    Cant help you with the tasty meals I just kept mine very plain and simple and added into my soup , it made the soup much tastier.

    If you do a search back on here theres loads of different idea that others have done tho.

    Good luck with AAM.

    So am i

    I'm about to start my first add a meal week and i'm getting really excited..actually went shopping today for the first time in weeks and bought salad, chicken and fish....I was very unconcerned about AAM when i started but my cdc warned me i would be grateful for my bit of chicken when i came to it and how right she was :eek:. So sorry, can't actually help with any recommends but i do't think mine is going to last long enough to worry about flavouring it :D I note garlic, chilli and a little bit of stock is allowed so i might try that with the chicken.Maybe we can update this thread after AAM to see what we came up with:confused:

    Hi Dibs and Mum,

    I put chicken in foil and covered it in pepper and chilli flakes and left it in the oven (covered) for half an hour, it is lovely with brocolli and cauliflower.

    I also had cod one night with veg, nothing fancy.

    On my final evening i had cottage cheese, pickled red cabbage and salad (yum)it was really tasty. I cant wait for my next AAM.

    Hope this helps a little x

    I havent had a AAM week yet but will be watching this thread.

    I also have a question. I intend to add chicken and veg to my oriental chilli soup to make like a thai curry minus the rice obviously. So is it alright to make the soup a bit thicker and can I add fresh corriander?

    All i've really had is steamed cod fish with sprinkled dried parsley and cauliflower (very yum) /steamed chicken breast with Brocolli.

    Thats all i really want. I did think about the cheese but then i really like my cheese and i might want more than i can have. I might try it on my last day.

    Tmrw i might get my chicken breast minced ( so it looks like i am eatin more, lol )and have it with some salad leaves.

    Good luck xx :)

    I've noticed this is an old thread but i have a lovely recipe i tried a couple of days ago:

    Tofu grilled sprinkled with crushed black pepper (otherwise very bland with very little taste),
    Dried fryed some courgette, leek & added pak choi for the last 2 mins,
    Put the veggies in a nice bowl then the cooked tofu on top, sprinked with a little more pepper & a small sprinkle of garlic....

    :eat: Lovely & very filling.

    mmmm, that does sound nice. I think i might try that one too. :D

    Tonight though, i am having chicken breast (steamed) sprinkled with lots of chilli powder (i like chilli food :D) and maybe some sliced cucmbers.

    I only steam my food because its the only thing i am good at, lol, and its quick and easy. I might try grilling soon.

    Happy munching :) xx

    I'm on AAM after being on SS since Jan (changed from LL so this is the first I've eaten) and am using it as the stabilisation plan. Can you eat chilli? All I thought you could eat add was herbs or a little stock and black pepper? I love chilli so would be very pleased if I could add it!!

    Well i use this chilli powder stuff that my mum uses in her curries. I was abit worried about if i could use it or not so i called up my CDC and she that was fine.

    I am not used to eating plain fish, chicken etc because we eat mainly indian cuisine in my house, so i never know what to add to fish/chicken to make it taste better or even how to cook it.

    I would check with your CDC and see what they have to say about the Chillie.

    If i get knocked out of ketosis i know it was the chilli powder, lol.

    Good luck xx :)

    I know this is a little late but you can steam things without a steamer. I know someone who wraps salmon in foil and puts it in the dishwasher!! Never tried it myself though. She swears its the best way!
    You can steam veg in a saucepan. Just sit a sieve above boiling water and cover with a lid or even foil. Did this once when I ran out of tiers on my steamer. Turned out fine.
