Fast all day and finish with a colossal calorie dinner.
This recipe is super easy to make, pretty much cooks itself, but turns in a whopping 437 calories per serving. We pared ours down somewhat from this ingredient list, no carrots, no tomato paste, etc. Also added in a pound of Grass Fed Tonganoxie Organic Ground Beef, from Seetin Ranch. I had two servings–budget busted!
If you are going to live off of the calories you get from small portions of meat and lots of herbs and vegetables, then you have to find a way to get the calories you need to take care of your fundamental human needs. By fundamental I mean, those necessary to sustain life and your sedentary lifestyle. There is lots of protein in this soup, the sodium level is not too bad, and the calories (from fats) get you into the range that works.
This was enough food that I was not hungry when I woke up, like I have been. Went without breakfast, which is bad, I know. I can’t bring myself to cook an egg if I don’t feel like eating it, though. Seems wasteful. Now, I am finally hungry at 9 AM the following day. Good work, Kale or sausage, whichever one filled me up so well.
