I have decided to transform my lifestyle of eating. To help me, I have selected to follow the South Beach Diet. For the next two weeks I will do Phase 1. I chose the South Beach Diet because, while there are components that are temporary like a diet (like the 2 weeks of Phase 1), overall the South Beach Diet is a way of life.
Today, for breakfast I had a two egg omelet with red peppers and mushrooms over a bed of spinach. It was rather tasty.
For lunch I made Cajun Shrimp Lettuce Wrap Sandwiches. I used some leftover shrimp that I sauteed last week.
And for dinner, the girls wanted tacos, so I made ground chicken tacos. Recently I discovered that my mini food processor can quickly turn chicken breasts into ground chicken. I used this simple recipe to make the seasoning. I put the chicken taco on top of a bed of spinach leaves, added some tomatoes and salsa verde.
Overall, I am craving some carbs – crackers, chips, and bread. These 2 weeks are going to be a challenge.
