Thank you Rainbow! Welcome back!! I have missed all the colors and embellishments :hug:

I found rhubarb for $1.99 a lb today. It was beautiful and fresh, I must have bought 10 pounds. I got it washed, cut, and in the freezer. I'm tempted to go back and get more. Of course I had to microwave a bowl to test it out, it was delish!

i have been trying to come up with a recipe for rhubarb strawberry pudding...using EAS strawberry protein shake...and frozen rhubarb....but have not tried anything yet. i am still trying to formulate in my head...to use gelatin...or what to use to thicken it. any ideas??

A1Texan 06-01-2013 10:48 PM

I'm so jealous! Have not been able to find fresh that is actually ripe and the frozen is proving elusive. But that's it - we're going hunting tomorrow and I WILL have my rhubarb!

I'm purposely NOT using protein pudding.
That way it can just be a veggie and a side.
It would certainly work WITH the strawberry pudding

Here's what I did:
8 c chopped rhubarb (I'm using fresh right now...it is in season!)
1/2 c water
in the microwave til soft

Put it in the Vitamix with 1-2 Pks knox gelatin (I actually used Great Lake bulk gelatin) One time I used 1 Tbsp and once I used 2. It was more "custardy" when I used one.

Add sweetener. I added stevia and Mio
Next time I'm using stevia and plain koolaid (or WF strawberry could work, I'm just trying to reduce splenda/sucralose)
Blend all in Vitamix
Pour into eight 1 c ramekins (mine are little dishes I got from Pampered Chef. They have lids)

Your description will be much cooler...pics and all!

I found mine at farmer's market.

Wow Halfagain. The coats are great! I just saw your (new?) signature pic for the first time. You look "half" again already.

Thanks! It's maybe a month old, but close enough to where I'm at right now size wise. I'm really tempted to get to 177 where I will be indeed halfagain :-)

As to the belly weight... it was partially why I stayed on P1 and made sure I got below my maintenance goal. I knew I wanted to allow a few lbs room for the 2-3 lbs of glycogen weight regain as I phased out, but I also still had more belly pudge than what I was happy with and it affected the way my slacks/jeans fitted. I've always put extra weight on around the middle part of my body - definitely an 'Apple' - and it was the last to leave me. That extra 3-5 lbs seemed to flatten my tummy area, and it made quite a difference. I guess that's why it frustrates me so much now to see those few lbs back there again. But they won't be there for long! A P1-P2 style eating plan for a few weeks will solve that problem.

Thanks :hug: I expect I'll get below goal at least 3 pounds, that is if my averages still hold true. If not, I'm still going to phase off, I should still loose a bit in P2 I figure.

Yakima Fruit Market was where I found it. I hope that helps. The different varieties look different. The type I found today had a lot of green to the stalks, my Mom's is more red throughout with some green at the ends. Earlier this year the selection in the grocery store was very thin, which I don't think was mature enough, but this stuff at the fruit market was really nice.

I read the first harvest is the reddest. Subsequent harvests are less red

We had planned on hitting the Farmers Market tomorrow and if there's none there we still have several stores we haven't hit yet. All this talk of rhubarb has me hungry for it now!

joysh 06-02-2013 12:09 AM

Gee, I haven't had rhubarb since I was a little girl and my mother used to make it. Now I'll have to look for it and try it!

Hi to all of you! Welcome back, Rainbow! How was England?
