How in heavens do you folks manage to eat five servings of veggies a day?! A serving is a WHOLE cup! I can barely manage two cups!
Today I cup up three leaves of escarole, half of a tomato, and half of a red bell pepper, tossed together and added oil and salt. I think it would've fit into two cups, non-compressed. Does non-compressed count?
My son has no problem eating cut up celery, carrots, kirby, peper, he actually loves the munching and crunching, but I really dislike them. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to do it, like it or not!

oh, well, if it has to be by the cupful....well.....no. I count easy stuff like mushrooms in eggs, onions and red bells chopped into ground beef, and don't forget tomato sauce! (as in the marinara, plus the added spinach)    then have salad and some fruit.)

Fruit is considered as a separate category, right? So it's gotta be 5 servings of 'live food' (veggies), and 2 servings of fruit, per day (as per my SWAMI printout...)

I try to eat a large salad once a day with several benes. Add veggies to things you eat and you will soon find it easy to get them all in. I add 1 cup of spinach to my protein shakes, blend well with the liquid before adding other ingredients. Don't add arugala though; did that once and forgot about the peppery taste   I had peppered blueberry protein shake.

Diffy, I get my 5 cups of veggies in very easily, by chopping them in a food processor

I mix one cup into my egg omelet with mushrooms, cook it like a pancake and either flip it over, or fold it in half and cook until done.

The other four cups I mix with ground sirloin or could mix with ground turkey, bison, lamb, and a tomato sauce and compliant beans of choice.I use great north and butter beans ( I process mine, so I don't see them)Plus add all the teaspoons of compliant seasonings and herbs.

Okay, so I'm slow.    

I figured out where the excrutiating knee and ankle pain has come from.   On my SWAMI, pineapple is now just a bene and sweet potatoes a neutral, so I dumped both in favor of diamond foods and decreased my flax seed from a 1 T a day to only 3 T a week-----BIG MISTAKE!!!!!  In my handy food bible: 1 cup of pineapple has 74.1% of daily  of manganese requirements, sweet potato slightly less and flax seed oil also high in manganese. Manganese decreases inflammation and is now being used for arthritis and carpal tunnel treatment.  It has many other benefits too. Couldn't also figure out why eyelids were kind of puffy too.

So the moral of the story boys and girls is too EAT YOUR PINEAPPLE or you could be TOO CRIPPLED to work out!!!!!!

wow....just realized: I actually get (so it seems) as much cheese as anyone......just more limited in variety.....could that be true? ...makes me feel way less deprived cuz I could love any cheese! (I get pecorino romano, parmesan, farmers, as superfoods and a few others as neutrals....)

Here it is Janeeo- guess when no one is using it, it tends to disappear.

I am trying, it is hard, right now, other things like family seems to be my focus right now, so I need to bring me to the front of the line, again and take care of me.

Thanks for asking for it, it feels like my responsibility since I started this one, I will try to keep it going, but please help!

Oh, I will help, G'sue! I like posting gatherer stuff. Even though I go with swami. (in which I am a gatherer)
This was yummy so I wanted to post.
lunch: 3/4 c. nonfat ricotta, plus 3 T. hummus (I found white bean at TJ's) and 1T. pesto, plus sauteed spinach ( about 3/4 c. cooked)  mix all. It's real good. The ricotta is a neutral for me, but th rest are bennies or diamonds. I justify the neutral because I need a high protein lunch that isn't meat sometimes!

I understand not wanting meat sometimes, just want something to grab and eat and get it over with, because of other things to do, and it just happens to be the right time to eat, especially when one is a diabetic like oneself.  I'm not hungry, but need to eat anyways, to get the right amount of glucose, to coincide with the amount of novolog I took in the morning.  

I enjoyed oatmeal with molasses and currants for breakfast with salmon and great northern beans and green beans to follow it. Kept my glucose stable until noon, so that was great, when I had a half a thin crusted pizza with the works (white flour, an avoid)(but will soon be getting some spelt and rice flour and try making my own), when I get the craving.

Also want to try that flax seed microwave bread, and see after I make it the first time, if I can't switch it to a pizza crust, instead. Has anybody tried it that way?

Tonight's dinner is still in the oven. I'm making amaranth in one pot (with some sea salt and grapeseed oil added to the cooking water), green beans in another (with olive oil and salt) and salmon loaf (1 large can salmon, quinoa flakes, 2 eggs, onion, garlic, and dill). I'm also making brocolli soup on the stove (for my kids since I can't have broccolli, but it's about the only way to get DD2 to eat veggies). Right now it's just sauteed onions (in olive oil), water, and broccolli,  but she'll add some spices to it when she purees it later.

Ruthiegirl Can you go into a little more detail on how you cook your amaranth like how much amaranth to how much water, do you add it after water boils or add it in the beginning, can it also be eaten as a breakfast with a sweetener? Thanks, I want to give it a try, soon.

have a pot of basmati brown rice with amaranth in the fridge. I cooked up a pot of it in my rice cooker....the rice is 2 to one, water to rice and then a handful of amaranth and about twice as much water as a handful. I find it easier to make that way. I'm a fan of rice cookers, and the combo tastes really good.

Okra is a diamond for me,I have found some at the local grocer, but have no idea how to cook it, does anybody have any ideas?  I am really battling to find compliant cheeses here in South Africa. The pecorino is made from cows milk, it is organic and suitable for vegetarians and in romano I can only get a parmesan. Will it really make a differance that the cheese is made of cows milk?

Skillie cows milk is an avoid, so will probably make a difference in how you feel,  Are you allowed buffalo?  Did you see our post on buffalo milk (can make paneer, cottage cheese from it) What about goats?  There are instructions on video just goodgle paneer, you will find it, if not check back here and I will try and find it for you.

Geminisue you are doing a tremendous job here!!  well done!!
Regarding the microwave,Mmmm, if you do not mind me saying this, but I do not trust microwaves, rather cook using top stove or any other natural system.
We had this discussion before, just in case you missed it:
