Well the irony is I am literally across the road! The 2 girls are 6 and 10 (almost 11) and the boy is 6. The families tend to do some joint dinners so I am probably going to be cooking 3 nights for them. I figured if I get the kids involved, it will help expand their food choices. AND show the parents its possible to make something besides ramen and a handful of carrots for the kids. Just takes some prep as we all know.

Enjoying my morning off so making me a veggie omelette!

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

Kierae,

Maybe you need to "pretend" you're going downtown to the office to work. What do we preach to our members? "Take your food with you". Yeah...we say that all the time.

Get your little cooler bag, load it up at night before bedtime and prepare for the next day at work.

Same thing happens to me when I visit my daughter in Texas. Although she's had quite a weight-loss journey herself, she keeps a different kitchen. When I go there, I"m "lost" when it comes to meals. Meals and snacks are geared to her ten year old daughter who is a tiny little thing but who has a tremendous sweet tooth (yeah..bothers Grandma a bit, but not my decision to make.)

Anyway, you KNOW what to do...so do it. Right? You haven't said how old these children are that you're sitting, but unless they're on baby food, maybe your presence can gradually have a healthy impact on them and their food choices. That would be a good omen for them having a healthier diet in the future.

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.

There is nothing like cooking at someone else's house to verify the fact that we all cook differently and use different products. My MIL's kitchen is the antithesis on mine. "What do you mean you don't have any xanthan gum? Do you have any guar gum then?" LOL.

LOL I WISH I was on a yacht swilling margaritas.

My breakfast SUCKED this morning: coffee and a mozarella cheese stick. I went home about 1030 and grabbed my leftover greenbeans curry style and brought them over to the house I am at and ate those. I am going to have to bring a container of eggwhites and my already diced up veggies over here to make my breakfast in the morning. That and my nonstick pan!

Today egg substitute, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, mazarella cheese, olive oil, decaf coffee and flavoring. Plus baked zucchini left over. Calories a little high but that is okay. Eat a little less on my dinner and snack then, to round it out.

Breakfast is the jump start of the day, no one needs to tell you huh? One time is okay. It probably set you back much at all. Know we all slip up, like my banana for breakfast a while back. It is okay and each of us is not perfect, just in the process of becoming.

I guess JayDee thought she might get away with not eating all day and not get a spanking but here I am with my paddle. (Kierae and Pam must be swilling margaritas on some yacht somewhere. LOL.)

Seriously, I have done the same thing. I think it's how I stayed so thin for most of my life. I would literally feel sick and realize I had forgotten to eat anything all day. Once it happened to me at work and one of the docs asked me what I had eaten that day and I said, "a.......er..........uh....um......." Busted!!

Think of this as a detox/mini fast. Your pipes were rested. You are now ready for a healthy refill. LOL.

Regarding the Morningstar - they are good. My kids like them for making egg mcmuffins (versus the real deal). I end up chopping them up to add some umph to the omelette versus using meat. I buy mine at costco where its mucho cheaper in bulk.

No breakfast today and no lunch.

Had an early morning doctor's appt. and didn't eat in case they wanted blood work to avoid an extra trip. Nope...no blood work.

Then had some errands to run which ran longer than expected, so no lunch.

On the way home, I stopped at a little health food store where I get my nuts, flax, and some other things that are hard to find in the regular grocery store.

Mind you, this is Florida and it's HOT...traffic is a bear....but I did manage to get a bottle of water at the health food store and sampled a few of their healthy offerings...literally three small cubes of three different kinds of bread that were really good and had grains and flax in them.

It's now 3 p.m. and I still haven't eaten although I'm having a glass of milk.

Yes, I DO know better!!

With the banana, since no veggies, my only choice there. I am aware no fruit for P1 though, thanks. But I still lost 2# this week. Whohoo! Cut out the meat, eating fish, eggs, soy milk, and low fat cheeses.

The two weeks without fruit was one of the worst periods of my life. Don't laugh, I'm serious!! I would rather go through labor and delivery again than be fruitless. ROFLMBO!!

It's a good motivator to keep me on plan so I don't have to go back to phase one. No cravings, no weight gain, no phase 1.

So far since last July 23 when I started my diet I have never cheated enough to have to. Thank goodness!!

I am still P1 and not adding cereal yet but it sure sounds good. Today, I had egg beaters, banana, yogurt, decaf coffee and flavoring. Also NF milk. Was away from home but still made okay choices. Had one of those hotel breakfasts they serve.

Sorry, Terri, I didn't see your question until today. I had the 'Relay for Life' and didn't spend much time online. Didn't sleep at the relay, so came home and took nap and went to bed early Sat. night.

Wonderful Kashi cereal. Today I had egg substitute, olive oil,mozzarella cheese, turkey bits, and peas for my vegetable. Couldn't find anything else. Oh, and applesauce, cause I need to use it up, plus decaf and flavoring.

I am not so wild about all those sugar substitues but glad they are out there for others to enjoy.

Torani and DaVinci make sugar free syrups - the one that coffee shops use in lattes. Normally you can only find a couple basic flavorings at your local stores like vanilla and hazelnut. You can order them online via www.netrition.com who has them cheaper than I can buy locally, no tax and they have a one price shipping. I keep several on hand for desserts, to add to smoothies, etc.

Today's breakfast is COFFEE with half and half since I have been awake most the night with Ms Ali and a veggie omelet with red peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, mozarella cheese and diced morningstar sausage patty in it.

I just threw it in there. The stalk is getting down to the core and pretty old. It tasted good. The farmers' market had baby bok choy last Saturday. I had this left and didn't buy any. I've never had the baby. The rest of the vegetables may have toned it down a little. I have lots of cheese, but haven't eaten much since SB. Salsa pulls it all together.

I've been eating cottage cheese with cinnamon and sf vanilla Torani syrup, good for desert at dinner.

It sounds like there is still hope for me yet. LOL. I was relieved to find that I could be hungry at 8:30 because I tend to be skeptical if things will work out for me. I don't get my snack in the morning any more either. I really need to try harder.

I am with you - I struggle with eating breakfast "promptly". You really have to retrain yourself to eat within an hour of waking up if it isn't your norm. I know when I started SB I struggled, and then I found myself getting hungry promptly in the morning - basically woke my metabolism up.

Now that I am not focused on losing, I have slide. I have my coffee at 6am. I normally eat breakfast between 830 - 10am (which is why I normally don't do a mid morning snack).

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

Thanks for the suggestion, Graapevine. I might make that for brunch sometime. It really sounds good.

I'm really weird. Breakfast has been hard for me to learn to eat. I never had breakfast in my life until I started on the South Beach diet last year.

At first I tried a lot of different things suggested in the South Beach book for breakfast and either my hypoglycemia couldn't handle it or my stomach. I actually prefer the fruit for my carb for breakfast if my blood sugar will tolerate it - either a half grapefruit or small orange. I love spinach though and eat it as often as possible. I could handle the scrambled eggs with spinach around 11 but I have to eat before then.The goal for me is to eat within an hour of when I get up at 7 but I find I can't do that so I aim for within and hour and a half to two hours and I can do that. Most fruit doesn't trigger me if I have been compliant the day before so I can usually handle a serving at breakfast if I have a lot of protein with the meal and no other carbs. I like to get 2 or 3 servings of fruit in a day. My dietitians and MD would prefer I get 3 or 4 but that's pushing it for me. They encourage me to try to eat a fourth of an apple. LOL. To me this sounds weird. What do you do with the other 3/4 of an apple? It turns brown and even if you put it in lemon juice it still looks icky. Something like an orange has segments and this is doable but an apple? Strange. Maybe someone knows a better way to save part of an apple.

Everyone's breakfasts sound so nutritious and Beachy that I hesitate to post mine. LOL.

I had 4 egg whites scrambled in 2 tsp light transfat free margarine, 2 strips of lower sodium bacon (yes I know it isn't Beachy - lol), and a half grapefruit. No veggies. I can't have both veggies and fruit for breakfast with my hypoglycemia and my stomach doesn't handle veggies that early anyway.

I agree peanut butter is good for you but was concerned that is the only thing you are doing - especially with no midmorning snack. It isn't much energy to carry you from your last evening snack/meal until your lunch. I understand that it is working for you now but at some point if you find yourself stalling out, you may want to revisit this. South Beach recommends 3 meals and 3 snacks (or 2 snacks in phase 2) because most of us have stalled out our metabolism by skipping meals, etc.

Please don't take offense - I don't expect ya to be perfect nor do you need to apologize. Just making my observations from experience. emoticon

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

PB works for me...no mid-morning snack for this girl. I don't do bread products in the a.m. and I can't stomach veggies that early.

"Did you know that peanut butter is a good source of monounsaturated fat? It also contains resveratrol which is the same phytochemical that makes red wine beneficial as a protection against heart disease and cancer. Peanut butter also contains folate, which helps you to metabolize homocysteine, a byproduct of protein metabolism that otherwise can harm the cardiovascular system."

Excerpt from South Beach Diet 2003, pgs 49, 50 (Hardback)

Dr. Agatston does suggest you use natural peanut butter if possible. He also states this should be w/skim milk and should be used as a special treat only.


I guess I have a special treat every day emoticon
I never said I was perfect. I was just answering the question.

Sorry...

ahem...2 tbsp of peanut butter is NOT a meal girlfriend! A snack..a emergency...but a meal???? I hope to heck you are eating a mid morning snack that has some substance to it.

If I remember correctly, one serving V8 is equal to 1/2 cup serving of veggies. Doesn't matter to me. The V8 makes my doctor-ordered supplements go down easier, since they're all the size of horse pills!!!!

I have an omelet pretty much every morning. It is how I get a good portion of my veggies in before noon..lol.

That also sounds really good. Had asparagus last night. This time of year, there are so many vegetables available. Think the omelets are wonderful cause you can add everything to them. Plus, can change it up so as not to get bored.

I normally eat HUGE breakfasts:

1/2 cup of egg whites, 2 cups of asparagus stir fry veggies, 1/2 cup of diced red pepper, one morningstar sausage patty "diced up and added to the veggies. I cooked the veggies in 2 tsp of olive oil, added the egg whites and then added 1 ounce of mozarella cheese. Made it omelette style and topped with 2 tbsp of ff sour cream. 354 calories total of yumminess that holds me!

That sounds really good. I have protein powder and soy milk. Thinking about a vegetable. I like your V-8 idea. Need to either juice or get some on hand. Like hearing about what others eat.

This morning, I had a smoothie with FF/SF plain yogurt and skim milk. Protein powder, ground flax seed, and peanut butter finished it off. And breakfast wouldn't be complete without my low-sodium V8 juice.

This was a bit of a calorie load, but I knew I wouldn't be able to eat again for quite awhile and I knew this would stay with me and keep me sane until I got home.
