Congrats StarPrincess on your postings - looks very professional :).

My questions is WHERE ARE ALL YOUR VEGGIES? I may have to talk to your mother about this. Need to see those 2-3 cups of veggies on a daily basis.....now go directly to the fridge (do not pass go, do not collect $200)....open the veggie crisper, and start chopping!

I'm so bad about veggies! I'm tired of salads so it's a struggle to fit them in. That's a bonus to me posting what I eat - it forces me into awareness. :)

So I admit, yesterday I was bad bad bad. I did have capers in my alfredo sauce, but I hardly think that counts. Tonight's clam chowder is made with lots of pureed cauliflower so the veggies are there - they're just in disguise!

Okay Star - we will accept the "disguised" veggies, but you need to make sure you get those in - and they don't have to be salads. Cooked veggies are great too - one of my favorites is zucchini - pretty low carb - stir fried with some garlic flavored olive oil and add in some sliced onions and mushrooms....yum.

I actually also get tired of salads sometimes - actually tired of making them...so instead I just cut up some lc veggies and bring them to work in baggies w/salad dressing as dip (cucumbers, radishes celery, peppers, etc).

Breakfast (if you can call it that at 11 am after fasting bloodwork completed)
2 slices mozzarella cheese (1.2)
tea w/splenda & cream (2.2)
=3.4

Lunch (the leftovers from Outback!)
4 oz broiled swordfish (1 for some spices on it?)
salad (4)
1 tbs ranch dressing (.5)
diet jello (.1)
=5.6

Snack?? 1 oz sunflower seeds (3)
diet soft drink? (1)
=4

Dinner? who knows? probably broiled hamburgers w/cauliflower (with cheese on top!). = 6
1/2 c. yogurt w/blueberries (9)
=15

Total: 28 carbs - need to catch up on today's water drinking!
Scale down to new low of 186.6 :D

Better Star...but still not enuf veggies (do I really have to call your Mother??). You MUST have at least 2 cups of salad and 1 additional cup of salad or other veggies - or even 3 cups of allowed veggies. I don't think a few sticks of celery and pieces of cauliflower will do the trick??

Do you have any favorite veggies?

Froufy :)

15 blueberries (3)
decaf w/cream (2)
=9

Lunch:
80 grams cold cuts (1)
3 slices mozzarella cheese (1.8)
cucumber slices/radishes (2)

1 oz sunflower seeds (3)
diet soft drink (1)
=4

18 so far - no dinner plans...Last night was a fiasco as dh was working late, kids were hungry...found some leftovers for them, and as I worked I started NIBBLING ON THE DEVIL MACADAMIA NUTS!....with a diet soft drink, which filled me up considerably so I did not want to eat dinner! (GASP :s: )...ended up with a small dish of plain yogurt w/sf raspberry syrup and that's it (Still equaled about 30 carbs and 1566 calories for the day).

Scale down again!!!! YIPPEE

StarPrincess: Where do you buy the cinnamon pork rinds? I'm getting a little tired of making my own. Although, if that's the only way I can have them, I will keep making them -- they are absolutely delicious!!

I buy mine at one of the many many low carb stores that I'm surrounded by (did I mention that I'm a lucky girl?)

You can go to www.gramsgourmet.com and check out their website. It will let you know if there's a store near you where you can buy them and also where you can order them online. I get both cheddar and the cinnamon so I have variety! I'm really hoping for bbq in the future :)

Ok, still working on my veggies. :^:

Breakfast:
2 string cheese - 2
2 decafs with half & half/splenda - 6
2 celery stalks - 1

Lunch:
Rotisserie chicken breast - 1
Diet caffeine free Pepsi - 0
