Enchilada pie

I started by cooking strips of chicken breast on the stove with EVOO. In a separate pan, I put minced garlic, EVOO, diced zucchini squash, tomatoes, fresh tomatillo salsa, and fresh salsa. Then I cooled and shredded chicken and added both this and stove ingredients to the glass pie dish with shredded cheese! Baked at 375 for about 20-30 and enjoyed. Healthy, fresh, and delicious!

Sweet potato and chicken salad

Begin by baking sweet potatoes, I made a big batch of 8 potatoes and baked at 400 until they were very soft. Remove the skins (not necessary but a safe bet in a larger crowd) and combine with butter salt and milk in a mixing bowl. Taste as you go to find the perfect flavor! Can be served hot or prepared the night before and cold. The chicken salad is a combination of chicken (boiled or rotisserie), cilantro, mashed avocado, walnuts, halved grapes, S&P, olive oil

Going basic again

I’ve decided to eat strictly Paleo this month. I’ve noticed a few small differences in my skin and in general don’t think I drink enough water especially with the amount of coffee I’ve had lately- yesterday was day one and I feel awesome. Since I’ve done it before am ready for the process and can plan food in advance. Yesterday I browned some brussel sprouts in EVOO and added chopped garlic just before serving, then I mashed sweet potatoes with butter and unsweetened almond milk and prepared chicken by browning each side in coconut oil then removing chicken and making a broth from the oil, garlic, salt, pepper and water. I then put the chicken right back in the pan to simmer for a bit and transferred to the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. 

And I enjoyed it for lunch today!
