I do need to get in some beans. I ate them in phase 1 but not much since I have been in P2. I cook them in canned chicken broth which I do have on hand.
I didn't have any tomato sauce so used what I had. I will be going shopping Friday so will get some then as I do like the meatloaf better than frying with very little oil.. The low fat is so dry but was nice cooked like I did in a loaf.
I have plenty of dry milk here but am getting low on yogurt & cottage cheese. I'll get more Friday when I shop. Is there a way to make yogurt using powdered milk? I know I can make buttermilk if I had some to use as a starter. I'll have to check the internet for yogurt.
I have dumbbells in 3 & 5 lb weights. I just need to use them. My ankle weights are 1 - 5 lbs each. I have neuropathy caused by a kidney infection I had in 2004. That is what left my muscles weaker. I am not diabetic.
I will cut down the sweet potato to Sunday & Wednesday... something to look forward to
Along with losing I am hoping my triglisterides are going down.. I took myself off Tricor. I didn't like how I was feeling with them. They will be checked the 24th. It would be nice to be down about 15 lbs when I go back to the Dr.
I take Silver Centram vitamins.. is there any other I should get Friday. I also take vitamin E as it sure helps my leg cramps. I also take a calcium suppliment too. I am using Viactiv but need to get a pill I guess as this has 20 calories & corn syrup in it. I started using this when I choked BAD on a large pill.. It took me over an hour to get it to go down. I couldn't even swollow salava. I was about ready to go to the ER when it went down. Sure scared me & I was alone.
One more thing..
Can I have chicken gravy from the mix ONCE IN AWHILE? The ingredience are as follows..
Enriched wheat flour
modified wheat starch
The most of the rest is just additives
25 calories 0 fat 4 g carbs 1 g sugar
I know I can't have it often but would it be OK once in a great while? I miss gravy. Could I make some gravy with wheat flour & chicken broth?
If so the flour will be added to my list.
I sure appreciate this forum & all the help it has been to me. None of my friends understand South Beach & could care less. It is nice to know people who do care
Now off to walk a little,
Starting over again.
