Bistro MD: Day 3
I try to eat 3 'meals' a day, but it can be so hard to find those 10-20 minutes to sit down and actually eat; and the very thought of a washed out cardboard nutrition bar is unappealing enough to convince me to skip meals. Usually this means forgoing breakfast, but sometimes lunch makes the cut as well, then I'm left trying to 'make up' at dinner. Any nutritionist will tell you loading up on calories in the evening is not the way to go! Our bodies process food slower and more efficiently in our sleep, making weight loss near impossible with skipped meals and decreased metabolism. Waking up to my doctor designed gourmet breakfast with BistroMD is like a mini-vacation. Straight from the microwave today's Tomato, Ricotta, Spinach Omelet was enticing in aroma and texture. The giant white fluffy omelet was plumply stuffed with a lightly spiced tomato, onion, spinach filling, and served alongside soft baked apple slices in a balsamic glaze. These apples were a tad less sweet than the traditional apple walnut Waldorf blend, and complemented the spinach perfectly.
