Old Favorites

Yesterday we observed the 2-year anniversary of our Fasting Lifestyle!  Status: 47 pounds lost between us; cholesterol down; triglycerides down; HDL up.  I call those good results!  This is why we will continue to be following the Fast Lifestyle twice a week for the next 2 years and more years after that.  Join us and let me know what your results are.  Let’s celebrate with some old favorites.

Sorry about the formatting errors. I blame the website, since it looks great in my draft and then gets all messed up when I preview it.

 Spray a ramekin with non-stick spray. In a bowl mix the bread, egg, ham, milk, seasonings, and mustard. Stir ingredients together and pour into the ramekin. HINT: you could prep this the night before, cover the ramekin in plastic, and pop it in the ‘fridge for morning.  Bake at 350º for 18 minutes. While it is baking, prep the fruit, brew your beverage, and make your smoothie [or take it from ‘fridge if made last week]. 

Baked Fish with Cheese   270 calories          Another winner from the Fast Diet book.  When we began this lifestyle, we ate our way through the suggested menus.  We have enjoyed this ever since.Fish baked with Cheese6 oz firm white fish fillets such as haddock or tilapia                                                                               1/2 oz cheddar cheese, grated                                                                                                                                3 oz broccoli                                                                                                                                                                  1 oz parsnips, sliced  into coins                                                                                                                               1 cup salad greens                                                                                                                                                            ½ tsp lemon juice                                                                                                                                                           1/2 tsp olive oil                                                                                                                                                                   1/2 tsp low-fat mayonnaise

Heat the oven to 400. Put the fish in an oven-proof dish which has been lightly smeared with olive oil. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Bake for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the broccoli + parsnips. Whisk the juice, oil, and mayo in a salad bowl. Add the lettuce and some fresh or dried herbs. Toss the salad. How easy it is to be healthy!
