If you're like me, you like to train with bananas. And you might have too many to eat before they start to get a little black... so here's a gluten free banana recipe I made:

I purchased the coconut oil and made hubby his oatmeal/raisin cookies with it. Loved it! It actually made them more moist and chewy. :0) I'll sneak what ever I can into his diet without him knowing haha! emoticon

I tried the coconut oil with spicy shrimp the other night, and it was great. The flavor is very subtle (you'd still need to put a bit of coconut milk for max flavor). But I loved how it tied neatly together the dish's ingredients.

The coconut oil's been superb in baked goods, too. I made a batch of corn muffins with it - yummy! I'll also make pancakes using the oil instead of Pam or veggie/canola oil. Bet the pancakes are going to have that nice hint of coconut, heehee.

Hmm, that coconut oil with eggs does not sound good at all but definitely think I want to give it a try with Asian cooking. Great idea!

I finally bought a jar of coconut oil today, and used it to cook an omelet. It tasted fantastic! A little coconut-ty, of course, which complemented the eggs perfectly. (I know it sounds strange, but trust me on this.)

I can't wait to try it in baking, and cooking southeast Asian and Indian dishes. Sometimes I run out of coconut milk, or still want that subtle coconut flavor w/out the milk... This seems to fit the bill for those conundrums.

Courtesy of Clean Eating Magazine:

Thai Pork and Papaya on Couscous

1/2 tsp ginger
2 T soy sauce
2 cloves garlic (we used 4 or 5)
1/2 lb pork tenderloin cut into cubes
olive oil
Saute in a pan until pork is cooked through. Remove from heat, toss in some chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice.

Serve over couscous and add some fresh papaya to the mix.

The recipe sounded really good and the picture looked divine. After it was done cooking I thought it was going to be a let-down but I was pleasantly surprised that it was not. The papaya didn't seem to add much to it and I would probably eliminate it next time. I think it would be equally as tasty with chicken or beef.

The freekeh was good! It tasted like bulger. I satueed up some onions, chickpeas, and mushrooms, added a can of tomatoes and seasoned with cumin, coriander, and lemon juice. DELISH!

I don't know about that one Sharon, sounds a bit out there. :)

The soup turned out surprisingly good. The squeeze of lime juice made it. It's a good thing too because I'll be eating it the rest of the week with as much as I made.

Christy, I made it with a can of coconut milk, some curry powder, and I also threw in toasted cumin seeds for good measure. But if only I had some fresh ginger to add in - that would've really made my curry rock. Still, it was incredibly yummy!

We're subsisting on leftovers for the next few days. :D I made chicken & lentils, chili with kidney beans & ground beef, and I think I have sardines and a package of frozen shrimp, plus veggies. I'm trying to purge what we have in the fridge!

Coconut chicken curry. Sounds great. Did you make it or eat out?

I have a big pot of soup on the stove - to go with the snow outside. :( We'll see if it turns out - chicken, lots of veggies and Mexican flavors. I'll know in just a few.

Well, I gotta get back on the "clean eats" bandwagon, and have already begun to do so. Ate some yummy coconut chicken curry with a ton of veggies this afternoon, and will chow down on some ratatouille later on for dinner.

Sharon - Those Knorr packages are not my faves either, LOL. I stopped using them when I realized that I could get better results with a well-stocked herb & spices cabinet, and using real ingredients such as high-quality Parmesan-Reggiano, thank goodness!

Here's to all of us getting back in the kitchen for some healthy eating next week.

I hit the farmer's market yesterday and got a big bag of fresh salad mix, some rainbow chard, zucchini, yellow squash, "red" green onions and little baby avocados. I hear my body thanking me already.

Craving a salad is always a good thing!

I've been living on leftovers this week. Work has been super busy and I've been getting home after 9pm. Fortunately, the BF usually makes himself lunch (he works from home) so there have been leftovers waiting for me. Unfortunately, the BF also loves those Knorr "side dish" packages, the ones that come with white pasta and a whole bunch of processed chemical powder to make a sauce. He beefs it up with a lot of fresh veggies, but processed is processed. OTOH, it's nice to have food waiting when I'm starving, so no complaints here. Hopefully, I'm back in the kitchen next week!

That fish sounds delish! I love fruit and meat together but my husband hates it so I don't get to do much beyond lemon juice.

I still haven't made anything exciting. Went straight from 17 day diet to total bad food. My body is crying for a healthy salad right about now.

Last night, I marinated some fish in a combo of lemon juice, orange juice and soy. I kept the orange segments and when it was done marinating, I put everything on a bed of spinach, added some sliced portobello mushrooms and tomatoes, covered it and baked for about 30 minutes at 400. OMG, DELISH!

And it is so fast. The longest wait is warming up the oven. I topped mine with smoked tempeh, mushrooms, asparagus, and soy cream cheese. I used GF crushed tomatoes before adding those toppings. Love it.

Another one I am loving (not using chick pea flour) is pupusas. They are so good. I kept it easy and just put mozzarella soy shreads and refried beans inside, but the possibilities are endless.

It was awesome! All of my faves, lemon, garlic and white wine! Oh, I also had some fresh basil that I tore up and put into the sauce.

Wednesday night, I sauteed onion and garlic, added black beans and some collard greens to the pan along with 2 cans of ro-tel seasoned tomatoes (jalapeno!). Seasoned with chili powder, cumin and oregano and had it over wheat berries. YUM!

That sauce sounds divine. When I was in Boise over the weekend our friend made a shrimp dish with white wine. Oh, it was so good. Shrimp is going on my grocery list for this weekend and I think I'll give your sauce a try.

Thanks, Christy! I admit, I've had to up my game since I moved in with the BF. He does the grocery shopping and I do the cooking, so I need to figure out what to do with what he brings home!

Last night, I roasted some red onions, asparagus and a bag of frozen mixed seafood (I defrosted it first!). I made a sauce for it with 3 cups of chicken stock, 1/2 cup of white wine, the juice and zest of 2 lemons, 1 tbsp of tomato paste, some garlic and fresh basil. I thickened it with some cornstarch and served it all over whole wheat pasta! DELISH!

YES to the chickpea pizza, Julie! Please share!!

So, Friday I made a beany concoction... I had some red kidney beans hanging around in the fridge, so I added them to some satueed onions and garlic, mushrooms and kale. Poured some tomato sauce on top and served it over kasha! DELISH!

Yesterday I made a pot of black beans and a pot of wheatberries, so I will have to think of something interesting to do with those!

MB - I love roasted beets. Cannot get enough of them! The co-op has some pretty ones. I made curried chickpeas and we had that over rice for a few meals. Very tasty!

Speaking of pizza...I found an easy way to make a chickpea pizza crust and topped it with tomato and other veggies...along with some soy cream cheese. Let me know if you are interested. It was super easy and tasty!

I found a recipe for vegan/gf papusas (sp) and I want to make those tomorrow. They sound great!

Sun-dried tomatoes will liven up most dishes. Yummy!

I forgot to post it here, but over a week ago, I made this recipe for honey-glazed black pepper roast beef: www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/102

. Or I should say "maple-glazed" - the honey had frozen up in its bottle, and didn't have the patience to defrost it, LOL. So natural maple syrup it was, and it came out incredibly great.

Christy, that sounds really good! I miss having a grill....

Last night I roasted some beets, acorn squash and sweet potato. Then I diced those up and added it to barley I hade made earlier in the week. Then we had that along with some baked mahi-mahi that Larry marinated in soy and marmalade. Sounds kinda weird but the sweet-salty combo was nice!

We took advantage of the one nice night of weather and made grilled pizzas last night: I grilled some chicken and diced it up. Then we mixed together a little bit of bbq sauce and teriyaki sauce, brushed it on a Boboli pizza crust, top with the grilled chicken, mushrooms, pineapple, smoked mozzarella and little bit of Parmesan. It was fantastic!

I got home very hungry last night and I whipped this up so fast, I couldn't believe it!

I made a pot of red lentils (they cook in 15 - 20 minutes). Once they were finished, I added cooked frozen spinach and a can of tomatoes to the pot. Ate that over rice seasoned with curry! DELISH! I admit, it was white rice solely because the BF had brought some home from a meal out and like I said... HUNGRY!

I'm thinking quinoa could also be a great substitute for the wheatberries. They're chewy/nutty enough that they'd add a nice texture, but not completely overwhelm the salad, either.

Lately I've been on an edamame kick. I can't get enough of the stuff! I'll probably toss a few into a stir-fry this week. I haven't been so creative in the kitchen recently. Just content putting together my boring old meals of chicken/beef/fish with veggies, LOL.

Yum. I bet you could swap the wheat berries out and it would be delicious too. Bulgar, steel cut oats...something with a little bite if you don't overcook it.

I make a cold salad with red onion, cucumber, tomato, black olives, greek salad dressing, and cooked grain of your choosing. Very tasty. You can add feta (there are vegan options at my co-op for this) to it also. Lots of flavor and so easy to pack for a meal.

Here's the edamame/wheat berry recipe I found a few days ago... Will probably make it this Friday.

-4 cups water
-1/2 c. dry wheat berries
-1/2 of 15 oz. can of black beans, drained & rinsed
-1 c. shelled edamame
-1 c.chopped tomato
-1/2 c. finely chopped red onion
-3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
-2 tbsp. red wine vinegar (I'll sub balsamic for mine)

Combine wheat berries and water in saucepan and cook accordingly. Drain when ready (wheat berries will be tender).

Mix wheat berries with rest of ingredients in a bowl. For a stronger flavor, chill in fridge for up to 8 hrs in advance.
