Patricia, the author shares how she went on a "vacation" from watching her weight, and gained ten pounds!
There are interviews with people on their way of eating, as well as descriptions of her own experiences.
She describes her lobster epiphany in a restaurant, where she became a vegetarian.
Her partner, Al, is a carnivore and he describes how a vegetarian and a carnivore can live, cook and eat happily together. Patricia says, "The theory is that our bodies are programmed to be at a set weight point. If we want to go below it, we have to fight against it. Most popular diets work. If you stick to them you will lose weight, but keeping the weight down takes mindful eating, cooking and planning. And no nibbling between meals!!!!!"
Tomato Teacup Snack tastes oh, so comforting, especially when a chill is in the air.
1 vine ripened tomato
1/16 teaspoon kosher salt
1/16 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon fresh (or dried) chopped basil
1/16 teaspoon onion powder
A few grains crushed chili pepper
1 oz. fresh Mozzarella cheese
Core the tomato. Place it in a micro safe teacup. Add salt, pepper, basil, onion powder and chili pepper to the open center. Chop the mozzarella into 1/4” pieces. Stuff it in. Put a small plate over the cup because it will spatter. Micro 2 minutes. Mix it up good with a fork. Eat hot. One quick succulent snack.
Manchego Cheese Spinach Toastie is crispy, magic. Great to make while entertaining friends.
1 oz. Manchego cheese
7 baby spinach leaves
(rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel)
Stack the spinach leaves and roll them up like a tiny towel, then cut quarter inch slices crosswise to get slivers. Spread the slivers in the center of a micro safe dessert dish. Cut the cheese into five slices and lay them in a star pattern on top of the spinach. Leave a hole in the center to fill when the cheese melts. Micro for two minutes. Use a fork or a knife to pry the Toastie off the plate while it is hot and removes in one piece, ready to eat.
Zucchini Soft Chips Microed easy, quick, irresistible veggie to eat anytime, alone or with friends.
Rinse and dry the zucchinis. Cut off the ends. Cut 1/4” slices. Paint a flat micro safe dinner plate, with olive oil.
Arrange the slices on the plate. Paint the surface of the zucchini slices. I use a silicone brush. Add salt and pepper. Micro the plate for 15 minutes. Check after 10 minutes, because microwave ovens vary. The chips should be soft and browned when done. Transfer to a smaller plate, and eat warm. If it cools off, pop it back in the micro for 10 seconds. Or refrigerate until ready to eat, then micro for 30 seconds.
