Whats BYOC?!


  1. Bring Your Own Craziness. Every Friday Drazil posts 5 questions and you can choose to answer them in your own blog. I haven't done it yet but you will see a lot of BYOC!

  2. Thanks! i had no idea what was going on.... and i was like 'ohhh i wanna join the fun!' :)

  3. lol Hiya
    So Kerri answered the BYOC question: you're all sussed now.
    I saw your question about what I eat now? Hmm. What I eat now is pretty much anything but in much, much smaller proportions. I do tend to avoid dry chicken though(needs a sauce of some sort or to be mixed through with another recipe) and I can't eat nori rolls anymore either.. big sigh. Other than that, everything is fair game.
    What I did for you was go back into my old posts and have a hunt around for things I used to eat when I was first on solids and for the months after.
    So.... if you go to my archive and find Jan 2010 with these dates: 11, 12, 15, 21, and 22, and back even further to August 7 where I have a recipe for a pancake that is great and full of protein to eat, you should get some idea. I hope these help a little - it was easier than me trying to list everything lol.

    Another thing I ate a lot of in the early days when first on solids was smoked salmon, a poached or fried egg with a bit of sour cream on the side. My nutritionist said I was taking in too much protein (eggs and salmon) at once, but blahh, I loved it and continued to eat it and all was good. I also loved weetbix and cruskits.
    Hope this helps some: I know it can be a confusing time when first starting off. Any more questions, you know where I am and I'm always happy to help and hey, if you're here in Perth, maybe we could meet one day. That would be awesome!! Just email me

  7. Just catching up on your last two postings. I shared your blog with my 17 year old and she thought you were beautiful and so striking. She thought you could carry the beauty mole piercing. I think you could too; if you just go with the stick on kind. :)

    Back to food...I worry about your Drs. advice and not eating...

    I eat six small meals a day and average about 80 grams of protein.

    Breakfast Options: Sugar Free Instant Carnation Breakast/add 6 tbsp. not fat dry milk powder in there and it really pops the protein up
    or a
    Lite Yogurt
    or a
    Protein Bar
    Scrambled Eggs
    Cream of Wheat with skim milk and 6 tbsp. nonfat dry milk powder

    for my morning snack about 10 am, I would have one of the above, that I did not have for breakfast

    Lunch: Tuna with hardboiled egg chopped in or
    ground hamburger with cottage cheese and cheese mixed in

    Afternoon Snack: Cheese Stick or Almonds

    Dinner: Either tuna, ground beef, salmon or 3 potstickers dipped in soy sauce

    Evening snack: Sugar Free pudding cup with Lite Cool Whip

    Eating more frequently keeps me from being as hungry throughout the day. You need to keep your energy up. You are busy! :)

    Have a wonderful weekend!
