Hey raster, thanks so much for the heads up! I KNEW something was up with the site’s diet.
Okay, as far as things that I eat and how I usually prepare it:
Skinless chicken breasts
Ground lean beef (or naturally fed beef with no hormones)
Onions (yellow, pearl, etc)
Hershey’s Natural Unsweetened cocoa powder
Brown rice crackers and chips
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Apple Cider Vinegar
Milled Flax seed (with my yogurt)
Plain nonfat yogurt (the label reads 19g carbs and 17g of sugars)
Brown rice pasta
Brown rice flour
Salted almond butter
Seasonings and ingredients:
Cayenne red pepper
Fresh lemon juice
Curry Powder (fenugreek, coriander, cumin, turmeric, red pepper, garlic, and sulfiting agents)
Rubbed Dalmation Sage
Salted sweet cream butter (0 carbs, 11g fat)
Lemongrass ginger tea
Hot chocolate (with almond milk, truvia, vanilla extract, salt, and unsweetened cocoa powder)
We usually sautee, stir fry, or bake the vegetables with the meat. We cook the rice in a rice cooker. Seasonings are added as everything is being cooked, never after. A big bowl of amaranth might see two to three packets of truvia. I don’t always, but I sometimes put in a packet of truvia with my tea. I use between 9-11 packets of truvia when making my “brown rice bread”. Now that I think on it, we never steam or eat anything raw…
Hmm, so let me elaborate on my proportions. That seems to make a big difference too.
4 Eggs and my brown rice bread as mentioned above (a thick slice, about 1″ thick, 5″ wide, and 2.5″ high)
1 cup of cooked amaranth w/ 2-3 truvia packs and a small amount of almond milk.
2 cups of plain yogurt with a small amount of milled flax seed.
Usually dinner leftovers from the night before.
If not then I’ll trade in one of my breakfast options up above, whichever one I didn’t have that morning.
Smaller portion of plain yogurt either 1/2 cup or 1 full cup
Rickeworks Brown Rice chips w/sea salt
Lundberg Organic Brown Rice Cakes
Stew or stir-fry combining any of the above ingredients
Grilled/baked Chicken breasts (just one)
Cooked ground beef/turkey w/veggies (usually a cup’s worth)
Brown rice (2 cup’s worth)
Spaghetti using organic tomato sauce, veggies, ground beef/turkey and brown rice pasta. (one full plate–dunno how that would be translated into a measurement. Maybe 3-4 cups worth of spaghetti and sauce?)
Okay, so that’s everything I can think of at the moment…Do you have any good sources for buying probiotics online perhaps? Buying it from the store gets pricey. I was using amazon because of the free shipping and deals. If I stuck this out for six months (starting today – sigh) would that work? I’m even afraid of moving to a different phase. Maybe it would be safer (if harder) to stick with phase 1 the whole way through?
