This is the place to get support, post tips and menus, find new food ideas and brag about your successes. What's your combo? What's your challenge?
Please post the phase so new folks can see the progression.

Late winter/early spring can be a tough time. Maybe you have had it with the gym and really want to be outside but it's spitting and blowing. There isn't a lot of good, fresh produce easily available. Those late season storms can make comfort eating seem appealing. How do you stay on track when you just want to curl up with a large bar of chocolate and make it all go away? What about exercise? How do you motivate yourself to go to the gym or get on that treadmill one more time?

Cottage - I crossed the coffee cake recipe with the bean brownie recipe. It really changed the texture - made it drier and more like a nice moist cake. It bakes much faster!

I added 1/2 c cocoa, upped the agave to 1/2 c, used 1 t vanilla and added 1/2t baking soda. I replaced the 2 T oil with 2 T pb :) It is definitely a hit at our house. Next time I'm going to use 1/4 c PB to get a little more PB taste. I baked it at 350 and I think it was done in about half an hour. The cocoa makes the edges get that burned taste very quickly so watch it carefully.

Phase 1.5, but I have been very sparse with the P2 foods until I see my doc again. She's advising me on this diet, and I haven't been given the official all-clear to start adding that stuff back into my diet, though she has given the go-ahead for some fruit. I was diagnosed with PCOS pretty recently, so we're taking it slow and seeing what works.

S - Cup of coffee with LF Half and Half; cheese
L - Chili made from a SBD friendly recipe on Kalyn's Kitchen (2 servings of veggies per serving) w/LF cheese and LF sour cream

out of milk so I didn't get my dairy today. I also needed to up the veggies. This afternoon was a whirlwind, so I grabbed the fastest thing I could. It was on plan, but it could have been better.

Hey Cyndi,
I was looking through the recipe section but can't find the coffee cake recipe to see how to work your switches in. Where is it?

CyndiM
03-08-2010, 08:41 PM
I'm hesitant to post it until I have the time right. I'll post it here if anyone wants to experiment with it.

1 can white beans, rinsed and drained
4 eggs
1t vanilla
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1/2 c agave
1/4c nut butter
1t baking powder
1/2t baking soda
dash salt

mix it all in the blender and pour into lightly oiled pan. here's the tricky part - I think I baked it about 30 minutes at 350 but I could have cooked it less time. Basically bake until you get a dry toothpick. Makes 12 generous pieces.

Cottage - you could skip the nut butter and use the 2T oil instead. It would still be good :)

Maryjaneld

Hi

I didn't eat everything I said I was going to yesterday because I simply wasn't hungry enough. Anyone else notice a shrinking appetite during Phase 1? Which is a good thing but bad because my veggies suffered. My appetite seems to be more normal today & my scale is kinda wonky:?:

AM Snack: Bean muffin

Lunch: Egg salad in lettuce leaves. (I never made & ate this yesterday just PB & celery for lunch)

Afternoon snack (if I need it): Celery sticks w herbed cream cheese or maybe a couple slices LF cheese

Dinner: LO black bean chili w LF cheese. Skim milk

Dessert (if I'm hungry) PB cup & def herbal tea w Splenda
