E2 diet - Day 3

Thursday, June 02, 2011

6/1 I actual did Day 3 (on menu) as day 3. Found a different way to cook Brown Rice - fry it in a hot pan then pour water on it and boil uncovered for part of the cooking process. This gives it a nutty flavor.

B - Simple Cereal Bowl - Had Cheerios & Pumpkin FlaxPlus Granola with a banana and rice milk.

L - E2 Basic Open Face Sandwich w/Hummus - I only used 1 slice of bread and subbed romaine for the arugala without sprouts. The lemon juice on top was really flavorful. It was so simple but delicious.

D - E2 Basic Stir Fry over Brown Rice. I used a spray of Pam with butter flavor. Next time will use a bit more oil rather then Pam because the carrots burnt a little. It also needed more liquid maybe a sauce. The sauce I used cooked up into the veggies. But it did have a good flavor with the nutty rice. (I'm still getting use to my stove. I think the burners are to hot and the oven is too low in temperature.)
Desert - Sliced Apples w/Lemon Juice. I added dried cranberries to it. Very good.

I sure am getting enough to eat. emoticon

    I cook pearl barley the way you cooked your rice and usually add broth instead of water. Thanks for the tip! Glad you're enjoying the challenge. Sorry that you have to have another surgery.
