My weight has been so laughable. Sometimes, I weigh much less than I used to at the doctor’s office, and the doctor asks, “How’s your appetite? Sometimes, patients with colitis lose a lot of weight.”
Then, my weight bounces back to a high number, and a different doctor says, “You are obese due to excessive calories.”
I can’t win!
Lately, my focus has been on eating lean and mean. Strive for less fat in my meals.
So, instead of fried chicken, I eat baked salmon, covered with a sauce consisting of 1 cup salsa, 1 cup mayonnaise, and ½ teaspoon cumin powder. Pour this sauce over 4 salmon fillets. Bake the salmon for 20 minutes at 350F.
Instead of potato salad, I eat a baked potato with a little butter, salt, and pepper. Microwave 2 potatoes, which have been pierced several times on both sides with a fork, for 5 minutes. Then, turn them over with tongs and microwave them again for 5 minutes. Slit them and add a little butter, salt, and pepper.
And instead of a tossed salad with dressing, I eat steamed broccoli with nothing on it. I place a bag of Steamable Broccoli in the microwave and nuke it for 5 minutes. Let the bag sit for a while. Then, cut it open and pour the broccoli into a bowl.
So simple. So easy. So healthy.
