    Great job sprunk and rk!

    My all time favorite veggie is cauliflower! If you haven't used it to substitute potato give it a try!

    Just boil the cauliflower - drain. You can eat plain or add a little fat free or reduced sour cream.

    Yum!

    Actually, the best way to have it is to boil the cauliflower, drain the water, throw away the cauliflower and then make potatoes.

    Cauliflower is huge! I'll roast it, which I love and I'll use it instead of rice. just shred it with a grater and cook in a frying pan with ghee and some olive oil. I'm going to cook the lime chicken tmr. Making my grocery list and will shop in the morning.

    Also looking for a good morning smoothie I can whip up before heading out the door. A green one probably with kale and avocado. Something that will keep me full till lunch! Breakfast is my downfall!!!!
    Thank you fellow 10 clubber for saving my ass....again!!!

    Protein and fiber are good ways to keep you full. I try for at least 20g of protein in a smoothie/shake. Also, you want 'slow carbs' like steel cut oats for the fiber part-rolled or instant oats are not slow carbs. The white refined flours are what make you fat, unless you're going to go running or something right after eating.

    Overnight steel cut oats are my favorite:

    Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a pot. Add 1 cup steel cut oats. Boil for 2 minutes, turn off heat, cover and in the morning it's ready to be reheated. Soft and chewy. You can store the rest in the fridge for later.

    OR

    6 oz of yogurt-greek is best
    add 1/4 cup steel cut oats
    Stir.
    Add in anything else you like, honey, fruit, vanilla, a little bit of milk so it's not as thick...I like hemp hearts and chia seeds for the extra protein and omega-3s.
    Let it sit overnight in the fridge
    Done.

    I actually bought those canning jelly jars so I could make several jars of yogurt to grab and go. I found that the oats stay pretty tough if you leave it overnight, but 24+ hours is best.

    You can try without yogurt, and use a 1 cup milk to 1/4 cup oats ratio, though milk doesn't have as much protein.

    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

    I just did some research on what Costco has for protein powders. I'll be grabbing one of those bad boys tomorrow, along with plenty of veggies. Coconut water is on sale too. Debating on grabbing one of their cases of premade shakes (on sale also) just to have for when I draw a blank on what to eat. Not the ideal food but it will be there for a crutch for when I'm running late or just too tired to cook or even take out the blender

    I was going to start working out today, but I've been fighting a stomach bug since Saturday since I chose to eat a veggie sandwich that apparently does not like me.

    Oh no..RK feel better :-(

    I had a good day. Smoothie this am, kale and broccoli salad with nuts and currants (from Trader Joes) with some rosemary ham. Tonight I have a crock pot of delish beef and veggies that will be ready when I get home. Had an apple for a snack, unsweetened Iced T (my abso fav ) and loaded up on water. By tomorrow or Wed. I'll be peeing like every hour.

    I also just ordered a planner / organizer from Amazon. Bummin it started in Nov but if I like it I'll know to order it by October this year. It has goal setting stuff in it so maybe I can motivate that way also.

    No gym today since I ran around at work like a mad woman and hit my 10,000 steps by 2 pm. I feel good tho, no 3pm slump :bee:

    Thank you fellow 10 clubber for saving my ass....again!!!
