I thought I was doing a great thing by cooking 6 different recipes Sunday and a whole roast in the crock pot Monday, but 6 meals a day and 3 people have almost depleted it all :( Next weekend, I'm gonna have to do more... or something.

I'm on day 4, and have QUICKLY realized that I need to cook ahead of time!! (I told my husband that I feel like all I do is cook, eat, and work.). I found some recipes on the 6WBMO forums (which won't send me my password after I registered on the site... grrr!)that I'm going to make up today/tomorrow- the tangy personal sized meatloaf, vegetable quiche to go, etc. I hope they turn out all right!! Last night, I made up "Cafe Rio Green Enchilada Sauce" (with some modifications) which is found over on ourbestbites.com. We had it after church today, and it was great! Just poured it over my 1/2 cup of rice, and 2 oz of chicken. And it's like all free veggies in it. :)

I am making the fish again today - that's how much I like it! It really makes up the difference for no salt!

I am going to order that nutritional yeast. I have been reading up on it. I am so glad you told us about it because I would never have come near it. I am so ignorant about yeast products. It sounds great!

OK ladies I found a new magic bullet!!! Quick and easy and amazingly tasty!!!

Jan - don't gag!! It's that nutritional yeast I told you about. Sprinkled on Popcorn? eh - ok - not terrible but not something I'd crave.....get ready.....

It makes an AWESOME broth to cook stuff in!!! I cooked swai (milder and meatier than tilapia) in a frying pan with a little onion/garlic powder and I made a broth of about 1 cup water and 2-3 heaping teaspoons of the stuff. I added it to 2 filets and let it go. Meanwhile I steamed a frozen bag of cauliflower/broccoli mix. Drained the veggies, sprinkled onion/garlic powder on them and some of the yeast flakes (didn't want to over do!) The fish was done cooking both sides in 15 min. the broth had turned into a thicker gravy/cheesy like sauce. WISH I TOOK A PICTURE! I put a serving of fish on a plate and surrounded it with the veggies. This was amazingly good. DH couldn't BELIEVE how fast I had it ready either! Leftovers the next day were GREAT.

This morning, I took a baked potato, sliced it and started browning them in a pan with some chopped onion. Added garlic/onion powder and fresh ground pepper. Added 2 BIG handfuls of baby spinach, let it cook for a minute and added 1/2 a cup of water mixed with the yeast flakes again - about 3 tsps in 1/2 a cup this time. Added the mixtured a bit at a time while crumbling in 2 turkey sausage patties (on plan). Added the rest of the broth, stirred it up, pushed it to one side of the pan and added 3 eggs to the other side, put the lit on and cooked it on low - flipping the eggs in between another meal in less than 15 minutes and again, DH and I loved it!!!

So, this somewhat solves my dilemma of what to cook stuff IN. It also give a flavor that takes away any sort of "bland" that you might feel about giving up salt.

Here is a link to the nutritional make up of this stuff - nothing bad!!

I bought it on Amazon. I've been googling recipes etc for it. Most people (vegetarians use this a lot) call it "Nooch". I love quick meals!!!

I made up the quantities and it all turned out great! Just don't sniff the stuff inside the can when you get it, it might turn you off!! And keep it away from your doggies or you won't have any left - they love it (and unlike Xylitol, Nooch is good for your Pooch!!) I've been giving my DH's dog my hard boiled egg yolks rolled in Nooch and he LOVES them!!

So google it, and decide for yourself if it's worth a try :)

Now that sounds interesting - I'm not sure I could behave around muffins though...

We made tuna salad yesterday. And shrimp (so easy, does it even count??) My DH is so nice to prep veggies for both of us. His tuna salad is never as pop as mine :)

Today I'm making a BIG OL'SALAD!!

Update on the muffins: you can substitue 1/2 c canned pumpkin for the applesauce and add in some pumpkin pie spice. Sooo good! I made two batches today, so I can be POP while I'm at my boyfriend's house this weekend and at jury duty on Monday. I'll keep playing with flavors and let you know what works!

Hi! I did lots of cooking Sunday, to prepare for the week. I mostly did sweet potatoes, rice, and divided up meats. Yesterday I made muffins from the Provida website. They are sooo good! Here's the recipe:

o 1/2 c Ideal sweetener


Beat egg whites until frothy (but not stiff). Fold in the other ingredients. Portion batter to make 12 regular muffins. Bake at 375 approximately 14 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Can be refrigerated or frozen.
