Chicken and Zucchini Noodles w/steamed veggies

March 21, 2018

I had to take a bit of a break from chicken because I eat a lot of it but I never get tired of chicken with some cheese. Yum! Anyway here it is:

Butterfly 2 seasoned (garlic, pepper, salt) chicken breasts and stuff them with cheese. Easy peasy!

Bake them on 400 for about 20 minutes give or take. Flip in the middle. When they’re about five minutes from done I sprinkle a little cheese on the top.

While those are cooking sauté diced onions, peppers and garlic until nearly caramelized and then add in the noodles. Cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes or so or until noodles are to your preferred consistency.

Um for the steamed veggies, you know, steam some veggies.

Really easy and quick dinner. My toddler ate all my carrots though. She didn’t want hers.

I just realized the picture is a little awful so ignore it. The chicken was not that “white” I don’t think the cheese photographed well.


Mmmmmm donuts

August 12, 2017

I am going to preface this by saying that I don’t even like regular donuts or doughnuts but I really enjoy the ones from Know Foods. I fix mine up a little differently though:

1/2 slice of Know Foods donuts
1/2 teaspoon or so of Almond Butter
1/2 teaspoon of favorite low sugar fruit spread
Toaster oven

Take your 1/2 slice donut and warm in toaster oven for just a few minutes
Spread almond butter
Spread fruit spread

Simple, quick and delicious. Three of my favorite things.


Eggs My Way

July 29, 2017

I do love eggs especially with some fresh veggies and sometimes sausage (sometimes I use fake sausage but not today):

1 egg
1 sausage patty (no casein, nitrites, nitrates, blah blah blah)
Fresh greens
Fresh peppers
Fresh onions
A teaspoon of butter
A couple small pieces of Parmesan
Adobo seasoning (I use Primal Palate’s)
Optional: gluten free toast

Chop your veggies
Melt the teaspoon of butter in a griddle
Put your peppers/ onion combo on the griddle
On a separate part of the griddle put your sausage patty

Once that stuff is nearly cooked put your egg on
Once the egg is very nearly done add the greens to the peppers and toss them over a couple of times
Add the adobo seasoning
Plate and enjoy!

2013 — I really hated you

January 17, 2014

So 2013 was pretty much the most horrible year I have ever had on earth, I won’t go into details because its none of your business but lets just leave it at it was pretty awful. As a result, I didn’t work out quite as much as I wanted to nor did I eat strictly the way I needed to. I ate foods that I knew would make sick (and trigger my allergies) and why? Well I’m not sure, I think it was to punish myself for all the horrible things that happened or maybe just because I wanted them, I don’t know. Here we are mid-January and I’m back to my strict, disciplined ways minus the working out, its really hard to do with double ear infections and a sinus infection, that should start back next week. 

I sometimes and this was especially true last year, feel like I am being horribly selfish with my dietary restrictions even though I don’t have a choice with most of them and my workout regimen even though that keeps my lungs moving the way they need to and I am convinced helps prevent pneumonia. I think or at least I want to believe this is a common problem for people who were extremely unhealthy and are just trying to maintain their new way of being. I hope I’m not alone in all of this anyway because then it would be proof I’m as weird as I’m accused of being. Anyway the moral of the story is 2013 sucked and I really hated it, I hope 2014 is better for everyone. 


Vacation Eating, Trying To Do It Right

June 29, 2012

I’m on quasi-vacation which is my way of saying my doctor told me to get some “real” rest and I translated that into “just don’t go into the office for a bit.” So here I am, still doing some work (the stuff I enjoy anyway) and trying to remember that I can’t just go eat out at restaurants like crazy anymore. We’re out on the Lake Erie shore (by the Ohio Islands and Cedar Point) and, well, restaurants abound. We’ve been here for a day or so and have only gone out to eat once, Mexican (El Mocajete which I will explain and try to recreate later is amazing and ok for me). Most places out here will cook your stuff in PAM instead of butter so that’s a good step I think. 

Anyway today I had eggs for breakfast, grilled chicken and veggies for lunch and my salmon dish for dinner. I didn’t even steal a few kernels of popcorn at the movies (Ted was awesome BTW) like I usually do.  The problem came after dinner when my wife wanted to roast marshmallows, my will power lost and I broke down and had one. Considering that normally I would’ve had seven or eight I guess one is not too bad. The problem is NOW as I’m sitting here typing this post and doing some other work for my “real” job I am CRAVING more. Luckily all the roasted ones are gone and I don’t care much for raw marshmallows. I really hope I don’t gain 20 pounds by the end of this forced exile….wish me luck.
