This recipe is for P2, or if you are on the Mix It Up Experiment, it can be for Stage 1 or 3 (add sour cream) … it’s a variation of the recipe for Taco Salad.
Salads are one of my mainstays while on P2 … they are so portable … don’t need any heating up, and you can make it ahead of time (night before) and throw it in a cooler when you are ready to go.
I have gotten into the habit lately of chopping a lot of salad veggies and […]
When it’s cold, what is better than a cup of soup?
Better yet, a SPICY cup of soup.
It just warms you from the inside out.
Just because you are on P2 does not mean you have to suffer with plain and bland foods. Kick them up a notch (or two) by using spices!
Be careful however, spices do have calories, and when you are dealing with a limited amount of calories during the day, they can add up quite quickly.
Did you know that as long as the serving size listed on a label has less than five calories that the company can legally […]
I wrote an article not to long ago on the value of looking at your potassium numbers in relation to your sodium numbers.
The article leaned toward using the formula contained within during the maintenance phase of your weight control journey. But some people don’t realize that it is advantageous to follow that rule of thumb during your P2 as well.
I have what I call a “Potassium Day” that you can use on P2 that is almost a miracle for helping you get yourself out of a stall, or to use after a night of indulgence […]
I call it a stall buster for P2.
No, not this salad per se, but this is one meal of the Stall Buster Routine.
When in a stall, this is my first line of defense. Now before I describe what the menu is for this stall buster, let me first explain what I consider a stall. Even before that, let’s see what Dr. Simeons considers a stall:
…the weight has been stationary for at least four days without any dietary error having been committed.
In my coaching, I am a little bit more liberal with my […]
Is it possible to be a avocado-holic? If so, I admit that I am powerless over avocados.
But seriously folks. What a wonderful piece of perfection an avocado is. It is my mainstay in the high fat diet. And when they are 10 for $10 at my local grocery store, well then, it’s time to fiddle with perfection!
Two qualities of avocados that I adore: high in potassium and lots of fiber!
This recipe is my mainstay on the high fat diet. I have this available whenever avocados are in season. LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe because in actuality, you can […]
Yum! This is normally a side dish in Hawaii, and it’s usually made with fresh raw salmon that you salt yourself for a few hours. However, I needed to have a recipe that would come close for P2, and this does the trick!
Now before you knock my block off, I know that salmon is not a protocol legal food. However, I have suggested it to members of Boot Camp and my clients over the years without any ill effects.
In fact, the can of Wild Pink Salmon that I often choose (Bumble Bee) has these counts:
I think if I was forced, I could live on salmon as my only protein for the rest of my life!
But seriously, when you consider all the benefits that salmon can add to your nutritional goals, it pays to take notice and to add it to your diet weekly.
WILD salmon keeps coming up in all sorts of lists as an important food for all aspects of health. Notice the emphasis on the word WILD – wild-caught fish grow and use their muscles, tissues and fat levels the hard way, fighting for survival of the fittest in oceans […]
There are thousands of recipes for chili on the internet. When you throw into the mix that it has to be legal for P2, the list gets a little limited.
Chili is like salsa, everybody has a different idea on what it should consist of. Some like it mild, some like it past hot. Some like white sauce, some like red. Some like it full of spice, some not so much.
Chicken Chili is no exception.
This is a very basic recipe that you can expound upon to suit your own tastes. The one big difference about this recipe is […]
