I'm back after 2 weeks of being MIA...and I'm paying for it. I went to the COD today, repented for my sins:nono: and told the counselor that I want to start over...new diary, do TO for two days...the whole thing.

So now that I have that off my chest, have any of your centers told you about their new website. You can chart your progress, keep your diary on-line, there are message boards, exercises, motivational tips, hotline #'s, over 200 new recipes...one really neat thing they have is "LA Chef". You can take ANY recipe that your family enjoys, e-mail it in and they will send it back to you in a modified on-plan version and tell you how to count it. How cool is that? So once they had me totally hooked on they whole thing, they say "And it is only $99 for an entire year." Very tricky!!! But I was hooked and excited so I said Sign me Up! I will have access within 24 hours and let you all know what it is like....Is anyone else doing this?

Oh, and you can also plan your meals ahead by typing them in your on-line diary, and it will generate a shopping list for you!

Welcome back and glad your ready to start the program over we missed you. Yes they told me about their online site, but I wasn't going to pay the $99. Maybe in time, but I think it's to high of a price. Let us know how it works for you. Maybe you can post some of the great recipes for us.

So do you have to be a member first or what? Is it like weight watchers online where you don't have to go to a center at all? I am guessing not...

I will absolutely do that along with any other good info I find! I thought $99 was high too, but I'm a sucker for any and all support I can get. Plus, I had a counselor today that I have never met before. She's at my center on Tues and Thurs...the days that I'm normally not there. She was fantastic! Very supportive, understanding, not pushy at all...just what I needed after falling off the wagon. I told her how she felt about me weighing in 2x a week instead of three and she told me that I should do what I feel I need to do, and she noted in my chart that I would only be in twice/week. She made me leave the COD feeling very positive.

Oops...I asked her how she felt, not told her :dizzy:

Yes, Mary, you do have to be a member. They assign a client number for you to login.

Wow, $100 sounds like a lot. But I guess when you look at it as less than $10 a month, it seems more tolerable. If only they would give you a trial period, or you could pay monthly so that if you find that you don't use it at all, you don't waste that money!

Tina, you'll have to let us know whether you find it useful and worth the money!

Thanks!

Or if you could pay them $10 plus a month instead of paying it all up front. Yes Tina definitely let us know how it works for you. I agree it helps to have the added supportive. I'm not working at this time and can't afford the extra money.

Well, this is another miscommunication between corporate and franchise. My center, which is corporate, said that the website was going to be available to everyone who was on LAWL free of charge. Just wait until I go in on Friday.

emmysmom i was wonding if it would be too much to ask if maybe you could post a few of the recepies from the new website. I am considering it. I asked my center about it and they said they will offer it soon but that they are still learning about it. But before I go and pay $99 for the site I wanted to cheat and preview a few of the recepies. I have the hardest time coming up with new things to eat so I think the site might help.

Okay, chickies...I really want to help you out with any recipes that you want. The trouble is that the online cookbook is set up so that it gives you recipe titles by category and then you have to click on a link to get the actual recipe...and there are lots of them. So if anyone wants me to, i can pm you the list of recipes available (there are 7 pages in the list) then you can pick which recipes you would like for me to post. I can list them on this thread as well, it will just be a long post. Let me know what y'all would like me to do.

emmysmom

1 Roma tomato, seeded and diced
juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp Morton Lite Salt®
1 jalape®o, diced (optional)


Preparation Instructions:

fork. Next add remaining ingredients; toss

Some cilantro would be good in that...

I usually do lazy "sandwich" guacamole, which is just mashed avacado with salt and garlic powder like the kind they put on sandwiches. It is so good. How can something that grows on a tree be so fatty!!!

I got hooked on it in college (first time I remembered having it). This Mexican restaurant made their own salsa and it was VERY cilantro heavy. I actually replicated it. It was roma tomatoes 1/2 diced, 1/2 food processed, lots of lime to "cook" the tomatoes, gresh garlic, LOTS of cilantro, and onions. Oh my goodness. Ever since then I have never found a salsa so good. It just makes everything taste so fresh and bright. I'm a basil and dill nut, too...gotta grow my own on those two so I don't go broke, but I can shell out 40 cents for a bunch of cilantro. It's harder to grow...I tried.

I love the new website. it is so helpful. Plus in looking at the recipes, you get more ideas how you can use combinations of food and additions that you wouldn't think you could use without counting. Did that make any sense at all. :D Anyhow, here is a recipe i tried and love.

Red Beans and Rice



Ingredients:
1 lb dried beans, rinsed and picked over
1 Tbsp olive or canola oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 ribs celery, chopped
1 cup chopped onion
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 jalapeño, seeded and deveined, chopped
2 quarts low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup flat-leafed Italina parsley, chopped
2 cups cooked rice

Instructions:
Place beans in a large bowl; cover with water by one inch. Soak overnight. Drain and set aside.
In large soup pot, heat olive oil over medium flame. Add garlic, celery, onion, and peppers. Saute until soft, about 10 minutes.
Add broth and beans. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat.
Continue to cook over low heat until beans are soft, about 2 hours. Stir occasionally while cooking.
Garnish with parsley and serve over hot cooked rice.


Makes 6-8 servings

Serving Size: 1 cup beans with 1/3 cup rice

Counts As:

1/2 or 1 Protein, size according to plan
1 Starches

02-17-2006, 11:56 AM
I don't know if the recipes change according to plan you are on. I am on the Red 1 plan. Someone on a different plan may want to compare this recipe to the same one on their plan.

I went on the site today and noticed that there is no longer a sign in section and it appears to be free for everyone - including the recipes. there are no diary sections, or the ask the chef section though. does anyone know what's up with this? really doesn't effect me since I rarely use it and only go to look at the recipes (which are there), but I just found it weird.
