Alix,

The watermelon jam sounds really interesting... and yes, we'd love it if you could share your recipes.  Fresh and homecooked meals are always the best tasting and healthiest!

I want to know how to make chocolate cake with sweet potatoes!

Breakfast was my power drink, followed by a couple of cups of Genmaicha green tea

Today, Christmas dinnner was:

curried lamb loin chops
fresh green beans, steamed with red onions and butternut squash, tossed with olive oil/crushed garlic

Later this evening, (supper) I'll eat a baked sweet potato with ghee and chinook salmon and a couple of toasted rice cakes with almond/walnut butter



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Hi,

I have just put the recipe of the sweet potatoe+chocolate cake in the recipes. It needs  a couple of days to be checked by the site.
I will write the watermelon jam and the muffins recipes later because I have to translate them -not so easy  -

Lola, yes everything is home made. I like  cooking and French food is ....not so bad

My naturopath gave me a sheet on what they use to flavor ice creams...........just say YUK!!  Pretty much keeps me away from it. Even the "great" ice creams have cr** in them.

Alix you should just make it easier on yourself and write a cookbook

entitled

Les recettes d'Alix
O fabuleux de la France

French cookbooks always sell well here in America, just think about how popular french fries are

I am very, very new both to the board and this lifestyle idea...  Would love opinions on how things appear to those with more experience.  I need to work on *volume* as well as compliancy.  And more veggies (yuk).  Right now I'm so enamoured of being able to eat fruit wtihout my blood sugar going through the roof (it's doing REALLY well!) that I'm splurging a little.  Been 'fruitless' for the better part of three years...

breakfast: cherry/apple/cranberry juice 2 slices Ezekiel raisin bread with ghee, coffee with half-and-half(I know THAT's gotta go--not *quite* there yet! )

snack: 1 tbsp peanut butter dipped in raisins

mid-day--before work:  1 cup lowfat cottage cheese with 2tbsp apricot all fruit spread

snack: grapes, a couple of figs, an apple

supper: lentil soup with 1/2cup brown rice, beet & sweet potato chips
dessert: black cherry spritzer

if I need more snack tonight it'll be grapes, cherries or figs.

Seeing it typed out--very few veggies today.  Bad me.  The lentil soup had a bit of spinach.  I don't *like* veggies much.  I'm coming over to this from Atkins, so it's an interesting change.

Today I thought I would make something with beans. So I bought one of those cans from the brand Eden, with pinto beans. I made broccoli and green beans and afterwards I mixed the beans in. Or so I thought.  
I opened the can and the substance in it looked like cat food. I was expecting nice mushy beans, but no. I did put it in with the veggies.
All I can say it was quite gross.........

Ah well. Maybe I will have lost some more weight tomorrow.

ten,
I just spotted your post on your days menu.)

I see too much sugar, carbs, starch..etc and very little veggies and protein!
I d up the allowed protein and veggies and also drop the morning coffee all together for starts.

your weight will begin to drop in no time.

I did not have breakfast today.  (I'm still trying to recover from flu/bronchitis/nasal congestion...and I've been resting a LOT, so, I'm actually not quite that hungry.)

For lunch I had LOTS of

fried onion....

(I was looking for a recipe for a batter to make fried onion rings, and they all had avoids, so, I made a batter with water, spelt, egg whites and a little salt, and fried in a combination of olive oil, and rice oil.  Tasted interesting.  

4oz grass fed beef burger, fried, with garlic salt.

1/4 cup pineapple juice.

Haven't had dinner yet.

try a 'tempura' type batter for frying.

(the triple 1)
1c flour
1c water
1 egg
coat the onions with extra flour before dumping them in the batter.

I believe U2dan provided this one
Quoted Text
onion rings the same way i do when i oven fry turkey strips.

Coating:
brown rice flour
oat flour/bran (the little chunks make a nice crisp)
seasoned salt
garlic powder
(any other seasonings you like?)

1 egg and some milk to dip
(sorry i dont ever measure out, i just eyeball it)

Large onions sliced in rings

Dip the onions in the milk/egg mix, then into the breading. Place in a single layer on a non stick cookie sheet sprayed with olive oil (the pump sprayers come in handy!). Spray the top sides too before putting in the oven, then when ready place in a 350F oven until golden, and you may have to flip them to golden the other side too.

UPDATE: one may want to try double dipping hehee oh my how ILLEGAL of me!  Ha but seriosuly try diping the onion in the stuff..then dip back in egg and then coating a second time. I did it tonight and mmm mm

We found sweet potato starch in an Asian food market.

Shred them using the largest hole side of your grater.  We fry them in olive oil, with just one clove of garlic.

Rella - I thoroughly enjoyed your meal information.  I love cottage cheese but I thought it was an avoid for A type.  If I am wrong please let me know.  Would love the recipe for your apple salad.

Thanks again for all the information here.

some believe that draining your cottage cheese in a colander in the fridge, during the night, will get rid of all the excess whey it might contain, and thus make it a neutral.
