Our 14 Carrot Diet Plan Based on the Healthy Carrot
Do you like carrots? If so then you may fall in love with our 14 Carrot Diet Plan. It's a gem for sure - containing a treasure of foods from Mother Nature's backyard. Let's get started, shall we?
One serving of hot or cold cereal, one slice of whole grain bread, 1/2 fresh banana, one serving of low fat milk and a teaspoon of light margarine for the toast (or the warm cereal).
Enjoy the other half of the banana. Also enjoy a couple of vanilla wafers with the banana. Okay - make it three.
Let's enjoy a beautiful and healthy fresh salad prepared with natural food choices. Try the following mix: shredded carrot, sliced cucumber, cherry tomatoes or chunks of tomato, shredded lettuce, sliced mushrooms and your choice of a lean protein.
The protein can be either vegetable or animal. I've found that as I've aged, it's very difficult to eat animal protein so a great option includes any of the following: chickpeas, black beans or your favorite nuts or seeds.
Be sure to 'go big' with your salad as raw vegetables contain minimal calories except for the few minor exceptions: corn, potato, and sweet potato.
Drizzle your favorite light or low fat salad dressing onto the fresh vegetables and enjoy with whole grain crackers. Also enjoy a glass of unsweetened tea or your favorite low calorie vegetable.
A carrot and raisin salad. Grate 2 carrots; add a spoon or two of Miracle Whip Light or your favorite reduced fat salad dressing; also add a teaspoon of golden or dark raisins.
One pan-roasted pork chop OR a side of pinto beans. Also enjoy one serving of rice - either brown or white. Enjoy one slice of whole grain bread and a cup of skim or reduced fat milk. Also enjoy a serving of carrot pudding.
To prepare the carrot pudding, cook one small of peeled carrots until tender. Mash and add skim milk - about 1/2 cup, 1 Tablespoon of ground cinnamon and 1 raw egg. Also add Splenda for sweetness or you can use granulated sugar but it will increase the caloric values of the carrot pudding.
Transfer the mixture into a casserole oven-proof dish and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees until pudding is set and golden on the top - about half an hour. Allow to cool until at room temperature; add a dollop of light whipped cream for an additional 15 calories per serving.
A nice tall glass of carrot juice and couple of ginger snap cookies.
