Tony knows that I come up with some strange ideas. When I said the above sentence while making dinner, I think his first thought was going to be “well at least the turkey breast is going to be delicious!”
First I have some pics from the weekend – I didn’t realize how many I had since I only did BSI in yesterdays post.
Hannah’s got some new kicks – she’s on the fence about them now, thinking they look too much like cowboy boots – any fashion conscious readers out there to comment?
I made a quiche Sunday morning – another crustless quiche, this time using ham and bacon on the bottom, and 1 carton of egg beaters.
Over the weekend I attempted to make a carb friendly pizza. The first one was using soy flour and chicken sausage as the base – you had to eat it with a knife and fork, but it was pretty good – I need to tweak it some more though before I post the recipe!
The second pizza was 1 cup soy flour, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 tsp. of yeast.
And Sunday night Tony made dinner . . . egg foo young! We had chicken, bean sprouts, and water chestnuts with a brown gravy over the top – definitely South Beach friendly!
I somehow lost the picture of my lunch on my blackberry – I am really getting good at navigating that phone – I was kind of worried that I wouldn’t even know how to make a phone call (well, I did have to ask when we were at the store!). I had a tofu stir fry with broccoli, bean sprouts, 6 ounces of tofu and bean sprouts. Lunch only came in at 250 calories, 22 carbs, 17 protein, 10.6 fat and 6.2 fiber.
I went to the gym at lunch – I ended up doing my treadmill routine – 45 minutes, 2.0% incline, 4.0 mph while tossing a 4 pound medicine ball back and forth. I watched Rachael Ray make a rosemary chicken dish that she wrapped in prosciutto that looked really good – and great news! FoodTV is back! Whew, crisis averted! The only show I missed was the next Iron Chef, but Tony found it repeats on Wednesday and has it set to DVR so I’ll be caught up by next week – thanks Tony! 😀
I came home to a gift! One of my loyal readers Joy sent me an email a while back and said she saw something and thought of me! She wrote me a cute note saying that “I love signing on every morning to a friend!” How nice is that?? (See Tony, blog readers are my friends!)
Okay, the inspiration for my side dish last night came from here:
Although – not exactly. I had a rather small cauliflower. I cooked the cauliflower in boiling water until tender – about 8 minutes. I put it in a food processor with 1/2 cup soy flour, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 2 eggs, salt and pepper. It kind of ended up looking like mashed potatoes.
Hannah and I immediately deemed these a keeper! Tony on the other hand, couldn’t get past the soy flour aftertaste, which Hannah and I didn’t taste at all. Next time I’ll definitely spice them up with either crushed red pepper or chopped jalapeno in the batter. I just dipped mine in hot sauce at the table!
Sadly, its dark by the time I come home, so we grilled in the dark:
I forgot my regular camera at home yesterday, but in the afternoon since I hadn’t had a lot of calories, a made a giant sugar free vanilla/caramel coffee using about 6 ounces of 2% milk – here is my first picture off of my blackberry – not too bad! There is a way to zoom in and out, I haven’t figured that out yet.
Other snacks for the day included 1/2 a cup of cottage cheese and 1.5 ounces of pistachios.
Stats For Tuesday:
- 1368 calories, 74 carbs, 125 protein, 64 fat and 18 fiber
- 45 minute treadmill, 4.0 mph, 2% incline, 4 pound medicine ball
And if you have made it this far down, I’ll leave you with a beautiful sunset – you can’t have too many, right?!
