New England Clam Chowder

I found the most wonderful recipe for Clam Chowder at Michelle’s blog, Brown Eyed Baker. Here is the LINK to the recipe and here is the Link to her Blog.

The recipe was really good and satisfied my craving for some good clam chowder. New England style is the best in my opinion. I did not have any thyme so I just used dried parsley in its place then garnished with fresh parsley.

I served it with good ol Saltines. I have switched from the Atkins diet to Weight Watchers. It is hard to eat right during the Christmas season.

I also tried Ally’s Kitchen’s recipe from her cookbook for Lemon Pepper Steak. I can’t share the recipe here as it is copyrighted but I will tell you that it is easy, bohemian, and really good.  I took pictures of the steak but do you think I can find it? NO! Oh well picture a good thick rib eye with a lot of seasonings on it and then grilled, yum!.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christ-Mas!! Jesus loves you!

Low Carbohydrate NY Style Cheesecake

Posted on

I really like cheesecake, it is one of the sweets that I miss while on Atkins. So today I am trying Jeprooster’s Low Carb New York Style cheesecake with a different “graham cracker” crust recipe that I found on the web. This should be really good and I will post the recipe here or you can click on the link to get it. Later I will post some pictures of the process.

It is a good day in Tim-land.

The cheesecake recipe is the same as a regular cheesecake but calls for Splenda granulated instead of sugar. The crust is made with almond flour and flax meal and butter.

So far the batter tastes great. I think it is not too sweet but just right.

This also has a topping that is made from sour cream and heavy cream just like the NY ones.

Atkins and Thanksgiving

Posted on

 

First I want to say that Thanksgiving is a time that we give God thanks for all that He does in our lives. It should be a time of fellowship with one another and honoring God for His faithfulness to us.

Also I am on Atkins so that means a lot of stuff I will not be able to have unless I go off the diet for one day. I really don’t want to do that so I am looking for recipes that I can have while on induction.

First I have found a low carb pie crust recipe and I am going to try it out before thanksgiving with my friend Darin A. and we found a sugar free pumpkin pie recipe to go in the crust.

Next we need to look at califlower potatoes and see if we can have a good mashed potatoes substitute.

And I think we found a good stuffing recipe as well so we will see how it all comes out and I will post recipes and pictures here for all to see.

Atkins continues

Posted on

I have been on Atkins for 15 weeks now and I have lost 22 lbs so far. I have stalled out for the last month because of slipping off the plan but I am back on track this week. So far it has been a good re-start (not that I had stopped doing Atkins, I just had a few days here and there were I slipped for one or two meals).

The induction phase has been good but I have had some issues with cravings for sugar or baked goods. I think it is because I have been having caffeine when I should be having decaffeinated coffee and or teas. So this week no caffeine for me.

My friends who are doing this with me are having good success as well, 1 of them has lost 45 pounds in the same time period. That is awesome.

I have set a short-term goal to be under 200 lbs by Thanksgiving. I will have to add more exercise to reach that goal.

Say a prayer for me and thanks for reading.

Cat Sitting

Posted on

So today begins the cat sitting at Ricardo and Karens. The cats are Snowball and Elliot. They are cool cats but both are not used to me and will not come out of their room (yes they have their own room but it doubles as the craft room as well).
These two cats are like kids to Karen and Ricardo and they are well loved. I am having fun sitting with them and hope they will come downstairs soon.
First picture is Snowball, second is Elliot.

Atkins To The Rescue

Posted on

Here I am getting ready to start on another journey, as this journey of obesity that I have been on is getting really old and I decided I no longer want to be on it, and besides the tickets are WAY too expensive (health issues, no flexibility and having to look at myself in the mirror).

So myself and a couple of good friends and fellow workers in the Lord are going on a new journey, the Atkins journey. These two guy’s, Darin and Rich, have done Atkins before so they have been giving me a lot of good hints and such.. I am so blessed to know these men of God.When one starts the Atkins plan it is suggested that you have a ‘carb blowout party’ in order to get rid of all the unnecessary carbs from your kitchen. Well I live with roommates who may or may not go on the Atkins plan as well so in lieu of a carb party Darin and I are going to feast on carbs at this years CA. State Fair this Sunday. Stay tuned for a blog post on all the goodies we tried at the fair in a few days.

So this page will begin to have recipes that are carb friendly and hopefully some of you will want to share some carb friendly recipes with us as well. That would be so cool.

Well that is this post, I hope you stay tuned and give your comments.

Keep looking up and remember to enjoy life, share your faith.
