I have been taking pictures of the food I have been making. I know its one thing to hear "eat salad, drink smoothies".. yada yada no thanks, just give me a burger. Seeing is believing! Since I started preparing food this way I have dropped 14 pounds in 2 months. I was working out and eating "healthy" to normal standards, but my weight was stuck. I changed up the amount and type of food and viola! The fat melted off. Worry about health and the weight loss will happen.Here is a sample of SOME of the meals .............This doesn't include all the desserts and popsicles and energy balls.... I have more pictures and lots more food to make! SO this is just the beginning! Lets EAT and be HEALTHY!!!!!!!! The side effect will be weight loss, but our goal is health, FOR THE REST OF OUR LIFE!!!!!!
Old fashioned rolled oats, banana, blueberries, raw walnuts, sprinkled flax on top.......
Spaghetti squash! Pasta free! Bake the Squash, when it's done it strings out like spaghetti!
Always need fresh fruit snacks!
Handy Lemon juicer, stick it in and squeeze!
Layer just as you would lasagna!
Add whole asparagus, carrots, zucchini, peppers, broccoli, .... get creative!
Greens! Swiss chard, Kale, ........... Stuff the pan FULL. Cover and let soften........... Doesnt take long! Don't cook too long, don't want to kill too many nutrients!
I buy a lot in bulk, it's cheaper and easier to store if you have storage tubs. Beans, nuts, seeds...
I stumbled across these at Costco, they have resealable packages... Brilliant
Back to the soup, take batches out at a time and blend. I add garlic, basil, seasoning, cashews (makes it creamy)..etc at this point. I transfer to a bowl while I get all the batches out of the pan. I make sure its all blended before I put it in the pan...
Once its all back in the pan, add mushrooms for chewy texture.
I store in portion size tubs and theres a week or so worth of lunch or dinner. Quick grab and go! I like it cold, hot, spicy, plain, you can doll it up or let it be. Get creative!!!
Another one of my favorite is Indian food. I make this one a little different every time too. This one is a wild rice, tofu, yams... they are patiently waiting to be topped with my vegetable curry sauce!
There she is..... Isn't that beautiful! Kale, spinach, peas, onions, garlic, mushrooms, onions, ... I'm sure there's more, but you get the general idea.. I use the Trader Joes Red curry sauce, just the right amount of spice!
Burrito Bowl! Beans, Kale, spinach, avocado, tomato, jalapeno,onions, garlic, mushrooms, cilantro, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and homemade tofu sourcream (tofu, lemon juice, garlic, onion, cilantro) all blended up and slathered over the burrito bowl..... Oh ya.. my Mexican favorite... I know I have a lot of favorites... I love eating!
