The Inescapable Hole–Part II

If it was not enough to be captivated by the first batch of high protein donuts, I do not blame you. Once you have fallen into the hole of {better for you} donut excellence, you may seldom have the desire to be lifted out by their sugar-laden alternatives. Prepare to fall even harder and faster this time, however, because chocolate and peanut butter have arrived to join in. Enter chapter two of the grand donut-fest…

The Inescapable Hole–Part I

Donuts. There is something about them (especially for those of us with a voracious sweet tooth) that draws us in with a relentless force of confectionary greatness. It is as if they have their own gravitational field that lures us near enough to the point where we cannot turn back after the first…or the second…or the third…until we have obliterated that last crumb in the box of one dozen. It is without a doubt that donuts are the black holes in the universe of pastires.

All cosmic forces aside, however, they do not need to be bad news for the mindful and/or high-volume eaters.

Wrapped Up in a New Idea…Plus a GIVEAWAY!

UPDATE: GIVEAWAY CLOSED

‘Tis the season for all sorts of wrapping. If neatness is not your forte, you are likely still cleaning up all of the crumpled wrapping paper left behind from your holiday gifts. If you live in a part of the world where winter is at its peak, you are probably wrapped in layers upon layers of warm clothing. You might also be wrapped up in achieving your New Year’s resolution, whatever it may be.

If you are anything like me with an insatiable Bottomless Stomach appetite, you are wrapped up in thoughts about food right now. You are thinking about how delicious your last meal was…looking forward to your next one…and figuring out what to do with that darn package of sushi nori that has been sitting in the back of your pantry since goodness knows when.

A Full Week of Full Plates: Tuesday

It is time for day two of my full week of high-volume eating documentation. I would much rather have an entire cake than a small sliver. If you agree, I hope this inspires you to keep your plates full by making food choices that maximize portion size and nutrients for the amount of calories they contain. Believe me; your satisfied belly will thank you.

A Full Week of Full Plates: Monday

I would like to take the opportunity to provide a visual account of my high-volume style of eating. Each day over the next week, I will be posting examples of every meal I prepare to give you an idea of how making choices to get the largest portion size for your macronutrients can result in satisfyingly full plates (and lots of them). It does take some time and effort for food preparation, but it is well worth it. I assure you, when those plates are empty, your stomach will not be. If nothing else, please enjoy the food porn!
