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 think they are super cute, but then again, this is coming from someone who washes her face with shampoo!

I made a quiche Sunday morning – another crustless quiche, this time using ham and bacon on the bottom, and 1 carton of egg beaters.

hers n his - can you tell which side is mine?

It was delicious!  I had it with a baby green salad with baby cucumbers and light balsamic.  As I was finishing fixing my plate at work, one of my co-workers wanted to know where the brunch buffet was!

357 calories, 14.5 carbs, 30 protein, 20 fat and 3.5 fiber

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.

I used about a teaspoon of regular flour to roll out the dough

I bought these tomatoes - called caprese tomatoes - each quart box was only $1 - its a very tart sauce which I love!

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!)

she said as soon as she saw this she had to send it to me - thanks Joy! How did she know I like spicy shit?! 😀

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.

I set my deep fryer to 350 degrees.  Using a small melon baller, I just plopped them in the hot oil – again, because the fryer regulates the heat so well, these were not greasy at all.

they cooked in just 2 minutes a batch
crispy on the outside
tender on the inside

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:

My store had fresh turkey breasts on sale for .99 a pound.  Yesterday morning I marinated it with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, slices of lemon, salt, pepper and rosemary.  It was delicious!

the rosemary was so flavorful, and it was nice and juicy - I pulled it off the grill at 160 degrees and let it rest for 10 minutes
Believe it or not, this plate comes in at 321 calories, 12.3 carbs, 49 protein, 5/2 fat and 3.9 fiber - the cauliflower was only 131 calories, the turkey 180, and the sauerkraut was 10 calories

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.

92 caloires, 8.6 carbs, 6 protein, 3.6 fat and 0 fiber

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?!

Make it a Great Day!
