News Flash: I am at a point now that if I lose any more pounds, I will be dangerously under-weight! Never thought I’d say that. Husband is also at unheard of low weight. I owe this to the FAST Lifestyle and to the Green Smoothies every day. We eat well and we eat enough to satisfy.
The Plant-Based Diet is ongoing, which my Husband follows daily. I eat right along with him, but will eat ham or turkey sandwiches daily for lunch to get an extra 200 calories into my diet. Husband also eats lunch, which is plant-based. Otherwise the menu consists of the following:
Sunday breakfast: cornmeal pancakes with maple syrup and meatless sausage; yeast bread made with white whole-wheat flour/unbleached flour; along with Green Smoothie and cafe au lait. dinner: a low-meat meal such as Pizza with chicken garnish; beef kabobs with brown rice pilaf; Eggplant casserole; a Greek recipe for squash and green vegetable pie.
Monday breakfast: Fast meals as advertised dinner: Fast meals as posted
Tuesday breakfast: whole-grain muffins or toast with meatless bacon; along with Green Smoothie and cafe au lait. dinner: Veggie Burgers on Sandwich-Thins; bruschetta on Naan bread; chili non carne; stuffed zucchini; chicken couscous; rumbledeethumps; all with lots of vegetables on the side. Complementary wines are served.
Wednesday breakfast: Whole grain cereal with banana or canned peaches — I have mine with cow’s milk, Husband has his with almond milk; along with Green Smoothie and cafe au lait. dinner: whole-grain pasta with tomato sauce and meatless sausage; tortellini and mixed vegetable sauce; quiona elbows and non-dairy cheese [‘Mac & Cheese’] with tomato sauce; whole-wheat spaghetti with meatless sausage & tomato sauce; spaghetti squash/whole-grain spaghetti with sauce; all served with green beans or other cooked vegetables. Complementary wines are served.

Friday breakfast: whole-grain muffins or toast with meatless sausage; along with Green Smoothie and cafe au lait. dinner: crab cakes; fish cakes; Indian vegetables with fish with Naan bread; 3 oz baked fish; all served with cooked vegetables and potatoes or brown rice pilaf. Complementary wines are served.
Saturday breakfast: Whole grain cereal with banana or canned peaches — I have mine with cow’s milk, husband has his with almond milk; along with Green Smoothie and cafe au lait. dinner: pizza on home-made crust which is 1/2 white whole wheat flour and 1/2 unbleached flour. toppings vary but the ‘cheese’ is non-milk for Husband, regular mozzarella for me. Complementary wines are served. NB: for some reason I always weigh less on Sunday than I did on Saturday.
