Same goes for me!  I haven't figured out how to add friends yet but if you have, add me!

I used SparkPeople last year but am finding that I really like myfitnesspal.com much better.  It's easier to use. 
I will be trying a recipe from my Eat This Not That 2011 book tonight.  If it's good I will be posting it on my blog and will let you all know!

Lindy, is your MFP name the same as your Craftster name?  I searched and found a lindyv321 but thought I'd just double check it was you before adding you as a friend!

I love MFP also, I used to use Weight Loss Resources which was very helpful but it wasn't free so I had to eventually drop it so I was really pleased to find MyFitnessPal Cheesy

Okay, i bought quinoa last night. I tried it once a couple years ago, but i didn't know what to do with it... and did not care for it. So, who has some really good and pretty simple recipes i should try?

Yummy yum, a healthy and fresh Sweet Potato, Chicken, Coconut and Chilli soup for tea, with some freshly baked granary bread  Cheesy



And plenty leftover for my lunch the next 2 days!

EDIT: Forgot to add that my goal is going well so far, filled in my food diary the last 2 days Smiley

That looks delish!

My weekly goal is going pretty well so far...need to remember to fill up my water pitcher/filter more often! Also want to get some fruit to cut up and freeze and eat in the mornings.

Instead of going to the fast food cafeteria for lunch at the office today, I made a salad with arugula, cherry tomatoes from my own plants, salami chunks from my croissant sandwich last night, and balsamic vinegar/olive oil! It was so delicious! I had a babybel gouda cheese too and some tapioca pudding for dessert. So much better than the normal grilled cheese and french fries lunch.

yum yum yum yum yum healthy food

Epic fail today and one tiny success.

I was overwhelmed today with shakiness so my work buddy gave me a packet of pop tarts. oops. and a hoho. double oops. I don't know if was accidental caffeine overdose or just a blood sugar thing.

My one virtue today was that I did make the mason jar salads and took one to work with reduced fat dressing. I ate 90% of it with my main course, pasta with red sauce and TVP crumbles. It was fab!

That soup looks so yummy!

Banaleg--Quinoa is so small that it is easy to have it just be a soppy mess.  My mom had a recipe that I made her when she was not feeling well.  It was a pudding type of deal...like rice pudding.  It used soy milk, some sweetener, an egg I think, and spices.  It was a stove top pudding as well.  But I don't remember anything more then that about it all.  It might be good in some kind of salad, since it seems to need something with more substance with it.  I also seem to remember that it cooks much faster then the instructions I had...for just boiling a pot of it I mean.  I also think I saw a chef on TV toast it a bit in a pan before adding the liquid.  I think he used broth too and not water.  He did it like a risotto...just a bit of the liquid at a time.  It was easier to keep it from over cooking that way.
Hope that helps Grin

I have eaten rather large breakfasts Mon. and Tue.  Monday I made 4 strips of bacon, poached egg over a bed of spinache.  If I had to eat it was going to be yummy heheh.  Today it was sausage and egg and 1/2 an English muffin.   I will work on healthyer options in the next few weeks.  I did feel a bit more energetic during the day today Grin

quinoa is great, I love making risotto for it. The only annoying that is that you're supposed to pre-soak it for hours, however I ususally can't be bothered and it turns out okay anyway  Cheesy

I've been doing really good this week. Staying within my calorie range and for the most part hitting my fiber goal (fell short on Monday though).

I weigh myself every Saturday but had a quick peak this morning and I'm 5lbs down from what I was on Saturday! I am very excited but trying not to count my chickens just yet beceause I'm donating blood on Thurs so I won't be able to work out on Thurs or Fri so that might have an impact. Still, I'm feeling really awesome at the moment!  Grin

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.

I've been doing pretty well getting vegetables in. Of course, there's always room for more. My family had spaghetti tonight, so I made myself some whole wheat pasta and threw some veggies in.

And I made my first green monster! Needs some work, but getting more spinach into my diet is a good thing!

Thanks for the quinoa tips. Excited to try it out tomorrow.
