You Might Really Love Fish With This On It

I took my husband out to his favorite seafood place for his birthday yesterday and I had this marvelous and delicious dip for my fish. I am not really a fish fan, but I eat it to stay thin. But, if I just have a little bit of this dip for my fish every time I eat it, I could eat fish all of the time. It was called, “Aioli.” I never had it before in my life, but I am now a convert. I looked it up online and I found a recipe that is easy. Remember not to use too much. It is for flavor, not a meal, in itself.

Garlic–Cilantro Aioli Dip
2 cloves garlic, cut into slivers
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup mayonnaise


Garlic–Cilantro Aioli Dip

Put garlic in olive oil and set aside at room temperature to steep for about 30 minutes.
Remove garlic, and combine the oil with fresh lime juice, cilantro, and mayonnaise. Add salt to taste.



Day 2 of the Plateau Diet

The second day of my Plateau diet (see yesterday’s blog for info).  I lost 1.4 pounds since yesterday.  I am surviving ok.  I did it again today.  I think I should be good by tomorrow.  I want to lose minimally two pounds before I can go back to my normal 6 protein choices a day.  I can’t have fruit during plateau and my carb count is really low.  Coffee is my friend. 

Just remember.  In every diet, you will hit a point where you can’t lose.  Your body is happy with where you are at, even if you aren’t.  So, to break it, you have to do the plateau diet.  No sacrifice=no loss!
