your low on fresh veggies and your lunch consists of black beans and salsa heated for about a minute and sprinkled with parm cheese! And a side of milk! :)

And last nights dinner was frozen string beans sprinkled with parm cheese, and milk!

ROFL..

Breakfast consists of deviled eggs, yogurt, and sauteed spinach. :yikes:

You have 23 different uses for cauliflower, but all involve "making" it into another food (mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, fried rice, etc).

you know you're a SB junkie when:

Your produce drawers are full, there's more produce on the regular fridge shelves, and you're not sure you'll make it through the week without having to make a produce run.

Snow peas taste sweet - like candy.

You tote in your lunch bag to work even on the rare occasion you go out to lunch because you still need your breakfast and snacks. They take up more room than most people's lunches!

You've reserved a whole drawer or shelf in the refrigerator at work because you have to have room for snacks, lunch, and condiments.

The produce part of your shopping list takes up 1/3 to 1/2 the length of the list.

Someone says "Black bean brownie" and instead of having an instinctive "Yuck" feeling, you wonder whether it's a different or better recipe than the one you've tried.

(I lost half a head of lettuce because hubby turned the fridge setting colder. it froze and wilted while we were gone this weekend.)

People think I'm weird to count out 15 almonds... or the little tiny tupperware container in my purse that holds exactly 2 Tbs. of my beloved SBD dressing... or when I went to Olive Garden and picked the pasta out of my minestrone and asked for a separate salad without the house dressing on it.

We buy a big jar of whatever "regular" PB is on sale and mark the lid with a sharpie "DOGGY PB". This is to warn visiting family that it might have a double dip with a knife/spoon filling a doggy kong. The "people" PB is in the fridge.

You know you're a SB junkie when you are constantly mentally or out loud adjusting recipes to make them SB friendly.

You know you're a SBD junkie when you have a menu spread sheet that you fill out every week to guarantee that you have planned your meals and snacks and that you are getting enough veggies and beans

When you feel deprived if you run out of frozen spinach to put in your morning protein shake.

When steel-cut oats, nonfat milk, and cinnamon tastes just exactly sweet enough.

When your husband says, "Let's have a dinner salad tonight, I'm feeling salad-deprived since we only had green beans and broccoli the last two nights."

When you pull 3 or 4 packages of fruits and vegetables out of your lunch cooler, put them on your desk, and beam happily at the bounty of food before you.

When your 7 year old son claims to actually like the broccoli you've just cooked, after months of gagging and whining!

When you have sugar-free vanilla ice cream in the freezer, and natural sugar-free fruit preserves to mix in to make a yummy fruit ice cream, and yet...you...just aren't that interested, because you're not hungry.

When the feeling of having an empty stomach is not all that bad, because your blood sugar is so stable now there's no crashing. So "hunger" doesn't mean desperation to eat.


All this stuff happened to me this past week. And has been happening. It's pretty amazing. Heck, my weight loss is pretty amazing to me, too. It feels like it shouldn't be this easy!

You look at the grape tomatoes you portioned out and say to yourself, there's no way I'll be able to eat all of those. And you're right!

I'm going to have to look for this. I buy NSA apple sauce. For a special occasion with guests, we bought "regular" chunky applesauce - could not believe how sweet it was. Mixed it 50/50 with smooth NSA and it was still way too sweet.
