Day 15: Halfway Through, I’m Glowing

13 Nov

My skin is looking incredible the last few days. Gotten a lot of compliments that I’m glowing. I know I’m not pregnant, so cleaning up the diet with real, unprocessed foods must be the contributing factor.

Some foods from the last several days.

Baked chicken breast and creamed spinach. This was the first time cooking chicken breast this way. I brined it for 3 hours, coated it with seasoning, and then baked it. So moist. The chicken recipe was from my Well Fed cookbook and the recipe can also be found here. I highly recommend it! The creamed spinach was based on a recipe I saw in the Paleo Comfort Foods cookbook. Super easy and really tasty (I love spinach).

I made chili this weekend in the crockpot, based on this recipe by Paleo Newbie. The ground beef is from the eighth of a cow I bought. Grass-fed and organic and delicious. Topped it with half an avocado and had an apple on the side.

I also bought some ling cod from a friend after a fishing trip he took. Baked ling cod and steamed green beans with extra virgin olive oil and almonds.

I was on a mission this past weekend to bake with some pumpkin puree. I made these Bacon/Chive/Apple/Pumpkin Coconut Flour Biscuits courtesy of The Urban Poser. I think this is the first recipe I’ve followed using coconut flour that was successful.

I made some Pumpkin Cookies from Multiply Delicious ‘ site. I didn’t have a banana, so used dates I ran through the food processor. These didn’t hold as well as I’d wanted, but they’re really tasty. I put a little almond butter and coconut cream on one and it was heavenly!

I also made some Pumpkin Raisin Bread, but I can’t find the recipe again. Shoot! There are tons out there though. So good for breakfast. I didn’t use much honey in this to sweeten because the raisins added enough.
