My Food Diary August 2012
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.
Easy cooking (used canned chicken), quick cooking, and healthy. Good for a light meal on a hot day! Salad meal, I suppose you could say. LOL Chicken Salad, marinated salad, sliced tomato, and a croissant.
My Food Diary June 7, 2012
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.
May 20, 2012 My Food Diary
Baked fish fillet, seasoned potato cubes, cut asparagus pieces, sliced tomatoes, chicken hot dog, with yellow and green onions. (You add seasonings of your choice.) I did the hot dogs since I had some frozen ones that needed to come out of freezer and while I was baking something else I just wanted to “test” baking them. LOL
I placed FROZEN fish fillet and FROZEN chicken hot dogs in drip pan (place drip pan over 9 in. cake pan with small amount of water to catch drippings) that came with NuWave Oven.
Add the potato cubes and chicken hot dogs. Add seasonings and onions. Bake10 minutes in Nuwave Oven (or Rapid Air Oven), turn all items over. Continue to bake for 10 minutes more.
I sliced the tomato and placed on plate. I opened canned asparagus pieces, placed directly on plate (I did not heat this), added meat and potatoes—presto—ready to eat!
Delicious, easy, quick (from frozen, mind you), and healthy.
*Kept for personal reason but if I help someone else along the way, I’m glad. I make no claims that my way is for anyone else. I only know I’m eating healthier.

Baked Chicken With Onions, Green Beans, and Tomato Slices
Chicken can be baked in conventional oven or cooked in slow cooker. However, I often like to put chicken straight from freezer on drip pan so I can start baking, even unfrozen in the Nuwave Oven.
I’m continuing to empty freezer and found this chicken quarter. I usually now only buy chicken breasts but I wasn’t going to throw a chicken quarter away! LOL
Place chicken quarter (frozen) on drip pan that comes with the Nuwave oven. Place drip pan over a cake pan or something to catch the fat and drippings. I put a little water into the cake pan to help with moistness while cooking and to make cleaning the cake pan easier.
Bake for the frozen chicken quarter for about 15 minutes. I just sprinkle with a little black pepper and topped this with a couple of slices of onion.
After 15 minutes, flip chicken quarter over and top with two fresh slices of onion. Continue to bake for about 15 more minutes. Not bad to cook from frozen to fully cooked.
Place green beans on microwavable plate, cook for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Add baked chicken quarter to plate, and sliced tomato to complete the meal.
Very easy, quick, healthy, and filling.

Breakfast, any time of day! LOL
1/4 cup grits
3/4 cup water
Add to microwave safe container. Cook 1 1/2 minutes, stir, cook 1 minute more. Check in less time each time, stir each time. When done, add amount of cheese you desire. Stir. Serve on plate with egg and toast.
1 T. water
Place egg into egg cooker (see photo). Add water. Scramble egg, Add black pepper. Cook in microwave until done. This is usually 1 minute for mine. Add to plate with grits.
2 slices bread
Place bread in toaster. When done, remove, spread lightly with coconut oil (instead of butter), if desired. Cut into desired shape or leave whole. Add to plate with grits and egg. \
Enjoy! I usually don’t use oils, butter, and such when cooking. However, now and then I do put coconut oil on something, for variety.
Easy and quick. I think it’s healthy, too. We should have “some” of all food groups but not in excess.

Chicken, green beans, fruit salad
This week I baked 4 chicken breast in a package that I forgot to bag individually. Therefore, I have leftover chicken and leftover fruit salad. I added green beans that were not leftovers. I don’t really like frozen, cooked foods—except for a few things. So, I try to cook in small quantities so there are not a huge amount of leftovers. Freezing leftovers works fine for a lot of people. That’s great but it’s not for everyone.
I placed the chicken breast on plate, added green beans, cooked for about 1 1/2 minute to 2 minutes. Removed from microwave and added cold leftover fruit salad. Quick, easy, healthy—and no waste!
Thanks for reading my blog. It’s not fancy but kept for medical reasons.If any of the things I do can help another person that even better.

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.
