I overhauled my eating habits 8 days ago and I would like to know what healthy minded people eat on a regular basis. I don't want to get bored. I have lost 6 pounds since the Sunday before last.

For me tonight:
6 oz seared scallops with 1/2 lemon
1 oz hard parmesan
2 oz tomato
4 oz yellow carrots
1 Tbsp ranch

Water which is what I have always drank after 2 pm

That sounds really good. I'll have to give the coconut oil a try on a potato.
I forgot to add that I had a medium bunch of green grapes.

I do the dark color grapes as they have more anti-oxidants and less sugar.

Also another option for the mushroom
on toast with avocado
sweet onion
and spring mix



Sometimes
Melted goat cheese and grilled onion on tortilla
with hummus and avocado side.
salad (spring mix) with Greek dressing

Lunch today was an Amy's vegetarian meal, meatloaf. It is one of my favorite frozen meals. I also like their Mattar Paneer, it's good healthy food for when I'm too tired to mess with preparing my own.

I am not a vegetarian, but my wife was for years. It was kinna tough because she was a veggie and I am a hunter. We worked it out over the years, but I have grown an affinity for some of the vegan and vegetarian dishes she has introduced me to.

I also now love Indian food. Man, can those guys rustle grub!

Dinner last night was Khafta kabob(3 of them, about 1/2 lb of beef), and steamed cauliflower, with lousiana hot sauce and 2 low-carb tortillas, for a total of about 9 carbs. I don't count calories or fat. Why? Because fat doesen't make you fat. Sugar does.

I totally agree about the Indian folk. It's my day off so I'm being lazy and having another Amy's meal. This time mattar paneer. Mmmm, mmmm, the only thing better is going to an Indian restaurant and having the real thing.

Tonight I think I'm doing brown rice, asparagus, and chicken breast. I admit I do jasmine rice more often than brown but I'm trying to mix it up.

I have this packet of Moroccan honey sauce I might try on the chicken.

At my house, "Laurel's Kitchen" and the Moosewood low fat cookbook share shelf space with James Beard and a few bbq books. It ends up being a sort of happy medium.

Tonight: tamale pie, made with lean ground beef, some organic hippy brand of refried beans my sweety bought, Rotel tomatoes and chilis, seasoned with my super secret "die after reading" Northern New Mexico spices, all wrapped up in a homemade masa dough.

I've been on a chicken or turkey veggie soup kick for 2 weeks, seriously cannot get enough of it. I've been rendering 5 gals of stock and making a base, then modifying each night with different spices and veggies. top it off with a salad and I don't have to worry about whats for dinner for the week, plus my dog loves a bit of broth on her food. it's great for having something quick and NOW when im in the middle of a project. I think ill add lemongrass, lime and coconut milk to tonight's batch.

Just cleaned my garden spot this weekend. Got several quart of ripe and green tomatoes and pepper.
Tossed them all in a big pot and cooke them slow for about 3hrs
Chopped two large onions, caramelized them in a skillet and into the pot with them.
Added 4lbs lean ground beef browned in the skillet I used for the onions.
Hand-full each
Chile powder blend
Ancho chili powder
Ground cumin
Two chipolte peppers
Granulated garlic
Teaspoon + Orsa salt
3 cans red kidney beans (yes I'm lazy but it was more a time thing)
Simmered for about another hour.

Came out not bad considering it started with clearing the garden, finding all that I did and ask my self, now what?

Yum!
Tomorrow, I'm going to try it on a baked potato.
