The combination I selected for today was interesting for me. I think all of the items were new entrees, although I did have similar entrees for breakfast, lunch and the snack/dessert All in all, I was very happy with the "collection" of entrees for Friday. I am so glad I found The Fresh Diet Facebook Page back in October. You should check it out - always lots of fun, lots of contests for free meals and random giveaways for 3 day trials ....... and lots of great people there too.
Breakfast started with a Carrot Oat Muffin with Fresh Mango and Coconut Cottage Cheese. The muffin was very moist with just a hint of carrot, I did not taste any of the "oat" which in my opinion is a good thing. I am not a big fan of oats, although I do like some oatmeals - I know makes no sense. But I think it is the oat taste in some baked goods that usually has an aftertaste that I don't like. This had none of that aftertaste. I like cottage cheese, but until I started with The Fresh Diet, I was not a fan of "flavored" cottage cheeses. You know the ones I'm talking about, pineapple cottage cheese, where the pieces of pineapple seem to overtake the cottage cheese. The Coconut Cottage Cheese had a very nice flavor without being over the top.
Lunch was Whole Wheat Italian Pizza with Artichoke, Sun Dried Tomato, Alfredo and Cheddar Cheese. Again I've had The Fresh Diet Pizza before, but this is fabulous. Now if you don't like Artichokes or Sun Dried Tomato this is not the pizza for you. These flavors are very prevalent in this pizza but I enjoyed it immensely.
Snack today was a Vanilla Pecan Pudding. It was a very nice light pudding with the little bit of crunch.from the Pecan. Very nice after the pizza because it allowed my taste buds to even out, so to speak after the stronger flavors of the pizza.
Dinner was Fillet of Salmon with Spiced Pomegranate Sauce with a Whole Wheat Fuscilli Pasta and Sauteed Kale. I have to say this was another winner. I don't think I have ever had Sauteed Kale, but it was actually pretty good for a "green". The pasta was a great side to bring this all together.
Dessert was Raspberry Cheese Cake. This is yet another winner in the Cheesecake "war". Even though this cheesecake is light, all the flavor comes through nicely. I've always loved Cheesecake, but its usually the typical New York Cheesecake, which is a much firmer cheesecake. I am really coming to love all of the creamier cheesecakes from The Fresh Diet.
Besides ...... what's not to love. You have this wonderful diet plan that is working for me so well (12 lbs gone is a great thing) and I get to eat REAL food that tastes great! I get to see what its like to eat like the rich and famous (gourmet meals made under the supervision of an executive chef) and eat fabulous meals that I've selected for each day AND I'm losing weight! Now when you get to be over 50 (shhh its our secret) losing weight is not the easiest of things to do, but with The Fresh Diet I am losing weight and having lots of fun doing it.
