Surviving Your New Eating Habits

Chia seeds are great to add to yogurt or salads.  Get the extra fiber you need.  6g per serving.
imageI do not use salt to season my food.  Top your meats, eggs or salads with these items for maximum flavor.  South American Salsa is from Costco, Chipotle Salsa, tapenade and satay peanut sauce are from Trader Joe’s.
imageSeason meats with any seasoning of your choice.  Try not to use salt. Use sea salt if you must (moderation). You can purchase the seasonings from anywhere. The house blend is from Target (Archer Farms).  I use low sodium soy sauce to season spinach when I sauté it. I use cayenne pepper on everything; it taste great on eggs, yams and seafood.
image On The 17 day diet, you will eat lots of salads.  But you can not use salad dressing.  I mix balsamic vinegar with dijon mustand, or olive oil with balsamic or use the light champagne vinaigrette from Trager Joe’simageSince you will be axing sugar from your diet, you can use these sweeteners.  Use Stevia In The Raw to sweeten tea or coffee, put in plain greek yogurt or to sweeten oatmeal. I like Stevia In The Raw because it is the closest taste to sugar.  No calories.  Use the unsweetened cocoa (or use cocao) if you need a chocolate fix.  I add this to the greek yogurt with a packet of Stevia and it reminds me of a chocolate treat.  Use agave if you do not care for the Stevia.  But beware of the extra calories it has.  The strawberry fruit jam is key to sweetening the plain yogurt.  I use 2 TB (60 calories).
