Those things sound good, but remember that nuts and fruit aren't allowed on Induction. Save them for later!

I thought maybe you were travelling down the grapevine or something.

Sorry, folks--can't access my recipe files from work. I'll try to post some things to the recipe thread this weekend, but at least I can get you started: first the recipe, then some notes.

Flourless peanut butter cookies:
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/clair
e-robinson/flourless-peanut-butter-coo
kies-recipe/index.html

This is the standard flourless peanut butter cookie recipe you can find everywhere. (The vanilla is optional, but nice if your also optional add-ins won't clash). Just sub in your non-sugar sweetener/s of choice. My personal preference includes at least a small bit of one of the polyols, for texture, but measure-for-measure Splenda works. No matter what you're using, they do not last for long--they taste better overnight than fresh, are too crumbly to be practical by day three or four. So make only what you're going to eat, or be prepared to use the rest for peanut butter crumb crusts.

Since I am quite often making these only for myself, I use flax meal instead of egg. Much easier to scale down! (What would I do with the leftover two-thirds of a beaten egg? -G-) One tbl. flax whisked into three tbl. just-boiled water = 1 egg, for anyone not familiar with that substitution.

Hey - AuntWillie - I am with you on TreadMill's food suggestions for breakfast sounding tasty.

I just emailed her to see if we could have the recipes of LC three-ingredient peanut butter cookies, chocolate mousse, or a slice of LC berries-and-cream pie with a nut crust would have a few carbs,

Yummy.

I was wondering about those peanut butter cookies, too!
I'm always looking for lc snack foods that can be used as a light meal.

NoTread - your thoughts on breakfast items sound more my style. ( LC three-ingredient peanut butter cookies, chocolate mousse, or a slice of LC berries-and-cream pie with a nut crust would have a few carbs, )

Do you have the recipes?

Woubbie - I am like you with the low blood sugar episodes. I eat some cheddar cheese in between meals and that seems to help me.

Needing breakfast probably has a lot to do with how your body handles blood sugars. There is not even a hint of Type 2 anywhere in my family, but hypoglycemia is pretty common. Even on low carb I still need to eat breakfast within a couple of hours of getting up or I will first get short-tempered, then get the shakes.

I can go much longer between meals than I used to, but I still seem to need to fuel up fairly frequently.

More often than not, I have burgers for breakfast.
I usually eat eggs if I am making them for James. Right now, Andrew has an omlet, James has sausages, and I have burgers. It is like a restaurant at meal time, seems like we all eat different thing!

Ah, breakfast. I've never understood why people insist that breakfast is required, particularly on LC but really just generally. The only times in my life that breakfast has ever held any appeal are the periods of calorie-restriction or nights that had nowhere near enough sleep following a very light or missed dinner. In other words, when I've been starving.

Though I am not paleo (you can have my cultured dairy when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers, and there are some other issues as well), I have gleefully embraced the concept of intermittent fasting. For women, they often recommend fourteen or fifteen hours, and overnight counts! So you can tell your doctor/concerned family/whomever that you're fasting for your health, and they stop trying to feed you before your body's awake enough to have any interest in food.

As for what to eat when hungry in the morning, I think my grandfather has the right idea. He says "Your stomach doesn't know what time it is", and while mine seems to have a sleep mode, it really doesn't _know_ that six AM = eggs and six PM = steak. Who made up those rules anyway?

Eat whatever appeals. People eat "breakfast for dinner" all the time; do it in reverse! Or just head straight for dessert, or whatever meal or snack you prefer. LC three-ingredient peanut butter cookies, chocolate mousse, or a slice of LC berries-and-cream pie with a nut crust would have a few carbs, generous quantities of healthy fats, and only a little less protein than eggs.

Woubbie: eat something! -G-

Meh... I'm not off to a good start! Thursday is our cursed "meeting" day (in which we sit around as an employee group and socialize) but there's only three of us here today and there's still carby junk!! And I ate some of it...

Besides that I did a dog walk early this morning (why can't it be this light and non-rainy all year 'round??) and had a slightly more relaxing morning than usual. My really big success has been to get the yard waste bin out to the curb for pick-up, and it is the right day for it!

I think I need to adopt your mantra too, Bearclaw, but for different reasons!

How about baked chicken thighs? Leftover steak from last night? Cheezburger? Anything goes, really. What smell really makes your mouth water? Celery sticks with cream cheese?

*stomach growls*

Damn. When's lunch?

I'm just beginning to start the 2nd week of my Induction Phase. The only problem I seem to be having is that I don't really like eggs and bacon for breakfast. I wish there was something better to eat for breakfast. emoticon

Lately, I've just been drinking a protein shake and then waiting for lunch when I have more of a meat appetite.

Keep repeating that mantra, Bearclaw.

Totalled my food from yesterday and am really surprised that it didn't go over "budget". Last night I would swear I was eating everything in sight. I know why - I'm a bit shorter on sleep even than usual and I'm looking for energy calories - but it's still scary. I don't usually feel that out of control!

Having a better day today so far. Kids drove me up the wall this morning, but, so, what else is new?

Have a great day, all!

Trying my hardest to remember first principles of low carb while dealing with my messy marriage. Eggs, veggies, cheese, nuts, meat....eggs, veggies, cheese, nuts, meat....eggs, veggies, cheese, nuts, meat.

Maybe I'll go for a jog, today.

I hope everyone is doing ok.
