Recipe for the brussel sprouts
1- two pound bag of brussel sprouts = 8 cups = 560 calories
2 tbsp of EVOO - 68 calories
6 teaspoons of Highland Sugarworks maple syrup, courtesy of my cousin from Vermont :)1/4 cup is 200 calories... so.... there are 48 teaspoons in a cup, so 12 tsp in a quarter cup, so i used an eight of a cup... 100 calories!!!! whew... seriously? :)
728 calories for 8 cups of BS... lol :)
salt and papper to taste, put in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. roasted to perfection :)
Couscous was a little less than a cup of couscous : a whopping 608 calories!!! whoa!
a cup of mint - about 20 calories
2 roma tomatoes - 60 calories
4 cups of tabouleh for 688 calories
And tilapia, seasoned with coriander, salt and pepper, in the oven at 375* for 12-15 minutes... about 100 calories per serving
So, my plate can have 100 cal of fish,
1 cup of BS ;) 91 cal,
and 1 cup of tabouleh - 172 cal
A total of 363 calories for supper. And I had water to drink.
Ok, The tilapia was really nice!!!! Coriander and cumin are my two favorites spices to put on fish. The coriander by itself was a nice change. The tabouleh was...well, tabouleh. Minty-tomatoey tabouleh. Last but not least, the brussel sprouts. They had great flavor, but I have to be honest and tell you that I really do not like brussel sprouts. They are good for you, so I ate them anyway... And for only 363 calories for supper, I am extremely full.
I would love comments if there is anyone out there reading this stuff :) I have a request for how to make homemade bread. I hope to do that sometime tomorrow. Til next time :)
