nicoles The hemp ice creams I found online still seem to be high on the fat content side. There is a Whole Foods, about 80 minutes away from where I live, I'd like to go some time, but just haven't gotten around to it yet.
Oh yes, they definitely are high fat, Dis
, as are the Coconut Milk ice creams. I think of them not as an "on plan" food, but as more of a transition food to get away from dairy towards enjoying frozen bananas, for those who are not ready for the full fat-free experience, but who want to get away from dairy as the highest evil. Or for convincing staunch anti-vegans that it ain't so bad as you think...
I have a confession to make. Up until earlier this week I didn't know what a SNAP meal was. So I've been playing around with that concept the last three days. The fun part has been the lower than normal for me calorie density (I get to eat a lot). I've used CRON-O-Meter to track the meals, and check the caloric intake, which is not something I normally do, but I am experimenting with a slightly different eating pattern. My comfort zone for daily calorie intake seems to be 1,200 - 1,600, and adding the snap meals has stayed within that range. What's strange though is my weight has been trending up. I was up +3 pounds this morning, since last weigh in.Dissolution,
So what are the possibilities;
normal weight fluctuation
larger quantity of food in my digestive track
placebo effect from eating a larger volume of food
reaction to canned tomatoes
calorie intake miscalculation
reaction to canned food
I have *gained* as much 5 pounds in one day from eating large quantities of high-fiber foods, and as much as 6 pounds in a day from eating canned food (from the either the trace sodium or preservatives, I don't know) so I can speak from experience that at least two of the options sound very possible.
SNAP meals are rad, though, and fun to be able to make - and eat!
