The Maker's Diet - Phase II

We are well into Phase II of the Maker's Diet. It is a relief to add so many more fruits and corn. Unfortunately, I think the addition of corn is keeping me from losing weight. Cows are given corn to fatten them up. I think it might work the same for me. Can anyone say "moooo". I'm seriously limiting my corn consumption. I've upped the exercise this past week in hopes of dropping more weight, but it isn't budging.

In addition to the foods in Phase I (click here to see those menus and recipes), here are some food ideas that my diet buddy and I came up with for the next two weeks.

Breakfast (All of Phase I plus below)
Grits - add sharp cheese, chives, salt & pepper
Corn fritters
corn mush
Breakfast burritos in a corn tortilla (add turkey bacon, eggs, cheese, chives)
Pumpkin Corn Bread

Lunch & Supper (All of Phase I plus below)
Enchiladas in corn tortillas
Chili
Black Bean Soup
Fajitas in corn tortillas with spicy black beans and cantelope
Baked Sweet Potato (with honey, butter and cinnamon)
Roll up luncheon meat (roast beef or turkey) with cheese, corn
Kentucky Fried Chicken - Roasted Chicken, Coleslaw & corn on the cob

Snacks (All of Phase I plus below)
