I saw it on Oprah! so it's gotta be true: A whole wheat/high fiber diet will cure all your ills--it will make you lose weight, it will prevent cancer, it will smooth away the wrinkles on your face, it will save your soul. It is the new black. A new 2-part, high-low, regimen begins at em manor.
Part 1--high fiber. Dinner tonight is a fabulous baked ziti casserole, with whole wheat pasta (fiber, 7 grams). This stuff can taste like sticks and twigs. Nevertheless, I've been looking forward to it all day, because I'm tired of chasing that low-carb Atkins thing--I miss pasta! So I made the sauce last night--browned the beef and hot Italian sausage in olive oil and garlic, then sluiced in the marinara. Tonight, I will build the casserole--cook the pasta, combine with sauce, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses in an oven dish and bake till the mozzarella cheese on top is a bubbly golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool, serve, and YUMMmmm.
Part 2--low beer. As part of the regimen, I am also limiting the amount of beer I will drink. I know, GAH! But in it's place, I will substitute a healthful Grey Goose vodka with a splash of tonic and wedge of lime--MMM-mm, and good for you too!
Look for me on the Oprah! show--I might just write the next healthy-living how-to.
