A Little Diversion
At first glance you might think this post is about cats, flowers, or photography; but it has nothing to do with any of those things. The photo is simply a diversion.
In all honesty, I am not much of a foodie, or that crazy about cooking; although you might think otherwise considering the number of posts that reference the topic. It's just that eating healthy and feeling good are way too important to ignore. With that said, I hope this photo has been a pleasant distraction because now I want to share a few more thoughts about the Flat Belly Diet.
Here are a couple healthy recipes from the Pocket Guide. Both are very simple to make and quite satisfying—and under 400 calories each.
Pumpkin Crunch Cereal: Mix 1 cup Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs with 1 cup fat-free milk and 1 small sliced banana. Top with 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds. Total calories is 393.
Tapenade Pasta: Mix 3/4 cup cooked whole wheat pasta, 2 tablespoons black olive tapenade, 2 teaspoons olive oil, 3 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup roasted red peppers. Microwave to warm through and melt the cheese. Total calories is 362.
One observation that I've made since starting Week 3 is: I started losing track of where I was at on the diet when I began to shift meals around. That is allowed but can be a little confusing. The flexibility is nice though.
