... wow... Your idea is a good one, there are better options out there. Like you said, maybe he will eventually "get it"... Trail mix is also good if he likes nuts and mixed dried fruits.

Well, good luck and keep me posted! emoticon

He's a pain in the butt emoticon
We have eliminated grains so I'm trying to get him away from sandwiches. All he used to eat was ham sandwiches or fast food. Now he has 2 shakes, its gotta be ready made shakes so I found these EAS Advant EDGE Carb Control ready to-Drink Shake, they are not horrible, have no sugar or carbs, 17 grams of protein. Way better then the Special K one he was eating, what a joke they are! He will not sit down for breakfast on a work day, hes a grab and go.

He's a superintendent (big boss) for a construction company so his day is crazy insane, its like a kindergarten teacher, EVERYONE wants his attention constantly, he's either on the phone, on the computer or walking the job on the phone with 5 guys trailing behind him all shouting out questions. High stress crazy job, but he likes it. He won't prepare his lunch but our son works with him and is Mr. nutrition bodybuilder gym guy, HIS lunch sound like everything you've mentioned above LOL. He will pack food for his dad if I tell him what to put but getting him to sit down and eat it is touch or go. He drinks 2 shakes in the morning but lunch is whatever he grabs. Hes trying not to eat bread so he's been eating at Leeroy Selmons, which is not horrible for fast food I guess.

After writing all this, I think the best thing to do is make him a cheat sheet of fast food he can eat, he might get better about eating lunch but I'm going to be realistic and work with what he will do LOLOL

Cheryl, he could pack a cooler of:

- fruit
- cheese
- jerky (room temperature)
- salad in a jar
- eggs: deviled eggs, boiled, eggs filled with hummus (if allowed)
- veggies
- sandwiches
... anything that can be eaten cool/cold.

... does this sound doable?

Erin, I bought mine from Stoneberry it's like a Fingerhut company. I found that Fingerhut carries them too.

I have 2 stove top smokers:

- Nordic Ware Stovetop Smoker
- Cameron Stovetop Smoker

THE COST:
_________
Nordic Ware: The cost: $79.00 / payments of $7.99/month

www.stoneberry.com/catalog/search.cm
d?
form_state=searchForm&searchterm=stoR>vetop+smoker\


NOTE: I like this one because it has a thermometer and it is large enough to cook a whole chicken. It comes with 2 types of wood chips. You probably know this already, but according to the cookbook smoking temps should stay between 190 - 200... It usually warms up in under 30 minutes on a high flame, then you turn it down to a medium flame the rest of the way. Smoking begins when smoke starts coming out of the vent. You can do dry or wet smoking. I have only done dry smoking so far.

Cameron: The cost: Small: 27.00 - 30.00 ; Large: 39.00 - 49.00

I purchased more wood chips, I now have: pecan, adler, mesquite, hickory and apple. I have used hickory and oak. I liked both.

... I bought the Cameron for when I am cooking smaller amounts. I haven't used it yet so I can't comment on how it works.

I do highly recommend the Nordic ware smoker. It does not smoke the house up much at all and I don't have and over head vent. I confirmed with Nordic Ware if I absolutely needed an exhaust over the stove and was told that I didn't have to have one. So far I have smoked:

- chicken breasts and thighs with whole green onions (marinated in jerk seasonings)
- pork chops
- country ribs
... all turned out delicious and does not take long to cook.

If you have more questions let me know. ~ Dee

I watched the video, amazing. Are they expensive?
I smoke a lot of things back home, but we didn't bring our outside smoker with us, just takes up to much space. I have cold smoked salmon and shrimp, besides many different meats with higher temps. Now you have me thinking about doing my own bacon. I wonder so you wouldn't render it out, what temp would be good for pork bellies to smoke a colder temp maybe?

Breakfast, I was thinking about doing chia a few times a week; soaking overnight in almond milk with vanilla stevia and cinnamon.
I am an egg gal mostly or green smoothies.

My DD does this a lot; where she chops an apple up and scrambles it with 2 eggs, cinnamon and vanilla stevia and some times even a nut butter with warmed up honey poured over it. She also makes it like an omelet when she wants maple syrup and mocks a pancake, adding butter to it as well.

Walk through your journey with a loving open heart and as well mind. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

... Thanks Linda, that's sounds delicious I will have to try that. I love TJ's and will have to try the bacon. I also just bought a smoker and can smoke my own. I have apple wood chips. Still learning the basis of smoking but so far I love it. I bought the Nordic Ware Stovetop smoker

Just had one of my favorite breakfasts--smoked salmon and cream cheese omelet with dill. Hollandaise would have been nice, but that will have to be next time. Added some Trader Joe's Apple Smoked Uncured bacon. Mmmm!

I thought it would be nice to post meal ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks...

We could post meals ideas for:

- quick meals
- main meals
- snacks
- crock pot / slow cooker
... using minimally processed products to prepare them. Keeping it as close to primal as possible.

emoticon emoticon emoticon

Breakfast ideas:
____________
- scrambled eggs with Jimmy Deans Breakfast Sausage Crumbles. (turkey or pork)

- scrambled eggs with spinach, green onions & mushrooms (organic cheese, optional if using dairy)

- fried eggs, bacon, 1/2 cup of sliced apples sauteed in butter or coconut oil with pecans or walnuts.
