This is my new favorite meal. I've been making it for a long time, but kind of forgot about it til my friend called and asked me for a recipe. I've been craving it ever since! You can make this as healthy or as fattening as you want, but I chose healthy. One large serving (including 1/2 cup of brown rice cooked with veggie stock and tossed with chili garlic sauce, cilantro and tomatoes) rice) came in under 400 calories, 12 grams of fat, 16 grams protein, 55 g whole food carbs and 8 grams of fiber.
I will be posting the recipe to my recipe testing group.
Many bloggers have been on the steel cut oat bandwagon, so I jumped on as well. I cook up a bunch of oats and have been eating them various ways. I don't have a microwave and sometimes, I don't feel like dirtying up a pan. I came up with this delicious pudding for breakfast yesterday. I think it's my new favorite way to eat them. It reminded me of rice pudding. I took around 1/2 c cold, cooked steel cut oats and tossed it with soy yogurt, flax meal, vanilla, frozen blueberries, stevia, nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom. I let it sit in the fridge for around 1/2 an hour while I took a walk and came back to a delicious breakfast!
Avocado, how I love thee. Definitely one of my favorites foods. I had a serious mexican craving, so I checked my calories for the day and had enough to totally indulge. I used a whole avocado to make this delicious guacamole. Two tortillas dry fried with FYH cheese, refried beans and lots of salsa made a perfect deliver system for the guac! Not pictures was a very large salad with the rest of the guac (thinned out with more lime juice) as dressing.
This is what I ate yesterday. (along with the not pictured very large salad and a couple pieces of fruit)
I can't believe how easy it is to count calories. For so long, I felt it was tedious.. I much preferred weight watchers and their online point tracker. Now I prefer this.
I used Fitday to keep track of my daily calories and log my exercise. It is free. You have the ability to customize foods.
Now, to the weigh in. I lost 1 lb according to my new scale. (the only one I will go by now)
I'm debating on weighing once a month instead of once a week.... time will tell.
