I thought it might be nice to have a thread that lists what everyone had for their main meal every day so when we need inspiration we can check the thread for ideas.

Does that make sense?

Tonight I treated myself to a sirloin steak, pan fried, served with a sauce of broth (knorr stock pot) and sour cream, and buttered green beans.

I am having a big salad tonight. Normally I don't fix an extra meal for my family, but they deserve to be able to have their spaghetti and garlic bread once in a while! LOL!!

I'm having Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, fresh motz, a little bit of shreeded colby jack and some grilled chicken on top, with ranch dressing.

I'm craving a really cold crunchy salad tonight!

Your dinner sounds good!

i have to hit the grocery store bec i'm out of salad (DISASTER!!!!) but when i get back (2-1/2hrs late for my dinner), it'll be

13 shrimp (size 31-40) poached in their own juices (sprinkle with water on the frying pan then pop a lid over them - no butter, no oil) then sprinkled with black pepper, lemon juice, and scotch bonnet sauce

salad - greens, sweet pepper, celery, tomato, onion, mushrooms, sprinkled with balsamic vinegar

big cup of green tea (i think i might see if there is a *caffeinated* version of my favourite, lychee/pear)

Last night I cooked up a burger, melted cheese on it and then topped it with some salsa and sour cream. It was yummy! I also had a salad on the side with lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber and some Italian dressing.

It was an awesome Atkins dinner

Tonight was chicken breasts in dijon cream sauce and green beans again.

Tomorrow I'm going to have to add a salad before dinner, 'cause I just can't make it through two cups at lunch!

I think tonight I'm going to coat some chicken breast in olive oil and bake them with some oregano, basil and sage. I'll steam some veggies for me and make a carby side for my husband.

Tonight was fried ham and scrambled eggs with cheese. No veggie, but since I've been spending 2 carbs on a scoop of Green Superfood every day, I think I'll be okay skipping a dinner vegetable this once.

And I just treated myself to some chocolate induction mousse. I'm going to try to make that an occasional treat only, but today is day 3 and the Atkins flu demanded something special!

Default Tomato and Avocado salad

I give this recipe to all of my weight loss clients, they all seem to really like it. Use it as a side to chicken or fish, or by itself as a snack. Hope you enjoy it!

Katie Meyers

4-6 plum tomatoes, cut into chunks
1 avocado, cut into chunks
1/2 red onion, sliced
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste

I'm not sure if its ever shown up officially anywhere...I started making it the last time I did Atkins.

3 tbsp of whipping cream, 3 tsp of cocoa (Green & Black's Organic has .3 carbs per tsp) and 1.5 tsp of Splenda with a little extract...vanilla or almond are nice. Then whip it up and it's rich, quick, indulgent, but also induction-friendly.

OMG...this evening I tried that recipe for cauliflower that's sort of "loaded potato" flavour. See, I've always hated cauliflower and haven't tried in for years. I figured I'd use the cauliflower dish as a side with hamburgers.

Not only is it really, really good, but it was so filling, I couldn't eat all my meat!

I'll have to make this one again, but I'll add a bit more bacon and make it a main course.

Guys - I invented the best recipe ever! I wanted a philly cheese steak sandwich in the worst way so I invented the philly cheese steak pie.

-Sautée an onion, pepper, and mushrooms.
-Get the best deli roast beef you can find. Don't scrimp here!
-In a pie plate, layer roast beef, onion, pepper, mushroom, and provolone cheese.
-Repeat layers as many times as you like (I did three layers).
-Cover with foil and bake until the cheese is melted and gooey.
-Slice and serve.

I'm going to try it with ham and cheddar next!

Yum. That sounds delish. thanks for posting.

We are having really nice weather here in NY, so I grilled a big batch of chicken breasts the other day. Tonight I had steamed fresh green beans tossed with feta cheese and the chicken. Yum. Doesn't taste like diet food at all.

I just drove through Wendy's and got the new "W" burger without the bun and it is DEEElish! That burger and a caesar side salad combined are 10 carbs.
