SFT 26/365 Wonderful Wednesday

Recommended Posts

Guest sodacracker

Are you on repeat or try again today? If you are on try again, did you make some gain yesterday? Resist something, track better, did anything that showed that you were paying attention to the program at some point during the day?

 

Still following my somewhat boring food plan for Day three, but it is keeping me in check and I appreciate that.

 

Will check in this afternoon, busy this week as we are looking at changing DS to another school and as he needs an LD resource room there are a lot of steps to complete before they will let him start.

I'm hanging in there Soda - been having migraines for some reason. I've cut out aspartame (I chew A LOT of gum since I quit smoking years ago) - so it might be related to that.

I need to keep low on the WAPs and watch the salt intake. I'd love to get some exercise in as well, but I still seem to have a lot of work to do with my side business. I'm crossing my fingers for a huge snowstorm so I can maybe work from home and work on some stuff :)

Hi ladies.

 

I am down .6 today, so that is helping my motivation. Also have a dinner dance to go to the first week of Feb, so losing a few pounds before that would be nice.

 

I plan to stick with the every few hours balanced protein carb eating today. I can make good choices. I can be prepared.

 

9:00 - smoothie THEN coffee (that is an accomplishment for me)

11:30 - clementine - should have had some protein

12:45 - chickpea spinach veggie burger, flat bread, mustard

s

d

 

Need to think about the food plan.

 

Have a healthy one. See you later.

It was a recipe I got off this site, but I will post it here for you.

Inside Out Egg Rolls - Tried & True

I just finished eating this and have claimed planned-overs for lunch! I got it from the WW Core board but I don't remember who posted it, unfortunately.

 

1 bag cole slaw mix (cabbage, carrots, etc.)

1 TBS canola oil (I used Olive Oil)

Soy sauce, to taste

1/2 tsp garlic powder (I used half a fresh clove)

1/2 tsp ginger powder

1/2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder OR allspice

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Add-ins: 1.5 lb of your choice of cooked tofu, meat, poultry, or seafood; and your choice of canned, drained water chestnuts, snow peas, canned hearts of palm, canned bamboo shoots, snow peas, etc.

 

Saute slaw mix in canola oil until it cooks down. Add soy sauce and spices; saute a bit longer, then add your choice of add-ins.

 

Serves 4-6

 

I used a blend of cabbage, carrots and red cabbage, chicken breast, water chestnuts and the allspice. Next time I will cook the cabbage a little less and add another can of water chestnuts. This is definitely a keeper - a new tried and true!

 

 

 

I got 6 servings at 4 points plus value.

 

 

Also, used ground turkey this go around and we liked it better than the larger pieces of chicken.


Never give up or look back,

Hey buddies!

 

I didn't have time to check in earlier. The weather is improving (only about -10C!!!)so DH & I both walked the dog for 30 mins this morning, then I just had time for breakfast before heading to work.

 

I am going to take the dog out for another 30mins when I'm done here.

 

B: oatmeal

S: apple (loving the Cripps Pink variety right now!)

L: COW pancakes (leftovers) with strawberries

S: fruit, I have some yummy blood oranges

D: pork tenderloin with potatoes & veggies

Will probably have another fruit snack after dog training class tonight

 

 

Well done Teg on your loss!

Ladies, does anyone have a formula that works well for vegggie burgers?

Meaning: 1 cup beans to 2 cups grain to 1 cup veggies to 2T vital wheat gluten...Something where different beans and grains and veggies could be used.

Teg -

1 cup beans - I put 7 points.

1/2 cup of vital wheat gluten is 6 points - so put 2 to be safe but 1 could work out.

Grains if you're using rice, 4 pts per cup. if it's breadcrumbs, I put 6 pts per cup.

Hope that helps out!

Thanks so much Michelle. I should have been more clear. I was wondering if anyone makes veggie burgers and knows good ratios of ingredients. I made a good one this week, but I just kept adding this and that until it was a good texture. I don't use the vital wheat gluten too often, so I don't really know HOW to use it. What are good proportions of beans to veggies to grain to binder?

 

Thanks again for trying to help me, Michelle. :)

Teg - this is what I do.

But I make like these bean patties - they're based off the 'chickpea cutlets' from Veganomicon.

http://www.theppk.com/2010/11/doublebatch-chickpea-cutlets/

 

Check it out! I add a little more beans and less breadcrumbs and wheat gluten so it's less chewy and just lets it hold together.

I add indian spices, or go mexican with it and add maseca flour (corn flour) instead of wheat flour and add some chunks of jalepenos. You can totally just go wild with this!

if you are not vegan you can also use an egg as a binder, and some breadcrumbs or, flour.

I chant to take my mind off food.

 

There is no way I can really be hungry even, if it feels that way.

don't mind me - I just keep posting to stop myself from being silly and eating even thought I know I should not, will not, can not, because of taking my evening prescription.

 

DH watching a Kurt Cobain documentary, DD studying for exam, DS reading Nate the Great.

 

Do you ever find yourselves in other communications like e-mails to non BCB people using the little shorthands like DH and DS? I do, and have even done so in conversation a few times, and then get a puzzled look.:bcb_LOL:
