Happy Birthday

Tomorrow will be my birthday!  If I say so myself, I’m doing pretty well for my age.  I’m especially pleased with my weight and overall good health. Genetics plays some part but I think that the Fasting Lifestyle deserves some of the credit. Join me in celebrating the start of another healthy year.

Put the scallions and parsley into a heat-proof ramekin. Microwave for 30 seconds. Add the salmon. HINT: I did this the night before. Beat the goat cheese and egg together until the cheese breaks up into tiny lumps. Pour into ramekin and stir all together to mix. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes, depending on how you like your eggs. Brew your beverage; dish the fruit; shake that smoothie.

Oyster Feast w/ Bubbly:    224 calories   7.1 g fat   0.6 g fiber   10.2 g protein   12 g carbs 79.4 mg Calcium    PB    Got something BIG to celebrate: how about a plate of  oysters [some raw and some baked]  with a salad AND a glass of bubbly? This serves TWO, since a celebration deserves company.baked-oystersoysters w: beet-walnut salad

18 medium Eastern oysters, raw                                                                                                                 6 tsp chevre cheese                                                                                                                                            2-3 saltine crackers as medium-fine crumbs, divided into two portions                                                                                              3 cups lettuce                                                                                                                                                           2 Tbsp fresh herbs, [such as thyme, rosemary, chives], chopped                                                            4 oz Sparkling Wine [such as Champagne] per person

Turn on the broiler. Shuck the oysters, discarding the upper shell, but keeping the oyster in the bottom shell. Carefully put 6 oysters on an oven-proof pan. Sprinkle  those oysters with half of the cracker crumbs. Then put 1 tsp of the chevre on each oyster. Top with the rest of the crumbs. Slide under the broiler until the cheese begins to soften and brown just a bit. In a wide bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice and herbs. Toss lettuce with the dressing and add a pinch of salt. Plate the oysters and the salad, pour your bubbly. Cheeers!
