Time to Get Serious about Weight Loss
This morning for a late morning brunch (around 11 am), I made Ginny's English muffin for my DH and I, scrambled eggs, bacon (almost always do this the lazy way in the microwave oven on a plate between paper towels), fried tomato and Japanese eggplant which I dipped in egg wash and then in some seasoned leftover lumped-together bake mixes, which I always have handy in the freezer for breading or fillings for hamburgers or tuna patties or meatloaves. That was all I needed for the day until this evening when I had something really small and high fat with a cup of tea. I will often do that instead of the complete no eating rule to the next day. This basically stills my appetite, slows the weight loss some , but keeps me happy and in no hunger "pain".
The only change I made to Ginny's English muffin was instead of the 1 1/2 tablespoons ground almonds, I used leftover bake mix (I wasn't sure which one it was), and it tasted great and had those lovely little holes for the butter!! I liked the one half with butter and peanut butter. I toasted the halves in a nonstick pan first. Oh wait a minute, I also substituted 1 tsp light-tasting olive oil for the coconut oil. I think mine has gone rancid, as I can't stand the flavor.
