After the huge wakeup call regarding what we had been eating, I had to rethink my entire food shopping excursions and also all my meal planning.
In Keeping Fit 2, I discussed our new breakfast choices, today I will talk about our revised lunches and dinners.
Based on Frank Pirris’ food list, my lunch plan is as follows:
Home-made Beef or Chicken soup with added butternut squash or Sweet Potato and also a legume such as lentils, black beans, Garbanzo Beans (Chick peas). I avoid adding strong flavoured vegetables like carrot, turnip, or celery until almost the end of the cooking period. I could also add pearl barley to the stew. However, adding the barley would cancel the slice of rye.
I make these thick, stew-like soups in the crock pot so we could have them for several days in a row.
To this, I could add a single slice of light rye with cheese, ham, roast beef or chicken to be grilled in the new panini maker (which has never had a piece of actual Panini in it).
