Ritiki, when you say you strain the tofu and leave it out for 6 hours do you mean out of the fridge?
What a great man!

I left mine out of the fridge. My veg friend that told me how to do it is VERY health conscious and has always done it that way and never had a problem. I also would occasionally switch out the towels if they seemed really wet with a dry one. It's amazing how much moisture you get out of it.
P.S. She did NOT recommend Silken and said it's too mushy.

Oops I didn't drain the tofu and I probably used way too much red pepper flakes. My husband took me out for dinner...salmon, veggies and salad so I didn't have my tofu marinade tonight but I looked at it when we got in...stuck my finger in the marinade and WOW hot stuff lol. When I took the Tofu out of the package it was already very dry, almost like a block of dry feta cheese.

I'm so happy for you Jordanna....what a good man you have there. Hard work has paid off for you. Hang on to him lol (I hear they are few and far between these days lol) !!

ksboo1,

just had to chuckle at your response to birman. I too, married a "detailed guy"! I enjoy looking at his wonderful spreadsheets, but wouldn't have the first clue how to make one myself. I'm a creative type and can't be bothered with that level of detail. We're total opposites. He's left brain, I'm right brain.

Breakfast: Vanilla pudding or cappuccino drink
Lunch: Chocolate pudding & bok choy soup or cucumber salad
Dinner: 5 oz of meat/ 2 cups of select veggies
Snack: Either butterscotch pudding or Raspberry Jello

I also drink 112 oz of water a day and take all the prescribed vitamins plus the omegas and vitamin D
I so admire you and others for staying away from the restricted things. I'm not that self-displined yet. I have a bar at least once a day. Kinda my way of not feeling deprived I guess.

By the way, so excited for you that your hubby noticed and that he keeps looking! Keep up the good work girl!

I've been doing the same thing. This morning I put it all in the blender with ice and made myself a frappucino - I was needing a Starbucks fix!

Default Leek Soup

I'll let you know how I like it when I get the courage to try it. I'll send you the Stevia, no problem!
At the risk of being ostracized by the entire group, I feel I must speak up in defense of the much maligned leek soup. It is smooth and creamy, pleasant to look at, and provides a buoyant substance in which to mix other vegetables and spices. It has also helped me lose weight faster than any other diet food I've tried. So, in spite of its imperfections, I can't help having a soft spot in my heart for the lowly leek soup, and I would be happy to provide a loving home for any stray packages currently being ignored-or worse-in your kitchen cupboards.
