DAY FORTY SIX:

turkey veggie scramble (ground turkey, garlic, onion, green pepper, yellow pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, thyme, salt & pepper) + green bean french fries (+LOTS of red hot, lol!)….pushing the “salad” limits again, but the guys ordered pizza tonight so I got to cook all for me and choose exactly what I and I alone wanted (whoohooo! no compromising!) and this is my fav quick easy healthy meal that feels unhealthy and treat-like 🙂  These green bean fries are awesome!  Greasy, salty and dripping in red hot….mmmmmm…..

DAY FORTY FIVE:

classic coleslaw + bbq honey thyme chicken thighs + greek tomatoes (chopped tomatoes tossed in evoo, red wine vinegar, dried oregano, salt & pepper)….I LOVE coleslaw!   I make my own dressing subbing out honey for sugar and almond milk for the milk and ya know what??  My family has no idea, it tastes just as good 🙂  Win!

DAY FORTY FOUR:

Grilled Teriyaki Beef & Veggies (carrots, celery, peppers, mushrooms & onions in a sauce of tamari, honey, orange juice concentrate, fresh minced ginger, garlic, white onion & chili peppers) on Zucchini Strips or “zucchini fettuccini” if you like…Pushing the limits on “salad” definition this eve I suspect…but it was worth the push, it was pretty good!

DAY FORTY THREE:

green apple, celery, white onion, toasted pecans & goat cheese on red leaf lettuce + thin slices of garlic crusted roast beef…so tasty!
The rest of the fam had this:  http://www.canadianliving.com/food/garlic_crusted_sirloin_tip_roast_with_mushroom_gravy.php which is a fantastic method to cook a roast.  I have used this recipe many, many times, using less expensive cuts of meat and it turns out perfect every single time. Recommend!  I felt like something zingy, and that was satisfied with this salad.  Dressing was a simple mix of lemon juice, mayo, red wine vinegar, evoo, salt & pepper.

DAY FORTY TWO:

roasted cauliflower, carrot & toasted cashew salad with a simple dressing of fresh lemon, mayo, evoo & chives & lots of spicy chili flakes + apricot olive thyme chicken….THIS was good!  It may not look like much, but the combo of the salad & chicken was great!  And it was super easy and quick to put together, will be recreating this one again!

DAY FORTY ONE:

Just me for dinner tonight, so something quick ‘n easy, coleslaw + dried cranberries + pumpkin seeds + green onion + Italian canned tuna (SO GOOD, packed in olive oil, salty, delicious, costs 3 X’s as much as typical tuna but so worth it)
