What's for dinner...?
I'm having a hard time coming up with different low carb meals... Thought maybe it would help with sharing ideas for dinner. What you cooking tonight???

We're having plain cube steaks & tossed salad.

Bugg 01-21-2011 23:13

I'm having steak cooked on a charcoal grill, with fresh steamed asparagus and green beans. I am also having toss salad... I'm not sure of the dressing...

My Sweetie is coming over...:D

Haddock in Brandi's breading, tartar sauce, broccoli, carrots and maybe a sugar-free jello or a little NSA (no-sugar-added) ice cream for dessert.

lol Bugg don't get me started.... food has been my focus all week. But I have to say I'm thinking the choice of carbs on this FODMAP diet I'm doing seems to have a better impact on my BGLs so far. Tonight I'm going to cook a shepherds pie (maybe you call it cottage pie?) with the allowed vegies and I'll use mix of sweet & normal potato for the topping on it. Haven't had this dish in a while... so not sure what impact it will have on my BGLs. But I'm getting stuck on ideas on what to cook as lots of usuals I can't have... I can't use onion or garlic which is both staples in my diet... I use both ingredients in almost everything I cook for lunch/dinners. I'm having to think creatively which is good.... but I don't tend to use recipes for meals... make it up as I go.

I only ate dinner today, wasn't hungry any other time today. So, I had a Jimmy Dean bacon breakfast bowl for dinner :confused: I used to think that you couldn't have breakfast food for dinner. It doesn't matter any more. I also had a 1/2 cup cottage cheese and a Weight Watcher latte bar. Sugar free cinnamon roll pudding is for my bedtime snack. :hungry:

well the shepherds pie turned out Ok... wasn't bad on my BGLs either. It's strange cooking without onion... but I used a very small amount of crushed garlic in this pie last night... even though I'm supposed to be avoiding it... but dietitian reminded me that it's 'low FODMAP' and not necessarily 'excluding'... although I'm trying very hard to exclude stuff at the moment. Just couldn't face the thought of absolutely no garlic in that dish. :)

Shepherds Pie has always been one of our favorites, and I've avoided it since D because of the mashed potatoes. Now that I'm able to get green bananas more readily, I think I'm going to try mashing a batch of those, just as I would potatoes - with butter, sour cream & cream cheese - and that should make a fine topping for the S. Pie.

I cooked another batch of GB today & had a bowl of Marty's scalloped green bananas tonight . . . absolutely delicious!

Mashed cauliflower instead of potato also works well for Shepards Pie - I didn't believe it would, but it does.

I made pulled pork for dinner tonight .. and we'll be having it for most of the week too! Yummmm! I also made some of the foccasia flax "bread" - I can make a sandwich tomorrow. :D

I ate with my sister and her husband on Saturday. We had pepperoni pizza, I had one slice. The 3 of us shared a philly steak & cheese sub and we all chowed down on a hug salad. My sister and her family are eating healthier nowadays, and I took a bag of almond flour to give her and she is promising to make her version of chocolate chip cookies with the flour, she is a good baker and I believe that she will come up with a recipe. I gave her the almond pancake recipe and that is what they are having for breakfast. They seemed excited about getting busy with something new to eat. My sister is not diabetic and is very healthy. She is a walker and is into competion body building. She walks 3 miles a day 6 days per week. She walks ran or shine!
