Lilly~ what is a pork steak? Ive never heard of it before. Kinda like pork chops without the bone?

Maggie~ how did you cook your zucchini. I have a huge one left (didnt get that chocolate zucchini cake made) So now I should do something healthy with it....right ? :lol3:

A pork steak is almost like pork chops. It does have a bone. Usually is a larger cut of pork. They are great cooked on the grill.

Tonite we had boneless beef ribs, salad and green beans. Not much variety I know, but easy to fix.

RobinW
09-05-2006, 06:46 PM
ok, that sounds pretty tastey Lilly

Tonights supper was pan fried Haddock (in butter with lemon) :T and parmesean zucchinni fries. <~~these were a new recipe, and a definite do-again!

Robin, that sound so yummy. I am in a rut of wanting chicken salad every day. I just love it home-made. Dang, I'm a good cook, no wonder I got so fat. LOL.

09-07-2006, 09:28 AM
Lily, I don't know how you do it with all that good cooking. I have a little bit of an idea because I can't have dairy so when I fix pizza for the family I usually don't eat. You wrote once about doing meat with veggies in a roaster or something like that. Could you tell us how to do that again?

lilybelle
09-07-2006, 01:39 PM
I usually do very well at not being tempted by the fattening foods that I make for my family. My kids have always loved chicken and dumplins so I still make it for them occasionally. I do like them too, but know they make me fatter, so I just make plenty of boiled chicken and make chicken salad for myself. Which I love. Before my lifestyle change, I'd eat whatever and whenever I wanted. I was bad to over-eat. I still do sometimes, but usually it is on healthy stuff. Such as fresh raw veggies with ranch dip. I cook most of my meats either on the outside grill, the George Foreman grill , broiler or crock pot. I don't usually fry anything except occasionally boneless chicken breasts without flour and they taste good this way to me. To barbecue meat I simmer meats in skillet for a couple hrs. in 1/2 cup ketchup with 1/2 cup diet coke mixed together. It gives them a sweet bbq flavor and I don't dip any extra of the sauce over my meat when I eat it. This is great for pork chops and ribs. I use a steamer for my veggies quite often. Or I cook veggies on cookie sheet in over drizzled with olive oil and seasoning salt. Steak cut in strips with veggies (I used squash, onions and brussel sprouts) with olive oil and seasonings all covered in foil and roasted in oven is good. I try out quite a few of the low-carb recipes in the entree section for added variety to my meals. I also loved baked fish with butter and lemon sauce and tartar sauce.

My mom is making whats called taco pie today and it has a cornbread top. If I pick off the cornbread and eath the groundmeat , onions and corn will I be ok?

But I think I should be ok if I have a small amout. But i am going to be so hungry still. Heck Im still hungry now. But I dont want to eat cause I dont want to ruin my carbs.

Chicken breast............

oh, ok. I get it. :smug: That's a good one. And ''a moment on the lips, forever on the hips." That reminds me last weekend my Dad was visiting. He always brings beef steaks to grill, and we make make a salad and buy him a loaf of sour dough french bread. I have usually caved and ate it and then some the next day until it's gone. And normally, I would 'kill' for a good loaf like that, but instead this time, before he arrived, I placed it on my stomach and showed my husband how I might as well just glue it on my body. Neither one of us ate one crumb of that loaf. We told him to take it when he went home, or it would be tossed out. He forgot it, so we stuck it in the freezer. A few days later, we needed that space for our meats, so I threw it in the garbage! That was a first for me. I suppose that's my 'anti brownie'. :D Thanks.

Hey there!
For the past two months I have been reading your posts. I have to thank you for all of your ideas. They have been very usefull. I figured that perhaps one day I could return the favor and provide you with some insight as well. Unfortunitly I dont have too many tips today ..but will fill you in when I have some :)
I enjoyed the peanutbutter fudge brownies....They were an excellent tip. I added baking soda to make them rise.

I am trying to get used to the ****aki noodles but am finding it difficult. I prepared themas a mock chicken alfredo but didnt have muck luck. I will give it one more shot as an addition to meat sauce. But thatas it....if I dont like them Im giving up on that Tofu Wanna be Pasta!

Good Luck to All!

I used canned green salsa (which btw has 0 carbs and tons of salsa taste.) diced tomatoes, sour cream, shredded lettuce, ground beef with taco seasoning and boy was it good!! (Not to mention a really cheap meal) My family ate the same thing, and the only thing they complained about was no shells. Hub even said that I needed to market the salad!

I didn't see a lunch thread, but I'm sure there is one!

I had to share my lunch with you guys!!! I do eat more liberally on carbs (40 per day right now), but this was GREAT.

I ate at Ruby Tuesday's with DH. I had 5 pcs hot wings with blue cheese dressing and a couple celery sticks, trip to salad bar (lots of choice there), the new orleans seafood (tilapia covered in parmesan sauce and shrimp) which comes with steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes (I of course substitued their mashed cauliflower). All together I think my meal was about 22 carbs (counting my big plate of salad). Without salad it was 18 Net carbs - of which I only ate 1/2 (God bless whoever invented the doggie bag). I know, 9 net carbs plus salad plate is still high for some, but for a splurge you can save up a little for - YUM!!! And it was a nice little "date lunch." To be honest, I couldn't finish the wings or entree without being too full, so the other half will be my supper.

I had to laugh last night, Lily, I looked at my plate and thought, "This is how Lily eats." I had steak, baked eggplant, raw cauliflower and dip and 2 slices of fresh tomato! My dh and dd had hash browns but I don't like them. But I'm not a big meat eater, don't like eggs and can't have anything with calcium so I don't think I'l last long on Atkins.
