Eating to regain weight.

Vibrant tastes are often good for stirring up an appetite that is stifled.

Mixing these tastes with higher protein foods can work very well, the balance between the tastes often creates a mouth watering experience.

Eating small meals more often is key, so having foods that are easy to pull out for a smaller meal can work well.

huh?

lol, you will figure it out.

We often will drink with a meal, no not always wine, but even a fruit juice. This can fill a tummy quickly, often before the “meal” has much of a dent in it, so limiting beverages before and during a meal is something to try for.

I have a few recipes I will post this week. Designed for high protein levels and flavour. 

so as a special bonus.. today there are two.. uhm three recipes? Well two anyway.

Salmon Mango salad.. well I had to call it something.

1 cup corn kernels tinned or fresh, frozen if not mushy.
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 avocado (cubed)
1 tin of salmon small or big, your choice. or two small…
1/2  red bell pepper, chopped, roasted would be yummy too.
1/4 red onion, diced or vidalia sweet onion.
1 large, ripe mango, chopped
4 or 6 large fresh strawberries, chopped (not 5)
Black olives or Kalamata. Optional, as many as you like.
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped… or parsley, I don’t like cilantro, or mint.
grated fresh ginger. (Ginger is a good anti-nausea food.)
Juice of one lime or two, depending on how dry things look.
hot sauce or peppers if you wish.
1/2 tsp. salt

1 or two… or three tbsp. olive oil

mix well, keep refrigerated. 

adding feta cheese to this would be yummy

Sweet Potato Salmon Cakes

cake:

small tin of salmon salmon
1 Sweet potato, peeled and cubed
3/4 cups bread crumbs
2 eggs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 green onions, chopped
1 and half tablespoons of lemon juice, or lime.
small cubed firm avocado…. but ripe.

 salt and pepper

Mayo garnish:

4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced fine
ripe avocado, mashed
Squeeze of lemon juice

hot sauce or hot peppers if you wish can be added. Salt and pepper to taste.

(yes it is like guacamole lol. )

Method:

Boil the potato until tender and drain. Mash and add the rest of the ingredients for the “cake” portion except for the avocado, mix well.  Then carefully add the avocado, so you don’t mush it up.

Form into patties and fry until golden over medium heat, perhaps 5 minutes a side. Serve with the garnish.

Don’t forget to go mmmmmmm.

Because everything is already cooked, you only need to brown them.
