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.

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.

My something new

My something new

My husband and I did some grocery shopping yesterday and walked through the natural/organic section of the grocery store and I stopped in front of the peanut butter and jelly/preserve section. I had originally intended to get some organic, natural, and probably salt-free peanut butter. I had a taste for peanut butter but did not want to have all the salt and sugar you find in the national brands. While standing in front of the natural/organic peanut butter my eyes looked over and noticed the almond butter. I’ve seen almond butter everytime I shop for peanut butter and just never really stopped to pay much attention.

I had a great idea for a salad last week.  We were out of tomatoes and I did not want to eat carrots for some reason.  I needed to make a salad and had a refrigerator full of greens.  I decided to make an all green salad and it was great.  I should have taken a picture.

Salad Ingredients

Green leaf lettuce

Kale

cucumbers

celery

spinach

avocado

It was very hearty.  I cut the kale up very fine to make it easier to eat.  I really like when I can take whatever I have in the kitchen and make a meal out of it.

Today is the last day of the 21-day cleanse.  I have not updated the blog in 9 days, though it does not seem that long.  I did not have any new observations and my days were pretty much the same.  I did not talk about the weight loss I experienced or the recipes that I tried so what I will do this coming week is do recap posts of the experience and what I’m planning moving forward. 

Umm Ebraheem

Yunus 10:18

And they worship besides Allâh things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allâh." Say: "Do you inform Allâh of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!
