Oh yeah - from the panko thread in fabulous foods! I dipped some zucchini slices in egg and then rolled them in whole wheat panko (very crunchy breadcrumb stuff), then baked them until crunchy. It's been so long since I've had a "real" onion ring - they taste like crunchy onion rings to me (especially when I dip them in ketchup). Mmmm crunchy goodness.

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Wasn't able to post my Sat/Sun meals b/c I was out of the house the whole weekend, but I did good. The girls both had terrific competitions! Woohoo!

This morning was weigh in day, I lost 3.5 lbs! Only 4.5 more until I can get under 200, yippee!

***will edit to add meals later***

B-I had to make more pumpkin pancakes b/c they were just so delicious last time. 2 pumpkin pancakes topped w/ one apple cut up and a couple tbsps walnuts that I cooked in a pan w/a spray of canola oil spray and a little cinnamon so they were all soft and warm, kind of like apple pie! It was a delicious breakfast w/coffee and soymilk-I'm already at 4 for just one meal!

L-tomato roasted red pepper soup w/ spinach and garbanzo beans and sesame crackers

S(2 pm)-yogurt

S(6 pm)-kids clif bar

D(9 pm)-I made a whole wheat crust pizza (bought some organic dough), topped w/tomatoes, spinach, baby bella mushrooms, broccoli, some olives, a drizzle of evoo, and some real parmesian reggiano cheese (just a teensy bit), I had 2 slices and a tangelo---the best part is that I have enough left over for 3 more meals of it!

Dessert-88 calories of dark chocolate bar-I got the 82% and it's just a little bit bitter for me so next time I will buy the 75% instead I think

Hi Everyone!! I am gonna jump in on this one. Here is a little history on me...yo-yo dieter...maybe I should say more like bunjee dieter since the wieght "swings" have been 50 pounds or more.

Recently: Jan 21, 2008 I started Flat Belly Diet. I like it, but just felt it had something missing. Joined 2FC in February. Stumbled on Glory's story and was amazed...and INSPIRED!!! I started doing more reading on SUPERFOODS. Then ordered "Superfoods RX" from Amazon and a super food companion cook book. I am hooked!!! I must confess I think of Glory's story nearly everyday.

Since January 21 I have gone from 300 pounds to 276. My blood pressure is down. I have been working out and I feel FABULOUS!!! I started eating Superfoods and want to tell the world about it!!!! Much to my surprise I found I LOVE Salmon and Sweet Potatoes. the only way I had ever had Salmon before was from a can...the thought still gives me shivers. But wild caught sockeye salmon fillets, cooked with a small amount of lemon garlic oil and shallots....I could eat that EVERYDAY!!! Sweet Potatoes....Well I found some in the produce dept all peeled and cubed, I stir fry those with broccoli slaw, matchstick carrots, shallots, red, orange and yellow peppers and toss with brown rice YUMMY!!!

I am slowly converting my whole family. I have Glory to thank for that!!!

So for today, so far....

B-Oatmeal, orange, soy milk, tea

L- Salad with Spinach and Romaine, Albacore Tuna, Broccoli slaw, grape tomatoes. Dressing made with 1 T Nasoy, 1/2 tsp honey, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp dijon mustard. 1 cup strawberries 1 cup Stoneyfield Farms Low Fat French vanilla yogurt, 2 Tablespoons chopped walnuts.

Supper tonight will be Chicken Breast, Brown Rice, & Sweet Potatoes I think the only I missed today was beans.

B-coffee/soymilk, 2 pumpkin pancakes topped w/1 cinnamon apple and walnuts

L-2 pieces whole wheat veggie pizza(tomato, spinach, broccoli, baby bella mushrooms, olive), a tangelo

S-tea/kid clif bar

D-veggie stir fry (zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, celery, broccoli, baby bella mushrooms), soba noodles (buckwheat) a splash of soy sauce and a drizzle of honey

On a side note, it's Spring break for the girls and so today I accidentally slept in until 8:45 am - yikes! I thought I'd wake up around 7:30 which is an acceptable time for sleeping in, I guess I'll have to set my alarm for tomorrow, lol!

Wow, Kate that is awesome! Congrats on your 13 super foods yesterday, heh I'm so glad you are happy and feeling better and losing weight - your experience sounds a lot like mine. I was literally AMAZED how good whole foods tasted - salmon and sweet potatoes are 2 of my favorites too.

For me, since I packed all the same lunches on Sunday and I made enough spinach filling for 2 nights - exactly the same as yesterday! Weee! Oh wait, I used a different KIND of yogurt, that makes it very very different! ha

Breakfast - 1/2 Nature's Path pumkpkin flax cereal, Trader Joe's fat free Greek Yogurt with Honey

Snack - 4.4 oz blueberries

Lunch - spinach, 90 calories of chicken breast, grape tomatoes, shredded carrot, chopped red onion, 1/5 chopped red pepper, broccoli slaw, organic bbq sauce, a tiny bit of an avocado (1/2 split among 5 salads) and a few pieces of roasted sweet potato

Snack - tangelo

Ha check out this thread!
Recently discovered Panko

In my grocery store (which is just a plain jane, low rent, not fancy place) it is with the regular bread crumbs. Some folks have found it in the Asian food aisle. I also found it online at amazon.com!

Well, tofu in its natural state is disgusting (in my opinion) it basically tastes like NOTHING. That can be positive, though, since tofu really soaks up the flavor of whatever it's marinated in. I make a fabulous orange/miso marinade that is great for tofu stir fry. I haven't made that in ages, I should do that!

I only like 2 kinds of tofu:

Silken - which I use to make dips.

Very very very firm cutlet style - which has a great texture and holds up well for stir frying. House cutlet style is the brand I buy. I used to only be able to get it in Asian grocery stores, but my regular grocery store has recently started carrying it, which is awesome.

I've heard people say they buy tofu and then do complicated stuff like press it to get a good texture - I just don't have the patience for that.

One thing I personally can't stand is "scrambled tofu" but some people really really love it. It's just a combination of weird texture and no taste that bugs me. But, I'm not a HUGE fan of scrambled eggs either.

Tofu is my hardest super food to fit in, I do like it in stir fries, but it's just not one of my usual food staples. I buy the super firm stuff, marinate it for a couple of hours. While my stir fry vegetables are stir frying, I'll usually sear the tofu in a pan and then add it to the vegetables at the last minute (so it gets a little crispy around the edges).

Edamame counts too, which I adore, I should eat more of that!
