Sue - What the COD told me was that splitting the veggies to combine them was a no no. If I have four different veggies at dinner and count them as four whole veggies, that's ok. It's when you have a 1/4 carrot, 1/4 tomato, 1/4 celery and 1/4 lettuce and call it one veggie that they were fussing.

That being said, if you go to a restaurant in their guide and you have a salad, I think they count it that way, and let's get real - we didn't get fat eating veggies (that's what I always tell them). I think they general gist of it is to spread out your exchanges so you're not piling everything in at one meal (especially at night). And when you get to maintenance, the first thing you get in unlimited veggies. I wouldn't stress about the veggie thing, but if you stall, maybe ask COD their opinion. I am BY FAR not the LAWL expert!!!!

I'll say it again - we did not gain our weight from eating veggies.

Deb said on another thread that she thinks it's okay to combine veggies that are measured the same way. You're not supposed to combine tomatoes with peppers and carrots. I don't know. As I said on that thread (remember I'm new) I've been doing stir frys 3-4 times a weeks with frozen stir fry mixes and dh hasn't gotten in trouble. He did hear about it when we had pasta two days in a row but the sauce was homemade from fresh tomatos (my first try at it) and it was amazing! I canned 12 quarts of it for later and plan on making more this week. (I was complaining about too many tomatos but not anymore!) YUM!

It was YUMMY! It felt sooooo sinful! I will post the recipe, but basically you pound a chicken breast really thin, put in a half slice of RF swiss, tie it up (we used toothpicks), and cook in a skillet. You make a sauce of white wine, RF butter and low sodium chicken broth. It works out to 1/4c chicken broth, 1T wine and 1/4T butter per chicken breast so I counted it as a C (or even 2C)

Cassi,
I bet these ham rolls with laughing cow would be awesome if you used a lettuce leaf and rolled it a the base. Kind of light lettuce wraps. Thanks for the idea!

Cassi - You're not alone! I just think our menu is boring this week because I'm not "cooking" like I usually do!

Breakfast
EB omelet with 1T scallions and green peppers 1P
1/2 WW english muffin with ICBINB spray 1S 1C
canteloupe 1F

LL
Peach 1F


3/4 C cottage cheese with fresh peach diced in it 1P 1F
Rice Cake 1S
Green Beans 1V
Tomato wedges 1V

LL
Apple 1F

1/2 chicken breast in Mrs. Dash Chipotle Marinade 1/2P
Lettuce 1V
1 cup peppers, onions, celery 1V
Lite salad dressing 1 C


I made the tuna recipe posed last week for yesterday's lunch. The flavor was good but dh hated the consistency! Said it was like eating baby food. I thought it was a pate'. Oh well, you can take the boy out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the boy! Gotta luv him. I'll make it next time without using the food processor. (Mine is an industrial for my catering so it may have been TOOOO powerful for tuna. It really was pulverized!)

The Mrs. Dash marinade was good but has an orangey flavor that I don't like with the chipotle flavor. I've got a $2 coupon, so I'm gonna try another flavor.

Pearl - When I had my tonsils out a number of years ago, my mom made me chicken salad in the food processor so that I could swallow it. I loved it so much, that's how I make my chicken and tuna salad now. The "real" way I make the tuna salad is the tuna and mayo, a slice or two of onion, some fresh ground black pepper, a little salt, and then the secret ingredient is McCormick's fried chicken seasoning (I think they changed the name to "original chicken seasoning"). I stopped using it because of the sodium content, but I stilll use it here and there. That's why the paprika and garlic powder is in there.
