Eat Like Me

I am starting a new series on the blog called “Eat Like Me!”  Since we have changed to a whole foods diet we have seen such amazing results (not only on our waist line but also just in our overall mentality and physicality.)  So, I decided to start posting the recipes we make (aiming for once a week) to show everyone out there how yummy eating healthy can be!  I think I have blogged before on this topic but just a quick recap.  We aim to eat whole 80% of the time.  The main premise is cutting out processed foods and sugars and eating as close to the earth as you can.  You look at the nutritional content not for amount of calories or fat but for the ingredients.  If you don’t recognize the ingredient neither will your body.  Ok, on to some recipes.

Breakfasts:

I pretty much rotate between these two breakfast everyday:

What is it?

  • Bear Naked Fit Vanilla Almond Granola
  • Wallaby Organic Vanilla Yogurt
  • Fresh Berries

This is the best whole foods bread I have found.  All six ingredients are listed on the front and all look healthy to me.  And can you see the address?  Made right here in Denver, I always try to buy local when I can!

What is it? Egg Breakfast Sandwich and orange slices

  • Smoked Gouda Cheese
  • Chipotle Hummus
  • Peppered Turkey
  • Egg over medium
When I get tired of it, I just rotate different parts (different turkey, or ham, or salmon, different cheese, or prepare my egg a different way)
Lunches:
For lunch I usually eat leftovers or healthy snacks.  Nuts, hummus, salmon, fruit, salad, etc
Dinners

What is it? Quinoa, Falafel with Tahini Lime Dipping Sauce, and Lebanese Shish Taouk (chicken skewers) with yogurt and Red Onion Dip.

Quinoa – Mix the following together:

  • – Quinoa (cook per package directions)
  • – Chopped cilantro
  • – Chopped scallions
  • – Sriracha sauce
  • – Juice of half a lime
  • – Feta Cheese
Falafel and Chicken recipes taken from the Whole Foods Diet Cookbook.  Falafel and Chicken

 What is it?  Hodge-podge Potato Dinner.  Recipe from here

What is it? Black Bean Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries.  Burger Recipe from here

Sweet potato and yam mix, coat with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Bake at 400 for approx 45 minutes.  Make sure to stir them around 25 minutes.

 What is it? Baked Southwest Egg Rolls.  Recipe from here

What is it?  Chicken Lettuce Wraps.  I actually can not find where I got this recipe.  I put it on here though for a meal idea 🙂

What is it?  Cous Cous Pita Pockets with homemade pesto.  Recipes here and here

 

What is it?  That is a great question!  I didn’t have any food for today so I had to improvise!  It is Nut Thins with either pesto or hummus, topped with peppered turkey and muenster cheese.  Baked for 6 minutes at 350.  Well since my fridge is running on empty I need to run myself to the store.  I’ll be back next week with more pictures and recipes!
