Now, you've made me start thinking about the MIM's too.... I need to get some flax meal though, I'm out.
I make mine in a round (6") casserole dish, then split it horizontally, then toast it and put butter and whatever on it. They are so good now and then!
Suzeanne, Enjoy your vacation, even hectic, it should be fun.
EWEFLUFFY IS NOW KICK-SS
TODAY IS THE TOMORROW YOU WORRIED ABOUT YESTERDAY. GET ON WITH IT!!
BEFORE YOU CAN START A NEW CHAPTER - YOU HAVE TO FIRST TURN THE PAGE!
sigh... Wednesday. Friday is supposed to be the end of my "three-week anti-inflammatory diet", and I am supposed to start adding things back. Problem is I haven't been as strict as I should be the last week. I was traveling last week, and am leaving for a family reunion tomorrow. I have been trying to both follow the diet my naturopathic doctor gave me, and stay low-carb at the same time. That really hasn't worked very well. When I can only eat chicken, turkey, fish, berries, vegetables (some), nuts and seeds, my options are really limited. I know some people successfully eat like that normally, but I just can't do it. So my carbs have been too high, and all my cravings are back with a vengeance. This morning I pretty much decided to throw in the towel, and start fresh on Monday... but I haven't actually eaten anything off the diet yet today. I'm worried I will turn around 6 months from now and wonder why I ever went off my plan.
So, for now, my plan is:
Today-Sunday: try to keep as low carb as possible, but not worry about the other diet for now
Aug 5-12: a solid week on my "anti-inflammatory diet"
Aug 12-21: add back one of cheese, eggs, gluten, every three days
Aug 22: back to my naturopathic doc to see what she says about it all...
Aug 26-30: Fat Fast to get back in ketosis before school (work) starts
followed by two weeks of Induction again.
The worst part? With all this crazy dieting, I have actually GAINED weight this month!!! arggg!
School starts back tomorrow. I took the twins to see Smurfs 2 its was pretty good movie. Its raining cats and dogs tho so we got wet to say the least.
I am happy to that the month of July is about over and I can start a new month of weight loss. The month of July has not been very good one for me and my weight loss. I have to go to the Dr for my weigh in on monday or tuesday and she is not going to be happy with me only like 2 pounds this month. I am heavy so she thinks i should lose way more than that but it is what it is. I cant work out 4 hours a day my falling apart body just wont let me. 20/30 minutes is all I can do then that kills my knee that hurts already anyway.
This is the link to the Atkins website. even tho I dont fully do it the atkins way anymore I do still eat from the atkins food list/eat. I just count carbs different than they do.
Watch this about the atkins program.
Happy Hump Day! I love MIMs but had sorta forgotten about them. I've got to add them back into my food plans. Has anyone made more than one at a time?
My cold is lots better but the air quality around this area is bad right now - I feel like an itchy (eyes) dust magnet. And this industry (seed production) produces even more dust out in the mill.
Last Monday night my beloved laptop that got me through two and a half degree programs had a massive breakdown and more or less died. I did the recovery thing, but now it's restored to 2007 conditions - a bazillion updates behind! Nothing works well. I'm going to email my favorite contract IT guy to see if it's worth rehabilitating it or if I should just get a new one. In the meantime, I might be sketchy in my check-ins here. After sitting at a desk all day I don't want to sit at my desktop computer at home if I don't have to. Let's hope Ms. Laptop can be resuscitated!

James - here is a link to a minute in a muffin recipe (MIM)
Haven't tried this one yet, but they are all very similar with the egg and the flaxseed being the star of the show.
Flaxseed is very good for keeping regular - if you know what I mean.

James, it stands for either Muffin In a Mug or Muffin In a Minute. Low carb and usually flaxseed based.

Maw, last week I was sort of in a mood for MIM's also. I also wanted some hot cereal and look up on line for flax meal cereal. I found one it was like 3 or 4 Tb flax, 2 T peanut butter (but I used Tahini) and some splenda and cinnamon and then just put boining water on it and it sort of cooks like instant hot cereal right in the bowl. Oh I think I put a bit of heavy cream in it also. Really yummy. I also made a pancake out of the MIM recipe putting it on a griddle instead of the microwave. Put butter and SF syrup on it and a couple of over medium eggs on top. What an awesome breakfast that was. Just some ideas....

Took the dog for a walk this morning. Will pick up more apples (I had them all up off the ground yesterday, there's most of a bucket out there on the ground this morning) and then thin the late apples. Errands this morning, bridge this afternoon with some friends of Mom.
I've been having variations on MIMs for breakfast since I've been here. Yesterday and today I made them with just a bit of cinnamon and sweetener, sliced them and made sandwiches. Before that I poured cream over them and ate them like hot cereal. Good both ways, and easy. And, for some reason, that seems to be what I'm in the mood for. Though I did get a quart of yogurt to have for breakfasts before I leave.
Have fun, Suzanne!
Suzanne - that trip sounds wonderful! Hope you have a really good time.
Today, I have to pick up my mother and go visit my sister who is at an assisted living retirement village - she has Parkinson's and can't live alone anymore. It's always a bit of a downer, but after the visit, we will go eat lunch and shake it off. It's so sad to see someone deteriorate when they are still so young.
Then I need to get home and clean the house.
Hope everyone has a great hump day!

So, we leave tonight for NYC and the a week in wildwood with a few other families. I just have to survive visiting my mother in NYC and the crest should be great! Three families sharing a beach house. It will be crazy, but fun. James should love the beach.
It won't be a relaxing time though!
