Jen~ nope not magic (I dont think)
But I can honestly say Ive never craved broccoli!!
Big kudos for coming here to post instead of snacking in the kitchen!!
Anne~ Yah for making it to dance without any issues! I love the computer distractions for keeping me away from food that I dont need. I like to play a game on msn games called flowers....keeps me out of the kitchen!!
Your comment about using the allergy as a justification for my plan of choice had me thinking all morning. I still dont know the answer
Ive known for years (12ish yrs now) that low carb has been the absolute best way of eating for me. I dont crave sugars, I feel absolutely wonderful, my eczema is a rare thing, I havent filled my asthma inhaler meds since May of '04, I dont get those crusty cracking heel issues....and many many more pluses. So the wheat allergy seems to be another thing that Ive noticed, and another reason why my food plan choice is smart.
It isnt a bad allergy, more of an uncomfortable thing....so that when Im eating properly I notice the little things I used to think were just part of my eating poorly.
Jusitification? Yes and No, but definitely solidifies my choices as being smart
Thanks for making the think about that one
ChinaMaine~ I dont know if soya has wheat, I'll have to check the ingredients. I think once I get all the other stuff out of my system, the little bit in the soya sauce shouldnt be an issue. Seems the big hunks of it are ver noticable.
Bill~ BIG Kudos for turning down the "candy pusher" (I love that title
) Its so much harder to turn down the quality stuff. That cheapy stuff is easy (usually). Good going! Let us know how succesful you are at getting your new cooking "tools".
LisaMarie~ good idea! Id be willing to share some of my response cards. Id like to see it here so I can find it all month....maybe we can start after Bill posts the February thread?
onebyone~ Good luck at your show!!! I think you'll do great!
Things I do to bump up my protien.... one protein serving at each meal. Protein shake for breakfast (every single morning) Or eggwhite omlettes when Im out of protein powder. Lunches also always have protein, soups have had shredded chicken or egg whites for protein. Tuna, salmon are also in my lunch menus. Also I'll have the greek yogurt instead of that other lowfat crap that you get now. The yogurt I have is fat free and has 14 grams of protein! Dinner...a serving is suppose to be 3oz....I usually eat 4-6oz(sometimes more) of protein with my veggies. Cheese is another way to sneak in a few more grams. Different cereals have protein...Kashi go lean crunch is awesome and I think (but not positive) it adds another 7grams of protein.
I eat so much chicken, Im surprised I dont have feathers and cluck!
Im off to get some grocery shopping done today. Some food planning for next week. I think Id might like a different soup.
Have a great day everyone!
