Beefy Tomato Stroganof

Day Five on the Cabbage Soup Diet

This is when I can add ten-twenty ounces of meat into my diet, it's a good thing I set aside the meat from day one when I made the soup. I should eat six tomatoes (That is a lot of tomatoes for one person!)
I also need to drink a lot of water on this day. There is a whole lot of eating in this diet. I did not eat the tomatoes and very little bit of meat. I cannot do more without feeling stuffed.

I prepared my day the night before. I cleaned out four medium size tomato for the bowls and placed them in the fridge. I made the tomato juice for the morning. (Christopher helped me with the picture)

Breakfast: 1 C. hot broth and
1 glass of fresh tomato juice:
I used the inside of the tomatoes for my juice, bottled water, and freshly squeezed lemon.

Lunch: Bowl C.S., diced tomato and Tapatio sauce.

Dinner: Beef Stroganof  with Tomato Bowl. (I should have taken a picture after I cut into the tomato and let the creamy sauce run over the spinach leaves.)

Saute meat with onions add some of the broth from the soup. Lower the heat and add plain Greek yogurt (Just cook it long enough to heat up the yogurt and still look creamy. Otherwise it will look curdled). No flour can be used to thicken the sauce but that's okay, because the broth is what I am using for the dressing on the spinach once I cut into the tomato.

Fill the tomato bowl with the stroganof.  Serve on a bed of spinach.

Snack: None. I was too full to eat a snack.

My sons and I enjoyed the Tomato and Beef Stroganof for dinner. (Kristen is vegetarian). I was not able to eat all the tomatoes called for but I had plenty.

I weighed myself this morning lost one pound. But I am not discouraged, I am going to finish the seven days through because I have lost another 1/4 inch. Yay!!

Your visit made my day!
