Hey mecanix, sounding good. But, may I ask, darlin, is it a London thing to eat mushrooms and garlic for brekkie? Just over here wondering...

oooh garlic mushrooms yummy mecanix

Jeni,there is always hope. If it makes youfeel anybetter I had jam roly poly and custard
as a treat for losing weight. Like the alcoholic having abottle of wine as a treat for not drinking at an event

LDT, I love yoga and have eventually found a local class but it clashes with junior RAL's pre-school so I'll have to wait till August when he starts big school. But there is hope

Apart from the jam roly poly it;s been a good day. Happy healthy eating everyone

RAL, ok, I don't speak British food. What is a jam roly poly? Should I have one?

Now methinks we'll have some garlic mushrooms for dinner tonight! Because I never cooked the beef roast. If only I could convince all the boys to accept that as their dinner, I'd be happy. Alas, I shall have to go char a hunk of meat for them. What an enchanted life I lead...

Looks like party time on this thread today....Rock on Heaters!

Mecanix, I would eat garlic and mushrooms all day long. They would be awesome in an omelette .

My afternoon smoothie was actually very refreshing, and a beautiful color of green. I put pears in it for the first time and it was good. Think I need to leave blueberries out of my green smoothies because the color ends up being a complete turn off. I do not want to drink anything that is black.

I am currently waiting on Cincinnati Chili that H made to put over pasta.....raw ice cream tonight.

Hey RAL.... You could always google free online yoga classes and do it while junior is taking his nap. I'm thinking of getting a stationary bike to do spin classes at home. I use to go to a gym for spin classes, but it became impossible to get a bike.....anyone spin at home?

Jeepers creepers people! I go to work, come home, and have all these posts to read through.

Let me ask you a question...do you all think I am the smartest man on earth for coming up with the idea for this Thread, or the second smartest man? Hehhehe. That was meant to be funny. Get it?!?!??! I gave you only two choices...the smartest, or second smartest. That's what makes it funny!

Ok...No, I would have eaten all of them at once, all of them, or I would have threw them away. Those woulda been the choices before me. You had the restraint to stop at 3. You deserve props for that!

LDT - I have to modify things at the gym all the time due to injuries. It sucks. However, every once in a while, a work out is created where my injuries are not a major factor, and I humbly admit, I sometimes kick azz in those. Those make me feel good.

RAL and Mecanix...I'm not ignoring you! Good to see you here and congrats on your healthy choices.

Joy - I would think a roast in the cooker for seven hours on high would cook it enough. However, the roasts I cook are small. Best bet is to check for a recipe and see what it reads, and perhaps, get a thermometer that can tell the inner temperature of the roast.

Hey everyone! It has been so long since I've posted on here. College is going great! I'm happier than I have ever been. I've been working out every day..

However...I have not been eating clean like I used to. I am really trying to get back to my old eating habits. But it's hard when I go into the dining hall and see pizza, plates of cookies and other desserts, etc. etc. I still have my green smoothie almost every day, and my breakfast is always healthy.

I just need to get some healthy snacks to help control my hunger so I don't go crazy in the dining hall. Normally I stock my mini fridge with fruit/veggies and have a few dry snacks like gluten free pretzels, granola, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions for snacks/easy meals I could try? Let me know!

Hugs
Courtney

I find bananas good for a healthy snack courtneykay , they even come with there own bio-degradable wrapper a tub of berries is always yummy too ..

I find if i go down the salty carb route i only end up craving more , like a trigger food .

I think i might roast some peeled whole onions tonight and try them cold for a savoury snack .. where is kai with the dehydrator ? ( hope the restaraunt is going ok )

Bestwishes, m

Good Morning Heaters.

Up early scratching my feet.....more on that later.....

Yes Ghostly, Master of Heaters, we are most grateful you started this thread. You are wise beyond your years ( and your seafood impairment ). If not for you, we would not all have "met" each other and discovered how fabulous and charming we all really are. So to you dear friend I humbly. ( seriously though ....Thanks! You guys are my peeps).

Now to my feet.... Took the dog out and ended up standing in a mound of FIRE ANTS! In seconds my feet and legs were covered with hundreds of ants. I jumped half way into our pool (with jeans on to wash them off), as they were stinging the hell out me. As I type, I sit with ice packs on my feet, they are so swollen..... No yoga for me this morning.....no anything really, because I look and feel like a platypus when I walk. Any foods you know of that combat ant stings?

Mecanix, last I read on another thread, our friend CaiHong had decided not to open up her restaurant. Don't know if that's current news or not. She had wonderful suggestions here about raw food eating, and I wish she'd pop in again.

Courtney....Welcome back. I, too have problems with grabbing quick, healthy snacks on the go. Seems I have developed a bit of an allergy to SOME raw nuts, so I have to be careful. But if you aren't allergic, raw nuts are great for a snack....so are grapes and bananas ( like Mecanix said). What about almond or peanut butter and sliced apples or pretzel sticks? Since you are a college student, maybe you could google up 'Paleo crockpot recipes'. There are a bunch, and they are always healthy. If you don't have a slow cooker, you can buy one for about $20.00 in almost any store.

I'm long winded this morning ( just don't say it joygirl )....must be the ant poison. I'm off to make a breakfast of pears and honey, with a green smoothie on the side.

Oh, and you are not going to BELIEVE how I tried to talk H into drinking a green smoothie the other day..........

Good morning heaters!

LDT, just like you to stomp around p*ssing off fire ants. I think eating ice cream might help distract you from the pain. Really am sorry about that though, I know how badly even one bite hurts. Did you try benadryl?

So, Ghostly started all of this? I didn't know that. Thanks, Ghostly, you're a genius!

Courtney,Hope you're doing well in school. Stay away from the ramen noodles and hot pockets!!! In the dining hall, just try for balance. If you have cookies, have some vegs or salad first. Pizza, have some fruit as well. You get the idea. You're going to eat some crap, tasty crap, in school. Your breakfast is a great start. And LDT gave good suggestions for snacks. Keep a jar of peanut butter, or almond butter close by with a spoon. And stay hydrated. Sometimes we confuse hunger signals with thirst signals. Try a glass of water or tea when you think you're hungry and see if it's what you really needed. Yogurt is also a good snack, or make your own trail mix.

Wow, I'm long winded this morning.... what?!
LDT, I'm imagining a few things you could have tried on H, but won't say. Did it work? )

Joygirl....no, darlin'...sorry to say my ploy to get H to drink a green smoothie didn't work.....I have a few other ideas up my sleeve though. I'm so diabolical.... It's a wonder why he stays with me.

I'm on my phone in the car just about to go into my wonderful meditation session, but just wanted to comment....fire ants??!!

What the blazes are they?

You sure you're not making this up? Ants are tiny little creatures who have a thing for sugar (and for that they can be forgiven). We don't have those in my part of the world that's for sure.

Ghostly-you're a true genius for starting this thread. Thank you!

Ok...today. Well it was a bit mixed. I ate cheese salad sandwiches for lunch, and then some fruit. But then one of the women at work MADE me eat some of her home made cake, and I had to do a staff disciplinary meeting (my worst thing in the world), and I needed a couple of choc biscuits after. But apart from that, I've been good.

Small steps....

How do you stop people offering you stuff? I mean when I quit drinking, I got rid of it all and stayed away from pubs for months...but I can't not work. And there are biscuits and chocolate everywhere there. Ugh.

Oh, mecanix...my top 3 most hated foods are Brussels sprouts, cabbage and....mushrooms! Yuk.

Right my lovelies, gotta go meditate and get rid of the days stresses. See ya xx

Jeni .... Another google moment awaits you ....Fire Ants , or genus Solenopsis are STINGING ants .... Sometimes they are called red ants ..... But they are easily riled to the point where they often attack small animals and can sometimes kill them . Their venom can cause some people to go into shock . It feels like fire ! Obviously I'm not in shock, but my feet are about twice their size right now These awful creatures are very prevalent down south ....bless their hearts .

Start of a new day for me today. Yesterday i had a smoothie with pineapple, strawberries, flaxseed, kale and red bell pepper and almond milk for breakfast.

For lunch I made a sort of brown rice and brown lentil with vegetables stir fry. I read that lentils are very nutritious so decided to incorporate them into my diet.....I can't say that I like them, in fact I don't like them at all! For that matter I don't particularly like legumes but I'll keep trying other recipes. Anyone else know of some scrumptious legume recipes????

Dinner was vegetables and salmon. Nuts and dates for snacks.

oooh Sounds painful LDT-hope you feel better soon

hope the meditation went well Jeni

dragon-I'm not a fan of lentils either If you eat food you don't like surely you'll get fed up and eat something scrumptiously bad instead?

thanks for starting the thread ghostly

Hope you're ok mecanix and joygirl and all the other heaters

greek yoghurt & berries for b/f
2 oat biscuits with sardines,avcado & cheese for snack
no lunch then a box of tunnocks teacakes

then chicken curry homemade wth chapatis

We live to eat healthily tomorrow instead

Dragon, I do have a healthy lentil recipe. One of my favorites and super easy. Do you have access to Rotel tomatoes and do you like spicy? If so, heres one for you.
Good lord, are you in the UK? You'll have to convert my measurements.

1 pound lentils, rinsed
1 can Rotel tomatoes (diced tomatoes and green chilies)
1 carrot, diced or sliced thinly
1 celery stalk, diced or sliced thinly
1/2 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, finely minced
Combine all that in a pot, bring to boil and cover. Simmer an hour. Season with salt, pepper
Add some stock to make it soup. Or, serve over brown rice as is.
You can add a pound of sliced sausage to the pot if you like it. Voila!

It makes a lot, so you can eat it for days. One of my vegetarian recipes.
