I watched a football game tonight so I was/am pretty wound up later than usual. Other than toss and turn, I decided to freshen up my pillows. I have Fibromyalgia and find I need several pillows, ranging in small to King size. I have ALL kinds of pillows on hand, depending on comfort level I need for any given night.
Nice, FRESH pillows! QUICK way suck out any stale air and replace with fresh! LOL
Anyway, I got a rather large plastic bag. I inserted pillow, with pillowcase still on it, into the plastic bag. I doubled the pillow but you don’t have to double the pillow over. I do it this way because it prevents the plastic bag from sucking up into the vac tube and blocking it.
Anyway, I inserted the pillow, inserted vac tube, gathered up the opening to close up the opening, turned on the vac. Right away the pillow deflates into a much smaller shape, with all air sucked out. I admit it is rather fun to watch it do this and KNOW all the stale air is now out of it. Turn off vac, release top, remove tubing, and watch the pillow instantly refill with nice, clean air! So easy!
Maybe you knew this little trick but maybe you didn’t. Try it and see what you think! *Yes, I know we can wash pillows. This is a little “between washes” way to freshen up!
Lunch today. Slow cooker spaghetti, baked chicken slices, spinach, and fresh strawberries. Easy, healthy, and fast.
*I realize my choices of food or method of cooking may not be suitable for everyone. I keep this food diary for my own medical reasons, my choice and for encouragement to other people that may not feel like long, drawn out cooking but need to eat. :)
Oh, wow! How quickly things change! Didn’t post to Twitter as it usually does. I wonder why???? :( Everything is always changing and usually not for the best, IN MY OPINION!

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.

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.

I baked the chicken and some chicken hot dogs (have hot dogs tomorrow), in Nuwave Oven. Chicken breast was frozen when I started baking. I baked 10 minutes, turned over, baked another 10 minutes.
While meat baked, I tore lettuce leaves and prepared washed veggies (you may slice or chunk, your preference). After chicken was baked, I cut into pieces and added to the bowl. Toss and it’s done! Easy, quick, light for this hot weather, and delicious.
Photo of veggies: Yummy veggies I got last week. Enjoyed, enjoyed, enjoyed! LOL Thanks for sharing with me! Now, (lol) when are the tomatoes ready (or anything else) ?????? Just had to say it—I’m bad, huh? LOL
*I eat healthier than before. Added NO oil or salt. Meat can be prepared in various ways but I just prefer NuWave. My food choices or method of preparation may not be suitable for everyone.
(My third time to try to get this posted! It’s saved but it’s not—have to reload photos, do tags, etc. :()

I used torn lettuce leaves, chopped tomato, bellpepper, onion, radish, cucumber, and low fat Ranch dressing.
I also added photo of my “snack” last night. LOL Frozen Chocolate Yogurt and chopped Fresh Strawberries.
Thanks for reading my blog. I post things I prepare and eat for my own use. However, if you find something you would like to try, you are welcome to!
*I eat healthier than I did but do not imply my diet is for everyone nor my way of preparing it.

I think the photos, with directions, explains the way to do this meal. I did add black ground pepper, Italian seasoning, and lemon juice to the fish (fish was frozen) before baking. Fish and veggies all baked same amount of time in the Nuwave Oven. I baked this 20 minutes total and it was delicious.
*I do not imply my method is the only way to cook. I simply prefer Nuwave Oven to bake things instead of conventional oven. I eat healthier than I did but do not imply this meal is best for everyone.

I’ve been busy with things and just simply had to have a little “different” coffee this morning. It was nice for a change. I added a bit of powdered milk and powdered chocolate mix to the coffee and stirred it. I found serving this special (to me) coffee in a cup and saucer made it even more enjoyable! LOL
Yesterday, I simply did a baked potato in the microwave, sliced up a tomato, opened a can of fruit cocktail (drained it), added 1/2 banana and some salad dressing. I put a small amount of butter on the potato and added chopped green onions. Light meal but quick, easy, and actually was filling.
*I make no claims that the way I eat is what another person should eat. I eat healthier than before I started this blog and it works for me. Also, the appliances I use to cook, work better for me. Everything I do can be done in another way.

I cooked grits in microwave according to directions on package. After cooked, I added cheese and some butter. I also added black ground pepper.
I cooked one egg in the microwave with some chopped purple onion, chopped green onion, and some chopped up tomato. I also added black ground pepper and Italian Seasoning. I use the little egg cooker I’ve talked about in previous blogs. I love using that.
I toasted two pieces of toast in the toaster, added butter when done.
Since I did the red, white, and blue theme—I used red strawberry jam and cut up two strawberries to add to the plate.
*I make no claims that what I eat is best for everyone. I am eating healthier than I did before but today was an exception. LOL I use various appliances that I personally like to use and in no way infer you have to cook it as I do.
