Talk about a lovely creation to send down to the innermost depths of the stomach. It is the pork loin sandwich. You must do this.

pork loin sandwich Pork Loin Sandwich with Peppers and Onions. Oh My!

You can serve this to a house full of hungry peoples, or cook it early in the week as part of your bulk food prep for several days of noshing.

GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS

prep time: 10-15 minutes; cooking time: 15-20 minutes

serves 7-10 greedy people

  • 1 pork loin
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 large tomato
  • 2 large, colorful peppers
  • Salt, pepper and garlic to taste
  • Olive oil
  • Kaiser rolls
  • Smatherings of mayo (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare peppers and onions by cutting into slices (do not dice)
  • Slice tomatoes and set aside.
  • In a large pan, add a bit of olive oil and begin to stir fry the peppers, onions and mushrooms. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.
  • While veggies are cooking, prepare pork loin by cutting into thin slices.
  • If your pan is big enough, once veggies are partially cooked, add pork loin slices to the pan and continue cooking. If your pan is not big enough to add the loin, add a bit of olive oil to another pan and cook loin slices separately. The loin will create a juicy liquid in the pan – do not get rid of the juices as it helps to keep the loin slices nice and tender.
  • Once all is cooked thoroughly, prepare your kaiser bread by smathering on a light layer of mayo and adding tomato slices, then fill your roll with the loin and veggie mixture.
  • Now CHEW.

If a piece of kaiser bread isn’t quite right for your tummy, this beautiful ‘n tasty creation also goes well over a brown rice. Optionally, this meal is equally splendid if you go Paleo and eat it without bread or rice.

Hugs and love to my Greedy Kid #1 for making this meal while visiting us with her own shiny new family. Happy noshing!

Chicken Breast Sliders with Gravy and Bacon

chicken breast sliders Chicken Breast Sliders with Gravy and Bacon

These things are sooo dang good. I had some leftovers from a rotisserie chicken. Making chicken breast sliders seemed like the logical thing to do. And you know that bacon and succulent gravies make everything better.

GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS

  • Cooked chicken breast (or use store bought rotisserie), cut into pieces.
  • Canned gravy, or make your own using chicken broth, flour and seasoning.
  • Hormel crumbled bacon — the same kind I used in the bacon & eggs trick.
  • King’s Hawaiian Sweet dinner rolls (don’t skimp on good rolls!)

DIRECTIONS

  • Add your cooked chicken pieces to a shallow pan of gravy and heat thoroughly.
  • Meanwhile, split dinner rolls (without splitting completely in half) and heat in 350-degree oven for 3-4 minutes.
  • Place rolls on plate. Add the chicken to the rolls, then top with bacon bits.
  • Now CHEW.

My Intermittent Fasting Food Choices, Plus Weekend Indulgences

Since I couldn’t do the live stomach webcam so you see what I eat, ’tis better instead that I give you the detailed low-down on my typical weekly food choices with Intermittent Fasting. But first? Here are the highlights in a tasty, 60-second slideshow that I created using Fotor.com:

Be sure to check the link at the bottom of this post to grab my free Intermittent Fasting eBook!

MORNING: My mornings are set in stone. Since it’s the tail end of my fast, I focus on hydration to curb hunger and stay the course of fasting: 

AFTERNOON OPTIONS: Here are some food options I stick with for lunch during the week. I typically prepare in bulk for packing to work. If my meal includes eggs I make it in the microwave at work. Since lunch is my first meal of the day, this is not the time to indulge on delicious crappy food. My focus is on lean, healthy carbs and vegetables.

  • Chicken Caesar salad (no cheese or croutons) with slice of butter Ezekiel toast.
  • Cajun-baked Tilapia with sweet baked potato
  • Veggie stir fry with brown rice and 2 scrambled eggs
  • Baked chicken with black beans with brown rice
  • Homemade chicken & veggie soup
  • Stir fry peppers & onions with 2 scrambled eggs and 1 slice of buttered Ezekiel toast

Kale Bouquet

…because real flower bouquets are just too darn pricey?

kale bouquet Kale Bouquet

This thang right here is versatile. Not only does it look pretty on a table, it’ll save you from using up space in the fridge before you ultimately shove the kale into your stomach.

When you bring your kale home, cut about 1-2 inches off the bottom and place your kale bouquet in a vase with water, same as you would a bunch of flowers. As you get hungry for healthy greens, break a few pieces of kale off your bouquet to cook it up, add to raw salad or for baking up some tasty kale chips.

I’ve found the kale bouquet to stay fresh longer in the vase than it does squashed into your fridge. And it’s so darn pretty! It’ll last about 4 days before the “flowers” begin to wilt.

Happy kale eatin!

food hacks 15 Healthy Food Hacks to Lose Weight Faster

3. Cook a batch of 5-6 boiled eggs all at once. Use them during the week for salads and snack time. Baked sweet potatoes, brown rice and stir fry veggies also do well when cooked in batches for the week. Go on, make your life easier.
