Day 17 What to eat on Dr Fuhrman Eat to Live PlanJoin me as I blog my way through Dr. Furhman’s Eat to Live plan (again, yup I did this before and lost over 21 pounds)!  My goal is to reach my ideal weight by doing the 6 week Eat to Live plan by Dr. Fuhrman until I reach that magic number!  I will be posting what I eat each and every day (or as close as I can get) with pics!  If you are currently on the plan we would love to hear from you–please comment and post pics below!

Grapefruits are incredible for your metabolism Eat to Live what to eat on Dr Fuhrman Eat to Live plan MyMommaToldMe.comBreakfast:  Today I was so lucky to enjoy this fresh, locally-grown  grapefruit!  Yesterday, Kysen’s teacher gave us a whole bag full of these super-sweet citrus fruits!  She claimed that it’s hard for her to give away the grapefruits from her backyard tree and I told her I will always be appreciative of any she sends my way!  Being a Florida-born girl, I’ve had my share of the ruby wonders, but these were absolutely exquisite!  I noticed that I was able to go much longer than usual between breakfast and lunch–I guess the grapefruit diet was on to something!

Lunch: Mexican lettuce wrap salad (see first pic in this post).  If you haven’t noticed already, I’m in a lettuce wrap phase (just check Day 15 and Day 16 for further evidence).  This time I had to improvise because all of my butter lettuce was gone.

 Trader Joes Fat Free Refried beans on Eat to Live friendly lettuce wraps MyMommaToldMe.comI had this red oak lettuce, but the leaves are not as “cuppy” for actual wraps.  So I made fan arrangements, making sure to layer well.  I “glued” it all together with a mixture of Trader Joe’s Fat Free Refried Beans and fresh Pico de Gallo (see pic above).  I topped my two bundles with some leftover Mexican tofu (see Day 16, lunch for recipe) that I re-heated in a frying pan with some low-sodium broth and added some sliced red peppers to the mix! Then I finished off my bundles with some TJ’s Tomatillo Salsa, 1/4th Hass avocado, and chopped green onions.

Dinner:  Mixed baby greens salad with sliced cucumbers, yellow grape tomatoes, and 1/2 ounce raw pistachio pieces; dressed with Balsamic vinegar.  Trader Joe’s flaxseed tortilla with leftover (from lunch) TJ’s Fat Free Refried Beans mixed with pico de gallo, 1/3 rd cup wholly guacamole, topped with fresh salsa and chopped green onions.

Dessert: 6 fresh strawberries

Thoughts: I was too lazy today to come up with something different for dinner so I just re-purposed some of the ingredients from lunch and made it a Mexican food day!
