I got my food plan from my doctor. It’s called No Sugar, No Starch.
My husband makes better dinners than I do. Tonight he made “Indian” Butter Chicken, made with sauted onions, garlic, tomato paste, gram masala and tandoori seasoning which I love! Tonight we had mushrooms, broccoli and cauliflower added. He and our son had theirs with rice, while I get more veggies and chicken in mine! Mmm. If you like mushrooms, we add them to these dishes also.
Last night, instead of making stuffed peppers, because we needed to go shopping, we had lots of chopped peppers, added in with the scrambled hamburg, onions, garlic, spinach and diced tomatoes were added-again, the guys had rice on the side.
I also love “Spinach Scramble”-another favorite dish. It is scrambled hamburg, with onions and garlic and italian seasonings, with a small dash of Worcestershire sauce. Add fresh or frozen spinach, when everything is heated through, make a space in the middle to add 2 beaten eggs until cooked through.
One more favorite: Saute onions and garlic in olive oil–“of course” add any kind of sliced sausage coins or scrambled sausage. Add mixed frozen wax and yellow beans or stir fry veggies.
Yesterday for lunch I had frozen broccoli and cauliflower with butter and then I added a slice of cheddar cheese, and some leftover chicken.
I think sometime I should try those “mock” mashed potatoes made with cauliflower instead. I bet they would be good with cheddar cheese and fresh chives.
If you live near a Costco, I buy my string cheese, romaine lettuce, some produce,frozen Kirkland italian meatballs, pepperoni-(when I can find it) and bacon there. The bacon is labelled low sodium black and red labelled sliced naturally hardwood smoked Kirkland bacon. It’s the only one I found that doesn’t have sugar.
The Kirkland frozen meatballs have a little flour and a little sugar, but I still eat them when the family is having pasta-a serving is 5 meatballs, -I just like to eat them with extra chunky sauce. I think their sauce is good too-that may have some sugar too and it comes in Atlas canning jars. I also like the one with sausage in it, for extra protein.
I’ve never been a big salad eater, especially when it’s cold, but I love having some avocado, and red onions on my salad, with balsamic vinegar and oil and sometimes I crumble on feta or blue cheese.
Another salad I like is broccoli salad with red onion, cherry or grape tomatoes and bacon crumbles. If you can get light cream where you live, you can mix just a bit with a bit of mayonnaise and drizzle it on. If you can’t get light cream, I add a bit of heavy cream and half and half together-it makes light cream. I hope these inspire you! 🙂
For breakfast that you can take with you, you can make little mini-omelets, in muffin tins. Add whatever veggies you like to beaten eggs. -Onion, spinach, mushrooms, then bake in muffin cups. When cool you can freeze in sandwich baggies and reheat them in a microwave in a napkin. You can also bake your bacon ahead of time, on cookie cooling racks on top of a jelly-roll pan. Then freeze, and take out what you want out of freezer baggies. I’d do that ahead of time, but my son would eat up all my bacon! lol! Best wishes for healthy eating!
