My Food Diary, Just Saying

Today I baked fish, potato chunks, onion, and bell peppers. The fish was frozen. I placed everything in a pan, placed in Nuwave oven, set time for 10 minutes and started the oven. After the 10 minutes, I turned everything over, added a bit more onion and pepper, set timer for another 10 minutes and pressed start.

I prepared lettuce and tomato salad while the fish cooked the last 10 minutes. Placed all on plate and enjoyed eating my fast, easy, healthy meal. I’m past all of that complicated cooking.  LOL

Steak was frozen when I placed it in Rapid Air/Nuwave Oven. (Rapid Air is earlier version of Nuwave, I believe) I added potato pieces to the same container as the steak. Bake 10 minutes, turn everything over, add slices of bell pepper and onion. (see bottom photo)  Bake 10 minutes more.

When done, I added salad to the plate with small amount of salad dressing.

Sneaky Veggie Salmon

My Food Diary August 4, 2012

Do you need more nutrition or cook for someone that barely eats?  I frequently try to pack all the nutrition I can into a meal.

I had leftover cabbage and carrot salad (no dressing) that I needed to use, so I added it to a can of salmon. Added 1 egg, with small amount of flour and water. Formed into patties, coated with slight coating of flour. Placed in drip pan and baked 10 minutes in Nuwave/Rapid Air Oven, turned over, baked 10 more minutes till done. I also cooked the potato wedges and bell pepper slices in the same container along with the salmon patties. All were done at the same time.

I think this is an easy, simple, and nutritious meal. It was delicious, too.

For a change, quick breakfast of cheese toast, egg, and sliced fruit.
Whole wheat bread with grated cheese, toasted in a toaster oven. Egg done on top of stove in a very small amount of butter. Added a few slices of fresh fruit that I had on hand.

My Food Diary July 2012  Apricot/Apple Cobbler with Topping
I baked this cobbler in toaster oven. Even though the toaster oven heats up the kitchen less than a regular oven—it still takes too long to do this very often during hot weather. Delicious, though! LOL

Stuffed Bell Pepper with Applesauce and Whole Wheat Crackers

1 cup raw rice, add two cups liquid, place in rice cooker, turn on rice cooker. Takes about 20 minutes to cook.  My liquid was 1/4 apple juice, 1/4 cup salsa, and 1 1/2 cups water.

Bake bell peppers in Nuwave Oven, 1 inch rack, for about 10 minutes, turn pan and continue to bake for 5 minutes or until done

Saute mushrooms in very small amount of olive oil (very, very small amount) add chopped onions and chopped celery.  Saute all while the peppers and rice are cooking.  I did this on stovetop burner. I added a sprinkle of black pepper and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning. I did not add salt to anything.

When rice is done, add it to the skillet with the mushrooms, onion, and celery. Stuff bell pepper with this mixture and add to a plate.  Place about 1/2 cup applesauce next to the stuffed pepper and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Add about 5 whole wheat crackers.  Your meal is done!  Should be healthy, filling, and salt free. Enjoy!

These dishes could be done with conventional oven, stove top, microwave, as well as the appliances I like to work with, which I named.

Variation of Pizza in Nuwave Oven
I bought a cheaper brand, pre-made pizza.
Placed face down on aluminum foil in the round silicon pan.
Bake for about 15 minutes on 4 inch rack.
Turn Pizza over (I turned onto a plate and slid back into the silicon pan.
I added sliced tomatoes, mushrooms, and grated cheese—on top of the pre-made topping on the pizza.
Bake for about 10 additional minutes.
I use the chart that came with the Nuwave to cook this, I just add some ingredients during the last half of the cooking time and keep an eye on it as it browns and the cheese melts.
This could be done in a conventional oven or toaster oven.  I simply like using the Nuwave.
Delicious! Fast!
