I had to freeze the rest of my PB Muffins too because I kept eating them! Mmmmm!

Jeany- Yep count me in on the Monday Blip- I weigh the same as yesterday (okay...maybe even a tad more)...but I had WAAAY too much sodium yesterday and I am puffy.

Time to start the salt flush....again.

GOOD LUCK ALL

Hey Jeanyyy,
I'm an HCGer too. Not doing it at the moment, but have had a lot of successes doing FF/NK with it. Right now I'm really not getting anywhere with just NK (though I haven't giving it much time to be honest) so I was thinking about adding the HCG back in. I know part of the problem I'm having is keeping the calories down.
Where are you with calories and HCG? How are you finding the losses?

Thanks, Iíd appreciate anything else you have to add to the idea.

I keep losing! SOOOOOOOOOOO Happy! Down another .8 today. I doubt I will lose much tomorrow because I have been under a tremendous amount of stress today. I can feel that cortisol looking for a place to dump.

Tomorrow is another day!

Have a great day all!

Terri, I'm only in my first ever round and at 12.5 on Day R1P2D21, and I started off at 227 at 5'6" so not exactly anywhere near a good weight. I honestly thought this would go faster. The last 3 days I have either gained a little or stayed the same (up 0.9 from my lowest) so getting a bit frustrated.

I don't know what NK is, I'm afraid. Fat Fast I've heard of, but have never done it. I am a wayyyy old timer with low carb and another Forum and I'm wondering if my slowish losses are related to my body being way too damn smart... lol

Oh, I should add that I do use a little HWC or butter/CO in my coffee. I couldn't STAND it black and was NOT feeling good at all until I added it back in. I'm not tracking calories religiously but the few days I did enter, I averaged around the 500 mark, give or take 10%. I need to get back to doing that.

If you have dieted prior to doing HCG it doesn't work as well. Dr Simeon writes in Pounds and Inches that when he had a patient that dieted, he got them to eat regular for a week before starting the protocol, regardless of how much they gained. I know this is true for me. I dieted prior to my second round and didn't lose as much and was totaly miserable with insane cravings.

Anyone ever tried a fat fast in the middle of Hcg phase 2? Wondering if it works to break plateaus?

I am also a torturously slow loser on HCG. I found if I varied my calories say 500, 700, 550, 650 to trick my body I would lose better. I also had great luck with fat fast to either break a stall or get things moving. I also felt so much better with the addition of fat.

I agree about prior dieting being an issue to lack luster success. I think the fact that I have done so much low carbing keeps my NK from being much more than a maintenance plan. It seems like you need to shake things up to get your body moving. With that said I probably should just go for a protocol round, but I just donít have the heart for it right now.

Iím going to try the roguish of rogue rounds. Iím going to try NK with HCG. I started taking my pellets today. Iím going to load by just eating as much protein and fat as I want without regard to calories. I think I might throw a few carbs in to shake things up, but nothing excessive. Although I do find that I really donít want as many calories on my loading days as I think, and Iím not going to force it at all. Then Friday Iím going to strictly journal keeping calories between 1000 and 1500 and fat between 80-87.

TerriMM,
I'm curious to see how that works for you. I'm a little scared to go off protocol right now because I just started and have so much to lose
The weight loss just seems to be slowing down pretty quick this round and I miss the taste of other foods lol
