Shopping at the Health Food Store, a Cleanse, and New Recipes!
Me and my cousins & uncle Mark at Thanksgiving
Me, my Mom and my Aunt JoAnn at
I didn't tell you, but because of the holiday Rev Abs members were not given food for the weekend. So,we were on our own for the first time in three months. I was apprehensive at first, but decided to break it down and make it easier. First, I saved up a couple of meals, and then starting searching sites for recipes for easy to make, healthy meals. I know I can always just have a "salad", but that tends to get repetitive and boring at home.
Yesterday I took a jaunt into Beacon and stopped at the health food store. I walked the aisles taking mental notes on food I want to try after these 90 days. Gluten free pastas, Low fat brownie mixes, all kinds of cool things.
But for now, I tried to stay within the limits of this food plan and bought firm tofu, to make curried tofu salad. Organic spinach,to make an egg white omelet. Almond milk, to put a splash into tea and coffee makes it special, and it is lowfat! ALso some spices, and a 7 day cleanse.
I had lots of veggies left over from Thanksgiving..so I mixed them all in with the tofu and created this recipe:
Curried Tofu Salad
4 teaspoons dried minced onion
1/2 cup soy mayonnaise
2 1/2 tablespoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
450 grams / 1 pound firm tofu cut into chunks
2 cups chopped vegetables, carrots, celery,peas
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Mix everything up in a bowl and cover it. Throw it in your fridge and eat it tomorrow or later today.
Not too bad. I like the flavor. The tofu got a bit mushy but it tasted fine. The spice was nice, and it made several portions so I have some for all week if I want more.
As for the cleanse, I started it today, so I will let you know how it works over the next few days.
Have a fabulous Sunday Night!!
