Shades of the Past...morphed into a Healthier Now

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

As part of the BLC26 Wk#9 challenge, I'm to step out of my Health Comfort Zone...and talk about it.

Nutrition is an area with which I constantly struggle - the foods I enjoy most are not always the best choice AND I really don't like to cook...well, maybe I enjoy cooking but I Don't like to clean up the mess! As a result, I eat the same quick snacks and prepare the same quick meals on too regular a basis - can you say Boooooorinnng..... emoticon

Starting yesterday, actually (1 day early for our program), I decided to begin to step out of my food rut. Finding that Omelete Muffin recipe gave me the push I needed to start - it was easy to make, tasty and almost no clean up.

I continued my "Nutrition Step Out" with dinner (we won't discuss lunch) with a Bourbon Chicken recipe I made up based on a spice packet I had in-house. Using cut-up pre-cooked Chicken, I simply brought the sauce to a boil around the Chicken and simmered for 2 mins. Served over Quinoa and with Coleslaw and Cottage Cheese, again little prep time / activity and very little clean up.

Not wanting to repeat the Omelete Muffins (avoiding that rut with which I'm so comfy), I racked my brain....and remembered a fave childhood memory - the days Mom would not make a full breakfast (probably running late, I now know as an adult) and would serve a yummy rice pudding instead...my Fave breakfast.

Having plenty of Quinoa left over from dinner (I always make too much), I added some water to re-heat. With the addition of Soy Milk, a dash of Splenda and a sprinkling of Cinnamon I now had Quinoa Pudding and was immediately transported back to Mom's kitchen of yester-year....without the health implications.


Those of you dealing with Diabetes know of what I speak - I cannot remember the last time I enjoyed a white rice....until this morning's breakfast...YUMMMMM !!

I can provide the info for the Bourbon Chicken recipe to anyone interested - the only 'difficult' part is the sauce.

Also, I'd appreciate learning if you tried any of the above, what was your take and do you have any suggestions for variety's sake.

Thank you, Dolly emoticon

    I love that you stepped out - the omelette recipe will become one of my new ones to keep so keep on sharing new ones. What a great way to step out.

    Dolly, those are all great experiments. I'm lucky, I guess. Prior to June, I cooked many, many recipes once, and DH complained I never repeated the ones he really liked. So for right now, he is enjoying the "stability" of his favorites which meet my nutrition goals.

    Wow, you're doing wonderful with your new cooking! I rather clean up all the mess than cook! I simply don't like it. For me, cooking is just for surviving purposes emoticon I do admire people who like to cook and do it with pleasure. Your recipes sound phenomenal.

    Dolly,

It looks like you're on the right track! You go, GIRL!!!! As far as your recipes, forward them ALL to me, as I collect them, and I love trying new dishes. In fact, I never hear of rice pudding, unless you're referring to tapioca. So, I would love to have that recipe using the quinoa and the bourbon chicken recipe too. In fact, I'm making a light chicken crock pot meal that will take 6 to 8 hours inn the slow cooker.

Keep me posted on your progress and ALL the recipes.

Blessings!

    Dolly - great idea for stepping out. I always love recipes and I love chicken, so yes I would like that recipe. I am going to try your omelet muffins this week (so you earned that point) and will let you know how it goes. I am expecting to really enjoy them. emoticon

Omelete Muffins for Breakfast...a Recipe

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Here's what I made for breakfast this morning - found this recipe on my FB Page and made myself an Omelete Muffin with pork sausage, peppers and onions. SO easy to make and as nutritious as you want to make it.



Here's the Recipe: Omelete Muffins emoticon

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Spray muffin pan with non-stick spray
3. Add your favorite omelet mix-ins
4. Cover with scrambled eggs or egg whites (I spiced mine 1st)
5. Add to oven on 350 for about 30 minutes
6. Remove and enjoy!

Can be stored in the fridge for up to one week.

Options to try:
- sausage, peppers and onions (my option for today's experiment)
- spinach and feta
- salsa and cheddar
- chicken and hot sauce
- tomatoes and peppers
Really, the options are endless!

Dolly emoticon
