Sweet potato isn't one of our better food choices, and I won't be buying as much in the future.  

There are so few veggies that we like, that are easy to fix.  I'm not a mushroom fan and good tasting okra (frozen is about it) is hard to find locally.

Good morning, grainfree! the good news is it gets easier! The bad news is I bounced up a lb. and can only claim a 2 lb loss since going grainfree, but that won't stop me. I haven't slipped up since that first week....
this a.m.: 1 egg, one turkey sausage patty, and some chopped red onion, sauteed together. half cup of coffee, cup of my tea blend.

Last night I had a strange but great dinner. cold chicken, cubed with cold cooked collards, chopped, red onion, chopped, about one fifth of an apple, chopped, tossed with evoo and lemon juice!  
loved it.

jayneeo, what did you for breakfast today?

KK here, day 37 grain free.  Breakfast: Turkey patties dusted with rice flour, and two spices. I can't remember which ones Lewis used.  Fried onions with green bell pepper.  He had rice, as usual.

I had a nightmare last night.  I dreamed I stuffed a whole bunch of grain (I can't remember "which one") in my mouth and it didn't dawn on me what I was doing until I was just about ready to swallow it.

I can never tell when I am dreaming until I wake up.  My husband says, he can always tell when he is dreaming because there is always an element that doesn't make sense to him.  So for him, he says he never has a nightmare. ... to that!

my breakfast was similar to yours...posted above.
ha ha, dreaming of eating grain!! I'd probably dream of eating rice toast! Oh how I loved it.
but I miss it less and less.....really.
I hope to alleviate my hand pain by eliminating phytates. I have no other arthritic pain, but these fingers can drive me mad.

Wed. afternoon:
I had fried eggs over sauteed swiss chard (better than you might think!...chard was sauteed in ghee!)

lunch was a grassfed beef hot dog with chopped red onions and a small floret of broccoli with a slice of.......(you guessed it) manchego over it......and after that....frozen blueberries with sour cream....it gets ice creamy, but no sweetener. good tho'.

Tonight's plan is grassfed beef shortribs....? I'll tell ya how they come out! (they say grassfed is tough, so I selected short ribs...lots of fat, which should be good)

my shortribs were soooo delicious!
OK, I'd be hoping for some more weightloss by now. It's 3 weeks....... ...yeah, I'm eating a lot of fat, but I have read that you need to eat more fat while changing over to grainfree.....so...let's hope we get some more impressive scale feedback here!

KK here, Day 39 Grain Free.

Lamb burgers and stir fry vegetables, zuchinni & red bell pepper.  Lewis had brown rice.

No sewing today. We are off to hit the streets, making a run through the SFV  do some more soliciting for Lewis's business since work has slowed down to a pace for him.  This involves me driving him while he visits all businesses that might handle their own HVAC (and not the building owner) as well as those businesses that have refrigeration (stores, florists, caterers) and/or boilers (laundromats, dry cleaners).  Hopefully, we'll be home before 9pm tonight.

This a.m. was eggs and onions, with turkey sausages. I bought the sausage in bulk, mixed up in house by Whole Foods, and then made a bunch of patties and froze them.
I am finding this grainfree life is getting easier....just have to think, eggs and what veg? meat and what veg...and remember to have the occasional fruit.
Need to shop!!!!! Grain keeps well, remember, that's one of the reasons it became such a huge part of our diet! So now I have to shop a lot to keep those fresh meats and vegetables coming!
Shopping today.

Shopped. Now house is full of good stuff.
Lunch was a green salad, with tomato, avocado (I knooow), about 3 oz. gr. grassfed beef, and a homemade (as always) dressing.

for those who may be following to see how I am adapting....it is getting easier!! Cravings are gone!!
I no longer crave grains! (I could tempt fate and cave in, sure, but basically it's not hard to keep my mind off grain) I am pleased.
I am watching for the pain in my hands to go away. It seems to be happening.....!! Will let ya know!!

I'm living vicariously through you jayneeo! I don't do well on the grain-free diet, but I am going sugar-free starting yesterday.

I'm glad you are noticing the good effects!

Drea, I don't see how an A could be grain-free and be balanced.  Thank goodness for vicarious diets!

KK Here,  

I'm still grain free, but I did have a moment of weakness and made one of those almond pancakes again...   Lewis sez 2 eggs were too much and I didn't add enough salt.  Covered them in butter but passed on the agave this time at least.  After I made up the batch, I threw out the flour.  It was too tempting to do that again.


We are dealing with major car issues so I am not a happy camper.

I know what you mean, KK! Those pancakes just don't come across pancakewise....and they are so tempting.....but I am going to try an almond flour that is less gritty. As soon as I get up an online order, or find some somewhere.
Last night I was so tired I called DH at the store (Whole Foods) and asked him to bring home one of those roasted chickens. It was just cooked and moist and hit the spot!! He brought home coleslaw from the deli and we called it a night!
What a simple dinner! Easier than going out! Going out is no fun when you are eating carefully.
This morning was spinach and egg with manchego cheese (I know)! I'm having my yerba mate/green tea/peppermint tea now after just an inch of coffee.

I bought some yerba mate yesterday and was disappointed to read that it has caffeine. I'm still looking for something rich and hot for an evening drink so I can stop eating after 7pm.

Btw, yesterday was day 2 of so sugar, although I did *technically* have agave the first day...but yesterday was sugar/sweetener-free.

I apologize for not having read this whole thread before posting, so maybe you've all already addressed this issue. What are you guys doing for complex carbs? You only need about 50 to 100g of protein a day, but you need about 300g of carbs. Bare minimum of 130g in order for your brain to function. I realize Os need more of some things than As do, but carbs are an important thing, even if just the minimum is consumed. So far the posts I've skimmed through look like too little carbs, just say'n.

grey rabbit, thanks for your concern!
well, O's do need fewer, I believe...but when going grainfree we still can have fruits and veg, esp. tubers for carb. I love tubers, sweet potato, beets, etc .I am going low on fruits right now to see if it helps me lose weight. But I do eat a bit of fruit everyday. Maybe I don't always log in the quarter of an apple snack or the bit of frozen berries thrown into a salad dressing.
Your type shouldn't try to go grainfree.
And if I were my optimal weight I might use some grains, like quinoa, etc.

I realize this tool is lacking many things (what can you expect from the mainstream?) but it is helpful none-the-less. I was surprised when I tried it and I'm making an effort to work on a healthier amount of carbs in my diet.

Your body can produce glucose from protein, but it's hard on your kidneys.
