Kaylee isn’t a huge fan of sandwiches, so I’m always looking for an alternative to a traditional sandwich for her. She also eats lunch at 10:30, and has to make it the rest of the day to 3:30. The higher the protein lunch, the better sustained she’ll be.Gregg loves high protein lunches, and I’m always on the quest for high protein low carbs for him. This wrap is perfect for both of them.Pin It
My husband once joked that when the zombie apocalypse happened, everyone should come to our house because we could feed them for a while. I honestly thought that he’d made the phrase up, because he’s clever like that. But come to find out, it’s a running joke about people who stockpile food.Pin It
I LOVE my rotisserie oven. I don’t know why food tastes so much better coming out of the rotisserie than the oven, but it does. I prefer to cook meat in it if I can. This turkey breast was amazing – I used it to make lunch meat and the flavor even in thinly sliced pieces was just wonderful.Pin It
As I’ve said in My Schedule (see the tabs above) long ago I had a full-time job with professional and personal commitments that kept me extremely busy. However, eating out all of the time was no a fiscal option, and fast food was not a healthy option, so I made sure that I cooked dinner every night. The only way to be able to do that with the lifestyle we lived and to eat before 9 o’clock every night was to have a menu plan.Pin It
This is week 2 of my 21-Day Daniel Fast. My blog post about that can be found here, but basically, it’s vegan extreme – and I’m throwing in my own personal restriction to unleavened bread only. I had a weak day at day 4. I didn’t break the fast, but I was tempted for some reason, even dreamt of food that night. At this point, I’m in a steady go, not tempted to cheat, not wishing I hadn’t started the fast in the first place (heh).Pin It
You often hear that people eat with their eyes first. When a plate is beautiful, colorful, the appeal of the food speaks to our brain. When it’s dull, brown, boring, the lack of appeal does the same.
What you may not know, and what our brain by God’s perfect design is telling us, is that those colors are good for you. That each color has a purpose, provides specific vitamins and nutrients, and that a diet rich in the rainbow is so good for your overall health.
At the BINGO hall is a concession stand that sells the typical fare – mostly soy hamburgers on white bread, pork hotdogs, chips with nacho cheese, frozen “pizza logs” reheated in a microwave, etc. Consequently, when I get home from the soup kitchen, I usually make a big dinner and take it to feed to the volunteers.
Lattice topped pies do nothing more than to make a pie visually appealing. You can perform the same function of creating a vent within the pie with several slits cut into the top crust of pie, or using a pie bird. However, I’m a big fan of visually appealing food, and I think that some pies (i.e. cherry pies) require the extra effort to make them taste better. (kidding) (well, mostly kidding)
