Coconut tofu and brussels sprouts

leave a comment »

On Monday the 16th, I started logging my calories using an app called LoseIt! I put in as my goal losing 1 lb a week for 20 weeks and was told I would need to eat around 1500 calories a day. THAT IS NOT A LOT OF CALORIES. I have been hungry but feel encouraged by the app–eating a lot of fruit and such, shying away from bread and mindless snacks. I hope it works.

Tonight, making this:

but with coconut instead.
Beat 2 eggs, cut tofu into cubes, mix sweetened shredded coconut and cayenne pepper, spray baking sheet with cooking spray, dredge tofu in egg and then coconut and bake 30 mins at 400 degrees.

Also roasted brussels sprouts–grease cast iron skillet with bacon grease and sprinkle with black mustard seeds, halve brussels sprouts and lay them face down, sprinkle lightly with salt and sugar, put in oven at 400 degrees for 20 mins or so.
