Tic tac toe. Three meaty hits in row. Meat + no grains = flat BG like whoa.
Despite intense interactions mano-a-dead flesh, all dinners very easy. Yay. Feel like could just repeat these three forever. But tomorrow: Sockeye.
Wings from Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook. Rhode Island edition: get very inexpensive chicken wings from Persimmon Provisions. (Are they selling these as dog food? They were near the handmade dog food.) Marinate in one 4 oz. apple Juicy Juice box from hypo department of diabetes supply pantry + minced garlic + grated ginger + coconut aminos or Bragg’s + sesame oil. Roast at 400F 30+ minutes. Real recipe available here. Or in book, durrrrr.
Menu: wings + broccoli-kale-cheddar soup pretty much like this but with added kale/ax the potato + watermelon.
Menu: ribs + ratatouille + watermelon.
Ratatouille recipe: in a wide dutch oven or other heavy pot with a lid, cook a bunch of onions and garlic in olive oil. Add a bunch of sliced zucchini, eggplants, and peppers and a lot of chopped tomatoes and basil. Cook this all until it becomes totally collapsed and silky. Serve at room temperature, ideally with baguettes, goat cheese, and no diabetes.
Chicken cordon bleu like Bigfoot mom make in 1980’s but paleo (almond flour instead of bread crumbs) but faux paleo because cheese. Anyway, zero carbs. This recipe, but skipped asparagus because it’s September.
Menu: Chicken C. Bleu, green beans, watermelon.
Green beans recipe: in a giant skillet, sizzle a heap of green beans in a big glug of olive oil. Toss around until they’re glossy and maybe brown in a few spots. Throw on 1/4 c water, cover, and simmer for a few minutes. Sprinkle with flaky salt. Continue to cook, uncovered, until the water is mostly gone. We like these burning hot, cold, whatever. Green beans are probably not paleo. I’m losing interest in worrying about that.
((I’M JUST GOING TO KEEP ADDING TO THIS SO I DON’T CREATE A NEW POST))
Jack’s menu: pink grapefruits, smoked salmon, bagels, capers, cream cheese, tiny bacon quiches
Tiny bacon quiches recipe: beat 4 large eggs. Add 1 cup cottage cheese, 4 or more (chopped up) slices of Trader Joe’s precooked bacon, 1/4 t salt, 1/2 t baking powder, 1/4 c almond flour, 2T melted butter, and a handful of shredded cheddar cheese. Spoon this mixture into a buttered mini muffin pan. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown on top. Bubs set three aside for his lunchbox, and he only ever eats peanut butter sandwiches at school. It was the crowning achievement of the day; this is not sarcasm.
The total carbs are 10 from the cottage cheese and a few from the almond flour. This made 24 tiny quiches of approx 0.5g CHO each.
