Bored with your diet - you are not doing it right!!

Monday, October 08, 2012

My work sent me to the clinic for my work physical. At that time I had been doing Atkins for three weeks. The doctor there told me that she has been doing Atkins for 4 months and after a few weeks she got very bored with it.

Well now I have been following the diet for a 8 full weeks and while I was getting ready to go shopping for week 9 I did not want to eat any of the recipes that were in my family cookbook. The wonderful thing about Atkins is that you can get creative. You have a list of acceptable vegetables so you can mix and match anyway you want with your choice of protein.

Sunday, I dug out one of my husband's favorite kugal recipes. It was a salt and pepper noodle kugal. I made zucchini noodles and made the recipe as it was printed except I used the zucchini instead of pasta. It turned out great and now I have a new recipe for my family cookbook.
