Meal consists of miso soup, Coach Nicole's Vegetarian "Meat" Loaf (http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-det
ail.asp?recipe=759), cauliflower "mashed potatoes" (http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-det
ail.asp?recipe=610934) & fruit. Both the 'meat' loaf & 'mashed potatoes' were FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!! Glad I have tons left over, some of which I've frozen.
Total meal (a bit more than usual, since most meals are 300-400 calories & closer to 300):

Even if someone's not vegetarian (actually, I USED to be & now eat occasional fish/seafood), the key is....lots of fruits & especially veggies & lots of color. I mean.....what fun would it be to eat a white-ish beige piece of fish along with rice--brown or otherwise.
So there's cooked onions, zucchini, summer squash & tomatoes. Then on hummus sandwich there are tomatoes, balsamic grilled onions & alfalfa sprouts. Add in the grapes & oranges & there's LOTS of color--at least 5 or 6!

Well, this isn't one of the best pictures I've ever taken, but.....it still TASTED delicious! Again, a SparkRecipe of Quinoa with Spinach and Feta Cheese, except I only had about 3/4 oz of feta, so I supplemented it with 1/4oz of three cheese (parmesan, romano & assiago) & it was great! Rounded out the meal with broccoli, grapes & strawberries & it was a nice meal.

Today's sandwich is a SparkRecipe: grilled cheese pizza sandwich, starting with my 60 calorie slices of multi-grain bread, I used Newman's Own spaghetti sauce, mozzarella & parmesan cheeses, then added grilled veggies (onions, baby bellas), roasted red peppers, Italian seasonings & put sandwich in pan with no oil or butter--still browns! (who knew?)

    I'd say the majority of my meals are SparkRecipes--either vegetarian or fish & I haven't made one yet that I haven't enjoyed. One of my faves is crustless spinach, onion & feta quiche with jalapeno cornbread (just add to the batter--mild jalapenos....I'm a wimp) with dab of butter; then I add a steamed veggie--usually broccoli & a fruit--orange, melon, strawberries or grapes. Talk about a FABULOUS meal!!!!!!!! emoticon

A Simple Meal 4/13/11

Wednesday, April 13, 2011


Feel like a hot dog? How about a healthy choice of turkey or chicken dogs (if they're considered healthy). For me, I had a vegetarian Smart Dog on a whole grain, 110 calorie hot dog bun by Healthy Life, topped with ketchup & onions. Surround it with pickle, veggie (I had steamed cabbage) & fruit & you've got yourself a complete, healthy meal.

    You have no idea how much I love hot dogs! I've never tried vegetarian hot dogs...I've done the burgers and chiken sandwiches...
I'll think about it :)

    This looks so good, though I'd leave off the onions cuz I'm allergic. Thanks for the nice picture blog!
