    hiya hun, how much broccolli/cauliflower do you have? Also, what's pickeld cabage like?? is it very vinergary (if that's even a word) or is it sweet? I had my first aam tonight, I had 50g of chicken breast with one asparagus stick and one floret of broccolli, I'm getting hungry thinking about it....(I'd prefer the top 4 too):D

    I love aam

    On days when I am at work I have my meal at lunch time as a salad - I have the "tastes like chicken" variety of quorn seasoned with chilli powder and black pepper either dry fryed in my griddle pan or blasted in the microwave for a bit served with lettuce and cucumber.

    When I am at home I love to have a nice bit of haddock loin - I put this on a bit of tin foil and season with some chilli and black pepper, or last aam I tried some cajun seasoning and another time chopped chives and black pepper, and slice my 2 tblsp of courgettes over the top of the fish. Then lift the sides of the foil and fold them to form a little sealed foil parcel and bake in the oven for about 25mins - delicious.

    Generally I always tend to stick to either fish or quorn on my aam as I am not the biggest fan of tofu and cottage cheese and I will always choose the extra 30g of quorn or fish over the smaller portion of chicken turkey ;)

    My mouth is watering :drool:
    I need to find my booklet for the up to date amounts, but think I may look into something other than the chicken, although I do like it I would like to have a bigger meal :eat: your meals do sound DELICIOUS!!!

    Do you find it hard to get back to ss after aam week? This is something that worries me. It's day one on aam for me and I'm a bit peckish now...maybe coz I'm thinking of food and not much else right now but do you ever have a problem getting back onto ss?

    I hope my existing will power stays with me... you have done sooooo well. xxx

    oooh Ruth, forgot to ask, how much veg do you have, I know it says 2 table spoons but is that heaped or what?? I think they should give weights...I only had one asparagus stick and one broccolli floret with my 50g of chicken, I LOVED it but if I'm allowed more veg then I will have it... was scared of having too much incase I came out of ketosis.

    That's a good question of SJ's. How do you measure lettuce or asparagus etc in tablespoons? Does anyone have weights for the veg? It would be really handy.
    That said it's 4 nad a half weeks until I can add a meal, but still, I like to be prepared :p

    I really used to worry about aam too SJ - all you can do is stick to the weights for the protein and measurements for the veg and do your best to try and resist all other temptation (easier said then done sometimes I know!). As for the measurements for veg it is really down to estimation - I personally go for no more veg than I can fit in the palm of my hand while cupped which I am happy is more or less 2 tablespoons.
