Just finished a chicken/black bean chili with plenty of sriracha and picamas. Gotta mix up the hot sauces

I'm eating a chicken vegetable soup. I put it in the crock pot last night and am having it for lunch today. All organic...chicken, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, onion, garlic, parsley, green beans, tomato sauce, and chicken broth. Yum!

Had my green smoothie and 2 boiled egg yolks for breakfast.

I had Hot Chicken Salad for lunch. And everything-flavored pretzel crisps with Helluva Good dip for dinner. 'Twas tasty.

I MUST try that grilled avocado stat. Sounds incred.

Are you one of ~those~ ppl who doesn't eat and drink at the same time? LOL

(I've heard mixed advice about this but I can't imagine eating a mel w/ no drink...)
YES. I don't like to drink right before I eat either because it kills my appetite. I generally have water after I eat. Sometimes I get a craving for sweet tea or coke. I'm more of an eater than drinker. Drinking gets in the way and I don't taste my food as well if I mix in between. I like OJ in the morning too, but only alone or after I eat to wash it all down, oh so refreshing.

I don't do this for health reasons but I found out that apparently it is better to not mix and some say wait 30 mins after eating before drinking. I don't do this. I drink right after I'm done eating.
I have read it's best not to drink while eating too. I just can't do it though- I get so thirsty when I eat!

Breakfast - I had a scrambled egg(in coconut oil) with pepper jack cheese and ate it with a paratha. Half an avocado and OJ. Let's hope that helps me only eat my small frozen lunch I brought in today.

Drinking coffee now.

Breakfast - I had 1/4 cup of sticky rice mixed with a sauteed shallot, half a cubanello, about 1/3 of a yellow pepper, and a whole bunch of chopped mushrooms. I topped the whole thing with a runny egg.

I'm going to have a banana soon. I'm starving today after accidentally skipping dinner last night.

Since I'm dieting finally - a whopping 330 calories and it sure felt like it...god help me! I have a banana as a snack for later on. It did taste good though.

It was surprisingly filling. I would have liked a little crunch from some granola with it though, but I don't have any.

I did a 1/2 C each low fat cottage cheese and canned peaches in juice and it was 150 calories. I should have put some cereal in it for crunch, dang! Next time.

Cheese and crackers and agave-sweetened "natural" ginger ale.

I'm going wild!

I smashed up an avocado and put fresh ground pepper and a super small amount of ground Pink sea salt and mad a sandwich with it. Yummy

I had an entire shredded zucchini sauteed with a minced garlic clove mixed with 1/4 cup sticky rice, a little bit of smoked gouda, and topped with a runny egg.

I have a banana later...

Josephine, I plan to make this soon and I'm sure that you can substitute tofu for paneer in any recipe. I just never thought of it until I saw it done.

Another option is when you're eating these frozen meals, add in something like cauliflower (even frozen steam-in-a-bag types) and mix it right in. You'd be surprised at how you can be filled up off of a small number of calories when it's such a large volume.

Thanks, that recipe looks good and easy(as long as the sauce is tasty). I've tried to make my own curries but it's so hard and I can never blend the spices right. I'm also impatient and don't retry right away. At this point I give up and am fine just finding a good paste/sauce to dump in there. I gotta take baby steps.

A bowl of the most delicious lobster bisque soup...soon to be followed by an Asian salad.

Little Debbie is the devil... Don't let her fool you.

Last night I made 2 homemade dressings for my salads. I used the Honey Dijon on my salad today and had tomato bisque soup with it. Of course, I had my green smoothie for breakfast. I love sharing this with my sweetie in the mornings before work. I have 2 boiled eggs left and plan to snack on those this afternoon. The protein really fills me up. Not planning on dinner unless it's another salad. 5 lbs to go before Vegas, so I can gain it all back in Vegas. I wish what happens in Vegas would stay in Vegas, but I'm sure the lbs will follow me back home.
