Hello, friends and neighbors, it's the SongDude postin' at ya… for five weeks now, I've been using Stevia as a sweetener for my iced tea, et cetera. I've been a hawk for watching my carb intake… early on, I got a bit depressed - due to the lack of food variety, but, I slowly added things like Cheerios for breakfast (with the Stevia sweetener, and skim milk); apples for snacks (every once in awhile); salads, with low-calorie dressings, and gluten-free flour was used when I made bread (it now tastes really good, since I switched the recipe up). I have lost 16 pounds, and almost an inch off of my waistline. I've looked at some of the recipes that were listed here during yesterday's feed - some looked good… others looked… well… okay, as I only eat tuna, grouper, flounder, clams and oysters when it comes to fish and shellfish (salmon… not me, Naomi… I tried gravlax once, but, it is made with brown sugar; so, that's a no-no). Anyone out there that I've friended, who has really good food ideas, and recipes, send them to me in a message… I would really appreciate it, since I have to watch my wife eat macadamia nut cookies… dammit, it hurts to shop with her… help me, if you can.
