For me:
Breakfast: 1 slice of toast and 2 eggs
Lunch: Padthai of veggies without the noddles.
Dinner: chicken cilli with homemade croutons.

I had a bit of a crazy day yesterday-running around everywhere and even got into a little trouble. There is a lady at my church who invites all her "friends" over to get their hair cut and then has a hair dresser come over. She has this beautiful mansion on the beach. She serves hor d'oerve's, wine. I got my hair cut yesterday. Had a few things that were not........sonoma friendly.

B: shredded wheat n bran, banana, low fat milk, sugar free latte
L: soy citrus scallops, brussel sprouts
S: slice of whole grain toast with peanut butter and low sugar strawberry preserves
D: a variety of hor d'oerve's, hot spiced cider with a little brandy.....then when I came home I had a cup of low carb hot chocolate and tunisian orange, date, and pistachio salad.

Me today
Breakfast: Glass of milk, 2 eggs with low fat cheese and green pepper.
Lunch: Stir fry of green veggies with chicken and a portion of rice noodle (vermicelli)
Dinner: A pita wrap with chicken salsa, sour cream peppers and cheese.

I guess I've missed a little. I was just teasing you Zofia. I see Sarah lost her weight and has been eating more fish. Hope you don't gain it all back while your in Ireland. Have a good time. I lost 2 more lbs this week so I guess I'm doing okay. Slow and steady wins the race or so they tell me.

Here is yesterday:
B: Canadian bacon and egg pita pocket, sugar free latte
L: roasted vegetable couscous with chickpeas and pinenut topping
D: curried lamb and carrots, strawberries with mascarpone cheese (this was great)

Today:
B: irish oatmeal, honey, raisins, walnuts, sugar free latte
L: roasted vegetable couscous with chickpeas and onion pinenut topping
D: curried lamb and carrots with couscous, tunisian orange, date, and pistachio salad.

I am new to this diet..

I am a diet hopper I guess. I was on the weigh watchers, then switched
to Core WW, and now am trying out Sonoma.
I am 144(need to change ticker)and would like to be 130.
Mostly I just want to eat really healthy. I already favor the good foods.
My weakness is not sweets ,but fast food is a temptation when I am running errands and hungry.

I like the looks of this diet because I want to be heart healthy
(lots of family heart disease ) and because I really love almost all the
foods it recommends.

One big challenge I have is that my husband is a very basic meat and potatoes
man.. I am trying to find healthy meals that we can both eat ..sigh...

ps ..the posts with menus are REALLY helpful to see how the diet translates into real life menus...

Hi Nancy,

Welcome to the thread & good luck with the diet. Mediterranean/Sonoma is a nice diet to follow because really all that you are depriving yourself of is processed/refined fatty stuff.

I hear you on the fussy significant other situation, I have something similar here.. an Italian boyfriend who will eat nothing but pasta, bread, and cheese. Sometimes he'll cook beautiful food for us, risottos, pastas etc but he's not on a health kick like I am so I just had to draw a line and start cooking seperate things for me. Today at lunch I made stir fry vegetables for my lunch, while he sat and ate a whole block of brie and a french baguette! If that's the way it has to be then that's the way it has to be. I dread to think the size I'd be if I ate the way he did!

If your hubby is a meat and potatoes guy then I think it should still be easy enough to follow the plan.. I wish you the very best

Sarah
