A veggie hot dog that only contains 50 calories? Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack? It’s a good, economical way to stay on your diet path.
Boil them till hot or place in microwave till hot and they’re good to go. There’s no need to fry them, they’re that good.
The texture is very much like the animal version, only better and better for you and the planet, which is your home don’t forget.

SPICY CHOCOLATE CASHEW SHAKE
Rarely do I put ice into a smoothie. I don’t like the freeze on my throat and my blender doesn’t do ice well. So a shake it is. And a good one at that. I always did like milk shakes, till McDonald’s changed the landscape with their impossible to draw through a straw shakes that were more like soft-serve ice-cream in a drinking cup. How dare they!!
New breakfast and lunch regimen: After drinking a 12 oz. glass of filtered water taken with a capsule of red cayenne pepper for pain control upon rising (I think the capsaicin is helping to a degree so I keep on it) I make a milkshake. Today it is spicy so I’m thinking I’ll stick with this version for a period of time till it bores me, while subbing in various plant milks for variety. Give it a try; you might like it too.
Makes 2 servings

GRILLED CHEESE AND PEPPER TORTILLA SANDWICH
Veggie cheese and sweet red roasted pepper between two 6 inch flour tortillas pan-grilled in vegetable oil to perfection! Served with cornichon dill pickle! A little fattening? A little. But it’s so good, and you only want one, right?
Okay, I confess, I had two – Lilly Belle helped eat them though (no excuse). I didn’t eat breakfast and I was planning on no supper. So what happened old wise one? I had a totally fat-free salad, dressing and all (new experimental recipe made in the Fat-Free Lab), then when Steve got home (our Friday night on Sunday night), Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold, no potato chips (salted we call them) and a little red wine – I’ll get back on the rest!

SAUERKRAUT FOR LUNCH?
That’s what I do some days – only I draw it out – a forkful at a time or two, then back to work, then in awhile some more figuring I’m doing my body good with all those natural probiotics from the fermentation process and I do like sauerkraut.
Raw is new to me, but now that I’ve tried it and liked the result, it’s going to be a staple in my pantry|refrigerator.
If you don’t live in Cleveland, you won’t be eating Cleveland Raw, but I’ll bet there’s a place near you where the pickin’s are pretty good, so give it a try. I think you’ll probably like the result too.
And it’s FAT-FREE!
