LCRN Topic of the Month for October 2004

Will Halloween Treats Trick You Out of Your Low-Carb Lifestyle?

From Co-Editor Wendy L

A few weeks ago I brought a large bag of candy home from the store. It contained individual packages of Reece's Peanut Butter Cups, Malted Milk Balls, Hershey Bars and Kit Kat candy bars. I put the bag in the cupboard, way at the back (out of sight, out of mind) and told the family the candy was for trick-or-treat. "Don't touch it", I said. "Leave it alone".

Two days later I came home to find the open bag on the kitchen table and followed the trail of empty candy wrappers to the teenager draped across the living room chair. "Whaaat?" she mumbles around a mouth full of chocolate, as I stand silent in front of her. I just shook my head and walked back to the kitchen. I poured the candy from the bag into a bowl. The orange wrappers looked so pretty against the dark candy bar wrappers!

These candy wrappers could talk: "Only one, you can eat ONE and that won't hurt." "Go ahead and eat ONE - you can exercise tomorrow." "Look at me, aren't I pretty, and I'm going to taste so good!" Between the candy and the little voice in my head it was very hard not to tear the wrapping off of a Hershey bar and cram it into my mouth. Resolutely, I snapped the lid on the bowl and back into the cupboard it went.

I knew what would happen if I gave in and ate one candy bar. I wouldn't be able to stop at one - I would eat three or four, reasoning with myself that it took five or six to equal a regular sized candy bar and I was being "good" by not eating an entire regular candy bar. I also knew what would happen if I gave in and ate the candy - my blood sugar would spike, a short time later I would be sleepy and lethargic and I would feel sick.

The sugar cravings would start and the little voice would tell me that I had already blown my diet and I might as well go ahead and eat another candy bar. I could always exercise the next day or start Induction (again) the next week.

One candy bar would turn into the whole bag, and after eating the whole bag or a large portion of it, I would feel like such a failure I would listen to the little voice that told me an ice cream cone from Dairy Queen wouldn't be near as bad as all the candy I had eaten, and the next grocery store trip would have me buying a bag of potato chips or a small bag of cookies or a package of cupcakes to eat in the car going home. I would do all of this using the argument that it was ok because I would get back on track the next week and start Induction again. Next week could turn into a month or two or three and twenty pounds. Those carb and sugar cravings are powerful, powerful things.

That one small candy bar might taste good when I was eating it but what it would do to me was not a small thing. Why undo all the good done with my low-carb way of eating? I had been watchful of the food I fueled my body with, why feed it poison now? Why allow myself to back slide?

I suddenly realized I had done the wrong thing by bringing the candy into the house in the first place. If it wasn't in the house it wouldn't sit around and call to me: "You can eat just ONE!"

Instead of buying the candy and having it tempt me, I should have taken the time to think. I should have made a plan. There were many things I could give the kids ringing the doorbell Halloween night, and it didn't have to be candy.

Drop small gift items, toys or games into the children's sacks on Halloween. Your local dollar store, arts and crafts store or discount retailer will carry Halloween specific items such as pencils, thumb puppets, pencil toppers, plastic fangs, erasers, spider rings and drinking straws. Kids love small notebooks and stickers and sports trading cards. Oriental Trading is an online retailer that sells many small items in bulk, from cheap to a little pricy, depending on how many treats you need. http://www.orientaltrading.com

Take a look at this sticky eyeball in slime: http://tinyurl.com/3l7wj What young boy wouldn't love this?

If you have a teaching-supply store in the area, go browse. You'll be amazed what you can find there. Do you have a hoard of spare change? Buy $10.00 worth of rolled pennies, open, add to your stash and hand out money.

If Halloween isn't Halloween without a treat you eat, try handing out small boxes of raisins, animal crackers, trail mix or cheese and cracker packages. Individual serving sizes of applesauce, pudding or fruit can be bought, in bulk, at your local warehouse club. If you must buy candy, buy candy you don't like. I realized if I would have brought home red hot jawbreakers or the candy sticks you dip in powder or a large sack of peppermints, I wouldn't have been tempted to eat them because I don't like them. If you are giving away food or candy items, when the trick-or-treaters start winding down give all you have left to the next kid that comes to the door and shut the lights off.

Take the money you would have spent on Halloween treats and treat yourself to a movie. Go to the bookstore and browse the best sellers. Buy a cup of herbal tea in the café and put your feet up while you look at the latest magazine. Many local malls have trick or treating specials and each store hands out candy - get out to the mall and walk for an hour, paying attention to the costumes and enjoying the kids. If you don't want to get out with the crowds, rent a video, pull the blinds and watch it in the dark with a bowl of pork rinds and homemade dip or cheese.

If you have small children that you are taking out to trick-or-treat, you'll be too busy supervising to eat candy. Make it very clear to your children that they are not to eat any candy unless you can look at it first and tell them you'll look at it when you get back home.

Decide on an amount of candy to let your children keep, and either give away the rest or throw it in the trash. If kids today get candy like we used to get candy, they don't need that much and it doesn't need be in the house for weeks. They are going to get sick of it and leave it sit, and you don't want it around to dip into. You don't want to fall off the weekend two weeks after you made it through the Halloween temptations!

If you or your husband works in office where the public traffics in and out, take it to work in a dish and set it out for other people to sample. Put it in plastic food storage bags and drop it off at the local homeless shelter or food kitchen. If you've got children in grade school and the teacher maintains a treasure chest, send a couple of sandwich bags full of candy to school for her. Drop some off at a local nursing home. When all else fails, throw it in the trash. Out of sight, out of mind.

Will Halloween Treats Trick You Out of Your Low-Carb Lifestyle?

From Co-Editor Julie W

October can be the beginning of a long string of slip-ups that carry on through Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years if you're not honest with yourself and prepared.

Since mid September the retailers have been cashing in on temptation with colorful isles of tempting "bite sized" candy for Halloween. As a former Retail Association member of my hometown, I know they have a method behind this madness….more sales…repeat sales. This plot carries through all the way through the first of the year when they will begin to bombard you with weight loss aides and gizmos.

How many of us have used the excuse "buy early while there is a good selection" only to go back several times before Halloween to restock because we've dipped into the reserves a few too many times? After all, it's a holiday that makes buying candy shameless, expected and guilt free isn't it?

To have a successful Halloween and stay low carb it takes two things, be honest with yourself and have a plan. What can you handle? Do you have kids who will be trick or treating and have bags of candy afterwards? What are your options? Here are some ideas.

No Kids at Home:

Don't participate. If you are at a stage in your eating plan when the temptation is just going to be too much, forget Halloween this year. Talk to your spouse and explain truthfully that it's just something you'd rather avoid this year. Enlist their help to make plans to enjoy the evening together. You can turn out the lights and watch a movie by candlelight, or go out for the evening to a film, take a drive, or do some shopping. Perhaps your city has a haunted house? Go check it out! They are fun at any age! Most cities have a time limit for trick or treating so plan something that will last accordingly, usually about three hours.

Wait until the last minute (just hours prior) to get your treats. Get things you don't particularly like so the temptation is low. You'll find you'll save money too as the treats are usually 50% off by this time.

Under buy what you think you will need. If you run out, shut the lights off. If you're getting to the end of the time period and still have quite a bit left, give the rest to the last child who comes to the door, and shut the lights off.

Choose and buy non-food treats. There are tons of Dollar General type stores around with all kinds of cheap, fun little non-food type treats that can be used as give outs for just pennies a piece! Check out eBay! I found these cool glow-in-the-dark bracelets that would thrill the kids:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=38098&item=3757016079&rd=1

Have your spouse hand out the treats. Believe it or not this helps. However if you're like me, you can smell the chocolate (especially when sweetie is dipping in the bowl) so have a low carb bar or two in the freezer for you if you get too tempted. Having it frozen helps because you can suck on it and it lasts a LONG time!

Kids at Home:

If you have kids at home and allow them to trick or treat you will be dealing with a whole new ball game, their candy!

Of course, all of the above is an option but for many of you who won't go there, here are some ideas.

Out of sight, out of mind is important if you think for a minute you could go there. Even if you feel strong now, are there times when stress or boredom would cause you to stray? Be real with yourself and plan ahead for any situation that could cause you to raid the kids candy stash.

Talk to your kids, they will understand if you're honest. They know you don't eat candy for a reason, explain to them how important it is for you to not have access to it if you get stressed etc.

If just knowing there is a bag of candy in your house is going to be too much for you, ask your kids if they would be open to some ideas. You might be surprised how they respond.

Suggest they pick out 5 of their favorites (to be limited to one a day) and donate the rest to the local food pantry or woman's shelter. Talk to them about giving to those in need. Offer to give them a dime for each item them donate and let them go purchase a favorite game or toy they've been wanting.

Put your spouse in charge of their stash, even if it means locking it up if you are afraid you will have a moment and sneak into it.

The important message here is to have a plan. Fail to plan, plan to fail is a wonderful motto to live by. Remember the consequences can be severe for many of you. Blood sugar spikes, craving onset, and days on a roller coaster struggling to get back on plan as a result. Before you know it Thanksgiving will be here, then Christmas and New Years.

The average person gains between 5-13 pounds over the holidays, and it usually begins with Halloween. It can end with planning.

Don't let that be YOU!

Julie

LOW CARB PRODUCT REVIEW OF THE MONTH: OCTOBER, 2004

BREAD AND BREAKFAST, BAKING LOW CARB II by Diana Lee at http://pages.prodigy.net/dls1015/

When I first heard Diana Lee had written "Bread and Breakfast" I had to get it. Knowing how much I loved her first cookbook I knew this would be fantastic too. I was not disappointed.

Breakfasts of eggs get real old after a while. It's one of the most commonly complained about boredom issues low carbers have. I, myself am allergic to eggs. I can have an egg in something, or about the equivalent of one egg a day, but to sit down and eat an omelet or scrambled eggs is not something I can tolerate.

Diana saw the need too, to make breakfast more than ordinary and ho hum. More than just the same old egg something every single day. "Bread and Breakfast" fills the bill for those who are looking to create an endless variety of quick and easy, fiber filled starts to your morning!

Diana includes a huge chapter on Yeast Breads and Rolls. Her instructions include both bread machine variations and instructions on how to adapt the recipes if you are not using a bread machine. Recipes include everything from white and wheat bread to pumpernickel and rye. She includes recipes for dinner rolls, hamburger buns, bismarks, cinnamon rolls, horseshoes, in all kinds of luscious flavors.

Also included is a chapter on Quick Breads like biscuits, shortcakes, muffins, coffeecakes, loafs, crackers, popovers, scones, pizza dough, donuts, fritters, and funnel cakes.

Diana adds recipes for breakfast ideas like pancakes, waffles, custards, French toast, and cereals as well as tempting ideas for quiche, and omelets. Also added are recipes for maple and nut butters, fruit spreads, fillings and frosting.

All in all, 72 pages of ideas to tempt the taste bud, satisfy even your non low carbers and bring delight back to breakfast!

I use "Bread and Breakfast" often and my family has never been disappointed when they see the cookbook out and smell my kitchen! It brings back to our menu some of our old favorites as well as gave me the courage to try things I'd never thought of or dared try before.

Diana's recipes are so easy to follow, consistent in ingredients so that just a few items will create hundreds of different recipes, and pretty much fool proof for cooking challenged people like me.

In my opinion, this is a MUST HAVE to your low carb cookbook collection!

You can pick up your copy at Diana's website, Carbsmart.com or Amazon.com

AUGUST'S LUCKY PRODUCT GIVEAWAY WINNER!

Andrea Frankel from California was August's LCRN Free Giveaway Contest
WINNER!

Andrea won a FREE SAMPLE of THE ULTIMATE FUDGE BROWNIE MIX from
http://www.lowcarbdietchefs.com !

Here is what Andrea had to say about her prize:

"Low Carb Diet Chef's Ultimate Fudge Brownie Mix" is an easy-to-use product that makes 9 delicious cake-style brownies. It is definitely the best low-carb brownie mix I've tried so far, and I've tried an awful lot of them!"

"I am a real chocoholic, and my usual experience with brownie mixes is that you can hardly taste the chocolate. No problem with these, however! They have a luscious, rich chocolaty taste. I noticed on the ingredients list (where they must list them in descending order) that "unsweetened cocoa powders" comes before any of the flour or fiber ingredients, which means they have used plenty of cocoa. The plural makes me suspect they used several high-quality cocoa powders to get the right taste."

"These were not, however, fudgey brownies - they were cake like. They had a tender, moist crumb, and none of the sponginess that LC baked goods are usually plagued with. They held together very well when lifted from the pan. The next time I try this mix (and there will be a next time!), I will use the tip I read regarding Atkins brownie mix, and use a larger pan and lower baking temperature to see if I can make them fudgier. Also, comparing this mix to my "tried and true" non-LC brownie mix, I also suspect that I had too much egg in it (the directions call for 2 medium eggs, but I always buy large or extra-large eggs); I will try using one whole egg plus one yolk, to see if it comes out more fudge-like than cake-like."

LCRN HINTS AND TIPS

Most of you have heard the "hidden carb" rule with heavy cream. Even though it says 0 carbs per serving (1 tablespoon), it is actually 6.6 gms per cup. Check your heavy cream. Are you using Ultra Pasteurized? If you are, chances are YOUR label says it contains 1 gm per serving. That gram per serving is SUGAR, and it actually adds up to 16 grams of carbs per CUP!

LOW CARB ONLINE SUPPORT GROUP/FORUM OF THE MONTH

October's online support group is A Low Carb Support System (better known as ALCSS) at yahoo groups. It is one of THE best sources for information, support, recipes, and tough love when you need it on the net. I am saying that not only because it's my group (Julie) but also because it's true.

ALCSS was first created in 2000, and was revived a year ago by popular demand. We have some of the most knowledgeable low carbers in once place, many whom have branched out with groups of their own but still remain active, dedicated members of ALCSS.

We have an extensive files section jam packed full of recipes of all kinds, for all occasions, tips, Newbie information, and more. We encourage active participation with weekly reminders to share things like rants, positive moments, something new I tried this week, and one days food log to give others menu ideas.

We take pride on getting to know our members on a personal level, sharing in birthdays, anniversaries, laughing and crying together.

We challenge our members to dive deep into challenges they come across, and sponsor group team challenges (one which is starting today) to make overcoming those obstacles fun and educational for the whole group. We even have prizes for the challenge winners!

We don't cater to any one low carb program and have a "if it works, don't change it" mentality when it comes to your choice of low carbing. We do deliver a kick in the pants and tough love when it's not working for you, especially if you seem to be drifting to denial land (smile).

I am blessed to have a team of the BEST moderators on the net to avoid/cut off spammers and flame wars. They also take time out of their busy lives to inspire, challenge, and create topic discussions that are valuable to all our members. Without Tania, Pete, Shelley, Linda, Karen and Jennifer this list would just be ordinary.

We'd like to invite you all to check out this fantastic (and highly active and often chatty) group by clicking on the link below:

READER SUBMITTED Q & A'S

Dave S. writes:

Q: I can't find in the carb counter books any liqueurs, such as Kahlua, or Baileys, or Frangelica. Where can I look for info on this?

A:
Hi Dave,
Unless it's hard liquor, most of these products contain tons of sugar and should be avoided on a low carb plan. Caution should also be used when consuming alcohol, as you will feel the effect MUCH more since your body will turn from fat burning straight to burning the alcohol. Keep in mind that your body will not burn fat while you are drinking and the effects could also cause you to make bad decisions with snack choices.

I wasn't able to find Frangelica anywhere but Baileys has 7.4 carbs per oz.;. Kahlua has 11 grams of carbs per oz. There are tons of options, however. One is to use some of the new flavors of DaVinci Syrup that now carry Kahlua and Irish Cream flavor:

http://www.davincigourmet.com/

I found this recipe on the Lowcarber.org. message board :
1/2 tsp of coffee
mix with a dash of water to dissolve,
then stir in 1 tsp on splenda
then add a cap full of whiskey
then add enough cream for a decent measure
approx 0.9 -1.1 carbs total

The best book I've seen for low carb alcoholic beverages, carb counts etc. is:
"The Low-Carb Bartender: Carb Counts for Beer, Wine, Mixed Drinks and More" (Adams Media, $USD9.95) it's available at online bookshops as well as locally in the US.

NEXT MONTH'S RECIPES

November's RECIPE DIGEST will feature CHICKEN RECIPES. Let's share some GREAT recipes with our readers! Send your favorite CHICKEN recipe in NOW!

We'd LOVE to have you send in your recipes or recipes you've found, tried, or adapted to low-carb. Recipes do NOT have to be YOUR original creation to submit them to the newsletter. However, we do require IF you know the creator, you give them credit when you submit. IF you got the recipe from a website, include the URL to that website, or the poster to a news group. If you don't know or remember where it came from, make note of "source unknown". That way, if the creator lets us know, we can credit them in the next newsletter. Every effort is ALWAYS made to credit recipes to the developers and websites who deserve that credit for providing wonderful variety for us living low carb lives!

So dig out those CHICKEN recipes and send them on to us NOW for the November 29, 2004 edition. Email them to: recipes@lowcarbresource.com
