I'm an idiot....
Since my last post I've been scouring web sites looking for recipes and trying to convert the grams of fat, carbs and protein into "exchanges" so I'd know WHAT I"D BE EATING!!! (and how it all fits into my eating plan.)
(My plan is fantastic if you grill a chicken breast, add a side of rice and a bunch of green beans--and that's basically how I learned to cook a gajillion years ago when I first used a portion control/exchange plan. It's also good with diabetic cookbooks--of which my library has only a few, unfortunately.)
I was getting a wee bit frustrated, not being a nutritionist and trying to make sense of it all.
Then for some reason, I turned to my Leanne Ely cookbooks. (of Flylady fame). I love her recipes--I've been using them consistently for the last three to five years or so.
And guess what? She has broken down the recipes into exchanges! She's already done it! It's right here. (and of course I'd never noticed.)
This is not going to be as hard as I thought--and man, am I jazzed. I just had to share.
