My second day on the no-carbs diet: lunch meat with mayonaisse and half a pepper, dinner some pork grinds(is that how you call them?). I CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE :'( I can't believe some people can go like this forever, but I can't ! I love my bread, and my french fries, and my soy milk and my ICE CREAM:'( I'm the kind of person that if he/she doesn't have anything sweet formore than 2 days, he/she dies! And i'm being serious, I feel soooo weak today, I slept all day long, I need my stuff!
So screw it, tomorrow I'll bid adieu to this no-carb diet.
Plus I'm PMS-ing so my appetite always increases:-D
O BTW, I was tlaking with my cousin today, she says that when you are on your period, you can eat ANYTHING you want and you'll never gain weight. IS THAT TRUE????
Sep 27 2006, 08:46 AM
Mirabella, my university has a by-donation/free vegan lunch every day. There are usually 4 big pots lined up: soup, grain, stew, and salad, and sometimes there's bread. They're amazing! They live off of the $ donations, food donations from stores, volunteer initiative, and a small part of our student fees.
Yesterday, lunch was carrot-ginger soup, corn on the cob, a potato & black bean stew, and couscous salad with lettuce and radishes and homemade vinaigrette.
Sep 27 2006, 10:53 AM
Monday I had a craving for organ meats. I had chicken livers sauteed with red wine, green onions, crimini mushrooms, & a bit of bacon fat.
Late last night I made a burrito out of it with boursin cheese.
I am weird. Must be running low on something nutritionally.
Sep 27 2006, 04:45 PM
Aural, I can't believe I love someone so creepy so much. Organ meat burritos?!
Dani, I don't think your period has much to do with your metabolism so no, that isn't true.
Today I 'et:
breakfast-Multigrain English muffin with margerine and jelly, canteloupe
lunch-rigatoni ala sicila---tomato sauce, sauteed eggplant and fresh mozzarella
and dinner, oh my fucking GOD: http://www.tanoreen.com/
Je-mr. and I shared browned cauliflower salad with pommegranite syrup and tahini, a mezze plate with pickles, olives and pickled beets served with a medley of different pitas, a Mediterranean pizza with carmelized onion, shredded chicken, pine nuts, roasted slivered almonds and cabbage salad and the Vegetarian Combo, which was sauteed dandilion greens, cracked wheat and chickpeas in tomato sauce, lentil pilaf (smothered in carmelized onions---my god, my god) these amazingly lemony vegetarian grape leaves , Israeli salad and finally, the most sweet, buttery, delectable baklava EVER washed down with hot mint tea.
It was so fucking good. Our Dr. is in Bay Ridge, hence the trip to the ends of the earth, but now that we're aware of it's magic we're going to travel there again and again. And again.
Sep 27 2006, 05:18 PM
AP, organ meats are supposedly or rather suprisingly good for ya. That being said, I just can't bring myself to. I.just.can't.
Dani, Jem is right. If you pig out during your period your body will metabolize it just the same.
Jem, I want your dinner. NOW. That sounds so good!
I'm sooo hungry and afraid that my fab dinner plans may have fallen through due to time constraints. And I barely ate today in anticipation of all the delectables I thought I was going to gorging on.
Breakfast: two cups of coffee with vanilla chai creamer, a plum
Lunch: raspberry white tea, a nectarine & some walnuts
Dinner was supposed to be at this great vegetarian asian fusion cafe with some friends before a concert, but they forgot the tickets and now we are running late. So looks like no green curry veggie chix served in young coconut, brown fried rice, spicy basil garlic & chili faux shrimp, crispy tangerine veggie chix, pad kee mao w/ faux steak, vegan sushi, fresh tofu spring rolls, and super yummy vegan banana cake for me! Instead is going to be a PB&J sammich. Harumph!
Sep 27 2006, 05:58 PM
yuefie, tell me more about this vanilla chai creamer? i need to wean myself off of the coffeemate crap.
and what's in a chocolate cake shot? godiva, i'm guessing, but what else?
- nutrition for women (i know, i know) vanilla cinnamon instant oatmeal w/chopped walnuts & craisins.
- two cups of coffee w/vanilla coffeemate crap and milk
- an egg-white omelette w/mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers & onions
- celery & carrot sticks
- 1 or 2 oz of those veggie thingies that are like potato sticks
- quesadilla with shredded cheddar & monteray jack, onions, green peppers & black olives
i haven't had this healthy a food day in a long time.
my body's going to go into toxic shock. hee.
Sep 27 2006, 06:14 PM
Maybe the reason you are having trouble with the low carb diet is IT'S NOT NATURAL. Your body needs complex carbs.
Yufie, if it makes you feel better, organ meats tend to have higher concentrations of toxins.
I just had an apple. Finally--I can get local apples that taste like something again. Yum.
Sep 27 2006, 06:43 PM
I really really really really hereby resolve not to let busyness/stress keep me from eating breakfast. And lunch. Seriously. Today was just silly:
"breakfast": coffee, more coffee, two bites of mr. frog's blueberry muffin
"lunch": a handful of teriyaki turkey jerky, big mug of sweet thai delight rooibos tea
but supper! we made: garlic-basil whole-wheat couscous, pan-grilled chicken with orange-basil salad dressing, and steamed (ok, thawed frozen) asparagus tips. yay real food! fresh local plums and apples for dessert... plus a choco-chip cookie for me.
mr. frog also made some homemade roasted-pepper-tomato salsa that I'm dyin' to try after it marinates itself overnight. the whole house smells like roasted peppers right now.
Sep 28 2006, 01:38 AM
Okay, so my friend hauled ass and made such good time he was able to call in a to-go order. Yay! So we got to eat the veggie sushi before the show. I am surprised out how good those rolls are, as they are pretty non traditional. My friends even had some made with brown rice for me, 'cause I like the brown stuff better and it's hard to find places that make sushi with it. Mandi my dear, I hate to even admit this but the Vanilla Chai creamer is a crappy Coffeemate flavor I know that stuff is bad, bad, bad and I justified using it because I so rarely drink coffee. But bleh, I felt kinda crummy all day from it.

mouse - everyone i've met who's had yuengling and is not from here or has moved away reacts the same way! cold, cold bottles of yuengling, the yuengling porter too....can't beat it. not a big yuengling black and tan fan, tho. too bad it's not carried nationally - i think it would be easy to get people hooked
i also love me some straub!
Sep 28 2006, 11:08 AM
yeah, i think it's a combination of a: hella delicious cheap beer; b: pride in one's hometown, and c: forbidden fruit--i think the fact that they don't ship very far makes it precisely that much more desirable.
Sep 28 2006, 03:44 PM
wow jem and yuefie's dinners sound delectable! mmmm.
what anoushh said about carbs: they are called an essential food group cos you know they're ESSENTIAL.
mouse, I have bad news for you: walkers sensations no longer make slow roasted lamb and mint flavoured crisps . They do, however, now do slow roasted lamb and moroccon spice flavour.
my diet has been appalling this week but I've been ill. today I went shopping though and bought lots of goodies so I'll post soon!
Sep 28 2006, 04:17 PM
walkers sensations no longer make slow roasted lamb and mint flavoured crisps
*falls to knees, muddying prom dress*
ANYWAY i had a burrito with rice and beans and a salad. and last night was some delicious sag paneer, basmati rice, samosa and papadom. oh india sweets and spices, how i love you and your $4.99 value meals of deliciousness..
(one of the reasons i love my neighborhood is the abundance of amazing cheap, non-fast food. there is also a tiny japanese place where you can get a salad, miso soup, sushi roll and tempura for 5 bucks. hmmmm....maybe that will be dinner!)
Sep 28 2006, 05:11 PM

MANDO: There is nothing truly chocolate-y in a chocolate cake shot. Frangelico & Stoli Vanil. Sugar the rim of the shot glass, combine the hooch, shoot, & bite into a lemon wedge after. It's uncanny how much it tastes just like a rich chocolate cake.
I eat organ meats once in a blue moon. And I stand by my burrito.
Sep 29 2006, 01:25 AM
multigrain spaghettini, alfredo sauce with sauted leeks, mushrooms, celery, zucchini and prawns.

Sep 29 2006, 11:43 AM
AP--I wasn't saying not to eat them, just saying not to feel bad about not eating organ meat, either. I mean, Ben and Jerry's is bad for you if you eat it a lot (and milkfat has a higher concentration of toxins than skim, so there you go) but I do from time to time.
Anyway, I'm a vegetarian (for 26 years!), so I'm not the best person to get advice from about meat stuff.
I need to eat more. I never thought that sentence would come out of my mouth.
Sep 29 2006, 11:56 AM
