Getting Creative

Monday, August 18, 2014

This whole foods diet has been a challenge!

I've been pouring over recipes on Pinterest and various Paleo blogs looking for recipes. I don't want to buy a lot of expensive ingredients that I may not use going forward, like the soy sauce substitute "coconut aminos" that I paid nearly $8 for at the health food store.

Yesterday I made something called "Egg McNothin's" which will be great for breakfast! Talk about easy and delicious!

I also made a beanless "chocolate chili" which is rich and delicious. I'm going to eat that with sauteed greens for lunch.

And finally, today I will be making Creamy Salmon and Leek Soup.

Today my new treadmill arrives! I'm really excited!! emoticon

    That recipe does look good. I will be giving that one a try. I love breakfast as well (plus lunch and dinner!!!) If I can have pre-made dishes like this one it really helps me control my calorie intake.

    Thanks for posting it!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. I've actually tried these before but I sort of stirred my eggs a little. I only like the yolk sometimes in a boiled egg. Have fun putting your treadmill together. I can't wait to hear how you like it!! emoticon emoticon

    I love hearing of your dietary challenges. I've just been phasing processed foods out of my diet and finding what works for me.

    Will you be posting pics of the new treadmill? emoticon

    That is a great breakfast muffin. I also was shocked at the coconut aminos cost. I have gone back to using tamari.
    How fun that you will have your own treadmill!

    I'm not Paleo, but I do cook from scratch, have nearly every day for decades now. You'll find a rhythm.
