Talking Got the new CORE cookbook and food companion

The cookbook looks fabulous, lots of great recipes! I will share them as I make them and let you know how I like them. New dining out companion is slim pickings for those of us on CORE, you can basically eat a salad.........LOL!

I'm getting my at-home kit soon, I hope, Livvi, and it has the cookbook! Very anxious to get more ideas on what to eat on this program. The online guide to fast food is much the same: you can eat a salad! But I do think ordering a grilled chicken breast and vege and maybe brown rice if you can get it would work? Vege burgers are a big possibility, too!

I didn't see the cookbook at my meeting but I did pick up the new food book. It seems to have a bigger selection for ethnic foods (as far as flexpoints goes).

I guess doing Core all week and using the flexpoints for a meal out on the weekend might be the way to go for me

I was told at my meeting, that you shouldn't switch up for individual days, but rather weeks. So, you could do flex one week and core the next.

I think she meant she would use her 35 flex points on the Core Plan for eating out on weekends. That's what I plan to do--of course that means I gotta not use them during the week! I think you can also eat steak, baked potato, salad on the Core plan and use flex points for butter and full fat dressing if needed. Salad bars, which are also very filling for me, are also a good option. When DH and I eat out, that's what I ate on the points plan anyway. Couldn't see counting points for the food that was offered.

I had another thought! The guide probably just listed meals that were totally Core. But why couldn't you, for instance, eat a burger and count the bun as flex points? Even the fries if you can't live without them!

Livvi, yes! Keep us informed about the new cookbook... I've been wondering if it's worth buying. Are all the recipes in it 100% core??

I bought the cookbook, but I think the on-line recipes are better.

No core desserts though.
