I love find recipes that sound good and making them grain/sugar free!
For this recipe I used red lentil pasta and added broccoli instead of tomatoes because that’s what I like. Making food changes stick is all about what works for you. There are tons of yummy pea and bean pastas that you can sub in if they like them.
No-Shell Chicken Fajitas
Any no-sugar fajita seasoning
Chicken breast cut in strips
Sweet peppers in strips ...
(All pan seared until cooked through)
Add any toppings. I like lime juice, sour cream, salsa, shredded cheese and cucumbers. All in a lettuce wrap.
Insanely cold where I live but I had a major steak craving. So without a bbq I followed the recipe in this link and it turned out fantastic! I used unsalted butter instead of oil. Yum, butter.
Also cut that baby in half and shared with my husband.
Salad can be made of almost anything. This is just my variation of a Cobb Salad with what was in my fridge. Yum! Tag your salad friends and post anything that you love for salad go-tos.

Microwave or bake spaghetti squash....
Make spaghetti sauce:
-one pound lean ground beef or ground turkey, brown first
-one can tomato paste
-one can tomato sauce
-half of one white onion
-one pepper (orange or red are best but anything works)
-garlic to taste
-Italian seasoning to taste
-lastly I love adding some chipotle powder for spice
-top with parm cheese
A friend brought over some yellow beans, onions and celery. Added whatever was in the fridge with some vegetable seasoning and some avocado oil (light and tasteless cooking oil) for some stir fry. Yum!
Looking for a healthy oil to grill your veggies and fry your eggs. Look no further than coconut oil. Like all other cooking oils, pay attention to the smoke point, but coconut works on a very wide variety of areas.
Simple and quick breakfast idea!
Blueberries, I use frozen and throw them in the microwave
Plain Greek yogurt
Chopped nuts, any variety you fancy ...
Honey option, I usually leave it out but if you are new to ditching sugar we understand
This was what went into my lunch bag this morning first...blackberries, banana, apple, kiwi, cheese string and bag of mixed veggies. I always prep healthy snacks to be ready for my week ahead! It is a lot of fruit, so if your goal is weight related you may want to dial it back a bit.
Hidden sugar is the hardest thing when trying to cut it. You have to watch labels so carefully.
Typical view of my standing desk at work! I am constantly munching and crunching. Snacking on healthy foods is one of the best ways to avoid cravings or eating whatever junk is available. Plan ahead!
