With our new eating plan, I struggle the most with breakfast, then lunch and dinner is a piece of cake. Not literally . . a piece of cake though sometimes I would much rather have a piece of cake! 🙂
A lot of days I can get creative with leftovers from the previous dinners. If we had grilled chicken, I can slice that up and put it on top of a salad or just heat up leftovers but over the weekend, I hadn’t cooked much so we didn’t have any leftovers. Tuna or chicken salad from canned meat have been my standbys on this diet.
Yesterday I fixed tuna salad and served it in half an avocado on a bed of lettuce, with olives, tomatoes, cucumbers and pickled carrots. I added a bowl of mixed fruit – blackberries, blueberries and apple.
The photo shows Vince’s plate and he had quite a bit more than I did and neither of us could eat it all. Vince commented that before the diet, that amount of food would have been an appetizer and now, it’s more than we can eat as lunch.
Last night I made a casserole, of sorts, with chicken, spaghetti squash and a few other ingredients. It wasn’t something I’ll make again but it wasn’t terrible.
