DAY 1: Anne and Jon’s 3-Day Diet

In an effort to get back on track after Mardi Gras, Anne and Jon try out dietician Molly Kimball’s 3 day diet.  On day one, they already cheat by putting creamer in their coffee and sneaking in a couple crawfish.  If you’d like to try the 3 day diet for yourself, click here for the menus and recipes.

 

Day 1

Breakfast: One La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious High Fiber/Low Carb 50-calorie tortilla (or any 50-80 calorie whole grain tortilla), topped with a quarter-cup shredded 2 percent cheese, melted, plus 10 strawberries

Lunch: One link of chicken sausage dipped into yellow mustard or Dijon mustard, with six Triscuit Thin Crisps (triangles, not squares; any flavor); plus a half cup cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, or red or yellow pepper sliced into strips

Snack: A half-cup low-fat cottage cheese with a quarter cup blueberries (with optional no-calorie sweetener)

Dinner: Meat sauce of three to four ounces extra-lean ground beef in red sauce with less than 55 calories and 270 mg sodium per serving (my favorite: Sal & Judy’s Heart Smart pasta sauce); serve over one cup spaghetti squash

 

Pasta Swap: Spaghetti Squash

By Chef Marc Gilberti of Ochsner Health System

Ingredients:

One 3-pound spaghetti squash

Cut squash in half lengthwise, discarding seeds. Place squash halves, cut sides down, in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; add water to dish to a depth of ½-inch. Bake at 350; for 45 minutes or until squash is tender when pierced with a fork. Remove squash from dish, and cool. Scrape inside of squash with a fork to remove spaghetti-like strands. Season as desired.
