    I don't have a proper recipe written up but here is my MFP entry with a few notes added to it. Ignore the fact that the tortillas are listed in two different entries. The number was wrong the first time so I just added two more at the end. There might be some seasonings that I left out here, but I don't think so. I don't always log things like dried herbs in my recipes because the caloric content is so trivial. Half of the sauce (maybe a little less) goes into the filling with some Mexican cheese. The remainder is for putting on top of the enchiladas. Oh and chihuahua cheese could be whatever cheese you like.

    So back when I first joined MFP I made a forum post sharing a lot of photos of my vegetarian cooking. You can check it out here if you like: At the time I had lost around 45lbs. I have since lost another 20lbs and figured I would make a second thread showing some of the things I have prepared since then. I know there are quite a few people that may be curious about what a vegetarian diet looks like, and some of the vegetarians may wonder what kind of foods they can eat and still lose weight. (The answer is pretty much whatever you want, in moderation.)

    A little bit about me and the guidelines I've set for myself as far as my weight loss in concerned:

    • I made it a point to stop basing all of my meals around pasta and rice - which wasn't so straightforward as a vegetarian. I still eat them, but far less than I used to. I opt for whole grains when I can.
    • I work out 3-5 days a week. M-W-F I go to boot camp to get my *kitten* kicked. I've since started doing some lifting on at least one of my non boot camp days. I occasionally go running as well. Hoping to finish my first 5k in November.
    • I'm not a fan of "skinny" shortcuts with my cooking. I don't do splenda, diet sodas, or fat free cheeses. Popular recipes like the banana "pancake" (you all know the one) don't appeal to me at all. I make my pancakes with flour and sugar, then I top them with butter. And rum infused caramel if I feel like it :)
    • When cooking I try to compromise rather than eliminate. If I make muffins I may sub in whole wheat flour for part of the white flour. I may sub out some of the oil for apple sauce. I may cut back on the sugar. If I can reduce the calories of a dish by 20% without sacrificing flavor in any way, that's a success to me. I want my food to taste legit, yo.
    • Portion control, which is made possible by logging everything I eat. Occasionally I want something rich so I will balance it out by having less of it and eating a salad or some roasted veggies on the side.
    • If I have a day of pure calorie overload I just let it go and eat well the next day. That was a hard habit to break as I used to be one of those people that would say, "Oh I f***ed up. I guess I'll start fresh on Monday." Even though it's only Tuesday.
    • I'm pretty lax on the weekends, but not out of control. Usually. :)
    • Most days I eat between 1300-1500 calories. On weekends I will sometimes have 1800-1900. I generally eat back about half of my exercise calories but I'm not all scientific about it or anything.
