This is the collagen I add to my coffee. It dissolves completely, so it is completely invisible in drinks - the only effect is that one tablespoon will add 20 cals, but it's well worth it! Here's a quick write up I found about it, too - I think this stuff is amazing! I've been using it daily for around five months, and the benefits have been phenomenal! My skin/hair/nails are sooo strong - I've had so many comments, even Mr Unobservant whom I live with has noticed and started using it too! There's been other benefits too - the dodgy digestion is getting stronger, and my soon-to-be middle aged joints feel much less creaky. All in all, total awesomeness!

Also, we recently had a talk with MIL regarding her obsessive purchasing of foods for us - and this week she rather proudly presented us with a massive bulk bags of nuts, mixed seeds, and cranberries, instead of the usual chocolates, sweets and frozen processed foods she likes to get us. She's a lovely woman - and my partner is going to be eating a whole load of home-made energy bars in the next few weeks :)

Yup for the Jerk Chicken, I use one of two marinades; Walkerswood or Grace. You can also make it yourself but I've never made it myself since it's really hard to get authentic Jamaican ingredients where I live, like scotch bonnet peppers. Whatever you do avoid the dry "jerk seasoning" or anything that says jamaican styled, those are not even close to what jerk should taste like and the jamaican styled ones are mostly just sugar.

Anywho, I usually just take one jar of the premade seasoning from Walkerswood or Grace and about 2.5lbs of boneless skinless chicken thighs. I apply it liberally to the chicken and let marinate for 24hours in the fridge. If you like chicken with the bone or skin you can use that as well, I just like avoiding those extra calories. You can also use or chicken parts, but I'd recommend against chicken breast since the roasting/bbq process ends up drying it out.

After the chicken has marinated for 24hrs I prepare a roasting pan with aluminum foil and preheat my oven to 400 degrees. Now you want to make sure each chicken has a nice coating of the seasoning otherwise the flesh will burn instead of getting a nice roasted crust.

At this point you place them in the oven and check to see when they've started brown. When one side is browned, flip them over and roast the other side. This usually take 1.5hr to complete with my oven but I'd definitely watch your chicken closely to avoid burning.

Additionally you can barbecue the chicken on the grill, although I've never done it.

For Jamaican Steamed Cabbage I use this recipe since I can't find the scotch bonnet pepper I've never added it. And for some additional ease in making I use 2 bags of H-E-B shredded cabbage and 1 bag of matchstix carrots. I also like to add a lot of black pepper to my cabbage and go a little easy on the water. Otherwise this is a solid recipe and I use it weekly.

Since this seems to be an emotional eating issue, your best bet is to practice mindfulness based stress reduction (meditation) when you get those snack urges. Look up meditation videos on youtube. I have had great success with Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Every time you feel that out of control urge to snack, try 5-10 minutes of meditation first. When you feel quiet inside, you can allow yourself small, portion controlled snacks.

You can get a lot of mileage out of roasted seaweed for low carbs and calories. I like Trader Joe's Wasabi flavor, because the spiciness slows me down. An entire package is 60 calories and no net carbs.

You might also try replacing your coffee and soda (which can be agitating) with something calming, like green tea or holy basil (tulsi) tea, which have calming properties.

Additionally, with any snacks you are already eating, make them as spicy as you can handle and garnish with fresh herbs, green onions, vinegars, mustards, etc. This will help slow you down and appreciate your snack, and feel fancier and less deprived about it. Good luck!

I tend to make a lot of quick and easy microwave dishes:

  • Eggs made with this. Takes 2 minutes @ 80% power for 4 eggs (be sure to break the yolks). They slide right out.
  • Omelets
  • Frozen chicken wings (Foster Farm Hot & Spicy)
  • Frozen meatballs (Farm Rich Original). Great topped with Rao's Marinara and a shredded Italian blend cheese.
  • Spanish "rice"
  • Protein powder bread


  • Simple chili recipe using leftover meats.
  • Egg drop soup (onions, garlic, spices, chicken broth, drizzle in beaten eggs)
  • Veggie/meat/cheese "dump" soup


  • Sheet pan chicken. Any low carb veggies can go underneath. Save the runoff for soups. I do some version of this whenever I get 5 or 6 pounds of chicken pieces that were on sale.

    When I crave something sweet:

  • Breyer's Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream
  • Halo Top or Enlightened Ice Cream
  • Protein Powder mini-cakes
  • Jell-o Black Cherry Sugar Free Cups
  • Root Beer Float (diet A&W root beer and whipped cream or HWC)

ICE CREAM: of course Halo Top is the winner here. But we've also discovered a wonderful way of making tasty popsicles that clock in at less calories and less $$. We use Silk unsweetened cashew milk (25 cals/cup) and add in a wee bit of xanthan gum, stevia or Swerve to taste, and then flavoring. For flavor we use this vanilla cream stevia, or this Watkins caramel extract or this peppermint extract or unsweetened cocoa powder or True Lemon packets or... well you get the idea. Anyway, one popsicle is about 1/3 cup, so the calories are fairly negligible and these are really tasty treats.

PIZZA: Chicken crust pizza is THE BEST. I mean it's better than standard pizza. So damn good.

French fries: make them with jicama instead of potatoes. Jicama have half the calories of potatoes, to start with, and 3x the fiber. 100g of jicama have 4g net carbs/38 cals compared to 100g of potatoes with 14g net carbs/69 cals. Once you deep-fry them the calories will change, lol, but the carbs will not. Jicama tastes quite good raw with a bit of lime juice and salt, so the frying step is optional in my book.

BURGER: Seems like "protein style" is becoming a very common term so I'm able to get my burgers in a lettuce wrap almost everywhere I go. Same with tacos btw. And speaking of jicama, you can slice them really thin and use them as taco shells.

SUSHI: It's really hard to substitute for the rice but... well, no but, I haven't found a good substitute. One of my local places will make sushi for me with thin cucumber strips instead of rice, but it's not nearly the same.

Using lettuce or jicama as "chips" to eat guacamole in Mexican restaurants is a big win. Haven't found a good substitute for rice & beans though.

Chinese restaurants are also a problem, as most of the dishes tend to involve sugary sauces. I've found that I can order them with steamed broccoli instead of rice, so the rice is not an issue usually, but figuring out which sauces aren't sugary is a challenge.

I buy Nature's Hollow sugar free jam. It is my FAVORITE! 100% tastes like regular jam. It looks like they use Xylitol for the sweetener. If you make the sugar free jam, let me know how it turns out. I would like to make my own because it get's a little pricy.

No problem at all :d

> ...but when I'm short on time I think BPC will be a good replacement.

that's exactly when I used it... pro tip get one of those milk forthing whizzing things. Don't have the mess of the blender and does the same thing. Just leave the butter in for a bit to melt before you whizz it and you're good to go!

I'm with you on the exercise. Yoga, C25k and weight training are perpetually on the "start tomorrow" exercise - but I KNOW right now that with my low calorie consumpsion i need to do at least one of those things if I'm to start effectivly losing weight again. Gah. Discipline required!

> I've found that melting some coconut oil and butter with some cocoa powder and shredded coconut and/or chopped nuts, sweetened with stevia is a very low carb option that I can do any time at home. Then I have small pieces during the week to curb the sweet cravings!

That sounds delicious!! I think treats are required for the mental battle. Sure some people swear by total restriction but if it's going to be sustainable I can't do it that way myself. Also, keto has redefined my definition of treat! Low-carb chocolate, raspberries and cream, and definitly that lovely thing you just suggested :D Doughnuts? Ha ;)

Since I don’t like to cook and am very impatient, one of go-to soups is instant. Japanese Osuimono Soup is a flavorful, clear broth with some onion and mushroom bits. Great snack if you are craving some salt or alternative to coffee or tea on a cold day. I bought some from Amazon Nagatanien Matsutake Flavor Osuimono Soup

I'm lucky in that I enjoy drinking just plain cold water, I'll drink it room temp as well, but prefer cold. I keep a Brita water bottle with me at all times (link below), and I'm always thirsty so I get at least 10 cups (8 oz cups) of water most days. Usually more than that, but I stop counting once I hit that mark.

No- his books are reasonably priced. A very funny guy who filmed the first season of the show out of his own home, he just wants to bring "good eats" to the masses.

I order these off of and I love them! La Tortilla Tortillas

u/RaspberryPoppySeed · 2 pointsr/1200isplentyketo

Yep, they are insanely convenient! They are the Rubbermaid ones you found. Everything has it's own place, things clip together really nicely, and I've never had the little containers leak. Only tiny complaint might be that all the little grooves and spaces are kind of a pain to wash by hand, but the pieces are all dishwasher safe.

I think you've got the right brand/line, but this Lunch Blox Salad Kit looks more like what OP has.
