Welcome to Day 2
Broccoli Scrambled Eggs, 1 Slice of Whole Grain Toast and an Orange
- For 1 serving, heat 2 tsp olive oil in a skillet until hot.
- Saute some chopped onions (I used green onions and red onions) until soft.
- Add in about 1/2 cup chopped broccoli and 1 tbsp water. Steam then saute broccoli until tender. I added a touch of Ms. Dash herb and garlic seasoning.
- Mix 2 eggs with 2 tsp water and 2 tbsp finely shredded Parmesan.
- Add eggs to broccoli mix and stir until set and scrambled.
Salmon Pasta Salad
- Prepare whole wheat penne or rotini according to the package directions. Drain, cool and set aside.
- For one 213g can of salmon mix 6 tsp olive oi, 6 tsp lemon juice and 3 tsp Dijon mustard
- Add the drained can of salmon with skin and bones removed
- Mix in 1/2 cup white kidney beans. I did this mix ahead of time and put it in the fridge.
- When you're ready to serve heat up 2 ounces of the pasta until warm.
- Toss in a few cherry or grape tomatoes.
- You can heat up the salmon bean mix a bit if you like. Toss in about 1/4 of the mix and add to the pasta.
- Serve the pasta mix on a bed of spinach.
Chicken Tacos with Coleslaw
- Saute diced chicken breasts (one per serving) in a pan with a little bit of olive oil until cooked through
- Add in 1 tsp of tomato paste and 1 tsp salsa per breast. Sprinkle in some chili powder, more if you like it spicy! Saute for 2 minutes
- Add in some green onion, cilantro or parsley and a good squeeze of lime juice. Turn off the heat and let sit while you get everything else together.
- Set up 2 whole grain, preferably corn tortillas per plate. Spread each tortilla with 1 -2 tbsp low fat refried beans.
- Spoon about 1/4 cup of chicken breast mixture on the each tortilla
- Top with shredded romaine lettuce, 1 tbsp salsa and 2 tsp low fat sour cream.
- You can buy the prepackaged coleslaw or you can shred some cabbage and carrots yourself.
- Mix with some plain yogurt, a bit of sour cream, a little horseradish, a dash of Dijon mustard, lime juice, chili powder and cider vinegar.
- Make ahead and let the coleslaw sit so the flavours can really come together.
