Breakfast: Toast with PB and banana(1S, 1P, 1F) Fat = ICBINB
Snack: Lite, yogurt (1L, 1/2D)
Lunch: LC frozen meal, salad with blueberries & raspberries (1P, 1S, 2F)

Dinner: Chicken, rice, broccoli & snowpeas (1P, 1S, 2V) Fat + ICBINB
Snack: 100 cal bag smart pop, 1 yogurt (1S, 1/2D)

Good grief, I'll be stuffed!

You aren't using the ICBINB spray as a fat are you?

08-09-2007, 04:24 PM
Yes, I was, is that not allowed now? Eek! That's my favourite fat!

08-09-2007, 04:34 PM
It is allowed but as a condiment - UNLIMITED! You can have that and a fat!

Angie - hope you see this. Since I am not a vegetarian, I was told not to use peanut butter as a protein. At least not at first. I was told to stay away from the vegetarian proteins.
Suggestion for fats - I use nuts. My current favorite is 6 almonds.

08-10-2007, 12:28 PM
Thanks Katy and Lynn!

Actually I did see the peanut butter note a bit late, I had that for breakfast already. Lynn, I read on the new plan thread that we can't use nut, but I guess it was probably for protein. So I can have some almonds or something too? Awesome! Can we still use cream cheese as a fat?

Too bad about the veggie proteins though. I really only eat chicken, beef and a little pork, so I'm pretty limited. I use cheese and peanut butter quite often.

08-11-2007, 07:44 PM
Hi Angie,
Yes, you can use 1 TB reg or 1 1/2 TB lite cream cheese as a fat, but it is in the Consume Infrequently category.
