    am running low on core-able prepared foods in the house but am even lower on the energy/ability to "deal" scale. will have to do as easy as possible today.

    will make oven fries for lunch since i can never get it prepped and cooked in time for us all to have for dinner.
    dinner will have to be veggies and hummus for me and the kids can have PB&J if i don't get something else made. there's hamburger in the fridge so maybe i can get jeff to make a meatloaf and i'll microwave some baked potatoes. if he does that, i'll have veggies and whatever else i can scrounge up for lunch.

    hopefully tomorrow i'll have the energy to start doing some more cooking. i should also scrounge in the freezer and see if i have any veggie soups or stews in there....

    i'll be back later to report what i actually did. i'm struggling to come up with a plan today.....

    S - either garlic bean soup (not yet made) or hummus and veggies

    okay, did a 1.5 mile walk this morning and decided to follow Quinny's lead from yesterday and make the Core pancake when i got home. i used eggs, oats, banana and soy milk. i made 4 big ones-- jeff & i each had one and there are two left over.

    so....... breakfast- check!!

    now on to lunch soon......

    *sigh*

    not sure what i'm going to do. nathan's bed is in so i will drive down to pick it up. i always have the core pancake as a back-up....

    I don't think I have made core pancakes before but sounds good. I may try that tomorrow. Is there a specific recipe?? Is it still SFT?? So many of my core recipes had to be reevaluated and ended up being 1 point now, so just wondered about this recipe.

    Mickee-- I used 4 eggs, 2 cups of oats, 1 banana, 1/2c of soy milk, dash of vanilla and pumpkin pie spice, plus 1/4tsp each of baking soda and baking powder. I used the immersion blender to puree the mixture and then I misted the pan with oil and fried it up. All Core!!

    Here are a couple more recipes (after Kimberly's post yesterday - I looked up one that has cottage cheese in it - here it is have not tried it:

    1/2 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
    1/4 cup ff cottage cheese
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    2 splenda packets (okay, i used a scant 1/4 cup granular splenda--and i added a few sprinkles of butter buds. the original recipe didn't call for butterbuds, so i'm guessing it would be all right without.)

    place all ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until smooth.

    mist a non-stick skillet (i used a waffle iron) with butter spray pam. (the original recipe called for olive oil, but i didn't want to do that. i think butter flavor is better for pancakes/waffles) add the batter and cook over medium till both sides are brown and the middle is firm.

    I use this one - but like Kimberly - add 1/2 mashed banana and some vanilla extract. I only use one packet of sweetener.


    1/4 cup oatmeal
    1/4 cup cornmeal
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 tsp. baking soda
    4 packets splenda
    1/2 cup ff plain yogurt
    1 egg white

    Makes 2 big pancakes

    Also - just got this recipe - I am going to try it tonight:

    OATMEAL MUFFINS – LK

    Makes 12 Muffins Cal 100 Protein 7g Carbs 19g Fat 1.5g Fiber 3g

    1.5 c oat bran
    1 c uncooked old fashion oats
    1 T baking powder
    ˝ tsp salt
    12 Pk Stevia or sweetener of choice

    6 Egg Whites or 3 eggs
    1 c non fat Greek yogurt or 1 c sk milk
    1/2 c apple sauce & 1 banana or 1 c applesauce or 2 bananas
    1 tsp almond flavoring
    1 tsp banana flavoring
    or other spices & flavorings

    1 c frozen or fresh blue berries or chopped apples or other fruit or nuts.

    Mix dry ingredients together, mix wet ingredients, combine. Add blue berries.
    Spray muffin tin with oil spray and fill 12 cup with batter. Bake at 350 F for 45 min or until golden brown.

    I make this often and keep them in the freezer for grab and go breakfasts. As you can see this is a very adaptable recipe.
    I used only egg whites because I can't eat eggs yolks everyday because of allergies and the yogurt gives it extra protein.

    my favourite kind of meal - no muss fuss or cooking. My kids are perfectly happy to have sandwiches. Maybe i will do the same meal tonight! That reminds me that I have not made a batch of hummus for months - so easy in the processor to make a huge batch

    I remember this one - it is moist and dense, high in protein, in fact, i think I first read about this on a weight lifting site as a power breakfast.

    change of plans-- amazingly, i think that today might be the "best" SFT day for me thus far, even though i'm still pretty far from my vegetarian goal and ultimately getting back on the vegan track.....

    b: oatmeal pancake w/maple syrup (1)
    l: meatloaf w/tomatoes
    s: tootsie roll pop (1)
    d: baked potato w/light sour cream (2)
    s: baby carrots w/hummus (2)

    that's the least amount of WPAs i've used thus far this week and the closest to having entirely core meals. i need to do more meal planning to have bean/grain based entrees so i don't wind up eating meatloaf i don't really want to eat but don't have anything else on hand.....

    I nearly slipped today but managed to catch myself. Day 6 at work tomorrow. I am really tired.

    Ran out of my pre-cooked oat groats for breakfast so I had steel cut oats instead. Did not last nearly as long. I was hungry all day. Tomorrow I will make a green smoothie for breakfast.

    I am off Friday for sure and may be off this weekend.

    You are all doing so well that you inspire me.
