I'm not thrilled, but I've had to cut all sugar, flour, pasta, rice, potatoes, and most fruit from my diet. I can't even seem to have "artificial" sweeteners. I'm trying to be positive, and look at it as a "challenge" to find alternatives...but really...I'm going to sulk a little and complain on how tough it is.
My normal preferred breakfast is steel cut oats. I love oats, cooked in milk with fresh fruit added. No need for added sweeteners of any kind. Right now, I'm eating 2 eggs a morning, usually mixed with veggies, and a side of cottage cheese. I haven't completely given up creamer in coffee, but it's one of those measure carefully types of situations.
|Rinsed well, these are pretty decent.|
Dinners are the easiest though. It's easy to pick a protein, do something delicious to it, and serve it up with a ton of vegetables. We've already done a good amount of grilling in this warm weather, and I can think of a good number of slow-cooker recipes. It's not easy though- some days you really just want a piece of bread, or a plate of pasta. Or a bowl of oatmeal. And we won't even get into desserts and snacks. But as I adjust and learn new recipes, I'll try to share them.
At least I haven't had to cut dairy- home made yogurt with some chia seeds, a few blueberries and a small handful of granola have been the only thing that keeps me going in the afternoon. I truly mean that too.
