First up, this crazy cucumber from my local HFS, Fiesta Nutrition Center.
The slices were so pretty!
And now for dinner...we still have a salad most nights with our meal. That's one lesson that stuck from the bootcampy phase of Eat To Live! These days I add sneaky naughty bits like croutons on occasion though!
The main course: Shirataki Noodles with Vegetables! This recipe is based on Spinach Fettucine & Vegetables from Live Longer Cookbook. I grabbed this cookbook at a used book sale and it has a nice Meatless section.
I subbed the tofu noodles for the fettucine, and it was a perfect fit. Shirataki Noodles are 40 calories and 1 gram of fat for the entire 2-serving bag (!!) so they are much preferred at our house over traditional pasta. They are a different texture than pasta, but I've found that using the angel hair variety really cuts down on any textural issues. I also put in extra zucchini, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and fresh herbs, cuz I like my sauce zesty!
