I've got a few food pics of some of my eats of late. You know you're a food nerd when you are that proud of your meals that you have to take a picture of them to show them off to you guys! lol
This is last night's supper. It's a WW recipe, Spicy Pecan-Crusted Trout and steamed green beans with butter, salt & pepper. I loved it! I have to say afterwards I couldn't really remember tasting or noticing the pecans though. I bet you could leave them out to save on calories and you wouldn't be missing out on anything nutritionally in this meal because it's all covered everywhere else:
This was my lunch on Sunday (and yesterday minus the mushrooms). This was a salad I concocted that was friggin amazing! It's Pear, Pomegranate & Goat Cheese salad:
a few handfulls of mesclin salad greens
a few fresh basil leaves and fresh oregano leaves (make use of any fresh herbs if you have them on hand)
1/3c thinly sliced raw red onion
1c sauted sliced sauteed cremini mushrooms in cooking spray
Dressing: EVOO, raspberry vinegar, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, dijon mustard, S&P, splash of Xango Mangosteen Beverage ( was given some of this by a client to try, apparently Dr. Oz endorses the stuff. I found a great way to use it here, other than drinking shots of it ). Shake it all up in a jar. You don't need much dressing though because the pear and pomegranate is so juicy and tastey on its own!
This salad was scrumptous! The warm sauteed mushrooms warmed up the goat cheese and was perfect. I love these Kiri cheese spread squares with goat cheese (60 cals each) because they are not as strong tasting as regular goat cheese, so it takes the edge of it and it's creamy and yummy :-)
This morning's breakfast:
It's my first try at Fibre One Honey Clusters with skim milk and fresh raspberries. It was very good and the serving was a good hearty one. Although the link I provided here I think is for the American version. The box I bought had a serving size of 1 1/4c and was 200 cals. Lately I have been into cereals with milk. I think it's the refreshing cold milk that's been so appealing lately. Maybe it's my body's way of telling me I've been lacking in calcium. It's possible. Either way, it's nice to change it up and try new things and still feel satisfied. Why do fresh berries have to be so dang expensive? The frozen kind just don't have the same delicious fresh effect on a bowl of cereal.
Lunch today is a tuna sammie: 2 ww bread, light mayo, salad greens, sliced tomato, red onion, 1 package of yellowfin tuna (not the kind in the can, the kind in the rip open package), 1/4 avocado, sliced.
Tonight's supper is Roasted Butternut Squash which is a new recipe I'm trying. It's more like a "stuffed" roasted butternut squash. It has, butternut squash, onion, garlic, tomatoes, cremini mushrooms, canned lima beans, zucchini, fresh oregano, pepper, tomato paste, scallions, worcestershire sauce. It looks delish and it only 62 cals per serving and it sounds pretty bulky especially since it includes lima beans. I'll let yas know how it turns out!
