Two Days of Baking (and an change)

I ran to the grocery early yesterday morning to pick up a few things for a soup and bread lunch for some friends. I invited three ladies over to bake homemade dog biscuits at noon so provided them with a light lunch. I went by a friend's house and pick fresh mint to go in the dog biscuits and had all the supplies out and ready for them to bake. It was fun and each woman went home with two dozen dog biscuits.

Today, I have been invited by a group of Jewish women to bake Challah. I’m not Jewish, but am honored and thrilled to meet some new women and have a fun and educational day. That may spur me to get back to baking bread.

And, I’m switching diets, sort of in the middle of the stream. I started out doing Keto/LCHF with a 5% Challenge and just can't keep it up. I want to find a way to lose the extra pounds without having to give up any one (or more) categories of food. I will have to add more exercise, more water, smaller portions, less alcohol, etc. Whatever it takes, but not doing without one food category or another. It has to be something I can live with for the rest of my life!

    I don't give up food groups, just unhealthy foods like highly processed foods and concentrate on fresh meat/veggies/fruits/seeds/nuts/heal
    thy fats/legumes/and a little high quality grains like quinoa or brown rice. Anything with tons of chemicals in it or long ingredients is not on my list. They are treats to be eaten rarely.

    That is so cool that you are going to be baking Challah. Are you making egg challah or water challah? Hope you'll share a picture.

    I feel the same way about the keto diet or any diet for that matter. Any diet that totally eliminates a food is something that will not work for me. This is why I love the Spark diet. It incorporates lots of different foods which will ensure that you will stay on the diet (For me anyway). My weight loss is slow but the weight is coming off which is good and I am going to keep following the plan and exercising. Good luck to you.

    I agree completely. These changes in our life style are for the long run and there is a price for doing something that doesn't make you happy. My DH can attest to mood changes when you do something that is not right for you. My dog would love you. I got a cute and funny book for dog treats, but haven't used it yet. The book is written as if the dog were the author. I'll tell you the title when I find the book. emoticon

    Yes, it is so important to find a way of eating that you can stick with.
