๐ŸŒ€ Cooked in @mychefiq 6Q Smart Cooker

1c water in inner pot + trivet
Puncture squash all around
High Pressure + Natural Release
(I like it to still be firm so I use the lesser times)
1lb = 8-10min
2lb = 15-20min
3lb = 22-25min
4lb = 28-32min

It will be ๐Ÿ”ฅ SUPER HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ when it comes out… Use a towel or mitts and cut open to cool. Once cool enough to handle, scoop out the seeds with a spoon and enjoy.

* Delicata, Honeynut, Red Kuri and Sweet Dumpling Squash can be enjoyed skin on. They take less time to cook sometimes too.

* Small / young Butternut or Kabocha Squash skin can be eaten but may be tougher.

* Large Squash especially including thick skin varieties like Acorn and Spaghetti Squash are not intended to eat the skins.

COOKING FOR SANDY

3 days a week I cook for an elderly neighbor who had a stroke last year and lost mobility on her right side. Today was one of her days.

Since this was a nice kit in an oven tray and will keep well – I am going to make this and take the whole thing to Sandy so she has leftovers.

She loved it… Ate ยฝ of it for lunch – yay!

GADGET GIRL UNBOXING & FIRST USE | Meat Grinder

Because of my autoimmune issues, a lot of meat that you buy contains added flavor or color enhancers or preservatives that trigger a reaction. Many chicken breasts are injected with plumpers that contain Carrageenan or Natural Flavors… Both problem ingredients for me.

So I decided to start grinding my own meat at home. I ordered a grinder on Amazon, bought some meat from my local Kroger and had a play!

I ground, vacuum sealed and froze:
4lb chicken breasts
3lbs turkey breast
2lb pork loin
2lb eye roast


Here are some of the things I have planned to try.
TURKEY
Greek Turkey Burgers / Kimchi Asian Style Meatballs
CHICKEN
Italian Caprese Burger / Garlic, Rosemary, Blue Cheese
PORK
Jalapeรฑo Cilantro Burger / Breakfast Sausage
BEEF
Stroganoff Burger / Super Nachos

MEAL HIGHLIGHTS
๐ŸŽ High Point Meals – Since I generally only eat two meals/day, and don’t snack, I eat a little differently than most people on this plan. Points may be higher than you are used to seeing. I do not use sugar free, fat free, artificially sweetened or highly processed foods as a general rule (FF yogurt is an exception) as they flare up my autoimmune issues.

My goal is not to have as low point meals as possible…I am developing a sustainable, lifelong way of eating and changing my relationship with food forever… I eat everything on WW ๐Ÿ’œ PURPLE… #eattherainbow

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ As part of my Autoimmune issues, my sense of taste has changed greatly… I need stronger seasonings to taste them – so like with any recipe – develop your own tastes… Omit things, substitute things, add flavors – fear not the #experimentsineating – you never know when you’ll find something incredible!

๐Ÿญ Reducing Points – If you choose to use sugar free/fat free products, your points may be significantly less in certain recipes.

I’m not telling anyone to eat any certain way… Just sharing steps on my own Wellness Adventure….
