Sorry I forgot to add the goat cheese is also mixed with laughing cow cheese to make it softer to spread.

Topic: Healthy pinwheels

Here is my new favourite snack. The "bread" is actually butternut squash, cauliflower, an egg and laughing cow cheese. I spread it on a baking sheet and baked it until it was a bread like consistency. Once cooled I spread some low fat goat cheese. Roll it up and then cut into pinwheels. One or two are a great snack. I've never posted a picture so I'm not sure if it's going to come out ok:)

Hope you like it!

Topic: RE: Food obsession - think about food - and cook constantly!

I spend a lot of time on Pinterest looking at recipes and I love to cook! I don't really nibble when I cook, but I have been known to push food on those with bigger stomachs than I have just to watch them enjoy my creations...

Topic: RE: Food obsession - think about food - and cook constantly!

I am also obsessed with food/baking/cooking/eating, etc. I'm happiest when I'm in the kitchen and spend as much time there as i can. Of course, as you likely know, that can present some problems for post WLS patients. I think that I am a food addict, and IMO food addiction is the worst kind of addiction. When I gave up smoking 40 years ago I simply walked away from it. But you don't need cigarettes to live. ANY of the other prevalent addictions including but not limited to alcohol, drugs, *****graphy, etc. can be walked away from. But with a food addiction the very thing a person is addicted to must be consumed. Every. Single. Day. I don't know if that's any comfort to you but I have to keep that in mind every time I'm either preparing food or actually eating it. I've found it helpful to limit my cooking to high protein, low carb recipes and am continually formulating new healthy recipes. I also try to foster some of my other favorite activities such as hiking, photography, reading, watching interesting documentaries, shopping (though that can also be an addiction) and corresponding with other members of Obesity Help and a few other weight-loss-related web sites. But even with all that, I m sick a lot (complicated kidney transplant) and, 5 years post RNY I've gained 40 pounds. I try hard not to beat myself up over it (I'm STILL 150 pounds less than I was before surgery), but I'm very angry and disappointed that I've let this happen. I'm the only one who can rid myself of the extra weight so I've been immersing myself in researching post WLS weight regain and how to get rid of it. One of the things I've been doing is experimenting with different recipes that conform to my high protein, low carbohydrate eating plan. I will always be obsessed with food. I am a food addict. But planning ahead and experimenting with different foods has kept me from going off the rails. Best of luck. I really do understand what you're saying.

Topic: RE: Cloud bread?

I've had more luck with the Fathead bread version!

If you are Keto/low carb, they are delicious AND they hold up a lot better than the cloud/oopsie/revolution bread version. They don't stick together (or to anything else) and they freeze beautifully!

I didn't love it at first but seems like I've taken an acquired taste to it.
