Here is my food from yesterday (WED). I’ll try to be better about posting my stuff too, in case it helps. Although several of our Challengers are giving ME ideas!
B – coffee w/ cream and raw sugar … (but I think I’m going to take a hiatus from this for a while. Mornings are so crazy at my house, I never get to drink it while it’s hot anyway. At least not without microwaving it 15 times. And mornings are the best time for me to get my broth in. So I think I’m going to make an ole switcheroo for a while. Homemade broth in the mornings instead of coffee with cream and sugar. Waaaaaaaaay better for me!) … 2 eggs fried in ghee; 1 homemade sausage patty (pastured pork from Al Rosas mixed with this spice blend); diced organic potato, cooked in ghee with some leftover broccoli.
L – Mixed greens from my co-op with leftover baked chicken, salsa, creamy dressing made from my homemade mayo, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper + about 1/4 of an avocado.
D – An adapted version of this Honey Mustard Cuban Pork Burger. (It calls for breading the patties in crushed plantain chips, which I did not do. I didn’t want to buy plantain chips b/c anything at the store is fried in a weird seed oil, and I didn’t have time to fry my own.) Instead, just mixed the pork with about a cup of choppped cilantro, garlic powder, onion powder and salt/pepper. Then fried the patties in ghee.
Side dish is beets and kale – both from my co-op. They were both about to go bad, so I just shredded the beet in my food processor with 1/2 a red onion (that was also about to go bad), then sauteed it with the chopped kale in more ghee, with some salt and pepper. Lesson here: Never let organic (or any) produce go to waste! When things are looking a little sad, just chop ‘em up and throw ‘em in a pan!
