Delicious, filling, good-for-you snack!


I just made this, and it was awesome!

  1. Grab some stuff you think would taste good on a tomato (here, I used extra virgin olive oil, balsamic glaze, parmesan cheese, pepper, and thyme, and will explain the next steps using those ingredients)
  2. Slice tomato and arrange like a flower/robot—or as you wish :)
  3. Drizzle a tiny bit of oil and glaze onto slices
  4. Sprinkle cheese/herbs on top

I used too much pepper and thyme in this example—in fact, these ingredients can be omitted entirely, and it’s still lovely.  You want merely to accentuate the delicate flavors of the tomatoes, olive oil, and balsamic glaze.  Fresh basil or cilantro works wonders, but I had none available today.

For those concerned about the oil, it’s only a tiny drizzle of olive oil, which is really good for you.  Importantly, it adds a subtle richness to the flavor which makes this more of a satisfying dish and less like “rabbit food”.

PS - I didn’t mean this to be an ad for TJ’s, honest!

Asparagus Fried Rice!
288 calories, 51 carbs, 1g fat, 16g protein!
~
 This recipe is filled with asparagus, chopped water chestnuts that create a delicious crunch, and egg whites for added lean protein. You can use this basic recipe for fried rice with whatever veggies you like, broccoli is one of my favorite additions (I buy the frozen broccoli cauliflower blends to save time and money), red pepper slices and bamboo shoots are also fantastic in fried rice!
~
You need:
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped shallots
1 can (1 cup) water chestnuts, chopped
2 cups chopped asparagus
2.25 cups cooked long grain white rice
4 egg whites
1/3 cup soy sauce (you can opt for low sodium!)
2 teaspoons Mirin
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1.- chop and set aside all ingredients, this is super important because the most important part of making a good stir fry is having all the ingredients ready to go so you don’t have to stop cooking
2.- over medium high heat cook onions and garlic with 2 Tablespoons water for 1 minute, add water chestnuts and water as necessary (by the Tablespoon), cook another minute
3.- add rice, cook 1 minute then push everything to the edges of the pan
4.- add egg whites, scramble quickly in the middle then incorporate into the dish
5.- add asparagus, half the soy sauce and mirin, cook 3 minutes
6.- add spices and remaining soy sauce, continue cooking 3-4 minutes until everything is incorporated and asparagus is tender
Makes 3 servings

Weight gain.

I am so mad. So I just stepped on the scales and it says 93.6 , I was at 88 a few weeks back ! I am so utterly disappointed in myself. Going raw this month to shed off this weight. Fuming right now !
