Diet Bites Weight Loss Program, Menu 14
Written by Diet Bites
Breakfast - 1 protein, 2 grains, 1 dairy
1 scrambled egg sandwich - scramble egg, then put between 2 slices of whole grain bread
1 cup of skim milk
Lunch - 2 grains (due to size of bread), 3 vegetables, .5 protein, 2 fat
Soup of the Forest: You will need:
- 1 large roll (about 200 calories) with center removed so that a 'well' is formed
- 1 cup of cream of chicken soup (or your favorite soup)
- butter flavored cooking spray
You can enjoy this delicious soup bowl with or without the bread-bowl toasted.
To enjoy plain, simply fill with soup and enjoy. To toast, spray bread-bowl then bake in a preheated 375-degree oven until the crust is golden brown.
Carefully remove and fill with soup. Be sure to save the bread that you removed to form the well; it's very tasty when dipped into the Soup of the Forest.
Also enjoy with a side salad of 3 cups of any of the following combinations: baby spinach, lettuce, shredded carrots, mushrooms, radishes, tomatoes, cucumber or broccoli. Add your favorite salad dressing, using about 50 calories-worth.
Dinner - 1 protein, 2 grains, 2 vegetables, 1 dairy
Stroganoff: Brown 1/2 pound of extra lean ground beef with 1/2 cup of chopped onions and 1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms.
Drain, then add 4 cups of cooked extra-wide egg noodles, 1/2 cup of skim milk and 1/2 container of light sour cream.
Enjoy 1 cup. Salt and pepper to suit personal taste.
1/2 cup of green peas
1 slice of whole grain bread
* Tip: Stroganoff is even more delicious on the second day and makes a very portable lunch. Simply seal in a plastic bag.
