Tried something new today. I bought rice bread at the grocery store. It was four dollars a loaf. I just haven't had good luck with sandwhich bread so it's easier for me to splurge once in awhile. Here's the recipe:
Toast your bread.
Spread a little soft goat cheese or other btd compliant cheese.
Scoop out the avocado and slice.
Sprinkle the avocado with lemon juice
Lightly salt it - maybe just the tiniest bit of pepper (an avoid, technically)
Layer on one onion slice - any kind you prefer
Place a handful of alfalfa sprouts on top.
Pile it all together and -- enjoy!
I was pleasantly surprised. Since alfalfa is a beneficial, that's what I am playing with for the next couple of days. I've got a spinach and alfafa salad recipe I hope to try for dinner.
Dinner last night was a pleasant success as well. Frozen chopped steak was grilled up for the O's and served with frozen green beans, butter and salt. The green beans were boiled in as little water as possible. I would have preferred them steamed and now that the husband has enjoyed them, I will try to steam them next time. Keep in mind that he really likes the canned green beans - which has very little flavor.
The A's had some sauteed onions, garlic, and yellow squash cooked with white rice. At the last minute, I threw in some leftover canned wild salmon and soy sauce. It tasted great! A little applesauce on the side pleased everyone.
I did discover one thing a bit on the negative side. I am neglecting my protein/carbohydrate need. I feel like I should be eating more vegetables, but when my meal contains only veggies or only grains, I suddenly need a nap. Good eats.
