So when looking through the recipes, I came across the cauliflower "mashed potatoes" that I have heard people rave about and I thought, I just MIGHT be able to do this. And I love fish, and there are SOOO many fish recipes, but I would usually pair it with Pasta or Rice. And Usually vegetables. But not having that pasta and rice, just makes me feel like I am "missing" something. Ugh. How hard will this be!
And I love crabmeat. And I love tuna fish like it is going out of style. But it's like... I can't put it on bread? Or a cracker? or in a Pita? Am I just supposed to eat it by the spoonful? What? On a SALAD you say? I don't think I can eat more greenies. It might kill me.
I was thrilled to run across Hummus (mmmm) and I can't wait to make it, but I am like, how will I eat it without the pita bread? I don't get it. I am so stumped. I guess I could dip veggies in it. But I swear I am feeling veggie overload coming on. The only veggie I can eat that much of is either spinach, mushrooms, olives, or tomatoes. And the occasional onions and green peppers. But how can I eat JUST that? I know I know, cheese and meat. Whatever. I will just have to deal. Is it bizarre that I want to throw a hissy fit over CARBS?!~
Oh and I do love Artichokes. But the key is how the hell am I going to make a MEAL out of these things? they all sound like COMPONENTS of a meal. I was pleased to see pistachios but I could vividly see myself counting them into snack baggies of 30 pistachios each. And is that 30 per day? 30 per snack? 30 per week? 30 per two weeks of phase 1? Ugh. This is why I don't
Mmmmm.... I can eat sugar free fudgesicles? Well why wasn't that on page ONE?! If you want to
The hardest part.... no cereal? What? No Chicken? No Honey Baked Ham? No Carrots (I could give a crap about carrots anyway, but they are on all those salads) no FRUIT? Ugh. And only plain fat free yogurt. None of that fruity goodness. No ICE CREAM? Oh wait, sugarless Fudgecicles, right.
This will be tough. Okay, enough whining. I need to go now and count my nuts.
