It is now March. If you have been diligent about Fasting, then you are marching along toward your goal of a new-looking you. A long journey begins with a single step, and a quest to control your eating begins with a single meal. You have your ‘marching orders.’ For other menu suggestions, read https://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs/fast-diet-recipes-low-calorie-meals-120306312–abc-news-lifestyle.html which is based on Dr. Mosley’s original appearance on Good Morning America in 2013.
Ham Bake: 286 calories 7.2 g fat 1.9 g fiber 15.5 g protein 35 g carbs 282 mg Calcium GF
1 two-oz egg ¼ oz 3 % fat ham from the deli, minced 1 Tbsp reduced fat ricotta 1 tsp Parmesan cheese, grated large pinch of crumbled sage + salt & pepper to taste ¼ cup blueberries or 2 oz unsweetened applesauce blackish coffee, blackish tea, or lemon in hot water 5-6 oz smoothie or natural apple cider
Spritz a ramekin with non-stick spray and set the toaster oven to 350 degrees F. Vigorously whisk the egg, ham, cheeses, and seasonings and pour into ramekin. Bake 15-17 minutes until puffed, not until golden. Portion the fruit, pour the beverages and this will surely be a good day.
Lobster Thermador: 269 calories 13.4 g fat 5.5 g fiber 29 g protein 18.4 g carbs 130.5 mg Calcium PB GF Lobster is wonderful for the Fasting Lifestyle, whether you get it pre-cooked or raw. The damage comes when it is slathered in butter. I think that butter masks the clean, pure taste of the lobster, so I haven’t dunked my lovely crustacean in it for years. This recipe is so elegant yet lacks calories to such an extent that I have added a very French dessert course: fresh peaches and raspberries.
¾ cup lobster, cooked and cut into chunks 1 Tbsp heavy cream 2 Tbsp Béchamel sauce [see: 1789, posted on July 13, 2016.] HINT: I always keep Béchamel sauce frozen in small amounts. ½ tsp Dijon mustard flat-leaved parsley, chopped, for garnish 3 oz green beans dessert: 1 oz raspberries [fresh or frozen] + 2 oz peaches, cut into cubes [fresh or frozen]
Stir together the cream, Béchamel, and mustard. Lightly fold in the lobster. Heap into a ramekin, sprinkle on the parsley, and heat at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Cook the beans and put the fruits in a lovely bowl for dessert.
