    Another great night of sleep! I wonder when it will become something I don't marvel at; long years of insomnia have made this sleep precious.

    Didn't get around to making ice cream yesterday since DH wanted to go out for dinner at local steakhouse to celebrate a special event in his life, so steak tartare, and mushrooms, and I had a bite of his chocolate gelatto.

    Today's plan:
    B-hamburger patty with 1oz cheddar, greek yogurt with 1T walnuts & 1T gold flax seed (a mistake, they stick in teeth)
    L- salad w/tuna
    D-chicken, lettuce wedge w/blue cheese and bacon (I used to hate iceberg lettuce until I found organic iceberg, which is very nice.)

    From Mastering Leptin: Leptin tells thyroid hormones, adrenal hormones, pancreatic hormones, and sex hormones how to perform. Leptin can function without any help from these other hormones, but these other hormones cannot function properly without leptin. (Kindle Locations 314-315).

    I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

      @wyldechild, fairyrae: great ideas! I am a notorious (to my kids) experimenter. They still won't let me forget a broccoli milkshake I made;clearly not a success.

              Glad to share! I'm feeling lazy after a doctor's appoint; always do, don't know why; must be the stress of going and seeing so many really sick people.

              Food today:
              B-Protein shake, two boiled eggs, 1oz cheddar on GG fiber cracker
              L-1/2 sweet potato, burger patty
              D-Chicken patty on spinach or lettuce with salad fixings.

                Blanche your brocolli in boiling water until fork tender then shock it in ice cold water. While the brocolli is cooling off, take you fat of choice, I used to use olive oil but used butter this time, melted it in a pan then added minced garlic. Cook for one minute then add your drained brocolli to the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Turn off heat, add S&P to taste then squeeze the juice of one lemon over the top. Serve immediately.

                      I put a list of my highlighted notes from ML on Brahniman's Definitive Leptin thread, but I like seeing the quotes other people find in ML, too. So keep 'em coming Sugarbaby. I always need lots of rereading to absorb material lke this. It's great so many have gotten on the leptin wagon.

                              I added this to the recipe forum, but since we are sharing menus here, recipes seem good too:

                                Pleeeeease, does anyone have a few different takes on how to prepare tuna other than the old school mayo, mustard, pickles kind I used to love in school lunches? Tuna has been the quickest go-to in the mornings lately as I've been out of town a lot, but I prepare a bunch in advance and I'd LOVE different ways to "enjoy" it.

                                GREAT THREAD!
