๐Ÿฅš PERFECT SOFT BOILED EGGS
In small saucepan, bring enough water to completely cover the eggs to a rolling boil. Reduce temperature to med and when the water is at a low simmer, gently add eggs. Avoid dropping them in the pot as they may crack.

Cook chicken eggs for 5 min (or duck eggs for 6 min) uncovered. I like to stir them every few minutes to prevent the yolk cooking more on one side.

If you prefer hard boiled (but not chalky super done yolks), increase time to 9min for chicken eggs and 11min for duck eggs.

Once cooked, drain out the boiling water and fill the pot with cold water. I personally don’t do an ice bath because I don’t want my eggs cold to eat.

Crack the eggs gently all the way around and put in the pot of cold water to allow water to get under the membrane. Leave eggs for 3-5 min, peel gently under running water and enjoy.

I cooked the chicken on the stove when I should have trusted my instincts and cooked it in the air fryer. I wasn’t thinking about the fact that the yogurt would break while the chicken was cooking and so I ended up with a broken sauce. Still edible but not as nice…

So it turns out:
Up to ยพtsp is 0 (too fiddly to mess with unless you really really just want a smidge)
Then up to 2ยฝ tsp is 1
Then up to 1โ…“ tbsp is 2

I had the ยพtsp serving today with my peas to see if I wanted to use that amount and no, I’d rather just use my points for it ๐Ÿ˜Š but now I know…

I tried my potato in the air fryer but got distracted and forgot to oil and salt it… ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

๐ŸŒฟ EXPANDED BASIL PESTO
Make your Pesto go much farther for no extra points!
I usually use @simpletruthorganic Basil Pesto or @priano from Aldi when I can get out there, but any will work.

In a small food processor or Magic Bullet/Nutribullet:
โ–ช๏ธ2tbsp Pesto of your choice
โ–ช๏ธA generous handful of any dark green – spinach, kale, chard – just not lettuces.
โ–ช๏ธ1x Garlic Clove
โ–ช๏ธJuice of 1/2 Lemon (if not using additional liquid like from the Artichokes)
โ–ช๏ธFresh Basil (*optional)
โ–ช๏ธArtichoke Hearts (*optional) – this adds a thicker richer texture. I used 4x Artichoke quarters today and about 2tbsp of the liquid.
โ–ช๏ธ@wincrestbulkfoods Nutritional Yeast (*optional)

Pulse until desired texture, adding more liquid (water, lemon juice, brine from the Artichokes) if you want.

My 2tbsps Pesto became 1/2 cup. So good!

INSTANT POT ARTICHOKE
๐ŸŒ€ Cooked in @mychefiq 6Q Smart Cooker
Trim artichoke stem (and petal tips if needed). Cut off the top inch or so of the artichoke and rinse to remove any dirt between the petals. Place Artichoke on trivet or in steamer basket face up, squeeze juice of 1 lemon into the crevices (*optional), add lemon halves to pot with 1 cup water.

๐Ÿ…พ๏ธ These items are not True Zero on Core (as in indefinite amounts) but they are 0 by nutritional value at the serving sizes I used. All details are in the recipe cards on the blog.

๐Ÿงˆ PERSONAL PROGRAM TWEAK DECISION
I am not a fan of oil in cooking – both from a taste and texture perspective so I very rarely use my 2tsp/day.

1tbsp of this particular butter (not regular butter) is less calories, less total and saturated fat and the same 0 fiber as 2tsp of oil. They are both 9g servings.

So for me, and this is just a personal decision, I am going to allow 1tbsp/day in place of the 2tsp/oil. Any after that counts as per normal, just like the oil. But if you see this butter tracked as 0 for 1tbsp, that is why.

๐Ÿฑ DINNER ๐Ÿฑ
๐ŸŒฎ TACO BELL STEAK POWER BOWL

Boy, what an evening! I made Sandy lunch. Got ready to take it to her and was putting some for me in a little container for dinner.

I ate probably three or four tablespoons out of the crock pot as I was doing it. I was starting to leave to go to her and all of a sudden I had shooting pain in my back and my chest was super tight like when my BP gets too high.

I messaged her that I needed a few more minutes and I came and laid down but had a pretty nasty reaction. I was laying here trying to think of what could have possibly caused it and the only thing that I bought different was Dollar General was out of the cream of mushroom soup that I had bought the last time so I bought the Clover Valley one. Obviously didn’t read the label well enough and had a big tight chest reaction.

I didn’t want her to not eat because of my stupidity so I went down to her and then eventually came home and lay down for a couple of hours. It eased off a little bit and I decided because the Kroger ad changes tomorrow and some of the stuff I was out of goes back to normal price, I was going to go ahead and go into town.

I walked around Kroger like a super Nana for over an hour and by the time I was finished, it was 9:30. I knew I wasn’t going to have any of that pork and I hadn’t taken anything else out so I decided to get a modified Power Bowl from Taco Bell so I could sit, rest and eat something before driving home. Whew!

What I have never understood is why I react to some things so strongly like 3tbsp of condensed soup mix but then there are places like Taco Bell, Wendy’s, Tampico – my local Mexican place, Shoguns – my local Sushi place, Yummy Japan – my local Hibachi and Peking House – my local Chinese that I know have ingredients with food additives but I don’t generally have a problem with – certainly not like that.

On the other hand, McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King, Sonic, Bojangles = definitely problems… I have discovered over the years since this started where I can go and what I can get and generally be okay…

But it is still unexplainable why I am okay with some places and others cause this kind of reaction…

I am not a fan of oil in cooking – both from a taste and texture perspective so I very rarely use my 2tsp/day.

1tbsp of this particular butter (not regular butter) is less calories, less total and saturated fat and the same 0 fiber as 2tsp of oil. They are both 9g servings.

So for me, and this is just a personal decision, I am going to allow 1tbsp/day in place of the 2tsp/oil. Any after that counts as per normal, just like the oil. But if you see this butter tracked as 0 for 1tbsp, that is why.

These 3 have exactly the same nutritional value

๐ŸŽ CORE NOTES
๐Ÿ”น Peppers can be raw, grilled or air fryer/oven baked if you want them softer like a Fajita pepper. I wanted the crunch so I left them raw.
๐Ÿ”น Good Thins Corn Chips are up to 25 for 1WP / up to 43 for 2WP so you can add some chip flavor or just use those as mini chips (they are the size of Cheeze-its).
๐Ÿ”น Cook the ground meat, beans, mushrooms and half of the onion (and some extra garlic if you want) in a skillet. I used pork here but up to 93% lean beef or ground chicken/turkey would work as well and still be 0๏ธโƒฃ.
๐Ÿ”น If you can find, and want to use, fat free cheese – adding that would still be 0๏ธโƒฃ on CORE. Otherwise many of the Fritos cheese dips or jarred Quesos are actually really low in points – usually 1WP for 2tbsp.
๐Ÿ”น Taco Sauce and Fat Free Salsa are CORE compliant condiments. ๐ŸŒฎ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿ…
๐Ÿ”น Top with your favorite fresh vegetables – spinach or lettuce, tomatoes, onion, jalapeรฑos, olives, avocado, corn…
๐Ÿ”น Add some salsa and FF sour cream, or in my case 0% Greek Yogurt – you could also use an avocado ranch dressing like Bolthouse Farms or Litehouse (would need to point if applicable) or make a lime crema.
๐Ÿ”น To make the White Cheddar Powder into a queso – mix 2tbsp powder + 1ยฝtbsp water + 1tbsp yogurt. Mix well, microwave for 15sec and let stand while you get the rest ready – soooo good and only 1WP!

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.

For the month of July, she has a friend staying and I am cooking for them both. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Today she wanted a Thai Stle Peanut Crusted Salmon kit we got from Home Chef. They really enjoyed it!

๐Ÿฑ DINNER ๐Ÿฑ
I had lunch, worked with my lawn guys, cooked for Sandy and spent some time with her and then needed to go to Kroger before their weekly ad changed for a few things. They were looking pretty rough – they are still understaffed and many of the things I went to get were not there. I’ll have to make another trip in next week.

While I was in town, I noticed our local Chinese Buffet I used to go to for seafood nights had finally been able to reopen. No seafood, but it was nice to see them.

I forgot how salty everything was…. Whew! I ended up leaving the beef, part of the beans and a piece of broccoli but the girls are fast and cleared my plate before I could take a picture… ๐Ÿคฃ

RED LENTIL TORTILLAS

https://www.powerhungry.com/2018/05/1-ingredient-red-lentil-tortillas-grain-free-vegan/

๐ŸŒฏ Makes 6 Burrito (large) or 8 Taco (small) size tortillas

CORE NOTES:
๐Ÿ”น Soak lentils for at least 6hrs or up to overnight. Blend, preferably in a blender but a food processor will work, including the soaking liquid, until smooth. Batter will be between a crepe and pancake batter consistency.

๐Ÿ”น Pour a thin layer into a lightly oiled pan over medium heat. Spread to an even thin layer. Cook, flip, repeat. Soft, chewy, and very pliable when done.

๐Ÿ”น You can then air fry or bake these, cut into chips. 375ยฐ for 10min. Top with cinnamon sugar (and honey afterwards) to make sopaipillas or season for a savory chip – sea salt and vinegar, ranch, chili and lime… Whatever you like… Popcorn Seasoning works really well for this…

Oven times and temperatures will vary so watch them carefully.

๐Ÿฅฆ Almost all of my vegetables are either steamed in my @goodcooks Microwave Steamer or water sautรฉed and then seasoned afterwards. This keeps them fresher looking and since I am not a fan of soggy vegetables I can control the level of crunch which I appreciate. Plus of course it is less points than cooking in oil or butter. If I want those for flavor, I add it at the end.

๐Ÿฅš PERFECT SOFT BOILED EGGS ๐Ÿฅš
In small saucepan, bring enough water to completely cover the eggs to a rolling boil. Reduce temperature to med and when the water is at a low simmer, gently add eggs. Avoid dropping them in the pot as they may crack.

Cook chicken eggs for 6 min (or duck eggs for 7 min) uncovered. I like to stir them every few minutes to prevent the yolk cooking more on one side.

Once cooked, drain out the boiling water and fill the pot with cold water. I personally don’t do an ice bath because I don’t want my eggs cold to eat.

Crack the eggs gently all the way around and put in the pot of cold water to allow water to get under the membrane. Leave eggs for 5 min, peel gently under running water and enjoy.
