Portobello Stir Fry
My stir fry this evening has portobello mushrooms, broccoli, yellow pepper, and onion with some sesame sauce. Note the absence of tofu or "fake meat" product. I have already OD'ed on soy today -- soy milk with my cereal, tofu in my lunch, edamame (soy beans in pods) as a frequent nosh.
Also, I've realized that my diet is full of sodium. I advise my patients to avoid salt, usually because they have high blood pressure. While it's not endangering my health to eat too much salt, as my blood pressure is normal and I do not have heart disease, I notice that my weight fluctuates quite a bit and I've been getting very bloated. This stir fry is fairly low in sodium too, with probably 250 milligrams of sodium per serving.
