Breakfast:
Blueberry Muffin

1 cup of coffee, no sugar

Snack:
1 piece of fruit such as an apple or banana

Lunch:
1/2 serving Creamy Macaroni & Cheese
A handful of grapes

Snack:
1 piece of fruit such as a plum or a pear

Dinner:
1 Serving of Fettuccini Alfredo
1 Caesar Salad

  • 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons of all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup of chilled 2% milk
  • 1 ounce of semi-soft goat cheese
  • 1 ounce of grated parmigiano-reggiano
  • 4 quarts water
  • 4 ounces fettuccini
  • 2 tablespoons of minced fresh parsley

In a 10 inch, non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil and minced garlic over medium heat while stirring frequently. Be careful not to let the garlic turn brown. Add the flour into the mixture slowly and let it sit for one minute. Pour in the cold milk and whisk to keep the mixture from clumping and mix until smooth. Add the goat cheese and stir while it melts. When the mixture is smooth again, toss in the parmigiano-reggiano and whisk briskly until the sauce is smooth once again.

Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil and cook the fettuccini until it is tender. Drain the fettuccini and add it to the sauce, allowing it to coat thoroughly. Serve with minced parley sprinkled on top.
