I'll bet you may be wondering if I fell off the face of the earth, since I haven't posted in a month. I was continuing to do very well on the No S Diet until about a week ago. It had gotten to the point where people were thinking I was getting too thin! Well, I thought that gave me license to break No Sing. My heartburn started coming back because I was eating too late in the evening. I started feeling lethargic from eating more than one serving. That made me less motivated to go on my walks. I put back on 5 pounds...which actually is ok for my heighth, but I feel much better without the extra 5 pounds. So NOW, I'm going to go back to what I know works! No S DIETING! So that is why you see today's lunch posted here! How have all of YOU been?

One way to add egg/egg whites to oatmeal that will create a smooth, silky texture is:
-Cook your oatmail on stovetop like you mormally do
-Add milk or cream and other other condiments (salt, sugar, etc.)
-When the oatmeal is cooked, turn off the heat or take the pot away from the heat completely
-Stir in the egg (usually 1 whole egg or 2 egg white), and quickly stir it with a stirrer. Make sure the pot is away from the heat!
- Stir it fast enough and in a minute or so, it will see the "egg drop soup" effect with smooth strands of egg incorporated into the oatmeal!

Have you been craving something a little different and satisfying for breakfast? You'll have to try this! Basically, it's a vegetarian omelet with a little cheddar cheese in a soft taco. This morning my vegetables of choice were tomatoes, green onions, cooked carrots/spinach, and peas. I added two scrambled eggs, topped with a little bit of cheddar cheese for flavor and sprinkled garlic salt to taste. It was really delicious and smelt so good while cooking in the pan. I made one for my daughter also, and she loved it. Of course, I had to have my cup of fruit as a side dish!

As you can see, I'm still enjoying eating salmon for my meals. Aldi's has 4 individually wrapped salmon servings per package. It's an easy 4 minutes in the microwave and it's done! The asparagus also comes FRESH/FROZEN in a bag. Soooooo easy to make a quick lunch! Delicious too!

Back in July I earned my blue ribbon by following the No S Diet for 21 days in a row. I'm now 15 pounds lighter and working on losing another 10 pounds. Make sure you take a blue ribbon (on my sidebar) when you have reached 21 days also! You deserve it!

I love the texture and flavors fruit lends to my meals, not to mention the vitamins! A big plus for me is the way fruit satisfies that sweet tooth I have. It's a great addition to any meal! Try it sometime!

Last night I enjoyed a delicious supper of BBQ Chicken Breast, Sliced Sweet Potato, and Broccoli Salad on a bed of Lettuce. <------my favorite. :) It was fast and easy to put together. Best of all, it was filling and healthy. Preparing meals on the No S Diet doesn't take a lot of preparation, but with a little bit of effort it's easy to come up with some tasty and affordable meals.

It's amazing how quick and easy a No S Diet Supper can be put together. At the beginning of the week, I browsed the grocery shelf for something a little more exciting to add to my salads. I decided to try marinated artichokes and Greek Kalamata Olives. It added a nice zing to the meal!

P.S. Yes, that is Cool Whip on my cereal! :) We were out of milk, and since it was an "S" Day, I was in the free and clear!

Do you really mean I can eat the foods I love and still lose weight? Following the No S Diet has shown me that I can...and THE PORTION PLAN reinforces that concept to me. It's all a matter of portions. This is especially helpful on "S" Days when I have the freedom to eat sweets. Authoress Linda Gassenheimer has chosen symbols showing different parts of the hand to indicate how much of each food makes the ideal portion. I paid particular attention to the dessert section. How much dessert can I eat on my "S" days and still be within the limits of healthy eating? She uses two-thumb portions as a measure. Put your two thumbs together and that is the size that a brownie should be. Put two fingers together and that is the portion size for frosted carrot cake, chocolate fudge cake, and strawberry cheesecake. Other desserts also, but you get the idea. This book should be available at your local library. It's something you might find helpful in combination with the No S Diet! Let me know what you think!

I thought it might be fun to get some new ideas for the blogs I have. While at the library yesterday I came across this book about blogs entitled "No One Cares What You Had For Lunch - 100 Ideas for Your Blog". Sometimes I'll post what I ate for lunch. But is it true...does anyone really care what I had for lunch? And so what if they don't care? I care, because it's important to my health and well being. Since being on the No S Diet, I have much more energy than before. I'm putting better foods into my body, and still not depriving myself of the food I really like and crave. I have more discipline over the choices I make and following No S has been a huge part of that. So I guess I answered my own question, eh? :)

* Is it really worth it?

ALDI'S sells pre-packaged Wild Caught Salmon Fillets that make a very nice No S Diet supper.
I just pop it in the microwave for 4 minutes with a little soy sauce sprinkled on top and lay that on top of a nice bed of lettuce/greens with feta cheese crumbles. Nothing could be simpler!
Do you regularly step on the scale? Has a daily weigh-in helped you maintain or lose weight? I have found that even though I may not have lost weight during certain weeks, that if I follow the No S Diet and do my daily walk I lose inches. I haven't totally tossed my scale yet, but I try not to weigh myself more than once a week. No S Dieter, "Blueskighs" has an interesting post on her blog about this also!

Tonight's supper was a little strange. I made baked pasta/sugo for the family, so I had to make sure I saved a place for some of that on my plate. I also had a salad with - GET THIS - blue cheese, gargonzola, and feta cheese crumbles. I added a little plain yogurt with sweetener for my protein and a handful of grapes to top it off. All in all, it was a very satisfying meal. :)
I was very fortunate today in that the luncheon I went to served a very healthy and hearty chicken salad with raspberry vinagrette dressing. It was soooo good! My treats today were a piece of cake, one cookie, some nuts and of course the butter mints on the table! Delish!
