you can't stop inventing recipes and get so excited at creating kale flatbread or rhubarb flatbread or zuchini flatbread....and want to tell people how great they are but they think you are nuts. and you don't care!

you go out to eat and get excited because the wait staff are willing to not put cheese in your salad, and add good vegees instead, and... because the owner of the restaurant happens to be on IP too, she brings you a WF packet!

...the idea of making zucchini taste like baked apples is totally normal

I know I'll have more, but feel free to add your own!!

1 large zucchini
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 pinch salt
2 packets sweetener (like Truvia or Splenda)
1 tsp or more Apple Pie Spice (You can also make your own with recipe below)
1 tsp vanilla or 1 TB Starbucks Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup

Directions:

1. Cut zucchini into circular disks, then cut in half to make apple slices
2. Toss together zucchini, lemon juice and salt. Place mixture into frying pan and cook until tender-crisp.

Note: If you are concerned about using so much lemon juice, you can cut it to 2TB. It will still taste great, but won't have a "syrupy" texture. Just make sure not to dry out when baking.

3. Midway through cooking the zucchini, add in the spices, sweetener, and vanilla.
4. Lightly spray a glass pie pan with cooking spray. Lay down the zucchini pies like a pie. Drizzle over the top any extra lemon juice.
5. Bake in oven at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 15-30 minutes until done. (taste at 15 min. Less time is crisp apple. More time is soft apple)

Note that the lemon juice can be quite strong. You can add a bit more sweetener to cut the sour. I use the Sugar-Free Vanilla syrup to raise the sweetness without the risk of too much of the sweetener packets.

Apple Pie Spice:
Ingredients:
•1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
•1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
•1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

You, guys, are great! It's so true and so funny.

A few more:

You see people on the street and mentally put them into "IP material" and "doesn't need a diet".
You know all restrooms on your way to work. You even know where's the key at each Rite Aid or Starbucks.
It's normal for your friend to text you at 3am in the morning with the question "How did you do on your weigh in?", because there's a time difference and nobody cares. You do the same for her.
You try to predict how much you can lose by the end of the month, then by the end of the week, then you divide by days. There's constant Math in your head.

lol all these things are so true!

You want to tell every friend you have that is overweight about IP

You see someone failing at another diet and can't shut your mouth about IP

You want to brag constantly about how much weight you've lost

Since my weigh ins are on saturday, I had a "great!" weekend if I had a good loss

Your cupboard is full of little silver packets.. and they're in order and organized..

You get mad at how the person you told about zucchini french toast gave you a disgusted look.. it's so good though..

You have tons of IP recipes and even duplicates all over your kitchen

Great thread!!!

-You feel guilty when you have communion at church
-The fridge door doesn't shut because there is too many veggies in there
-You have dreams about eating a certain food and feel bad about it the next morning
-You can discuss IP with someone on IP for hours and hours
-You google IP recipes constantly but always eat the same thing
-You carry your homemade salad dressing everywhere you go
-You fantasize all day about eating your «chocolate bar» for your evening snack

..... when you obsess about whether or not to drink 1 oz of SKIM MILK!

..... when your absolutely rivetted to your computer, studying the archived IP receipe files for hours on end.

..... when checking out possible 000 food options becomes a favorite online hobby.

..... when you're no longer irritated by having to frequently pee - day or night. Instead you consider it a 'fat flush blessing'.

..... when you have to stop and think about how long ago you drank that last glass of water - and whether you can make it to the grocery store in time, before needing another pee break. (Thank goodness there's a BR at the grocery store, and you make a pitstop there a routine part of your grocery shopping routine these days

..... when you think that a glass of club soda with MIO and lots of crushed ice tastes just as good as a glass of wine... (really).

I LOVE THIS THREAD! I KEEP BELTING OUT LAUGHING!

You panic when you realize you forgot to buy more pancake mix and have only 1 packet left and immediately place a huge order for more so this can't possibly happen again (despite having boxes of oatmeal, crispy soy cereal, puddings, soy crisps, 8 boxes of soup...)
