Bistro MD: Day 4
By; Jenna M Wood, Momma Told Me

On the fourth day of my Bistro MD meal plan, my breakfast was scheduled as a simple High Protein Bagel with Bacon (Canadian) and Egg. After the first day, I had decided to utilize the convenience of microwaving my entrees for the remainder of my program. Because our microwave wattage runs on the low end, this usually takes 8 minutes, while most will find 5-6 sufficient. Since Bistro MD has identified each entree on the exterior cardboard sleeve, setting aside the day's entrees was quick and painless. On the front of each of the meal jackets are an ingredient breakdown, chef's serving suggestions, and nutritional information. The breakfasts are also specially marked with an easy to find icon in the upper left corner.

My High Protein Bagel with Bacon And Egg, surprised me in it's pouch packaging. Weighing in at 120 calories, this was no light breakfast. The 'bacon' most resembled Canadian, in patty format that I aligned with ham in flavor and texture. Assembled and heated this sandwich was substantial in portion, and fill. The protein bagel kept me full into lunch and encouraged smaller, well chewed bites. The egg, like previous Bistro MD egg entrees, was fluffy and flavorful- this meal was a nice change up from the previous mornings and went especially well with a cup of coffee!

For lunch was a 250 calorie Mediterranean Chicken entree featuring a lemon infused chicken breast over a generous portion of quinoa. This dish seemed a bit redundant (Chicken Burrito Bowl and Chicken With Pearl Pasta), also featuring seasonal leaf spinach and kalamata olives. Accented by a minor portion of Feta Cheese and 'assorted grilled vegetables' (which appeared to be flavorful and tender squash) this dish was also light. The chicken breast was juicy, as always, and had a wonderful light sear for flavor.

For dinner on my 4th day I enjoyed a 380 calorie Beef Brisket With Barbecue Sauce and Vegetables. I was, at first, skeptical of the flavors involved in this bold dish, and the calories after such a light day! With Sauteed Corn and Peppers in a Smokey Espresso BBQ Sauce, I knew this would be a hearty Southern inspired dish I'd either love, or hate. While the broccoli had been separated in the tray, the corn was covered in a rich and tangy sauce, with the brisket sitting atop. This meant the brisket was a little dry, after heating, but the meal turned out to quite flavorful! I always love the helping portion of flash frozen steamed viggies, and the corn kernels were sweet enough to play well with the tangy BBQ sauce. Yum!
