Day #0007 (Sat., Jan. 7, 2023) – Homemade Poutine!

2023-01-07 - HomeMade PoutineI’m down again today!  The scale said that I weighed 339.7 lbs., which is the first time that I’ve been below 340 lbs.!  I’ve lost 1.3 lbs. since yesterday, and 7.9 lbs. since I started the diet last Sunday.

I thought I would try something a bit different today.  I’m always looking for new sauces and dressings as such since they can really help to make just plain old potatoes so much better.  I found this vegan gravy on Amazon that I thought I would give a try.  I combined this with some “air fryer” fries, and nutritional yeast to come up with a homemade version of poutine (see photo to the right).  Pretty good overall, but next time I would cook the fries a bit longer and make sure to wash the starch off the freshly cut potatoes.  I think the starch on the potatoes is preventing them from having that great “crunch” that I love so much.

So, in terms of my eating plan today, I had:

  • Potato and corn cake in the frying pan.  This frying pan was a bit sticky for some reason, so the pancake didn’t come out as well as I had hoped.
  • Grapes for dessert.
  • Two low-cal burrito wraps.  The contents were potatoes, kale, homemade hummus, and hot sauce.
  • For dinner this evening I had the poutine that I mentioned earlier in this article (see photo to the right).
  • A mug of coffee with the remainder of the “oat milk” that I bought the other day.

Let’s see what the scale says tomorrow morning.
