Thanks for starting us off this week!

I had a few iffy meals over the weekend, but didn't let the meals spiral into the whole day/weekend, and kept up with the exercise. So overall I think it went pretty well.

Wt: 169.2

B: Overnight protein oats (Oats, chia, vanilla protein, peanut butter, almond milk, fresh blueberries)
L: Lunch got provided for us and I had a few Thai dishes. No noodles, and wasn't going to have any rice, until one of the dishes turned out INSANELY HOT. Wound up eating about 1/4 cup coconut rice to cool down my mouth.
Sn: Babybel & V8.
S: Brown rice wrap with a turkey meatloaf muffin, hummus, yogurt cheese, spinach, and a little mozza.
SF: NSA Chocolate pudding.
Ex: Insanity (Cardio Recovery & Fit Test)

Emma, how are you making cocoa roasted nuts. I was so sad to read the ingredient list in the store bought ones. Can anything just be pure anymore?

P3

1: cinnamon scrambled eggs; whole wheat pumpkin muffin (from the P2 dessert recipe section -- it is a bread recipe, I just made it into muffins and didn't make the orange cream cheese); coffee
2: tuna salad in lettuce boats
3: carrots and hummus
4: chicken cheesesteak saute, roasted zucchini
5: yogurt and berries?

mmmm, cocoa-roasted nuts are GOOD. Probably too good
I discovered them pre-made (Emerald brand, sweetened with Splenda), and after I devoured pretty much the entire canister (probably 16 servings or so!) I discovered corn starch was an ingredient. Not sure how much, but still I figured I could easily make the same without cornstarch.

I have tried it the easy way (just spray raw nuts with a coating of canola oil and the dust with a cocoa powder/sweetener of choice) and the more difficult, messy way (coat the nuts in an egg white wash first) - although I have never gotten the results just right (a lot of coating doesn't stick), they are still really good!! I toast them in my toaster oven at 350F for around 7 or 8 minutes. Some will start to crack when they are ready.

Here is one recipe that comes close to what I do (she uses water instead of oil and combines it all in a shake-n-bake method)

I have done this frequently with almonds and with soy nuts (pre-roasted so they don't take very long at all).

Just make sure to divide up into serving sizes so you don't eat the whole shebang in a sitting, as I am prone to doing

Phase 1.5?

B - Coffee with us coconut milk. "Cake batter" smoothie
L - Homemade chili with TVP and multicolored peppers. White tea.
S - Cucumber-Greek yogurt salad. Roasted seasoned seaweed (YUM! The only ingredients are seaweed, oil and salt - 1.6 g fat - 30 cal and 30% USRDA for Vitamin A and 20% for Vitamin C )
D - Grilled shrimp on Romaine lettuce salad with flaxseed oil/lemon juice vinaigrette. Broccoli eggwhite "souffle" (more like a quiche/custard).
dessert - ?

[I added it up: 5-6 cups veggies, depending on how I count the lettuce. 124g protein - wow!]

Those sound good! I might just make them one serving at a time. I have no control with nuts and chocolate.
