Yummy portabella mushrooms + I have hit a plan to push forward..

I've been stuck. I'm JUUUUUUST a little heavier than my goal of 125! I fluctuate between 125.4-126....and its getting annoying! I've been hitting the gym at least four times a week buuuuuuuuuuuuut while I have been eating healthy 70% of the time, it has to be more like 90% for me to see weight loss! I've been having to many cashews, sweet potato baked chips and wine! :(
I have a plan though! It is based on a new book I got, Dr. Ian Smith's other book- The Fat Smash Diet. I did his 'Four Day Diet' and learnt a LOT from it and lost a bunch of weight! He really helped me stay focused with his four day modules, and I liked the lack of thinking it took to eat healthy!

Phase 1 of the plan is a nine-day "detox" period designed to cleanse the impurities from your system and rid you of all your bad habits, so you can begin to prepare your "temple." Calories are significantly reduced and water is used to flush the body. You are told to eat four to five meals, whether you're hungry or not. Skipping meals is not allowed at any phase.

In the first phase of the Fat Smash Diet, food choices should be eaten raw, grilled or steamed. Fats are limited to a maximum of 3 tablespoons, with 1 to 2 teaspoons olive oil per day. Allowed foods include unlimited fruits and vegetables (except white potatoes or avocado), chickpeas, lentils, tofu, and beans. It also permits limited amounts of brown rice; low-fat, skim, or soy milk; oatmeal; low-fat yogurt; egg whites; and herbal tea. This is the total menu for nine days. Eeep...

I am going to start this for 9 days, from tomorrow - so from the 30th to the 7th! Wish me luck :D

Healthy and DELICIOUS stuffed mushrooms


8oz pack of portabella mushrooms
5 tablespoons of sun dried tomato hummus
As many sun dried tomatoes as you want to mix in
2 tablespoons 'tofutti' mix (or sour cream if you are not vegan)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
Salt and Pepper

Wash the mushrooms and pop their stems out. In a bowl, mix everything else together. If you aren't on a strict diet, mix in breadcrumbs too (about half a cup). Season the mushrooms with salt (I did a spicy salt on mine, mmm) and then stuff them with the mix. Bake in a toaster oven for 20 minutes. Make a side salad- volia- a healthy, YUMMY meal! Ty kept stealing mine off my plate :D
