Saint Hubert

How this Fast Diet Lifestyle works: Eat these meals tomorrow. On another day this week, eat the meals from another post.  Eat sensibly the other days of the week.  That’s it.  Simple way to lose weight and be healthier.

Tomorrow, November 3rd, is the feast day of St. Hubert.  According to his legend, he was hunting deer one day in the 7th century A.D. when he espied a stag with a crucifix in his antlers.  This vision was enough to convert the young Frenchman, who went on to become a bishop and a saint.  Deer hunting is a tradition around here and sometimes we are lucky enough to be gifted with some venison, since we don’t hunt.  Mushrooms are commonly found in hunters’ food, so we’ll have some of them, too.

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, toast the sandwich bread, brew your hot beverage. What a treat!
