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.

Mark’s Lunch:
Cheeseburger Salad – All the flavors of cheeseburgers, without the drive-thru.

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!

Israeli Chopped Salad – New Recipe! We used a combination of fresh mint and dill in this garden fresh salad.

Cumulus Spiced Eggs – Dinners that come together in minutes, mean more time for evening gardening. This one is simple and flavorful.

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.

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.

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Meal Prep for Week of 8.25.2019

The garden produce is slowing down a little, but we’re still up to our eyeballs in fresh herbs. The herb garden has become my happy place. (Well, in addition to Sunset Beach, the greenway, any ol’ clearance rack and, and, and…!) I absolutely love strolling out there to snip something fresh to add to our meals. I’ve got four new recipes for you this week, including a few vegetarian options:

Breakfast:
Keto Coconut Porridge – New Recipe! This porridge has an almost savory, mild, coconut flavor; which we enjoy. It’s quick and easy to prepare. However, we’re pounding through one can of coconut milk per day, so that adds up over the course of a week. We’ll likely reserve this one for occasional breakfasts going forward.
Recipes from Diet Doctor can be scaled to the number of servings needed. Don’t scale the salt in this recipe. Ask me how I know that.
https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/keto-coconut-porridge/servings/2

Lunch:
Turkey, Bacon and Swiss on a Lettuce Bun – Slice “cheeks” from a head of iceberg lettuce to make the bun. I like my sandwich with spicy dijon mustard.

Dinner:

Tuscan Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Creamy Garlic Sauce – New Recipe!
https://www.savorytooth.com/sun-dried-tomato-chicken/?utm_source=pinterest&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=BlogButton

Garlicky Parmesan Zucchini Bake – New Recipe! We’ll serve this with a piece of fish or grilled chicken.
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/garlicky-parmesan-zucchini-bake-clean-eating/

Annnnnd sometimes you add the parsley too early. Oops!

Oh well, I happen to love parsley and don’t think a half cup is too much for this recipe. I also love garlic, and this made the house smell like a pizzeria while it was baking. Broiling it for a few minutes with a little extra parmesan on top is always a good idea.

Cumulus Spiced Eggs – Super quick dinner! You can have this meal on the table in twenty minutes, start to finish. The eggs are the start of this show, so I recommend pastured eggs if available.

Garlic Butter Salmon from this recipe:

Chop Chop Fresh Veggie Salad – New Recipe! This salad is so tasty! To reduce carbs, I left the chickpeas out altogether, and I’m serving the olives and feta on the side, because a certain someone doesn’t care for them. *ahem*
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/chop-chop/

Snacks:
Mine: Gouda Snacking Cheese, Celery and Peanut Butter. Meh.
Hubby: Watermelon, grapes, bananas, Tiny but Mighty Popcorn…

Treat: Coconut Milk Panna Cotta topped with Chia Seed Strawberry Jam – To decrease the carbs, swap the honey in the panna cotta for a tablespoon (or so) of your favorite low-carb sweetener. I used Swerve.

Same here. Deep-six the honey for a couple teaspoons of low-carb sweetener.

Real Food Meal Prep for Week of 4.14.19

My husband decided that his first full marathon should be America’s toughest road race, the Blue Ridge Marathon with its 7,430 feet of elevation gain/loss. I’m very proud to say that he successfully completed it, so we’re taking it easy on meal prep today. We’ve planned a few tried and true meals this week.

Breakfast:
Berry Smoothies – Frozen berries (we like strawberries and blueberries), coconut milk, a banana for sweetness, a small handful of baby spinach and/or a half an avocado. Add ice cubes if needed and blend. If you like a sweeter smoothie, add honey to taste.

Berries and Cream Overnight Oats

Berries and Cream Overnight Oats

Lunch:
Chicken Pineapple Curry – This is an easy favorite that we’ve made for several years now. It’s creamy and mild, but you could certainly add some heat if you like. Use one can of coconut milk if you prefer a thicker sauce. We usually serve this over cauliflower rice, or brown rice.

Dinner:
Bowl of Doom – Don’t let the name deter you, there is nothing ominous about this breakfast hash. Simple and satisfying, this recipe feeds two and you can arm-wrestle over the leftovers for lunch the next day. Or fry a couple more eggs, add a veggie side and you’ve got a nice dinner for four. I give the sweet potatoes a 1/4″ dice; and use either ground beef or Jimmy Dean Natural sausage, depending on what’s on hand. If using sausage, I do not add salt.

Bowl of Doom

Shepherd’s Pie
Beef and Vegetable Filling:
1 lb. ground beef
1 T. coconut oil
1/2 c. diced onions, optional
3 – 4 large carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 bag of frozen peas, thawed
12 oz. tomato sauce
1 t. garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c. cheddar cheese, grated – for topping

In a large pan over medium heat, thoroughly brown the ground beef. Remove beef from the pan and set aside. Melt the coconut oil, then saute the onion and carrots until tender. Add the beef, spices and tomato sauce. Mix well, then fold in the peas.

Mashed Potatoes – Two real food options:
Bob Evans Natural Mashed Potatoes are made with the same ingredients you would use at home; Potatoes, Milk, Butter and Salt.
OR
Homemade:
8 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 c. plain sour cream
8 T. unsalted butter
1 c. milk
salt and pepper to taste
Add the cubed potatoes to a large pot of boiling water and cook until fork tender. Drain the water and return the potatoes to the pot. Add the sour cream, butter, milk, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher to desired consistency. Add more milk if needed.

Spread the beef mixture into a buttered 9″ x 9″ casserole dish, and spoon the mashed potatoes over to cover. Bake at 350° for an hour, covered. Uncover, sprinkle cheddar cheese on top and broil for two minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Serve.

This dish can be assembled up to a day ahead of time, refrigerated and baked just before serving.


Clean convenience food. Make sure that it says All Natural, not Original.
Made with: Potatoes, Milk, Butter and Salt.

Teriyaki Salmon

Teriyaki Salmon

Cumulus Spiced Eggs – Such a simple and tasty dinner! We tried this recipe for the first time last week; my husband loved it and suggested that we put it on the menu this week. This comes together so quickly! I had dinner on the table in under 20 minutes, start to finish. I used two teaspoons of coriander, a jar of organic marinara sauce and added a smidgen of crushed red pepper flakes. I knew that trying to sneak goat’s cheese past my husband would be a step too far, so I used shredded cheddar on top.
