1. My lovely lady made a tasty variation on Paula Deen's Magic Peanut Butter Cookies. Mad used organic almond butter and some organic pumpkin spice to make it more interesting. Me likes. :-)
2. I started a new experiment. I'm testing the effect of an Atkins bar vs. pumpkin seeds vs. an all natural (higher carb) bar on my blood sugar levels. I'll include the results later this week.
3. I tried out another brand of stevia (SweetLeaf) from Whole Foods Market. I ran out of my favorite brand of stevia and decided to give it a go. I don't like it nearly as much - as my usual Now Foods standbys. Monday Dinner - picante chicken (from Whole Foods Market - dark meat chicken with some kind of spicy seasoning) and organic avocado slices
Tuesday Dinner - "jalapeno poppers" (jalapenos stuffed with organic cream cheese, organic sour cream, feta chesse, organic chives, orangic shallots, fresh cracked organic pepper and sea salt) topped with sharp cheddar cheese and organic chipotle salsa Wednesday Dinner - "breakfast for dinner" (sunny-side up organic omega-3 eggs over homemade mashed cauliflower and pan-fried prosciutto) Thursday Dinner - homemade scallops and homemade creamed spinach (organic spinach, organic onion, organic cream cheese, organic butter (to saute the onion), fresh cracked organic pepper and sea salt Friday Dinner - organic Roma tomatoes gutted and stuffed with a soft cheese/herb blend (organic cream cheese, soft goat cheese, organic sour cream, natural pepperoni, fresh organic thyme, dried organic rosemary and fresh cracked organic pepper) and topped with organic provolone cheese
Saturday Dinner - leftover turkey "cowboy" burger (dark meat turkey burger embedded with natural turkey bacon, cheddar cheese, jalapeno pepper and purple onions) topped with melted cheddar cheese
Sunday Brunch - organic, omega-3 cheesy eggs (organic DHA-enriched eggs, a splash of organic half and half, sharp cheddar and organic Parmesan cheese, fresh organic chives, fresh cracked organic pepper and sea salt) natural bacon and organic avocado
We're going sailing today! A first for me and Mad hasn't gone sailing for many years. It should be fun! But I'll be keeping an eye out for pirates and sharks just in case ...
