Food I eat…

So I have promised many people that I would post what I am eating to give you guys some ideas…  Its pretty boring.  I generally eat the same things each week, but I will try to give you guys my staples and then add recipes as I make them.

I usually do my cooking on Sunday or Monday and try to cook for most of the week…

Some of my favorite recipes:

Meat Sauce from Paleomg.com

Prep time:  10 mins
Cook time:  20 mins
Total time:  30 mins

Serves: 2-4

Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 pound bulk pork mild italian sausage
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 (14 ounce ) cans of tomato sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons fat of choice (I used bacon fat)
 Instructions
  1. Heat up a large saucepan over medium heat, add a couple tablespoons of fat of choice then add minced garlic cloves, the bell peppers and onion along with a little salt and pepper to the pan.
  2. Move vegetables around until onions become translucent.
  3. Add ground chicken and bulk italian sausage to the saucepan and break up the meat.
  4. When meat has begun to cook through, add the spices.
  5. When meat is almost done cooking, pour in the two cans of tomato sauce.
  6. Salt and pepper once more, then reduce heat and let simmer for 5-7 minutes.
  7. When all the flavors are well mixed, add the chopped fresh basil, mix well, and serve!
  8. Easy peasy! Put on mushrooms, brussel sprouts, spaghetti squash, eggs, acorn squash, really anything you want. Or eat it cold. It’s pretty damn good cold.

I put this on Roasted Brussell Sprouts and LOVE IT!!  NOT ON PASTA…

Also here’s Fajita Seasoning that I put on everything:

1 TBSP Chili powder

1 1/2 tsp cumin

1tsp black pepper

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 paprika

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

Its delish on chicken and beef strips!!!

 

I also love to snack on (after a workout) a combination of Greek yogurt, peanut butter, and protein powder)  I generally use a scoop of peanut butter and 1/2 a scoop of protein powder.  Mix well…YUMMY!!  This is a go to snack for me in the early evening if I have already worked out (I cant eat PB or greek yogurt before I work out) so small doses after are delicious.

More to come…lil baby Junebug is eating my chair..
