Default It's MONDAY, June 18th!!! What are YOU eating today?

Phase 1: Week 16, Day 4

[email protected]: Spinach Smoothie
EAS Carb Control Chocolate RTD
Spinach & Lettuce
2 cups decaf coffee
1 Stevia packet

[email protected]: Soup
IP Potato Puree
4oz Chicken Broth
Celeriac & Mushroom Puree

[email protected]: Tapioca Pudding
IP Lemon Pudding
Miracle Noodles Rice

Mall [email protected]

[email protected]: Braised Pork Chops & Celery (inspired by yesterday's Chat)

The recipe I am working from: http://uktv.co.uk/food/recipe/aid/642684

Ingredients
4 cups chopped Celery (splitting with my husband, ~1 celery rib = 1/2 cup chopped)
Garlic
EVOO
Chicken stock
2 egg whites
1 lemon
2 pork chops

Directions:
1. For the braised vegetables: place the celery and 2 cloves chopped garlic into a large pan with some EVOO and a pinch of salt. Cook over medium heat for~5 minutes until the celery are slightly softened.
2. Pour in the chicken stock, just enough to cover veggies, and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10-15 minutes over a low heat, or until the vegetables are meltingly soft. Keep warm.
3. For the pork chops: season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan and add ~1-2 cloves chopped garlic. Add the pork chops and fry for 3-4 minutes on both sides, or until golden-brown all over and cooked through. Remove from the heat and set aside to rest.
4. Meanwhile, remove the braised celery and onions from the heat. Spoon the egg whites over some of the cooking liquid. Mix well to combine, then add lemon juice and lemon zest (I like to use all of the lemon!). Heat through gently for a few minutes (make sure the heat is not too high or the mixture will curdle). Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
5. To serve, spoon the braised celery and onions onto plates and rest the pork chops on top. Spoon over the rest of the sauce.

Welcome mom2hi!
I only count 3 IP food...or am I blind? And just FYI - I think the rutabaga fries are THE BOMB - me & hubby like them better than the turnip fries. It was a pleasant mistake when I picked up rutabagas instead of turnips (they were under mixed signs at the grocery) and were wondering what I did to make them taste better than the last batch.

Hey mom2hi! The only thing I would add is that we are allowed 1oz skim milk on IP, don't know if the cream is a mistype or not. Some folks use the Vanilla RTD as creamer as well. I couldn't do my coffee black which is why you see it in my morning spinach smoothie.

Repost from yesterdays thread - I'll try to remember to add this daily throughout June for folks who might have missed it. Not all of the recipes are 100% IP, but they can be easily adapted and modified.

I love freebies! for the month of June you can download a free PDF copy of the Miracle Noodles cookbook (regularly $29.99).

Getting good ideas for future days on IP! Thanks for the welcome and for the note regarding the cream. I asked my coach if I could have the cream instead of low fat milk and she said she'd let me try it...I hope it's not a mistake, but I just love cream in my coffee and measure 1T for all the cups of coffee I might drink.

She said we could try it and if my losses aren't up to par or if they slow down' I might have to drop it, but cream is fewer carbs than low-fat milk, so maybe I'll be okay?

So far, so good. Had my cappuccino for lunch (yummo!) and now getting ready to mix up my snack although I don't feel hungry at all.

I'm doing the My Fit Foods 3 day challenge.
Breakfast = Mike's Rise and Shine - 5:1 eggs, spicy turkey sausage & sweet potato cubes w/ cinnamon
Snack = Picnic - 3 slices of fuji apple, almond/cranberry mix, grapes & nut crisps
Lunch = Blazin' Cajun Shrimp - mini shrimp on top of dirty rice (brown rice, spicy turkey meat) and asparagus.
Snack = will be a hard boiled egg, apple slices, natural peanut butter.
Dinner = shrimp & chicken gumbo.

Honestly, its entirely too much food!!! However, I'm consuming the suggested 1550 - 1650 calories that my doctor suggested.

I am either walking, roller skating, freestyler scooting or doing some kind of exercise 4 - 5 days a week (picking it up from just doing 2 miles/day x 3 days a week).
