If I ever put a good recipe on here it's because it's either my Mom's or my husband's!!
But I agree- lots of good ones by the others.

I was on track with my weight and diet until this virus attack. Now my eating schedule is all messed up. My weight is still the same but I feel overfull and sluggish and yucky.

Have been successful with low carb. I have learned:
  • eat breakfast
  • plan meals for day: protein and vegetable
  • don't wait til starving to cook-causes bad choices
We make low carb ice cream every other night in the Cuisinart freezer. 2 c. Half n half, 1/2 c. Splenda, 1 t. vanilla.

One Tablespoon of flour has 9 carbs. I make cream gravy with 2 T flour and 2 T butter for the roux. That's 18 carbs that we can share for 2-3 meals. Add parm. chese and you have alfredo sauce.

An apple in the evening helps sweet cravings.

At first, I cooked chicken thighs in crock pot a lot. Thighs in cream of mushroom soup; thighs in cream of herb chicken; thighs in cream of asparagus...

We live on the coast, so we add seafood often. I mix my own Blackening Seasoning in order to control the red pepper. It's basically paprika, garlic, Italian seasonings, and red pepper.

I make King Ranch Casserole without the tortillas. It's simply cooked chicken, Ro-tel tomatoes, mushrooms, cheese, and cream of mush.

Very Very Teriyaki sauce, used sparingly, changes stir fry vegetables into Chinese food. (found it at wal mart)

I usually don't weigh myself but I think I'm up about 10 pounds. One extra thing a day from my normal diet is all it takes, especially when that has been things like milkshakes and donuts.

Time to step on the scale tomorrow. Or maybe the next day... but it's going to have to happen.
