My Food Diary, Just Saying

My Food Diary, for medical reason, my choice
*Disclaimer: I eat healthier than I did before. I do not claim this is the way for another person to eat. However if you find any of the methods I use or the food I choose, you are welcome to use it yourself for share. Usually, when I cook, I show one or two servings.

Veggie Meal

3 large carrots, brushed, washed, and sliced
2 zucchini squash, brushed, washed, and sliced.
1 t. olive oil
1 t. balsamic dressing
Sprinkle of ground, black pepper
Combine all of above in bowl, stir to coat with the oil and dressing
After stirring, put in a 8 or 9” cake pan, on lower rack of NuWave Oven
Bake for 12 minutes (or until done), stirring once after first 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, Cut up cabbage (about 1/4-1/2 head). Place cabbage on a rack inside rice cooker container. Place rack inside the part you usually cook the rice in. Add water to just below the rack. Cook about 15 minutes or until done, as you like.

While veggies and cabbage are cooking:
Cut up lettuce
chop or slice bell pepper
chop or slice yellow onion
Cut or slice tomato
Sprinkle with ground black pepper
Pour small amount of honey mustard dressing over top of salad

Very easy, fast, uncomplicated (considering following long, long recipes), healthy (healthier than I use to do! LOL), and delicious. Enjoy!

Ground Turkey,Rice, Veggie—Stuffed Bell Peppers, Carrot and Tiny Bit of cabbage Slaw, and Sliced Tomatoes.

I like to avoid as much fat as I can. I use drip pan with Nuwave oven to allow meat to cook but not have the fat, etc.

Ground Turkey, (I made two patties)
Black ground pepper or seasoning of your choice)
Place patties on drip pan, bake about 10 minutes, flip patties, bake for about 10 minutes more. Test for doneness. This was fresh ground turkey, not frozen as I frequently do.

While cooking Ground Turkey, cook rice in rice cooker
1 cup rice
2 cups water
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/4-1/2 onion, chopped (amount depends on your taste)
Small amount black ground pepper
Cook all of this in rice cooker together. I just put rice in, water, and put the chopped veggies on top of that and turned the cooker on. LOL

When rice is done and ground turkey patties are done, crumble patties into the rice mixture and stir.

2 bellpeppers, washed and cored
Stuff bellpeppers with cooked rice, veggie, and meat mixture. Bake on drip pan of Nuwave for about 15 minutes. When done, add to plate with sliced tomatoes, and carrot slaw. I added a small amount of prepared, low fat dressing to my serving of carrot salad.

2 large carrots
1/4 head cabbage (if desired)
Process with food processor.

I enjoyed this very much. It was actually fast, easy, and healthy. Thanks for your interest in my blog about “My Food Diary”—kept for medical reasons—my choice. :)

My daughter cooked for friends and I was invited.  I wasn’t hungry when the meal was ready so I did a bring home plate which I ate a couple of days later.  It certainly was good.  I didn’t cook this so I can’t tell you how it was cooked.  
I do know it had veggies, roast beef, and garlic bread and it was delicious!
