Mare--I think having a simple group of go to meal ideas will greatly help me!  I am also dealing with inflammation and agree that it is a source of many many health issues...I appreciate any natural way to keep inflammation down!  I am definitely going to try tumeric and pepper...I was wondering if anyone has tried that juice of the cactus flower that I have seen on the informercials...it sounds too good to be true for inflammation...

I don't do dairy either...it creates too much of a mucus thing for me and I know it inflames my arthritis as well...I love cheese but I found that after about a week, I did not miss it much at all...I rarely eat pizza or foods high in cheese anymore...

Thanks CLM...I appreciate the info...I bookmarked that site and found that I just need to take my health a lot more seriously...getting older is starting to suck for me...I love veggies and fruits...I just have bad habits that I need to break...being in pain is a great motivator!

Thanks for helping me through my insanity.

I did find a way through it....I got the my fitnesspal set up and am using it all the time. It's setting my goals....I am eating lots more protein and lots less processed carbs since they use up calories fast. I need the instant feedback on my eating.

I still have bread for buns/sandwiches,etc. But I'm not filling up on as much crappy stuff. I'm finding myself eating tons more eggs and dairy and veg/fruits.

And I do slip occasonally but I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I find myself asking (me): is that ______  really worth X number of calories? Are you going to feel good about eating this later? Most of the time it is helping already!

Thanks for letting me vent ladies! You have helped a lot!

I used to make microwave chips too but I got SOO tired of waiting...I wanted 'em now!  Roll Eyes

I like kale chips, I dust them with dry ranch seasoning pre-bake...they stay crisp when loosely covered and allowed to cool completely.

CraftyLittleMonkey...as regards the pepper and turmeric, any ideas on useful amounts to take a day. I do know that one of the big US medical research centres (can't remember which!) is doing a lot of research on turmeric for its anti cancer properties.

makes your pee yellow though...lol!

I tried making quinoa burgers but replaced the kale with spinach...not a good idea...the patties turned out quite green and unappetizing and a bit bitter...hubby took one bite and said they were terrible...I used lots of ketchup and ate one anyway...since I made twelve, I am going to crumble them up and put them into my soups or stews...I think I will stick to the original recipe.. Cheesy

I am trying to simplify my choices during the week to make my life easier...I am doing the overnight oatmeal for breakfast with different fruits and nuts..that was an easy fix...

Eating healthy is only hard for me if I do not plan... Sad

Sorry I've been sort of quiet.  I've been in a little bit of a cooking rut, lately, making the same things over and over.  On the upside, though, those things are healthier than the things I used to cook!  I think this weekend is going to be the weekend when I actually make those quinoa patties...do you guys think the addition of beans would be good?  The texture of quinoa is not my favorite thing, and I'm thinking some black beans may help with that.  Also, tonight I'm making steel cut oatmeal for the first time!  I'm excited to try it!  I have some brown bananas to put in it, so hopefully DH (who loves bananas) will give it a shot, too.

Are you going to do the overnight oatmeal, Ais? I've been seeing that everywhere! I have to try it.

I really want to try those quinoa patties too. It's been on my to-make list for too long Smiley. I've had black bean patties and they are really yummy. I bet you could try combining the two. Let us know how it goes! 

I've been in a bit of an eating rut lately. I've been dealing with some stress and haven't been paying attention to what I've been putting in my face Smiley. To get a fresh start, I'm doing a cleanse this week. I'm on the third day and feeling pretty good so far. I'm doing it with 2 other friends. It helps SO much to have their support.

I mixed the leftover quinoa with some black beans and it was quite tasty!  I also love mixing it into soups because it gives a comfy porridge feel to the soup...

I am thinking of making a menu planning book like noooo made.....it would be more fun to plan and cook if I could see it...

Stress is a huge factor in my not paying attention to my eating...

Hey--did you guys know that when they x-ray you, the x-rays actually do show your fat? Cheesy

I recently had my hips x-rayed and was appalled that I had a roll hanging over my undies that showed up!  Kind of looks like someone took white chalk and made a few curves over my bones...the doctor also told me that it is sort of what TSA sees on their machines (only theirs are clearer... Sad )...so it was a HUGE motivator to me to cut a few more calories!

Lime, I'm just going to do the steel cut oats on the stove.  To do those over night you have to do it in the crock pot, and I don't feel like dealing with that sucker.

Always, that's a great motivator!  I've actually been doing pretty well with my weight loss.  I've unofficially lost 30 lbs since January (unofficially because my weigh in day is not until Friday).  I've still got a long way to go with it, though!  Eating better and watching calories through a tracker have really made all the difference.  I'm definitely working out more, but it's the food that was getting me.
