I put a very lean piece of corned beef into the crockpot at 6 this morning. We will have it with cabbage, carrots and potatoes for Harry. I may make ricotta creme for dessert if the ricotta hasn't expired! If it has, The Girls will eat it for breakfast.

We are having Simple Eggplant casserole. In addition to the eggplant and other things in the recipe, I add zucchini and mushrooms. I'll serve it with WW shell or penne pasta.

Lean ham and mesclan salad with acid free tomatoes, cucumber and roasted capsicum with yogurt for dessert.

What in the world are acid free tomatoes? :yikes:

02-01-2005, 09:31 AM
There are several tomatoes that have been developed as acid-free or lower acidity. Roma tomatoes and other plum-types are frequently lower acid.

tonight I am having fish and broc salad.

I'm having a sandwich on carb conscious ww bagel and a side salad, maybe 3 bean salad? Eating at the dining hall at school, so not many choices. :shrug:

Later this week I'll be trying the curried chicken and spinach recipe in the forums, and a "buddha's delight" tofu stir fry recipe from Cooking Light.

tonight I am going to do another type of wrap (ate chicken and salad in a WW tortilla last night rather than a boring salad). 99% FF ham and cheese perhaps and soup!

I didn't realise that roma tomatoes were acid free as well. I buy mini-roma's by the punnet. So yummy! And they look great on kebabs.

The acid-free that I buy are egg shaped and they may be called italian tomatoes in the rest of the world because they look the same shape as the canned italian tomatoes that I buy. They are really fleshy, not so many pips, and not so acidic (obviously). My daughter takes them to school in her lunchbox when they are in season.

Tonight I'm having grilled chicken (from the George Foreman) on a bed of lettuce and veggies with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Last night I tried the "shrimp and zucchini fry" that I found on this board. Thanks to whomever added that - it was so good! :D

Baked Chicken sauted mushrooms and onions and a mixed green salad. YumYum!

I thought the only reason tomatoes are allowed in phase 1 was because of their acid, since they are a fruit. Now I am confused. I wonder what the GI is of those non-acid ones.

02-01-2005, 11:28 PM
I never even thought about it. I thought all non-starchy veges were allowed.
