The Old Sailor Diet

Written by Diet Bites

This diet was inspired by the sea, and for those who hold a passion for the sea, but it's a diet menu that even the most persnickety of land-lubbers will enjoy.   Guys, go grab your coconut bra, and girls - go grab your guy because we're ready to Diet Cast-off!

Breakfast Menu: (About 250 Calories)

Hurricane Hula - You'll need 1/2 small can of unsweetened crushed pineapple plus 1/2 the juice, Splenda (doctor to your personal preferred sweetness), a dash of nutmeg, a cup of ice cold skim milk and a few ice cubes. Reserve a teaspoon of the pineapple juice for the Diet Survivor Toast listed below. Toss all into a blender and whirl until smooth.

Diet Survivor Toast - Spread pineapple juice over bread (70 calories or less). Next, spray with no calorie butter spray. Dust with ground cinnamon and a spoon of REAL sugar. Cook under broiler until golden brown OR on top of stove in non-stick pan using no calorie butter flavored cooking spray.

May add coffee/tea if desired prepared with low fat creamer and no calorie sugar

Mid Morning Snack: (About 80 Calories)

1 cup low fat Key Lime Pie yogurt

Lunch Menu: (About 400 Calories)

Pineapple Boat a Float - Heat a non-stick skillet sprayed generously with no calorie, non-stick, butter flavored cooking spray. Add 1 cubed chicken tender - or about 2 ounces of lean chicken - all visible fat removed. Add 1/2 cup of water.

Next, add a 1/2 cup mix of the following to chicken - all finely diced: onion (any color/variety), bell pepper (any color/variety), fresh snow peas and grated carrot. Sprinkle on sea salt and cracked black pepper to suit personal taste. Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger onto mix.  

Next, go grab the 1/2 can of crushed pineapple left from breakfast. Drain, reserving juice to which you will add 1 Tablespoon of Splenda and a dash of cinnamon. Add pineapple, then pour mixture into skillet with chicken mixture which has now cooked to a golden brown color.  

Serve over your favorite rice - using about 3/4 cup of rice. Rather than using water in rice, you may opt for your favorite flavor of tea to give the rice a unique flavor.

Serve with 1 dinner roll spread with no calorie butter. Include a side salad of a combination of the following with 1 Tablespoon of your favorite salad dressing: lettuce, tomato, onion, bell pepper, carrots, cucumber, fresh spinach.
