What appliances and cooking vessels do you have.  I will work up a recipe for you.


We will be visiting DH's mother in North Carolina, a big dietary problem for me.  When does your break end and do you have a car?



I have one stainless steel skillet and one pan. That is it my dear. I know, ridiculous.


NC... I went there for my Masters in Chapel Hill. Whats up with DH's mother?
Break ends on Jan 17 and yes, I have a car for now, but looking to sell it. I am planning on taking the bus to Chicago at some point.

Sharing with the best of intentions.

Look deeper, inward as to why your mind is on these five pounds.  Try to disconnect from whatever it is that keeps drawing you back to the weight and think about saying some positive affirmations about yourself, such as:

I love an accept myself on this health conscious journey.

<3 <3 <3


This is a nice shift in perspective. I needed this. I am starting to have some "downtime" to really look at things for what they are.. sometimes it can be scary but for some reason, I feel ok digging deep into what is going on. I also think that my weight is fine if I FEEL good, KK, thanks for reminding me... I get so engrossed in the number and it a complete waste of energy.

Do you have an oven?  Is there a grill pan inside?

What is your field?

Quoted from marjorie
Whats up with DH's mother?
Every activity revolves around food.  She used to be a good cook but now she uses too many prepared products and none of it is organic or pasture raised.  I'll have a migraine the entire time I'm there unless I bring all my food with me, which I DO intend to do.  She's a wonderful person -- I love her dearly -- but she isn't very supportive of my dietary needs.

I workout 6 times a week.

4 days of weights, 3 cardio and 2 yoga classes. Sometimes, I am at the gym for two hours, like yesterday.

I am a realist, and I am now just seeing that I am fat. Very sad. I wonder if type o's have issues with weight.

I will not relax until I lose ten pounds, it is just the way I am.


Just throwing this out there. You may not be getting enough protein. That creates a huge stress on the body and messes with the adrenals (which control the stress hormones)- watch out for a vicious cycle.

With that one skillet, you can make beef burgers or sautee up some ground beef. Eat that with a salad and you've got yourself a healthy meal.

Is that pan a frying pan or a saucepan? If it's a saucepan, you could heat up frozen vegetables in place of the salad sometimes. A frying pan can be used to sautee up onions, garlic, ground meat, and add some liquid (water or broth) and some frozen or fresh greens for a "one pan meal." If it's a saucepan, use it to make spinach in some kind of liquid while you cook onions and meat in the skillet- then combine into one bowl when you eat it, or add the cooked meat mixture to the saucepan after it's cooked.

With limited cookware, you'll have to have meals that are somewhat repetitive- but there's no reason you can't have healthy, substantial meals.

Hi
Thanks. I started doing this much more the past week. I bought some ground beef and sauteeid onions and broccoli. It is a pot or I guess a saucepan because I use it to hardboil my eggs. Ruth, you are right, all about being creative and still healthy. I can do it.

Of course, I would be floored out of my mind if I did get a microwave or even a GF grill however, I will only focus on what I do have right now. Thank you!

I do this all the time!  Saute the onions and garlic with whatever seasoning I'm using -- chili, curry, goulash, moussaka, tex-mex, italian -- add the meat (beef, bison, venison or lamb) and then simmer with a bit of liquid until tender.  Ten minutes before serving I stir in chopped kale, mustard greens, arugula, spinach, or chard.

If you invest in some basic spice blends, every meal will be different.

You might want to consider a crock pot, instead of the grill, if your other pans are small.  With a bigger pot, you'll be able to cook for multiple meals at once and then either take them with you for lunch, or reheat them for dinner.

There are days when I just don't want to cook and having something in the fridge is a livesaver.

There isn't much you can do in the grill that you can't do in a saute pan.

I'm glad you have some pans.  I was afraid you were in a dorm, with nothing.

If you need the recipe for my curry, I can send it, but it's pretty much saute onions, garlic and ginger, add spices* and peppers, add lemon and tomatoes, add meat and water, cook for 2.5 hours.  Last night I also added parsnips, carrots, kale and dandelion greens.  DH will have it with rice, I'll have it with a salad.  I have enough for 10 meals and will have no problem eating it over and over -- it's tasty and 100% healthy.  It's coming with us to NC.

You will need to find a curry powder without black pepper, nutmeg and mace.  I buy the individual spices and mix my own.

Another idea is fajitas.  Saute some thinly sliced flank steak with onions, peppers, garlic and cumin.  Serve it on a bed of shredded lettuce with some pico de gallo on the side.  If allowed, some guacamole is delicious with this.

Don't get the one in the jar!  It has citric acid in it.  Fresh is best but dried will work.  I use fresh.

You have to slice the meat really thin and the easiest way to do this is to partially freeze it.  First, cook the veggies, then add the meat at the last minute.

As an O, you need red meat, period.  No way around that.  IMHO, it will help your mental balance, clarity. Go get a burger, today.  It will help you feel satisfied when you eat.




ABSOLUTELY AGREE!!!!   We need red neat.  Especially as a hunter Marjorie.   And be careful about buying stuff in ready made sauces...hidden avoids.   Especially oils and sweetners.

Even red meat with hidden (or obvious) avoids is still better than not getting enough protein.
