Low Calorie Sweet Potato Tacos

I can officially say I have lost 80 pounds. What a task but well worth it. Now just 25 more to go. The road to weight loss "is long, with many a winding turn." (Thank you, Hollies). But I cannot begin to express to you how worth it the dieting has been. So every day, I am sharing with you a how-I-did-it diet recipe of the day to help if you are overweight (or cook for someone who is). Most of my recipes feature food swaps, substitutes and switches to enjoy the same meal as the family but reduce fat, sodium and calories. Today's treat: Lowfat Low Calorie Yum-Yum Sweet Potato Tacos. I couldn't find a picture so until I do, you'll have to look at me.   Diet Recipe of the Day Low Calorie, Yum-Yum Sweet Potato Tacos

Low Calorie, Low-Fat Veggie-Based Entree Recipes

I'm dieting to lose 100 pounds. It's a journey, but I'm down almost 80
pounds. Along the way, I've created and tweaked recipes to subtract calories and fat and add superfoods (fruit, vegetables, lean meat, alternative protein). Here are homemade low-cal, low-fat entrees that are cheap and quick.

Super Slimming Sweet and Sour Scramble: Heat olive oil (one teaspoon per serving). Dice and saute your favorite lean meat, diced. Chicken breast is lowest in calories with 100 per 4-ounce serving. Or or use fish: salmon, cod, pollock or yellow fin tuna steaks. Or try tofu or miso for a vegetarian option. Add diced sweet potatoes, onions, multi-colored peppers, purple cabbage, leeks, pea pods and broccoli. Season with celery seed, garlic, Bragg's Liquid Amino (healthy soy sauce alternative), lemon juice, red pepper and ginger. Cook just till meat is done. Add a cup of orange or apple juice and pineapple bits.  Low Calorie, Low-Fat Superfood Entree Recipes, Cheap and Easy

Michigan Fox Barn Winery--High Schmaltz, Taste, Meh

We stopped at the Fox Barn Winery in mid-west Michigan along the lake near Mears and Silver Lake this weekend. I've lived along Lake Michigan all my life. The wine thing is a new venture for our once auto-based economy. It's gaining popularity. I liked some of the things about the winery, but not so much the wine. Here's my review. Michigan Fox Barn Winery--High Schmaltz, Taste, Meh
