๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ COOKING FOR SANDY | ๐Ÿฅช BACON SWISS SANDWICH | ๐Ÿ• CUBANO PIZZA

๐ŸŒž Good morning ๐ŸŒž gentle friends!
Let’s get this day started…

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ COOKING FOR FRIENDS DAY
I am so excited to be able to share my love of food and cooking. A very dear friend is going through a rough time medically, which lordy knows I understand, so I offered to prep some meals for them so they didn’t have to even think about it. I was going to do a ton of freezer meals but they decided just one meal a week was all they wanted right now.

I gave them a bunch of recipe links and they gave me a list of their top 10 choices to start with. Today I am making this one from @thrivinghome

https://thrivinghomeblog.com/baked-beef-ravioli-recipe-an-easy-fake-out-lasagna

I would have never thought to use ravioli as a replacement!

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ COOKING FOR SANDY DAY
3 days a week, I cook meals for a neighbor who had a stroke last year and has limited mobility. We often share a meal kit or something similar and spend some time together since neither of us go out too much ๐Ÿ˜ Today is one of her days. I’m enjoying having someone to cook for again. I had taken her a multi day salad on Tuesday she still was working so I just made the pizza. Neither of us had tried it before and we both really liked it!

Full details are in today’s video

Nutritional amounts below are for my part. They provided full nutritional information on their website and because I needed to increase my healthy fats and calories to meet my targets today – I added ยฝtbsp Grapeseed Oil to the carrots and chicken when cooking.

Meat in a can is always a bit questionable but this Clover Valley (Dollar General) Roast Beef is actually really tasty. The meat pieces are actual pieces – not ground up, indistinguishable bits and the gravy is good. Like any processed food like that, the sodium is high, but on a day where I am just hurting too much to do much more – this works for me.

Then I prepped these 3 dressings…

Lemon Dijon Hummus Dressing

(I forgot the Dijon)

Carrot Ginger Miso Dressing
https://frommybowl.com/carrot-ginger-dressing/#tasty-recipes-3875

Lemon Ponzu Dressing
https://www.food.com/amp/recipe/homemade-ponzu-sauce-487741

I found with the Carrot Ginger dressing, for me personally, I wanted it thinner so I added additional water and some lemon juice until I got the consistency I wanted…

๐Ÿฅ— DINNER
Change of plans – a storm has come through and got me hurting. I will do the chicken tomorrow. For tonight all I could manage was a super quick, no frills meal.

It’s Skinny Pasta – Konjac Pasta

I really like this as far as pasta substitutes go. It is not gummy or weird smelling, you don’t need to rinse it heavily and it has a much firmer texture, almost like a Ramen Noodle as opposed to a super delicate, fall apart noodle.

The closest I can relate it to is the Palmini Heart of Palm noodles I like, but less expensive. They also do one as a rice replacement… I eat standard rice but if you wanted something other than cauliflower rice, because, ewwwww… This could work well for that. I am going to look for it in the Asian supermarket as well, as several of the Korean food bloggers I follow on YouTube use Konjac Rice regularly so maybe I can find a good price on it there.

MEAL HIGHLIGHTS
๐ŸŽ High Point Meals
– Since I generally only eat two meals/day, and rarely snack on anything but fruit, 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. I don’t drink coffee or alcohol so no points needed for that.

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….
