  • Love cacao powder. I am usually mixing it with soy milk and a banana. So simple and satisfying !
  • Hello ! I have gone back to IF one month ago and also fine-tuning it. I don' count calories anymore but I track on paper and I stayed on the MFP community because I find quite helpful in terms of accountability. This week I am allowing IF 14/10 because I am in PMS. I have planned the following - day 1 to day 10: allow for…
  • I love wasabi peanuts but it is very calorically dense !! 😬😬
  • Hi girls I hope everybody had a good night sleep 😁 @Curvykinkycurls I usually do 16:8 but this week I tried alternating down days with only 1 meal (Done on Monday, Wednesday and yesterday) and up days with 3 meals and a snack. It was easy to follow because my « fast muscles » are strong, I am used to it but I am not sure…
  • Yes I also eat more dairy and while I eat less sweets my weight doesn’t come down. I am thinking about going back a little on the cheese… I have also started intermittent fasting again and that feels great. It has been 2 weeks now and that also didn’t impacted the scale. Disappointing. But so long as I don’t gain. In…
  • Hello ladies, Thought I would give you some news. So I stopped counting calories now 2 weeks ago, deciding instead to focus on my nutrition plan and intermittent fasting. I still track on paper what I eat otherwise I now I will "take advantage". I am not sure if I will come back to counting calories. It is refreshing not…
  • This looks delish Eva. You're doing great, sticking with showing up for your health.
  • I also made the soup today but with less water. The raw garlic in the sauce is hard but otherwise it is good indeed and not my usual so thanks 😊
  • I agree with you all, if I don’t track I will gain weight. I still track on paper and aim to eat what my nutritionist told me to. I must admit it is great not to focus on calories anymore. I will see in one month if it works out OK !!!
  • So good that you are feeling better. I have stopped counting calories recently (this weekend) and I am focusing on my nutrition plan, tracking on paper. I don’t want to gain weight. I will see how it goes. Have you guys made “pauses” in your tracking ?
  • Oh so sorry for you @chelseynikole9618 I hope it doesn't last too long
  • Sort of. Without the egg and oil and replacing parmesan by nutritional yeast. It is definitely that post that got me inspired to make some savory oats 😍
  • Just made a batch of soup (mix of veggies waiting for me in the fridge) and 2 portions of savory oats (kale and mushrooms) for the next days. Proud !
  • Soup for breakfast is great, I should do this more often !!
  • I have a lot of kale in the garden and it starts to grow into flowers so I need to eat it. I think I will try your receipt @takinitalloff
  • This one is also a favorite (I make the version with the egg but there is a vegan alternative) We ended up calling this cake « le gâteau de Jean » because each each time those friends come home he asks if I can make it for him 😉
  • I have a great vegan dessert that can be eaten with the hand
  • @Curvykinkycurls I don’t understand how fasting can be bad for the heart. It is something the human body is designed for. I always see it as going into the freezer for ressources once in while, not just in the fridge. And it helps reduce the insuline resistance. But of course, it is better to be careful if you don’t feel…
  • And you what are your objectives and plans for this week ?
  • Hey @chelseynikole9618 good job, you rock ! Yes moving my body is doing me good. I am better today, emotionally. My knee is still swollen but far less than yesterday. I am starting to believe I can be ok in 2 or 3 days. I have a 5 days trip planned with friends as from Wednesday. I have not yet cancelled. Maybe I will be…
  • Oh thank you all. I am still resting. Finally accepting that I can't do anything with my legs until Wednesday when the stiches will be removed. I also injured my knee apparently. I don't know how it is going to evolve. I am still not at a good place emotionally. Mostly sad and frustrated. I try to remember that life is…
  • I didn’t do well yesterday. it was a binge day like I had not had for a long time so at the restaurant I took the pasta I had said I would but otherwise in the afternoon I ate a lot of Easter candy and chocolate bars. I know it was emotional eating. I have been injured last Monday during a bike accident and I feel like…
  • Red lentil pasta and edamame I had not thought of! Excellent 🙏 Tonight I am going to an Italian restaurant with family so it will be difficult to follow the plan. I have spotted a pasta al a Norma on the menu (with tomatoes and aubergine) and I will take this. It will include the oil for sure and I can add a bit of…
  • Lunch and diners already include 200g of yogurt or 60g of cheese or 60g of nuts. But the 50g of lentils certainly fit. I did a Fork over knives receipt for lentils sloppy Joe this week as a replacement. I may do a batch of this every week. But I need other alternatives to avoid getting bored 😅
  • I have a question for you, or rather I invite you to a little brainstorming :) I got a nutrition plan this week, and I'm still getting the hang of it. It's for the next 3 months. It's an ovo-vegetarian plan, but I don't intend to eat eggs every day. So I'm looking for nutritional equivalents of 1 egg and 2 eggs (for…
  • @mtaratoot wow that's impressive. Hello @Curvykinkycurls nice to have you back. I am sorry for your loss <3 I have done IF for more than one year (fasting from 8pm until 12am) and I loved it but these days I only do IF when I have a rest day, otherwise I eat something in the morning. It is often around 9 or 10 am, I am not…
  • Is the weather already warm enough ? That’s really nice
  • Oh YES to all pictures <3 I would love to have the sea near me. Forest is quite easy to find, that's that. I have had an excellent week-end, but ate a little bit too much. I was within my calorie budget (which is higher on week-ends) but since I am just post fast, I put on weight very fast (2 kilos compared to Friday…
  • Walking in forest is the best. What have you planned for the week-end ? I had an excellent Thursday, both food and activity wise. I started this Friday with a short run in the sun. It will be rainy this afternoon. Now I have to work half a day (and I procrastinate a bit lol). Tonight and tomorrow evening are party evenings…
  • Tonight’s diner was really good
