Or you can post my breakfast from the other day:now you must post your meals regularly, so she won't think her passive aggressive comments made her win
bacon and sausage scrambled with 3 eggs. Shredded kerrygold cheese. Coffee with heavy cream.
Breakfast of champions, LOL
Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!
Breakfast was Bacon, and eggs, with cheese, and I put a dab (2 tbls) of Kerrygold on them, then had Buttered Coffee (bulletproof) for going to work (butter, MCT oil, plain gelatin powder, and collagen powder)...
Funny CW: well, not that funny, but a co-worker has just been diagnosed with Gluten Intolerance. She is convinced her life is over. I'm standing there, telling her "You can always come eat at my place"
I stumble upon this list of healthy recipes substitutions on Pinterest, some may be good ideas but these?
Black beans for flour--
Swapping out flour for a can of back beans (drained and rinsed, of course) in brownies is a great way to cut out the gluten and fit in an extra dose of protein, Plus, they taste great. When baking, swap out 1 cup flour for 1 cup black bean puree (about a 15oz can).
Marshmallow Fluff for frosting--
Replacing the fat and sugar in frosting with marshmallow achieves the perfect consistency with many fewer calories. While two tablespoons of marshmallow has just 40 calories and 6 grams of sugar (and no fat!), the same amount of conventional frosting can pack up to 100 calories, 14 grams of sugar, and 5 grams of fat. Need we go on?
Two egg whites for one whole egg --
One egg yolk holds more than half the recommended daily cholesterol for the average adult. Trading out the yolk for a second white will cut out the cholesterol while doubling the protein. If making a dish that requires more eggs, keep one to two yolks for their rich vitamins A, E, D, and K content, but consider swapping out the rest.
White-meat, skinless poultry for dark-meat poultry --
The biggest chicken debate to date: white meat vs. dark meat. And the white meat has it beat — lower in calories and fat, higher in protein and iron.
Ground Turkey for ground beef --
Ground turkey (or chicken) is a great substitute for ground beef to cut down on saturated fat and calories. Reminder: Because of the lower fat content, ground poultry often ends up drier than beef, but a few tablespoons of chicken stock can solve the problem in a snap!
And...black beans instead of flour?? Did I read that correctly?
Wait, white meat chicken is higher in iron than dark?? I always heard the opposite.
Somebody made that black bean brownie concoction and brought it to a running group 'healthy' breakfast. If you want chocolates stuff without flour why not make a flour less chocolate cake or mousse?
In the store on the box of Honeycomb cereal, it stated "Served Best With Skim Milk". What???

Mom, Stepdad and I are eating dinner. Dinner's Turkish white bread and ground beef with salad and BBQ-sauce for the beef.
Stepdad: I read about this bread-diet. I was thinking about trying it. Can't put any butter (*Margarine*) on it though...
Me (a bit horrified) thinking: Ooookay...
Mom: But just bread is unhealthy! And not tasty at all.
Me thinking: Good one Mom!
Stepdad: Well, I'd use Turkish bread, because that's tasty on its own and it isn't dry at all.
Mom: But it doesn't have any fibers!
Me: How do you know that?
Mom: Well, fibers are the pits and the seeds on it!
Me thinking: WTH?!
Me: Ehm... no... Pits and seeds are just pits and seeds. Fibers are inside the bread, and as far as I know, not visible.
Mom (to Stepdad, last sentence a bit threatingly): But it's unhealthy. You're not seriously thinking about doing that, right?!
Stepdad: I said I was thinking about it!
Mom (a bit belittlingly (sp?)): Oh, good. I thought you actually wanted to try it.
Stepdad: *mumbles something under his breath and looks a bit miserable*
I mean, I don't think the bread diet is very healthy. But my Mom just... she just doesn't consider it. Automatically, things are written off as unhealthy and just not-done. While Stepdad just wanted to try it for two weeks. I mean, even if it's unhealthy, I don't think it'd kill you! (well, maybe if you're very allergic or intolerant to gluten or grains?)
But Mom's the boss. :P And trying out CW diets all the time. (So that's why I never mention Primal to her. I think Stepdad would at least hear me out and read a webpage about it, but Mom would just wipe everything I say off the table like I've gone mad.)
