    told you if you look you will find alternatives.my oldest son goes into shock and can die if he ate eggs so i subsitute them all the time.one not mentioned there if you want to make a biscuit type or any recipes which needs stiff egg whites i reduce the amount of fat in the recipe and used whipped cream instead of the whipped egg whites.usually comes out good. emoticon

Day 84 countdown to 100% compliance on a special eating plan.

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Probably I will not stick much to today's eating plan. I am going to lunch with a friend. It is a seafood restaurant. On the rustic side.

Lobster and butter--here I come!

    Pick your menu items carefully ... skip the biscuits. You don't want to wear the biscuits.

Day 85 count down -aiming at 100% compliance with a suggested eating plan for me

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Well-- I made the corn bread I could have yesterday. Too much temptation for me! I made one fairly small pan of this. 6" by 8" approximately. Yup--ate it all. So most of yesterdays eating plan foods did not get eaten. This is the first bready, muffin kind of food I have had. I really miss that kind of food. Eggs are on the plan only one day in 4. So maybe I can't have something bready except one day in 4. That is probably a good plan.


I will have to cheat however. Eggs are not on the same days as the grains. I will have to move eggs to a new day. If I eat these only one day in four, I am still "rotating." I hope that is OK. The rotation is to keep down reactions to foods. Fatigue is definitely my basic reaction. And I feel really fatigued today. Also feel like I am retaining water.


My car is getting the brakes done. So I am stuck at home. That is OK except no water aerobics today! emoticon emoticon or even tomorrow!

Variety!

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Oh yes, this eating plan has veriety. A little too much variety. That is the problem. Each day has a different list of foods. I used to have a sandwich often. Well--there is no bread unless I can make it from that day's food list. And that is nearly impossible! Corn bread works but I still have to fudge it because eggs are not on the same day corn is listed. emoticon


Everything repeats of course every 4th day. I seem to have to keep freezing small amounts of things an save it a couple of days. So I have all these small labeled containers in the freezer now. I am continually fishing for something.

It is definitely a learning experience.

    Sounds like you have figured out a way to make it work. How are you dealing with meals for DH? When I have been on a special diet that was always my problem with trying to make meals for my family.
Hang in there and let us know how this is all working.

    Yes, it is difficult in the beginning. I remember how long meal planning took me when I first started SP. Of course, yours is a little (ok, a lot) more complex, but you'll get there. Hang in there.
