I love what we call a GBOF, a giant bowl of food. Each of us who become overweight, get there in different ways. For some it is desserts and others too much snacking. Or maybe it’s fried foods and butter laden vegetables. In my case, I do not snack or eat fried foods, and I almost never eat desserts. I just do not like sweet things. For me, my problem is eating too much of a good thing with a side of wine. My members when I used to work for Weight Watchers would always say, “You shoudn’t be fat!” But as I said, each of us gets overweight in our own way.
So, back to my GBOF. I still eat a lot but I have changed what is in the bowl. Tonight I made my bowl with a lean protein and added a lot of different vegetables-onion, leek, scallion, bell pepper, carrot, celery, snow peas, broccoli, and cabbage. My rice was 1/4 cup white rice and 1/4 cup cauliflower rice. Our stir fry was cooked in 2 teaspoons of oil-1 for me and 1 for John. We used Chinese herbs and spices. It was really good and met my need for a giant bowl of food without doing diet damage.
Now I am working on not going back for seconds!
