Foods Does cereal keep you full? Jun 25 2012
17:42 (UTC)

I nearly never have cereal with just milk... that would last me two hours, max!

However, I love cereal on top of oatmeal (weird I know) with almond butter.  High fiber cereal :)

I also love cereal on top of greek yogurt, honey, almond butter / peanut butter!

If you just want milk and cereal however, try adding a scoop of protein powder into the milk (something yummy like vanilla, chocolate, etc!).  I find it helps a lot with satiety.  Or trying using an assortment of cereals :)

Or switch to eating it with full fat milk... I find almond milk isn't very filling at all!

breakfast au bon pain chocolate chip cookie + chocolate banana protein shake

snack hershey's snack size milk chocolate with almonds

lunch spinch salad with grilled chicken, carrots, beets, edamame, scallions, crispy noodles, topped with balsamic

snack probably chocolate cake (someone's birthday!)  more hersheys... haha. chocolate fiend :d

dinner dunno yet. maybe sushi? or will attempt to make homemade pizza!

dessert i've learned to make healthy homemade froyo! blend some frozen berries with stevia and mix into greek yoghurt!  deliciousssss :)

I'm definitely going to have to try that froyo, yogurt is one of my favorite foods in the world. Espeically froyo but to go out for it gets so expensive. That's a brilliant idea! I'm a little jealous of your menu today chocolate, pizza, froyo..delicious!

hehe, yeah... it was a pretty good day of eats.  :) 

it's my new favorite thing!  i even had it for breakfast when it's really hot.  buy the frozen "mixed berries" at any supermarket, throw about a cup into the blender with some stevia/sweetener (i have a magic bullet, it gets a little difficult) and comes out as the icey sorbet!  then i just mix in a few tablespoons of plain greek yogurt to make it into "froyo".  it tastes absolutely amazing... and it's mostly berries too!  :)  i usually top with some almond butter / fats and carbs too for sateity :)

Original Post by epinephrine:

I've recently discovered bocconcini, a soft, mild, delicately flavoured mozzarella that's formed into balls and packed in water. It comes conveniently portion-controlled, although the portions are kind of big depending on what size you get - mine are large and about 360 cals apiece, but they're pretty high in protein. I love the texture - lovely and soft, but still substantial and chewy and incredibly satisfying. Very filling, very comforting, andpairs well with everything - especially tomatoes and fresh herbs. Tomato-bocconcini salads (insalata caprese) are my new obsession, an absolutely perfect light summer lunch. And bocconcini makes a lovely, gooey, melty mess when heated, too - I think I'm gonna make tomato and bocconcini pizzas this weekend! I really need to get a basil plant so I can do it properly, with fresh whole basil leaves. Mmmm. 

omg, is that what they're called?! bocconcini?!? i've always gotten them in my salads but i just called them baby mozzarella balls. LOL! i LOVE THEM SO MUCH. try pairing it with arugula, avocado,  tomato, and basil and drizzle with balsamic reduction (cook balsamic vinaigrette for a few minutes and it because this lovely super concentrated sauce)  - one of my absolute favorite combos! or you can top a pizza with the same combo as well :) 

i've been recently obsessed with kalamata olives and pickles... anytime of the day. also sauerkraut which is this pickled cabbage which is kind of salty, crunchy, and slightly sweet - i think the hot weather has me cravy salty cold things, lol!

ALSO been obsessed with cutting an avocado in half, removing the seed, and pouring an egg into the center and baking it so the whites harden but the yolk remains runny - and then eating it like that topped with some really fresh crispy bread and s+p. like so! ocado.html

beets and avocado go together really nicely too. mostly i've just been on an avocado kick. :) guacamole on EVERYTHING.

b oatmeal, whipped banana, almond butter, cocoa powder, dollop of greek yogurt, topped with high fiber cereal - this combo freaking lasts me SIX HOURS. i do not know how. i think it's the mix of fat, complex carbs, protein and fiber... 

l lost appetite for lunch -_- had a catered meal today though, ham and cheese and mayo 6" sub, nachos, diet pepsi and a lot of mini reeses. hahaha. 

d been eating leftovers all week... roasted sweet potato and ketchup, almond butter + honey + greek yogurt, some lowfat swiss cheese + tortillas. miso soup on the side.

Foods Does diet soda really cause cancer? Jun 11 2012

the reason you're having headaches is because you're addicted to the caffeine in the diet sodas, not because of the sweeteners! you can try replacing it with coffee or tea instead if you truly want to get yourself off of it!

i know it takes about 5 days "cold turkey" if you want to get yourself off caffeine... but it will be a very painful 5 days where you feel like you're constantly headachey, tired, grumpy, and in a bad mood.  try taking some advil :P (i've done it before) or slowly stop drinking it, maybe start drinking tea instead (less caffeine).

although honestly i don't think there's anything inherently wrong with diet soda. millions of people drink it... i'm not sure if they drink two a day, but atleast you're not inhaling tons of sugar into your body. i have a diet soda now at night now after dinner haha (i dunno why i started doing it, i found a new chocolate fudge soda and it's like dessert for me) and it's caffeine free, so i figure it's ok to drink at night :p no worries, as long as you're still eating heathily otherwise, you're good!

it's impossible to eat a 100% clean diet and not EVER eat anything "bad" for you, i think anyone would go crazy... just eat what you like :)
