You can adjust as you like to suit your tastes. If you want a sodium free version, leave out the salt. I buy the ingredients from my international market or bulk bins and can make 2 huge containers for far less than one bottle of Trader Joe’s or similar.

โ–ช๏ธ White Sesame Seeds

Original quantities can be found here:

I often will add things like Caraway or Cumin Seeds or if I am down to a little seasoning in the bottom of a bottle – I’ll add that in.

FIRST USE NOTATIONS
This was my first time using this so it will take some fiddling to get it right.ย  The recommended settings in the guide for 8oz Chops is High for 14-16min but they were WAYYYYY overcooked on that setting.ย  In all fairness, they were only 5oz each.

Looking online, I saw several recommendations for either reducing the heat to Medium or reducing the time to 10-12min depending on the thickness of the Chops.ย  (Cook to 140ยฐ)ย  These were pretty thin.ย  Everything overcooked – live and learn!

MEAL HIGHLIGHTS
๐ŸŽ High Point Meals – Since I generally only eat two meals/day, and rarely snack on anything but fruit, I eat a little differently than most people on this plan. Points may be higher than you are used to seeing. I do not use sugar free, fat free, artificially sweetened or highly processed foods as a general rule (FF yogurt is an exception) as they flare up my autoimmune issues. I don’t drink coffee or alcohol so no points needed for that.

My goal is not to have as low point meals as possible…I am developing a sustainable, lifelong way of eating and changing my relationship with food forever… I eat everything on WW ๐Ÿ’œ PURPLE… #eattherainbow

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ As part of my Autoimmune issues, my sense of taste has changed greatly… I need stronger seasonings to taste them – so like with any recipe – develop your own tastes… Omit things, substitute things, add flavors – fear not the #experimentsineating – you never know when you’ll find something incredible!

๐Ÿญ Reducing Points – If you choose to use sugar free/fat free products, your points may be significantly less in certain recipes.

I’m not telling anyone to eat any certain way… Just sharing steps on my own Wellness Adventure….

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ As part of my Autoimmune issues, my sense of taste has changed greatly… I need stronger seasonings to taste them – so like with any recipe – develop your own tastes… Omit things, substitute things, add flavors – fear not the #experimentsineating – you never know when you’ll find something incredible!

๐Ÿญ Reducing Points – If you choose to use sugar free/fat free products, your points may be significantly less in certain recipes.

I’m not telling anyone to eat any certain way… Just sharing steps on my own Wellness Adventure….
