And not enough protien



You got that right, Laura.  I did forget that I had a little canned salmon in the a.m. - but it was too "fishy" for me (prefer the wonderful fresh stuff we can get).  

This morning:

oatmeal w/ tiny bit blackstrap molasses, 4 dried plums, and 1/4 c. organic yogurt from Trader Joes (never would have come up with that combo normally, but it sounded good to me this morning)

and coffee with unsweetened soymilk (lots of soymilk with a smaller amount of very strong organic coffee -- oh man but I'm glad coffee is okay for A's!)

Just to keep this thread on the move;

I had dark rye toast spread with miso and ricotta cheese, sprinkled with chopped walnuts.

Wow. That sounds good. I have most of those ingredients (will sub goat cheese for ricotta).

Today I had:

Breakfast: oats and kiwi fruit with soy and natural yoghurt + 1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses

Lunch: Chicken + lentils + broc + cauli + carrot

Dinner: Omelette with parsely and sardines

1 soy decaf latte
2 apples
big handful of almonds
3 ryvita with peanut butter and molasses
3 carob and seed protein balls

Does it look like I had too many nuts/seeds on the menu today?

Well that is a lot of nuts, it just sort of depends on how many you had at each snack.  Your meal plan looks great though, I love having omlettes for dinner as well

It's just that nuts/seeds are so filling and satisfying and tasty. I do a lot of exercise so I find myself getting hungry every few hours...

Maybe I should munch on a few more carrots between meals...

Does anyone have any suggestions as to good between-meal snacks for type As?

Laura, omelettes are the best, aren't they?!

In between meals, I tend toward nuts and seeds and dried fruit. I eat so many vegies at meal time that often I want something "other". Sometimes I'll eat a bit of yogurt as an after dinner snack with a sprinkling of ground flax seeds and molasses.

For breakfast:

1 slice Ezekiel Bread with ghee
1/2 cup Ezekiel Cereal (Golden Flax) with blueberries and soymilk


morning snack:

fresh pineapple


Later today I plan:

Pinto Beans with chopped yellow onion on top
Collard Greens cooked in a little olive oil until tender (add water as needed)
Slice of Ezekiel Bread with ghee

Before Bedtime Snack:

Strawberry Shake made with frozen strawberries, soy milk and tofu mixed in blender, add sugar-free sweetener to taste and 1 tsp vanilla extract.  The tofu helps thicken the shake and adds lots of great protein!   I also add a few ice cubes to make it nice and cold.  Yummy!!!  (This is very filling and sometimes it is all I have instead of a 3rd meal.)

Ha!! funny you posted that, I made the exact same thing last night for us. DH said he wished he had some ice cream and I remembered I'd picked up some soft tofu to make some.  I used xylitol and veg glyc so there wasnt SO MUCH taste of either in it. It was very good. couldn't tell there was tofu in it. he asked what was in it and I wouldnt tell him cause I knew he wouldn't even try it. it did give him gas tho and i'm wondering if it was the xylitol as i've read it can do that. what kind of sweetener did you use diann?

I've found a really nice breakfast cereal at a new english HFS, calls itself 'Gluten free muesli'.
I wasn't happy about my other one as it was not really totally compliant - this one is much closer.
Ingrediants:
rice flakes, sultanas, roast buckwheat, millet flakes, raisins, chopped dates, sunflower seeds, currants, roasted hazelnuts, flaked almonds and cashew nuts (avoid but how many can you get in one serving?)

I'm really enjoying it!!!

I bought Nature Path's rice and millet cereal - was really happy to find it.  There's a big but though - millet is high on the glycemic index and I found my blood sugar levels way out of wack - made me tired and groggy, and of course . . . grumpy, etc.  Too bad, cause this was really crunchy and I miss crunchy.

OK - this is what I've been doing lately (if you have a highly addictive personality - don't try this at home).  

Coarsely chop some walnuts and pecans; add raisins/fruit sweetened cranberries; mix some cocoa powder with brown rice syrup (I like lots of syrup and cocoa) and a little bit of stevia.  Mix everything together and eat with a spoon!

This really hits my need for chocolate and for sweet - it is heavenly!!!

are you sure it is the millet that is bothering you?   rice is high glycemic, not sure on millet as it apparently hasn't been tested. that's not to say you can't tell how it affects *you*.    just a thought on the rice.
janet, that cereal sounds good, wonder how it rates re: diabetes    will have to have a look.
stormy, that mix sounds really good. i'm sure someone besides you will be enjoying it now that you've posted.  but goodness, lets not have any more pimples, eh, jenny     and all these years they thought pimples were just for teenagers.

Yes, I'm sure it's the millet - the type base mentions that it has high glycemic levels; I eat rice cakes all the time without any effect on my energy levels.

I've been chopping up walnuts, mixing in some runny peanut butter and Cadburys drinking chocolate powder (relatively inoffensive). If I wasn't so greedy I would roll it into balls and treat it with more dignity, but I tend to eat it by the teaspoonful.

I haven't eaten breakie today (yet); I woke up early. But I often cook up some turkey bacon, then roll it up inside a sheet of nori, lightly spritzed with olive oil, and some scrambled eggs. Oh so good. Might just have that this morning.

I know . . . my thought was to add some almond butter and roll it balls and freeze . . . I haven't done that yet.

I think it's the peanut butter giving you pimples.  Can't eat peanut butter anymore . . . causes bloating and gas.  Which is ok I guess as I was eating way too much of it . . .

I use Splenda.  Clay likes that one best so it is all we have in our house.  I'm not sure where it is in the food list, but figured it is okay since it is made from sugar.  I hope so, anyway!    You're right . . .  you can't tell there is tofu in that shake!!

Splenda is nothing more than chlorinated sugar. From what I gather anyway.         Haven't read any of the articles ABJoe posted, but from the research I've done, won't touch the stuff. Lets just say WF doesn't carry anything w/ that in it. Nor aspartame.    Have you given stevia, vegetable glycerine or xylitol a try?
On that desert, I had a bit today during the day. It is sooooooooo good. Sorta sweet, sorta tart, right up my alley!!
