Gourmet DIY The Fairy Tale Diet Way 1 of 5

 

I do not like thee, Doctor Fell,
The reason why, I just must tell;
The basic food groups you did sell!

Now I’m fat and don’t feel well,
I do not like thee, Doctor Fell.

Can you relate to that poem?  Each of us must find whatever works for us.  We learned to do a little research and started to follow our own created diet which is a bit Atkins, South Beach, no/low carb, no/low sugar, vitamin supplemented and even includes a fabulous pasta noodle that has no calories and no carbs, called The Fairy Tale Diet!  

We took note of what Mother Goose, the Grimm’s Brothers, and other childhood poems tried to sell us over the centuries about our diet.  This five-post series will give you an overview of the finer points to how our diet came from concept to reality and works for us and it can work for you, too, without hunger or cheating! 

We noticed two points of concern.  The brainwashing we have had since childhood and the guilt always associated with breaking a ‘normal diet’.  Lets work backwards for a moment.  The oxymoron ‘normal diet’ just gets me.  If we were normal we would not need to diet… and because every diet I had ever tried before seemed just like every other… well, you get it! So, then we learn that if we cut calorie intake for more than five days our body shuts down and our metabolism goes wacky.  That is where I got this fab idea, on five off two.  We reduce our intake for five consecutive days… and break the cycle for the next two days.  Then we start all over again!  It is so simple!  Life style change for the entire family, not just for one or two members!  This is a self-leveling program… You will only lose the weight you need to lose. There is no future maintenance program… this is the entire program!  Start to finish, from now to forever… young and old, fat or skinny, from this day forward for as long as you all shall live! On five off two!  The Fairy Tale Diet!  With the selection of high vitamin and mineral content, minus the rich caloric levels, we found enough of a variety to satisfy any gourmet’s delicate nature. If you cook, and feel creative… there are unlimited directions you can take this program using just what we lay out.

What if you work split days off… or a special occasion falls smack in the middle of your five days on the program? Fine.  So what?  How long did it take you to get in this condition… and how much longer did it take you, after you finally tried everything else, before trying this program? This is a race that will take a long time to win, if you go lame (in the head) or toss a shoe, get back on the horse!  You did not hurt a thing by falling off schedule one or two days. As long as in the over all scheme of things you really make the effort to play by the rules… you will win the race!

To address guilt:  there is none!  In your two days off… indulge your cravings and then start over when the five days on begin again, because you have to, in order to reset your metabolism!  Too simple!

We then address the teachings of your youth.

Our first clue that poems, rhymes, stories and tales that children learn make a lasting impression came from asking adult friends which ones they remembered.  Most of them related to poor eating habits and almost every person was obese.

Those that loved pasta did not remember the following poem:  

 Hey, Hey the old man yelled,

While he was eating noodles,

“Don’t eat wheat or processed meat”,

as he drew sweet yam doodles.

He said a mouthful about eating gluten-free and nitrate rich, hormone injected meats as he drew Glucomannan yam doodles.

So…we have included these wonderful zero calorie, zero carb, zero fat Miracle Noodles into our menus as a staple. These noodles come in so many shapes sizes and styles and do not need to be refrigerated or even cooked!  The perfect pasta for the person that burns water or needs a delicious, nutritious meal on the table in less than five minutes!

They leave us feeling full and satisfied for hours.  Pasta finally has no guilt … these can even be auto shipped!

Then from the nursery rhymes we became more convinced than ever that we needed to cut out refined sugar and processed flour.  That brings us to Polly and Sukey first. 

These two sisters taught us that teas are good.  There are herb teas that can help raise our immune system while supporting good colon function. When certain teas, like hibiscus, are combined with certain foods that same full and satisfied feeling makes you look forward to tea time.  For a mid-day snack we use and suggest any Stevia, Splendex or Splenda sweetened hibiscus tea, with a slice of the delicious tasting Julian Bakery Carb Smart Bread (2 carbs per slice).  We only suggest you use this bread, also recommended by Dr. Rosedale.

 Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on;
We’ll all have tea.

Blow the fire and make the toast,
Put the muffins on to roast,
Blow the fire and make the toast,
We’ll all have tea.

Sukey, take it off again,
Sukey, take it off again,
Sukey, take it off again,
They’ve all gone away.

   Sugars and starches break down in our systems to give us immediate energy.  If, or should we say, when, we consume more that our body needs on a daily basis the excess is stored for future use as ‘FAT’.  ‘More’ equates to more than 20 total trans carbs.  Parents work hard to earn the grocery money and want to see that their kids do not go hungry.  ‘Clean you plate’ is heard at every dinner table. Carbs and sugars are pushed on the public on all sides, which makes Americans ‘FATTER’ than folks anywhere else on earth.  Adults should be ‘cleaning up their acts’ in regards to what they are saying, doing, and silently expressing when it comes to food consumption! 

 Monkey see – Monkey do!

Mommy, make me fat like you!

Ignorantly, parents and teachers still recite ‘FAT MAKER POEMS’ to our young, unaware that they are reinforcing the brainwashing. Those poems are the direct opposite of what we should be doing and not at all what our ‘FAIRY TALE DIET’ supports.  

 I bet you can recite this next one in your sleep. Lol.

 I Scream,
You scream,
We all scream,
For ICE CREAM!

(Look for Bryers Carb Smart … yum!)

I will be posting delicious, icies and slushies, and frozen yogurt dishes as soon as the weather starts to warm!  We all crave sweets whether summer or winter, they just don’t have to be filled with carbs!!  That is why I have posted several of late, to get us through the holidays.

Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!
One a penny, two a penny,
Hot cross buns!

If you have no daughters,
Give them to your sons!
One a penny, two a penny,
Hot cross buns!

Is this poem about buying your child’s affection, no matter the cost or that no matter your child’s sex you can win them over with sweets.. or … what? Is it better to have fat children than healthy ones? 

King Boggen, he built a fine new hall;
Pastry and pie crust, that was the wall;
The windows were made of black pudding and white,
Roofed with pancakes — you never saw the like.

(Did he eat himself out of house and home or was he so overweight already that they just surrounded him with whatever he wanted?)

How many of us remember jumping rope to this poem?

I once was a pretty little Dutch girl,
As pretty as I could be.
And all the boys in the neighborhood
Went crazy over me!

I baked a sweet Apple Dutch pie,
As sweet as it could be.
Now all the boys in the neighborhood
Call me Two Ton Tess-ie!

(Pretty is as pretty does… or does without!)

Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner,
Eating a mincemeat pie.
He stuck in his thumb
And pulled out a plum,
And said, “What a good boy am I!”

First of all, when a child is sitting in the corner he is there either because he is being punished or he is a recluse.  He was showing off by not using his serving utensils, was playing with his food, and he was a braggart…all things considered therefore, he was NOT a good boy. 

(If he ate the entire mincemeat pie all by himself, I guess you could say he was good… good and FAT!)

By the way… who ever bakes plums in mincemeat pies?

Georgie Porgy ate puddin’ and pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry.

(It’s a crying shame that most girls’ don’t like overweight boys & visa versa!)

Pat a cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man,
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Roll it, and prick it, and mark it with a “B”
And put it in the oven for Baby and me!

(Why would a good parent feed their baby carbs?

 

What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice,
And everything nice,
That’s what little girls are made of.

(Sugar filled girls grow up to be obese women!)

 

Jack Sprat could eat no fat,
His wife could eat no lean,
And so betwixt the two of them
They licked the platter clean.

(Enough said on this one!)

.  The last one… Little Red Riding Hood, almost lost her life just to take a basket full of goodies through the woods to Grandma. And who in the world would want to give carbs to a bedridden, sickly, a senior citizen.  A kind and sweet heart does not mean that one should cause a potential dietary health risk to a sedentary, single, recluse.

What do the nursery rhymes and fairy tales teach us?  We accept concepts and ideas about people, foods, religions, and races… on what we hear repeatedly from those in power.

Now, we want to empower you by giving you information that can alter your life and those around you, for generations, if you are willing to step out from the crowd.  

We will not make the decisions for you!  You have to be the one to fill out your shopping list, do the shopping, prepare the dishes, and stick to your guns. We are not the Diet Cops!  The Fairy Tale Diet Menus are to be created by you.  That is part of the magic. They are based on easy to get & eat foods that are packed with multiple nutrients to help you stay healthy.  There are five items crucial to this program that may only be purchased online, the links will be provided.

At Granny Peck Said  we offer the complete Fairy Tale Diet Manual that comes with a beginner cookbook, shopping list and menu planner for only $10 each or in Ebook for $5 each with recipes for each category of food covered in this five-part post. There are several other topics available also. Make no mistake… first and foremost we invite you to take advantage of all of our FREE RECIPES created just for the Fairy Tale Diet that I include at the bottom of every post, right here at this blog. Please feel free to link to or copy and share them.

Many folks who have given up dream of a potion or pill that has everything you need for perfect health and weight loss. They would not like it much … without the satisfying flavors we are addicted to! We all know that no such pill exists, yet.  There is a solution — something that promotes health and healing, wellness, weight control and tastes good, too. The children that wandered in the desert for eighty years were provided with manna food that fell from the heavens.  It sustained them, nourished them and more. During the times slavery was around and for all those incarcerated, it was up to ‘THE MAN’ to provide your every meal.  Today you choose what to eat.  As they say… you are what you eat.  We have done the research. 

Further on in this five-part series you will learn of the hard-working “manna foods” that give you multiple disease-fighting nutrients that satisfy your hunger.  You can enjoy plenty of food without pouring on the calories, and these are mega-simple to include in everyday meals. What good is manna food that is hard to find, difficult to prepare, and the kids won’t eat?

Eaten as your everyday, happily ever after, regular diet, these foods will give you all the nutrients missing from most American diets. We Americans need to eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.  That is no fairy tale!

Even the most acclaimed experts would quickly point out that our micro list of manna foods by no means includes all the nutritious foods that could be part of a healthy diet.  They have however praised us for the simplicity of execution and success in weight loss and maintenance resulting from this all-in-one diet. Please don’t forget that portion size matters, even when it comes to healthy foods. You will take more chances when eating simply prepared vegetables, but you must take care to eat other mega foods in sensible portions. A lot of foods like nuts are very nutrient rich, however, if you overeat them you will just be packing on pounds, (unless you only eat the delicious peanut butter we suggest) otherwise you will defeat your purpose! Here are the first few foods for (on five off two) 5 days a week:

    •  Eggs make our list because they are nutritious, versatile, economical, and a great way to fill up on quality protein.  If you are Vegan, omit them.  Most studies show that if you eat eggs at breakfast daily, you may eat fewer calories during the day and lose weight without appreciably affecting cholesterol levels. Eggs also contain 12 vitamins and minerals, including choline, which is good for brain development and memory. Enjoy no more than two of them a day, at any meal, boiled, fried, poached, scrambled, or hard-cooked as a portable snack or sandwich. (Use Julian Bakery Bread).
  •  Nuts have gotten such a bad rap because of their high fat content. However, their protein, heart-healthy fats, high fiber, and antioxidant content earn them a place on our list but only if they are consumed as Walden Farms Peanut Spread. That is the key to enjoying nuts. Even though all nuts are healthful in small doses, and studies show they can help lower cholesterol levels and promote weight loss.  By eating Walden Farms Peanut Spread, an ounce a day, will help fill you up. Use it to add flavor to salads, side dishes, baked goods, cereals, and entrees or on slices of apples or sticks of celery. It taste great alone, too, a spoonful at a time. Try putting together your own “low-calorie pack” of peanuts spread with veggies, berries or yogurt for easy and portable snacks.

Share a simple but delicious sandwich at lunch that will knock your socks off.  This free recipe serves 2. Our Egg Salad is just Nuts! LOL.

INGREDIENTS:

4 eggs
1 1/2 T Walden Farms Miracle Mayo
1/2 T Walden Farms Peanut Butter (just enough to barely taste)

PREPARATION:

Boil eggs for 15 minutes. Peel eggs and mash into medium bowl. Add mayo and peanut butter. Best served on Julian Bakery Smart Carb bread toasted or as a dip for veggie sticks.
