Great report and congrats, cewyman.

It is always interesting to hear how certain avoid foods seem to trigger negative responses once reintroducted back into one's new way of eating.  Our bodies' are very smart, if we truly listen to them.  I believe your body's trying to tell you something.

Thus far, your approach is good in regards to focusing on the avoids to discharge from your meals and pre-cutting and organizing your kitchen.  These factors can really assist at meal times when we can often be ravenous for something to eat.  It's nice to open the frig and have prepared or cooked and healthy foods to choose from.

xox,
Alia

cewyman!  
Way to go.  A little at a time, making a few changes everyday, and before you know it, you find it to be easier being compliant than when you were eating foods that weren't good for you!

BTD is about health but weight loss comes as a welcomed side effect, right?

Ok..

I trust everyone had a safe and happy new year celebration? Anyone do anything extraordinary?

I spent a couple hours last night breaking down bulk items into portion size storgae containers, and had my first attempt at making the BTD tofu burgers. I am actually looking forward to trying them tonight for dinner.

Last night I made a fairly large spinach salad with canned salmon, soy mozzerella chesse, brocolli, carrots, and a little olive oil, and tamari to top it off. It was actually pretty good. If I could have changed something...maybe a little more flavor from somewhere?? and maybe soften the brocolli a bit.

I got this mac & cheese recipe off that vegweb website...that will be my next adventure...

I found these black bean chips (compliant), and some soy herb cream cheese stuff. OK...not buything that again...to hard to stop eating them. I prefer to stay way from processed foods, but at times it is very hard...

I rested a lot over the new year's change.  I've been pampering myself instead of being out celebrating!

Quoted Text
hot green tea instead of the normal Latte!


I am one of those A's who really loves the fact that we are supposed to have coffee.  I used to always need a mocha with all the trims (whip cream, chocolate and milk).  But now in the a.m. on my way to work I get a regular coffee with some steamed soy milk and then I use a little sugar in the raw to sweeten.  Give it a shot! (or a soy latte).

My cooking schedule is a little easier because I stay home with my son most of the time, but some time savers are: pre-washed and cut greens for salads (I always put a piece of paper towel in with them so it absorbs the moisture and they stay fresh longer), snacks in baggies (nuts, carrots, grapes, whatever), hard boiled eggs in the fridge door for whenever, big batches of soup that are frozen in portions I can take with me (when I do work PT)- or a batch big enough so I can use it for 3 days or so in the fridge.  
Do you have a crock pot?  You may want to get a small one, they are great for wild rice mixes (with lots of veggies/chicken/veg stock/whatever mixed in) that you can leave on low.  Not to mention the zillions of other things you could make with it!

I was struggling with tofu and soy recipies, so I checked out vegan/vegetarian cookbooks from the library and sorted through the ones I could use.  Good luck!

Yeah, I have a crockpot, it is fairly large tho'....I should get a smaller one, just for me!

I have pretty much weened myself off the Latte's. I can't seem to stomach the soy milk they use at the local coffee joint. I can experiment at home, but what to do once I leave...?

I want to make some soup in bulk, but haven't had time, maybe tonight...it is on the list of things to do.

I tried that type A protein drink this morning...not sure if mixing it with grapefruit juice was the problem, but it did not taste good at all. I even tried mixing dried apricots into it...no help.
I drank about 3/4 of it, then went for some ezekial toast, and out the door I went...

I have the coffee at home and green tea when I'm out and about if I have to have something hot...or sometimes I have coffee at home and also make a pot of green tea and take it with me in a thermos.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

I believe I have read in one of the past older threads that soaking the protein powder overnight may assist with the gritty feeling in the powder.  Perhaps try pineapple juice, black cherry juice.

I'm new too ---- this is my first attempt at posting a message.

Really enjoying the breakfast ideas.  
I did'nt  see any mention of Peanut Butter on Toast or Celery.
I also like home made trail mix and it travels well.

The non secretor part of this threw me for a while, but I think I'm finally getting it.

???  Someone mentioned Muffins and Recipes. How can I find them?

Welcome Purlgirl!

Hang out around these Forum A's and you'll be in good company!  And hey, being a nonnie is not so bad, once we realize that avoids have no place in our lives.  After that, we're doing great.

The breakfast drink wasn't gritty...it just didn't taste good.
This morning I was brave enough to try it again... this time I used pineapple juice, and a packet of sweetener. This helped, but I had to chug it... I can't quite describe the taste, but for "taseless" powder....it isn't pleasant.. I finished with a slice of exekial toast with a little canned salmon on it.........not bad I thought...and green tea once at the office.

PS: The tofu burgers were awesome!! I repeat, awesome!!!
I could have them everyday, and just might..

try soaking the powder in the juice overnight maybe, so it doesn t feel as gritty in the morning.....
and add some molasses or any compliant sweetener so it doesn t taste so bland.

I make sure I'm drinking adequate water and getting the recommended amount of fats and things usually pass OK.  I do sometimes backup a bit if I exercise more because of the stored junk that gets mobilized for removal.  

Of course, I'm rebuilding from extreme adrenal fatigue, etc., so your results may vary!

I think any protein powder is better as part of a smoothie, and not just mixed in juice alone.  Try using a blender and throwing in some fresh and/or frozen compliant fruit. . . Something to give it a little "body" and flavor apart from the protein powder.

The vegetables are actually assisting you by 'moving along' your food in the digesive tract because of its fiber.  

Please remember that Ezekiel bread changed from its beneficial status to its present neutral status.  There are more optimal grain options for blood type A's.  Also be cognizant of portion/frequency guidelines; this may prove helpful.

Evening everyone.   ?Trying to understand the clock. I noticed last night when I posted The time given was totally dif from my time.  I'm in Cal and its about 11:30 pm Friday

Cewyman - Can't wait to try the Tofu Burgers.  (just wish my dh was a tiny bit interested in healthy food)

This whole web site is a bit overwhelming to me. It's huge! I almost didn't find my way back to this thread.            There is no way I'll get this all figured out in the near future.  Any Clues???


Lola - thank you for your help. I found the recipes and have the link on my fav list. And thank you for the link to your page  (blog ?) It's reasuring to read of others  good results.  (wish I could add those cute little happy faces)

Are you using the Recent Thread button, at the top of the page? It will provide you a list of the most recent active threads. This is what most member use to read and post to active threads.

Why can't you use the smilies? All you need to do is click on them in the Add Smilies box and it will place it at the end of your post. You can move it after that if you need to.

You can also go to your Member Center and arrange to be notified by email whenever there has been a post to a thread that you are interested in.

You might bookmark on your computer the Recent Thread page that Don suggested, so that you will go straight to that page instead of the main site for ER4YT.  It saves time and steps.
