I'm Not Dieting - I've Changed My Lifestyle

HA HA I fooled him...

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday I realized after the day was over that I didn't eat any grains at all.
For breakfast; 2 eggs w/ mushrooms, a little bit onion, baby spinach, cheese, scrambled together w/cottage cheese, 1/2 avocado, 1 lemon muffin, and a few berries.

Lunch; a spinach salad w/tuna, feta cheese, bacon bits, 1/2 zucchini cut up, mayo and a few croutons.

I had planned to have 2 muffins after but I rand errands and got to busy and forgot. Then the next thing I knew it was almost dinner. I got some stuff to make the pumpkin chili that I saw online and on Amber's blog.

Last week I told my hubby about the pumpkin chili and he said YUCK! Not for me! I mentioned it to Amber and she said "just make it and don't tell him". So last night he had to work so I made it for me. I also steamed a head of cauliflower and riced it in my food processor and put it in a bowl in the fridge for later.

So I ate the chili over 1/2 cup of the riced cauliflower. Because I didn't eat that much all afternoon - I was hungry after. I am not used to eating tomatoes that much any more cause of the sugar. I only used a small can of diced tomatoes and the pumpkin, maybe 1/3 cup. It was a bit sweet for me of what I am used to any more, but I like it.

So this morning I had 1/2 cup of the riced cauliflower in a bowl w/ 1/2 avocado cut up and 2 scrambled eggs w/ cheese on top. w/a lemon muffin and a few berries on the side. It was a good breakfast.

Then Hubby cam home very tired and looking in the fridge and sees the container w/the chili. He gets excited and says "did you make spaghetti?" I said no chili, it goes over the riced cauliflower I made. He says can I have some? I say- for breakfast? Yeah he says, so I made him a bowl and warmed it up.

He had to put some spicy BBQ sauce on top - cause he puts that or catsup on everything. He Loved it!! Half way thru I said " do you want to know what I put in there now?"  So he stops eating and says OK-what? I told him the pumpkin - and he looks at me and says - "well its a vegetable".

I said why do you keep fighting me to try all this stuff I am making? You never want to try it - but then you love it?? He says -  from now on just give it to me and don't tell me. HAHA like that's gonna work. He's like a kid.

He told me that the guys at work want to know if I'm gonna make a healthy cook book with all the stuff I make. They are funny. This blog is my book. and it would be different if I actually thought up all this stuff myself.

We are a TEAM. We share all our thoughts and ideas and that's how we succeed at this, by sharing.

Dawn and I are muffin twins, Who else wants to be our muffin twin?? haha

Thanks for listening. Lots of love to ya. Please don't forget to support my friends on the blog list below. WWRD??

My thought for the day:

Mind over Matter

body partsIt is the mind that makes the body.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Haha! I love that you tricked the hubby! I made the pumpkin chili (with beans and no tomatoes)last night, too and tricked my kids. They have no idea that pumpkin is even in it. Happy Halloween!

  2. Hey muffin twin!! My hubby says the same thing - just don't tell me what's in it. LOL - it doesn't work, b/c he always can tell something is different! Happy halloween!

  3. I'm a muffin twin...or triplet! I made that chili on the night of our little snowstorm. It was great. But I didn't put in tomatoes. Was that in the recipe? I swear my brain is mush these days! Hugs from me to you!

  4. O.K. I have to make that chili now. It's been cool & rainy here lately, so the chili sounds delish. I loved how you "tricked" him...totally works on husbands. Enjoyed your post.

  5. I am so glad that you and Dawn love to share your recipe ideas with us. Funny your husband did not even know about the pumpkin...what they dont know cant hurt them huh? I am gonna have to give that a try. Happy Halloween.

  6. You are a good influence on him too! I obviously need to get into the muffin craze! I saw your egg poacher on Amazon for 2.49! I need to order that too. So many good decisions to make, so little time:)

  7. I thought that chili was awesome! I like mine spicy and for some reason it is always better the next day! So glad he liked it, after I had it, I would never have guessed it had pumpkin either!

  8. I didn't see the pumpkin chile recipe, but it looks like everyone loves it!! My question is why put pumpkin in chili at all when we can already make it BFC friendly? About the husbands, I think I will start telling my husband there is something he doesn't like in the recipe just so there will be something left for me, lol!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
