Recipe Categories

- POSTED ON: Mar 23, 2011


One of my Themes here at DietHobby is that  
we are each individuals and one eating plan doesn’t work for everyone.
There are many different ways-of-eating, food-plans, and diets,
to choose from that we can adapt and fit into our lives.

Some of these diets seem to work better than others,
but all of them work for someone.

Successful dieters vary greatly in their eating styles.
Some eat large meals, others eat small meals.
Some eat three meals, no snacks. Some eat six mini-meals.
Some eat only lunch and dinner. Some eat only dinner.
Some skip dinner. Some eat only snacks.

 Meal timing, meal frequency,
and the amounts and types of food eaten
are all variable factors within the many dieting choices.

When deciding how to Categorize my Recipe Sections,
I took this into consideration, and chose not to break them
into categories like Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Side dishes, Desserts.

For the present, I’ve decided to break them up into the following categories:

  • Mini-Meals very simple or snack type recipes
  • Mealtime  –  main dish or side dish recipes
  • Sweet Tastes dessert type recipes

Here is my new cooking video, which belongs in the Mealtime category.

             SAD, Thanks for the kind words. You made me laugh. It IS a tasty recipe. Remember, PORTION CONTROL is essential here. If you treated this like a pizza and ate the whole thing (8 servings), you'd have about 1700 calories, 248 grams of protein, and a whole lot of fat. Although high protein is good, most women need less than 80 grams of protein in one day, anything more than that just gets converted to glucose...(carbs start out glucose). The body also uses a limited amount of glucose, and the rest is converted to fat. The pupose of calorie counting is to work toward taking in the same (or less) total energy used by our body, to keep from storing that extra as body fat.

This looks delicious! I can't wait to try it. I'm surprised how well it congeals to form a slice you could actually pick up. My kids will love this recipe too!

             Thanks Rebecca. When I first fixed this, it surprised me too. The egg and melted cheese act as a binder for the meat. It is such a simple and easy recipe. My advice is to prepare the recipe exactly the first time. Then if another time you choose to add any veggies, it would need to be a very, very small amount not to change the consistency. Probably not more than just tablespoon or two of chopped onion, or bell pepper, or chopped black olives. Veggies could easily make it too liquid, especially if you added a tablespoon of tomato paste as well. Personally, I think a side salad would be a better choice if you want veggies in your meal.
