Some random thoughts for today….

Last week I was concerned about my weigh in, but it worked out ok.  Some weeks are down a little, some weeks down more.  Overall, I am averaging 2.3lbs per week.  I think some people do much better, but I am very happy with this progress!  I can’t think of another diet that I’ve ever done that has really come close.  I’ve forecasted out my goals in a spreadsheet and am targeting 2 lbs per week to get to my goal.  Anything over that is fantastic!

Why are the pancakes so good?  I had them for breakfast yesterday with some Walden Farms syrup and they were great!  The question is, where do I find high protein pancakes after Ideal Protein?  While the foods that are offered are great, I don’t know where to find high protein, low carb versions for down the road.  I’m worried that I’ll get used to having a mid afternoon snack of white cheddar ridges or a bar and will replace that with chips and a candy bar later!  I’m happy to hear any advice!

I’ve made a few dishes lately that turned out ok.  Thought I would share some.  Nothing special, but maybe will generate some ideas for you.  For the first, I had some mushrooms and some broccolini from the farmers market.  So, I sauteed the mushrooms, steamed the broccolini in a microwave safe dish and boiled the IP rotini.  Then I threw the broccolini and drained rotini in with the mushrooms and added a little bit of the Walden Farms Alfredo sauce.  Came out pretty good and was a nice lunch.  Only drawback was too many pans to cleanup.

If you are in a hurry, you can buy pre-cut veggies at many grocery stores.  I got a nice selection at Whole Foods and threw it together with some shrimp and some Walden Farms Sesame Ginger and a little Braggs Aminos.  Came out ok too.
