I know today is a day to eat, enjoy, and celebrate freedom. I have decided that I am not going to make anything high in calories or buy takeout. I am going to make a delicious low calorie meal that I can eat in moderation. So I made a plan for today. I would do the sides and my boyfriend would do the grilling. I hope he has a plan because it’s raining pretty hard right now. I was really worried about how difficult it would be for low calorie alternatives that I could enjoy and would be delicious to him also. I just decided to go for it. I am doing potato salad and a lemon tart for desert. This year it is just me and him, so I am keeping it light and simple. I love potato salad but mayo is so high in calories. I was looking to use regular mayo when I found out one cup of mayo is almost 1600 calories. I decided that was not the route I wanted to go. I was not going to use light mayo I mean flavor is what I want. I kept it natural and used one avocado which is 322 calories. I was happy about that. I didn’t want to use eggs for my lemon tart because I used eggs for my potato salad who needs all that cholesterol. Cream cheese is out because I have a dairy allergy besides cream cheese was very high in calories. I am keeping it in moderation so my main ingredient was tofu and cornstarch I was surprised how yummy and delicious the sides were.
. I don’t think he will be grilling today..
