made this recipe tonight but with several tweaks. Instead of Italian sausage i used lean ground beef and used part skim mozzarella and low fat cottage cheese instead of full fat. For added protein i added a container of tofu in with the cottage cheese. For added nutrition to the sauce i added mushrooms onion and spinach. This came amazing. I will post the nutrition info with the changes I made if wanted. Here's the recipe without my tweaks

https://lowcarbyum.com/low-carb-egg...agna-casserole/

I processed all of the spaghetti squash from the farmers market. just waiting for it to cool so I can put it in the freezer. we are almost ready for winter. I like to keep extra on hand as weather can be bad here. a few years ago we had seven feet of snow and couldnt leave the house for well over a week.
Weigh in will be November 3rd or 4th. Hoping for good results. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Hello Maral and Janet. I am sorry for being quiet for so long. I have been very busy and haven't used the computer too much. As far as diet I am doing OK I guess. I had to change my diet even more.

I went to my doctors appointment and my exams showed that I have OA on both knees. The inflammation on my ankles and other joints on the body are just that inflammation but he also mentioned to me that could also be an early symptom of OA on those joints. I also have OA on the lower back and that is why I have so much pain there. He also told me that I have fibromialgia but he doesn't think I have RA.

He thinks my lack of energy and tiredness could be related to my inflammation. He is going to do some cortisone shots on my knees to help me with the pain and so I can be more active. He wanted to put me on some medicine to help me with the fibromialgia but I refused. He thinks if I change my diet that can also help me with the symptoms. He wants me to follow an antiinflammatory diet. Last week I started the AIP diet which is a very strict Paleo diet.

Things that can cause inflammation and that I am removing from my diet are nightshades, grains, gluten, sugar, beans, coffee, dairy, eggs,nuts and some seeds. I see it more like a Phase 2 of SBD with out legumes and nuts. After certain time I can reintroduce more of the foods and see if I dont' have any reactions to it. However, I can't reintroduce, gluten, dairy and sugar.

Oh, Izzy, What a nice day to see you are back. Please come in and talk. Glad also you have still been trying. and not fallen off.
So sorry, to see you have been in so much pain.
Just remember that food heals and in time you will find plan to help you heal.
We some time, thinks Diet is just to loose weight. It really is more> To heal body and cells. Also talking about food>Some that we know that are good for body can hurt it in some people.
Do you take Turmeric? That is to heal and help Inflammation. See {if you do not do now see if you can.and use it.
But you also have to add to turmeric with black pepper, or crushed red pepper.{I use the latter.
Also how about Oma 3 s?
Some times you have to start reading every thing>and play around and see what will help.
So glad you are back.
You will heal and use this year to learn and play around with what may work. For Next year, you>You will be on a healthier healing road.
Do not close your self off.and always we all have to fight hard to get to the easier road.
Just takes time.
Each day is a gift. and body and cells can heal.

Good thoughts our friend.

Thanks girls

Janet I used to take tumeric with pepper not on a daily basics but here and there. Now I am taking it daily but with out the pepper. If you don't use the pepper it does work but it takes longer for the body to absorb it. I pretty much use it on every thing I cook

I am also taking the hydrolized collegen, D3 50,000 and Vit K3 and omega 3. What I am noticing that when I eat sugary stuff my knees hurt the most also when I eat gluten the next day I am in a lot of pain in most of my joints. But when I got my allergy test done I was not allergic to gluten.

I know it will take time and lots of discipline. Discipline is my biggest problem, I am very good for one or two days and then I go back to my old habits

I hope you both had a great day yesterday and stayed away from all the candy.

I went to Dr. and had a check up. and my blood work is Beyond great.I also had Hep c blood test today{Because they say We should if born between 1945_1965.
I had my breasts done also> and Normal.
Just have to keep moving and doing what I have been.But I must keep saying that I could be better{And I hope I get there.
Just sometimes> Those slips are still there.
I got Tofu today.
I thought on Turmeric that u had to use pepper. But glad to know u do notand still works.
I have been useing that for over 5 years.
I was kinda wondering about protien levels> For I eat very little meat.
But It came out good on numemers.
I also read alot on foods and heathier stuff.
I think that most things can be healed in body and we can change things.
Glad you are back. I enjoy reading what u are doing.
I have now that I have been going to eye Dr. on dry eyes. Happens as we age.
And yes> No candy for me.
In fact we do not get kids>
So that helps.

Those are great news Janet, super happy for you

How was your weekend? I eat too much candy I need to make sure this week I have none and I stay on plan.

Tomorrow morning I am getting a much needed haircut and then will stop at DSW to see if I can find some boots. I am going to Texas for the week of Thanksgiving and all my boots are high heels and I can't wear any high heels right now due to my knee pain. I also need to go to the grocery for veggies an do food prep for the week.

I wish you both a great week!

That is such a great gift Janet. Chicken chili sounds good too not sure about the tofu though.

I have never like the diet soda but I was very addicted to coke and about 8 years ago decided enough was enough and never drink coke or any other sodas again. At the beginning was very hard, I used to get very bad migraines and I also got like flue symptoms but after a month or all withdraw symptoms were gone.

I went to three different shoe stores and I only found 1 pair that I really liked but they didn't have my size.

Janet meat loaf sounds good, I think I will make some for my husband and the boys this Friday

I have to go grocery shopping today (been trying since Monday) I have no veggies in the fridge. Then I need to wash towels and sweep and mop downstairs, so no much for me today.
