As you know, I have been in a cooking slump. Veggies and fruit just don't taste as fresh in the winter....or maybe I just need to get more creative.
Sure, I've made chili, cornbread...but that's not exciting, right?
So, here are some pics of our comfort food. Most of it is gluten free and all organic...but I have been known to drink too many lattes and one or two blizzards...okay six.
When your kiddo just has to have chicken nuggets, these Applegate, organic ones are the best choice. Unless you are motivated and make them with almond flour out of organic chicken. But remember I am not motivated.
These Yukon fries with sea salt are also easy and oh so good. I typically make my fries fresh and add sea salt but this is quick and easy.
I love my almond butter but havent been eating enough of it and this organic squash soup has been in my pantry for about a month. One day soon, one day soon.
When the kiddos or you want spaghetti, these gluten free spiral noodles are great with organic fire roasted tomato sauce.
And just to make sure the kiddo gets fruit, I buy it all, rinse it right away and put it in a bowl. We are all more likely to eat it that way.
And who doesn't love macaroni. Annie's organic macaroni makes some great gluten free noodles the kiddos love...and so does mama...with extra cheese of course
We have also been eating a lot of Van's gluten free waffles and organic eggs for warm breakfast on cold days. With maple syrup of course.
And his new obsession is these organic, cookies made from some healthy weird name I can't remember. Also gluten free.
And last but not least, cliff bars are great on the go before a run, in a rush, or for your kiddos.
What are your favorite meals right now? This girl needs inspiration....
ps not sure why these are upside down and I've tried to fix it too many times....you will just have to turn your head sideways...you are probably more motivated anyway...just don't let your coworkers catch you.like I said not motivated
Yes, I know. I am obsessed with my chicken creations. But, this time I made it a little different. If you remember before, you take organic chicken strips, season with sea salt and spices. Wrap nitrate free bacon around them and cook on 400 for about an hour. I check mine after 30 minutes just in case. They are so delicious and healthy. They are great to pack for lunches as well.
This time, I added some Southern fare and cooked them atop baked beans with onion, garlic, bacon, brown sugar and a little bit of ketchup and mustard. I also roll them in flax seeds. Good 'ol Mississippi cookin.' I also cooked organic red potatoes with parmesan on top and cut them into fries. Seasoned with sea salt. Crispy and oh so good.
I also got on an omelet kick. I used brown eggs and mixed them with organic sausage, peppers, spices, bacon and cooked in on the stove on low. Turned out perfect. Eating protein in the morning repairs your muscles and gets you full longer. I didnt eat for about six hours after eating this omelet.
My apologies on the picture quality. Blackberry flash wasn't working. Just trust me-it was to die for!
