Reach for something BFC approved

Hello Friends,

Last night hubby and I went to Applebees for dinner. We had the 2 for $20 deal.

Spinach and Artichoke dip with celery

Steak w/just broccoli
I ate only 1/2 of the 7 oz. steak and 1/2 the broccoli and took the rest home. I always just have water with lemon when I go out.

In the beginning I used to be a little afraid to go out and didn't know what to eat. I know now that I can eat healthy where ever I go and usually just try to make it simple. I do prefer to eat at home though. It is so much healthier.

My Breakfast this morning:
I took the little left over steak and cut up, broccoli cut up, mushrooms, cheese, and 2 eggs, with 2 slices of zuchinni-cheese-coconut flour bread w/natures hollow on top.

There are many times when I feel like I need something sweet. These are the times when we feel like cheating.  That's OK. Just learn to train you hands to reach for something BFC approved instead of the bad stuff.

Yesterday between lunch and dinner I had a little bit of Clemmy's ice cream, under 1/2 cup. Now I could have passed on that, but if you are gonna cheat, make it something healthy. Or - During those times when we feel ganged up on or picked on or just having a bad day - reach for 2 squares of 86% chocolate and some RediWhip. It's a great sweet pick-me-up.

My lunch today:
Amber posted a link yesterday for a zucchini pizza. I made it today.
I used 1 zucchini and sliced into 1/2" slices.
rub both sides with EVOO and I put in toaster oven under the broiler on non-stick foil
Broil both sides slightly brown
Take out and put sauce on top (I used Seeds of Change Romagna 3 cheese pasta sauce)
then mozzarella cheese and turkey pepperoni
put back in and broil until done.

It was very moist and good. I ate it with some veggie straws.

That's it for now. Have a great day :-)

My thought for the day:

Acceptance and Friendship

Acceptance is the universal currency of real friendship. It does not warp or shape or wrench a person to be anything other than what they are.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. I'm glad you had a date!
    When we learn to eat out-and stay on program (or whatever we want to call it) We're redefining what it means to be one a 'diet'.
    Do you still count your S/C's? Or do you just know?

  2. Mmmmm the pizza zucchini looks delicious!! Next time I go to the store I am going to buy the ingredients and give it a try. :)

  3. Im posting my Zucchini Boat recipe in the morning. I make mine a little less like a pizza, but you can do anything with them! I saw your photo and wondered what bread you used. Not until I read it did I realize it was zucchini!! And Rosie I know you are always saying you dont like the FT, but that was a pretty good FT day! :)

  4. I want to try all of the zucchini things you and Amber post about. The pizza looks awesome and your chili, I made the other night, was fantastic. After reading an excerpt (on Amber's blog) of WheatBelly, I really want to layoff the wheat and zucchini is a good way to do that and get my veggies! :)
    Hope all is well! :)

  5. Love the zucchini pizza. Dinner out looks great too. Hope all is going well with you. Sending big hugs!

  6. Does anyone know of a stevia hot cocoa mix or an easy recipe?

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.
