New & Old

How this Fast Diet Lifestyle works: Eat these meals tomorrow. On Monday, eat the meals that will be posted on Sunday.  Eat sensibly the other days of the week.  That’s it.  Simple way to lose weight and be healthier.

One key to success in life is to be flexible. There are those who like a set, predictable routine, while some people never plan ahead. For me, I like the routine of two Fast Days per week with lots of flexibility as to what we eat. Here we have a new recipe for breakfast and an old stand-by for dinner.

Mash/flake the cod and stir it into the cabbage and arugula. Douse with a few shakes of salsa verde, sprinkle with a pinch of cumin. Spritz a saute pan with non-stick spray and heat it. Put the fish/vegetables into the hot saute pan to cook and wilt, then add the eggs. Scramble together [or cook like an omelette] until the way you like it. Portion the applesauce and prepare the beverages. All set for unusual things to come your way.

Cook in olive oil with the onions and garlic, and take off heat. Mince the chicken. Combine the contents of the saute pan with the chicken and all other ingredients, except the Parmesan. Spoon into the zucchini boats and use it all up. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake at 350 for 20 -30 minutes.
