loved it, but i made a crust with almond flour, didn't realize it had carbs, i tripled it for the whole pie, 3 cups almond flour and 3 eggs whites did i cross over???, i didn't eat a ton but how does that change recipe???
Can't answer your question sorry, but wanted to just add my family loves this one also! And with a family of 9 (6 of which are boys) it's nice to make a meal and not have to triple it. Add a salad and they are good to go!
No, it didn't crossover. But the recipe is already a very heavy S, a super cal meal. The addition of the almond flour, ups the cals even more. Growing boys and men could handle the cal load more frequently. If it stalls you, eat a smaller amount or have it more rarely.
My family loved this recipe as well and we even had a little left over for my husbands lunch the next day. He has requested it again but I told him he is gonna have to wait a bit as it is too rich for me too eat frequently
We had this for the first time tonight, for dh and children I served it with baked potatoes, plus we all had cucumbers from the garden. Everyone loved it, I just hope they forget about the one piece left over lol
My whole fam loves this too! We have a family of 7, and SOMEtimes there is one leftover piece, but we make it with only 2lbs of beef. So so yummy. we add veggies and salad too, and no one even looks for carbs...yay for fat!
Made this tonight for my family of 3 and I cut in half only using 1 lb ground beef and I also used half & half instead of heavy cream ( waiting on my book to arrive) - I'm not sure if that will make a huge difference in the taste- but it was really good! We had a side salad and it was just right. Can't wait to try other recipes when my book arrives and get a grasp on the plan!
Does anybody else get an upset stomach after eating it? Every. single. time. I eat it I get acid indigestion and sick to my stomach. It doesn't affect my husband like that though, he eats half of the dish lol. I half the recipe because there is only three of us including out 18 month old.
steffanie3: as well as eating on plan options. A good exampt is a mini snickers might be able to be squeezed in somehow with numbers, but isn't a nourishing on plan meal option

daisymae27: Hi! I just finished the book, and it all makes so much sense! I just have one question. What amount of healthy fat ( per Smeal or per day) is recommended if you're wanting to lose weight?
Feb 8, 2015 10:51:12 GMT -5
steffanie3: daisymae27 Welcome There isn't a set number, in an S meal you are to eat until satisfied, not stuffed but satisfied. You can have up to a 1/3 of a batch of Skinny Chocolate a day is the only fat guideline I can think of off the top of my head.

steffanie3: You do want to be respectful of things like heavy cream with lots of calories and not as "pure" of fat as coconut oil Does that help?
Feb 9, 2015 22:10:45 GMT -5
daisymae27: Yes, that does help. I have been putting coconut oil with a little THM sweetener in my coffee and then blending it in the blender. It's really good! I guess After years of diets that require me to count fats, I'm afraid I might overdo it.

dynamo: So, I remember reading somewhere that 2 light rye wasa crackers can be used in a FP, but the nutritional info says that 2 crackers is 11 net carbs.. isn't the limit 10 net carbs for FP? Does anyone have an explanation for this? TIA! : )
Feb 11, 2015 17:49:18 GMT -5
steffanie3: Yes two light rye Wasa for FP, one in S, or four in E. Rye is very gentle on blood sugar and they are super low cal

htebe: is there a substitute for oolong tea? seems I have everything but

stacylynn: trimhealthygma4him - what is overwhelming to you? Maybe we can help you!

stacylynn: htebe - I have subbed green tea for oolong before. They aren't a perfect switch, but I believe they are close enough to sub for one another. What do the rest of you think?
Feb 16, 2015 10:30:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: I agree Green tea can be subbed in Earth Milk so I took that as they were similar. I personally like all kinds of teas and drink both at different times. Many types have their own benefits, I would use what you have for now

kari1052: does anyone have a package of not naughty rice or pasta they wouldn't mind selling. I want to try it before investing in a case of it in case I hate it.

steffanie3: kari1052 it wouldn't be the same brand, but Swanson's Vitamins sells individual bags of konjac noodles, Miracle noodle brand. Although I prefer THM's (and THM's are cheaper even with shipping) you could get the basic konjac noodle idea that way

perla: Do any of you still eat any of the RAW recipes from Serene's previous cookbook? I would like to be able to implement the "Sun-dried tomatoe spinach pasta" and the "Classic Green Bean Salad" recipes. Are those still within the THM boundries?
