WELLNESS CHECK
Not good –  but I knew that… I have been feeling crummy for a long time and here is the black and white of it.   The meds only work for so long before we have to increase them… I was down to the 150s / high 90s but it’s right back where it was.

Eating more meals today was…. Interesting… 😂

At the beginning of the day I thought there is no way I’m going to be able to eat all this today and I felt like I was just kind of constantly making something and then cleaning it up and then making something and then cleaning it up… 😂…

Now I don’t have a whole lot going on so it was fine but I was surprised that by about my 8.00 meal – I was actually a little hungry, which for me is unusual.   Feed the metabolism…

I made it through Day 1 with everything that I had pre tracked and hit all of my targets which is fantastic.   I did take a look at what my heart rate was after eating so I had a baseline to go from and it was pretty much what I thought it was – in the low 130s.   Now keep in mind this is just sitting at the table doing nothing.  

I had a lot of very simple things – the only thing that I even used to cook today was the air fryer twice and then the microwave for the shrimp and zucchini.   Everything else was just as is…. Easy peasy…

So how do I feel at the end of Day 1?

Medical stuff aside –  I think this is certainly doable with some planning.   I am looking forward to getting my BP and HR down so I can see what effect this has when I’m not in a bad reaction state. The only thing I am going to change is I am going to try 5 instead of 6 meals tomorrow… It was a bit of a hard press today.

I also need to change my volume eating habit (eat more lower calorie foods) – so I am going to balance smaller volume, higher calorie items so I’m not eating so much to fill my metrics. Definite change…

🐠 TIK TOK RICE PAPER SALMON & SALAD | 🥘 ENGLISH BANGERS & MASH

DAILY MEAL HIGHLIGHTS
🌞 Good morning 🌞 gentle friends!
Let’s get this day started…

🐠 AIR FRYER SALMON BITES & SALAD
I saw an Instagram version of the Tik Tok Firecracker Salmon and combined a few basic air fryer recipes together for a super simple version.

Here are 2 great recipes for the Firecracker Salmon (or you could do any other fish, shrimp, chicken – whatever you like)

https://www.jocooks.com/recipes/firecracker-salmon
Here is the Tik Tok Rice Paper version:
http://theregularfolks.com/viral-tiktok-recipes-firecracker-salmon-in-rice-paper
I didn’t want that flavor so I used the seasonings from this one instead:
https://thestayathomechef.com/air-fryer-salmon

▪️ Salmon
▪️ Lemon Juice
▪️ Low Sodium Soy Sauce
▪️ Grapeseed Oil
▪️ Minced Garlic
▪️ Paprika
▪️ Salt, Pepper & Garlic Blend
▪️ Rice Paper Wrappers
▪️ Avocado Oil

♨️ COOKED IN
@ninjakitchen Foodi Smart XL Air Fryer Oven
Preheated – Middle Rack
400° for 15min

They weren’t as crispy as I’d like, probably because I have an air fryer oven which has a larger space and doesn’t concentrate the heat in the same way – so I just turned on BROIL for an extra 4 minutes. Yum! 👅

🥚 EGGY TOAST & SAUSAGE
I was recommended to try a new (to me) egg poaching pan instead of doing soft boiled eggs. My friend Kim swears it would be perfect – runny yolks, whites completely done (which makes them easy for me to separate since I can’t eat the whites for histamine reasons)

I have tried lots of poaching techniques over the years, both microwave and stovetop and just never got a result I preferred over soft boiling.

Well she was right 😂 PERFECT first time (see daily video)

🍳 BREAKFAST BISCUIT |🍕 SUPREME PIZZA & 🥗 SUPERFOOD SALAD

🍳 BREAKFAST BISCUIT
▪️ Self Rising Flour
▪️ Greek Yogurt (@dannon)
▪️ Italian Seasoning
▪️ Duck Egg Yolk (local farm)
▪️ Havarti Cheese
▪️ Lettuce
▪️ Tomato
▪️ Dijon Mustard
▪️ Navel Orange

🍞 ITALIAN QUICK DOUGH DROP BISCUIT
🔹 ⅓c Self Rising Flour (lightly packed)
To make all purpose flour into self rising – add 1½tsp baking powder + ¼tsp salt per 1c flour…
🔹⅓c 0% Greek Yogurt

OPTIONAL EXTRAS*
🔹½tbsp Italian Seasoning
🔹1tbsp Nutritional Yeast
*optional – it does not effect the baking – it is not that kind of yeast – I use it because I am deficient in vitamin B12 among other things

If you add these, you will have to add a little extra yogurt, milk or water…

Season as YOU like 😁…

NO STICKY HANDS PREPARATION
Combine all ingredients in a bowl with a fork or small spatula. Lightly spray your baking sheet or lay down some parchment paper and turn your dough out onto the tray. Using the fork/spatula, shape the dough to the thickness and diameter you want. Top with an egg wash and additional seasoning if you’d like. Bake and enjoy!

♨️ Cooked in
@hauswirtusa 42Q Air Fryer Countertop Oven
Preheated – Middle Rack
400° for 20min

🥣 INSTANT POT CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP
Inspired by
https://damndelicious.net/2018/02/15/instant-pot-chicken-noodle-soup

Feeling a little rough around the edges so this quick, easy soup was just the right fix…

▪️Chicken Breast (canned)
▪️Carrot
▪️Celery
▪️Garlic
▪️Italian Seasoning
▪️Homemade Lemon & Herb Poultry Bone Broth
▪️Homemade Chicken Bouillon
▪️Whole Wheat Egg Noodles
▪️Lemon Juice

I cooked for 3min under Pressure and Pulse Release which was perfect – but I forgot not to put the pasta in if I was going to freeze… Ooops!

▪️🚫 Orange Milk Chocolate (Ovation) 🚫

A friend stopped by to check on me and brought this chocolate. She said she checked and it specifically said “All Natural – no artificial flavors or colors” – so we shared part of it. About 10min later, my feet and hands were burning and my throat was scratchy. Classic reaction… Looked them up online…

“Natural Flavors” twice on the label… Which are anything but natural and I react to… She was so disappointed! I should have checked… Not her fault… Bless her heart 💞 she tried!

🏵️ SMART COOKER (INSTANT POT) WHOLE SQUASH
🌀 Cooked in

1c water in inner pot + trivet
Puncture squash all around

1lb = 10-15min
2lb = 15-20min
3lb = 22-25min

It will be 🔥 SUPER HOT 🔥 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.

* 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.

I had something completely different planned but the weather changed bringing a low pressure storm through and that was a bit difficult. Not feeling like creative or long cooking, so a queso chili potato was easy.
