Hey lynnecandco and welcome to the fts forum! We are like a family here and we help each other out! Definitely look at the meal plans board! I have found that when I post what I eat, including the portion sizes, it really helps me to stay on track! I do have to say that ice water really helps keep down the "hungries" when you're first starting! Drink lots (more than 64oz) of ice water especially when you feel hungry! There are a lot of eating habits that need to be broken in the beginning and eating just because it's time to eat, is one of them!!

You will do great!! Post often and we will support you in any way we can!
Most importantly, believe in yourself and persevere!!!
You can do this!!!   ;)

ok, so just to clarify, you DON'T use the paper (cupcake type) liners!?! Do the mini pumpkin pies actually hold together if you want to, say, share them with a friend!?!  ::)

So, do you use paper liners so you can store them in the fridge!?! Pretty dumb question, I'm sure, but just making sure I do it right!! lol   :D

Oooooo, good idea!!! Didn't think of that, I will cut it down and/or freeze them!!! Of course, zero will not give me the sugar alcohol issues either!! <grin>

I have to choose the sweets that I make, because it's soooo easy for me to go overboard!! Really working hard not to do that because that's what gets me in trouble every time!! lol  With that said, I would love to make fudge, but in a small quantity! Any ideas!?!

It's actually really nice right now, I'm sure there's a cold front looming somewhere, but it was in the mid-fifties yesterday, which in my book, is warm enough to grill!!! <grin>

Hey Umpa!

I always make Doug's crustless pumpkin pie ( during the holidays and I'm wondering if I can use Zero instead of xylitol!?! If so, is it 24 drops = 1/2 cup?

Thanks for the help! Looking forward to enjoying pumpkin pie without the sugar alcohol side effects! lol  :o

Thanks everyone! Pork would be a good idea too! We grilled a pork roast for dinner tonight!!! Yummy! Can't believe that we were able to grill in the middle of December, but I'm not complaining!!! lol   ::)

Dinner Recipes / Shredded Barbequed Chicken

My kids take turns cooking dinner once a week and we found this recipe and were able to convert to FTS friendly!! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!!   :o

Pre-heat oven to 325F

In a large skillet heat 2T. olive oil and brown 3 cloves of chopped garlic.
Add boneless, skinless chicken breasts and coat with garlic & oil.

Pour 12 oz. bottle of sugar free barbeque sauce over chicken. (I like the Walden Farms honey barbeque sauce)

Bring to a boil, cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours.

Shred chicken with 2 forks and add some of the sauce from the pan!!

YUMMY!!!! ;D

The only carbs are in the garlic!! (3 carbs)

We just got back from the beach with my sisters and all the families!! I had a large portion of turkey (white meat) and a spoonful of green beans (2 carbs)! Then I had a piece of Russell Stover sf candy (1 carb)!! I, of course was hungry later and made a little bit of turkey salad with mayo and a little handful of freshly grated romano cheese (0 carbs)!! Yummy!  ::)

Last year I made lots of low carb things like caulimash, mock sweet potatoes, and sf crustless pumpkin pie, but decided this year that I really didn't NEED all that other stuff and just stuck with the basics! I was happy and not uncomfortable and stuffed feeling! lol Much better choices for me!!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!   :D
