    Hi All! (Back on South Beach Diet)

    Thu Sep 13, 2012 12:22 pm Groupie
    Just wanted to pop in and say "hi"
    Monday, I started back on South Beach Diet
    last night, I made the cauliflower "rice" dish
    Cauliflower Rice - Low Carb
    jazzed it up with dill and chives

    I loved it, my husband loved it, my daughter.. not so much
    (maybe next time without the dill)

    Also, has anyone here tried the Shriataki noodles
    (miracle noodles, yam flour noodles)

    wanting to know what they were like

    I checked out the website and they have them at teh WF near me

    I've used the noodles a couple of times. I can say that you need to rinse them well-it's possible to think they are "off" when you first open the package, but if all looks good from the outside and it's not puffed, probably they are fine. I put them in soup, and made some spaghetti with them. In both cases I had enough seasoning to make them part of the dish, rather than the focus. I think they are a good low-carb food.

    Hi Chrissy - DH and I have been doing SB diet since last October. It has become a way of eating for us as opposed to just a diet.

    Have you tried Carb Free Cloud Bread by chance? I made it today for the first time
    but am not so sure it worked out right. My bread looks just like the photos but the recipe says they would be crumbly like meringue when removed from the oven, but mine were more spongy and are still even after 12 hrs. We'll see tomorrow if the consistency is more like bread. If so, this recipe is genius as a bread replacement.

    Good luck with the diet!

    week three down 9lbs, I can't complain!
    that cloud bread is something similar to the atkins "rolls" that my mom used to make waaayyy back in the day when she actually used to go to SEE Dr, Atkins in NY (waaayyyy back in the day)

    I may pick up those noodle things at WF this weekend, because I'm planning on making Italian Wedding Soup and the Mister likes it with some sport of "pasta" in it (I always ate it w/ no pasta or pastina, but to each his own)
    my stepdaughter is getting married in July.... I hate to say it, but the thought of meeting hubbys ex-wifes entire family made me go
    ugh! icon_rolleyes.gif
    I'm fat! I don't want to meet these people looking like this

    (I know, it's a little petty and/or shallow of me, but I'm allowed to have my moments, right?)
    whatever the reason, I'm already starting to feel better, and I'm getting out there at least three nights a week and power walking around my neighborhood for 30-40 minutes
    feels great!

    Good for you Chrissy! Stick with it and you'll do great. For DH and I we lost the most inches from our mid-section. I lost about 15 lbs on the diet and am now back to what I weighed 20 yrs ago when I got married. DH has more trouble staying "on the wagon" but he has alot of stress at work and I think that causes him to crave things he shouldn't eat.

    Now that we have been on the diet for almost a year, I don't even have to think about it anymore....meal planning is pretty easy. I only make mashed potatoes for the kids once or twice a week. DH and I usually have meat and at least 2 veggies for dinner. Lunches are soups or salads. We are both big soup eaters so that is easy for us too. Breakfast is the meal that I find a bit more difficult. I get tired of eggs and I don't like cereals much
    and of course we try to avoid bread/toast. Fruit and yogurt is okay now and then.

    I'll have to see if I can find the Atkins bread recipe you are referring to. I borrowed one of his books from the library but it seems to me that you had to use his "Atkins" mix to make the I right about that?

    hi Mum's i'm a little late on the response but I found the original recipe:
    (The Original) Basic Diet Revolution Rolls
    Straight from the 1972 Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution book
    Makes 6 rolls

    Pam spray
    3 eggs separated
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    3 tablespoons cottage cheese
    1 package of Sugar Twin*

    1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
    2. Separate eggs very carefully (make sure that none of the yolk gets into the whites.)
    3. Spray Pam on a Teflon cookie sheet.**
    4. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until whites are stiff but not dry.
    5. Fold in yolks, cottage cheese and Sugar Twin*** (Be extremely careful not to break down the egg whites. Mix for no more than 1 minute.)
    6. Place the mixture carefully on the Teflon cookie sheet, gently putting one tablespoon full on top of another until each “roll” is about 2 inches high. Repeat this until you have 6 piles.
    7. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for about 1 hour.****

    Total carbs 3.1; grams per serving .5

    NOTES since its publication:

    *can substitute Splenda or your preferred sweetener
    **muffin top pan and small Wilton cake pans work fantastic for these rolls
    ***recommend blending these ingredients together first before folding in
    ****cooking times in variations range from 30 minutes to 1 hour

    VARIATIONS TO THE BASIC ROLLS since its publications:

    Instead of cottage cheese, replace with:

    3 tablespoons mayonnaise, OR
    3 tablespoons ricotta cheese, OR
    3 tablespoons of cream cheese

    Egg Yolk Add-ins:

    -Add a scoop of LC natural protein powder for a more 'bready' texture
    -Use a flavored (such as vanilla) protein powder and add in a tablespoon of LC maple syrup for a sweet roll
    -Add in a scoop of protein powder, plus a tablespoon of room temperature butter, plus a tablespoon of heavy cream
    -For a chocolate version, add in a scoop of chocolate protein powder, a tablespoon of cocoa powder, and a tablespoon of chocolate Da Vinci's syrup

    by the way tried No Oodles (zero net grams carbs, made from yam flour)
    they're definately an 'asian' style noodle, they have no flavor of their own but seem to take on the flavor of whatever you put them in

    DH seemed to enjoy the way it 'bulked up' the soup, more than I did
    I think they're 'ok' but I'm not overwhelmed by them

    Maybe in a stir-fry they'd be better

    Thanks so much for posting the recipe Chrissy. It is pretty much the same as the Low Carb Cloud Bread only that recipe doesn't say you can use mayo in place of the cottage cheese. All I know is the cream cheese method didn't work so I'll have to try it with cottage cheese or mayo.

    My other thought is that I used light cream cheese so that may have screwed it up...but the recipe doesn't say you can't use it.

    I am wondering if you have ever made the Atkins recipe and if so, did you like it?

    Hey Mum,
    sorry, just checking back in here

    no I've never made this personally

    My mom used to make it when she was on Atkins
    I loved them, and she'd have to make two batches

    p.s. having success on SBD, I am down 20 lbs as of this week!~

    Wow Chrissy, that's fabulous good for you! Is your DH on the diet too? It's easier if you have someone doing it with you I think.

    My DH and my brother are also on it and we've all done really well. My sister tried it, but she can't eat eggs so she found it quite difficult to stick with the plan.

    If you want to have a look at my cookbooks, I have one for SB and Weight Watchers and a few other odds and ends that fit the diet if you make a few modifications. I haven't made all of them, but when I find things that fit with the plan, I add them to my cookbook.
