Day 47 - Healthy Easter Foods

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Ham. I has one. It was an impulse buy--from a local place (Smoking Goose Meatery). It's pasture-raised, no preservatives, and nitrite/nitrate free. It was brined with spices and smoked with fruit wood and hickory. It looks to be full of deliciousness (and sodium, but I can plan around that).

Here is the problem: what to serve with it? Growing up, we always had scalloped potatoes... cheesy hash brown casserole.. cheesy broccoli rice casserole... and other casseroles consisting nearly exclusively of fast-burning carbs and saturated fat.

Well, I'm going to do things a little bit differently.

Arugula Fennel Salad

Healthy Deviled Eggs (Greek yogurt instead of mayo)

Roasted Baby Spring Vegetables

Leftovers? NO problem. I will freeze some of the ham for later, and of course some will go to sandwiches. I'm also making ham stock/bone broth from the scraps, and using it to make...

Ham and Bean Soup w/ Kale recipes.sparkpeop

I'm adding these delicious dishes to my Sunday Food Prep / Meal plan for next week! I'm so excited to be able to get a taste of quality ham but still make it fit into my nutrition plan :)
