Ok… I have to just do this. I have been planning for so long that I am starting not to believe myself when I say I’m going to write a blog. Hi I’m Teresa. I’m fat. Pretty darn fat. According to body-mass-index charts, I am severely obese. About a year ago I had at least one week of being just plain old obese. This happened a few times in the past five years, but not this year! I have gained more than 10 pounds in the last year. This is not like me and I don’t like it. So I would really like to lose 10% of my weight. This will get rid of the 10+ pounds and a bit more besides. However I am tired of tracking food, calories, points, or grams of whatever. So I’m going to write this blog instead. My goal is to write it for one year, at least two times a week and to have lost 10% of my bodyweight and maintained that by the end of the year. I have lots of other goals and strategies and I’ll share those in upcoming posts. I’d like to share recipes too, because I like recipes.
2 c cooked veggies that you choose such as broccoli, spinach, asparagus, red pepper, green pepper, mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash-you can use leftovers or do a quick stir fry of what you have on hand
¼ to ½ c milk
¼ to ½ c chopped ham or bacon bits
1 c shredded cheese
1 t chopped garlic
1 t dehydrated chopped onion
Salt and pepper and other seasonings to taste
Preheat oven to 350°
Place muffin liners in 12 regular size muffin cups. Spray them well with nonstick baking spray.
Place the veggies and the milk in a blender or food processor. Process in pulses until the veggies are the desired size. Add one or two of the eggs if there isn’t enough liquid from the milk. Stir in all of the rest of the ingredients. If you would like larger sized veggies chop or shred them instead of using the blender or food processor. Divide the batch evenly among the muffin cups. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
These can be frozen and reheated in the microwave.
