Yes, I love Mexican. Did you read the section on eating out in our book? We give suggestions there. Fajitas are a great choice, you'll be surprised that you likely won't miss the rice, beans or toritallas. The wonderful spicy meat and veggies with cheese, salsa and sour cream is very satisfying. A Taco salad is a great choice too, just don't eat that shell. You can ask for cucumber slices to dunk into your cheese dip or salsa if you feel left out not eating the chips.

daisymae27: i made the mayonnaise in the book, and I really don't like the taste. It leaves such a bitter aftertaste. Any suggestions on how to tweak it to taste better? If not, is there any acceptable ready- made brand?

steffanie3: daisymae27, it is probably the olive oil I like it i something strong as is like a curry chicken salad, but for everyday MCT for the olive or part of it appeals more, avocado or a light olive oil too

steffanie3: Green pea flour could be used in an E setting, if you have a specific recipe asking in above forum we could give it a look payeville

steffanie3: crazyabt6, did you use the homemade flour called for in making in the first step?

steffanie3: gram42can, nope Cheerios would be a no go on THM

steffanie3: perla, I don't have those, but if you post ingredients in a post above we could take a look or other mamas might spot it that do have it. The chatbox questions are easy to miss because they can scroll by without mamas seeing them

solagratia: I'm new and not sure how this this works...new to THM too and have a question. Appreciate any help I can get.

solagratia: I've been doing THM about 2 weeks and I'm starting to loose a bit of wieght but my breath has become strange. I can't smell it but my husband says it's a bit metallic and quite strongly ammonia-like in its smell.

solagratia: We're concerned since I am nursing our 11 month old. I've had this happen before when I've tried to loose weight while still nursing. But years ago (before my childbearing and nursing days) I lost weight when needed without this side affect.
Mar 16, 2015 2:22:19 GMT -5
solagratia: My mild supply seems fine, but we are concerned about how this could affect the baby or if something is wrong with me. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks

steffanie3: solagratia, it sounds like you are in ketosis are you mixing up your fuels well? If you would like you can post a few days menus in a thread above and the ladies are great about helping make suggestions

Dutchi: Is there a limit for how much almond milk you can use in a meal...any category? For example...can I use 1.5 cups of almond milk in a smoothie with whey and berries and still have it be a FP? I find the ice waters down the flavour too much for my liking.

Dutchi: I bought some whey powder at the bulk food store. Most recipes call for 1 scoop. Can you tell what 1 scoop would equal...1 tablespoon...2 tablespoons?
Mar 17, 2015 13:14:00 GMT -5
steffanie3: Dutchi a cup and a half can work specifically in that example, typically it is good to stick to a serving is a good idea
Mar 22, 2015 15:50:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: You might have to check with the store to be sure, a typical scoop is 1/4 to a 1/3 but they can vary a bit. For protein you do want a whey protein isolate, cross-microfiltered preferred.
