Tuna patty recipe is soooo simple...
1 can tuna
1 egg
1 or 2 tbsp italien bread crumbs
sometimes I add onions or peppers, but not usually, I take an icecream scoop and make about 4-5 small patties....

02-17-2009, 10:33 PM
Hmmm, I can do that. :) I've done that with salmon before.

Tonight---yummy dinner!!

I chopped up a ton of napa cabbage, a bell pepper, green onions and carrots. Topped it with chicken I sauteed in olive oil with mushrooms and onions. And served it over a measured portion of spaghetti noodles tossed in a little soy sauce. Sometimes I am a big eater and a head of napa cabbage allows for some serious eating with limited calories. Yum!! Plus, I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

02-17-2009, 11:30 PM
Let's see today:

oatmeal eggwhites
cc yogurt bran flax
meatless chicken burger with cabbage, peas, corn, and other frozen veggies

I'm tired and off to bed now :yawn:

02-17-2009, 11:35 PM
Hmmm,the plan got changed....

B - hard boiled egg, ww toast, :coffee:
S - ff latte
L - my meeting morphed into Mexican food - groan. I had some chicken wrapped in a burrito - weird to have nothing in there with it but it seemed the best choice. Ate part of the refried beans and a little rice. About 5 chips with salsa. Whatever - I'm still full at 6:30, so may skip dinner altogether, or eat some pb toast with tea later in the evening.

Hi girls,

here is the plan for today:
m1: yoghurt etc
m2: cc + cherries
m3: soup & 2 crackers
m4: cc + cherries
m5: tortilla "pizza"
m6: dried cranberries & apples

cardio today: I will scrub my bathroom ( no running because I'm resting my heel; I might try to see a PT about it)

NSV yesterday: I took 2 scoops of rice (1 too many) but I did manage to take some raw cabbage & a glass water for additional snack. Could have done much worse. I'll keep practicins the "oh well" technique, and I'm noticing that I make more thing errors. I'm back into CBT and I am glad to recognise a lot of thinking errors. Now to get rid of them...

I don't see a trhread up for BFL meals week 5..

So here are my data:
yesterday...total waste, did not plan and had foreseeable results.

m1 - yoghurt
m2: musli bar
m3: grilled ham/cheese sandwich
m4: cc + cherries
m5: planned: large salad with shrimp & smoked salmon, small roll
m6: planned: dried fruit, 1 1/4 cup scoop

exercise: I did LBWO and threw in some of the one-legged stuff from NRWL. OUCH! even with body weight only, these are seriously difficult!

Have a nice day,
