Simple way to lose weight and be healthier. Welcome to dailyhealth123 and Ronald Oliver and Care Your and S Kendall who are now Following.

On February 4, 1902, Charles Lindbergh was born. I don’t know if that was a particularly auspicious date, but he came to be known as “Lucky Lindy.” He, of course, was the first person to make a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean and he did it to win the Orteig Prize of $25,000. After flying in radio silence [the ‘Spirit of St. Louis‘ did not have a radio] for 36 hours, a massively sleep-deprived Lindbergh landed in Paris to be greeted by a jubilant crowd and great acclaim. Eight other aviators had vied for the prize and died. Lindy was Lucky indeed. From that point, his life took several different turns. He married Anne Morrow, daughter of an ambassador, who became his co-pilot and a celebrated author. The drama of the kidnapping and murder of their first son shocked and riveted the attention of the world. Many good-will tours took the couple to Europe in the 1930s, where Lindbergh was tasked with assessing the status of the German air force to see if it was a threat to the Allies. His reports were glowing, which began to make experts think that he was pro-Nazi. Lindbergh, like his father, was anti-war and he did indeed admire the Germans. He continued to be against the war in Europe. Lindbergh keynoted at rallies, speaking with xenophobic and racist statements against the US becoming involved and for putting ‘America First.’ After Pearl Harbor, he was assigned [without rank] to help with the aviation efforts in the Pacific Theater. He flew 50 combat missions — was that fueled by his previous claim in 1940 that “No nation in Asia has developed their aviation sufficiently to be a serious menace to the United States at this time”? — one wonders. After the war, Lindbergh received the Pulitzer Prize for the book The Spirit of St. Louis, advocated for the World Wildlife Fund, and retired to Hawaii where he died in 1974.

Lindberg took a bottle of water and a bag of sandwiches on his 36-hour flight. I’m guessing they were ham and cheese sandwiches, and that’s what we find in our eggs for breakfast. Since the Lindbergs retired to Hawaii, our dinner includes the pineapple: Hawaii’s famous fruit.

Ham & Cheese ScrOmelette: 165 calories 10 g fat 2 g fiber 13 g protein 5.6 g carbs [4.6 g Complex] 111 mg Calcium  NB: Food values shown are for the ScrOmelette and fruit only, and do not include the optional beverages.  PB GF  You can prepare this as an omelette or as scrambled eggs. Either way, its a winner.

1 ½ two-oz eggs  HINT: If you are serving one person, crack three 2-oz eggs into a small bowl or glass measuring cup. Whip up those eggs and pour half of their volume into a jar with a lid and put it in the ‘fridge for next week.  ¼ oz Jarlsberg cheese 1-½ oz apples  ¼ oz ham [Fat and calories for this recipe based on roast ham. Use 3% fat ham, to lower both those values] Optional: blackish coffee [53 calories] or blackish tea or mocha cafe au lait [65 calories] or lemon in hot water Optional: 5 oz fruit smoothie or berry-yogurt smoothie  [88 calories]

Spritz a saute pan with non-stick spray and heat it. Put the ham into the hot saute pan to warm it briefly, then add the eggs and cheese. Scramble together [or cook like an omelette] until the way you like it. Plate with the fruit, prepare your optional beverage, and enjoy the goodness of ham&cheese.

Chicken with Limes: 283 calories 7.6 g fat 3 g fiber 23 g protein 35 g carbs [29 g Complex] 61 mg Calcium   PB GF Limes, chicken, and pineapple were added to the ecosystem of Tahiti by various visitors, and were promptly incorporated into the cuisine. We served this at a dinner party and no one would have guessed that it was a Fasting meal. Here is the one-serving method for <Poulet avec Limettes.>

3 oz chicken breast, boneless, skinless, and cut in 2 pieces across the width thyme + salt + pepper 1 lime: ½ of it zested and juiced; ½ of it sliced ¼ cup chicken stock ½ tsp sugar + 1 tsp cornstarch [cornflour] ½ oz heavy cream 3 oz slice of pineapple, fresh or canned in light juice ¼ cup brown rice, cooked

Marinate the chicken in the lime juice, zest, salt, pepper, and thyme in the ‘fridge for at least 2 hours. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and put 1/3 of the marinade into one small container and the remainder into a sauce pan. We grilled the chicken briefly and then removed it to a plate while the pineapple and lime slices were grilled. If you are not grilling today, put the pineapple and lime slices under the broiler until they are a little charred and hot all the way through. Meanwhile, add the stock and chicken to the pan with the marinade and heat it until the chicken is mostly cooked. Remove the chicken and keep warm. Bring the liquids to a boil and reduce by 1/3 of the volume. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, and remaining marinade. Reduce the heat and stir until thickened. [This happens rather quickly] Return the chicken to the pan, add the cream. Stir to combine and to coat the chicken with the sauce. Plate with the rice and pineapple and lime slices for a taste of Hawaii.
