I did it. I did it. I did it!!! I ate a vegetable!! I made this pizza. The 'crust' is from cauliflower. I followed the recipe exactly and it was actually good.
I must admit I was quite dubious at first. I've done Atkins enough to have tried the mashed potatoes thing and it still raises the hair on the back of my neck when I think of it. But, I'd made a commitment and was determined to see it through. My commitment waivered as I steamed the cauliflower before grating it. That stuff smells like vomit to me. I really could not imagine liking it. And John wasn't real sure if he wanted to try it either. I was already mentally processing the post about how hard I tried to like it and I was going to try something else again and much to my delight it was good.
It is better warm. I got interrupted in the middle of my second slice and it wasn't quite as good cooled.
Another good thing is that I was satisfied after two slices. The whole thing was maybe 10 inches in diameter. I cut it in 6 slices. I ate two and John even ate one. I'd gotten some watermelon at the store when I got the cauliflower, so I wanted to have room for that. My supper was 2 small slices of pizza and 4 large chunks of watermelon. I felt so strong & healthy after eating that.
On another note, after much soul searching, I have ordered another round of hcg. I really didn't want to. I wanted to do this on my own. Eventually, I'm going to have to. I got a notice of a discount and took that as a sign that I should take advantage of the benefits it gives me.
That and the fact, that I can't squeeze of the 2 pounds I wanted to this week. I'd forgotten about our spring pot luck at work. Although I made my choices very carefully, and got the car back on the road as soon as the meal was over, I still paid the price on the scales. I had a very good eating day today, so I'm expecting a downward tick in the morning.
I"m also reading The End of Overeating by David Kessler. I'll post a review once I've finished it.
Thanks for reading!!
