    • Hi, jsmith. Don’t fight it! It’s better that you stay in tune with your hunger and satiety signals. If you cut back, be sure not to cut back so much that you’re ravenously hungry in the evening (or worse, in the middle of the night!) or eat so little that it becomes like a crash diet. We recommend to focus on protein and produce, and perhaps cut back a little on the starchy carbohydrates. Be sure to get a total of 5 fruit/vegetable and 3 calcium-rich food/beverage servings each day.

  1. Hi there, is the shredded potato for this recipe cooked or raw please?
    Also, are there any other recipes listed on the site which specifically use the aquafaba itself? They seem to be mostly using the chickpeas themselves. I don’t eat eggs so I’m wondering if I can just whisk up the aquafaba and make a kind of omelette with that?

    • Hi, Laura. We don’t work with calories in this program, but rather with meeting your nutritional needs through nutrients. At the end of each recipe, you will see the exchanges (nutritional units) for each serving. Exchanges have the following nutritional values:
      1 carb exchange = 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 3 grams of protein
      1 protein exchange = 7 grams of protein + up to 5 grams of fat
      1 fat exchange = 5 grams of fat
      1 fruit exchange = 15 grams of carbohydrates
      1 vegetable exchange = 5 grams of carbohydrates + up to 2 grams of protein
      1 sweet exchange = up to 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 5 grams of fat
      1 free exchange = up to 5 grams of carbohydrates or up to 2 grams of protein or fat

      • Hi, Grace. You can see your personal allotment by clicking on “Exchange mode” in the toolbar above your menu. You will see exchanges for all food groups per meal, and then at the bottom you will see the totals per day.

  2. Want to understand conversion from this recipe to my menu …

    Exchanges per Serving: 1 Carb, 1 Protein, 1 Fat
    Friday morning, I can have:
    1/2 whole grain muffin
    1 banana
    1/4 cup Hummus
    1/2 oz cashews

    What do I substitute from my breakfast menu?
    Would I eat both hashlette patties?

    • Hi, jilmarc.
      1/4 cup hummus = 2/3 carb + 2/3 protein
      1/2 oz cashews = 1/2 protein + 1 fat
      …so a serving of this recipe (1 hashlette) would replace those two items.

      If you want both at the same meal, you could have them instead of the foods you listed, plus a serving of non-starchy fruit (such as an orange, peach, melon, berries, etc.).

        • Hi, Tanzia. Just use the fully personal version of the Menu Planner menu-building application, so that you can select the specific foods to go into your menu (and avoid the ones that don’t work for you). You can get to the personal area by clicking in the “My Food Choices” icon (an apple) in the toolbar above your menu.
