I am making a couple of recipes from WebMD instead of from my Mediterranean diet books just because they were sitting there and don't require a ton of ingredients. All are low in calories and sodium. Not to mention, they sound good!
I plan to make Black Bean & Salmon Tostadas, Yukon Gold & Sweet Potato Mash along with Corn With Bacon & Mushrooms. They make multiple servings, so I can eat each night this weekend as I struggle with after-dog show exhaustion.
I continue to search for reasonable lunch recipes. I'll let you know if I find any!
My next goal is to pick out recipes from my books. One step at a time!
I am new to the Mediterranean diet and can't wait to get started. As a newbie, I will admit to being just a little nervous about "getting it right" and was hoping that other newbies (and experienced folks!) will join me in this adventure of being a stranger in a strange land.
Post about anything you want. Questions, suggestions, recommendations - anything that makes this journey easier and/or more pleasant for the rest of us.
I'll start by saying that my favorite book so far is the Mediterranean Diet for Dummies. They must have had me in mind when they wrote it. I have borrowed it from the library and plan to renew it at least one time. If I find that I can't live without it, I will get to a used book store or will buy it used off of Amazon.
At the present time, I am most daunted by lunches. I have time in the evenings to cook a good meal, especially if I have enough leftovers to heat up on dog school nights. Lunches are a little more problematic because it needs to be something that I can throw together before work (or better yet, the night before) and have it hold together or taste good when lunch time rolls around. If I have to do a lot of assembly, then I struggle with that. I do have access to refrigerators, a freezer and microwaves, so if anyone has a favorite lunch meal(s), please share!
