My New Years resolutions have made it past the critical 3 week point. I have posted everyday and I have faithfully followed the Detox Maintenance Lifestyle Eating Plan. You’ll notice I didn’t call my new regimen a diet… And yes, I know it is too soon to feel victorious but my resolve has lasted longer than usual, which is heartening because I do not always exhibit an over abundance of willpower.

Using Elizabeth’s book as a guide for ideas, I came up with the following recipe for savory patties. They are nice served cold as a snack or you can heat them up (I use the toaster oven) and drizzle a little fresh tomato sauce over the top.
2 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup amaranto*
2/3 cup sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp chopped capers
2 Tbsp chopped sun-dried tomato
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
1 clove garlic diced super-fine
- In a separate bowl mix:
4 Tbsp olive oil
½ cup mashed carrots
½ cup mashed potatoes
1 cup mashed garbanzos
- Kneed the two mixtures together and form 20 patties.
- Place them on an ungreased, lined cookie sheet and bake for ½ hour at 350 degrees F.
