I also like that I am able to feed others the same dinner I am having. I have not had to cook anything special for me to eat. Each evening I am required to have protein and veggies, regardless of which phase I am in. My family and guests get the same protein and veggies. If I am required to have fruit or grains for that meal, they get fruit or grains as well. I might make potatoes for others to enjoy with dinner but I am allowed sweet potato on phase 1 and 3 and I prefer sweet potatoes anyway.
I made a pot roast for dinner tonight. I served it with a steamed carrots/snow peas/broccoli mixture. A salad of mixed greens, spinach, scallions and summer squash tossed with a homemade Italian vinaigrette and mashed potatoes. I was able to enjoy all of it except for the potatoes which didn't bother me at all.
I am sharing the pot roast recipe with you. I made sure that all of the ingredients added to the roast were on the Phase 3 master list.
