Tues. June 5th

Breakfast!  Whole Wheat English Muffin with Peanut Butter & Banana Slices!

Daily Tidbit:   In the June 2012 issue of Health Magazine there is a  “Fat Burning Dozen” food list for people looking to speed up their metabolism.  This content is not yet available on their website but you can check it out here:

1.  Citrus Fruits
2. Wild Salmon
3. Walnuts
4. Eggs
5. Quinoa
6. Avocado
7. Artichokes
8. Lentils
9. Blackberries
10. Yogurt/ Kefir
11. Dark Leafy Greens, like Spinach & Kale
12. Coffee

Happy to see some of my ‘go-to foods’ on there and to get a couple new ideas for my shopping list!

Breakfast: Whole Wheat English muffin sandwich
With 1 tbsp of Low Sodium, All Natural Peanut Butter
½ Banana, sliced
5 oz. glass of OJ
Regular Coffee, black

I was a little worried when I saw how little this sandwich looked on the plate, but it kept me full to lunch!  I love having another easy yummy and healthy option for breakfast that incorporates the protein, fiber and complex carbs that I need to start my day!

Beef & Bean Chili with Parmesan Cheese

Lunch: Beef & Bean Chili
Chili leftovers from last night
A couple shakes of Parmesan cheese
½ Avocado
Water with Lemon
Regular Coffee, black

*I often add a new ingredient to leftovers to keep it interesting.  In this case adding a couple shakes of Parmesan cheese did the trick because a little goes a long way!  Adding the Avocado also introduced a nice creaminess and coolness to the heat and spice of the Chili!

Cucumbers & Hummus for Snack!

Snack:  Cucumbers (the burp-less variety) with ¼ cup of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (Recipe from June 1st Post - yes I have made this twice this week!)

Snack:  1 Plain Hard Boiled Egg, Fat Free Milk

Salmon Satay Veggie Blast for Dinner!

Dinner: Salmon Satay Veggie Blast!

This is an easy and super yummy meal.  The Satay sauce was inspired by Rachael Ray’s Recipe:

I used Red Pepper Flake instead of the Red Curry Paste simply because that is not in our kitchen right now.  And I use a bit more Soy Sauce (the Lower Sodium kind) to make the sauce a little darker and the Soy Sauce a more dominant flavor.

Wild Caught Alaskan Keta Salmon fillet tossed with sauteed and browned Veggies:  Vidalia Onion, Garlic, Zucchini, Carrots, Red Bell Peppers, Peas, and wilted Baby Spinach; in Satay sauce and topped with Walnuts, Cilantro & Fresh Lime Juice
White Wine

Dessert:   Organic Gala Apple, Water
