    • What's in your shopping basket?

      I thought I'd start this thread to give me some ideas as to what other people eat... getting right to the source, what's in your weekly grocery shopping basket?

      Trucie's basket:-

      smoked salmon
      loads on tin tuna
      pork/beef mince
      freash fish fillets

      Cooking for one is absolutely ridiculous, hence my boring shopping list...
    • Mines about the same:

      heaps on tinned tuna
      smoked salmon
      green capsicum
      basically any green vegie
      cold meat
      heaps of chicken breast
      diet jelly
      frozen berries

      this plus whatever the kids and hubby eat like bickies, bread, fruit etc etc etc which I haven't touched for about a month. I haven't had a sandwich or piece of toast for about 3 months!!!!

      I love myself!!!!
    • Well you asked Trucie!!

      2-3kg of chicken breast
      2kg of beef fillet
      2kg of Tuna in spring water (I get these 1kg caterers packs)

      i wonder if they eat just egg whites ????

      YUP - 3 white and one yolk for me and 6 whites and 1 yolk for lover boy... :D Oh btw - never eat them raw like Rocky did... it's a big crock... you need to cook egg albumen for it to be properly absorbed by the body
    • raw egg paranoia

      sorry i just can't bare to see anyone eat/drink a raw egg, the whites just looks like SNOT!

      Having said that i love eggs: poached eggs, fried eggs, eggs benedict, omelete... one day when your all brave enough you must try poaching an egg in warm oil, it is so die for! serious....

      I find just egg whites pretty hard to digest day after day for breakfast, i do what Rossana does and have 3 whites and 1 egg with yolk, then run to the train station, get on the train and have 2 muffins :)

      I got my breakfast SORTed !!!
    • Hi Rosanna,

      i know you posted this agessssss ago but I have got to ask you something! You mention eating 6 TIMES A DAY ... did I get that right? I think I am not eating enough ... for instance .. today I had a mock danish for breakfast, about 6.45am (was in a rush for work and its quick and easy. Had a 2 hour drive to work and drank 1/2 litre of water on the way. Had a 25 gram bag of pork crackle about 11ish. Took a chicken salad with me and ate about 2.15pm and only had water since. (At work the girls bring cakes and biscuits and munch all day .... I just ignore it all and try not to think about it which I am finding quite easy really.) I have just got home and have got to decide what to make for dinner now and it's 8.07pm. I think I am doing it all wrong :mad:
      I am into my 4th week and have hardly noticed anything and I think i am being extremely strict on myself. A lady in a health shop suggested I have a blood test in her shop next week and combine the diet that comes with the results of my blood type with low carbing. I AM SOOOOOO CONFUSED!!!!! and I am trying the hardest I have ever tried in my life. I miss not being able to come home and relax with a glass of red wine ... my life sucks at the moment and I am getting depressed :(
