First full day of summer break

I had grandiose plans for what I would accomplish.
I'm really good at wasting time (or is it relaxing? )

I put a cup (frozen usually) in a taller bowl, microwave it on high for 4-1/2 minutes, take it out, add ~3 teaspoons of raspberry or strawberry WF spread, mix it around to melt it in, and then I eat it warm. It always satisfies. I like things on the sour side though, then too I guess some sweetener could be thrown in for those who need it. I wouldn't call that a recipe though, it's a down and dirty, heat and eat sort of thing lol - right up my alley. Amongst you all though, I am rethinking it and may add flavoring and/or cinnamon to the mix next time. I haven't needed xanthan gum in there, but suppose it would thicken it up if I wanted to play with that.

Wow it's going to be pretty today outside. I hope you all have a lovely day too.

I am not good at planning ahead, either, so I will have to give this a try! Thanks Barb!

I'm new -- so are ALL the WF products allowed?

Hi Margaret,
You have to watch the WF stuff. They have some sugar free varieties that are not allowed. You want the ones that are 0/0/0 (zero carb, zero fat and zero sugar) Some taste pretty nasty to me, others I like. As far as general salad dressing goes, most people seem to like the 1000 Island, and I did/do, but my favorite (and others will cringe) for salads is the Balsamic Vinegar one. I like the italian as well. The fruit spread is very thick, like a jelly and it is an odd consistency, but it adds the fruit flavor and sweetness. The strawberry syrup is a easier to add/mix in with rhubarb, but I am sort of liking the raspberry fruit spread in my rhubarb for a change. Good luck! Let us know what you think when you try some out.

Barb

Good morning!

I like the pancake syrup and the bbq sauce. The Thousand Island is good on Big Mac in a Bowl and the Italian is ok, Those are the only ones I've tried since I try not to use very many extras.

You've come to the right place for support, answers, and advice.

Any items with zero fat, carbs, and calories are considered free, but it is best, as in everything in life, to use in moderation. 3 or 4 servings a day.

IP has done something curious with the new protocol that came out in Feb.
They took the 0/0/0 (carbs/sugar/fat -not 0 cals) off the sheet.
From what I'm hearing, most clinics (including mine) are still allowing WF products but not the Mio and other additions.

I asked about it and the only explanation I got was that they were trying to keep it "cleaner".

So, now even 0/0/0 items could be considered a "cheat"

Lisa, congratulations on being on summer break! I've been on it for a couple of weeks now, although I just started a bit of summer work with one grad student. But basically I'm on Summer Schedule, and it's great!!! You deserve some days to relax and waste a little time doing things that make you feel good. (Shopping, for example...)

I've got one more week and a half at home before I start some travels. Right now I'm catching up on reading, going to yoga and swimming, doing some projects, and just relaxing. It's great!

Also, I want to thank you for posting the new protocol sheets. Even though I'm on maintenance now, it really helps to see the new sheets and the info. I'm also kind of "coaching" a few people, so this helps tremendously!

Enjoy the day, everyone!

alas...its a blessing to be home.

we did have some good moments...
seeing nigels mum & dad
high tea at the lady dowagers house again for the 2nd year, (from downton abbey tv series)
hours in a hydrotherapy pool
visiting st michaels mount

we did have some not so good moments....
me falling down the stairs and twisting my ankle the day before we left and having to travel with a foot brace and a walking cane
nigel in the hospital one day
nigels mum taking a fall
losing the key to the holiday cottage
extreme airplane turbulence on flight over to england, had to redirect flight even and made us 2 hours late(pilot of 38 yrs said it was the worse he has ever flown in)
1.5 hour delay stuck in small commuter plane on runway in dallas texas heat and no air conditioning during severe lightening storm
me having the flu 3 days with high temps but still having to press on with business

needless to say....its good to be home.

Joysh: You're so welcome!

Rainbow: Wow! Quite eventful trip. I'm glad you're home, too.

I went to one of my favorite charitable re-sale shops today and learned that on Tuesdays there is a 25% discount for folks 50+. So, I bought some new-to-me items and spent 25% less (or spent more...depending on how you look at it, since I was only looking for khaki capris and ended up with several tops, as well). I was thinking I'd be in a smaller size by now but the last 2 months have been slow like molasses weigh-loss-wise (hence the cycling thru the phases).

I made Amberjules' Shepherd's pie last nite. I'm cooking more for P2
P1 is convenient!
