Day 1 South Beach Diet Dinner
I had 2 overeasy eggs cooked in olive oil, salad greens, and a salad dressing that I threw together.
Like the Snack Buddy (almond butter and celery), I need to consult the book. I haven't done South Beach in a few years and forget the details. Today I did not eat any obvious bread or sugar.
Hopefully Phase I Salad Dressing:
In a Vitamix or high speed blender, mix
1/4 cup tahini
1.4 cup white miso paste
few tablespoon of lemon juice
handfull shredded carrots
swig of sushi vinegar
swig of olive oil
Blend on medium high speed for a minute. I would guess that this makes at least 4 servings at 100 calories each. I haven't done the math for sure but it feels about right.
I added a sprinkle of hot red pepper flakes to my serving and did not need any additional salt.
Today felt pretty good, as is usual on the first day of a new diet. full of intent and enthusiasm. I did not eat anything that I didn't think was on the list. I did not over eat. So far so good.
