Oh baby ~ this is SO GOOD. Sometimes you just need cereal to distract you from the everyday mundane have-to’s of life. That’s right ~ I’m using cereal as a distraction. Does this tell you how desperate I am? But this cereal is not just any cereal. I’m cereal. Ha ha ha If that doesn’t make your mouth water, then you don’t like cereal as … Continue reading got cereal?
This is a variation on Aarti Sequiera’s Mango Pulled Pork with Peanut Slaw. Here’s the original post: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/winner-aarti-sequeira1/pulled-pork-with-mango-bbq-sauce-recipe-1921724 This is the only pulled pork recipe I make, but I change it up a bit each time. Usually this recipe changes for me based on what I have on hand. But the idea is all Aarti and I think she is brilliant. Here’s my take on … Continue reading Island Pulled Pork w/Indian Peanut Slaw.
I confess. I’m a self-proclaimed addict of the trendy food-lovers’ salad of today ~ the Buddha Bowl. I could eat one every single day. And it would be really smart for me to do so. It’s full of all the things that really make me feel amazing: fresh, vibrantly-colored vegetables, mostly raw, nuts, seeds, fruits, maybe a little protein or grain added, and a homemade … Continue reading Buddha Bowl Addict.
This is truly a soup for company, y’all. Although, I didn’t know I was going to have company yesterday when I made it. I merely made it because I wanted to get rid of this nasty Seasonal Affective Disorder that’s been lingering for days. But sometimes if you build it, it will come. If you make delicious food, people will come to your house for … Continue reading Curried Carrot Bisque.
Okay, I COMPLETELY forgot to post anything on the last day of the reset! TERRIBLE! So here’s my belated last-day post! Not that I have anything interesting to say. I’ll tell you this: I am eating a lot of not-on-plan things down here at the music convention I’m attending with the Hub, and it’s fine, but I know this will end soon. Oh yes. It … Continue reading Day 21?
One more day, y‘all! One more day!!! I am definitely going to continue on for the full 30 days, but I promise I‘ll leave you alone after tomorrow! I‘ll go back to my regular, random posts, and stop filling your inboxes with my daily highs and lows. I think this way of eating is so delicious, though. I can‘t imagine stopping, although I’m sure I‘ll … Continue reading Day 20!
It is so gloomy here! And cold and miserable. It’s really not helping my situation, as I trudge (there’s that word again) through the last weeks of this reset. Okay, this is a 21-Day Reset. So this is technically and officially over in 5 days. But I really want to try and go the whole 30 days. I guess I’ll just see what happens, since … Continue reading Day 17.
This post is coming to you late because I‘m really behind on life. And stressed, and unfocused. Praying this will pass! Tuesday night‘s din din was MY kind of food ~ pasta!!! Only, made with Whole 30 compliant ingredients ~ YAHOO! I wanted to make Lidia’s famous Pasta Trio, but I figured only two kinds of “pasta” would do. Here’s what we ate: Sweet Potato … Continue reading Whole 30 Italian Night.
I feel like this is a milestone day! Two weeks we’ve been on this plan, and we haven’t slipped up once! I’m SHOCKED. No one is more shocked than I am. We have passed a few difficult tests, kind of like the Fire Swamp in The Princess Bride? Except our Rodents of Unusual Size are cocktail parties and Wednesday night church choir wine breaks. HA! … Continue reading Day 14!!!
Okay, it’s getting a little too meaty around here. I never thought I’d eat so much meat. But I’m just trying to stay in this reset. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try to give it a rest with the meat. In the meantime, here’s a mouth-watering picture of our dinner ~ pork chops and applesauce! (And waaay too little spinach, but that’s all we had!) I had … Continue reading Pork Chops & Applesauce.
