So I’m done with month one of my Pescatarian diet. It has surprisingly been easy. In one month, I had salmon twice and shrimp once. Otherwise, no meat. My stomach feels flatter and I am pretty certain I’ve lost some weight. I ordered a scale so will report back if I have or not. My migraines aren’t a lot better but they aren’t worse. On the food front, a big miss for me is Boca Crumbles. They smell funny, taste funny and tore my tummy up. All of the Morningstar products I’ve had so far are the opposite: No weird smell, taste good and no bad side effects. I am not as hungry as I used to be, and I thought eating this way would cause me to feel very hungry all the time. It’s the opposite.
I hope you all have a wonderful Superbowl Sunday! Love, HauteAngel
Thought I’d show you my cool mouse pad. I made it on Shutterfly.
BREAKFAST: Scrambled eggs with ketchup, can’t eat them without and a biscuit. Haven’t had a biscuit for a long time. It was ok. I actually like the flax cereal and almond milk better.
LUNCH: I had birthday potluck lunch “leftovers” at work today. A small salad, more of that great citrus pecan quinoa salad and our favorite desert, Chocolate Bread Pudding. An attorney I work with is such a great chef, she would make Gordon Ramsey quake with fear. I found a recipe for Chocolate Bread Pudding I thought I’d share:
1 (1-pound) loaf French or Italian bread, cubed
3 cups milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup coffee flavored liqueur
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons almond extract
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
6 eggs, lightly beaten
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, grated
Whipped cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish and place the bread in the dish. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, and liqueur. Using another bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar, and cocoa powder and mix well. Add the sugar mixture to the milk mixture and mix well. Add the vanilla and almond extract, and cinnamon to the beaten eggs. Combine the egg mixture to the milk mixture and mix well.
Stir the grated chocolate into the mixture. Pour the mixture over the cubed bread in the pan. Let the mixture stand, stirring occasionally for approximately 20 minutes or until bread absorbs most of the milk mixture. Bake pudding for 1 hour or until set. Check pudding by inserting a knife through the middle and it should come out clean.
Serve the pudding warm, or refrigerate and serve chilled with whipped cream if desired.
DINNER: Brown rice, 2 Morningstar mushroom burgers
Tomorrow’s Friday! YEAH. Love yall, Kathryn (aka “HauteAngel”)
