Steak wraps with egg
I am so bugged that my phone died and I didn’t get all the pictures but last night I was on my own for dinner and I made steak wraps with scrambled eggs for the kiddo and me.
I grilled the steak on both sides for about 7 minutes and then sliced thin. Used romaine lettuce as the shell and a few shreds of Colby jack cheese with scrambled eggs on top.
It was wonderful. I will remake it and post pictures.
Sushi and sashimi lunch combo
Looks great doesn’t it? It tasted delicious. AND then I got back to work and my stomach flopped and now I want to die. Curl up in a corner and die. (Maybe a little dramatic) but I reminded me why grains aren’t too great for you.
Last night I completed a yoga meditation session. It was 29 minutes and I felt 100x better after.
Next time, I plan to get rid of any interruptions (put the dog in the other room, shut the shades, no tunes). Make the room as dark as possible and really just focus on my breathing.
It’s all about releasing some unwanted stress during the holiday scramble. And I believe there is no better way to let go than by eating healthy, yoga, exercising, sleep and many many warm baths. Reading is nice as well.
Eggs, cottage bacon and some greens with a cup of coffee aka morning love
Coffee has so delicious coconut creamer (best creamer I have tried thus far).
This should be the way everyday starts.
Heisenberg chili Wednesday
Similar to Cavemanketo’s recipe but without packet chili seasoning. Instead, we used all spices we had on hand. We used extra vegetable broth and onion as well. The ground pork came from the meat market we went to this weekend and it was super tasty.
We let this beautiful concoction simmer for about 12 hours all together and let the flavors really blend together.
After portioning it, we shredded Colbyjack cheese on top with sour cream.
This recipe is hard to beat.
2 lb ground pork
1 lb preservative free bacon
1 green onion
Can stewed tomatoes (or diced)
Can tomato paste
Chipotle chicken salad
I had this for lunch yesterday. Chipotle is such a lifesaver when you don’t have time to get home and make lunch or you forgot to bring lunch with you to work.
Plus the guacamole is spectacular.
Heisenberg brined ribeyes with sautéed mushrooms and roasted tomatoes with fresh herbs.
The steak begins with a metric ton of salt to release the juices. Then wash the salt off and pat dry with paper towel. Grill for only a few minutes and then broil in the oven for about 5 minutes. It’s very important to let the steaks rest after they are removed from the oven to allow the juices to settle back in the meat. It’s best to cover the steaks while they are resting to retain all flavor.
