Your question was: Eating Corn on the cob during Nutrisystem?.
In the e-class today, the Dietitian said that one could occasionally use a small corn on the cob to replace 2 vegetable servings..
1/2 cup kernals = 1 carb or 2 (occasional) veggie servings..
Thanks for that info Pam! Even I didn't know we could occasionally sub in a small ear of corn for 2 vegies You're a wealth of information lady!!..
Thanks - I was hoping I wouldn't have to go thru the season without luscious fresh corn on the cob.
Same here. DH is wanting me to buy some and I hated to miss out...
I just had an ear tonight....fresh from farmer's market and it was heaven! I have over 100 lbs to lose so counted as a carb. I also used some ICBINB. I wrapped the ear (after removing leaves) in wet paper towel and microwaved for 4 minutes. Yummy!..
Pam, what is an e-class? As a newbie, I haven't heard about these but am interested...
The e-classes are held in the Chat Room (the middle one from the Chat Room list) every Monday at noon Pacific time/3PM Eastern time. They are 1/2 hour question/answer sessions with the Dietitian. (There won't be a class next Monday due to the 4th of July holiday.).
You can view transcripts of the e-classes under the Dietitian's Corner here on the Discussion Board. When I first started the program in 2006, I read over 2 years' worth of past e-classes. This really helped me get started right..
You can go to SEARCH and type in e-class, filter under the Dietitian's Corner and you will get the transcripts...
And the black mini poodles..
I've been microwaving two ears of corn with shucks on for five minutes. I wait a couple of minutes before shucking the ears since there is a lot of steam. I use a towel to prevent burning myself- the silks just fall off and it is delicious!..
