For breakfast: Seafood, pasta and sweet potatoes

Trader Joe's Organic Whole Wheat Fusilli Pasta continues to be a reliable substitute for bread at breakfast as I try to maintain a 45-pound weight loss on a no-bread, no pizza diet. I made the pasta with Classico bottled pasta sauce and Black Tiger shrimp from Costco Wholesale.

To a mixture of whole organic eggs, egg whites, shredded cheese, low-fat milk and Costco's Organic No-Salt Seasoning, poured into a non-stick pan over medium heat, I add slices of beefsteak tomato, smoked wild salmon and Costco's refrigerated Basil Pesto. I then finished the frittata for about 15 minutes under a low broiler setting until the top was browned and the pesto was sizzling.

Cut-up Costco sweet potatoes with their skin are boiled, then mashed with extra-virgin olive oil, a little salt, powdered garlic and other seasoning for use as another bread substitute at breakfast, above left. I ate them with a section of leftover frittata and Valentina Mexican Hot Sauce.
