Fri. Dec 7th

Daily Tidbit:    Another smoothie today:  a Tropical one with ripe Bananas, fresh Pineapple, Vanilla Yogurt & Romaine.  I think I like the flavor of the one yesterday a little more (which used Spinach instead) but the Romaine adds Protein among other things, and made it more crisp and refreshing!  Full recipe below.



Breakfast: Shredded Wheat & Smoothie
1 cup Plain Shredded Wheat (not frosted/ no sugar!)
1 cup Fat Free Milk
2 tbsp Plain chopped Walnuts
5oz Tropical Romaine Smoothie (recipe below)
Regular Coffee, 1/2 tsp Cocoa, splash Fat Free Milk

Love that the Shredded Wheat Cereal I'm eating now (Trader Joe's) has 2 ingredients:  Wheat & Vitamin E for freshness.  That is it, nothing else!


Lunch:  Egg Tortilla & Zucchini with Ranch
1/2 Large Flour Tortilla (just cut in half) and rolled with 1 Extra Large Scrambled Egg & 2 tsp Ranch Dressing

Zucchini slices, served with  tsp Ranch Dressing
Decaf Coffee, sprinkle of Cinnamon, splash of Fat Free Milk

Snack:  1/4 cup dry roasted, lightly salted Peanuts


Dinner:  Friends for Dinner:

Green & Black Olives, marinated in EVOO, Red Pepper Flake & Orange Zest - I ate roughly 8
Pistachios - I ate a ton of these, a ton - probably a cup
Cheddar Cheese - I ate about 8 slivers

Organic Red Quinoa Salad, made with Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon, Black Beans, Corn, Spinach, Tomatoes, sliced Garlic, juice from 1 Lime, EVOO & Red Wine Vinegar
1/2 Avocado
1 Potato Pancake & Spicy Aioli (recipe below)

*I have everything in the above plate, plus 3 slices of French Baguette dipped in EVOO and spices, and I had another serving of the Quinoa Salad - it was my first time making that and I really liked it! 



Dessert:  Super Decadent Chocolate Mouse Cake, topped with Dark Chocolate and White Chocolate& Proseco

*Yes, I had a 2nd piece of this cake; it was a touch smaller than this one, how could I resist?



Tropical Romaine Smoothie:

Into blender put:

1 cup pureed fresh Pineapple

1 cup Fat Free All Natural Vanilla Yogurt

2 ripe peeled Bananas

1 large handful chopped Romaine

Blend and serve!


Potato Pancake Recipe:

For this I just took some leftover Mashed Potatoes and Peas, mixed in some corn chip crumbs and Cheddar Cheese and fried them in the Cast Iron Pan with some Canola Oil - 4 minutes a side.  I made the aioli by mixing Olive Oil Mayo with Red Pepper Hot Sauce, Cumin and a little Ketchup for sweetness
