Geeky spouse and I signed up for a 3 month program at the Y to finally get some of this extra weight off. It’s a great program with tons of extra classes for beginners and a food plan. The food plan is the Fat Smash Diet. While I put no faith in diets, this seems to be a program where you eat gluten-free vegan for phase 1. No pasta, avocados, white potatoes, sugar, caffeine, or wine. Phase one is 9 days, so it should be pretty easy.
The sugar will be the hardest part for me, but you get all the fruit you want. So I have splurged and gone off my buying local seasonal produce to keep my sweet fix. I have cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, and grapes. That should keep me busy enough to actually become less dependent on sugar. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Breakfast of the week: Oatmeal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk with banana, apple, or blueberries
Sweet of the week: slow cooker fruit (Similar to the drunken apples but without all the sugar and alcohol)
Lunch Soup of the week: slow cooker meatless tortilla soup
** Salads with each meal **
Monday: black bean burger lettuce wrap tacos topped with shredded carrots and salsa, served with Spanish brown rice
Tuesday: smoked tofu over assorted veggies – made in slow cooker (recipe to follow on healthy slow cooking)
Wednesday: veggie fried rice with tofu and pineapple
Thursday: spaghetti squash with tempeh ‘meat balls’ and marinara sauce
Friday: veggie chili taco salad
Saturday: Asian tofu lettuce wraps with stir fried veggies
Sunday: homemade veggie burger over brown rice and asst veggies
