For some reason, I am on a sandwich kick. Maybe because it is warming up here finally and salads and sandwiches just sound good. Just returning from Whole Foods ( I can’t believe I even have recyclable bags now), I went with the intent to buy lots of fresh veggies. We are trying to cut down on gluten and meat during the week, so we can go crazy on the weekends. I came home with several new items today, such as gluten free tortilla wraps which I am going to make bean and cheese nachos, and Ezekiel brand, cinnamon and raisin English muffins. So I have lots of new items to test out this week. DId I mention that I even bought fresh collard greens? For those of you who know me, usually my grocery basket is full of cocoa, butter, cream cheese and Dr Peppers. Tonight, we are having grilled tilapia with grilled veggies. Randy will be shocked. Whole foods even have soy ice cream, all different flavors of which I have come to really like. Trader Jo’s have soy cherry-chocolate chip soy ice cream, which I could sit and eat the whole half gallon in one sitting.
Because Randy is suppose to be watching how much gluten he is having, I have decided to help him out. Tomorrow, I will be packing him a Ezekiel muffin BLAT. (bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato)
Just fry up 6 pieces of bacon until crisp. (3 pieces on each sandwich) This will all make 2 sandwiches Drain on paper towel. Slice a fresh tomato and an avocado. Wash 2 pieces of butter lettuce and wipe dry. Spread a little basil Pesto on each side of the muffin. Stack the bacon, lettuce and tomato and avocado and place muffin top over the BLAT.
At the end of the week, I will let you know if cutting back on the gluten and meat help us loose a couple of pounds. Since we don’t want to loose to much weight, we will end our evening eatting all the soy ice cream. /p>
BLAT’s might be the next big diet food. (I wish) Wonder if I will loose weight if I eat 3 of them?
Want to loose some fat? Just eat a BLAT! sorry, it’s corny but I love that new word!
