Today was a great day! If I can keep up this pace, i’ll be giving Jessica Alba a run for her money! Breakfast consisted of last nights leftovers, had a nice snack of “clean” turkey, half an avacado, and an “Ambrosia” organic apple….sounds fancy, huh? Id never heard of an “Ambrosia” apple but it def lived up to its tasty little name. Lunch wasnt as clean as my snack, but whats a traveling nurse to do?! It was a hardees bacon burger minus cheese, bun, and sauces, with tomato, onion, and lettuce, and it filled a void and kept me going! And then, for my grand finale, a.k.a supper, I invented (or re-invented) yet another yummy meal that looked like this:
(if that pic is tiny, I apologize, still blogging mobilely)
And THAT my friends is a stuffed bell pepper! What was that?! You want the recipe?! Ok, fine…
4-5 large bell peppers, tops off, seeds removed
1 pound grass-fed beef
1 red onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small bag of shredded carrots
2 zuchinni, shredded
1 small cauliflower, turned into “rice” via food processor
2Tbsp cumin, ground
2Tbsp chili powder
1-2Tbsp of ghee or coconut oil
Saute onion and garlic in oil/butter until tender, add in beef and cook until…cooked. Mix beef/garlic/onion mix with all your prepped vegetables in a big ass bowl. Add in spices, and mix, mix, mix! Find an ambitous, excitable, 6-year old and let her/him stuff those bell peppers slap full! Or you can do it, but I promise it’ll be less entertaining. Place the peppers on a baking sheet and cook at 375 for about 45min. I served mine with homemade gaucamole, and it was delicious!
The best part, there was a great deal of leftover stuffing, so I added 6 eggs, mixed, mixed, mixed and pour the batter into a well greased 12 muffin, muffin pan. And just like magic, breakfast is prepped for in the morning. Now, I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I AM a genius, I get it from my mama 😉
So I figure i’ll put the uncooked muffins in the fridge, and bake them in the a.m. and if there are STILL leftovers, I got a snack too?! What, WHAT?! Its like the gift that just keeps giving!
So, as I stated, t’was a great day. I had tons of energy, even in the midst of recovering from my cold. I didnt experience any cravings, and once again didn’t experience any midday drag! I did get a headache this afternoon, but recognized it for what it was, popped some ibuprofen, slammed some water and just kept truckin’.
Until tomorrow, goodnight all!
