Well this was supposed to have been published last Tuesday....better late than never :)
These next 2 weeks I am kick starting some serious (yes...again) weightloss. I am eating an elimination diet, no dairy, only certain oils and meats, no carbs, no sugar, no starchy veggies, no stuff I can't pronounce, so if you notice any of that in my recipes I have substituted or it's in their just for hubby and I've removed it in my portion. I love that I found so many of my recipes that cooperated with this cleanse!!
Here are this week's 5 meals, one of each meat type, with some additional notes to add to what I've already mentioned in my meat breakdown:
Monday - Turkey
A good ol' Granny's turkey roasted to perfection....this is not still leftovers from Thanksgiving, this is from my turkey I cooked back in summer, and no I'm not tired of it yet! For myself I'm serving it with Sensational But Simple Salad minus the dressing, which I'm not sure yet what I'll sub with , but for hubs I'm making it 'Sean style', mixed with a condensed soup mix and noodles with mushrooms. That was his formula when baching it, meat+condensed soup+pasta/rice+canned mushrooms, alternate poultry, pork beef, and alternate cream of chicken, tomato, and cheese soup. Yikes! But he loves it.
Tuesday - Seafood
Nothing like a stirfy to get in LOTS of veggies in your meal :) With this stirfry Curry Seafood Steamer I can pack in a lot of flavor with curry without a lot of condiments/sauces full of chemicals and/or fat. I won't be eating the potatoes in it, but that's ok, I'm also adding carrots and snap peas, so I'm sure it will be filling. And I'm going to make it in my Actifry, it does stirfry with only 1 tbsp oil!! Coconut oil at that....yum!
Wednesday - Beef
Spanish Rice with Beef with lean beef tenderloin strips instead of ground beef is another meal that can be low on fat, especially with just spices and not sauces, with a great mix of a lot of veggies. I'll be removing the corn for me, and will be serving with brown rice for Sean and lentils for myself.
Thursday - Chicken
I mentioned last week how much I love Italian dressing, and Lemon Dill Chicken is another reason why, especially because this sauce is great for baking potatoes in as well. That will be for Sean though, I will be enjoying this with just a side of asparagus.
Friday - Seafood
Yes, we're having seafood again, this time fish. I've been excited to try this Creamy Pesto Fish , I love Pesto, it's such a yummy and natural 'sauce', never thought to try it with fish...anything to make fish yummy :) And did you know mayonnaise actually has no dairy? Go figure...I can eat it! YAY! Sean will be having this over rice but I'm just going to have it with peas salted with sea salt.
