I hope you're not sick of wacky diet recipes. If you are-- too bad! I'm not. Today's diet recipes are from one of my favorite sources-- home ec teachers:
I'm a little bit confused about how the recipes were categorized, though. For example, the next two recipes are from two different chapters: one from the low-cal chapter and one from the weight gain chapter. Which one is which?
The recipe for lean chicken breasts stir-fried in minimal oil with non-starchy vegetables is billed as a weight gain formula. It even has a reasonable serving size, dividing the two chicken breasts among four people! Maybe Susie Devoll forgot to add that the whole thing is supposed to be served on top of an enormous mound of fried noodles and/or rice?
Not all of the categorizations defy logic, though. I'll bet you can guess what chapter this recipe comes from:
I may have been most fascinated with the high protein chapter because that's a current diet trend and I always wonder how people will cram extra protein anywhere they can find a space. Here's an idea that I still see in "new" recipes:
Other high-protein recipes, however, seem largely abandoned:
Nutritious Lemonade, anyone? Or even better, to reflect the egginess of this recipe, "Lemon Nog"?
No matter the name, I think I'll pass.
Happy Wednesday, and you have my permission to work on padding those hips!
