New Recipes

I like getting back to the Fat Smash diet when I need a detox. So here is what we tried today.

Breakfast Blackberry Oatmeal:
2 servings:
1 cup oats
2 cups water
2 cups blackberries
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup Milk

Boil water and salt. Add oats and berries, turn to medium and cook for 6 minutes (stirring occasionally). Take off heat and serve after a few minutes of sitting. Serve in 2 bowls and add 1/2 cup milk to each bowl.

Snack: 2 servings Rice and Bean Garden Salad
2-3 cups fresh garden lettuce(I had butter bib and ice berg from my garden)
1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup cucumbers
1 cup brown rice
1 cup great northern beans(white beans)
2 tablespoons light zesty italian dressing

Lunch: 2 servings
Tony Chachere White Beans and Rice

1 cup Greath Northern White Beans
1 cup brown rice(I used the frozen rice from Costco)
Tony Chachere's-Sprinkle to taste
(I added Tabasco sauce to mine for more spice)

Snack: Peach
white peach

Savory Wild Rice Pilaf

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup uncooked Wild Rice(can use wheat bulgar)
1/2 cup chopped Red, Yellow, Green or Orange Bell Pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion(any kind)
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
2 cups water
2 tsp chicken boullion
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning(you can use sage)
1 can of chic peas

Heat oil and add peppers, onion, garlic, rice and saute until onions are tender-about 5 minutes. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 45 minutes. If you substitute wheat bulgur 15 minutes or check times for any other sub.

Add can of chic peas and serve. YUM! You can do less oil if you want. I can't wait to eat leftovers. The house smelled sooo good, I just wanted to eat it the entire cooking time.
