Hi Everyone, I've been busy for a couple of days. What a lovely surprise to see so many Christians on the board.
Couple of things. I checked out FitDay. I'm hooked. I go there and put in my menues pretty dutifully. I can't commit to doing it forever, but it will be nice to have something I can track back to if I ever run into problems.
I've also been asking around for some new things to eat to prevent boredom. Here are the ideas I've gotten that will work well on Induction:
I tried the Mock Danish Last night. I liked it. Will have to keep my "sweets" in balance though as I get such cravings for them. (Lots of recipes for this on the board, do a search for Mock Danish.)
Zucchini Chips: Thinly slice a zucchini, pan fry, then bake in a 400 degree over for around 10 minutes (keeping a close eye on them). Season with salt or something else to your liking.
Sweet Pork Rinds: 1 bag plain pork rinds, 10 pkg sweet n low, 1/2 stick butter, 1 T cinnamon.
Drizzle the melted butter over rinds. Put cinnamon and sweet n low in a bag and shake the rinds with them until coated.
Cheese Krispies: Freshly grated parmeson cheese in small piles on cookie sheet. Spread to 4" circles. Bake 425 degrees appox 5 miin, watching carefully.
Jello - "pudding": Make 2 pkg of jellow according to directions. When completed (but not refrigerated) add 8 oz softened cream cheese. Mix w/ electric mixer. Put in refrig. till set. "Puddinglike" consistency.
I pan-fry cheddar cheese. Sprinkle small piles of grated cheese into a pan on med. heat. Flip once. I eat them hot or cold. They are great!
Someone else suggested stir fry. Great idea. You can put anything into them. There should be many ways to do this one.
Also look up Pizza and Meatza recipes. (Just do a search on either word). These also look easy and very good.
I'm anxious to try all of these out. Praise God for variety.
I lots 8.5 pounds since I started Atkins last Monday. I'm very excited at the results. So is DH.
God's blessings to you all. May you enjoy your LCing.
