Real Food Menu for Week of 8.3.2020

Is there some sort of turkey shortage going on? We’ve been looking for turkey cutlets for weeks with no luck. The meat department manager at one of our Kroger stores told us they “discontinued” them. What? So strange. Anyway, I’ve been wanting to try the new turkey dish below, so in the absence of turkey cutlets, we used chicken breasts.

Mark’s Breakfast:
Cinnamon Roll Noatmeal – Here’s an old friend! Back when I was doing keto (hello, 2019!) we had this for breakfast quite regularly. I add 3/4 tsp. of cinnamon and a smidgen of nutmeg (’cause it’s my favorite spice and I add it to nearly everything!) to the dry noatmeal mix from here…

Make it a little extra special with this cinnamon roll drizzle:

Mark’s Lunch:
Keto Cobb Salad – We like to grill a few chicken breasts on Sunday evening to have on hand for quick lunch prep.
https://www.ketoconnect.net/keto-salad/
Mark likes this with Pioneer Woman’s dressing from the layered salad.
https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/layered-salad-2308495

Dinner:

Garlic and Herb Turkey Cutlets – New! Savory and delicious! Perfect for using those fresh garden herbs. If you can’t find turkey cutlets, butterflied chicken breasts work just as well. Give this one a little time to marinate before cooking.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/garlic-herb-turkey-cutlets/

Greek Salad – We never tire of this refreshing salad, especially when the tomatoes and cukes are rolling in from the garden.
https://www.spendwithpennies.com/greek-salad/

Baked Salmon with Lemon Butter – The fastest entree you’ll ever throw together. You can have this in the oven in five minutes, tops! I didn’t bother to make the side of lemon butter. Serve with a nice salad or veggie.
https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/keto-baked-salmon-lemon-butter/servings/2

Strawberry Chicken Salad – Don’t let the garlic in the dressing scare you away; you won’t get dragon breath. For the creamiest dressing, try to use your avocado during the fifteen minute sweet spot between unripe and rotten! 🙂
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/clean-eating-strawberry-chicken-salad/

Snack:
Avocado, Raspberry and Crumbled Cheese Toast – New! I love a good avocado toast, and this one makes a perfect breakfast, snack or light lunch.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/avocado-raspberry-cheese-toast/

A lil’ sweet treat for Mark:
Keto Lava Cakes – Yep. It is a theme. Top these babies with fresh raspberries leftover from the avocado toast above, and sprinkle with a zhoosh of powdered Swerve.
https://kirbiecravings.com/keto-lava-cake/

I hope your week goes smoothly and you’re able to find (or order) everything you need from the store!

Real Food Menu for Week of 7.27.2020

It’s time to start planting our zone 7a fall garden. We jumped the gun just a little and planted carrots, peas and cucumbers last night. Our tomatoes in the herb garden are coming along nicely. Something (rabbit? groundhog?) has nipped off the tops of the tomato plants in the veggie garden, so I need to leave a little cayenne surprise out there.

Garden cukes and tomatoes are finally rolling in here in Virginia! In this week’s menu, there are two new recipes to use those up, plus my favorite way to cook fresh or frozen vegetables.

Mark’s Breakfast:
Sausage Breakfast Scramble – Here’s a bowl of savory, comfort food for breakfast. We make the Italian version; omitting the salt and using just one half cup of cheese. But, if you like two cups, toss it in there! I don’t judge.
https://www.southyourmouth.com/2016/07/sausage-breakfast-scramble-low-carb.html

Mark’s Lunch:
Turkey Bacon Swiss on Lettuce Buns. Not so much a recipe, but a sandwich idea. My sandwich is based on the one linked below with a few substitutions. Slice the lettuce cheeks thinly, they don’t compress like bread. These are best assembled just before serving.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/turkey-blt-sandwich-lettuce-bun-recipe/

Dinner:

Quick Cucumber Tomato Za’atar Salad with Honey-Citrus Dressing – New Recipe! Mark loves this one and has already requested it again for next week. It’s super tasty, but the instructions are a little confusing. The olive oil mentioned in step 3 is not in the ingredients list, with no measurement given. Because we wanted a large salad, we doubled the entire recipe and used 1/4 cup olive oil in the dressing.
https://www.easycookingwithmolly.com/2018/03/quick-cucumber-tomato-zaatar-salad/

Balsamic Chicken with Onions – Simple, but flavorful. We like this one with brown rice and broccoli. Whether fresh, or frozen, we don’t steam veggies. Place them in a large cast iron skillet with the fat of your choice (coconut oil, olive oil, butter) and saute until tender crisp. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
https://www.5dollardinners.com/balsamic-chicken-with-onions/

Salmon in Roasted Pepper Sauce – Looks (and tastes) fancy, but so easy to prepare. This one comes together quickly enough for a weeknight dinner.
https://cooktoria.com/salmon-in-roasted-pepper-sauce/

Creamy Greek Pasta Salad – New Recipe! Mark rated this one a 9; he said he could deal with the feta, but not kalamata olives! We use lentil or chickpea pasta because it is less gummy than brown rice pasta. This large salad would be perfect for potlucks or family gatherings.
https://girlheartfood.com/greek-pasta-salad-gluten-free-vegetarian/

Snacks:
Ants on a Log, (Remember these from your childhood? I’ve got some celery singing it’s swan song in the fridge.) Watermelon, Popcorn, Grapes and Bananas.

Treat:
Coconut Milk Panna Cotta – This recipe is tried and true. If you’re unfamiliar, panna cotta is an ultra-smooth Italian pudding made with gelatin and cream. The coconut milk stands in for cream in this dairy-free version.
https://deliciouslyorganic.net/coconut-panna-cotta-dairy-free-gaps-paleo-grain-free/
Topped with Strawberry Chia Jam – I use less honey than the recipe calls for. Adjust to your taste.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/chia-seed-strawberry-jam-clean-eating/

I hope your week is off to a great start!

Real Food Menu for Week of 7.20.2020

When we bought our house 17 years ago, we had nine cherry trees on our land. We met our neighbor, Granny Iris when she came over to ask permission to pick some cherries. She said it was an annual tradition with the prior owners. She and her late husband would back their truck up under the trees and stand in the bed to pick cherries. Because there is a ten acre field between our properties, I asked how she knew the cherries were ripe. She replied “I wait for the birds to start dropping cherry pits in my driveway”. LOL!

Anyway, it’s cherry season in Virginia and I’m happy to sample a new carrot cherry salad recipe this week:

Breakfast for Mark:
Paleo Lemon Blueberry Scones – An old favorite. Scones are great for grab and go breakfasts, or to savor over coffee if you’ve got time in the a.m.
https://cookeatpaleo.com/paleo-lemon-blueberry-scones/

Mark’s Lunch:
Cheeseburger Salad – All the flavors of cheeseburgers, without the drive-thru.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/cheeseburger-salad-bowls-healthy-recipe/

Dinners:

Grilled Chicken Caesar Wraps – New Recipe! Prepare the dressing ahead to let the flavors meld. The next time we make this, we’ll thinly slice the grilled chicken to make these less messy to eat!
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/grilled-chicken-caesar-wraps-clean-eating/

Israeli Chopped Salad – New Recipe! We used a combination of fresh mint and dill in this garden fresh salad.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/israeli-chopped-salad/

Cumulus Spiced Eggs – Dinners that come together in minutes, mean more time for evening gardening. This one is simple and flavorful.
https://thestonesoup.com/blog/2012/07/24/the-5-most-common-dinner-mistakes-and-how-to-avoid-them/


Simple Carrot Cherry Salad – New Recipe!
UPDATE: I found the salad needs double the tahini and lemon juice. It was a little dry as leftovers.

I found a maroon and orange salad for all you Hokie fans! Now I just need one in navy and orange. Ha ha! This one is a split decision, as Mark doesn’t care for tahini. He said “I love the carrots and the cherries.” Pretty sure he was just being polite. Check it out and tell me what you think.
http://veggingattheshore.com/2016/06/simple-carrot-cherry-salad/

Snacks:
Watermelon, cherries, strawberries and raspberries. We’re sticking with fresh fruit this week. It’s too hot for anything else.

Treat:
Pina Colada Green Smoothie – If fresh fruit doesn’t do the trick, we’ve got a few of these packets ready to pop into the blender.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/pina-colada-smoothies/

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Real Food Menu for Week of 7.13.2020

Since I’ve been on the Mediterranean diet, I’ve been in a bit of a fruit and nuts rut where snacks are concerned. I’ve recently found za’atar spice, and this one is a game-changer! I want to sprinkle this Middle Eastern seasoning onto nearly everything. Delicious on fish and chicken, it would be equally at home in place of Italian seasoning in salads and savory side dishes. (Say that three times fast!) I found za’atar locally at Kroger. See how we’re seasoning and snacking with it below.

Breakfast:
PBJ Overnight Oats – An old standby, and perfect for hot (already!) summer mornings.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/clean-eating-pb-j-overnight-oats/

Lunch:
Convert Kale Salad – We mixed up a double batch of this favorite salad for Mark to enjoy at lunch. It’s been so hot here that a cool plate of salad and a sliver of watermelon are all he really wants mid-day.
http://belated-bloomer.blogspot.com/

Dinner:

Marinated Three Bean Salad – New Recipe! – Here’s a Mediterranean twist on the traditional three bean salad. If the dressing is too tart for your liking, add a touch of honey. Just a teaspoon should do.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/marinated-3-bean-salad/

Middle Eastern Chicken Kebabs – Oh my word! Sprinkle some za’atar on these babies! When we’re cooking for a crowd, we use bamboo skewers, but when it’s just the two of us, we use stainless.
https://mythreeseasons.com/middle-eastern-chicken-kebabs/
Basic Tahini Sauce
https://mythreeseasons.com/tahini-dressing/

Grilled Peach Quinoa Salad with Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette – New Recipe! The unusual flavor combos in this dish surprised us. I never would have paired peaches and kalamata olives together, but it works beautifully! Make a little extra dressing; it might just become a new favorite.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/healthy-grilled-peach-quinoa-salad/

Bowl of Doom – The name sounds ominous, but this dish is filled with all good things. Use whatever ground meat you have on hand, or go meatless for a vegetarian option. Packed with protein, it’s delicious any time of the day.
https://thedefineddish.com/bowl-of-doom-sweet-potato-and-bison-breakfast-hash/

Snacks:
Watermelon, Cucumber slices with hummus, Za’atar Snack – New! Take dipping bread in olive oil one step further with this flavorful snack. There’s no real recipe here, just dip crusty bread in good olive oil and then lightly dip in za’atar spice and eat.

Treat:
Avocado, Coconut and Sweet Potato Brownies – New Recipe – This one is a bit of a swing and a miss, but I thought I would share it anyway. While the flavor was good, the texture was just a bit…off. These remind me of that time I made a batch of fudge that just never quite set up. YMMV.
https://www.healthy-holistic-living.com/delicious-avocado-coconut-sweet-potato-brownies/

If you’re looking for something closer to a conventional brownie, give these a whirl:

Double Dark Chocolate Brownies: We like Lily’s chocolate chips in this recipe. They’re becoming easier to find now, even Walmart carries them in the baking aisle.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/clean-eating-double-dark-chocolate-brownies/

Have a great week, everyone!

Real Food Menu for Week of 7.6.2020

I took a little blogging break to visit with my family and the sea. To enjoy views like this…

…and this:

And find treasure like this:

It’s hotter than blue blazes in Virginia, and will be for the foreseeable future, so I’m officially declaring it Salad Week! Refreshing salads and prep ahead dinners are the order of the day.

Today’s menu is a bit of a departure from our usual breakfast/lunch/dinner format, but I hope you’ll forgive me. I’m still intermittent fasting until late afternoon, and Mark has been just as happy to have oatmeal and raisins for breakfast and leftovers for lunch.

Here’s our weekly nosh:

Convert Kale Salad – We’ve made this salad regularly for three years (Yep. I checked!) and haven’t tired of it yet. Prepare it the night before to give the dressing time to work it’s magic by softening the kale.
http://belated-bloomer.blogspot.com/2016/01/a-little-wrap-up-of-these-finals-days.html


Cherry Tomato and White Bean Salad – Such a simple but flavorful dish. On these hot nights, I’m just as happy with a cool, bean salad as I would be with a meat and three. As an added bonus, this salad goes together in minutes.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/cherry-tomato-white-bean-salad/


Lemony Cucumber and Tomato Tuna Salad – A perennial favorite. We sub English cucumbers for the avocado.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/eat-clean-lemony-avocado-tuna-salad/

Stuffed Bell Peppers – Because I’m no longer doing keto, I add a little pre-cooked brown rice to the filling. These freeze well, so make a few extra to keep on hand for one of those too-busy-to-cook evenings.
https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/stuffed-peppers-with-ground-beef-and-cheese

Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken – I like to prep the fruit and veggies ahead of time. Served with brown rice, this one is a crowd pleaser!
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/sheet-pan-hawaiian-chicken-clean-eating/

Fresh Corn Salad

  • Servings: 8 servings
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

This gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian salad is perfect for your summer cookouts. The dressing is simple, tangy and light.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh white corn (or frozen, thawed – approximately 24 oz.)
  • 2 medium slicer tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large English cucumber, chopped
  • ½ of one green bell pepper, chopped
  • For the Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first four ingredients.
  2. Place the dressing ingredients in a mason jar. Cover, and shake vigorously to combine.
  3. Pour the dressing over the corn mixture and toss to coat. Serve.

http://www.arthurizedhome.com

Broccoli and Red Cabbage Salad with Tangy Peanut Butter Dressing – It’s high time to bring back this little number. Dress this salad just before serving. Excess dressing is delicious served over shredded cabbage the next day.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/broccoli-red-cabbage-salad-tangy-pb-dressing/

Snacks: Homemade trail mix has been my go-to the past few weeks. No recipe needed for this healthy, portable snack. Just create a mixture of your favorite dried fruit and nuts. Lately I’ve been enjoying a mixture of walnuts, pecans and almonds with raisins, cranberries and apricots. Toss in some dried coconut if you like.

Treat:
Skinny Chocolate Fruit Dip – I made a huge batch of this (septupled the recipe!) and brought it to the beach. My nieces pounded it, then loudly demanded that I make more. Just kidding, they politely requested a second batch. They dipped apple slices, fresh strawberries and bananas in this magical confection. I substitute honey for the coconut sugar. If you’ve got a little Godiva liqueur on hand, try that instead of the vanilla. It’s dandy!
https://happihomemade.com/chocolate-fruit-dip/

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go water the garden for the second time today. Or is it the third? I’ve lost track!

Have a fresh and healthy week!

Real Food Menu for Week of 6.15.2020

We’ve got loads of Mexican flavors going on this week; and I guess we’ve officially become those cauliflower-can-become-anything people! The cheesy cauliflower nachos are a surprise hit and while they don’t have the crunch of nachos made with tortillas, all the flavors are there. Here’s what’s cooking this week:

Breakfast:
Oatmeal with raisins, walnuts and bananas – While I’m fasting in the morning, Mark is loving this simple and satisfying breakfast. Prepare rolled oats (gluten free if needed) according to the package directions, add raisins to the cooking liquid so they rehydrate while the oats cook. Top as desired. He likes a drizzle of maple syrup and a pat of butter with this breakfast.

Lunch:
Low Carb Taco Casserole – Meal prep this on Sunday and you’re ready for the week. Substitute ground turkey for the beef to lighten these up a little. To punch up the flavor, I add an extra tablespoon of Clean Food Crush’s taco seasoning. Mix up some extra to keep on hand. We use it on all things taco.
https://www.eatingonadime.com/low-carb-taco-casserole-recipe/
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/homemade-taco-seasoning/

Dinner:

Strawberry Chicken Salad with Avocado Dressing – Time to fire up that grill. It’s important to use an avocado that is guac-ready in this dressing. If not, the dressing will be bitter, instead of creamy. Listen to the voice of regret.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/clean-eating-strawberry-chicken-salad/

Cheesy Cauliflower Nachos – New Recipe! These are sensational and perfect for Meatless Monday. We tried these for the first time a few weeks ago, and it’s safe to say this dish will be in regular rotation.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/cheesy-cauliflower-nachos/

Garlic Butter Turkey Meatballs with Lemon Zucchini Noodles – An old favorite!
https://www.eatwell101.com/garlic-butter-meatballs-with-lemon-zucchini-noodles

Fresh Cucumber Salad – New Recipe! Because the balsamic darkens the color of the cucumbers, this salad doesn’t photograph well. Don’t let that deter you. She’s a good one!
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/cucumber-salad/

Snacks: Apples and peanut butter, bananas, popcorn – we’re not feeling particularly inspired in this department. Sometimes tried and true is best.

Treat:
Grilled Pineapple with Honey and Ricotta – Yum! While you’ve got the grill screaming hot for that chicken, place a few rings of pineapple on the side. Dessert is done in no time!
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/grilled-pineapple-ricotta-honey-clean-eating/

Thank you for taking time out of your day to read here. I sincerely appreciate it. Have a great week!

Real Food Menu for Week of 6.8.2020

Have you ever upended your entire house for no good reason? We did just that this weekend in a fit of decluttering. We moved furniture around in every room of our home except for the kitchen and bath. It’s well worth it, in the extra space and functionality that we gained, but man, I’m whooped.

Here is this week’s menu:

Breakfast:
Apple Pie Overnight Oats – Mark is loving the breakfast oats. We use Aldi’s unsweetened natural applesauce in this recipe.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/apple-pie-overnight-oats-jar/

Lunch:
Paleo Broccoli Salad with Bacon – New! Love that this one has *just enough* mayo without being gloppy. The apple cider vinegar adds a little tang to that dressing.
https://cookeatpaleo.com/broccoli-salad-with-bacon/

Dinner:

Chicken Sausage, Kale and Red Potato Soup – Big ol’ bowl of comfort food for a cool evening later in the week.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/kale-potato-soup/

Baked Garlic Parmesan Salmon
https://healthstartsinthekitchen.com/baked-garlic-parmesan-salmon-primal-low-carb-keto/

Pizza Baked Chicken – Add whatever pizza toppings you like to this dish. Mr. Arthur is a pepperoni guy, so that’s what we make.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/clean-eating-pizza-baked-chicken/

Cauliflower Rice Tabbouleh – One dish I really miss since going gluten-free is tabbouleh. This recipe scratches that g-free itch. If I’m pressed for time, I use frozen, riced cauliflower. Since we don’t have a microwave, I saute it on the stove top for a few minutes, ’til softened.
https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/cauliflower-rice-tabbouleh

Snacks: Watermelon, bananas, apples and peanut butter, popcorn.

Treat:
Ripe Strawberries and Freshly Whipped Cream – Sometimes simple is best! A sprinkle of Lily’s chocolate chips doesn’t hurt anything.

Have a fantastic week, everyone!

Real Food Menu for Week of 6.1.2020

Last fall, I planted a hardneck variety of garlic in the herb garden. You can read about that here. The scapes have grown and are curling which means it’s time to harvest them. They have a lovely mild garlic flavor when cooked, but I’m using them raw in one of this week’s recipes for a punch of garlic flavor. Don’t worry, they’re not as strong as cloves of garlic.

Garlic Scapes

We’ve been busy in the Arthurized Home Test Kitchens and I’m loading you up with four new recipes this week. Because, why the heck not? Let’s get to it:

Breakfast:
Just Peachy Oatmeal Breakfast Bake – New Recipe! To make this nutrient dense breakfast bake, I adapted a dessert recipe from Kroger’s My Magazine.

Just Peachy Oatmeal Breakfast Bake

  • Servings: 6 servings
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Gluten-free, easy and satisfying breakfast. If you’ve got fresh fruit, adjust the recipe based on what’s in season. Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt or a splash of milk.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (1 stick) plus one teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans (reserve some for the top)
  • 1 cup milk (I use almond or coconut)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 12 oz. bag frozen peaches, thawed, cut into ½ inch pieces (reserve some for the top)
  • Optional toppings: Greek yogurt or milk of your choice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 3 quart baking dish using one teaspoon of butter. Melt the remaining stick of butter.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add melted butter, maple syrup, milk and eggs to the dry ingredients and mix well. Gently fold in peaches.
  3. Pour mixture into baking dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle reserved peaches and pecan pieces on top. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes or until set.
  4. Let cool slightly. When serving, top with Greek yogurt or a splash of milk as desired. Refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.

Lunch:
Chop Chop Fresh Veggie Salad – Cool, crunchy and little bit tart, this salad is a warm weather favorite.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/chop-chop/

AND

Fresh Corn Salad – New Recipe! I like this best using white corn, but if you’re in the middle of a global pandemic with only yellow corn available, yellow corn it is! This dressing would be great on most any garden salad.

Fresh Corn Salad

  • Difficulty: Easy

Dinner:

15 Minute Cowboy Butter Chicken with Zucchini Noodles – Easy peasy! Quick dinners leave more time for enjoying the outdoors in the evening.
https://www.eatwell101.com/cowboy-butter-chicken-and-zucchini-noodles

Garlic Butter Salmon and Red Potatoes – No muss, no fuss and dinner is on the table in minutes.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/one-sheet-pan-garlic-butter-salmon/

Amazing Apricot Chicken – New Recipe! Company worthy chicken! We use 1 tsp. of chicken stock concentrate.
https://www.hellofresh.com/recipes/amazing-apricot-chicken-5915b11d4f78db20234cb0c2

Snacks:
Garlic Scape Pesto – New Recipe and so versatile! Try this on pasta, with roasted peppers, kalamata olives and a sprinkle of parm. Or just have it as a dip or spread. We’ll nosh on this with gluten-free crackers and carrot sticks.
https://www.agardenforthehouse.com/2012/06/garlic-scape-pesto/

Treat:
Skinny Chocolate Fruit Dip for One – Or do what I do: double the batch and make enough for two! We like a sprinkle of Lily’s chocolate chips. This dip is delicious with strawberries or orange slices.
https://happihomemade.com/chocolate-fruit-dip/

I hope your week is off to a great start and filled with all good things!

Real Food Menu for Week of 5.25.2020

A friend pointed out to me that you really can’t have Memorial Day weekend without a big ol’ cheeseburger, so we’re taking that under advisement and firing up the grill today. My gluten-free, real food, Mediterranean Diet version will be turkey cheeseburgers on lettuce buns with a side of grilled corn on the cob. To make the lettuce buns, slice ‘cheeks’ off a head of iceberg lettuce. Pro tip: Slice them thinner than you think you should; they don’t compress like a good ol’ conventional hamburger bun.

For my American readers, take a moment today to reflect on the sacrifices of those who have lost their lives for the freedoms that we enjoy.

Here is our menu for the week:

Breakfast:
Breakfast Egg Muffins with Ham – I use spinach, roasted red pepper strips (jarred, I’m not a maniac!) and mozzarella cheese.
https://www.foodfaithfitness.com/breakfast-egg-muffins-with-ham/

Lunch:
15 Minute Skillet Chicken Fajitas – New Recipe! I like to prep brown rice on the weekend to have on hand for quick dinners like this one. If you’re not a lover of spicy foods, I recommend starting with 1/2 tsp. and increase the cayenne to your liking from there. Two teaspoons of cayenne might just burn your taste buds off entirely.

Turkey Burgers on Lettuce Buns – Classic warm weather holiday weekend food…with a g-free, low carb twist. No recipe to follow, just combine ground turkey with a little salt and pepper and grill to perfection. Serve on lettuce buns with your favorite toppings.

Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala – New Recipe! – Since I haven’t yet joined the cult of Instant Pot, I’m glad this recipe has stove top directions for us dinosaurs. This dish is not too spicy, but you can kick it up a notch if you like.

Lemony Avocado and Tomato Tuna Salad – Mark’s not on Team Avocado, so we sub in English cucumbers for that. It’s every bit as delightful.

One Pan Honey Garlic Sausage and Veggies – Yum! We use the Never Any! brand of nitrate free Italian chicken sausage from Aldi. In other news, Mark tried asparagus for the first time in a long time, and didn’t hate it! Which is a really great thing because we just planted two massive rows of it in the garden.

Snacks:
We’re mostly noshing on fruit these days; watermelons are plentiful and cheap. Also bananas, apples and berries. And popcorn. Always popcorn.

Paleo Lemon Blueberry Scones – New Recipe! These are so simple and delicious. The brightness of the lemon plays Best Supporting Actress to those sweet blueberries. Great combo. As with most preservative-free, real food treats, store these babies in the fridge or freezer.

Have a safe and meaningful Memorial Day!

Real Food Menu for Week of 5.18.2020

We’re coming off a fun and busy weekend. We had dinner and hung out with Pa Kettle on Friday night. On Saturday, we had our group run, participated in a “we miss you” parade for a friend and then went back to Pa Kettle’s house for some gardening fun. He taught me how to plant corn and we picked three huge bags of dill. We dug up a few small cedar trees and several white lilacs to transplant here.

I’ve got four new recipes for you this week. Here is the menu:

Breakfast:
Blueberry Pie Overnight Oatmeal – New Recipe! Mark raved about these.

Lunch:
Chicken Rice Soup – Yum! Comfort food at it’s best.

Dinner: (We plan four dinners each week to leave room in the schedule for a leftovers night or to eat out.)

Strawberry Avocado Salad – New Recipe! We learned three things the first time we ate this salad:
1) Mr. Arthurized Home still dislikes avocado.
2) Mr. Arthurized Home added asiago cheese to the extensive list of Foods He Dislikes.
3) Mr. Arthurized Home would swim laps in a vat of that Honey Lime dressing. (Seriously. Try it! It’s that good.)

Cauliflower Pizza – We love this crust! I substitute ground flaxseed for the psyillium husks.

Cod in Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce – New Recipe! Not the prettiest dish on the planet, but a savory, light meal that won’t leave you feeling weighed down.

Easy Vegetarian Chili – New Recipe! I was a little concerned that vegetarian chili would just taste like, well, vegetable soup with beans, but this one surprised me! Look for good quality refried beans without inflammatory oils; I used Kroger’s Simple Truth Organic brand.

Snacks:
Watermelon – served nightly! Popcorn and the usual fruits: Bananas, apples, and berries.

Treat:
Peanut Butter Fruit Dip – Try this with chilled red grapes; all the flavors of a PBJ, none of that carb-laden bread! If dips are your thing, you may be interested in this post, or this one.

Have a fantastic week!
