    they're not as puffy as I would've liked them to be, I didn't put enough yeast, and I didn't give them enough space to puff up. : (

    Still delicious.
    Wow, that sauce is so colourful! What is it called?

    Last night I made bistro potato gratin (grated parmesan, heavy cream, fresh thyme, fresh flat leaf parsley, cubed potatoes) and it was so good! Very easy to make, too.

    That looks awesome, YWIR!

    I've been eating healthier lately, and I've also been eating some South Beach-friendly stuff for the evening meal, since my roommate's doing that diet in earnest. I just add a few carbs here and there.

    Tonight, we made a SB-friendly Chicken Tikka Masala, and it was AWESOME. Easy, too.

    Tallulah, can you share the recipe??

    I was doing SB then went on full on keto diet. Which absolutely the most fucking disgusting diet you can ever go on. It's really meant for bodybuilders (and epileptics - the epileptics eat a lot better than the body builders who voluntarily subsist on supplements, shakes, cream cheese, and eggs)

    What is your daily carb intake? For keto it's 20g so cooking is rough.

    Oh, to answer the OP, today I made a delicious protein shake. YUUUUUUM.

    Here ya go, CzeCze!

    1 cup FF plain yogurt
    1 tsp lemon juice
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or less if you don't like it too spicy)
    2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper (less for less spice)
    1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger (I used less and powdered)
    3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
    4 long skewers

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 teaspoons paprika
    1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce (no sugar, of course)
    1/4 cup lite coconut milk
    1/4 cup LF cream cheese
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    1 can chickpeas

    In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, black pepper, ginger. Stir in chicken, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
    Preheat a grill for high heat.
    Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade. Grill until juices run clear, about 5 minutes on each side.

    Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic for 1 minute. Season with 2 teaspoons cumin, and paprika. Stir in tomato sauce, coconut milk, and cream cheese. Simmer on low heat until sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Add grilled chicken, and chickpeas. Simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, and garnish with fresh cilantro.

    I used waaaaay less cayenne in the marinade. We grilled the chicken skewers on a George Foreman Grill and they turned out perfect. I forgot to use the fresh cilantro garnish, and we totally had some! I bet it would have been good. Ah, well, leftovers! Served it over jasmine rice, though my roomie ate it sans rice to save on carbs. She's doing South Beach for real, and I'm just kinda piggybacking off her recipes and eating healthy otherwise.

    That keto diet sounds like my worst nightmare! I've never been motivated by a having a good body to the point where I'd eat bland stuff. I don't think I have it in me! I don't count my carbs, since I'm not doing the full South Beach, but I can tell I have lost a few pounds already, since I'm not eating junk anymore.

    What is SB-friendly? From Cze's post, am I to understand this is a low carb thing?

    Interest piqued.

    It would be okay for people who are doing the South Beach Diet, Phase 2, to eat.

    The first phase of South Beach is very low carb, but only lasts two weeks. After that, you can start phasing in things like brown rice and fruit and quinoa and stuff like that.
