Recently my husband has been getting gifts of eggs from a coworker who has chickens and ducks on her land. She does not farm, just keeps the birds for personal consumption. My husband and I both enjoy farm fresh eggs and are happy to take the extra off her hands. My husband also really enjoys duck eggs so we get those as well because her family does not eat them.
I used to love frozen chicken pot pies. The little ones in the tin cups that you cook in the oven for 45 minutes. They are no good for you and full of calories, which I did not realize when I was eating them because I did not care about calories. I ate them a lot as a child and during my college years, but really have not had chicken pot pie in years.
Recently I came upon a recipe for a “lighter” chicken pot pie. The recipe looked so easy I figured I would give it a try and see what happened. I have been having a lot of success lately with new recipes and really felt like I was on a roll.
From start to finish I can have delicious chicken pot pie in about an hour and with the use of my food processor the prep work for the recipe is super easy. I’m going to post recipe below, but I changed a few things to fit what my husband and I like.
If things are going horribly wrong in your pan on the stove, screaming nooooo! does not help.
I have been making an effort to juice more regularly again. The problem I ran in to was making my juices way to complicated. I thought I need to have a specific recipe and lots of greens and herbs in order for it to be a “good” juice. I was watching a video of my favorite raw food youtuber and Dan the Lifer regenerator was like, keep it simple and juice apples, cucumbers, and carrots. It hit me that I often have a couple of things in my refrigerator. So the other day I had a great juice of cucumber, carrot, ginger, and apples. Another juice I made was apples, oranges, ginger, and carrots.
Keep it simple and get your juice on!
My husband recently came across a new youtube channel that I thought I’d share. It is a news program for Muslims by Muslims. It is presented by an English-speaking brother out of Saudi Arabia and the program is broadcast in English with Arabic subtitles. The Channel is named Atheer Channel and the News program is titled, “The Strangers.”
I’m always trying to improve my diet and eating habits in an effort to get to a healthy weight and maintain it. I have had my ups and downs and I’ll try most things. While I enjoy eating a raw diet it does not necessarily work for my husband fulltime and I found that I liked cooked foods too much to give them up completely forever. So, I’ve switched to high raw and now a focus on “clean eating.”
I’ve been checking out some youtube channels focused on clean eating and found some great recipes. I tried a healthy version of taco salad last week and it was a big hit with my husband. I never would have thought on my own to add black olives to my taco salad, but after trying it I don’t think I’ll do without it. It gives such a nice unexpected flavor.
