Great thread! Not for me, I am kind of freakishly under weight and trying to gain, perhaps eating meat for the first time in 6 years will help me!

But this will be a great thread to keep track of to help my boyfriend, he is trying to lose weight and has been a little unsuccessful. Probably my fault, as I put olive oil on/in everything, love carbs and sugar - I would insist on candy snacks in bed every night, he has now banned me from eating chocolate when I am with him!

I struggle to find recipes to cook for him though! Last night it was lamb cutlets with a big salad of baby spinach, rocket, feta, cherry tomatoes and pomegranate seeds. But I am almost all out of ideas now though, as almost everything I cook has things he is trying to avoid! I want to help and support him so he can feel good about his own body (and so I can have a sexy sexy boyfriend instead of just a sexy boyfriend!!)

Awesome, CLM! I've never heard of water kefir, only the yogurty stuff. I definitely need to up my probiotic intake. I've tried several supplements, but either noticed no difference or too much of a difference. And never a difference in the source of my probiotic needs - yeast overgrowth!

Do you do any prebiotic supplementation, too?

Hm...I love onions, I should be set! Wink

Too bad I'm not in Canada, I'd be at your door to take some off your hands. If you're willing to send it internationally (or if you even can), let me know!

I had a salad with sweet potatoes, lentils, granola, and goat cheese in it over the weekend. It was surprisingly delicious. I never would have thought to put those ingredients together, but they totally worked.

What's everyone eating these days? Tried any new recipes?

I'm starting a 21 day elimination diet (no soy, gluten, egg, dairy, corn, peanuts, sugar/sweeteners) to see if I can regain some energy. I'm just exhausted all the time lately and don't have energy for anything. Also a lot of these are inflammatory and I've been having a rough time with my RA (some of the fatigue is from that I'm sure, but it's so much worse than normal RA fatigue). I'm trying to set myself up for easy meals with some prep.

Right now I'm cooking brown rice and pinto beans with beef broth, lots of garlic and onion (dehydrated minced and granulated of both), celery salt and coconut oil.

I've got a lot of ground beef cooked up in the fridge from taco night and made some Mmmm Sauce last night. Next up I'm going to roast up a tray of broccoli. A bowl of rice/beans topped with meat and veggies and Mmmm sauce is delicious and doesn't contain any of the off-limit-for-now-ingredients.

Good luck, Mare! I know those diets can be rough but I have a friend with RA and she swears it helps her. I hope it works for you too. I think prepping the food in advance will be key - that will be make it harder to find an excuse to slip from the diet Smiley.

I gave this recipe a go the other day... http://produceonparade.com/thai-quinoa-burgers/.

I made itty bitty versions though and served them on whole wheat rolls. I mixed up mayo, toasted sesame oil and srirachi sauce to go with them. A little labor intensive but yum!

Good luck, Mare! I have felt multiple times that I should do an elimination diet, but I can never get started. It's so hard! I'll be interested in how you do!

OMG, those quinoa burgers look amazing, Lime. Must pin and try, though they do look like a lot of work.

I've been slipping on cutting out sugar lately, though intake is still pretty low. Someone brought girl scout cookies into work, and who could turn those down?? I swear office life is the ultimate test of willpower.

We did try pho for the first time recently and it was pretty amazing. I've had a hankering to try photojenn's recipe. Has anyone else had great success with an at-home pho recipe?

Mmm I love pho! Never tried it at home though.

I can't eat quinoa (unfortunate last meal previous to a bout of stomach flu) but those burgers do look good!

Yesterday wasn't bad, I had my rice/beans, broccoli and a little ground beef. Sauces are hard, I need to get some coconut aminos I think, supposed to be similar to soy sauce. Anyone tried those?

What's everyone up to these days? Found any good recipes lately?

Apparently last time I updated this thread I was doing the elimination diet. I did that for a week or so and then said "screw it!" ha! I really think my issues are sugar--leads to munchies/binging and dairy--milk or ice cream leads to digestion problems.

Trying to just eat healthy and not "diet" now. That's a different mindset than I'm used to. We're working on eating less dairy/breads/starchy veggies/grains/processed foods and more meats/veggies/fruits/good fats. I'm not restricting cheese though, because cheese makes life happy Cheesy

Tonight we had fajita salads--base of lettuce topped with sizzling steak/peppers/onions, avocado, salsa, and a bit of sour cream cheese (no pic)

Last night was salmon, mashed cauliflower, and avocado


Dessert: fresh raspberries with coconut cream and sliced almonds


Salad from the other day: greens, peppers, scoop of chicken salad, mandarin oranges, honey mustard dressing, cashews and horseradish deviled egg



On the menu for the next week is an Asian chicken slaw--shredded cabbage, shredded carrot, chopped poached chicken , sliced almonds, green onion, sesame seeds, with a vinaigrette made with a touch of sesame oil.
