Hi Ladies ...

I made mini quiches last night and have had two today. Not bad at all. I can't believe I actually like the one with the cottage cheese, egg, cinnamon, nutmeg and equal.

What times do you all normally eat your meals?

I work two nights a week and I will have to refrain from eating in the middle of the night ...

today so far I had ..

B - bacon, egg, shredded Colby Jack cheese mini quiche and V8

S - cottage cheese, egg, cinnamon, nutmeg & equal mini quiche, with a stalk of celery and hummus, 2 cups decaf with equal and non dairy creamer

Late/L - 1 cup of make due chili :) black beans, chili season, chicken breast, shredded Colby Jack

It's pass lunch time and I am not hungry ... should I eat any way or wait until next snack time? I made a mini quiche with parsley, cheese, and egg and plan to put salsa on it, is that OK? and How many of those little quiches can you eat in a day? Thanks for your help. :)

04-03-2011, 03:51 PM

I believe that the meals and snacks are mandatory in phase one. It's a good idea to eat on a regular schedule to keep your metabolism going. How big are the mini quiches? Eggs are officially unlimited in phase 1, but it's best to keep your portions reasonable. Assuming they're muffin cup size, I would suggest two quiches + some extra veggies for a meal, or one mini quiche as a snack.

Hope that helps!

04-03-2011, 04:08 PM
Thanks shelflife it does help ... I ate some (make shift chili) black beans, mixed with chili season, salsa and chicken breast and 20ozs of water so I'm good for now. :)
The mini quiches are muffin size, one whole egg in each.

04-03-2011, 04:40 PM

Will post my menu for tomorrow in the morning. Still figuring out lunch and dinner.

04-03-2011, 11:53 PM

While others were eating cakes & doughnuts I went back for my 2nd serving of Garden salad & the 2nd half of a deviled egg. I was very proud of myself. :carrot:

04-04-2011, 12:43 AM

I'm full but I also drank about 35ozs of water during all of this. The kids ate left overs and hubby had the house smelling like McDonald's.

I bought some zucchini and yellow squash, need to get some peppers to make this recipe I saw. Also got some ground flax-seed for another recipe I saw but not sure I can have it on Phase 1. Bought some cilantro and light mayonnaise to make the cilantro mayonnaise. Gonna make some new things tomorrow and plan my Tuesday since I have to work Tuesday night.

04-04-2011, 08:09 AM
never got around to posting my menu on 4-2-11 but it was on plan. However, yesterday was a different story. It was such a bad day and I found out I am an emotional eater.

day 7/Phase 1- Here is yesterdays menu


B: Homemade Iced Vanilla Coffee, sugar and fat free with 1 scoop All natural Whey Isolate Vanilla Protein, V-8

S: chick peas

04-04-2011, 09:52 AM
MMC - I have to know, what is avjar?


wt: 149.0


1: 1/3 c. oats w/ banana and walnuts
2: 3 oz. tuna salad (tuna, ff greek yogurt, red bell pepper, red onion, green onion), 5 small spelt crackers, small bunch grapes; 8 oz. kombucha
3: skim milk, 1/4 of apple
4: meatless thai chili (has quinoa, but very phase 2 friendly recipe)

exercise: 60 min. fat-burner class; 30 min. strength training

It's time to get serious again. Last week was a tough week emotionally and I ate my way through the week. It just shows that no matter how much weight I lose, I will always be an emotional eater and I have to strive to keep that in check. Thankfully the foods that I was eating were more or less on plan. This week, my goals will be: no snacking after dinner (even on plan snacks turn me into the snack monster. It is easier to say no the first time than it is to say no after I've had something); 120 oz. of water minimum during the day; vitamins and dry brushing every day!

Yesterday was a wierd food day for me, really high in grains and light in veggies, but I didn't eat anything that wasn't SB friendly, which is about all I expect of myself when flying most of the day.

Today was weigh day; I'm down 1 pound from last week and I'm thrilled! I did eat a lot more grains all week last week than usual and I'm pre-TOM, so I expected to be up a couple of pounds of water weight.

Z-Avjar is a hungarian red pepper spread/tapenade. It comes in "sweet" (which is not really sweet) and "hot". It's 15 calories per tbsp. with minimal fat. I love it on top of whipped cottage cheese with additional hot sauce and avocado.

Even if you ate your way through last week, you still lost weight!

04-04-2011, 04:49 PM
I did, which is a freakin' miracle, let me tell you. I chalk it up to the fact that I blew off steam at the gym before blowing it off in the pantry ;)

Hrm. the avjar sounds really yummy. I might have to see if I can buy it, or maybe even make some. Thanks for the tip.

04-04-2011, 05:30 PM
The weekend was a disaster from a nutritional and caloric standpoint. I am hoping it will function like a "feed" and jump-start a little bit of weight loss. A girl can hope, no?

Phase 2

B - coffee with nf milk. Uncle Sam cereal with nf milk. (Not my planned breakfast, but I am feeling like I'm coming down with a cold and that is the most on-plan comfort food I could come up with)
L - Fritatta with peppers and mushrooms. Side of pinto beans.
S - smoothie with yogurt, protein powder, peaches, spinach, psyllium husk.
S2 - 1/2 apple with peanut butter
D - Red peppers (smallish) stuffed with brown rice, spinach and feta cheese. Pureed cauliflower. Green salad.
dessert - sf pudding.

Tonight - weights @ the gym.

04-04-2011, 05:36 PM
Ladies please tell me if this is too much or something is wrong thanks ...

2 cups of decaf, 54ozs of water so far <--- will increase

04-04-2011, 06:36 PM
love2b - the only thing I see is a lack of veggies. try to get more at every meal. my daily menus change all the time, sometimes my plates overflow with veggies and other days, they lack...just something to strive for :) lookin' good, though!

04-04-2011, 07:41 PM
Hrm. the avjar sounds really yummy. I might have to see if I can buy it, or maybe even make some. Thanks for the tip.

I love this stuff too! Trader Joe's has something that comes close - if they still carry it. Also, here is an article about it WITH a recipe - tho this might be a little different, since it is a Serbian ajvar, not Hungarian. It varies by country (and by region within countries as well). But all of them are good! At least the ones I have tried :)

04-04-2011, 09:00 PM
B-ww toast w/ pb and banan
L-romaine salad w/ olive oil and balsamic, over night oats w/chocolate almond milk and banana (odd combo, I know)

S: SBD PB cup dessert

I only ate about half of the sandwich for lunch (just wasn't feeling it), and about 2 bites of the chicken for dinner (overcooked it). However, I feel stuffed from my dinner of brussel sprouts and yogurt. Not even sure that I'll have my dessert after all.

love2b150: I think your day sounds good.... as long as that fudgesicle is no sugar added ;) Learning to eat more veggies is always a good thing too and I see a good opportunity for it in your menu: you ate peanut butter and laughing cow as your AM snack. Veggies can be a great vehicle for either one of those! Try dipping pepper sticks in your laughing cow, or spreading that PB on a rib of celery for example.

AriRuns: I'm a huge Greek food fan and I sure miss my phyllo pastry! I was inspired by the basic egg muffin recipe on Kalyn's kitchen, and tried to atleast capture the flavour of spanakopita! I use:
about 1 cup of raw baby spinach which I chop up
a hearty amount of minced garlic
1tsp dehydrated onion
1 carton of liquid egg + 1 whole egg (could use 5 whole eggs)
splash of milk
90g light feta, crumbled (equivalent to 3 servings on the package)
salt & pepper

1) Saute the spinach over medium heat with the onion and garlic just a few minutes until it wilts.
2) Transfer that spinach mix to a mixing bowl.
3) Add everything else and give it a good stir.
4) Fill 6 greased muffin cups with approx 1/3 cup of the mixture.
5) Bake at 375ºF for 20-25 minutes or until egg has set.

I usually eat two at a time for breakfast.

Thanks Shelflife, it is sugar free :). The only reason I ate the laughing cow and the natural peanut butter at the same time was because I was out, I was in the van, had just bought them and I had never had either ... a great treat :) I will definitely give the celery and PB a shot, I do like hummus on the celery though.

Mmckellan: I tried your sauerkraut pork chops tonight and they were fab-u-lous! I had to sub two herb & garlic laughing cow wedges because I didn't have any cream cheese on hand, and I threw a chopped apple into with the sauerkraut just for fun! I used small, boneless centre loin chops (~100g each) so it was really quick to make too. Can't wait to eat the leftovers :hungry:
