…and that is as American as apple pie. Mary Azarian‘s primer A Farmer’s Almanac depicts life in Northern New England via woodcuts. “A” is of course for “Apple” and this year we had a bumper crop. Today, our recipes begin with “A” and they illustrate how easy and delicious it is to follow the Fasting Lifestyle, starting with apples in the breakfast.
Apple-Bacon Bake: 270 calories 6.3 g fat 3.5 g fiber 14 g protein 37 g carbs 220.5 mg Calcium PB GF What a perfect taste for Autumn or any time of year.
1 two-oz egg ¾ oz apple, peeled, cored, sliced thinly 1/8 oz bacon, diced 1 Tbsp ricotta cheese, drained if too liquid ¼ tsp Parmesan cheese ¼ tsp prepared mustard pinch of sage ¾ oz pear blackish coffee or tea or lemon in hot water 5-6 oz fruit smoothie or green smoothie or unpasturized apple cider
Spritz a ramekin with cooking spray. Set the toaster oven at 350 degrees F. In a saute pan, cook the bacon until done. Drain away the fat and blot the bacon in paper towel. Chop the bacon. In the same pan, saute the apple slices until softened but not mushy. Put apple and bacon in the ramekin. TIP: This can be done the night before to save time and effort in the morning. Whisk the egg, ricotta, Parmesan, mustard, and sage together, and pour into the ramekin. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Prepare the beverages and the pear. How pleasant.
Antipasto with Tuna: 282 calories 10.6 g fat 8.7 g fiber 20 g protein 23.7 g carbs 250 mg Calcium PB GF This one is a keeper: simple, off the shelf, pretty on the plate, good to eat.
