    I've been eating a plant based diet for a little while now and I love it. I love how I can eat a huge amount of food and it's not that many calories. I haven't been counting calories and my weight isn't going up, even with my giant portions. I love that I discovered eating this way. Just ate a big salad with greens, chick peas, avocado, roasted sweet potato and pumpkin seeds. I'm looking for a good oil free or low-oil dressing that I can throw together - any ideas? I usually make some sort of vinegar and olive oil dressing (with other stuff too) but it's pretty heavy on the oil.

    I’ve never used oil in my dressing. I feel like it is a waste of calories. I usually put hot sauce, a good quality balsamic vinegar, lots of spices, truvia, and Dijon mustard on my salads and have no need for oil or dressing.

    (I love 0 calorie Walden farms balsamic though.)

    This makes me want to start the discussion


    All what are your most recommended spices and blendssss ..

    I'm definitely a mustard/cinnamon chick and love this maple bacon one by club house

    Great new buns I discovered to enable my volume eating are these 50 calorie buns. Great size and taste. Way better than thinslim foods buns which weren't soft and had a weird texture. These actually have the texture of bread. Whole plate is <160 calories which is the calories of a "snack" for me. Could have two and still be insanely low on the calories. zjm21enczzh3.jpg

    Have you tried 647 Schmidt breads and rolls? They seem to be the closest for me. Their bread is 40 calories per slice and buns are 80.

    Is their an opposite to this where people try to eat as little as possible on their 2000 calories? I'm trying to shrink my appetite. (Plus, I don't think I can afford to buy big loads of food).

    Yes, I usually buy those! I love their hotdog/hamburger rolls and english muffins.

    I like to bulk up some meals with cabbage. Sauteed purple cabbage with onions, a little garlic, and seasoned with smoked paprika is yummy. :)

    Miracle rice with cauliflower rice, abd old fashioned oars super expanded- slow cooker on medium then low over night. Stir and add water or almond milk as needed. I also add glucomannan powder. This will double I'd not triple the size. Then add what you want- I would add powdered peanut butter !
