But we did it and we have both lost weight. I have a specific goal and pray that I reach it (sorry, not sharing that part!)! And, of course, we get easily bored with the same old thing to eat....so my research into recipes is beginning and I found some awesome ones on pinterest and the Atkins site. And in this age of electronic everything ~ I have decided to print out the recipes I find and make us a Low Carb cookbook ~ its so much easier to do it this way for me, then I can see the page (my kindle likes to "go to sleep" from being on 1 page for too long), keep referring back to it, and make notes of any changes we make.
We have made Impossible Cheeseburger Pie (using THM baking blend in place of the flour "THM-Trim Healthy Mama"), and the Shepherds Pie using mashed cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes. They were both delicious! The recipes are readily available online. I also fried chicken strips the other night, using the THM blend for the breading ~ yum!
Also, I found on Amazon some Bobs Red Mill Low Carb baking mix and have ordered it to use. We renewed our Amazon Prime Unlimited subscription and I've downloaded 4 or 5 books to read for this lifestyle.
We will be taking our little tote with approved goodies on our vacation and refreezing our freezer packs everynight to keep everything cool. I know there will be some "cheats", and I know that they will be....like Mickey ice cream sandwich, a Gaston's cinnamon roll, and a chocolate mousse from France. But I am hoping to avoid the sandwiches, buns, etc. And exercise will be taken care of by the huge amount of walking.
Thankful for ~
a lot of new recipes
