I got really sick after a week of EFLF (not related to the diet, I don't think) so I dropped everything. I'm just recovering now. In the meantime I seem to have magically lost about 4 lbs! I've been basically sticking to 3 meals a day, no snacks, so that's probably why.
I did make the coconut crackers, and they were nasty. Super super gross. I didn't much care for the smoothies in the book either (unless I add a lot more fruit). Makes me scared to try any of the other recipes. Has anyone made anything that was actually good?
I wonder if I'd be better off just tweaking stuff I already make. I don't have the energy to do calorie calculations for everything, though.
I'm looking forward to getting back on the wagon, at least to some extent, in the next week or two.
Anyone want to share meal plans? I'm going to make a big batch of baked oatmeal using this recipe for weekday mornings:
I'm also going to make some grain-free almond-parmesan crackers, and some chicken liver pate. Lunches will hopefully be mostly leftovers, or smoothies (my own recipe with more fruit than EFLF calls for, and with spinach and nut butters added). Not sure about dinner. Probably chicken thighs with peanut-coconut sauce, beef and black bean tacos in sprouted corn tortillas with guacamole, red lentil dhal made with bone broth, and I think I might try roasting my first grass-fed beef roast using the EFLF recipe with coconut gravy. Has anyone tried it?
