General Discussion / Spinach Bread Question
« on: June 06, 2011, 08:09:29 PM »
I'm not clear on the type of pan to use to bake this...would my pyrex loaf  one be the type ?    I use this for bananna bread

General Discussion / Lovin Chayote Squash
« on: June 06, 2011, 07:40:58 PM »
I tried it for the first time this weekend...first time peeled & steamed which was good but I found it to be a bit bland...then I tried it peeled, sliced and drizzled w/EVOO & on the grill  in my grill basket...a bit more flavor that way. Any suggestions for your favorite way to prepare it  would be appreciated  :) Thank you

General Discussion / Hi ! It's me
« on: June 02, 2011, 05:54:04 PM »
I just wanted to say Hi to Doug,Umpa and everyone !   And to say I'm still  here...My weight loss has been slow but I'm fine with that and I'm happy to say, it has been a gradual loss with no gains...I'm still limping from the Tibial plateau fracture but if it wasn't for Dougs book and the help/support i've received here I never would have had this success.  Not to mention learning soooooo much about food.  I was coming out of a store and someone I hadn't seen for a while said " I almost didn't recognize you, you've lost weight"   I thought to myself later..." It must have been my sunglasses or the fact that I've cut my hair short" But since the weight has come off so gradual for me I suppose I don't see myself as others see me . I still have a way to go but I know I will always keep Dougs book handy and be mindful of carbs for the rest of my life ;)

General Discussion / Anxiety ?
« on: April 11, 2011, 02:04:16 PM »
Lately I've developed some anxiety, feeling it more so as soon as I wake up...I was wondering if this might be associated with my low carb diet ?  I'm not one for taking suppliments or medications....I would appreciate all of your knowledge and advice on this please

General Discussion / Just saying hello
« on: March 27, 2011, 01:05:19 PM »
Since I started back to work I haven't had as much time to come into the forum and I miss it !  Hello to everyone  ;D   I'm inching along slow & steady but am happy with how things are going considering I am still dealing with recouperating from the fractured Tibia and can't walk alot...I hope all is well with you Doug & Umpa and everyone ! 

General Discussion / Loosing slowly
« on: February 14, 2011, 05:50:06 PM »
I know there are many variables to consider when it comes to  how fast or slow the weight comes off .  I'm happy that since I started FTS I have had a gradual loss with no regains.  I can't be as active as I would like since I'm still  recuperating  from a fractured Tibia even though I'm walking now and back to work part time the Docs orders are 4-6 hours on my feet without the aid of the crutches so I can rationalize the fact  I'm not burning as many  calories as I normally would....Trying to be patient and positive but these twinges of discouragement sneak in on loosing slowly

General Discussion / The best ham salad
« on: February 08, 2011, 08:55:42 PM »
I purchased a spiral ham and was thinking of different ways to use it. One thing I did was put a bunch of it on the grill ,then put it in the food processor with Mayo...quick and simple and  the flavor from grilling made the BEST ham salad ! great to spread on GG crisps or roll in a tortilla ;)

I would love to have some ideas from you experts of  what to bring to work for  my contribution to the snack room that would be FTS friendly...Thank you in advance  ;)

General Discussion / Back to work & the snack room
« on: February 06, 2011, 01:28:49 PM »
I limped back to work after 5 months recuperation from a fractured Tibia and right back to all the homemade goodies, chips, dips, candies,etc. everyone brings in on a daily basis to the snack/coffee room !  Going back to work AFTER starting FTS has saved me !!!  I look at all those items and I could care less !!  I have no cravings for them and they don't interest me.  Honestly that feeling to me is so foreign as opposed to how I was before starting FTS and seeing all those things spread out before me I craved it all.  Although I am  down only 14lbs so far since before my accident I did not gain any weight being in a wheel chair all those months and some coworkers actually  noticed the bit of weight loss and commented on it, asking how I did it.  I was more than pleased to tell them. Now that I'm back, my contributions to the snack table will be something I can eat and perhaps others will enjoy having a healthy choice.

General Discussion / Jalepeno poppers
« on: January 28, 2011, 03:25:57 PM »
Home made are so much better than the frozen store bought...Just took a batch from the oven ...breathing fire but I love em  :'( I only use low fat 0 carb cream cheese but you can add bacon crumble or cheddar cheese...jalepenos are 2.5 each half and the amount of bread crumbs I used were 8 net carbs per 1/4 c but I only used 3 Tbls...the rest of the ingredients are 0 net carbs....I season the cream cheese with onion powder and garlic powder and a little oragano..cut the jalepenos length wise ( remove the seeds and vein, I wear rubber kitchen gloves and use the tip of a veg. peeler ,run it from one end to the other and it scoops the entire insides out )  stuff with the cream cheese, roll in heavy cream then in  the crumbs,  Bake on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with Pam  for 30 min at 300 for spicy hot ,40 min for a bit milder, and 50 min for even milder

General Discussion / Supliments ?
« on: January 27, 2011, 12:51:09 PM »
I was wondering if any vitamin supliments are  reccomended ?  My husband thinks my eating may be too drastic since I don't drink milk anymore and the only fruit I'm having are strawberries, razberries and blackberries

General Discussion / Is Chinese Take out doable ?
« on: January 21, 2011, 02:48:56 PM »
I'm thinking appetizers like chicken on a stick, beef teriyaki, boneless spare ribs or chicken wings....looking at the menu I don't see where I can order much else without going way off the carbs charts

« on: January 18, 2011, 12:24:58 PM »
