Totally Yummy, Why Didnt I Ever Try This Before?



Recommended Posts

I have had a deep and unrequited yearning for a really good toasted cheese sandwich for the entire seven years I've been banded. I dream about them. I've made many, taken a bite and its just failed to live up to expectation, I think its that toasted bread, any bread, although i can eat it, really makes me feel nauseous - I think its the yeasty taste.

Today I tried making toasted cheese (good vintage cheddar), spinach, Tomato and ham on rice cakes! And it was DIVINE! I just put it into the sandwich press like a sandwich. The outer was crispy and warm but didnt take over the flavour of the filling. They're small, so your sandwich is small, and they've got hardly any calories. Even on maintenance, I balk at the calories of a sandwich for a meal - it nearly always comes out at 400 or more, which I just wouldnt eat in one sitting for lunch.< /p>

That sounds good. Can you link to what you mean by ricecakes? The things I'm picturing are large and I cant imagine them working well in a sandwich press.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
