Breakfast was a Spinach and Feta Cheese Egg Bake with Fresh Papaya. It a really nice dish. I have never figured out how to pick the "right" Papaya in the supermarket. Whenever I've tried its either been either too ripe or too under ripe. With the Fresh Diet - its been perfect every time I've had this fruit.
Lunch was a Roasted Eggplant & Havarti Cheese Sandwich on Whole Wheat Bread with Bell Pepper Pesto and Baby Lettuce. I think if I wasn't already married - I would be proposing the The Fresh Diet bread maker! Every single piece of bread I've had has a nice flavor (yes the whole wheat can have nice flavor) without the aftertaste I've found in most supermarket brands. This sandwich was interesting. The Eggplant was a little tough/chewy but not inedible. The Havarti Cheese was very nice. The Bell Pepper Pesto was soooo good - I will have to try to recreate this one. Although the menu said baby lettuce for the sandwich, I didn't get any - but it was good without it. I toasted my bread (although you don't have to) and then put it in the microwave to melt the cheese, but I should have just put it in the toaster oven to give it a little melt - as you can see its a little "over-melted" but I managed to scrap them up back onto the sandwich.
Snack was a Sugar Free Banana Bar with Cream Cheese Frosting. This was a nice bar, but the cream cheese frosting was a little thick and overbearing. I think if the frosting was a little lighter in texture it would have been perfect. But I will say that once again, I have no idea how this could be sugar free - there is absolutely NO aftertaste that you sometimes get with sugar free desserts.
Dinner was a Grilled Jumbo Shrimp with Lemon, Pepper, Garlic Sauce with Meyer Lemon Roasted Red Beets and Green Beans with Walnuts and Garlic. If you like Shrimp - THIS is a perfect entree. I absolutely LOVE the Meyer Lemon Roasted Beets. The green beans could have used more garlic - in my opinion but I really love the taste of garlic (no I'm not Italian) so you can never have enough for me.
Dessert was Cherry Vanilla Cheese Cake. I am telling you - The Fresh Diet just has a way with Cheesecake. I could seriously have cheesecake every day and never get tired of it. The fact that they have so many flavors and they are so nice and light just makes it a wonderful way to end the day. I forgot to take a picture of this one - but I didn't forget to eat it ....... but it was perfection.
The only thing I can say is ....... Where have you been all my life? If this is a diet (and it can be) it is THE diet of the century. If this is a dream ...... PLEASE I DON'T WANT TO WAKE UP.
