These were chicken tostadas without the tostada. AMAZING. I marinated some chicken breasts in olive oil, red pepper, and lime juice, and then pan fried them and cut them up. We ate them with mangos, guac, tomatoes, yellow peppers, salsa, and lettuce, I think.
The next morning I took the left over mango/tomato chicken mixture, dumped it over some spinach, threw an egg on the top, and added some guac. It was the bomb. Recommend.
I had the WORST craving for pineapple ham pizza, so this was how I got that flavor anyway. These are bison burgers, topped with bacon, pineapple, red onion, and then eaten in lettuce instead of a bun. I also added ketchup, and no one died, believe it or not. Oh, there’s golden beet salad there on the side, but it was just sort of meh for me, so I wouldn’t recommend that.
This is spinach, the leftover beet salad, an egg, and some smoked salmon. (Breakfast)
I needed to use up some sprouts, so I made this carroty/sunflower salad, but I just ended up picking out all the apples and the chicken so I probably should have just eaten some slices of chicken and an apple.
I know it’s not for everyone, but I LOVE spaghetti squash, especially with meatballs. I made these with ground up cashews instead of bread crumbs, and with ground turkey. I threw ALL the spices in there and they were still bland, I think next time I’d add even more garlic and maybe some mustard.
I bought these artichokes at the farmer’s market and they were delicious. I always cook my artichokes this way, btw. Trim the bottoms, trim the tops, cut in half, steam in the microwave in a covered bowl with some water in it for 10 minutes. Remove from the bowl, drizzle with olive oil and some kind of herb mixture (you can use Mrs. Dash or Trader Joes sells a good generic herb mix), salt and pepper, and grill until you get a nice golden brown crust on them. They are SO GOOD cold, too, I always make a lot and save them.
