What’s in the RediSetGo? Part Five

There’s been a two-week delay, but absence makes the heart grow fonder.  So let’s all roll up our pant legs and wade knee-deep in the newest installment of everyone’s favorite internet game, What’s in the RediSetGo? Click here for rules and archives, or just keep reading – I promise you’ll pick up how to play in a snap.  Are you ready to play?

What’s in the RediSetGo?

SWEET POTATO FRIES are in the RediSetGo!

I didn’t actually fry them, so I suppose they’re not sweet potato fries as much as they’re just sweet potato sticks, but that’s enough nitpicking.  I got a sweet potato at the farmers’ market weeks ago, and finally got around to using it.  It wasn’t very big, especially after I peeled it:

Perfect for one serving.  A little Pam went in the RediSetGo, and then the sticks, and about 15 minutes later, they were crispy and cooked through.  I hit them with some Mrs. Dash as soon as they were done, got a little Dijon mustard for dipping, then cut up some raw broccoli, carrots, and 2 radishes.  Voila!  My lunch:

In other news, I had a good workout at the gym today:  about 25 minutes of weightlifting, and then 48 minutes of cardio: 5 on a treadmill until an elliptical opened up, and then the rest on the elliptical.  My headphones were on the fritz, which was annoying.  A few days ago, the left side died, and today, the right side started crackling.  Not good.  I need my headphones during my workouts!

On the way home, I made a split decision to buy new headphones.  A few years ago I saw headphones for sale at the 99 Cent Store, so I stopped there to see if they still stocked them.  They did!  Success!  I also picked up a slightly dented can of garbanzo beans for 60 cents and a bag of lettuce for salads (click here for my prior adventures in 99 Cent Store produce).  Here’s my $2.70 haul (including tax):

Why yes, observant readers, they are Uninex International brand headphones.  Jealous?

I also saw this in the check-out line at the 99 Cent Store:

I’m not sure which is the more disturbing thought:  That the 99 Cent Store places pregnancy tests in the checkout lanes alongside other impulse buys, or that this checkout lane was almost sold out of them.

The two people ahead of me in line bought nothing but candy, and the guy behind me in line bought candy and other Halloween decorations.  How much candy did I buy?  None!

Keep it up, David!

    David – Found you via my Twitter friend @pameloth (I’m @snowcones) and I just love your blog & your attitude. I lost about 30 lbs. myself a few years ago and it really changed my whole life (I’m only 4’10 so 30 lbs. made a big difference). I’m so inspired by your story and I think your updates are hilarious. I’m looking forward to sharing “war stories” with you. You’re already doing the #1 thing I found that worked for me – try tons of new foods, especially produce. 🙂

      Thanks for checking out the blog and thanks for the wonderful comment! Also, congrats on the 30 pounds, and bigger congrats on keeping it off… that’s the harder accomplishment, I think, and one I hope to tackle myself, eventually. Keep it up, Christina! Oh and I just clicked the Follow button on your Twitter page – three cheers for social media.

    i bought a George Foreman grill and grilled everthing under the sun. the veges were mushy. i did put olive oil on some of the vegies and a “grilling”spice. What is the secret Mr. redisetgo?Are the foreman gril and redisetgo so different ? your opinion would be appreciated

    • David says:

      I’ve never had a Foreman grill, so I can’t make a comparison. But I think they’re basically the same thing – a plug-in countertop grill is a plug-in countertop grill, right? The noticeable difference is that the RediSetGo is smaller and doesn’t have grill ridges, so you can make liquid- or batter-based things (like scrambled eggs or pancakes), which you can’t do on the Foreman. For veggies, what I’ve found for the RediSetGo is that if I use a little Pam, and then put in the veggies and just let them go, they’ll actually sear a little bit, and not be so mushy.
