I can't stand it anymore!!
It's not possible!!
I can't do this!!
Drama ..... in the 1st degree.
I'm sure some of you might agree with me when it comes to dieting. I've read several blogs about people going on diets and losing 2 - 3 kgs in a week. I hate you.
Dieting makes one (me) crabby, negative, depressed (not really), dramatic for sure.
I've been given several suggestions from eating for my blood type to having just fruits for breakfast. I've tried the Atkins diet .... that worked, really it did, but coming from a society and upbringing of having rice or noodles at least 5 times a week, it finally turned into a raging crave of carbs that had me bingeing on an equivalent to 4 cups of rice in one sitting ... not good.
I do the exercises, mainly tennis about 3 times a week, less now having been afflicted with rotator cuff tendonitis.
Cut the sugar. Yup, doing that as well. (I am so craving for a cheesecake right now.)
I can't last. My will power is weak .... especially when it comes to food. Being a food blogger doesn't help, unless I start blogging about healthy stuff. Yeah, right.
Forgive me if I don't visit as regularly as before. This is a compliment to you. You know your food posts make me drool and this really is not helping.
So, while I still have some semblance of will power left in me, I'm trying to cut the carbs, come up with some energy food, enough to get a good tennis game going and not get thrashed by my fellow players.
This one is freakin' easy and it has enough stuff in it to satisfy my cravings for a while ..... until the next meal? Sigh ....
*Note: Not recommended for dieters.
3 eggs beaten
1/2 cup milk
pinch of salt
ground black pepper
coarsely chopped bacon (lean bacon if you must)
2 small waxy potatoes, sliced thinly (I know, I know, potatoes are hi-carb. Cheez, lighten up, will ya? I did say "small")
a handful of coarsely chopped rocket leaves
Preheat oven to 200˚C.
Line a 7" X 7" non-stick baking tin with parchment. You don't have to do this. I just thought it would be easier to lift out when it's done.
Line the bottom with the sliced poatoes, overlapping them.
Place the chopped bacon and rocket over that.
In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, milk and salt.
Pour that into baking tin over the bacon and rocket.
Bake for about 25 mins.
