I eat chicken thighs for 2 of my meals for the 5 days I walk at gym.
On my lifting days.. Wednesday ( lower body ), and Sunday ( Upper body ), I substitute ground beef, with a few carbs.. stewed tomatoes ( .75 cup ), and can of chiles today, and dinner is 1 lb of perch cooked in 1/4 stick butter
Nothing in my meals changes, except sometimes, I have onions, or mushrooms with my beef. My breakfast is always the same.. 6 days of 4 jumbo eggs in 1/4 stick butter.. and one day ( Wednesday ), of 8 sausage links in 1/4 stick of butter.
Last night was a RARE variance from this plan.. I had enough chicken for lunch, but not supper.. so I had tuna, and mayo.
I have eaten chicken thighs for 10 meals a week, for at least 7 years now. I love them. Not a fan of chicken breast. Not enough fat.
Perhaps we could get some food pics along with these recipes since you eat with your eyes before anything else. As a Carnivore Foodie, I'd love to see a plate of food and think "wow that looks yummy. I want to try that". I don't think you need to be a food stylist to share, just have a camera and the courage to post your meal to the world. Ok, maybe not the world, just all of us here in our little corner of recipes.
a beautiful, ripe, sweet, juicy peach that I peeled (easily!) and ate leaning over the sink to keep from getting juice on my clothes yogurt with flax meal, sunflower seeds, heavy cream, cinnamon and sweetener
The neighbor brought over a huge pattypan squash that grew on what she was told when she bought it was a cucumber plant. Mom sliced up a chunk of it, dipped it in egg and then in cracker crumbs and then fried it in a tiny bit of oil. I sliced up a chunk of it, dipped it in egg and then in almond meal and fried it in lots of oil. It needed ketchup, so I used tomato sauce instead. It's not as good but makes a fair substitute.
Yesterday was shredded zucchini sauteed in bacon grease and drippings from cooking pork chops, with eggs scrambled into it once the zucchini was done. I fix something similar often - shredded zucchini (and usually some chopped onion), sauteed in some kind of fat (bacon grease, butter, etc.) long enough to get rid of the moisture in the zucchini, then eggs added and everything scrambled together. It's good with a chopped tomato added with the zucchini, or some sliced mushrooms, too.
I've just been eating deli meat rolled up with cheese and put in the microwave for about 30 seconds to make it nice and gooey... and some cream cheese with cajun seasoning sprinkled on top melted over some grilled or baked chicken.
3 slices of ham 1 1/2 tablespoons of my 'tangy' homemade tartar sauce (mayo, red onion, dill relish & dill relish juice) 1 oz of Colby & Monterey Jack cheese, finely shredded 10 black olives, diced Yellow mustard
Basically you just spread some of the tarter sauce over each piece of ham, then you sprinkle the black olives over each piece, then the cheese, and then a little yellow mustard...and roll each one up.
oh my goodness...you could use turkey, or roast beef, or all kinds of meats... MMmm Roast Beef...now that sounds like something I need to add to my grocery list
Plain Greek yogurt (full fat, of course!), with heavy whipping cream, ground flax, sunflower seeds, splenda, and cinnamon. It's good with fruit, too, but then I'd probably use almonds instead of sunflower seeds.
