Breakfast - whole wheat toast, a smear of light cream cheese, topped with some smoked salmon.

There's some fat in the cream cheese and lots of sodium in the salmon. But normally I'd smoke my own salmon and not put any salts on it.

This is ridiculously delicious and it sure beats pancakes and waffles health-wise.

Breakfast most every day...

Kirkland Brand Shake Blended with Ice... It has a ton of Vits and Minerals as well as PROTEIN which helps with the hunger... Blending it with ice doubles the size and makes it take longer to eat.

I have read tons of articles about meal replacement shakes and smoothies that show an increase in weight loss for those that drink them...

The last time I dropped 50+ I used the shakes for a meal...

Last night for supper we had tacos, with a few changes.,

First, I make my own seasoning:

2 tsp instant minced onions
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp corn starch
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
2 TBSP Crushed Flaxseed (available in the flour aisle)

Add the above to 1 lb. browned meat (your choice, we use 83% lean beef) and 3/4 cup water. Simmer for 10 minutes. Serves 8 tacos.

For toppings, I chopped up the traditional tomatoes and my wife shredded cheese, but we replaced the lettuce with shredded fresh spinach. I tossed in a couple of Vlassic Jalapenos from a jar (nothing fresh available around here atm) on mine for fun.

The flaxseed adds omega-3, the spinach and tomato add antioxidants and fiber, not to mention better flavor than ratty old iceberg lettuce.

Not really looking for creativity or originality points, but normally I'd eat 2 pieces of pizza and wouldn't even consider the pineapple....



(The pineapple did go quite well with the pizza. I was suprised.)

Jeffus - we order pineapple on our pizza fairly often. It's a great combo.

Here's a picture of my turkey burger last night. It was damn good if I might say so myself. There was nothing 'diet tasting' about it.

Those must be the peppers you mentioned on the left? Are they spicy, or what would you compare them to? Spicy and green I like, but I can't stand green peppers until they turn red.

that's actually a photo of my wife's plate, which means that that's a plain ole' green bell pepper. She doesn't like poblanos. I had a poblano but the plate wasn't as pretty

If you like green and spicy you should definitely try a poblano. They aren't overly hot. I char the heck out of them on the grill, then put them in a closed paper bag for a few minutes (to steam so the skin comes off easily). Then just served it up.

Sounds like my wife,except she wouldn't eat the green pepper either...or the mushrooms, or the turkey, or the avocado...so basically she'd end up with a grilled cheese.

I'll have to find some poblanos and give 'em a shot.

Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Start off with some ground turkey and any Asian spices. I've even used hoisin sauce, plum sauce, and a teriyaki marinade in leiu of the spice packet.


Brown up the turkey. Add the spice packet. Toss in some peanuts, shredded carrots, and I threw in a little hot Asian chili paste because I like the zip.


Oh perfect, just realized I still had some cilantro in the fridge!


Serve on some lettuce leafs. These are Romaine. Fold up and eat.



Incredibly delicious and easy too.

Chicken is a staple of any good diet and I've found a good way to keep chicken yummy, interesting and good for you.

Basically you take boneless, skinless breasts, but them between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound them flat until they're about 1/4-1/2 inch in uniform thickness.

What I do then is make up a "stuffing" for them. I most often use cream cheese as a base and add whatever spices I have, but the possibilities are endless. I spread this mixture onto the flattened breasts and roll them up securing with toothpicks. Then glaze with butter (for browning) and bake for about 30 minutes. Yum!
