I am having roasted sweet potato salad with my lunch tomorrow. I had purchased this salad awhile back from the small cafe in our building for 4.95, and I was determined to figure out what was in it so that I could make it @ home. Today, I decided to try... the roasted part wasn't hard, but getting the taste of the dressing/seasoning was the challenge! The base is olive oil, and the seasonings are: chili powder; cumin; salt; jalepeno (diced); roasted red bell pepper (diced); green onions (bulb sliced thin/tops, diced) and red pepper flakes... I also added a teaspoon of Mongolian Fire Oil.

Normally, the only time I eat yams and sweets potatoes is on the holidays, but thanks to MARVELOUS50s, they will be part of my regular meals... Unfortunately I didn't measure the ingredients, but I will be making some more this week and will make sure to do that so that I can add it to my nutritional tracker. The recipe turned out perfect and at a fraction of the cost!!!! I will share the recipe once I figure it out.

... in the meantime...

~ Food Blog of my lunch...

Sunday, August 08, 2010

I love fried catfish, or any fried fish for that matter, however, I know it's unhealthy, so I decided to try "oven-frying" it... and it actually turned out pretty good! Since Catfish is a fattier fish the nuggets are perfect for this method of cooking.

Calories: 8ozs = 320 (... weighed frozen)
Fat: 10 grams
Protein: 30grams

Yellow corn meal: 3 tablespoons:
Cal: 90
Fat: 1
Carbs: 18
Fiber: 3
Protein: 2

Total: 410, Carbs: 18, Fiber: 3, Fat: 11, Protein: 32


Preheat oven to 425, however, since I have an electric/convection oven, I think my temperature is set to 325/350... Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat thoroughly with cooking oil...

** I season the cornmeal and fish with the following: Chef Merito, Chicken seasoning (Sazonador para Pollo); coarse black pepper, onion powder, & chili powder...

- evenly coat each piece of fish with the cornmeal

- place on the greased baking sheet. Coat the tops of the nuggets with cooking spray until wet.

Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish is brown on both sides and easily flaked with a fork.

... What did you have for lunch today emoticon

  Thanks for sharing on SP. You have been a real inspiration to me today. I have just joined this team after reading some of your blogs.
My eating has been out of control and since I have diabetes that is especially harmful to my health. I think some new recipes will really help. Can't wait to try this recipe as catfish is a favorite but we usually grill it.
Also look forward to the sweet potato recipe. I don't usually eat potatoes but occasionally would like to have a sweet potato.
Am going to read more of your blogs today to hopefully find more recipes.
Again, please keep posting for folks like me.

~ ... trying a new protein whey product

Saturday, August 07, 2010

emoticon•.•*΄¨΄*•.• emoticon•.•*΄¨΄*•.• emoticon

... I just purchased the following protein drink... it is more like a juice protein drink than a shake, I think that I will enjoy this much better and it will be easier to drink and perfect for my lower carb diet...

4Ever Fit Presents: Fruit Blast - The Isolate


... here is the description:

High Branch Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) Profile

Fruit Blast™ The Isolate delivers one of the highest Branch Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) profiles and is rapidly absorbed for powerful and effective lean muscle gain. Each serving contains ZERO trans fat and no added carbohydrates. It's perfect for any low-carb diet plan.


Fruit Blast™ The Isolate supplies your body with whey fractions that include glycomacro-peptide, alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin and immunoglobulins. These valuable fractions support the immune system, assist recovery and boost essential amino acid content.

Fruit Blast™ The Isolate provides maximum nutrient utilization with none of the digestive system discomfort that can be caused by lower-quality proteins. Low in calories and lactose, Fruit Blast™ The Isolate should be appropriate for anyone with milk allergies.


One of the best-tasting proteins also mixes with a spoon. Mix one or two scoops of Fruit Blast™ The Isolate with cold water to make a delicious and refreshing protein drink. Use milk or juice to create a thicker smoothie-style drink.

Fruit Blast™ The Isolate is completely soluble, so there's no need for a blender or any messy clean-up. Scoop, mix and enjoy! Who knew staying fit could taste this good?

... I will review this product when I have tried it...

    Can't wait to hear your review. I use Syntrax Nectar Protein (Fuzzy Navel flavor). I love the juice flavored protein isolates. One problem with the Syntrax is that it foams up if you blend it in a blender or shaker. If you stir it, the liquid must not be too cold or it clumps, but the flavor is awesome.

    Sounds good. I'll look forward to your review. I am a big fan of protein drinks and breakfast shakes. I rarely ate breakfast and know that it is very important so I've started with breakfast shakes (I don't like the term smoothie - too clichι) I have quite the collection of items on my counter beside my magic bullet. That way I crank out a shake and take it with me to work. I keep peeled banana chunks in the freezer and use that for the frozen element in the shake, add unsweetened almond milk, whatever other fruits or berries I happen to have, a handful of baby spinach leaves and one of the various protein/superfood/meal replacement powder I feel like that day. If I don't use the powders then chia seeds, hemp hearts, ground wild brown millet (my new favorite very powerful minerals, trace elements and silica), goji berries, flax meal . . .
My new favorite afternoon pick-me-up is 6 oz of unsweetened almond milk with a scoop of a product from St. Francis Herb Farms called Solar Synergy. Amazing stuff!!!
