Just like every morning, I started my day with two glasses of water on an empty stomach then had my cup of coffee (1 tsp of Nescafe, 3 tsp of fat free coffee mate, 2 tsp of sugar) followed by a medium sized pancake mankouche!
If you’re into fusion cuisine this is an outside the box pancake idea where you simply add to the main pancake mixture 2 tablespoon of zaatar (thyme) and half a teaspoon of olive oil and get a “Lebanized pancake” !!
Top it with a teaspoon of low fat labneh; decorate it with cherry tomatoes and cucumbers and enjoy the best breakfast ever
I had for lunch 5 large spoons of mloukhieh with two tbsp of rice and 90g of chicken!
As an afternoon snack, i had 3 portions of fruits consisting of two figs, two dates, half a peach and half a pear!
As for dinner i had wraps made of iceberg lettuce, 1 tbsp labneh light and two slices of turkey! A very quick, easy, tasty, low fat, low calorie dinner!
