My best recipes combine my favorite foods, sweet potatoes, turkey, & okra. I am definitely not a purist who only eats vegetables, fruits or meats on there own. I like to combine these in meals to get all my essential nutrients in one meal. Having to follow a 1,560 Calorie diet for years makes it much easier to stick to cooking this way. I have only lost a few pounds this year which is a bit disappointing. I still need to lose another 40-50 lbs despite having lost 40-45 lbs over the last few years. It makes it difficult when I do not have a Thyroid and have to rely on taking Thyroid Replacement Hormone for life since my Total Thyroidectmy Surgery January of 1996 for Papillary/Follicular Thyroid Cancer.
