Yesterday’s lunch was so good!  You’ll have to wait to see my breakfast though! 😀

Breakfast was a zucchini frittata – the bottom layer being sliced canned potatoes, then 4 ounces of shredded zucchini, topped with1 egg, 1/2 cup of egg whites and 1/4 cup reduced fat Colby cheese.  I put it in an oven safe frying pan and baked it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  This was so filling!

Lunch was another recipe out of January’s Bon Appetit magazine – Pork Meatball Bahn Mi.  When the recipe called for 1/4 cup fresh basil, I thought it was too much, but it was perfect!  And the addition of sriracha sauce really kicked it up a notch!


I used my melon baller and got 24 meatballs out of the 1 pound mixture – or 6 meatballs per serving.


Then just Pam fried them (with about 1 tsp. sesame oil)


To assemble – I used greek yogurt mixed with sriracha sauce instead of mayo.  The only thing I should have done was used a soft bun, this one was a bit too crunchy.

It was so flavorful!  This one is definitely a keeper!  Dinner was leftovers – I had to use up left over roast beef so I made cheezy beef sammies with polenta fries.

I had mine on an Arnold thin, 1 oz. of mozzarella cheese, 3 ounces of beef and 3 ounces of polenta – I really liked how the fries turned out!  I had trouble logging on the internet this morning, so I don’t have the exact stats for the day, but it was around 1450.  I also did a 35 minute Firm DVD at lunch with a 10 minute run after that and 5 minute cool down.

Wow, I have exactly six minutes to get ready for work – good thing I am low maintenance! 😀
