There's nothing on this earth like a good quality peanut butter. I also <3 cashew butter, and hazelnut butter. Yum, yum, yum!

I imagine that you must be discovering all sorts of kick-ass recipes since you've been losing weight. I know I did. Once I figured out portion-control, I actually started making MUCH nicer food than before when I was overweight. You want some RSS feeds? I've got a great collection of online recipe sources.
This is Camelyn's (Karen), btw:

Wow, thanks for the link. The Asian Beef Sandwich with Ginger Wasabi Mayo has my mouth watering, although I would probably use a small wrap rather than the bread. :licklips:

Since my op my taste in food has really changed. Meat must be very lean and tender, I'm nuts about fresh fish, I love lightly steamed or raw fresh vegs and fruit and bread and potatoes have almost disappeared from my diet as I prefer rice or couscous. I eat wraps rather than sandwiches. French fries hardly ever touch my lips, I prefer oven baked wedges, but I do like roast potatoes and mash, just not a lot of them. Usually just a couple of small roasties or a tablespoon of mash is enough to satisfy me.

I rarely eat pastry because it just tastes too fatty and fried foods are totally out, but I will happilly stuff myself silly on a fresh ripe pineapple.
My favourite foods run very similar to you. Here's a couple of my favourite foodie sites:

I love big flavoursome salads w/ lots of yummy things like cranberries, (light) home-made croutons, nuts, etc, etc, like this Strawberry saganaki salad), or this Wild rice w/ mushroom salad. Also a fan of slow-cooked meat - things like the Orange pork ragout, the Braised lemon chicken w/ sage, or the Swiss steak. Morrocon-style is awesome as well: Apricot lamb.

Ooh, and the Vege casserole, or the Pancetta parmesan lentils.

You might also like the Cod stew, or the Fire-spiced prawns w/ pineapple.

These recipes make great left-overs, and apart from the salads, they freeze well, so you can portion-control. :)

Recipezaar is good to find recipes & to figure out the calorie break-down.
