Unusual

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

Today we will turn the menu on its head by eating the eggs for dinner.  There are many good supper recipes which contain eggs as the protein, but for those days I prefer to serve a breakfast without eggs.  Since I’m ga-ga over marinated herring, those become the star at breakfast.  {NB: if you have high blood pressure and take a MOAI antidepressant, ask your physician about tyramine and certain foods such as marinated herring.}                                                                                                                                                  And while you eat through this unusual menu, read about some unusual ways to eat less:  https://www.yahoo.com/news/6-unusual-ways-lose-weight-155500791.html

3 hardboiled eggs, peeled and each cut into rounds                                                                               3 oz onions, sliced                                                                                                                                                      2 tsp garlic, chopped                                                                                                                                                   1 tsp dried thyme + 1 tsp salt + ½ tsp pepper                                                                                                 1/3 cup garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed    [Goya is a highly reliable brand]                                                                                                10 fluid oz of tomatoes, drained [save the juice]                                                                                                 1 oz Swiss cheese or Gruyere, grated                                                                                                                   2 oz broccoli

Arrange the eggs on the bottom of a 3-cup baking dish. Cook the onions and garlic in some of the tomato juice, about 3 minutes. Add seasonings, tomatoes and the remaining juice. If tomatoes are in large chunks, crush with a fork. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer covered for 4 minutes. Pour over the eggs and sprinkle with the cheese. Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees F., then broil 2-3 minutes to brown the top.
