SMOOTHIES & Egg Sandwiches

Day 4 of the diet.

It's going really well... I haven't been hungry at all, if anything sometimes I can't eat all the food. I'm figuring out the balance of foods that is required so I can stop following recipes in the book (some of which are very gross) and creating my own new recipes.

One of the best book recipes is for a smoothie - I modified slightly, but here's what it is:


1 cup 0% Fage Yogurt
2 tsp Whey Protein (I use vanilla)
1 1/2 cup fresh strawberries (frozen are OK too)
1 cup 1% milk
2 tsp organic peanut butter
ice cubes

This makes two large smoothies - and it's really delicious and amazingly filling.

I couldn't drink them EVERY morning though because sometimes I just want eggs. I picked up a great egg sandwich recipe:


1 egg, 3 egg whites
1 or 2 tbsp ground flax seed
1 or 2 pieces of GF bread (Sometimes I just do an open-faced sandwich)
1 piece canadian bacon
1 slice of fresh tomato
fresh avocado on top or on the side

I just scramble up the eggs with the flax & heat up the bacon - put down the toasted bread, then bacon, then eggs, and place the tomato on top. I added some fresh avocado yesterday and it was great.
