Re: Lunch and breakfast ideas....

I like making tofu and veggie spring rolls for lunch. The most calorific thing about them is the spicy almond butter dipping sauce. But you need that for the fat content and protein so it's ok The recipe calls for frying the tofu to make it crispy but I prefer it raw. So basically you chop up fresh mint,fresh cilantro(unless you hate it),bell pepper,carrots, and maifun rice noodles along with sliced extra firm tofu. Then you put a little of each ingredient into a rice paper wrap that has been softened. Roll like a little burrito. Dip and munch down.
The dip is a combination of almond butter, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, lime juice,brown sugar, and a little bit of water to thin it all out. I can link the recipe if anyone wants it but I just create it to taste normally without measurements.
SO GOOD. It's my favorite thing to have in the summer.

Winter lunches are all about homemade veggie soup,chili, beef stews,and other warm stuff.

Wheat bread is amazing though. I'd still eat a few slices a week if they would sell it in smaller quantities. I don't even bother buying bread anymore because it goes to waste.

We always end up putting our bread in the frig because otherwise, we'd be throwing it out all the time. It lasts quite a while then. You can just pop it in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften it up or of course, toast/grill it!

I've always heard putting it in the fridge works but never tried it bc of some article I read that stated otherwise lol I guess I'll be trying it now bc I sure do love some wheat bread toast w butter and strawberry jam!

Re: Lunch and breakfast ideas....

Egg white omelettes are good, with veggies added.

Low carb high protein flat breads for making a 'low carb' pizza version.

And something that is really easy, delicious and satisfying, are protein shakes mixed with spinach/kale and a little fruit. Can serve as a meal replacement, and I'd recommend buying a high quality protein powder.

Good luck with your goals!

Re: Lunch and breakfast ideas....

What's the consensus now about how many eggs we can have each week?

Why only the whites?? It's a myth that egg yolks are bad for us.

Unlimited. Eggs aren't bad for you! Eating eggs from free range outdoor chickens is best. They should be eating bugs, plants, kitchen scraps etc. and just be supplemented with feed. The darker the yolk the better for you they are. Shell color is irrelevant - has to do with the breed more than anything. I also prefer eggs from a flock with no rooster - just because I don't like surprises, ie baby chicks in my omelette by mistake!! Oh, and DO NOT eat eggs from hens fed a 'vegetarian diet'. Many vegetarians don't even EAT eggs, and hens are omnivores, not vegetarians. Not only do these eggs lack nutrients, but they are guaranteed to be an industrial product.

Thanks for your reply. There isn't any concern about high cholesterol from eggs anymore?

I absolutely love eggs and could go an entire day eating nothing but eggs. I'm still leery of eating unlimited eggs though. I hope I find enough recent studies to show that my concern is unfounded.

Nonsense.

I don't even know what that study you posted means, really. For example, there's no mention of whether the egg-eating doctors smoked or not, or drank, or are diabetic.

Anyway, my doctor told me I have to do this Banting diet because my liver isn't in great shape. He isn't a naturopath or a quack or anything - he's a regular old GP and he eats Banting himself. There's more and more evidence every day that cholesterol, fat, and other things we've thought for decades were bad for us are in fact not, and that sugar is far more insidious and far worse for us than historical studies suggest.

Thanks again. You've influenced me to rethink what I had been told and to try to find more health studies so that I can make a new informed decision. In the meantime, enjoy your eggs tomorrow.

That myth was debunked years ago.
