My bro is farm sitting for friends so we're getting fresh organic eggs weekly, woo hoo! The nutrition level is off the charts compared to store bought, they eat scraps and bugs and organic feed. I'm so happy!

The lettuce wraps were fabulous!  Tonight we are having baked chicken.  I am marinating my chicken in the garlic chili sauce that I am recently obsessed with.  I think its call srirachi... it's too spicy for everyone else in my house so I have to separate my chicken from the rest...

Yum Lindy, that sounds so good!  We raise chickens, too, craftylittlemonkey.  Fresh eggs are awesome.

That stir fry looks yummy! I have sirloin steak in the freezer just to use in a stir fry. My problem with stir fries is that I get bored with the same sauce, I need to find some new ideas.

Every time I'm in my kitchen I think... I need to visit Mare's healthy thread. Then by the time I get back to my robot I forget Smiley.

Well, my laptop is in the kitchen with me now so here I am!

I'm excited to go back through this thread for some healthy recipes. Okay, I'm caught up!


Here's my story...

I've realized recently that I'm good at dieting. It's not as easy as it used to be to lose weight but I can stick with a plan, eat well, exercise and drop pounds. What I'm not good at is keeping it off. I lose weight and then tell myself I can eat whatever I want. Then I gain 10 lbs, panic and go on a restrictive diet again to lose the weight. Up and down, up and down...

I really want to work this year to have a lifestyle of healthier living. I want to lose weight but I want to do it in a way that it will stay off, even though it will mean that it comes off slower. No more yo-yo'ing!

I really enjoyed reading others goals and tips! Love the idea of using salad plates. We're instituting that right away! I've also copied some of your great looking recipes.

I have a couple recipe tips for the week...

- Roasted Cauliflower Soup - I use olive oil instead of butter. I also put green onions, fat free cheddar and a bit of low fat sour cream on top.
- Frozen grapes!! I like to keep a bag of green grapes in the freezer for snacking. They are just as good as any popsicle Smiley.

So I'm a bit derailed already....I am sick so I am eating whatever doesn't make me want to yak!

Oh well.  Roll Eyes

Anyway, I LOVE fresh eggs. Used to get some through an Amish couple I knew and they were second to none.

The recipes are making me hungry!

Also did a bit of pinteresting this weekend and I found something I never heard of....supreme your citrus fruit. Intrigued? I was!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLcfzpOood4

Found this to explain it. I usually just halved and scooped out the darned things. I LOVE grapefruit and this is how I think they are removed from the fruit when you buy the plastic jars of them in the fresh produce aisle. So simple yet I never thought of doing it like this. I will def. be trying it when I get to feeling like eating anything with acids!


Also, don't think I'll be setting water goals, I always am up for H2O. Thing I need to be mindful is diet pop. I drank one today and it was WAY too sweet for me. I need to cut it out almost entirely.

Health prompt for this week:

Please share one healthy recipe you either already love or are going to try soon.

On Page 2 I shared my favorite recipe. Fast, easy and most importantly, healthy.
Another recipe I like and find easy, fast and healthy is:
Chicken thighs and drumsticks
Onion
Spices of your choice: salt, pepper, paprika etc.
Chicken soup powder
Canola oil
Mixed Veggies

Saute onions in a little bit of oil. Add chicken pieces (I take the skin off) and "sear" the meat to close in juices. (All my meat is Kosher so I try different ways to keep it tender and juicy) Add a few tablespoons of chicken soup powder to about 6 cups warm water. Add spices of your choice to the water (I add curry powder to everything but ice cream) Bring to the boil. Add water til chicken is just covered. Bring to the boil again then add your veggies. (I do use frozen veggies. It turns out cheaper for me in the long run). Simmer on very low fire for about 1\2 to 3\4 hour. You can also just add rice \brown rice at the simmer stage for added carbs.
This also tastes better the next day when all of the flavors incorporate. (I made this yesterday and we're having for lunch today.)


Review last week:

How did your goal from last week go? What are you going to do to keep working on it this week?

My goal went pretty good last week. I need to keep writing down what goes into my mouth until I make it a conscious habit.
Next goal: Healthier recipes and apply.

My healthy recipe for the week is something that my mother used to make us as kids. It was called 'Mushroom Chicken' and basically consisted of a can of mushroom soup poured over chicken and then simmered slowly for a few hours. Here's my low-fat recipe!

1 lb of chicken thighs, skin-off.
1 can Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup (the low-sodium, half-fat variety.)
same can filled with half skim milk and half water
fresh thyme
dried oregano

So basically I take a big dutch oven (like, a covered baker) and sear my chicken really really well. That 'golden brown' colour you get from searing meat is pure flavor with no extra calories =)
Then i mix together my soup and milk in a seperate bowl and pour over chicken. Throw in your herbs and spices (whatever you're into) and give it a good stir. Turn the heat down to low and let it hang out for an hour or two. Stir it up occasionally and make sure you flip your chicken at least once.

Usually served with rice or noodles, I serve this over baked spaghetti squash with a side of fresh veggies!




My last week goal went pretty well. I made sure I was eating my breakfast and managed to do yoga in the morning twice. Still needs some improvement.
