So today, I recreated an old favorite of mine from back in my gluten-eating days - salad sandwiches. Sounds crazy, right? But my Italian dad always did this, so I did too!
So make a small salad with your favorite greens, but for some reason, I love a tiny bit of torn iceberg mixed into my field greens and romaine mix for this application. Add a bit of diced tomato and cucumber. Also, add a small amount of thinly slivered sweet onion. The onion taste is really important to this, but a tiny amount is all that is needed. To this salad, add a good sprinkle of sea salt and a few cracks of pepper. Use a microplane or small grater to grate a very small amount of parmesan into the salad. Toss with a very small amount of your favorite vinnaigrette. If you make your own, you can keep it E. Allow salad to sit and wilt, about 10 minutes. Toss well a few times.
While salad is wilting, mix up a batch of trim healthy pan breads, but to batter remove about 1-2 tbs of oats and replace with golden flax meal. Add 2 tbs of nutritional yeast, a few pinches of those minced dried onions or onion powder, and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Add a few pinches sea salt, too. Cook these as recipe directs.
Take 2-3 panbreads, and holding each like a taco, fill with salad, and then chomp away. It's a mess, and you can't eat it politely. It's so delicious, though. Don't eat it without a napkin and maybe eat it all by yourself - I always look like a hog eating salad sandwiches. It is quite filling. I ate it today with a simple chicken broth anything soup. Very nice.
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.

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

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?

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

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.

nakona62: Is it ok to have an S dessert right after an S meal, or when do you have your desserts?

stacylynn: linmom - I am sorry that this is so late, but for next time, try dipping your meat in mayo and "bread" it with nutritional yeast and spices. YUMMY! Chicken is especially taste-y prepared this way.

stacylynn: nakona - Sure! : I find if I eat my dessert directly after a meal, I don't want to graze. It works for me!

stacylynn: katiehatty - I have read various tweaks regarding the pudding. What is it that bothers you about the pudding?
