Take a minute and scroll through this blog and just look at all of the wonderful food I have prepared and enjoyed over the last 14 days! I ate as much as I wanted, I did not measure any portions. I had dessert every day--I thoroughly enjoyed this food!! And in just 14 days I lost 6 pounds. And this food is not even considered Dr. Fuhrman's "Aggressive Weight Loss Plan." This is considered "Moderate." Ha! I am impressed!! Especially since they are the hard pounds to lose as they are part of the last 10-15 pounds. I weighed 129 this morning and just couldn't be happier. It was the easiest weight I have ever lost! Ok yes, I have had to shop, cook, and clean the kitchen about a million times--but again--I am doing it "the hard way" and there is an easier way! It's called leftovers!! So here is what was on the menu yesterday:
This omelet is really tasty--Haze prepared it and gobbled it all up. He gave it an A. I of course had the Eat Your Greens Smoothie--my favorite breakfast on earth!
Romaine, Spinach Salad with Fruit and Nuts
A+ lunch!! The salad just couldn't be tastier. In the past a salad has always been lettuce and cut up vegetables. And sometimes I get tired of that. So it's nice to be allowed to eat a salad with yummy shredded fruit, currants, nuts--it's a nice change! When you read the Vegetable Burrito recipe it sounds like it will be sort of dull. But surprise! It is ooooooh sooooooo good and satisfying. It's a very simple recipe--and the lime squeeze is a must. I thoroughly enjoyed this meal!!
Veggies and Tofu Ranch Dip
West African Lentil Okra Stew
Haze and I were split on this meal. I loved the stew/ let's just say he did not love the stew. I gave it an "A-" and thought it was savory and yummy! I loved the creamy peanut butter base--loved all of the veggies. I made a few changes. I added half celery juice, some broccoli, and some butternut squash. I omitted the sweet potato. I also added a squeeze of lime when I was eating the stew--I really liked it alot! We were split again on the Tofu Ranch Dip--Haze gave it a "B" and let's just say I did not like it! But I think I will try making it again. Next time I will add less date, and mince everything green with a knife and then stir it in the white base. It was sort of unappetizing looking to me with all of the blended green. But I will try again!!
Yummy Banana-Oat Bars
Mmmmmmm yummy!! I had one shortly after they came out of the oven and it was heavenly! (Then I had another one later!!) You can't even believe how good a date tastes after not eating processed sugar for a few weeks!! I gave them an "A"/ Haze says "B+" There are only like 2 left!!
