We don’t need to limit ourselves to bland rabbit food while we lose weight. Let’s have some flavor in our meals! This is what the Fasting Lifestyle is all about: good, flavorful, filling food with limited calories, low fat, and low carbs. Sometimes I look forward to Fast Days, just for the flavors.

3 small eggs of which you will use 1 ½ eggs per person HINT: If you are serving one person, crack three 2-oz eggs into a small bowl or glass measuring cup. Whip up those eggs and pour half of their volume into a jar with a lid and put it in the ‘fridge for next week.                                                                                                                                                                           1 oz mushrooms, chopped                                                                                                                                                  ½ oz ham [from a roast; if you use 3% ham from deli, the fat will be reduced!]                                                     ½ cup raspberries  OR  2 oz applesauce, unsweetened                                                                   blackish coffee or tea or lemon with hot water                                                                                            5-6 oz green or fruit smoothie or natural apple cider.

Chop the ham and mushrooms and combine. HINT: I did this the night before. Heat a cast iron or non-stick pan and spritz it with oil or cooking spray. Add the ham/mushroom combo and stir to heat and cook the mushrooms, if raw. Whisk the eggs and pour into the pan, stirring to distribute the ham/mushrooms. Cook to your favorite degree of doneness. Dish up the fruit, brew your hot beverage, and pour the smoothie. What a treat!

Prepare all the vegetables, and put them in a saucepan. Simmer, covered, until cooked through. If watery, remove lid and continue to simmer. Add oregano, salt and pepper to taste. You could  use red pepper flakes if you like it spicier.  Toss in the chickpeas, and keep warm. Prepare the brown rice or couscous and place it on one side of the plate. Spoon 2 cups of the vegetables next to the couscous. Top with cheese and tuck into it!
