  • I have thought of using cauliflower instead of meat before, but there really is no point as I feel tacos are already pretty good in calories. I use 93/7 ground turkey, my own taco seasoning so I can monitor the sodium, fresh tomatoes/onions, light sour cream, con queso dip because it is so delicious (and only 40 cals per 2…
  • Hellman's Light Mayo is only 35 calories per Tablespoon. (a condiment packet is only 30 and mixes up nicely with one hard boiled egg yolk to make 2 quick deviled egg halves :wink: )
  • For all options that use sliced bread, I use the 40 calorie bread made by Village Hearth. They have a few varieties/flavors. I like to keep my breakfast right around 200 calories. Biscuits and Gravy – use skim milk, flour, turkey breakfast sausage, salt, and pepper for the gravy (1lb of the turkey sausage makes a lot of…
  • This is quoted from the post http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/1009194-the-big-starvation-mode-myth?page=12 It appears you may not be eating enough... I used to eat 1200 calories and dropped a decent amount of weight. Then, I hit a plateau and started gaining again. I increased my calories gradually over a 6 month…
  • Here are some of the things I make for my lunches (I usually keep my lunches to around 300 cals). There is a lot of variety for you. Chicken Cordon Bleu - 225 calories Beat the crap out of a 4 oz chicken breast with a meat tenderizer (I wrap with plastic wrap first as I can get crazy with the hammer) Dry fry in non stick…
  • Turkey flavored like italian sausage, mushrooms (yes, more mushrooms. I love them), black olives, turkey pepperoni, pizza sauce, 1 egg white, shredded mozzarella cheese. spread pizza sauce in the mushroom cap mix the cooked turkey, mushrooms, black olives, turkey pepperoni, egg white and cheese together. This does not need…
  • Pancakes - Bisquick Heart Smart Blueberry Pancakes are very good and low in calories. The recipe is on the box and it makes 8 pancakes at 70 calories each pancake. (i eat with either of the following reduced calorie syrup, a banana, or a "syrup" made by taking a frozen bag of fruit and thawing then mashing the berries into…
  • From the Prevention website: http://recipes.prevention.com/Recipe/sausage-gravy-and-biscuits.aspx GRAVY 1/2 pound turkey breakfast sausage, casings removed 3 cups fat-free milk 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper I doubled the recipe since the breakfast sausage comes in a 1 lb roll…
  • Boring....but if it works for you, go for it.
  • The way I understand it (and please don't be upset with my lack of 'technical' knowledge) is that muscle tissue is more readily available for the body to use as energy. You have to make sure you are fueling your muscles in order for the body to look towards the fat cells to start burning. Mind you, fat cells are not…
  • Spaghetti. Instead of meat, add lots of veggies - zucchini, eggplant, black olive, chunks of tomato, mushrooms, onion...
  • Top with a mushroom cream sauce made with laughing cow garlic and herb cheese, skim milk, and fresh mushrooms. Top with swiss cheese and carving board ham for a cordon bleu. Shred and heat with some taco seasoning for a taco salad. Dice for a chicken caesar salad. Shredd or slice and place on bread with swiss cheese,…
  • Pic is fixed. Sorry, first time actually posting a picture!
  • Last night, I took a serving of brown rice and mixes as follows for lunch today. It was delicious! a few drops of olive oil (maybe 1/4 teaspoon) 1 chopped green onion creole seasoning chili powder garlic powder Take the cooked rice and toss in a pan with all ingredients mixed in for a couple minutes. I just wait until it…
  • It is really good on shrimp too! I season the shrimp with a bit of sage, pepper, and garlic first.
  • Looks more like egg salad...
  • I like to drink a shake on occasion just because it tastes good and helps curb other cravings. It is very sweet if you prepare it as directed. I only use 1/3 of a scoop of powder for every 8oz skim milk though. My mom always gave this to my sister and I as kids only as a chocolate milk replacement because of the nutrients…
  • Had these for dinner last night and had to share: Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/925744-loaded-mashed-potato-cakes Turkey, Bacon, and Swiss Melt http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/925740-turkey-bacon-and-swiss-melt
  • I can't say that I miss anything. Now I also can't say that I eat all of the same foods. Some of the food I used to eat is way too salty or sweet to me now. I eat so much more flavorful food since this change. Just the other day I had about 300 calories left over. I made my husband go and get me a dark chocolate snickers…
  • I have used my journey and lifestyle change to try new things that I wouldn't normally eat. When we go to restaurants, I try the lower calorie choices. IE: Fish prepared multiple ways (my fav is to have them use the blackening seasoning and then grill it without oil or butter), low calorie menu items, getting what I want…
  • On toast with breakfast. 2 egg white omelet with mushrooms and 2 pieces of village hearth light 40 calorie 12 grain bread toasted with 1 wedge of the queso chipotle fresco cheese spread between both pieces.
  • I found a black bean dip mix that I use with light sour cream. This dip has just a hint of spice that is wonderful with celery.
  • One quick meal I enjoy making is chicken cordon bleu. Either buy the prepackaged frozen chicken tenderloin pieces, or take a chicken breast and use a meat mallet/tenderizer on it. I like to put a bit of cayenne pepper on the chicken before I dry pan fry or grill it. Then put a slice of swiss cheese and a couple slices of…
  • When you increase your calories, you need to give it some time for the weight to go back down. You will end up gaining a little bit until your body recognizes that it doesn't need to store the fat any longer from when you were eating a lower amount of calories. I hit a plateau like this in December. I hovered between 152…
  • The skinny cow cluster things are great too. (sorry, too lazy to google it) They are supposed to be like dark chocolate turtles. I think one pack is 120 calories.
  • Chop up cabbage and fry with a bit of oil, bacon, and onions. For St Patrick's day, I plan to make this and add boiled new potatoes with a couple cuts in them to the pan while the cabbage is cooking as well (the corned beef will be in the crock pot :wink: )
  • Love cabbage. Bump! (I want to try pan frying with a bit of oil, bacon and onions.)
  • http://www.amanashops.com/category/amana-coffee-and-tea This is a local place (within 30 miles) for me, but you can order their tea online. Priced very well. You can get one 3 oz pouch for $3.00. They have a large selection of black loose leaf flavored teas. They also have a couple green tea varieties. My favorite is the…
  • http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/911117-95-calorie-blueberry-banana-bread-muffins I posted this the other day. Banana bread made with blueberries in muffin tins (25 - 30 mins) at 95 calories each for 12 servings. You may also make into a loaf without blueberries (50 - 60 mins) at 110 calories each for 10 servings.…
  • They sure are! I just had to laugh when I saw this post....and even more when I saw 'Enough said'. A girl at work is selling them, and I have to walk past her desk every day. I have so far been able to successfully ignore the many boxes of thin mints and caramel delights....so far. :grumble:
