I did much better today - first of all, I figured out that one big difference in my diet now than before is that I was drinking a lot of skim milk. I know a lot of people don't do dairy, and I can only drink lactose free milk, but when I drink milk, I am not as hungry. So the past 2 days I've added back in milk and Luna Bar snacks and I can really tell this difference. So I think with a couple days working on it, I can get my calorie count back down by using milk to stave off hunger.

Tonight I made a dinner I was really proud of: shrimp and pasta with vegetables. I use the frozen cooked shrimp that I got on sale at WF a couple weeks ago and the black bean spaghetti. I sautéed garlic in 1/2 butter/1/2 olive oil, then added red pepper, sugar snap peas, asparagus and scallions. Then I added the shrimp and some of the pasta water -- not from the black bean pasta -- from the regular pasta I made for everyone else-- I don't think the black bean pasta water will work -- and some salt, and finally some fresh basil. This was really really good. I mean good enough for company. I will definitely do this again.

So I think the best thing I've learned to make since I started on this diet -- except for my now famous (among my friends and family) "fried rice" quinoa -- is my version of those delicious cheesy skillet meals you get at diners. Instead of potatoes, mine are based on sweet onions. Tonight I had sweet onions, egg whites, chicken chorizo, spinach, and low-fat swiss cheese and it was delicious beyond all possible belief. I also do it with turkey Italian sausage and tomato sauce so it comes out like pizza which is so satisfying in a world that no longer includes pizza. Actually, it's been years since I ate pizza with any regularity, but I still get cravings for it, and when I do, I make this Italian sausage pizza skillet. It's got all the rich flavor and cheesiness of pizza, but without the oil or the crust, which is where all the pizza bad stuff is. Yum

I seem to have recovered a bit today. I ate normally yesterday - within the framework of what I am supposed to be eating. Today I have already had some salad, and I hope that I don't pay for that. The thing is, my sister and I went to have lunch with an old friend of my mom's. The friend lives in a lovely retirement community and she is now too frail to go out. So we ate in the community's diningroom. The lunch entrée choices were grilled cheese and beef sandwich or make your own deli sandwich -- none of which I can eat. So my choice was-- eat nothing and embarrass our friend or eat salad. I opted for salad with a piece of cheese. By the time I got home at 3:30, I was starving. So I made a second lunch -- which guarantees that I won't fall over from hunger during Hermione's agility class but wasted a lot of calories! On the other hand, it was late enough in the afternoon, that I can probably get away with a very light dinner after agility. Maybe I'll make some egg whites then -- bump up my protein for the day without going over the calorie limit.
