I thought I would have had more by now, but I really didn't want to eat it as often. I think it is because it's no longer off limits to me.

It's what the "intuitive eating" and "normal eating" crowd is preaching for like decades now: make a food a forbidden food and you're going to binge on it/crave it like crazy. Make it an allowed-food you can have whenever you want to and it loses its lure.

I just noticed that your wasabi packets were untouched?! What is sushi/sashimi without wasabi?!?!

I'm weird about wasabi. I only like it with simple sushi like nigiri. In special rolls like this there is already a lot going on (the sauce on the side was eel sauce/chili oil combo) and I don't like the wasabi to compete/overpower the other flavors.

This has become one of my go-to easy meals -- sort of a Mexican chicken casserole (not pictured: fat-free plain Greek yogurt masquerading as sour cream):

Looks interesting. How did you prepare this?

I melted a bit of butter in a nonstick pan and then placed the wrap in, and then cheese on one half. Once the wrap was warm and pliable I folded it in half, heated both side so they were a bit crisp and the cheese was melty. I could have used cooking spray and more interesting/flavorful ingredients. But I'm not in my own kitchen, so limited resources.

How was it?

Gave a mini review on the favorite products thread. It was fine?

It didn't taste like much of anything. If I would have been in my WL phase, I would have been excited to have a Protein item masquerading as a carb. In maintenance I'd probably opt for a real tortilla.

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians out there! 🇨🇦 🦃

Our spread for this evening: Instant Pot turkey breast (then finished in the oven) w/ gravy; cranberry stuffing, mini smashed potatoes with sour cream, and buttered carrots.

My plate: Turkey w/ gravy, 3 potatoes w/ sour cream, carrots: 303 calories. Ate pretty much all of it except 1 potato and 1/2 the carrots (Mr. ate what little leftovers I had, so no after pic).

I used to do that with some ready-made crepe-like pancakes. Since they were not sweet to begin with one could prepare them also in a savory kind of way. Didn't make that in ages for lack of a decent non-dairy cheese substitute.

Snacktime!

Pita chips (cut up a package of Lebanese style pitas, then air fried them), with assorted dips.

I ate 6 chips (equivalent to 1/4 of one pita plus approximately 1 tbsp each of three of the dips: 125 calories

I don’t normally eat bread products (except for cake!), but when I do, it’s almost always in some kind of cracker or chip form...
