Today has been such a busy, crazy day! We accomplished a lot and, as always, there will be blog posts but for now, I will just show you what we ate today. As I’ve said before, I’m not even thinking that anyone cares what we had to eat at our house but I want to share with you how easy and delicious healthy meals can be.
I love my cast iron griddle and use it all the time! You can see breakfast cooking. Speck’s eggs are in the little skillet on the left.
Vince and I had poached eggs, English muffins (which were not gluten free because I haven’t seen those again), and bacon. I know . . poached eggs are supposed to be on top of the bread but since I don’t eat the whites, it takes a little bit of “surgery” to get my yolks separated from those yucky whites.
For lunch, we had been out working and I had chicken salad in the fridge so this was our lunch. It was kinda like “open the fridge and grab anything you see!”.
Chicken salad in an avocado half, fresh pineapple, mozzarella sticks, olives, strawberries and cherry tomatoes. It was so hot (over 80 degrees) outside and a cold meal was great for lunch.
All day I meant to stop and take pork chops out of the freezer and never did so when it got time to fix dinner, I was thinking . . I wonder what Vince would think about chicken salad for dinner, and he probably would not have minded but I knew I could fix shrimp tacos in a flash.
We also had kale chips . . it was a fairly light meal; done and cleaned up quickly!
I’m betting we will be in bed early tonight!
Judy, I know you have mentioned kale chips before but I can’t remember if you’ve ever said if you make them or buy them. My chiro said I need to eat lots of kale so I thought the chips might be a good way to go. Would you enlighten me on your source, please?

I was the opposite of you as a kid. My cousin and I used to trade egg parts. She got the yolks and I got the whites!
Judy, I want to thank you for the diet info you’ve shared over the last couple of months. It has certainly helped me, though I can’t tolerate so much protein. I’ve taken a liking to roasted veggies, gone almost gluten free, and eliminated sugar. Though I’m not a celiac, my doc suggested that gluten free would make arthritic joints feel better. That helped somewhat, but sugar-free really did the trick. I can’t believe how much better I feel, and how easily the weight is dropping. So, thanks again for your inspiration!
If your looking for gluten free..One Good Thing by Jillee blog has a gluten free bread in a cup that cooks in 87 sec in the microwave that is delicious. Toast it..and you have an English muffin. I’m going to test it and bake it in the oven once..but I make it several times a week for my husband and myself and I highly recommend it. Thumbs up from the hub!
I’m w you girl! I take the yolks out b4 I cook them though.
