Breakfast today. What day is it?

Breakfast today. What day is it?

Not sure what cycle I am on but I have still been eating clean with the exception of a few cheat days to curb my insanity. I have a lot of people inquiring about The 17 day diet so this week I will put together a few survival tips.

Scrambled egg whites (one yoke) spinach, peppers, onions, chicken breast, salsa. Cup of raspberries. Greek yogurt with sugar free jam and chia seeds.

Tasty Egg Bake

Tasty Egg Bake

I used 2 ramekins sprayed with EVOO olive oil spray. Instead of using the entire egg, I opted for 3 egg whites and 1 egg yolk. I added sautéed onions, red, green, yellow peppers … Baby spinach leaves and sliced baby tomatoes. Seasoned with dry basil, cayenne pepper, paprika and 21 seasoning. Topped with Parmesan or cheddar cheese. Bake in 400 degree oven (place ramekins on baking sheet) for 20-25 minutes. Add other ingredients for variety. Be creative!

Add egg whites, handful of spinach and cut Roma tomatoes or cut cherry tomatoes. Scramble. Top with fat free feta cheese and Green olive tapenade (Trader Joe’s) … Use any tuna in a can with water. Season to taste. Try to avoid salt.  Use a seasoning blend that does not contain salt.

The Shrimp and Grits Recipe

The Shrimp & Grits recipe

So many people have asked for this recipe but unfortunately there isn’t one. But here are the ingredients that you will need.

Hints:
*Sauté the shrimp in garlic EVOO
*Add milk or cream to grits
*Cook grits according to directions
*Trader Joe’s grits have lots of texture. Use less grits than directions call for
*Season the grits with Lawrys, white pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika and vegetable seasoning while they are cooking (add as much cheese as you desire)
*Spread grits in a baking pan. I usually line with non-stick foil
*Let set for a few minutes until grits are stiff
*Top with shrimp, cheese, parsley and cayenne pepper
*Bake in 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes
*Let dish set for 10 minutes
*Enjoy with Trader Joes’s croissants
