Easy Does It

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.

Busy, busy, BUSY! If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, summer is over and the kids are back at school and new projects are starting at work and the garden needs to be harvested and….  If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, Spring is about to arrive and the garden has to be gotten ready and the camper has to be checked out and the list of things at work gets longer and… I hear you: you want EASY food.  Fasting tomorrow is going to get really easy.  Who wants to prepare complicated meals at this time of year?                                                          So, the breakfast for tomorrow is left-over quiche from Monday night’s dinner.  Add some fresh fruit, coffee, and a smoothie and you are all set.  Dinner consists of chicken sliders in BBQ sauce.  The chicken can be from a previous dinner and the preparation is a snap.

Warm the chicken and the sauce together over low heat. Open the slicer buns and toast them lightly on a heavy skillet. Spoon the filling into the slider buns and cut each one in half. One serving = 3 halves. Plate with the vegetables for an absurdly easy dinner.
