Well, I got word you zapped our thread. Hilarious! Hilarious!
Back many moons ago I got Montazuma's Revenge in Juarez.
It was at that time I got my first wave of eating better.
I ended up with Adelle Davis books, Let's Eat Right! and Lets Cook it Right!
Since then I have been on a constant learning mission.
I now have a much simpler diet.
I eat between 1 and 2 pounds of fresh fruit daily.
Yesterday I had 1 mango, a few blackberries, a bowl of Special K with organic milk, and maybe 1/2 cup almonds or more.
About 2 cups of homemade vegtable soup with some whole grain crackers.
I more or less graze.
I live alone and don't have any body to give me Grumbling looks.

Yes, unfortunately, I did zap the thread. Sometimes I ponder over posts, finally get them just right & they disappear. Is there a draft option that I've missed??

So, BYOB means, Be Your Own Boss, which is another way of saying each of us is the boss over what we eat & drink. Mostly, when I read stuff about diet, it makes me hungry. I never weigh myself, doing that sends me straight to the fridge.

Yet, like you, Shine(?), I've been on a constant learning mission for 4 years, totally dedicated for over a year. My pants are my scales, if they are too tight, my weight isn't right. I've given up wearing baggy clothes & old shoes. I don't wear good clothes to garden, but they fit & they aren't baggy. The clothes, shoes situation is the main reason I had to de-clutter before I started to manage my weight.

First, I determined what kind of 'stuff', snacks, food I like. Crunchy, sweet, salty does is for me. And, I find light crunchy/sweet/salty, like already popped kettlecorn is great! It can be purchased non-popped. If I pop my own, there are times that I just will not do it & then eat something much more fattening, yet less filling.

I almost live on celery, which I use with White Chocolate Peanut Butter, from Peanut Butter & Co., which most WalMart stores carry - it has NO Hydrogenated Oil & NO High Fructose Corn Syrup, 2 tablespoons has 180 calories, and 2 tablespoons will go a very long way & fends off *Hunger Cravings*, which keeps me from bingeing, which was a 12 step + program for me, whew, a tough addition to beat!! The peanut butter also comes in dark chocolate & honey.

There is more to this story, but I have chicken house chores before it gets too late & cold. I'd love to hear others ideas re foods that cure hunger cravings. Later...

I have been trying to remember a recipe I loved when I was young.
I have made this twice now and am some what pleased with this result.
Cracker pie
4 egg whites, separated cold and covered while setting 20 minutes to loose their chill. total calories 68
I freeze the yolks for later.
1/4 t Cream of Tartar
1 cup loosely packed light brown sugar (1/2cup packed) 415 calories
After getting the egg whites room temp, add Cream of Tartar and whip adding brown sugar Until it's all added and forms stuff peaks.
Mix together
1 cup Chopped Pecans, (822 cal.) or walnuts (785 cal.) or almonds (542 cal) and I thought almonds were higher
1 tube crushed whole wheat crackers, approximately 40 crackers= 540 cal or you can use unsalted saltines too, less salt, same calories.
Mix the two together and put in a 9" pie pan, or 12 cupcake pan. Total calories w/pecans, 1847, divide by servings. 12 = 154 ea, 8 pie slices= 231 cal
Bake 30 min at 325º
Top with Land of Lakes light whipping cream at 2T= 15 calories, I usually add at least 30 calories of this.
Salty, sweet and salty, filling and somewhat low cal.
Still testing for the perfect.
Thumbs up

Wow, what a wonderful recipe. I cannot wait to tell my hubby, who does all the cooking. Your recipe is one that we've been searching for, but we never could remember all the ingredients, etc. Some kinda way, we thought it called for another kind of crackers. I tell ya what, I bet he will try it this weekend. Thanks, oh so much!!!

And, Shine, et al, my life has not been my own for a couple of weeks, working in our business, I work for my hubby/son, plus driving my grands, here, there & yon...the only thing any worse will be when they no longer need me, and that time is soon approaching as they will soon be driving themselves.

Thanks so much for your post & the recipe!!!!!!!!

Look for Georgia Cracker Pie.
I saw one recipe for Ritz Crackers
The one I did 40+ years ago was with unsalted saltines.
