I took me time with my fresh garden salad, pulled my steak off the grill, and had to stuff myself to finish. Here's what I had left.

Ever think of or skip your starchy foods? Cut back?

I would have skipped the salad and had the spud loaded up with butter. But then again, I don't eat salads anyways, never have, never will.

I regularly skip the starch my priorities are protein, then fruits and vegetables, and then carbs. I do make sure I eat some whole grains to support my gut microbiome.

Homemade ranch is only way to go. No store bought ranch.

I’ve skipped the potatoes 2 nights in row. What is wrong with me?

Try a cauliflower and turnip substitute. I had to really cut down on carbs, our friend makes cauliflower and turnup mashed mix that is better and is also lower in calories.

A lot of the calories also come from the added stuff. I usually just add some of my homemade ranch pinto beans to the mash, and with salt and pepper it is good to go.

Anything that advertises itself as being a "Great Value" usually is not. I sure hope that is a stick of genuine butter.

BTW, I routinely replace taters with boudain from Best Buy. I get the smoked version - seems to have better spice in it, but maybe it's just the smoke. Friends from LA have been bringing me batches for years.

Boudain is a complete meal, mystery meat, rice and green stuff.

Haven’t had a baked tater or French fries for months. My body screams for fries.

I couldn't pass up the sweet corn tonight. We ate field corn when I was growing up. We całed them roasting ears.

I like to buy the Hidden Valley powder ranch packet and follow the instructions to make ranch. Sometimes I add an avocado, sometimes I add chipotles......
