Day 4 on Induction

Friday, May 16, 2014

Much better planning and much better meals today! Here's what I made:

Salad mix - 1 cup each chopped broccoli, chopped cauliflower, chopped celery, and chopped cukes. Mix it all together and use 1 cup for each salad. Save the rest for the next salads. I entered it in "groupings" in the food tracker. This can be endlessly varied depending on what veggies I have when I make it. It might include carrots (not on Induction, though), mushrooms, radishes, zucchini, cabbage, red cabbage, tomatoes, etc. Just keep it something that's easily divisible so it's easier on the food tracker.

Atkins salad dressing - from The Atkins Diet Cookbook. Here's a link my SparkRecipes for it. recipes.sparkpeople.com/
Usually when I make it, I make mayo first and figure that what's left in the blender counts as the mayo in the recipe. This time I used commercial mayo.

Catfish Basting Sauce - from Easy Catfish Recipes for the Busy Cook, by TJ Mercer, a free cookbook I downloaded for my kindle. The recipe is really for basting whole catfish that you grill, and it would be much better that way. I had catfish nuggets and I don't grill, so I just cooked the catfish nuggets in butter and then poured about 1/4 recipe into the pan when they were done and mixed it up a bit. Here's the link to SparkRecipes. recipes.sparkpeople.com/

And here's what I ate today.

B - eggs scrambled in butter, herbal tea with splenda and cream
L - salad of lettuce, salad mix, chicken, Atkins dressing
S - catfish nuggets cooked in butter with basting sauce, salad of cabbage, onion and Atkins dressing
