First, it is weeks later and I am still holding at 115.2lbs. It looks like I have finally leveled off. That works for me! Now that doesn't mean I am changing what or how I eat. If I backslide I am positive I will gain it all back. Not to mention I will be eating unhealthy foods again. This is a lifestyle, not a diet remember.
Check out the pancakes I made the other day. For anyone worried that the taste is different I can assure you they tasted great. I added blueberries to one, and raspberries to the other. Add some homemade maple syrup from a friend and it was fabulous. Homemade syrup is less sweet than the sugar filled store bought so the berries make it a perfect balance. (I only ate about half of each pancake) A tip: make up all the batter into smaller pancakes and you can freeze them to warm up in the toaster at a later date.
Because I eat a lot of hard boiled eggs I needed to find a good recipe for them. Sadly it was because I kept over boiling them when left to my own cooking devices. Here is what worked for me: For easy peeling you want to use eggs that are older, 2 weeks are ideal. Use a heavy bottomed pan and make sure the eggs aren't crowded so they don't crack when the water comes to a boil. Put the eggs in the pan with at least an inch of cold water covering them. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cover for 17 minutes. Then remove from the water and put into cold water again and let set for 15 minutes. You will have a hard boiled egg that is easy to peel and NOT overcooked.
