“Isn’t dieting all about eating salads?! Yuck. Rabbit food.” Sound like anyone you know? Someone who puts off improving their health out of fear of having to eat a steady diet of vegetables? Yes, vegetables and fruits are important components of a balanced eating plan. But the Fasting Lifestyle includes lots of foods. Today, we emphasize menus with good meaty taste.

1 ½ two-oz eggs 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. ¼ oz Jarlsberg cheese salt, pepper, herbs to taste ¼ oz ham [I calculated the fat and calories for this recipe based on left-over roast ham. If you use 3% fat ham, you will lower both those values] 1 and ½ oz applesauce blackish coffee or blackish tea or lemon in hot water 5-6 oz fruit smoothie or green smoothie
Spritz a little non-stick spray in a pan and warm it. Put the ham into the hot sauté pan to warm it briefly, then add the eggs and cheese. Scramble together [or cook like an omelette] until the way you like it. Plate with the fruit, warm your beverage, shake the smoothie. Good.
