That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could help you..
Bless your heart....
My husband keeps telling me, you do know that I have to eat after your.
Already feeling bad for eating in front of me...lol.
I told him that I will be fine and find things I can eat. Too bad he won't be jealous of what I am eating in front of him....But, I am ready for a new life, being able to keep up with my Grandkids....ahhh. I just keep reminding myself that...
I have done some baking ...my college kids, live away from home, but within 3 hours,and when we see each other, I always had brownies, and still do make them. No spoon licking here, either. I did wonder if it would be too tempting for me, because I loved brownies, too. Eggface has a chocolate cake that works for me if I do get to feeling the need for something like that. But for me it's just POISON and while bit tempting, I'm with you, seeing others enjoy what I've made, is satisfying. If it becomes not so, I would at this point stop..
Love your version of a sweet apple/caramel treat. Sounds good to me...
My family has been told they are on their own until I can eat normal food, and then they are eating what I eat or fixing it themselves. My husband is a diabetic and changing up his Medifast diet will be good for him. I don't think I will have a problem fixing him some potato or rice to go with our meals. Just not as much as now...
I am so looking forward to these new recipes!..
I must admit....I made 2 apple pies....1 with sugar for everyone, and 1 with splenda for everyone, but that I could trial a small piece from..
I pretty much just ate the apples out of the pie, but it was good. My mother's diabetic so she enjoyed it also..
Now for the good part ( I guess), half of the splenda pie was thrown away.....hubby is afraid to try it...
Vmac: Have you thought about making that pie with the SH caramel syrup and Splenda?..
Wow, I guess I was not alone this weekend. I too got that 'baking bug' so I whipped up some cookies with the grandkids. Then on Sunday we made some monkey bread. Sent it home with them. I then copied/pasted 5 great recipes from Shelly. Went shopping and bought the ingredients to make some goodies for me.
The good news is I too can bake and NOT lick the spoon!.
@Farmgirl- Yes I used to make pies and cookies all of the time for my father in law, who was diabetic. He has since passed away, and I went back to using regular sugar, as the Splenda was kind of more dry. It tasted good, mind you, but it was dry..
I don't even care for sweets like pies, cakes, cookies...I was mostly a full on chocolate bar girl. I think just the thought that I couldn't have it (that's another story), made me want to vent..
(The other story)- I have not dumped once...Everything I have put into my mouth, I have done fine with, (with the exception of eggs, zucchini, and avocado which I could not eat before.
Anyway). I don't think I will dump on sugars, but have yet to stick a piece of candy, cake, pie, cookies, cereal, anything over 9 grams of sugar into my mouth, because I feel that once I see that I won't dump, I will feel free to eat anything once again, and get back into my fatty predictament..
It truly is a head trip, this journey, and my head is headed to bigger and better things..
Like playing with my grandson like weaver..
I have also tried some of eggface's pumpkin goodies. Yum!.
Yay us for taking that fearful step into a better future!! :)..
I found a good site.
