4/21: Week in Eats

Grass fed ground beef cooked with no junk marinara sauce over steamed broccoli and cauliflower. This was so dang good after a workout.20140422-231938.jpg

Buffalo shrimp salad with tomatoes, carrots and cucumber. Dressing was a mixture of equal parts lemon juice & olive oil. I made sure to season those shrimp very well before pan frying and it made all the difference. Second time I made this, I used a rubber spatula to retrieve all the buffalo sauce from the pan for extra dressing and MAN it was good. 20140424-192414.jpg

Veggie smorgasbord featuring zucchini, yellow squash, sweet potato, onion, avocado and olives. Wish I had used olive oil for frying instead of coconut oil. The sweet mixed with savory just didn’t jive here. Otherwise was an excellent meal!20140426-124600.jpg

Cobb-like salad featuring green beans, chicken, tomato, olives and a soft boiled egg. Added some Greek dressing over the top.20140427-190430.jpg

Operation NoMoreJunk started on Wednesday and will last until the hubs and I depart for Costa Rica in about a month. It’s like another Whole30 except the idea is to go for sensible rather than completely restricted meals/snacks. Cupcakes, candy and chocolate aren’t sensible- just so we’re clear. It’s those snacky things that tend to be my downfall. There will be 1 cheat meal a week though. In fact, I’ll probably post a pic of it here just for accountability.

Also, hubs had a physical and needs to get rid of some LDL cholesterol. Expect to see more fish, nuts (hello almond butter!) and high fiber foods up in here 👍 Less eggs and red meat 😁
