Official Day 1 Starts Tomorrow



Guess what I did today??? Yep, I went grocery shopping. I can really start following my diet plan. So, here's what tomorrow looks like:

Breakfast: Strawberries 1 cup, one scrambled egg, cinnamon tea and 16.9 oz of water.

Lunch: Cream of Celery Soup* (homemade) and tuna with spinach in it. 16.9 oz water (The diet plan wrapped the tuna in lettuce).

Dinner: Peppered steak** and onions, spinach salad with a drizzle of dressing (Italian)
1 cup cinnamon tea
I am looking forward to this.

* Recipe for Cream of Celery Soup.
Ingredients
6 oz of celery washed and diced
5 oz leeks, trimmed and sliced (I have green onions)
1 clove garlic
1T soy sauce
10 oz vegetable stock (or use bullion)
1/2 tsp. celery seed
5 oz skim milk (I have 2% so will make allowances for it in the calorie count)

Combine all ingredients but the milk in a large sauce pan or small stock pot. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 min, until the vegetables are soft. Remove from heat. Add  milk and run through a blender until smooth. Serve hot or cold.

**Recipe for Peppered Steak
4.25 oz lean ribeye steak with all fat trimmed
1/4 tsp crushed or cracked peppercorns
1 small yellow onion, peeled and thinly sliced
2 small tomatoes halved
3.5 oz frozen spinach
1 tsp olive oil

Coat the bottom of a skillet with the olive oil, then add the tomatoes and onions and cook over low heat turning as needed. Until browned and soft. (If they begin to stick add a couple tablespoons of water). While they're cooking rub steak well with the cracked peppercorns.
When the veggies are nearly done, add the steak and cook to your desired doneness (about 7 min for medium well) Turn midway so it browns evenly.

Place spinach in a small microwave-safe container, add 1T water, and microwave for 4-6 min. Serve steak topped with onions and accompanied by the tomatoes and spinach.


Hope you enjoy.
