Default On Plan Thread: Nov. 29-December 5!

t's time for a new week of talking On-Plan! This is the place for South Beach meal plan and food support, encouragement and questions.

Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!
This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.

Because people from different parts of the plan are posting here, it'll help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!
While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?
___________

I'm back on track. Today is day 4 of my being on plan since Thanksgiving!

Phase 2

Water: 8 cups
Oranges: 2
Grapes: 15
Green beans and a piece of chicken

Cyndi - Don't you LOOOOVE veganomicon? Vegan on the Cheap is also a great cookbook that I've been loving lately. People come in my kitchen and think we're vegan based on the cookbooks I have, and really, they are just really healthy. It's easy to unveganfy them if I want as well

-
P2

1: greek yogurt (the new athenos brand - so so), ezekiel toast w/ .5 tsp. almond butter and a few frozen berries, tea.
2: sweet potato, kale and lentil soup
3: hot tea, apple, string cheese
4: pinto beans, veggie tbd

exercise: 45 min. running, 45 min. kickboxing/step combo class

woo hoo! Lots of lentil soup going on around here! I made some with a whole pound of lentils and I'm the only one eating it, so guess what you are going to see on my plan every day . I made mine in the crockpot with butternut squash chunks, which just melted into the soup, and at the end added diced orange pepper. I used Imagine veggie stock (I think I read about it at Kath Eats Real Food) which is great for a soup like this, since it has carrots in it. Yum!

I'm not at home, so I need to run out and by more veggies and fruit. Making do with what I have for now.

B - coffee with lowfat milk. 1 cup nonfat cottage cheese (rinsed) with 1 mandarin orange and a sprinkle of mixed nuts.
L - Lentil soup with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a fried egg on top. With hot sauce! Romaine lettuce salad. Cup of tea.
S - broccoli and orange pepper slices with spicy hummus
D - curried tuna over multigrain pilaf. I think I will add veggies to this, depending on what I find at the market
dessert - 2 small squares super-dark (85%) chocolate

Hello all! After too many pieces of pumpkin pie, I'm back on track this morning. I have decided to count calories as well as do SB. This may be a struggle to get in the recommended amt of calories, after everything I am still at under 1000. Any suggestions?

B: 2 hardboiled eggs; 2 cups coffee w/ 2 TBSP ff half and half
S: 2 celery stalks
L: salad (homemade cranberry sauce, turkey, cukes. tomato, rf feta, lettuce), 1/2 c cottage cheese; 1/2 bell pepper
S: 1 oz nuts
D: Red wine chicken (has tomatos) and 1/2 sweet potato
S: tea

starstup, i have the same issue. get in more calorie dense items - nut butters, olive oil, etc. etc. I even use full fat greek yogurt if my day is looking light. how about some turkey bacon with breakfast, or some yogurt? what about some peanut butter or laughing cow with your celery? hummus is pretty calorie dense too. You don't seem to be having a lot of food in general, so it might be hard to get your calories up there.

Emma - have you tried the sweet potato, kale and lentil soup that UNT posted? It's awesome. I make it once a week and eat on it for lunches. Even my kids love it. I used green lentils for the last batch instead of brown and it made a lot of difference, i like the green lentils a lot more.

SO I jumped back in full force today and after breakfast of beans and lunch of veggies and cabbage I may not be able to do the dinner of beans this evening! My stomach is sooo upset with me! I don't remember having quite this much nausea with p1 before... also the rumble is making me think I may not need to stray to far from the bathroom! Oy, sorry I know its TMI, but any suggestions on a nice p1 dinner that may keep my belly a bit happier? If not I will probably just have some veggie broth for dinner.lol

Broth is a nice choice, some type of soup would help your tummy a bit!

My mom always makes lentil soup for upset tummies. Don't know if it really works but it's always what I want

Tallandthin - Did you check the ingredients on the ff sour cream? The brands I've seen around here all have sugar and starches added. I've given up and use Greek yogurt instead.
