1st day of E2 diet
Tuesday, May 31, 2011
I decided to give the E2 Diet 28 day-challenge a try starting yesterday.
I am going to 1/2 most of the recipes. I started with Day 7 because I couldn't wait to eat the pancakes.
B - E2 pancakes. Added blueberries to the buckwheat pancake mix made with rice milk. Cooked more blueberries with small amount of water to pour over top. Pancakes needed something sweet so I added a banana.
L - Ann's Panini was really really good. I've never made a panini before. I used Ds9kie's Spinach & red pepper hummus recipe. I still piled on the fresh spinach on the panini. It didn't take long to make and I absolutely loved it. I added an apple to the menu.
D - E2 big salad with Brussels Sprouts & New Potatoes. We went to the steakNshake. I had a garden salad. When I got home chopped everything up for the roasting. (used frozen Brussels sprouts and small russet potatoes). Then arrange some lettuce in a bowl and started cutting up an orange (a substitute for mandarin oranges). Made the Dijon Dressing on page 232 to mix in the salad. Roasted the veggies for 18 min then took the potatoes and microwaved them on the potato setting, because they weren't done. It didn't take long for the veggies to cool down. I mixed it all together. Here I halfed the recipe and it was still too much. I will add it to tomorrow's lunch. I didn't have the cookie (88 degrees out and used the oven for the roasted veggie, so I didn't want to overdo it) I had a small bowl of applesauce with a strawberry on top for dessert
I had dinner later then usual because going out with friends and it was soo much food. I felt stuffed all night. But everything was delicious and will definitely have it again.
