No, we are NOT taking a break from our Fasting Lifestyle. But let’s take a moment to step away from the path and look at where we are going. Do you have any goals that you are pursuing? Are they reasonable and attainable? If your goal is to have less body fat and to be more healthy overall, then in my opinion the Fast Diet is the one for you. Eat these [or any others from the Blog Archive] tomorrow, and start on a new path.
Breton Breakfast: 303 calories 14.4 g. fat 4.3 g. fiber 4.7 g. protein 41.7 g Carb PB not GF, but reduced gluten since buckwheat is GF Here is one way to use the crepe batter which we made on October 14 and you stored in the freezer. You need one crepe per serving. Make some extra for a lunch or dinner later this week.
1 crepe 1 two-oz egg 1 oz [3 Tbsp] diced tomatoes 1 Tbsp [1 oz] diced artichoke, canned or frozen 1/4-1/3 tsp curry powder [seafarers brought a lot of spices to Brittany’s ports] 1 and 1/2 oz apple 5-6 oz green smoothie or apple cider blackish tea or coffee or hot water with lemon
Put the vegetables and curry in a small sauce pan with any juice still in the tomatoes and cook uncovered until the veg are soft and the liquid has almost evaporated. HINT: do this the night before to save time at breakfast. If your crepe was cooked previously, warm it a little to take off the chill. Cook the egg by frying it in a lightly-oiled non-stick pan. Spoon the vegetable on the crepe, put the egg on top. Hold briefly, if needed, in a warm oven while you pour the smoothie and warm beverage, and while you slice the fruit.
Smelts, pan-fried 275 calories 7.1 g. fat 32.2 g. protein 15.7 g. carb When Spring is near, the smelts swim up the rivers and into my frying pan!
4 oz smelts, cleaned & boned 1 egg white ½ slice 70-cal whole-grain bread, ground to crumbs salt, pepper, thyme 1 tsp olive oil 4 oz broccoli + cauliflower + carrots
Trim tails and fins from the fish and remove the backbones. Whisk the egg white until frothy. Mix the seasonings with the bread crumbs. Dip the fish in the egg whites, then in the bread crumbs. ‘Pan fry’ in oil in a non-stick skillet until lightly browned and cooked through. Steam/boil the broccoli and season to taste. Plate the vegetables and the fish. Looks good enough to eat, doesn’t it!
