Default Phase 1 Chick Check - August 11 Onwards

Sorry Moderators, I didn't notice any new thread for Phase Oners this week and if I'm out of bounds posting another one, I apologize in advance.

So, I'm on Phase 1, day 1, (for the 3rd time) and I did pretty well if I do say so myself. However, I would like to post my menus for anybody to critique and give me some constructive criticism.

Breakfast:
2 eggs scrambled in 1 teaspoon Smart balance margarine
2 slices turkey bacon
6 oz v8 juice

Snack:
few sticks of celery and 2 tablespoons garlic hummus

Lunch:
Salad with chopped deli turkey
2 tablespoons peppercorn ranch

Snack:
2 stalks of celery with 1 tablespoon of Smucker's natural PB (ingredients: peanuts and salt)

Dinner:
serving of Taco Bake (I added a can of tomatoes with chiles to it instead of the can of chiles in the recipe, and some powdered cayenne pepper)
2 tablespoons of reduced fat sour cream
3 tablespoons chipotle salsa


So now I'm full and really don't wish to eat anything else... oh crap. I just realized I have had no dairy today... the sour cream doesn't count, right? And the cheese on the taco bake is in a different group.

What should I do? I'm full right now. How are the rest of you Phase Oners doing?

Hanging in there! Day three of week two for me, following the book meal plan exactly but now that I have the hang of it I think I might start making some substitutions around my own personal tastes. So far feeling really good and very happy with my weight loss thusfar.

Mel, I usually drink a glass of milk with dinner, and since I've been home drinking it with lunch to get my dairy in! It also helps me to eat less at those meals!

For awhile I was buying cottage cheese and eating that plus the milk but a) it's cheaper just buying milk and b) when I add the sugar free jello to the cc I find Myself eating way too much dairy! oops!

AutumnRose, that's awesome to hear. Making substitutions based on your own tastes is the fun part imo.

Loriann, it's a good thing that I love skim milk. Last night before I went to bed, I drank about 1 3/4 cups of skim milk because after posting my menus I realized I had skipped the dairy for the day. I like cottage cheese; but mainly just with pineapple, and I can't have pineapple... wah.


Hi KO, how is that tzaziki? I saw some in the hummus section the other day, made by the makers of the hummus brand I like (Cedars). It looked really good, it was cucumber and garlic I think. I got the hummus though because I wasn't sure about it. I think I'm going to go get some tzaziki today because I really want to try it. Your menus sound really good as far as I can see. Yum!

Me: I'm eating breakfast right now, 2 strips of turkey bacon and 2 scrambled eggs cooked in cooking spray, and am about to go get my 6 0z of v8 juice. So nothing new there. I'm gonna make some coffee and use nonfat dry milk as my 'creamer' and some liquid skim milk to get some dairy servings in.

Nonfat dry milk is okay, right?

Actually wait, I'm gonna make some chocolate custard and have that for dessert, but I can still do that and have my milk in my coffee.

I have a question for you phase one ladies. I know you can have sugar free Jello, which I've been eating a fair amount. Would sugar free pudding work as well? I just happen to have a box in the cupboard and thought it would be a nice switch, on the label looks ok to me but haven't heard much about it....

Hi AutumnRose, I was very sad when I find out I could not have sf pudding on phase 1. However, there is a great chocolate custard recipe that I've been making to kill the cravings. It's pudding like, but a bit difficult to cook to perfection, but tonight I did very well. I'll post tomorrow if you're interested.

KO that dip sounds really good.. oh man, I wanna try it.

Blueskydreams, hi, don't worry, I am on my third go around on phase 1! You're definitely not alone.


My menu for today, Wednesday: (Any critiques are gladly welcomed)

Breakfast:

2 scrambled eggs and 2 slices turkey bacon
6 oz v8


Snack:

Celery & 2 tablespoons garlic hummus

Lunch:

Salad w/ sliced deli turkey, chopped tomato, 2 tablespoons peppercorn ranch, and a serving of peanuts on top

Snack:

Piece of cheese

Dinner:

Pork stirfry with porkchop strips, broccoli, and onion (Stirfry sauce was homemade with soy sauce, ginger, garlic, vinegar, and sesame oil)

Dessert: bowl of chocolate custard (eggs, skim milk, hershey's pure cocoa, and splenda)


But I'm hungry right now, what to do, what to do!

for faux chocolate pudding that is phase 1 friendly -

I mix plain, nonfat yogurt with splenda and cocoa powder. You can top it with sf ff whipped cream if you like. DS and I had this last night with blueberries on top (I'm on phase 2) - delicious!

KO - I made the cookies but they are a little dry and crumble easily. How did you change the recipe? I added a little cocoa powder but they are not very chocolaty. Do you think an extra egg would help?

They are definitely crumbly
1 cup PB
1 egg
1 tsp of vanilla (the org recipe calls for 1/2)
1/4 cup splenda
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Bake at 350 for 8-12 min depending on size
mine took 12 and made 15 cookies

They are definitely dense I want to get some SF flavored syrup to try in it to see if it makes it stick together more

thanks

I have SF syrup. It didn't occur to me to use that. (I have hazelnut) Now I am out of PB since I only had a small jar in the first place. It does seem that even though they are dry I have more of them than I should so maybe I shouldn't explore this too much! I may have to wait a week or so before making them again.
