Over the last week, I have been trying out a few of the recipes from the 8WW handbook, and it has been a delightful adventure. I had family in town and made them the egg and sausage muffins. Define a muffin?…dome shaped dough baked and eaten with butter. However, that is not what I did, nor was it doughy at all. They were more like mini quiches, and quite delectable, making my kitchen smell like heaven in the a.m…combining gluten free turkey sausage (a special gluten free for my celiac best friend, 6 eggs and 6 egg whites, sliced fresh mushrooms, onions and peppers, cheese (added at the end for my lactose intolerant roommate), bake and serve. SO GOOD!! We had a smorgasbord of treats that morning.
A few days later I made the Healthy Chili…and discovered the challenges of cooking with raw kidney beans. Let’s just say my chili came out with a few crunchier bites. House smelling like heaven again though…this is nice. Chili is so easy!! you just add all the ingredients in a big pot and let it do it’s thing!!
A few of my friends are trying the vegan diet, and we have had dinner with them a few times this week…I realize that my restrictions in eating exist, but nothing compared to theirs…so I continue to adventure!
