Tweaking the Food

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

I decided to go further than I have so far, in concentrating on protein, and not balking at fat that accompanies it. I have been mostly satisfied all day, and easily within my ranges. But after our church class tonight, I wanted a little something. Things that presented themselves were: leftover donuts (my roommate's ), garlic bread, popcorn, hot cocoa. Not wanting to do the carb load, I poked around and came up with a little concoction involving 4 oz of Russian kefir, a couple Tbsps of frozen blueberries (unsweetened), and a sprinkle each of cardamom and cinnamon. Oh my, but it was GOOD!

    THAT'S the way to do it! I'm "tweaking" and experimenting with new foods all the time. There is such a rainbow of taste sensations which are all healthy and mainly low cal too. One soon gets to dread the gray and brown tastes of grease and sugar and salt which comprise so much of the American "diet".

    Yeah I got a lot of great tips from the flylady. Using spices creatively helped me cut down on the salt which is really important to me right now.

    That sounds yummy. I love spices, too. Thanks for recommending FlyLady. I've just heard of her for the first time through you, and she seems to have a lot of great things to say.

    I've been experimenting with spices, and cardamom is one of my new faves.
