So I made my first Dr. Joel recipe today, black bean lettuce wraps. Verdict? Tasty! I made some black beans last night and I was happy to see this recipe in the book. Since I only made it for myself right now, I omitted the avocado, since I would have only needed an eighth of it. And we all know what happens to avocados after you cut them open...oxidization, yuck.
Anyway, the two books in this collection are a kinder, gentler form of Dr. Joel's Eat to Live. He lets you eat chicken, and even red meat, but in total moderation. The first book reads a lot like Eat to Live and I've already read that, I know what I have to do. It's just nice to have more options, and tastier ones at that.
Even though I can make boiled water taste good, this is still a daunting task. Retraining my taste buds is most definitely the hardest part of this process. The proof will be in the putting and if I can shed three pounds without Eat for Health, just think how much I will lose with it.
My eyes are on the prize...
