Home > Diet, Food, Recipe > Replacements


One of the ways I’m managing is by changing in increments, by making small replacements.  I don’t give up the entire ritual, I just make one change that I convince myself is fairly small.

Coffee with Byrne’s Half and Half  —-  Coffee, Black.

Mashed Potatoes and Rice —-  Cauliflower, mashed

Potatoes, generally —–  Yams, sparingly.  Admittedly, I’ve not made the jump from French Fries to sweet potato fries

Vegetable, Peanut Oil and Butter —- Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Beer —– Soda Water with a wedge of lime or lemon

Zone Bars —- Larabars

Chocolate —- Figs (?)  It’s better than dirt mixed with water

Maple Cured Bacon —– Applegate’s organic, sugar free bacon.

Prosciutto —- Prosciutto

Candy —- Nuts

Cheese, Crackers and Hummus —- carrots, nuts and dried fruit

Any other ideas for replacing foods?

    I am with you on the coffee and tea (black), though I am off all starchy carbs — no sweet potatoes for me. I won’t give up olive oil, no way now how :), beer, wine, whiskey — now soda water or just water.

    Bacon is now substituted with … bacon. (We all have weaknesses)

    Almonds are my snack of choice.

    I bought bok choy at Whole Foods in Greenwich yesterday yummy. I do lots of sauteed spinach and cabbage (sprinkle a little chili powder, yum).


    I went out to dinner at the Ginger Man in Greenwich yesterday — steak and wilted spinach for me, with soda water. I was disappointed to find that Grey Poupon has added sugar. If Tabasco has sugar then I’m done for. (One side benefit of this diet, is that meals are cheaper, they didn’t charge me for the soda water!)

    I eat too much salt so I’ve cut back on that as much as possible. Squeezing a lime on food tends to make it palatable for me.

    Kashi Go-Lean with skim milk, strawberries or blueberries on top –> 1 cup asparagus cut into small pieces and 8 oz diced salmon both sauteed in olive oil; six egg whites, one yolk cooked in the pan after I plate the salmon and asparagus; 1 cup mixed fruit on the side.

    I work out in the morning, so this is my PWO meal–holds me for about 3-4 hours, which is not bad.
