hard time
« on: January 07, 2011, 11:09:54 PM »
I have done so well on this plan over the last year, getting 20lbs off etc. etc. but now that the weather is cold i am finding it extremely difficult again.  And i thought I had this thing licked!  Any one else dealing with this winter syndrome?

This might help you warm up on cold days.  Try making some soup with Bertolli Alfredo Sauce, heavy cream and water.  Steam and chop up some broccoli and add to this mixture with some shredded cheese.  Be mindful of portion sizes.  I was just thinking today how excited I am about Spring coming...even moreso about how much weight I can lose by then.  It also might help you to buy some different herbal teas.  Hang in there!

What helps me when I want something warm, creamy and filling:
boil one bag of frozen broccoli in 3 cups of chicken broth, put in food processor with one block of softened cream cheese, add seasonings to taste. It makes the creamiest richest cream of broccoli soup you will ever have!

I make a black bean chili too. I'd love to see Umpa's recipe and see what I can do to jazz mine up!

Did you order the new FTS Bakery Book?  There are quite a few scone recipes in there.

maybe you can take jicama thinly sliced and chopped with cinnamon/xylitol and use it in pancakes

SherriPie, thanks! I'm like Doug and Umpa. I say there is a substitute for EVERYTHING you want. I love the challenge of finding it. I just need somebody to tell me how to make some nice fat dumplings!
